Who is Dorian Yates, a bodybuilder?

Dorian Yates is a former English bodybuilder who competed professionally. He was born in Warwickshire on April 19, 1962.

Yates started bodybuilding training while incarcerated in the 1980s, and he went on to win 15 major competitions. He attributes his success to a method in which he writes down his goals on a piece of paper and then signs it.

He claims that anyone looking to break into the industry should follow this advice. Yates’ career was cut short by injuries, which the athlete later claimed were brought on by the “intensity, stress, and overload” of his training.

He has stated that if he could go back in time, he would “have given [himself] more rest” because he spent the majority of his time as a bodybuilder dedicated to a strenuous routine and a strict diet.

documentary from 2019 The impressive life and career of Yates were profiled in The Original Mass Monster.
