Love Training Delts With Ava

Training tip from IFBB Pro Figure Champion Ava Cowan…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Delts- The love of training them, and that I certainly do!

I prefer to explore all angles, hand positions and planes of motion. My goal is to target every single fiber, front to back equally, creating beautifully developed symmetrical shoulders.

In this exercise, the dumbbell front raise on incline bench, targets the anterior delts.

Incline front raises, using a pronated hand position (palms facing the floor) may be alternated with a semi-supinated (palms facing each other) grip.

-Start this exercise by lying supine on an incline bench set to 45 degrees.Â
-With the elbows slightly bent, raise the dumbbells using your shoulders until your arms are parallel to the floor or slightly higher.Â
-Keep a slight bend in the elbow and raise the weight.Â
-Stay in control of the exercise with a tempo of a count of two up and four on the way down. -Lower the weight under control to a dead stop before repeating.

Sets: 2-4
Reps: 6-10
Rest: 90 seconds


Iron – The Best Supplement

My favorite supplement has always been Iron! Lifted, pushed, pulled, and curled. Typically in as much weight as I could handle. One of the reasons I have always liked Palm Springs Fitness Center as my gym… 150lb dumbbells. Always needed them for one arm back rows.

For many years you have seen my photography featured in much of the fitness industry from magazines to online resources. My photography features, competition coverage and advertising have been a mainstay in such well known places as Iron Man Magazine, Planet Muscle Magazine and Bodybuilding.com.

My advertising work has been seen everywhere from the magazines to major newspapers, wrapping city buses and billboards. All around the world in many languages. Creative paths and opportunities have also sent me in many directions including motion picture still photography. That afforded me one of the highlights of my life, working with Hollywood luminaries Gena Rowlands and Rita Moreno on the motion picture ?Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks?. The Director of Photography was the very respected and esteemed Vilmos Zsigmond, said to be the greatest Cinematographer who has ever lived. Not yet done with directions…

I am the photographer for the Palm Springs Air Museum. CNN lists it as one of the best Air Museums in the world. It is also a rarity because it is a flying museum. As a little boy I used to build military aircraft models and hang them from the ceiling in my room. Now my photography hast taken me full circle again. I also manage the Air Museum social media so I have great latitude in creating content, photos and video.

Even more diverse is my work in fashion and lifestyle photography. Published from Rome to Los Angeles. Thanks!

Dedication!

It is not easy to get my attention in the world of bodybuilding and fitness. I have seen so very many. But Jessica Holohan sure did because I knew right away she had put in a lot of hard work and dedication! I had not seen her in a long time so when she showed up for her photo shoot I was totally blown away! Fresh off an NPC Bikini Competition I hardly recognized her. Wow! Outstanding!

Photo Shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!


I’m Not There But I Am

The Arnold Sports Festival 2018 in Columbus OH is underway and the huge Expo is about to open tomorrow Friday. Hundreds of thousands of people will fill the convention center among 1000 booths from fitness related companies. Although I am not there, my photographs fill some of those booths and displays.

My all time favorite and longest running… Renee kissing the egg for Egg Whites International. They just set up their booth and if they had tried to shoot a photograph of it tomorrow you never would have seen because of all of the people around it. If you just count all of the people who have seen this display at Arnold Sports Festivals in Columbus Ohio, it would be millions.

The Arnold Sports Festival, most known for it roots as a premier bodybuilding competition is actually 20,000 athletes participating in 75 sports and events from 80 nations around the world. “We are very proud to provide the opportunity for athletes, a majority of them youth, to compete at the largest multi-sport festival in the world.”

Gallery Show To Be Seen?

Kind of funny that people expect that because I typically am not interested in doing gallery shows that my work is not seen. More people have seen my photography in a month than most will be seen in their entire lifetime.

From bodybuilding and fitness to fashion and now aviation, my photographs have been in ads and magazine features, major newspapers, motion pictures, news broadcasts, brochures and billboards around the world.

This one is among my latest, a full wall size backlit display for the Palm Springs Air Museum at the Palm Springs International Airport. A few million people in a year will see this one. Thanks!
