  • Antoine, on your website, how often do you post member exclusive stuff? I'm thinking of becoming a member!

    • Do you ever get a little nervous when John writes one of these workouts for you? I'm about to do John's "particle smasher" workout for legs that he put up and I know if I do it balls to the wall I'm gonna be toast. Doing explosive squats after all the crazy sets before I even get there has me cringing.

      • Antoine can you come down to Australia? You have no idea how many fans you got here!

        • hey man, i watch your video's all the time, you seem like a cool guy, big fan! i have a few question's for you if you'd be kind enough to take the time?;

          #1. i'm doing my first show in September this year, i have a ridiculous big tribal tattoo that goes from my shoulder all the way down to my wrist(i got this before getting serious about competing), i know this may not affect my placings in smaller show's but what in the bigger show's? do you think the judges might choose the guy without the tattoo instead of me? even if my condition & overall size was better? slightly aware it could limit how far i could go in the sport. :/

          #2. the left side of my upper body(shoulder & tricep mainly) are slightly smaller, & look slightly different to the right side, the symertery is way off, which make's bad practice for the relaxed pose's i'll have to do on contest day, do your know how i can fix this, & given the short amount of time i have to work on it, do you know how i could hide it when i do my 1/4 relaxed turns on stage?

          #3. how do you get the right colour on stage? i see amatuer's that are at times are too dark, or not dark enough, i'd like to get this right first time, could you let me know what tanning products you use? do you have a spray tan? do you get a natural tan via sunbeds?
          what is your usual process for getting your skin looking like it does when you get on stage? (i have very pale skin in the off season.)

          thanks man.

          • Hey Mr. Vaillant,
            I've never seen you practicing face pulls in your videos. In my view it's a great exercise which gives your shoulder a nice look.
            What do you think about face pulls - and if you think these exercise is good too, why you don't perform it?

                1. I watched one of your old training vids (before mr canada) and you did after a back workout "the Hang". Why do you do "the Hang"? Stretches it your backmuscles ??

                2. Unfortunately chest is my weakest bodypart. Which exercises do you recommend to build up as fast as possible the upper chest??

                3. Is any tour through Austria planned, ?? it would be too awesome to meet you!!
                It adds blood and increase pumps while stretching the muscle, good for muscle growth!

                Try doing preexhaust by doing isolation first,,, then doing presses and such

                and yes i am going to austria april 4th... i am touring with Universal.. go on www.UniversalUSA.com for more info!

                thanks man.
                1. just cover it up...

                2. Go check if you have any imbalances as far as posture and etc

                3. Always get a good base tan under the pro tan... its a good safety!

                    Talk to Tony Doherty about it, he looks after all the IFBB's when they come over here, you will love it!

                    Another question Antoine, your latest vid about you doing cardio on the bike, you mentioned you did 9 intervals was it? But i didn't catch how long each interval was.....can you describe your cardio? Do you sprint 30 seconds, rest 1 minute and do that 9 times?

                    Thanks bro!

                      rest
                      rest

                        • Hi antoine what do you think is the best exercise for lower triceps(around elbow) and for inner chest???

                          Comment


                          • Hi Antoine. Do you count reps/sets when working out in the off-season? If not how do you keep track of your progress? Thank you!

                              • Hey Antoine,
                                a couple of weeks before your debut. How much is your current weight? The last picture of you were great. Do you think you are right on track, short behind or to fast with your diat?
                                Thank you!
