Guy Cisternino - RAW Leg Training

No one will remember the guy that gave up. Period! We have all heard; "It's not how hard you can hit, its how hard you can get hit it and keep on coming." This goes without saying, it's a lot easier said than done. The 2019 season was anything but easy for Guy Cisternino's competitive comeback. Guy only mentions his shoulder surgeries here with GASP CEO Michael Johansson. What we also have to take into account was the rough couple of years leading up to the surgeries. To recap: Guy had a relentless amateur career and turned pro in 2008 and accumulated 6 IFBB Pro wins between 2011 and 2015 securing his top tier ranking in the world of professional bodybuilding. Amidst all of this success Guy's hard working personality would be a double edged sword digging into his own recovery process. Hectic travel and appearance schedules and suffering from (at the time) inexplicable sub-dermal burning, his health and hence his competition placing suffered in 2017 to 2018. Finally we get to his double shoulder surgery in 2018 and flash forward to his competitive comeback in 2019 and we get an idea of what he's ACTUALLY coming back from. Now time to get his shit kicked in during his comeback trail. Guy's comeback was already impossible. Throw in a slew of contests that should be a cakewalk for the "hood on world off," 6 pro wins, ball busting Guy we have come to expect and he gets his ass handed to him not once, not twice, not even 3 times but 4 straight contests. Self doubt started to creep in on EVEN Guy Cisternino. "I had to remind myself what I said before." Guy also had to remind himself that he's not done. Check out his visit to the new destination in Allen, Texas, his raw leg training and raw interview with GASP CEO Michael Johansson.
