    Recreational Bodybuilder to Competitive Bodybuilder - An Interview with Shelby Starnes

    Shelby is a successful National-level Bodybuilder & Powerlifter who has helped hundreds of athletes get into the greatest shape of their lifes. He is quickly becoming known as one of the top diet and bodybuilding prep coaches and he’s here to lay down the law.

    In this interview Shelby shares several strategies for getting leaner and more muscular, aswell as covering some of the common mistakes bodybuilders make when trying to look their best.

    We hope you enjoy it and please discuss here!

    ------------------------

    I'd also like to welcome Shelby to the Wannabebig writing team. Look out for his Q & A column in the coming weeks and if you want to submit a question, you can do so here - Questions for Shelby Starnes

    There seems to have been an issue with www.wannabebig.com around the time of updating the article which was causing the browser to freeze.

    Everything should be good now, so check out the article!

    Very good read and a great way to introduce Shelby to the site to the members not familar with him. CP worked with him for a bit and it certainly paid off for him.

    Very cool to see Shelby on here.

    I worked with him in 2008, but progress stalled due to my lack of commitment. I cant tell you how mad I am at myself for faltering. I recently dug up his old emails from when I hired him and I'm currently committing myself to his prescribed diet. I'm going to make up for my lack of commitment!

    Check out my journal if anyone wants to follow my carb cycle diet from Shelby. Will be doing it until I hit a lean 175-180lbs. Starting this week!

    This^^^

    Simply put, if you follow what he tells you to do, you will get in the best shape of your life in no time. I think the transformations he has performed on people speak for themselves.

    Glad to have him around. Is he a forum member?

    Just bumping this. Some of you guys that might not know of Shelby. He's a super strong dude with a powerlifting background and gets in some of the sickiest conditioning on the national scene. Start posting some questions in the sticky!

    If you have ANY questions for Shelby, send them to askshelby@wannabebig.com

    He already has some great questions for the first article and if you get yours in quick they'll probably make the second article!
