Eric Helms of 3D Muscle Journey is an accomplished natural bodybuilder, world renowned trainer and fitness trainer. He participated in bodybuilding several times last year, but in 2020 he took on the challenge of competing in three different weight training sports: weightlifting, strongman, and powerlifting. In this episode, we discuss how he balanced the competitive demands of these different sports.
Helms best describes himself as someone way too obsessed with one thing, which is lifting. It influenced his intellectual activities, career choices, and personal activities as an athlete.
If you’re in the bodybuilding scene, you’ve likely seen Helms’ competition pictures or heard me talk about bodybuilding coaches on podcasts, videos, and social media. If you’re interested in powerlifting, you may have heard him talk about weight loss or coaching from Bryce Lewis.
If you’re into weightlifting, you may not have heard from him, but that’s because, as he self-deprecatingly says, he’s the least good at it. And if that wasn’t enough, he recently started venturing into the sport of strongman. No matter what he does, it always lifts.
