Boom! With my lovely teammate @PaigeHathaway at the FitX in Australia today! Come say whattup! Been a crazy ride this last year, so stoked to be leading this team with her into the future. Best part about this team is that we appreciate every single person that has been supportive of our movement. You will NEVER see a Shredz athlete bash another athlete or company, we always carry ourselves with class and integrity. Here's to a badass weekend!
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." - Maya Angelou
Just landed in Australia with my team, holy sh*t that was a long flight. Still so blessed and thankful to be here! Looking back I realized there is no way that I'd even be here if I didn't change my attitude towards the gym 4 years ago when I was 19. I used to hate the gym, now I can't go without it. If you don't like where you're at in life, change some of your decisions. Can't change something? Change your attitude. It's that simple. Gonna be at the FitX next three days! Come say whattup! #iloveyourface

Gentleman, don't look for the woman that's perfect. Wait for the one that will grind with you, sacrifice with you, and chase her dreams with you. It's sad when you can spot a couple and you just know they are together because neither of them have the courage to day goodbye. If you're not happy in your relationship, don't be in it. Just remember that when you find a good one, all she needs is your time, your love, and attention. Give her that, and she should be happy. If she's not, she's most likely not the one.
"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." - Norman Vincent Peale
Look at this picture. See that kid on the left? Yeah that's me. I don't even remember what it felt like to be that small. There's nothing wrong with being small, however being small was something that I eventually hated. I got picked on, I was bullied. I was told over and over and over again that I wouldn't make something of myself. Take a look in the mirror, like what you see? Yeah? Good. Keep doing what you're doing. Don't like what you see? Get your ass up and make a change. I was 19 years old on the left and a freshman and San Jose State University. I got a full ride scholarship for cross country. One day I just gave it all up for the gym. I haven't looked back since. I realize now more than ever, it doesn't matter how many material items we possess, or how much money we have in the bank. True happiness comes from within, it comes from working your ass off to prove to yourself and everyone else that you CAN achieve what you want to achieve. You have to want the body you dream of more than anything else in the world. Don't do it for them, do it for YOU. Tell me I can't do something, and I'll tell you when it's done.
One day, I'm going to wake up, roll over on my side, and kiss the love of my life good morning❤️ Until then I've gotta take @FrenchiePhysique to the bathroom before he pisses everywhere. Also, I've gotta get my fasted cardio in, no time to waste 🐶🏃.
"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves." - Mahatma Gandhi
Figure out what it is you truly want in your life, then calculate exactly what it's going to take to get there. Once you do both of those, create a plan and execute. A lot of people just give up after a week of eating clean and working out because they don't see results. You shouldn't take on this lifestyle with a "finish line" mentality. There is no finish line, this is a LIFESTYLE for LIFE. This is everyday you bust your ass and nourish your body as best you can until you are dead. If you want big rewards, you have to take big risks. I'm going to post one of my transformation pics tomorrow just so you can see again how far I've come with a positive mindset and relentless work ethic. That's all it takes. Had a badass workout tonight, just prepped 30 meals for my Australia trip, yes I said 30. No Excuses!
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
It doesn't matter how attractive you are, how much money you have, or how much talent you have. What matters is that you are using your God given talents and gifts to help those around you. There is no substitute for hard work. I don't push myself everyday to the brink of exhaustion because I like it. I do it because I NEED to, because I have goals, because there are people that want to see me fail everyday and are just patiently waiting for me to slip up. Unfortunately for them I won't, because it's not even about ME. It's about US, I care about each and every single one of you that supports me. And I will continue to push my body to the limits so you can see exactly what your body is capable of. Don't ever give up on your dreams, new week starts tomorrow. Let's f*cking crush it. I'm coming for you Australia 😈
My Rules for Success and building the best body possible:
1: Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same.
2: You must always be humble and ask others questions about nutrition and weightlifting.
3: Don't worry about what other people say, or how they feel about you. Their opinions do not matter.
4: Wake up everyday hungry and ready to take on new challenges in and outside of the gym.
5: Never be satisfied with where you're at, and always look to help others better themselves.
If you can do these things, you will continue to improve every single day, and over time you'll not only become stronger physically, but mentally you'll be on another level and reach goals you've never thought possible. Remember, it's YOU vs YOU.
DEVIN GIVES BACK!

What's up everyone a lot of you have asked if I'd be at the Arnold in Ohio this weekend and I will not. My #Shredz teammates and I are preparing to head to Australia on Tuesday for a week so I'm stoked.

"Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself." Walter Anderson
Bad things happen to great people every single day. Nevertheless you should always strive to be a great person. Sometimes we cannot control what happens to us. However, we can control our attitude and perspective towards our circumstances. Don't dwell on the past because the past has already forgotten you. Don't stress about the future because it isn't here yet. Appreciate and focus on this moment right now, because you never know just how many moments you have left. Go to the gym today, and when you walk through those doors take a deep breath, and say to yourself "I'm here for a reason, I want to change my body, and I want to change my life. I will not leave this gym until I am 100% satisfied with my workout, and the improvements I made today." This is YOUR life. No one else's. Only YOU have the power to control and change your life.

Mhmmm that's right, Yes I am a gentleman. Yes, I will treat you like a goddess, but only if you deserve it. I don't put up with bullshit, you have my trust until you do something to lose it. I will never judge someone by their past, because it doesn't matter. Everyone starts with a clean slate for me, just be respectful, be kind, and remember that your character is your most valuable attribute. It's a mans job to respect a woman, but remember it's also a woman's job to give a man something to respect. Gimme that and ill be spanking you 🙊 #iloveyourface
"In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept constructive criticism. Without one-hundred percent dedication, you won't be able to do this." - Willie Mays
If you don't have the mental capacity to be so dedicated and obsessed about the results that you want, and the physique you ultimately wish to achieve, then you're never going to reach your goals. This is a lifestyle, and I applaud every single one of you that wakes up and puts in the work, and is disciplined every single day. I will always be open to constructive criticism. Do I have the best physique on the planet? Hell no I don't. But that's what pushes me everyday to get better and better at what I do. If you're not constantly improving at something, you're not living. Remember that.
NEVER SATISFIED, ALWAYS HUNGRY!
Halloween two years ago with my boy @ChadMcBain. I met this kid when he was strugglin, I knew he had a ton of potential, but he just needed that extra push to realize it for himself. When a lot of people I grew up with from my hometown were hating, and putting negativity out there, he was there pushing me, and encouraging me to keep going and crush the weights. I wouldn't have this mindset and goal of changing the world if he wasn't constantly around making sure I didn't get complacent, that's why I'm never satisfied. Now this kid and I get to travel the world and help people for a living. Always remember, who you hangout with on a daily basis ultimately defines where you go and who you become. Hang with the wrong people and you won't get anywhere, hang with the right people and you'll be surprised just how far you can go.
Haha this little guy brings so many laughs to our place. It's crazy seeing a puppy figure things out day by day. Only this time he figured he could fly. Maybe next time @FrenchiePhysique 😄😝
#humpdaymotivation "Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally." - David Frost
Every single person on Earth that has put in the work in the gym consistently, with 100% effort has seen results. The only reason you wouldn't ever see results, is if you quit on yourself. It's absolutely okay to fail, because we can learn from failure, it's not okay to give up. The pain of discipline is nothing compared to the pain of regret. If you keep giving up on yourself with anything you choose to do, you just don't want it bad enough. Are you living? Or are you just breathing?
NEVER SATISFIED, ALWAYS HUNGRY!
she is the definition of perseverance. It's amazing to see how far she's come in just a short amount of time, and it is well deserved.
We became Shredz teammates last year, and since then our bond has grown stronger by the day. We trust each other, we support each other, and we build each other up. I'm proud to stand next to her and lead this team into the future. She embodies everything a woman should strive for, she works her ass off, and even under the biggest microscope, she keeps herself together, and her integrity stays intact.
Ladies, the next time you feel defeated, or feel like you can't do something, look at her and just know that she is always there to inspire and push you to reach your goals, and show you what is possible, when you want something bad enough❤️ #TEAMSHREDZ

"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Steve Jobs
Steve changed the world because he trusted in SOMETHING, himself. Trust is the most valuable piece to any relationship, including the relationship with yourself. If you doubt yourself constantly, you will not be successful, it's that simple. Of you trust yourself and your abilities, doors will open. It's okay to be your own critic, just make sure you connect the dots in your past and use them to build a better future. Trust me.

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these" - George Washington Carver
Another Monday night doing what I love, always remember this, how you handle yourself and how you treat people will dictate how far you go in life. I bust my ass everyday to prove to myself of what I am capable, and show you first hand of what you are capable of. You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. Wake up everyday with the mindset of "what can I do for other people and for this world that I live in?" It's not just about YOU, it's about US. Let's work together and support each other, there is no time for hate, you with me? Now let's kill it this week.
DOUBLE TAP IF YOU AGREE
Yes I'm single, not because I don't have the opportunity to be with someone. But because I'm doing ME right now, before I do a WE again. I've been in a shitty relationship, I've been hurt, I know what it's like to be unappreciated, and disrespected, it's not fun. The moment I realized my value and what I brought to the table of any relationship, is the moment I decided that I would never settle for less than what I deserved.
If you're one of those people that have been bouncing through relationships since high school and you're still not happy, change it up. Do YOU for once and give YOURSELF a chance to grow without having the crutch of someone else to lean on. That's when you'll know how truly strong you are. That's when you'll discover your value. Relationships are all about timing and effort. If one of those is missing, or isn't on point, it's not gonna last. Keep working, don't ever stop building YOUR foundation to a better future, and you'll see just how happy you can be.
HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?
A lot of you fellas may look at this picture of me and say "Impossible, I cannot get to that level." Bullshit. Yes you can. Is it clean eating? Is it consistent training? Is it lifting everyday? I'll tell you what it is. It's that burning desire that you discover within yourself to be someone you never thought you could. I haven't always looked this way, if you saw me three years ago you would've laughed. You would've asked me "do you even lift?" I didn't. But I'll tell you something, I found IT, and when you find IT, you discover something, something you never thought you had within yourself. And you use IT to reach goals you never thought you would set. What is IT you may ask? It's YOU, just patiently waiting deep within yourself. Your desire to change, must be bigger than your desire to stay the same. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You will succeed if you persevere; and you will find joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. Are you living, Or just breathing?
NEVER SATISFIED, ALWAYS HUNGRY!!!
outside today enjoying this beautiful weather walking @frenchiephysique in Orange County! I seriously can't wait to move back here in the summer. Brought out the big kid in me and messed around on that basketball court for old time sake! Hope everyone is having a great day, remember to never take advantage of the little things in life, cherish it.
