Troy Alves Picture
Troy Alves was born on September 26, 1966 in Arizona where he lives today in Peoria with his wife and his young daughter. Troy was destined to become a pro baseball player and played college baseball very successfully until he got himself injured.
Troy was always a natural athlete and saw that he was able to put on muscle quickly and together with his perfect genetics for bodybuilding it was only a matter of time before he became professional. He joined the United States Airforce and over the years has been featured on many to magazines.
He started competing in 1996 where he took 8th place at the NPC USA Championships. Much later in 2003 he placed 10th in the Arnold Classic and his first Mr.Olympia placed 15th in 2004. He currently owes a supplement store where and continues to do personal training.
With Troy’s natural symmetry and balance he has always been in the top ten of any competitive bodybuilder on the circuit and should have better results that he shows to date. Troy stands 5'8" and weighs around 225 pounds for a contest and about 245 pounds in the off-season.

He does about 16 sets per body-part but as he says it could change to more volume if he is training for a competition. He would also include some cardio towards the last week or ten days before the show. Troy insists on correct form when training as he says an injury can mean the end of your career.
