Physique Bodyware Athlete Dominick Mutascio to Compete in NPC USA Championships


NPC USA Championships_Dominick Mutascio

Physique Bodyware would like to wish good luck to one of our hardest working athletes, NPC Competitor, Dominick Mutascio, in his upcoming show, the NPC USA Championships!!

A New York native, Dominick Mutascio, has spent the past five years making a name for himself in the bodybuilding world as an extreme fitness and nutrition guru and fierce NPC competitor. Competing as a middleweight bodybuilder in such shows as, the Junior Nationals, Metropolitan, and Excalibur; Dominick has yet to place below second in any of his competitions. His motto of “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger” is apparent in his training methods and stage presentation.

Most recently, Dominick took first place at the NPC North Eastern Summer Classic in Westchester, NY. Currently, he is only one week out from the NPC USA Championships, in Las Vegas, NV where he is set to take the stage once more, in his quest for his IFBB Pro Card.

We asked Dominick, what’s your favorite piece of Physique Bodyware clothing??

Dominick replied, “I love all of their stuff, but I would have to say one of favorite pieces is definitely the Y-Back Stringer tank. It’s got a classic bodybuilding look that really showcases my physique in a way that not many other tanks like this can. Plus the material is really nice and they’ve got a ton of cool colors. Their Workout Shorts are also awesome; they make my legs look really defined. It’s hard for me to find a pair of fitted shorts that are actually comfortable enough for me to train in.”

Meet Dominick and grab some Physique Bodyware gear tomorrow afternoon at RXMuscle’s Bros Vs Pros 24 event at Extreme Fitness Xtreme in Shirley, NY.

5 ESSENTIAL LEG DAY WORKOUTS

In bodybuilding, possessing hard, muscular legs will quickly draw the eye of any judge, but as any hardcore competitor will tell you, building great legs takes time, endurance and proper technique.

Whether you’re getting ready to step on stage or just want to increase your strength, these five lower body workouts will have your legs looking bigger and more defined.

Always be ready for leg day with Physique Bodyware’s Men’s Workout Shorts and Men’s Workout Pants.

1.  Squats

A compound, full body exercise, squatting is a fan favorite. One of the most popular exercises, it’s known for building muscle, as well as toning secondary muscle groups such as abs, obliques and the lower back muscles.

2.  Hamstring Curls

The hamstring curl (or lying leg curl) allows for isolation of the hamstring muscle, delivering a very concentrated contraction. Focus on your muscle’s contraction and get a good squeeze out of the hamstring.

3.  Dead Lifts

Dead lifting works more muscles than any other exercise. It will strengthen your entire back and it’s surrounding muscles, while being extremely effective for building core strength that supports all major muscle groups.

4.  Leg Extensions

Leg extensions target strengthen the quadriceps and key attachments for the knee joint. Improve your upper sweep and isolate your quads by pointing your toes out when you come up.

5.  Seated Calf Raises

When performing a seated calf raise, it is better to use less weight and higher reps, due to the fact that you are putting greater emphasis on the soleus, as opposed gastroc, which consists of more slow twitch muscle fibers.
