I don’t care if you’re 25 35 or 45 if
we’re all judged the same on the stage so it really doesn’t matter on my mornings when I do cardio which is
pretty much everyone even leg day wake up yeah go get on the stairs and I’ll be
like 45 minutes on the stairs and that’s it then I go ahead my first meal and I
come train I had three more meals and I trying in that two more meals I go to
bed then I have a shake and all over again
me and Dallas Both went to Bethel University in West Tennessee I was
actually his coach since freshman year I think Dallas has worked as it goes
back to when he was a kid he was raised on a farm in Blue Goose Tennessee and
then whenever I coached him in football I mean he always every single play you
never took a playoff he would always do what was asked of him he worked harder
than anybody else and so it just kept falling over to football in the
bodybuilding tour in the littles University where I went played football
Bethel University in North West Tennessee I was walking through the
dorms and some of the football buddies came up to me and I said dude you’re not going to
believe the size of this freshman he’s bigger than you and I was like whatever
so later on in the day I actually ran into him and I yeah he was a lot bigger
than me I think the thing that we get is we both get each other’s work ethic and
he’s a very hard worker and one of the hardest-working people I know and so
you know we get in the gym it’s just go time we got to talk we
don’t have to worry about life we dont have to worry about you know anything we just
get it done and we’ve been doing that for so long now that uh you know it’s
just second nature Dallas actually came up to my room one night and he said I
think I’m done with football I think I’m going to try this bodybuilding thing about that time he hit a front double bicep and at that time I started following bodybuilding I was
done with football so I was following it and man when he hit that I mean I knew he had
it in him I was in my sister’s graduation she was
graduating from college sitting there and I get a text from Aaron I call him later on
and we started talking RedCon shows the logo I mean we’ve been on the
phone like 10 minutes I was like oh yeah I’m in I felt like Dallas McCarver
represented redcon1 for a few reasons number one when I thought of redcon one
did I meant to me blue-collar work ethic and Dallas is known for being a hard
worker comes from blue-collar roots you know when he gets in the gym he moves
weight he doesn’t complain he just does it I felt like that really represented
what I wanted the brand to mean I know he is a big believer in kind of golden
rule you know acts how you want people to treat you you treat them the same way
and I just felt like honestly that he was a good fit in general the whole look
of the brand my ideas and I knew that he wasn’t somebody that had been heavily
covered in the past he’s just great personality great athlete tremendously
strong and amazing potential for the future so it all kind of combines to the
perfect partnership it’s pretty consistent with Chad you
know it’s we’re going to use you know these food sources and we’re just going
to change the amount here there and you know I eat grilled steak grilled chicken and
fish and rice and potatoes you know some creamy rice too and you know I do use
some whey in there but you know it’s really consistent and it’s just steady
little changes here and there but you know the food the core food is
consistent as is everything with Chad Basically it’s just a form of deep tissue
work you know we started off with a cupping and then it was you know we
worked him she started with her elbows and her hands and her fists and then
now when you know she’s scraping tools and all kinds of crazy stuff and I mean
man she just keeps me healthy keeps me mobile she really knows her stuff you
all bunch of techniques we used a bunch of adhesion tools break things up we use
cups sometimes but we basically do is just scraping all the scar tissue and
metabolic waste so you can get really striated and really grow and just break
up those fibers so he’s really getting some growth out of everything he’s
training the closer were getting to Arnold we really want to break it up
because we want him to really get the striations you want getting on stage so
that’s going to be the most important part of using these tools at this point
and then about two weeks before will stop using them and go a little easier
and do more of a flushing because we don’t want any inflammation or anything
into the muscles we want to just keep it nice and hydrated and fluid Dallas would be one of the bigger guys that anyone works with we worried about the weight on the
table at one point yeah I was close waking up like between 305
and 310 right now and be honest with you like I certainly come pretty
close conditioning las hopefully within another two to three weeks you know I’ll have a relative idea of exactly where I need to be It’s funny because people who look at
me and they see this 300-pound body builder and you know it’s never been
about size for me how can you say that what’s the truth because like when I got
on played football you know I was 300 pounds I dieted it down and did my first show like
241 and you know I’ve been building since then but at the same time it’s
like even when I dieted down the first time I was a pretty big guy I mean I was
a big kid for me it’s always just about really improving weak areas and I’m
still trying to you know find that magic number to nail it on show day to fully
commit to this and in your early 20s or even teens it’s asking a lot okay so a
lot of willpower you know you got to tell your friends no girls no
whatever and it’s not always easy but you know obviously I think it’s worth it
