Josh Heath


BBG: Hi Josh. Why don’t we start by telling us a little about yourself: your name, background, where you grew up, anything you want us to know.

JOSH: My name is Josh Heath and I’m 20 years old. I grew up in Jamestown, New York, and went to Cassadaga Valley High School, and I graduated in 2009. I was always the runt of my class up until my senior year when I started putting on a few pounds. I played baseball up until my junior year.

BBG: Like everyone in this part of our website, you’re an avid Big Back Grips user. What did you use before BBGs and why did you settle on BBGs? How do they help your workout?

JOSH: I started off with just regular wrist wraps (cheap ones) and I figured out that they ripped after just a month or two of use. BBGs help with my grip substantially, and help keep your hands a little softer than normal. If you have little hands, I suggest these would be the most helpful to you!


BBG: What are current stats? What’s your ultimate goal in terms of weight?

JOSH: I’m 5’7” and 201 pounds (pre-contest mode right now for 2012 Mr. Buffalo on March 31st). My goal is 230 by the end of this summer!

BBG: Where do you work out?

JOSH: I work out at my high school and the local YMCAs

BBG: Did you play or excel at any sports?

JOSH: Baseball was the only sport I played throughout high school because I was too little for football. I was a very avid hunter.

BBG: What brought you into the world of lifting and when? What are your main goals in bodybuilding?

JOSH: I started lifting in 9th grade (2005) but didn’t start doing it right until my senior year (2009). I started bodybuilding in 2010 when I watched a friend of mine compete. My main and #1 goal is to be an IFBB pro, and I will not stop until I get there.
