Tell us about yourself.

Born and raised in the suburb of Montreal, Quebec I grew up a fan of the Montreal Canadians. I started playing hockey from a very young age and played to junior level stopping at age 18.From there, weight training took the most of my time and became my main passion; I quickly discovered that I wanted this to be an integral part of my life… 17 years later and I am living my dream working with some of the Best Physique Athletes in the industry!

Tell us your fitness story.

Again, at age 18, I was honestly a little lost about my future and what/where I wanted to do in my life; I quit school and besides training in the gym and feeling good about myself in those moments, nothing much else was exciting. At age 20, I decided to give myself a chance and applied in a local gym in my hometown. I was fortunate enough to be hired and this passion of a better health kept growing and growing! To the point that I knew exactly what I wanted to do in life and it was to show how fitness lifestyle can be empower both from a physical and psychological standpoint! At age 26, I got introduced into my first Bodybuilding Preparation and competition from my Training Mentor Olympian and Olympian Strength Coach Yannik Morin.I got hooked from Day 1 and now it is what I love and specialized in.

What are your favourite exercises and areas to work out?

The Big 3 Squat, Bench, Deadlift. I am a big fan of the science and application of powerlifting. Also, obviously anything that is related to natural bodybuilding from the training application, hormonal system and nutrition.

Why do you choose Magnum?

Simply put – Pharmaceutical Grade products and a company with integrity. This supplement line works. Moreover, Magnum’s President Markus Kaulius lives and breathes fitness!

Favourite Magnum supplements and why?

My favourite Magnum Supplements are:

THRUST: for the ability to recover, sleep better and get stronger in the gym both in Building and Cutting Season.

OPUS: for its ability to quickly recover from one set to the next intra workout and between workouts as well.

ROCKET SCIENCE: for not only its ability to focus, go forever in the gym as well as how great you are feeling!

What are your goals for the future?

Becoming WBFF Pro Fitness Model World Champion! Sharing alongside my beautiful wife Michelle MacDonald my passion for fitness and working with some of the best natural athletes in Physique/Powerlifting Competitions.

What advice can you give to anyone that wants to take control of their health?

Find a goal that will excite and push you! Whether it’s wanting to play with your kids to jumping into a CrossFit competition, a goal that will become a must and will have a significant on your habits such as food choices, sleep patterns and stress management!

ENTREPRENEUR’S DREAM – MOVING YOUR BUSINESS TO PARADISE WITH J.J AND MICHELLE

I recently had a killer workout and interview with two amazing athletes, coaches, entrepreneurs – Jean-Jacques Barrett and Michelle MacDonald.I love how these two are so committed to living a healthy, Magnum-style lifestyle.

Small victories to enjoy the process!
....
We all know that long term achievement is the summation of the daily little things adding up over time. Qualities such as consistency and the will to improve your practice are two important keys.
….
In Bodybuilding it translates to adding on quality muscle tissue and getting stronger and more endurance in the gym.
….
With all that being said in theory it sounds great « little things are adding up over time to lead to great results ». But in practice, sometimes the final goal or destination can seem to be far away. It is hard from one training session to the next to see incredible physical changes right here and now and that feeling can sap even the most motivated individual.
---
My solution to this is to give each of these session a specific purpose… a victory or a goal to strive for so that at the end of each, you feel that you got closer to your ultimate goal!
.
Things such as:
1. Working on a specific cue or technique for one of your compound lift
2. Achieving 1 or 2 more reps per set of a given weight on a specific exercise
3. Adding one more set on a given exercise
4. Lifting a little heavier on one or two exercise prior to the week before
5. Improving mind muscle connection of a certain body part maximizing the pumping effect of the chosen muscular group
6. Maximizing recovery post workout via better nutrition or sleep
.
All in all so that you are walking out of the session feeling victorious also knowing that you are chipping away for the long run!  It makes the process of Bodybuilding that more enjoyable… Winning every Training Session!

That 9 weeks out @wbff_official Worlds Shoulder Pump!
....
If there is one body part that can change the way your physique looks especially from a V-Taper visual standpoint, it has to be the Medial Deltoid
....
The “Side Delt” is that outside rounded part of the shoulder that when well developed sticks out
....
Responsible mostly for Abduction of the Arm at the shoulder joint (arm going away from the body) it has to be hit and perform as such. Also considered as a Slow Twitch type of muscle fibres, it needs a lot of repetitions and sets to be well developed. Adding on this, since it is a smaller muscle group, it can recover faster so targeted more often
....
Variables for its best development
.
▪️Weekly Volume volume: 20 to 28 sets can be applied with repetitions ranges varying from 8 to 20 reps.
▪️Movements best targeting the Medial Deltoid: DB Lateral Raise, Cable Up Right Rows, Lean Away Lateral Raise, Machine Lateral Raise are all amazing options providing that abduction described earlier
▪️Training Frequency: Up to 3 days a week. You can think one total dedicated shoulder day and 1 or 2 exercises on one or two other training days (post Back Day as an example)
