American bodybuilder Hunter Labrada is determined to come back stronger than ever after failing to improve on the Olympia stage. In a recent video posted on YouTube, Labrada shared a full day of the diet and supplements he’s using to make improvements.
IFBB Pro Hunter Labrada has been a force in the Men’s Open division. Being the son of Hall of Famer Lee Labrada, Hunter gained a lot of attention for his musucularity and size. Hunter established himself quickly with a win at the 2021 Chicago Pro and improved his standing to fourth place at his second Olympia showing.
Labrada entered the 2022 Mr. Olympia with hype and shared a rivalry with fellow standout Nick Walker. However, Hunter did not bring his best and was unable to make the first call-out. The 30-year-old placed seventh at the show. Following his performance, Labrada issued a statement expressing his disappointment. His coach, Ben Chow, admitted they had trouble timing Labrada’s peak, though also reported issues with the overall prep.
Hunter wasn’t deterred from the loss and announced his plan to compete in two shows this season. In the coming weeks, he and his coach intend to figure out how to nail their peaking process.
Labrada made changes to his diet and training regimen to make improvements to his physique in the off-season. He detailed a complete meal plan, which consisted of more whole foods.
A few days later, Labrada shared a massive off-season update where he tipped the scales at 280 pounds while fasting. He decided to switch up his diet and training again based on how his body responded.
