For Men's Underwear Model Corey Kirk, a Day at the Beach is a Chance to Model


PHOTOS BY DAMON STRONG

Last year, modelJOCK.com published photos of Jockstrap Central male model Corey Kirk, and the post was an instant hit. So it's a pleasure this year to feature this Toronto-based model yet again, in a series of photos by talented lensman Damon Strong.

Corey's classic good looks, muscular body and natural talent in front of the camera give him the ability to make just about any pair of swimwear or underwear look great. 

I (Mark Edward, publisher of modelJOCK.com) visit Western New York State several times a year, and Corey is just a few miles (or kilometers) away, on the other side of the border — and one thing is for sure: he's on my wish list for doing a full shoot and video interview. Keep your fingers crossed that once the weather is warm again in that part of the world, we'll be doing a shoot!


Corey's Stats
AGE: 23
HEIGHT: 5'11"
WEIGHT: 180 lbs.
WAIST: 31
CHEST: 45"
WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY? Northern Ontario, Canada
WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW? Toronto, Canada

VIDEO: Travis — Male Model Tips for Abs, Chest and Biceps



PHOTOS AND VIDEO BY MARK EDWARD STUDIO

Muscular, 20-year-old male model Travis Dinan attracted a lot of attention with the first group of photos and video — Natural Muscle, Ripped Abs and a Winning Attitude — that I published here on modelJOCK.com a few weeks back. 

Now this hot male model with the winning smile is back again, with my second VIDEO and photo set, as he shares his own personal workout tips for abs, pecs and biceps. One look at his own ripped six-pack, impressive chest and bulging biceps are proof that we should pay attention to what he's saying. Stay tuned for more from this rising male fitness model.

INTERVIEW: Pro Wrestler and Male Model John Quinlan, on Fame, Muscle and Whether Wrestlers are Sex Symbols


John Joseph Quinlan is a man of accomplishment. A bodybuilder, professional wrestler, male fitness model and art model, he has appeared in a variety of media, including magazines and television. His muscular physique and strong presence are well known to anyone in the fields of wrestling, bodybuilding and male fitness modeling.

I had the honor of doing an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with this famed male model, and got the inside scoop on what's helped him stay in shape and stay on top for so many years.


John's Stats
AGE: 36

HEIGHT: 5'11

WEIGHT: 210 lbs.

SHOE: 10

WAIST: 32

CHEST: 48"
BICEPS: 19"
LEGS: 28" 

WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Boston, Massachusetts

WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY? Winchester, Massachusetts

 
At what age did you start your fitness/workout program, and why did you start?
I started working out in February of 1988 at age 13 to get stronger for sports.



What do you feel is your best physical attribute? Any body parts you focus on the most in terms of improvement?
In the fitness world, people have said my best physical attribute has been my biceps. They were the first thing to really develop before anything else. I remember kids calling me "Popeye" back then because when I was 16 the only muscle group that really was advanced was my bicep size. So I was kind of the reverse of Popeye back then, big biceps with little forearms, with Mr. Spinach having huge forearms and little biceps; funny when I look back on it.
In the modeling world, many have said I have one of the best jaw lines they have ever seen. I am truly humbled by anybody taking time out of their busy schedule to give me some kind words. I thank each and every one of you for that, and you all know who you are!



What is your workout/exercise routine like?
It really depends what I am training for; if I an training for a contest or show or just taking some time off. I switch my routines up quite a bit so everything is always fresh. When training I might do a standard workout routine for one week, such as chest/triceps on day 1, back/biceps on day 2, Legs on day 3, day 4 might be some fine tuning with training my neck, abs and calves.
I have performed general circuit training as well, very similar to a boxer, where I will work all the body parts light to moderate during the entire workout and throw in some solid cardio after for added calorie burning. That is the basis of my training, I just adjust the amount of cardio, rep range and weight level depending on what I am going for. Getting ready for a contest or show, my cardio is increased as I get closer and closer to my target date with my rep range moderate to high with a moderate weight range. I always try to keep my form as good as I can to prevent injuries and isolate each muscle group.  




How about your diet — what do you eat and what do you avoid?
My diet is good year round. The foundation of my diet ALWAYS stays the same. The only difference from when I am "off" and when I am training for a contest or show is the things I add or cut out.
My diet on average (not training for a contest or show) consists mainly of oatmeal, potatoes. rice, wheat bread and pasta for my complex carbs. My protein comes from chicken, fish, steak and all natural whey protein powder. I eat plenty of dark green leafy vegetables (mostly spinach) and consume plenty of water.
When I am "off" I will add in things like low fat ice cream and yogurt not to mention cheat foods like pizza, french fries and cake when I feel I have earned it.
When training begins for a contest or show the foundation of my diet stays the same; I just eliminate certain things for the total duration of the diet. Generally, I no longer consume any dairy products, pasta or bread. I will cycle my carbs down as I get closer to show time and increase my water intake to a gallon and a half per day. I cut out steak as well for the most part but I will consume it only if I feel my body needs it. During this time I eat plenty of green vegetables, chicken, fish and all natural whey protein to keep the muscles nourished during this time when my diet is very strict.



How and when did you start modeling? 
I have modeled for years. It began in the gyms in the 90's when photographers and artists would come in looking for guys to use for photographs and projects. These photographers liked me and used me and I enjoyed it since I was training anyway so I looked at it as an added bonus that also motivated me to go further.
I am still enjoying the model world today, over a decade later. 


What has been your proudest or most exciting moment so far in terms of modeling?
Man, so many proud and exciting moments in terms of my modeling that I really couldn't say just one. I guess if I had to mention one proud moment off the top of my head here, I should mention something more recent. I was named male fashion model of the month for January 2011 by HUF Magazine. With all the talented and amazing male models in the world today, HUF chose me as one of their male fashion models of the month. I was truly honored!     



How and when did you get involved with wrestling? 
I got involved in professional wrestling back in 1999. For a year or so prior to that so many people kept telling me I had a strong resemblance to another wrestler named Buff Bagwell. My image has changed over the years as I now sport a clean shave and buzz cut but back then with hair and a goatee I can see now what all those people were talking about. I didn't live far from Killer Kowalski's Pro Wrestling School so finally, after so many encouraged me to check it out, I did. I was privileged to become great friends with the pro wrestling legend himself, Walter "Killer" Kowalski.
Now that Walter has passed away, I am so proud to have had the honor of being his friend.



How does the field of wrestling compare to modeling?
I can compare professional wrestling and modeling in the sense that one has to look their best in both. To be truly successful in both the world of wrestling and modeling, one has to have a great stage presence and the total package, as they say. Many have great attributes but not all have the total package to be truly elite in either field. I am honored just to be part of it since it is so challenging and so demanding.     



Models sometimes become "sex symbols" as they gain attention and fame. Do you think that wrestlers also have a certain "sex appeal" that attracts viewers, or is it purely the sport itself?
Professional wrestlers most definitely have "sex appeal." I really feel professional wrestlers DO NOT get the credit they so very much deserve. The majority of today's professional wrestlers keep themselves in great physical condition, some with physiques like those of the ancient Greek Gods that were carved of stone. They are the most self-confident showmen on Earth and nothing has more "sex appeal" than self-confidence. They never have an off season to take a break like other sports performers; a professional wrestler has to be in tip-top physical condition year round, and that is almost impossible to comprehend. So with all of this being said, "sex appeal" in professional wrestling most definitely attracts viewers just like "sex appeal" is the staple for viewers in the modeling world.

VIDEO: David — Modeling Men's Underwear and Sportswear in the Park




PHOTOS AND VIDEO BY MARK EDWARD STUDIO

A few months ago, modelJOCK.com did a Q&A interview with muscular Chicago-based male model David Davila. Readers loved his portfolio, his hunky style and interesting insight into the world of male fitness modeling. So I was thrilled when, during a recent trip to Chicago, I was able to do a quick photo shoot and live VIDEO shoot and interview with this talented guy. 

In this first of two videos, David models men's underwear and sportswear in the park, while talking about his fast-rising career as a male fitness model (he started just this year!). Stay tuned for even more from David; he'll be modeling Speedos and a wrestling singlet in the next video.

INTERVIEW: Male Model Brom Rector Shares his Style and Workout Secrets


It's always great when male models share the secrets behind their look. So it's a pleasure that 20-year-old male model Brom Rector not only agreed to do this EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, but he also shared his day-by-day program. His photos (by the excellent photographer Gustavo Sardi) show the results of his dedication, and it's something we can all certainly learn from. 

Brom’s Stats
AGE: 20
HEIGHT: 6’1”
WEIGHT: 235 lbs
SHOE: 13
WAIST: 34
ARMS: 17.5”
WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Miami
WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY? Seattle, Washington


At what age did you start your fitness/workout program, and why did you start? 
I've been throwing weights around just for fun since I was about 16.  I didn't get serious about it until this May, when a friend of mine convinced me to compete in a men's physique show.



What do you think is your best physical attribute? Any body parts you focus on the most in terms of improvement?
I feel like I've been blessed with great facial aesthetics. Besides that, I have a great butt, legs and my back is really wide. I'm currently trying to add overall mass. My abs aren't the best, and my triceps pale in comparison to my biceps. But next spring I'll start cutting down for another contest.



What is your workout/exercise routine?
Currently I'm doing a variation of Dorian Yates' High Intensity Training, which requires only one set per exercise. The challenge is to do that exercise to complete and total muscle failure. The split is set up like this:

Monday: Chest
Tuesday: Legs
Wednesday: Rest/cardio
Thursday: Back
Friday: Arms and shoulders
Weekend: Off


When I get into pre-contest mode, I switch to a volume based approach and lift five to six days a week. 


How about your diet — what do you eat and what do you avoid?
I eat the standard bodybuilder foods. Since I'm trying to gain weight right now, I have about one "free" meal a week where I eat whatever I want (usually some nice Indian or Thai food), but the rest of the time I just eat a lot of meat, eggs, oats, rice and potatoes. I never eat fast food. Even if trying to get big, overall health shouldn't be sacrificed. 


How and when did you start modeling? What has been your proudest or most exciting moment so far?
I started this spring, when a friend of mine who also does modeling recommended that I give it a shot. He hooked me up with some photographers and here I am! I don't have any one specific moment that I can recall, but I love the energy rush I feel each time I step in front of the camera! The only thing better is stepping on stage at a bodybuilding show!



Besides working out, do you play any sports?
I used to do some fighting. Currently I only have time to lift. 


Besides modeling and working out, what else do you do? What are your long-term professional goals?
I'll be graduating with a B.S. in economics in the spring of 2012, I hope to be an entrepreneur. My love for making music will always be part of my life.


What is the best way for people to follow your work?
Thank you modelJOCK for this acknowledgement and feature opportunity. The work you do to promote new male model talent is awesome. Lastly, I have to credit the photos for this feature, photographed by the immensely talented Gustavo Sardi of Boynton Beach, Florida (http://www.modelmayhem.com/2274462).
