Devin Truss Workout
In Devin’s early days of training, his main goal was to develop strength. Now though, he focuses more on his physique and muscular development.
“I go to the gym so I can look good outside of it.”
Over the years, Devin has started putting more emphasis on his ‘mind-to-muscle connection’. He tries to maintain 100% control using weights, if he can’t, he’ll lower it to avoid the risk of injury.
Here’s one of Devin’s back workouts as shown in this Youtube video. He sticks to 6-8 reps per set for heavy compound exercises but may go higher when doing isolations. He also likes to pause for a second or two between each rep to really focus on squeezing the muscle and getting the most out of each movement.
- Barbell lat rows, 3-5 sets of 6-8 reps (1 sec pause between each rep)
- Pullups, 3 sets of 8-10 reps
- Dumbbell rows, 3 sets of 8-10 reps
- Rope Pulldowns, 3 sets of 10-12 reps
Devin also might add in a few sets of calf exercises at the end of his workout, such as standing calf raises. He likes to do those at higher reps to feel ‘the burn’.
Devin likes to do hanging leg raises and kneeling rope pulls to activate his core. The third and last of his ab exercises is usually crunches. Unsurprisingly, Devin focuses on his form here too – making sure to blow out all air and squeeze his abdominals during each rep.
Devin Truss Diet
Devin’s diet, much like his training, has changed over the years. While at first he ate a lot of meats and other calorie dense foods to bulk up. His diet is now 80% vegan according to him.
It consists of a lot of plants and herbs, as well as legumes which support his gut in addition to serving as excellent fat-burning foods.
