Frank Yang Interview

How and why did you get into Bodybuilding?

I got into bodybuilding because I wanted to be the fastest animal in the world – the cheetah. Ever since I was a kid, I had a huge obsession with big cats and speed. To combine my passions, I decided that I would do anything I can to run faster. I hated being a human as a child because we are just so damn slow and weak compared to animals and beasts. In short, I wanted to run the 100 meter dash in 3 seconds because that’s what a cheetah could do.

To deny and overcome my human, all too human physique, agility, and mentality, sometimes I would even crawl on the floor in my dad’s office and chase after his employees or hide in my maid’s closest and jump out, bite on her neck, suck it so hard that I left a permanent hickie on her neck when she opened it.

After I learned to read and acquired language (one positive attribute to being a human, one which could eventually lead to the improvement of the body), I started to read a lot of books and eventually discovered that there are ways to run faster with intelligent training, and that with correct and scientifically proven methods, anybody can become more athletic, more aesthetic, and faster.

One of the first things i realized was that I was too weak to be fast. I learned that speed is a matter of power, and that power is a matter of relative strength. I discovered that the old myth of having muscles and undergoing weight training would make you stiff and slow was mostly false. I used to look at Olympic sprinters on TV, although I admired their beautifully sculpted physique, I wondered why all that muscles didn’t slow them down. Later I learned that as long as you stay lean, get stronger relatively by making sure that your strength base increases faster than your body weight, muscles aren’t going to slow you down, but will only make you faster.

I spent most of my training career focusing on gaining relative strength. Muscles have always been the by products of my training because as long as I was getting stronger on all my core lifts, some muscle gains were inevitable.

However, it wasn’t until recently that I went on a true bodybuilding type routine and focused on nothing but putting on size.

I guess I didn’t want to be a cheetah anymore. After getting into art and philosophy and realizing the complexity of the human brain, and the amazing feats that human beings can achieve through mind-body connection, I wanted to be a MAN instead – specifically, an ALPHA male, as I looked up to Greek statues in the Hellenistic period, where unlike the sculptures in the Classical and Archaic periods that were mostly expressionless and “mindless”, these sculptures were not only beautiful physically, but had an intellectual and emotional aspects to them as well…with their beautiful minds sheltered, protected, and perfectly situated within and by their muscle-bounded “shells”.

I realized that that’s the way a man should strive to be – a big lump of hard muscles…that could dream and think as big as I could lift.

What advice would you give to people who wish to achieve your Aesthetic Physique?

It all depends on the individual – their genetics, and their past and current training experiences, body types, and etc. I can get away with a dirty bulk by eating whatever the hell I want simply because I have a fast metabolism. This advice would not suit well for someone who naturally has a slower metabolism, there is no black and white answer to this question but I would like to stress the importance of diet. It’s well known that 90 percent of the time, when you aren’t losing fat as fast and as well as you’d like, it’s the diet but not the training itself that’s the pitfall. But the same could be said when one tries to bulk. You can’t take eating lightly. For most people who aren’t getting muscles, it’s the amount of food intake that’s holding them back, not the training. Most people I know, even the slightly motivated ones, train hard enough to put enough tear and stress on their muscles for growth. It’s what they are doing OUTSIDE the gym, those are the missing puzzles.

You have to eat as hard as you train, and take the same no-bull, balls-to-wall attitude when it comes to eating, whether you are clean bulking or dirty bulking.

Everyone has techniques about how to psych themselves up before a heavy set of weights. But I’ve never seen anybody psyching themselves up to finish that last portion of your epic meal. Sometimes I shout “EAT THIS SHIT!” into the plate or spit on the food for extra motivation. Other times I pretend that the foods themselves have as much desires to be eaten by me as I have for them. It’s like when a girl isn’t already wet or horny for me, I would have n0 desire in fucking them. So to me, I have to pretend that the foods in the plate are desperate and wants to be eaten badly, or else it would just be like fucking a dead corpse or a sleeping wife.

That’s how I mentally prepare myself to eat. You can try it if you want, but if it doesn’t work, then come up with your own creative solutions.

As for diet, I don’t really follow a strict diet for my current bulking cycle.

My rule of thumb is getting at least 40 – 60 grams of protein every 2.5 hours.

This could be whey protein powder, or chicken breasts/pork chop/steak, and etc.

Frank Yang

I heard you did a 6000 calorie bulk and put on 30 pounds of body-mass, going from 143 pounds to 173 pounds in less than a month. How did you do it?

After the protein intake is taken care of, I try to stuff down my throat with as much carbohydrates and fats as possible till I get so full that I have to vomit. If I am really up for it, I chug down another serving of liquid calorie like a small can of tomato juice or yogurt and of course, sleep for 10 hours everyday.

As a Natural Bodybuilder, what are your views on Performance Enhancing Drugs?

I have nothing against steroids. The only thing I have against people who use steroids are people who lie about it. The reason why I kept emphasizing that I am natural isn’t because I am against steroids, it’s mainly because I want to give my genetics the credit they deserve. If I do decide to go on gear, I would expect a much more prolific, efficient, and monstrous bulk and would not be hesitated to talk about it openly.

Personally I would only jump on gear when there’s nothing left in my genetic potential to give out. I knew I could bulk up to 185 natural, so why pull out the drugs now? Why not reserve the steroids in later stages of my training/life when they are really needed?

Do you have any plans to compete in the future?

I do plan on competing in a bodybuilding show. My goal is not to be a full time bodybuilder yet, but merely to provide myself with a chance to get oiled up in a thong looking juicy and aesthetic as fuck while playing the violin during free pose downs.

I don’t think the world has yet to seen such a contradictory sigh where the mental and the physical are flexed at the same time. It would make a good piece of performance art.

What are your long term goals?

My long term goal is to make Tom Cruise aware of my youtube Video and get my idol to watch the video I made for him.
