Interview with this Month’s Featured Model: Derek Logan
How did you get into modeling?
A few years into bodybuilding I had connected with a couple photographers and slowly got into it. Most surprisingly didn’t require you to be in “stage condition” so it wasn’t as stressful to prep for a shoot as it was a bodybuilding contest
What are your goals in the profession? Do you see it as a full-time occupation or an avocation?
As of right now, definitely not full time. As for my goals, just as with bodybuilding I love to showcase what the human body is capable of and hopefully inspire others in the process.
If it's an avocation, what are your other career goals?
My main aspiration at the moment is to be a Doctor of Physical Therapy
Looking as good as you do isn't easy. What are your training methods?
I have trained consistently since I was 14. As for my methods I go through long periods of time where I’m in a surplus and make sure to provide a stimulus and promote recovery as quick and long as necessary. Nothing very strategic, same principles over time and intensity is always raised.
How about diet?
For cutting down I keep roughly the same foods but once again just less. Go as long as I can with food as high as possible to hopefully keep the muscle bellies full and let my training intensity be the constant variable.
Do you plan to compete in bodybuilding or fitness shows or have you already?
Absolutely, I have competed in the past, but I plan on competing in the next year as I have bulked for the last year and a half and have hopefully made the improvements to be more competitive on stage. Overall, the goal is to bring a clear crisp look that displays balance and is looked at in an artistic manner. I had just competed in the Kentucky Open and was very pleased with the look I brought. My goal right now is to stay around the same body fat percentage in case the interest to compete one more time before I start grad school catches my interest.
How do you kick back and relax?
Love playing guitar hero, eating sushi, and playing ping pong. As of recently I have gotten into listening to podcasts.
How about some favorites?
Favorite therapy of course is throwing the headphones in when I work out and going to my own world.
Singer/Musician or Group:
Favorite music group is “Panic at The Disco”
The Phoenix by Fall Out Boy
Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring
How would you state your most important value in life?
If other individuals aren’t better for knowing you, you’re not being the best person you can be.
Thanks, Derek. Awesome working with you and look forward to next time.
