Canadian bodybuilder Iain Valliere is a promising Men’s Open contender who many believe to be in the mix of Olympia title contention. Although he missed a step in his last appearance, he’s determined to turn things around and get back on track. In a recent YouTube video, Valliere shared his shredding diet two weeks from the 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow.
Iain Valliere started competing as a Men’s Open contender in the IFBB Pro League in 2015. He turned in several strong performances in national competitions such as the 2016 Vancouver Pro and Toronto Pro Supershow. In 2018, Valliere extended his run with back-to-back fourth-place finishes at the Indy Pro and Vancouver Pro. The victories earned him an invite to the Mr. Olympia contest, where he placed 14th.
Valliere continued to work his way up the ranks. He narrowly missed out on gold at the 2019 Toronto Pro Supershow. While he did not make it to the Olympia in 2019, he maintained his consistency with top-four placings at the Vancouver Pro and Tampa Pro. He scored the top prize at the 2020 New York Pro and finished seventh at the Mr. Olympia. Then he earned the 2021 Texas Pro and 2021 Tampa Pro titles and got seventh at the Olympia.
Last season, Valliere came out on top of the 2022 Vancouver Pro and entered the Mr. Olympia brimming with confidence. However, he missed the mark on stage in Las Vegas last December. He finished 11th. Following the result, he opened up on his challenges with peaking for the show.
Valliere made the case for eliminating the Men’s 212 division earlier this year. He explained that the 212 should be absorbed by the Open class given the rise in contenders switching divisions as some have found success including former 212 Olympia champ and Open runner-up Derek Lunsford and Shaun Clarida.
Iain Valliere revealed he left Patrick Tuor to rejoin coach Matt Jansen two months ago. He believes the reforged partnership would put him in a better place for his return at the 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow. Then, he showed off a jacked physique update where he weighed 280 pounds and detailed his new diet and training plan under Jansen.

In a recent YouTube video, Iain Valliere shared his full day of eating and supplements he’s using two weeks out from the 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow.
“We’re just about to have meal one getting all my digestive supplements and we got our betaine, digestive enzymes, digestive gut health and the zinc,” said Valliere. “I’m taking all these with my first and last meal. Two caps and the zinc carnosine. I’ve been doing one of these with every meal. Then dosing this tube instead of doing two once or twice a day I’m just taking one with all six of my meals.”

Iain Valliere is certain he’s in a good spot going into the upcoming contest. He revealed not much had changed in his preparations under Jansen but hinted at the possibility of a revamped drug protocol in the final stages of prep.
Olympia judge Terrick El Guindy praised Valliere for his impressive physique and work ethic earlier this month. Guindy highlighted a need for Valliere to level up his back and calves along with his posing skills. Meanwhile, the 32-year-old has focused on keeping his weight under control in the 2023 off-season. Valliere gave fans an update on his progress going into his next outing where he promised his best look yet.
Valliere appears confident about his chances at the upcoming 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow. He will aim to earn an invite to Olympia, taking place November 2-5 later this year.
