RM: Calle Bolund, would you like to tell us a bit about your background and what made you want to become a bodybuilder?

CB: I always been active and always looked athletic. I played Ice Hockey a long time and played for one of eight Junior Elite Teams in Sweden as a Goalie. But at same year as I became 17 years old I injured my knee bad! I started to work out in the gym as rehab and when the knee was good enough to play I’d already lost my position in the team. And my muscles was growing fast, people started to see me, they liked what I did, told me I got big arms and so on. I started to lile the gym, ended the hockey as a 19 year old, put more time in school and studies. But I wanted to compete in something and many big guys told me I should try bodybuilding. Why not? And here I am today.

RM: You have competed quite successfully over the years. What are your future goals as a competitor?

CB: I want that GOLD MEDAL as a senior in the Swedish Nationals. I allso want an overall win and price for the best poser. Then I want to place top 3 at Europeans and top 5 at the World Championships.

RM: Who are your favorite bodybuilders?

CB: Theres a lot of physiques i like. Chris Bum have the optimal new era and golden days physique. In Sweden i think Andreas Fotiadis got the perfect physique (european overall champ 2015) and he posing like a greek god.

RM: What does an ordinary day in Calle’s life look like?

CB: No day is the other likewise. I got my girl in Stockholm, I studying at the University of Sundsvall where I also got my apartment, car, bike, dog and family and business. I have 3.5 year left to do at the school and I working on the gym as a Personal Trainer, Masseur and Nutritian. probably ill move to Stockholm next year.

I wake up everyday at 7, walk with my dog, eating and answer the mail. Then I work or study. Around 4-5 pm I do my work out. Every weekend I eat, foodprep and going on road trips with friends and my girl.

RM: Calle, if you could change anything in the bodybuilding industry, what would that be?

CB: More tests for anabolic steroids/controls! And more positivity in media/news.

RM: What does your weekly training schedule look like?

CB: Based on Y3T (Neil “Yoda” Hill) with help by my coach A. Lundgren – I work out 5-6 days a week. Most focus on the upper torso. No legs at all! The back has to grow much!

RM: When will we see you compete again?

CB: Tyngre Classic and Swedish Nationals Autumn of 2018 or 2019!

RM: Ok Calle, time for the round up, if there is anything you want to add or someone you want to thank please go ahead
