Heart Attack Victim to Body Builder – Richard Chartrand

Richard Chartrand
At 48 years-old and following Cardiac Surgery, Richard decided to optimise his physique for a body building competition.

This episode is a little bit of an experiment. My guest is Richard Chartrand. Richard is not a trainer and he does not own a big health and fitness business. He is a student of HIT and has been a HIT proponent for 35 years. Richard was featured in Holiday Thanks, a popular article written by Dr Doug McGuff in 2009, which explains how Richard may have single-handedly revitalised the HIT movement with his amazing physical transformation following cardiac surgery. Richard documented his transformation on drdarden.com under My Progress after Cardiac Surgery.

Some of you have been asking for an interview with a trainee for some time. Richard shares what he has learnt in his pursuit of optimal health and fitness, and I think many of you will find this very interesting and useful.

In this episode we cover:

  • Richard’s story of his inspiring training journey and the severe health scares which inspired him to pursue a short career in body building.
  • How Richard’s training protocol has evolved over time.
  • How he wants to prove John Little wrong 😉
  • and much more
