Most people start their day by waking up and maybe eating a small breakfast and then getting on to the rest of their day.  Maize graduate Josh Boyle starts his day completely different. Boyle has to wake up at a specific time each day, he eats six to seven meals a day and a couple visits to the gym between that. Boyle is a competitive bodybuilder.

“I started probably working out like at the end of my sophomore year, [at the] end of wrestling [season],” Boyle said.

Now 18, Boyle has been packing on muscle and perfecting his diet for two and half years. 

“Some people do it for the attention of females or they want to get attention,” Boyle said. “That not necessarily why I do it. I would say do it for yourself because if you’re doing it for any other reason besides personal satisfaction you’re never going to stay with it.”

Boyle just competed in his first competition two weeks ago. He took first in the teen division and second in middleweight class at the Oklahoma Grand Prix. Boyle plans to do more competitions like this in the future.  Boyle said his next competition is about 31 weeks away.

Boyle said he will start contest preperation at about 24 weeks before the contest. Which consists of a big diet change and lots of social and personal sacrifices. 

“You are a sculptor, you’re sculpting your own body but with weights. It’s a funny way to look at it but it’s true because I mean you have different exercises that build different parts of your body,” Boyle said.
