Musclemania® Lone Star Champion Steven Smiley stormed the stage in his first competition. The 5’8″, 165 lbs., 26 year old is a nuclear engineer and Houston native. “I tried to watch what I ate by counting calories to hit my body composition goal,” Steven says. “I used dieting methods such as intermittent fasting for 2 years. I would change the fasting window depending on how aggressive I wanted to cut or how slow I wanted to bulk. I lifted weights to failure almost 7 days a week for 45 to 90 min per session. I also implemented cardio depending on how aggressive I wanted to cut by running miles to half marathons.” Steven will be competing in the Musclemania® Physique division.
