MEET SCOTT DENNIS

Raised in a small town in Vermont, I grew up exceling at both Baseball and Football.  I went to college to play baseball, but an injury where I tore my labrum and rotator cuff ended my career.  I would graduate from the University of Vermont with a degree in Accounting and move to Boston where have I resided since then working in Finance.  Competition has always been in my blood and without it I just felt empty, I felt like I was lacking purpose.  I started training for sports when I was 15 years old and fell in love with Bodybuilding when I was exposed to it from magazines lying around the gym.  A friend had mentioned a local NPC competition coming up, so I hired a coach and went on to win my first show.  After that I was addicted, a few years later here I am an IFBB Pro, IFBB Champion and Olympian.

On Being an ALLMAX Athlete

It’s an absolute blessing that I have been able to join as an ALLMAX Athlete.  Being a kid looking at bodybuilding magazines it was only a dream to work with such an incredible, successful and respectful company.  That dream is now a reality, and now I have the opportunity to expand and grow as not only an athlete but as a person with the backing of ALLMAX. The supplements are top of the line and they are only going to help me become a better athlete.  I believe that our mindsets when it comes to hard work, dedication, and inspiring others completely align which makes for a successful relationship.

Question & Answer with Scott Dennis

Sushi, five guys and donuts!

Oatmeal with protein powder and almond butter.

Travel and explore new foods and restaurants with my girlfriend.

I got into fitness at a very young age (15).  I wanted to be stronger for sports, which turned into me no longer wanting to be such a little guy which I was for a long time.

What don’t I listen to is a better question?  Anything but country music!  The funny thing is I look like I’m probably listening to something hard core but I’m not likely listening to someone like Adele.

Several wrist wraps to match any outfit I wear that day, Aminos, weight belt, towel and headphones.

People not putting their weights away.

Scott Dennis’ Nutrition Plans

Intro: My meal plan consists of eating between 5 meals a day.

Always high protein whether offseason or in prep.  Carbs and fats vary depending on what part of the season I’m in.  Offseason I like moderate to high carbs with moderate fats.  When it gets hard to eat, I will up my fats as they are more calorie dense.  During prep I usually start with moderate carbs, no fat… the further I get the more I will drop my carbs to the point where I’m at no carbs.  Fats will come up when I drop carbs, but they will also get to a point in my prep where I’m doing no fats with no carbs on some days.

My Proteins: Egg whites and whole eggs for breakfast, Ground Beef, Sirloin, Salmon, Turkey Breast, Chicken breast, and tilapia closer to shows.

My Carbs: oats, cream of rice, cream of wheat, Ezekiel bread, white rice, sweet potato, red potato, and grits.  Offseason… cereal and pancakes!

My Fats: Variety of nut butter, nuts, and avocado are my go to.  Offseason I will also add some type of oil.

My Veggies: Brussel sprouts and green beans.

 

Typical day would look like:

Meal 1: 12 oz egg whites, ½ cup oats

Meal 2: 6 oz chicken breast, ½ cup white rice

Meal 3: 6 oz sirloin, ½ cup sweet potato

Meal 4: 6 oz chicken breast, ½ cup white rice

Meal 5: 6 oz sirloin, 1 cup oats, 2 scoops ISOFLEX
