Muscle & Strength Interview

Muscle & Strength Interview

Muscle and Strength: Let’s talk about your Youtube channel. You have quite a following. Tell us about your Youtube videos…what can expect to find and learn?

Victor Costa: Well, I wanted to give folks a sense of my training principles. I wanted my following to get a sense that I am a competent trainer and that bodybuilding is about the specifics, the subtleties. Anyone can throw weights around, but not everyone can build a complete physique, this is what I teach, a taste of what the videos and audios offer. Essentially, an introduction to my methods.

Muscle and Strength: You bring up a good topic…caloric intake. Do you believe the average hardgainer may be under-eating?

I have curled as much as 185 on the straight bar for some ugly reps.

I only recently found out about Victor Costa when browsing Youtube workouts.
