Not just one win in Master's, But the Master's Overall win.. Not just one win in the Men's Bodybuilding Open, But also the Men's Open Overall win! That's exactly what Sid McThomas did when he stepped onstage at the 2014 NPC Seven Feathers Championships in Canyonville, Oregon. He set his sights on victory, and victory and more is what he received. Sid is one of the more positive role models in the Northwest and his willingness to share his experience and offer his help to competitors has earned him a reputation of respect, honor, and hard work! Check out Sid's feature right here and don't forget to congratulate him next time you see him at one the many shows in the Pacific Northwest.

1. When and why did you decide to start competing?
I started competing in 2003 at the Lonnie Teper West Coast Collegiate Classic in Pasadena, California. Jay Cutler was the guest poser, I was totally blown away seeing his muscular physique.. that's when I caught that itch and the rest is history. 

2. What makes you want to go farther in the sport?
What makes me want to go further in the sport is the drive and the willingness to learn more and help teach others. There is never to much information the mind can't receive.

3. What type of training do you implement during contest prep and the in the off-season?
During prep I like to incorporate volume training, pause set/squeeze techniques and FST-7. Off season I like to focus on bringing up weak points on my body training them twice a week to show improvements for the next time I step on a stage.  

4. What is your favorite type of dieting meals and what is your favorite type of cheat meal?
I enjoy all of my prep food from grilled chicken, ground turkey meat, lean beef, tilapia and any/all carb sources. My favorite cheat meal is pizza, burger and fries with the works on it. Lol. Who doesn't love a good cheat meal after putting in the hard work with your diet.

5. Who are some of the people that have helped you along the way to get where you are now in life or in the sport?
My key components of my success I have to say have been Twan Anthony Chacon, Jim Stark, IFBB Pro Lisa Stark, IFBB Pro Bleu Taylor, IFBB Pro Denis Sergovski and the Rhino Fit Studio family who have believed in me from the minute I met them all. 

6. Who or what inspires you to strive for more in the sport?
What inspires me is myself wanting more out of life and bodybuilding. I challenge myself day in and night out wanting to learn and achieve more in bodybuilding and in life. 

7. What is next for you as a competitor?
Next on my list is the NPC Master's Nationals in Pittsburgh in June 2015 with the hopes of cracking the top 5.. if not there, then it's on to the NPC USA Championships in late July in Las Vegas, Nevada.

8. What is your favorite memory good or bad while prepping or competing?
My favorite memory I will cherish will be the most recent 2014 Seven Feathers Championship taking both the Master's and Open Men's Overall Titles in Bodybuilding. Emotional setting for me, it was so surreal. You can see by the middle black and white photo below. I fell to my knees as they announced my name as the Open Overall winner.

10. Anything you would like to say to all the visitors to NPC Oregon?

"Every Day Is Training Day" like IFBB Pro Neal Blassingame Jr says. Lol.
