The world of bodybuilding is changing. We are living in a moment in time that could simply be described as 'a change of the guard.' When I first heard about Zach Merkel it was because of the buzz created by his GoFundMe campaign.
Whoever said that 'bodybuilding is a sport of one,' clearly had no idea what they were talking about. Much like a boxer relies on his corner, a bodybuilder depends on his team. This unit usually consists of a trainer, a nutritionist, and a supplement expert. As the physiques in our sport have evolved, so too have the people that work with these elite level athletes.
