A lot of us have slacked off on our training a bit, during this global health crisis. Not Antoine Vaillant however, who showed us recently that he might actually be more jacked now than he was before this whole thing started.
Vaillant is a Canadian pro bodybuilder and fitness model, who has been competing for the better part of eight years. Competing mostly under the IFBB and CBBF banners, he has seen varying levels of success over the years. His best showing to date has to be scoring 4th place at the 2018 Toronto Pro.

I decided to do a post in honor of #humpday like a true #influencer . . SHREDDED GLUTES : The final stage to being RIPPED. I see that goal like the final boss in a video game. The last level you need to reach to have your conditioning nailed close to 100% … It's something I stress about every prep so far. Something I obsess over, especially at the end. I'm scared to have soft glutes onstage. It's probably the main concern in prep I repeatedly tell @dorian_hamilton like a crazy paranoid person. Should we call this "assorexia"? Or maybe "Softgluteuphobia" ? DISCUSS. . Do you like shredded glutes? If you are a woman : do you find them gross? Is it a necessity onstage? 👇 Comment below! 👇 . @ryderwear shoes in 2nd pic 10% off code AV10 on www.ryderwear.com !
This was all expected to change, as Antoine Vaillant was looking forward to coming to Arnold South America with a new and improved physique. However, when that show was canceled, it would seem that his long-awaited return to competition has been delayed. This was clearly disappointing for Antoine, who has been working to battle back from bicep injuries and has put in a lot of work to slim down in recent months.
Now, Vaillant has taken to Instagram to give his fans a glimpse of what they would have seen, had he been able to compete. It is safe to say that he has not been wasting his time in isolation, as he is completely bricked up. He may even look better than the last time we saw him.
“Some clips I took after today’s garage workout. Weight this morning was 285.8 lbs… finally went back down. I went up as high as 300lbs some evenings… now trying to be around 280lbs. I might lose some fullness since it’s been a few weeks since we released the gas pedal because of all the shows being post poned. @dorian_hamilton is hoping that we all have answers by the end of may. That way a plan could be to start prep again in may. It would be the first time starting prep in this condition at a low weight like this. I’m looking forward to compete it’s been awhile lol! Geez.”

Antoine Vaillant is clearly excited and ready to get back to action. It would be hard to say we are not equally intrigued to see him on the stage again. Unfortunately, we will just have to wait a bit longer to see it.
