Paul Dillett - one of these bodybuilders, about him and will be discussed in this article.
Biography of the athlete
This colossus of bodybuilding was born on April 12, 1965year in Montreal (Canada), in a large family. From a young age Paul Dillet (photo presented in the article) felt an irresistible craving for sport. But his first passion was football, in which he achieved fairly good results. In his student years the bodybuilder played for the national team of his university, and after receiving the diploma he got into the professional league and played for the football team "Toronto" for several seasons. To keep fit, Paul Dillet started attending the gym, where he gained an impressive mass in a relatively short time. Then it was the idea to try myself as a professional bodybuilder.
The debut performance in which Paul triedhimself already in the role of a bodybuilder, took place at the amateur championship of North America in 1991. Despite the excellent physical data, Paul Dillet could not win the prize, losing to Ray McNeil. But the sportsman did not despair and with even greater zeal continued his training. And it gave its results, after all the next year his performance made a real sensation. As stated by one of the judges, the bodybuilder for the victory would be enough to crawl on the stage on all fours.
The rise of popularity
After the conclusion of the contract with Joe Wyder PaulDillet, whose height and weight were impressive, went to conquer the professional podium. The rise of the bodybuilder was impetuous. He literally threw all sorts of invitations to popular shows, because the bodybuilder knew how to "light the public". However, the ascetic way of life and the strictest regime by which the athlete struggled with excess fat, did not give Paul the expected popularity.
For the whole history of performances the athlete failedto get the highest title of bodybuilding - Mr. Olympia, which did not stop him from becoming one of the most highly paid bodybuilders in the world. The most impressive achievement of Paul can be called a prize in the competition "Night of Champions", held in 1999. But even then the victory over the main favorite Marcus Ruhl did not bring the athlete complete satisfaction. Many fans and members of the IFBB challenged the primacy of Paul, and then he promised that he would make his next victory undeniable.
A series of failures
But the athlete was not destined to conquer the sportsOlympus once again. Despite the excellent shape of Paul Dillet, the height, weight, and biceps of which were really impressive, could not win prizes at the next competition. Repeated performance on "Nights of Champions" brought only the 3rd place and became the starting point for new misfortunes.
Love of bodybuilding is forever
Realizing that he will not be able to reach new heights in sports,Paul Dillet does not lower his hands. And already in 2007 he founded his bodybuilding federation - The World Bodybuilding And Fitness Federation (WBFF).

But the bodybuilder immediately denied them, saying that the IFBB is an unrivaled organization with which he did not even think about joining the confrontation.
Unusual methods of training
Bodybuilder Paul Dillett is famous for hisnon-standard approach to training. He was tested and hypnosis, and the connection of electrical wires to the trained muscles. But the most outstanding in the sports environment is the method using the state of affect. This method of power development was based on an interesting theory that the human body is able to show unprecedented endurance and dexterity in a stressful situation. That is, in order to increase the figures, it is necessary to train at the moment when adrenaline goes off scale. And the most interesting thing is how the athlete embodied his theory: in place of the gym, Paul Dillet went to the nearest forest.
