HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

Collin: Heavy lifting 4 days per week, cardio 5 days per week, rest 2 days per week. Split up major muscles to allow for better recovery (my sleep schedule varies, so they need time off). Back/Bis, Chest/Tris, Shoulders/Traps, Upper and lower legs twice a week-split with the varying upper body workouts. I try to run 2-5 miles on a treadmill for cardio, depending on time, always right after lifting!
Nutrition is so important to me to maintain balance. I have a wide-ranging sleep schedule, so I have a few secrets that really help me. High-protein, low carb diet, lots of water, fruits and some vegetables (I’m getting better on that one). Protein supplements must be selected carefully, I avoid high milk-proteins and basic whey. I try to use the highest grade isolate protein, to maximize intake post workout, and before bed. Otherwise, I tend to put on more weight than I’d like. Biggest difference-maker for me in the past year though: absolutely no soda, and always eat breakfast before 9am. I’ve actually been healthier after eating breakfast daily. You can’t compromise on that! 

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

Collin Myers: This is a great question. I compete with myself. There will always be stronger people and weaker people, but you must always just focus on being a stronger, better you. I’ve seen the health challenges that many face, and I think a majority of these can be avoided simply by getting up, and getting at it in the gym! I’ve always believed that when we are lazy, we tend to stay lazy, but when people that get active, tend to stay active. (Little spin on physics laws, ha). 

HFR: Do you believe that being fit and healthy has contributed to your successful career?

Collin Myers: Absolutely! I don’t care what you do, you need to take care of your body just as much as you do your finances, or your family, or friends! It’s all about balance. And I’ve always said to myself: on good days, workout; on bad days, workout even harder. You’ll end up exhausted and at least feel like you have control of your own physical health. 

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

Collin Myers: The belief that we can do all things we set our mind to! And I personally feel more empowered after I push myself past what I thought I could do before. It gives you a new sense of confidence. 

HFR: What tips would you give your fans and our readers to staying healthy?

Collin Myers: Get up, get active, and drink tons of water. Drinking water gets overlooked so much now. We want flavored drinks, or carbonation, and of course alcohol. But the more water you drink, the healthier your body will be. Your body is on average, 60-70% water. The more you drink, the healthier you will be, feel, and look. Surprisingly, I’ve had more energy and lost weight/gained muscle mass since drinking more water daily. Also, Get a scale that measures your water weight, muscle mass, BMI. Compete with yourself to be better. Every day. 

HFR: Share something that most people don’t know about you!

Collin Myers: I love running and workouts with my dogs, too! They are still young and have TONS of energy. Running my Husky/German Shepherd mix is a workout all in its own!
