Here is his life story where, Helmut, at the age of 12 first started training to protect himself from high school bullies. It all started with that he would be noticeable since his friend was “a muscle – machine.” Started only with the intention of self-protection which pushed him into the weight training! Later, he realized that there was more to weight training than self-defense. He just thought to himself that “I was also determined to put myself on a physical par with this schoolmate, my odd twin.” So, at this point, he went on to train harder so he could compete even against his friend in real size and strength. This particularly motivated Helmut to train and grow stronger and stronger and thus his dream rises as to become a fitness model. He almost enjoyed every weight – lifting part from the very beginning. He was only 16 years old when he joined the gym and it was due to his high aspirations and mental conditioning played as a key to his fitness training and competition.
Helmut will generally do supersets where he will work to failure. In between, he will breathe in and out roughly 5 times before moving to the next set in the workout. When it comes to the gym sessions, the weight he uses and the intensity all come out from his instincts. Yet for his long term practice session, he will prepare a calendar of when he will train, what body parts and on exactly what time of the day. He really also advocates correctly in all means and you can witness it through his muscles and symmetry which Helmut connects his mind to his body while training. And he follows a certain set of rules when it comes to exercising and they are as follows.

Stop lifting if he feels the pain
Attention to the proper form
