Introduction to Bodybuilding

Paul Dillett was born in Montreal (Canada) in 1965. The future bodybuilder grew up an active child and was fond of sports since childhood. Paul really enjoyed playing football. After studying, he managed to get into the big leagues and play a couple of seasons for the Toronto team. While playing football, Dillet went to the gym.

Paul Dillett - the famous Canadian bodybuilder

Carier start

In 1991, Paul Dillet went to the North American Championship. There he took second place, losing to Ray McNeil. For the next year Paul was only preparing for these competitions. He significantly increased in muscle volumes and managed to win. In an interview, Dillet noted that this victory was the most desired in his life.

Due to its large dimensions, the bodybuilder quickly became famous. Paul has not even received a pro-card, and Joe Vader's firm has already signed a contract with him. In addition to her exceptional physique, Dillett had charisma, thanks to which the athlete liked the audience very much.

Paul never took high places at competitions. During his career he won only three prestigious tournaments: Grand Prix of France, Germany (1994) and "Night of Champions" (1999). The favorite of that "Night" was Marcus Ruhl, so after the competition there was a lot of controversy about the fact that Paul's victory was very doubtful. Дилер promised to admirers, that next year will show even better form to confirm the champion title. But this did not happen. Paul repeatedly tried to conquer the "Olympia", but never entered even in the TOP-3. His maximum - the fourth place in 1994.

Perhaps, the bodybuilder simply was not lucky, because he was always a few steps away from victory. Or maybe the reason for Paul's failure lay in his specific training methods. At one of the tournaments "Arnold Classic" Dillet started strong convulsions. Paul was a favorite and, most likely, could have won. But the athlete finished his performance not on the podium, but on reception at the doctor.

Black line

After winning the "Nights of Champions", fate was not particularly pleased with Paul. He had health problems. Due to several losses in the competition sponsor broke his contract with him. In addition, Dillet divorced his wife, went bankrupt and got into a car accident. It is clear that the bodybuilder simply could not fully exercise in such conditions. To deal with all the problems, Dillet had to take a three-year break.

In 2006, the bodybuilder announced his return to competitive bodybuilding. Fans eagerly awaited the appearance of Paul on the podium and hoped for his successful performances. Dillett decided to start with the Toronto Pro tournament. But the bodybuilder was awarded only the tenth place. After that, the bodybuilder finished his career.

Paul Dillet Training

The hero of this article prepared for tournaments not according to standard schemes. Before him, so far, no bodybuilder trained. Dillett used hypnosis, connected to the muscles of the wires with tension, practiced occupations in a state of affect. The latter was used to increase the level of adrenaline, which helps the body to work in full force. Once a bodybuilder even experimented with the manifestation of primary ancient instincts. The experience took place in the forest. Dillet was brought into a state of hypnosis and suggested that he needed to save a young girl kidnapped by a monster. In this state, Paul was able to run much more and faster. This was the main achievement of the training process.

In 2007 Paul Dillet created his own federation of bodybuilding. He called it The World Bodybuilding And Fitness Federation (WBFF). The main task was to attract Canadian youth for fitness and bodybuilding. After the founding of the organization, rumors began that its goal was competition with the IFBB. But the hero of this article immediately refuted them.
