Born in Tennessee, Brandon Curry was always active and was encouraged to be as active as possible. He started lifting at a young age and would soon become enthralled with fitness and everything that came with it. By the time he got to college, he knew he wanted to be involved with this as a career and continued his education with a focus on health and fitness.

He started as a personal trainer and then transitioned into bodybuilding, first competing in 2003 and then turning pro in 2008. From there, Curry has had an amazing career, competing in show after show and placing first at top contests like the Arnold Classic Brazil, New Zealand Pro, Arnold Classic Australia, Arnold Classic, and the 2019 Mr. Olympia contest. In 2020 and 2021, he finished with an impressive second at Mr. Olympia as well.

Aside from his bodybuilding career, Curry is also a family man who is married with four children and he also runs a supplements company called Scitec Nutrition.

When it comes to training, Brandon hits the gym about five times per week and is always looking for the best way to put on muscle. It is important for him to change up his routine once in a while and this will involve weightlifting, HIIT, and full body circuits. While he does enjoy working legs and back, judging by his physique, every muscle gets plenty of work done.

Chest & Bicep Workout

While the sets and reps are not mentioned for this chest and biceps workout, these exercises are great to try and can certainly give you a serious pump.

Chest Exercises
  • Incline Smith Machine Press
  • High Incline Standard Grip Machine Press
  • High Incline Neutral Grip Machine Press
  • Flat Unilateral Plate Loaded Bench Press Machine
  • Standing Machine Decline Press
  • Chest Machine Press
  • Seated Cable Flyes Superset (Upper & Lower)
Bicep Exercises
  • Standing Cable Curls
  • Unilateral Motion Seat Cable Curls
  • Plate Loaded Iso-Lateral Curls
  • Plate Loaded One-Arm Machine Preacher Curls



Brandon is always fueling his body and typically eats upwards of 6-8 meals per day. These consist of whole foods and the right balance of macronutrients in order to see real gains and to stay healthy overall. Foods in his diet are things like lean meats, rice, oats, sweet potatoes, fruits, vegetables, and plenty of nuts. He does, of course, have cheat meals now and then.


While Brandon uses his own supplements of choice, there are some staple products in a bodybuilder’s routine to take note of that can serve you well. A protein powder is great for seeing gains and working to pump you with protein to aid in muscle growth, recovery, and even weight loss.

For those pre-workout needs, looking to pre-workout supplements will provide energy and muscle pumps so you can take full advantage of every workout. Of course, a shredded aesthetic is the end goal and looking to fat burners can kickstart your metabolism, suppress your appetite, and allow for more calorie burn to give you the best benefits possible.
