How CT Fletcher Built 22 Inch Arms

How CT Fletcher Built 22 Inch Arms

If there’s one thing CT Fletcher is well known and popular for (besides his internet ramblings and excessive language), it’s his monster Hulk-like arms.

How exactly does a human being who does no drugs what so ever become so jacked and build arms like that?

The workout is relatively simple, but it takes a lot of dedication. It’s called Armed Warfare around the area he’s in, and the warm up has a lot of steps but it’s highly effective.

Additional Tips And Helpful Pointers From CT Fletcher

Triceps Cable Pull-Down & Biceps Cable Curl

This should be your beginner workout and used to pump up your arms and start feeling a little burn.

These repetitions should be busted out relatively quickly to get a good pre-workout pump going and the weights should gradually increase from the person helping you.

The reason you have a buddy or friend pick your weight for you is that CT Fletcher believes that people go too easy on themselves.

However, when a friend is picking the weights for you, they’re far more likely to push your limits and to give you a better workout.

The 3 Position Chin Up

When you perform a chin up, the optimal way to do this exercise is in three different various positions.

First, you’ll want to use a very wide grip, then a normal grip and a close grip.

Also, remember to make sure your palms are facing towards you because you want the maximum amount of effort being focused on your biceps.

After you’ve done only 30 repetitions (10 reps in each position), you’ll be regretting having arms but you’ll love that after burn.

Under-Bar Triceps Extension

If you make and push yourself to this portion of the armed warfare exercise, then CT Fletcher personally promises that this exercise will drop you and make you quit.

The exercise is simple: Take a steadily fixed barbell, lean off of the barbell and make sure your head goes under it to get the full effect of the workout. If you want that extra weight and challenge, try to narrow your grip instead of using a wide grip.

You may not achieve 22-inch arms or you may achieve even larger arms, but this is one kick ass pump up arm work out that you’ll want to give a shot if you want to feel the burn.

 

CT Fletcher Steroid Accusations

CT Fletcher Steroid Accusations

Steroid Accusations

Whether you’ve seen it on Reddit or other favorite social media outlets, people everywhere have accused CT Fletcher time and time again of being on steroids.

Steroid Accusations
Image from BodyBuilders

I’ve seen all kinds of marketing accusations ranging from the following:

Random Internet Quotes (Mostly from Reddit/Body Building/Misc)

There’s no way he’s not on steroids. No one can naturally achieve results like that.”

The human body can’t process muscles like that without some illegal substance help.”

CT Fletcher is just an internet rambler who wants attention. I’d love to see what kind of steroids he’s taking.”

Why do so many people think just because a person is big, they’re on steroids? What ever happened to people working hard for their goals and achieving results at the hands of dedication and hard work?

Everyone’s looking for the easy way out, and no one wants to work towards something and earn something.

So, the question today we’re here to answer is, is it physically possible for CT Fletcher not to be on steroids?

Steroid Accusations
Image from BodyBuilders

The answer is absolutely, and you’re devoted enough to find out if he’s a liar, then find him and drug test him.

He has openly said numerous times that he was drug tested throughout his powerlifting career, and he’s more than willing to submit to a drug test.

So why is it that when so many people see people like CT Fletcher or other abnormally fit humans, they automatically assume that they’re abusing drugs or steroids?

You’ve Been Fooled By The Media & Hollywood

When you watch any movie or TV show, they’re beautiful people everywhere.

No one wants to watch ugly people run around half naked for an hour and a half chasing a group of bad guys, and no one intends to watch a romantic comedy about ugly people.

The guys in a lot of these shows and movies are physically fit. What is the first thing the tabloids go to when they try to guess how they did it?

Well, apparently, this actor got fit off steroids. Even the media knows that infomercial products are BS and never gives them credit, so instead of attributing their body to hard work and dedication, it makes for a more attention-grabbing headline to say they’re abusing steroids.

People continue to watch and believe these allegations are making them think that everyone who’s physically fit is insulting something illegal.

Marketing Companies have fooled you.

If there’s one thing that steroid companies are great at doing, it’s marketing. To be honest, the only products out there on the market that are legal, only give you an energy boost.

Even most of those never work for most people; they just make you more alert and a bit more focused on what you’re doing, but with a lot of those products come that crash that leaves you drowsy.

Marketing companies spend all day and hire six-figure salary executives to know how to sell you more crap and to make you believe what they’re saying.

Steroid Accusations
Image from BodyBuilders

Yes, they’re lying, but they’re also paying an abnormal amount of taxes from sales so no one cares that they’re lying.

Whether it’s because of marketing tactics, the media or people just trying to bring others down, not as many people abuse steroids as you think.

  • He used to be just as unmotivated as most of the youth walking around today and feasted on McDonalds for every single meal.

CT Fletcher vs. Powerlifter

CT Fletcher vs. Powerlifter

Powerlifter

With everything and person that is popular, there’s bound to be people out there that want to start trouble and people who will hate you just because of your success.

There are no exceptions to this rule, EVERYTHING that becomes popular gains enemies just because of the fact it’s popular.

Not long ago, CT Fletcher found himself on the receiving end of this.

Now, while CT Fletcher has had many anonymous enemies of discussion boards, bodybuilding videos and body building forums, this one was a very particular case.

Powerlifter
Image from BodyBuilders

The individual who started the video won’t be named but he was a widely popular power lifter who decided to call out CT Fletcher and basically tell him that everything he spouts off is a lie.

Was he looking for attention? Did he just want more people to come to his channel to rack up the views? Or maybe, is it just the way of life on the internet?

Right after CT Fletcher saw this video, he immediately created a response, with badass style.

CT Fletcher’s Response To The Power Lifter

He starts off with a video acknowledging that he’s seen the video and that he was asked not to respond to it.

While he didn’t exactly take that advice well, he did play it off smartly because he refused to name off the person who had made the video in the first place.

If this guy’s plan was to rack up more views and subscribers by targeting CT Fletcher, well he made a mistake, because that didn’t exactly work. That’s how most rivalry’s work.

When one person finds they have an enemy, they share banter back and forth on the internet and keep naming each other off.

Both sides gain the same amount of attention and fans backing them up. With CT Fletcher keeping his name in the dark, that kind of leaves him at the minority.

CT Fletcher’s Motivation – “Just do what you can do

He makes videos just to inspire minds, get people off of the couch and achieve fitness results.

He never asks for anything in return.

Do you know how hard it is (especially today) to find someone on the internet willing to give advice away that wasn’t trying to sell you some over hyped product or some marketing BS jargon?

The Power Lifter YouTube Channel Gets Deleted

It wasn’t long after making that video, that CT Fletcher’s internet audience quickly started flagging that video and every other single video on that account.

Not long after, the entire YouTube account that started uploading those videos was removed.

The entire YouTube account that started uploading those videos was removed.

Why is that?

  • It could have been because he was promoting the use of steroids
  • It could have been his foul language (he was way worse than CT Fletcher)
  • Have been how racist/homophobic he appeared to have been in some of his videos

This is the same power lifter who appeared as the roid rager on the popular Comedy Central television show, Tosh.0.

At the end of the day, CT Fletcher handled the drama like a boss, ignored his request for attention, addressed him for the punk that he was and he became internet history with no trace of him and nothing to show for his rant.

He feels that he has accomplished everything in his life that he thought humanly possible and had no desire to go up in competition again.

CT Fletcher’s Stats

If the mere sight of an image of CT Fletcher isn’t impressive enough, then listen to these stats. The mere thought of lifting 705lbs is a scary one, and anyone that can do that is not a force to be trifled with.

Bench Press (Gym): 705lb
Bench Press (Competition): 650lb
Squat: 725lb
Muscle: Infinite

CT Fletcher has coined a workout that he likes to refer to as the penitentiary workout.

One of the most interesting things about this workout is that it doesn’t follow the standard norm that most professionals use. Most professionals go with a certain number of sets and a certain number of repetitions to perform each exercise.

CT Fletcher’s Workouts

The workout consists of a couple of different parts. First and foremost, he uses a power lifter.

What these do is help increase the strength of the lifter and allows you to focus on lifting more. Some of the basic workouts that he likes to focus on are as follows:

Arms

For these exercises, it’s recommended to be complete five sets of 10 reps at a minimum, for every single exercise.

Single arm dumbbell preacher curls
EZ bar preacher curls
Incline bench hammer curls
Concentration curls
Cable curls

While CT Fletchers is known quite extensively focusing on his arms and biceps, he does like some other exercises as well that he’s shared.

For the shoulders, he prefers to start out with the seated dumbbell overhead press to warm up.

After some repetitions and sets, he’ll move on to the standing barbell lateral raise and finally finish up with the seated Smith overheard press.

For the chest, CT recommends starting out with the flat barbell bench and moving on directly to the flat dumbbell bench.

Then, you’ll move on to the flat barbell pyramid bench, move on to the smith bench, move on to the incline barbell bench and finally finish off with some good old fashioned pushups.

Biceps

One of the most noticeable features of CT Fletchers is by far the biceps and it’s also one of his most extensive workouts. The bicep workouts will basically come into 6 different parts.

1 – Start out with the incline bench hammer curls
2 – You’ll then move onto dumbbell preacher curls
3 – Then, move onto EZ curl bar preacher curls
4 – Barbell preacher curls
5 – Straight bar cable curls
6 – Finally, you’ll want to finish off with some concentration curls

You may need to mix and match to find which exercises and sets work best for you.

Some of these shots may include: “I command you to grow!” “Next stop, Mount Biceps!” and other unofficial quotes he’s coined over the years.

There’s a damn good reason behind this, though because he’s not just a bodybuilder, he’s a 50-year-old bodybuilder with six world champions under his belt.

Currently, he’s a personal trainer at the Metroflex Gym in Long Beach, California.

What’s The Significance of Music during a Workout?

Music is one of those things that helps get you motivated and helps get you pumped up during a workout.

Not only that, but music has been shown to greatly help productivity in whatever it is that you do and not just lifting.

Music can move you and it can affect your emotions as well. Some people like to listen to slow rock songs when they’re sad to be reminded of an ex and some people like to listen to fast paced metal music when they’re lifting to help them pump the iron.

CT Fletcher was recently interviewed about playing music during his workouts and what kind of music he listens to that make his workouts a bit more productive.

His answers aren’t particularly surprising, but they should give you some ideas of what kind of music you should be playing if you want to exhibit a fraction of the intensity and ferocity that CT Fletcher has.

When asked about what role music plays during CT’s workouts:
Unsurprisingly, he stated that he doesn’t focus on music mainly but he’s focusing on the workout.

He was highly motivated and devoted to getting the best workout possible in the time span that he’s lifting and doesn’t tend to notice the music around him.

In his own words, it’s like a ‘huge, full-out-war’ instead of his head going on and not because of the tunes playing the background.

However, when he does listen to music, he stated that he does enjoy listening to some James Brown, because unlike the younger crowd that listens to metal and heavy music, he likes to keep it classic.

It’s not often that he wants to turn music on, but when he does, he’ll blast some Al Green, James Brown or Aretha Franklin to help get the blood moving and keep the intensity going.

When asked about if he had to choose just one album to listen to for the remainder of his life.

Obviously, he was going to answer James Brown. I’m pretty sure CT Fletcher has mentioned James Brown in any music-related interview that he got a chance to, but his exact response was: “James find brown”.

It should be no surprise to many that since he’s 50+ years old, he grew up listening to things like James Brown and other classical tunes.

One of CT Fletcher’s greatest inspirations for what he does would be Sonny Liston.

He knew that Sonny Liston liked to listen to James Brown whenever he was training and that alone gets CT’s blood pumped up to the classical hits.

He wanted to be just like Sonny Liston and that meant listening to the same music he trained to.

He did state though that he can listen to just about anything, especially anything from the James Brown decade.

His main inspiration for being the best would be Muhammad Ali.

When he was growing up, he was just another poor kid from a poor family in the mean streets of Compton.

You had to be tough to survive those streets and CT gets a lot of respect from that fact.

One of the main things people remember about Muhammad is how adamant he was about sticking to what he believed in, which Fletcher says gives him a huge inspirational boost every time he lifts.

CT Fletcher Cardio

One thing that a lot of powerlifters and bodybuilders tend to cut out or slack on is their cardio. Is cardio necessary?

Well, it’s a healthy decision to make because it’ll improve your heart and your lungs by a substantial amount but is it necessary for body building?

Image from BodyBuilders
Image from BodyBuilders

Isn’t Cardio Great For Fat Loss Through?

Well, yes it is, but it’s not the best tool for combating fat loss. If you have an excess amount of fat that you’d like to lose, then you don’t need to focus on cardio so much as you need to focus on your diet.

If you spend all this time doing cardio exercises to lose weight but then stuff your face with the highest amount of calorie consumption food you can find, you’re just reversing the process.

Cardio is better for your interior health such as your heart and your lungs. You’ll live longer off cardio, and that’s not to say that people haven’t lost weight doing anything but cardio.

A lot of bicyclists who travel long distances are skinny. That’s because they mostly drink water, they cut out of all the sugars and disgusting crap that’s in cola products and a lot of them eat healthy diets.

CT Fletcher’s Cardio Routine

  1. Boxing/Martial Arts – Whether it’s hitting the heavy bags or street bags, CT Fletcher used to be into boxing before he got into body building.

He says he likes to regularly train in boxing when not bodybuilding because it’s something he loves to do and he believes that boxing is one of the best forms of cardio.

He’s also stated that he enjoys cardio because if one of the “young muthafuckas” mistakes him for some old has been who can’t throw down, he’d love to show them wrong.

  1. Wind Sprints – This isn’t something he does as often as boxing, but wind sprints are a highly effective way of building up your lung capacity and doing cardio in an effective amount of time.

Not a lot of people like to run long distance jogs or do those 5k marathons, so that’s why there are wind sprints.

These sprints were designed to go as quick as you can over a short distance, to rest a little and to do it again. Short bursts for running are highly efficient and can save you a lot of time over a 3-hour jog.

Is Cardio Even Worth The Effort And Hassle?

It depends on what you’re trying to do and how much time you have available to train.

If you do absolutely no cardio what so ever, then you can be a rock solid tank but be completely out of shape.

If you’re just trying to bulk up, and you really could care less about your lungs/heart, then ignore cardio completely. It’s always a good idea to do some form of cardio though for your personal health.

CT Fletcher doesn’t focus mostly on cardio, but even he realizes the importance of doing it every once in a while.

One for personal health and one for knocking people out if he needs to.
