We're back with the second installment in our "My Favorite Workout" series, and this is one for the guys. I sat down with a member of our purchasing department to hear all about his fitness routine.
 
1. Name
Steve Battaglia
 
2. Age 
25
 
3. What is your role at eVitamins? 
I'm a buyer, and I've been at eVitamins for almost one year.
 
4. What is your favorite form of exercise? 
Lifting metal is what I enjoy doing the most. 
 
5. How long have you been practicing this form of exercise? How did you get into it?
I used to play football, and I started lifting about ten years ago as part of my training; at that point I realized how much I really enjoyed lifting and all of the benefits it provided for me and my body. Even though football eventually came to an end, my drive to stay in shape persisted beyond that time in my life, and lifting is now a regular part of my lifestyle.
 
6. What do you like best about this workout?
The ability to constantly challenge myself in the weight room is something that I find really valuable. I can always find ways to improve and go harder and heavier than last time, and that's something that gets me really locked in and pushes me to keep going. Stress relief is an added benefit of lifting. When I get in that mentality where I'm focused only on lifting and the effect it's having on my body, it also helps my mind to relax. Overall, building muscle and gaining strength are what help me to feel my best.
 
7. How often do you train?
I like to keep a pretty consistent schedule, getting in the weight room six days a week so I can work each body group twice per week. A typical workout for me usually lasts between one and one-and-a-half hours.
 
8. Explain your diet and how it helps you work toward your fitness goals and maintain your results.
Maintaining a clean, healthy diet is something that is crucial. Before and after my morning workouts, I make sure to load up on good carbs like oatmeal, fruit or protein bars. Then I make sure I stay away from carbs as much as possible until the following morning, my next workout. The rest of the day I eat a high-protein diet, often containing chicken breast, low-fat cottage cheese and lots of greens, and I'm good to go.
 
9. What supplements do you use on a regular basis?
10. Any tips for success for someone interested in trying this workout?
Weight-lifting is something that you have to work hard at to see results, so being the hardest worker in the room is something that will set you apart from the rest. Being strong mentally is more important than being physically strong when it comes to weight training. Persistence and commitment are two qualities that you need to drill into your head in order for you to get the results you want.
 
Check back next week for another installment of this series and learn how another member of the eVitamins team practices what we preach. Have a great day!
