Michael's path to bodybuilding:
"I started playing American football. I was an athletic, fast and good player, but I had one drawback. I am quite small with my 170 cm and was rather a lanky guy at the beginning of my training career. With my scanty 60 kg, I quickly reached my limits with heavier players. As a pragmatic and direct person, I started with strength training and focused more on nutrition to improve my physical constitution. I was able to achieve success but for a long time I was still fixated on getting better in my team sport. The fascination for a strong and powerful body was already deeply anchored at that time. After many beautiful and successful years in American Football, the time came for me to start my military service. After the end of my service, I steadily gave myself more and more to the iron fever and until today, the passion for bodybuilding has grown steadily."
Michael's statement on Wiehenstahl shirts:
"Since I always rely on good and stylish clothing at work, shirts are everyday wear for me. Unfortunately, the physical changes from bodybuilding make it complicated to find reasonably fitting/cut shirts. Fit on top, I wear bag on the bottom and fit on the bottom, I can't get the buttons closed on top. This is why Wiehenstahl shirts appeal to me, because let's face it, any strength athlete/bodybuilder/set any sport that makes the body deviate from the standard knows this problem."
