You can get the first 6 pages of his ebook for free. Learn how to eat, train and to get in the best shape of your life! But now let’s continue with this article (=
His favorite one was basketball, where he tried to become pro. In his 10-year basketball career he won many championships and at age of 16, he became a team member of Bulgarian national junior team, after that he played as semi-pro for National Basketball Association of Bulgaria.
Basketball is maybe the reason, why is he working out harder, than most of his competition. Because he is only 5’11” (180 centimeters) he had to work harder than his enemies and even his teammates.
His basketball career was interrupted by the Army, he spent there 9 months. After that, he played for more 3 years in the first and second division in Bulgaria, but he had to stop due to his chronic knee injury limited his performance and with his height deficit, performance was all he got.
Lazar Angelov & Bodybuilding
After pro basketball ended for him, it was time to move on. Lazar was in shape because for his whole basketball career he was working out in a gym too, to be able to keep up with his competition, since his stats 180 pounds (81,5 kg) and 180 cm (5’11”) are not exactly basketball stats. So he already had a decent body than.
His career ended in 2005, so he figured out, since he is already in good shape and working out is a big part of his life, he might try bodybuilding. And exactly one year later in 06, he tried his first bodybuilding competition. It was National Championship in Bulgaria and he entered Classic Bodybuilding division when he finished in third place.
Here are some transformation pics:
For most of you, this must be shocking, but believe or not Lazar Angelov doesn’t have a specific workout schedule. He claims to train often and heavy and day off just aren’t his favorite thing. That is why he only rest one to five days per month. The most important part of his training plan is compound movements at which he goes very heavy.
His concept is that he would be rather overtraining, than undertrain, like most people… Because there is to many people nowadays saying, that you need to put more attention to recovery, but if you look at pro athletes, you will quickly find out, that most probably you’re nowhere near to being overtrained.

His training starts with Pecs and Abdominals, following day he starts with back, then trap workout and ends with training forearms. On the third day, he hits heavy shoulders and does abdominals again. A day after that he hits for first-time triceps and biceps and forearms again. Last training day is legs, calves, and abdominals again.
You might think, that it doesn’t make any sense, why to train abs three times a week, forearms twice and the rest only once. Well,
Lazar Angelov’s Workout tip
Lift heavy and hard, but always maintain good form while exercising and involving isolation exercises at the end of the workout is must do, if you want to improve that body part.
His Diet to stay ripped 24/7
He stated in several interviews, that he has a very fast metabolism, but despite that, he maintains a strict diet, to look shredded year round. He stays consistent with his diet all year long. He has five to 7 meals a day, well in one interview he stated, that he eats 3 big meals a day and two to four snacks a day. The main thing for him is to eat very often, something like every hour up to three-hour interval and ingest at least 35 grams of protein in each meal and he hits maintain calories or slightly deficit to look photoshoot ready every day.

He is a great example, that diet is the most important thing in bodybuilding. on the 12th of September 2015 he had several knee surgeries and in following months, he had surgery on his left elbow.
Since September 2015 it is 6 months and he is still in shape, he couldn’t workout for 6 months straight, but he still has visible abs and separation in most of his muscle groups. If he was on lots of drugs like many haters comment all the time, he would be a lot smaller and got fat. But no, he is in good shape, of course, he is not photoshoot chilled with 4-5% body fat but looks great and it is all because of hard dieting.
His Cardio Routine
We already mentioned that he has a very fast metabolism. So it doesn’t make sense for him to do a bunch of cardio and burn of muscle, for which he worked extremely hard and for so many years. So why does he do it? Cardio is great for your heart and longevity.
This Bulgarian beast does ten to twenty-five minutes a day of cardio, but high-intensity interval training stile aka HIIT cardio, which keeps him healthy & looking athletically.
He admits to taking a lot of supplements. His believes are, that if you’re a natural athlete like him, that you should use every advantage you can, to reach your genetic potential. His favorite products are Whey protein or whey isolate. Of course, he uses bcaas and glutamine through the day. Then he also takes Fish Oil, when he is on low or no carbs, it helps him to stay at decent hormone levels to keep size and strength during those low or no carb days. And another favorite is pre and Intra workout, then creatine and glucosamine.

Is Lazar Natural?
As I mentioned in the paragraph above this, he talks about himself as a natural athlete. My opinion is, that he is natural since he has been training for more than 20 years. Keep in mind, he stated, that he was already lifting at age of 10-11- Most people don’t believe that, even if they say, that he might not be on HGH or testosterone, they can’t believe he can stay this lean without any drugs like tren, clenbuterol or others. But in my opinion, that is just a strict diet and he is also an ectomorph, because he himself admits, that his metabolism is very fast.
But let’s calculate his Fat-Free Mass Index aka FFMI, which 25 is usually the natural limit, but even before steroids were produced, there were Mr. Olympia competitors with FFMI over 28.
Lazar weights 195 pounds, his height is 5’11” ass I already mentioned few times, in facebook and ig comments, you see people commenting about his 3-4% body fat, but to be honest, he is in great shape, but I don’t believe he has shredded glutes, lets say he has 5% bf.
For those stats would FFMI 25.91, so I will let you decide what you believe if he is natty or not.
Is he the ultimate online fitness icon?
Lazar Angelov is probably the biggest name in the fitness industry. He has over 12 million followers on Facebook, over 550 thousand subscribers on youtube and more than 46 million views in total. And that is not everything, he has one of the biggest fitness Instagram accounts, tell me who in fitness niche has 3,3 million followers? Only lacking social media is Twitter, where he has “only” 111 thousand followers.
This is video is what got him popular
For most of you, this Bulgarian beast is your favorite fitness icon or your motivation. But, who are his idols or sources of inspiration? In a few articles he mentioned, that for motivation he follows Ulisess Jr, in his eyes, he has the most esthetic pleasing physique and that he would like to build a similar frame to his physique. From bodybuilders, he likes Shawn Ray, Kevin Levrone, Flex Wheeler and Arnold and he follows them all on Twitter. All those four legends, where more on the aesthetic side of bodybuilding instead of being mass monsters, which is exactly Lazar Angelov’s goal.
But fitness/bodybuilding was his second love, he loves basketball and from his twitter, you can see that he follows: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and of course the man, the myth, the legend Shaq.

How can he workout so hard, what’s the secret?
He stated, that the main reason, why he can workout so hard is honest music. That he loves music in general and listens to radio everywhere. But he has several hardcore soundtracks for the gym in all of them is included combination of those artists: Rick Ross, Bugatti boyz, Breaking Benjamin, Paul Wall, Nas, Godsmack, Rammstein, and Tupac.
His all-time favorite song is MMG Untouchable from Ricky Ross.

Is he a sellout or scammer?
The last paragraph is dedicated to haters. As always, if he is not on drugs, he is sellout or scam artist, it is always anything. You can’t leave him alone and say: “Good job, I love your physique. If you compare Lazar Angelov to other fitness celebrities, he is definitely a sellout, yes he uses and promotes supplements. But he is internet celebrity for past ten or eleven years and he has been only with two companies.
This is old picture, where he promotes nutri-sups and their fat burner alburtrex:
And now he is with shreds, there was a picture somewhere in this article with their supplements. So what? He uses supplements and promotes them. He still uses and recommends the same things as he did before, now it is just with a different company, I really don’t see a problem with it.
And if you say he is a sellout because of promoting protein bites:
Yeah sure, I get it, he could post lest selfies with them and I know it is overpriced. But did you ever taste them? They are great and the macros are insane! You can eat chips, watch your favorite movie and still get in the best shape of your life, that is just amazing!
