The World Natural Powerlifting Federation prides itself on standards of steroid-free powerlifting competitions and daily living, of which young men such as Troy Kay are a perfect example. Natural Powerlifting Champion Troy Kay stated that "My Dad always told me four basic things; hard work, commitment, sacrifice and dedication and the world will be one big candy store." However candy and other sweets are not on Troy Kay's menu. "I eat 6 times a day so that my body can absorb the food properly," added Troy Kay. Proper diet and nutrition is key to Troy Kay's commitment to succeeding, steroid-free. Proper carbohydrates and natural supplements, coupled with an unparalleled workout ethic are all contributors to Troy Kay's success.
While excelling at powerlifting Troy Kay has a real love for the game of football, at which he also excels. Troy Kay has been invited to participate in Schuman's National Underclassmen Combine Elite 100, The Premier Underclassmen Showcase/Combine, to which only 100, of the most talented young football players, receive an invitation. Troy Kay was selected as 1 of 14 players, to be MVP's.
"Troy is a very modest teen," stated Scott Kay, Troy's' devoted Father and mentor. "He is at a place that he will far exceed expectations, as he still has a year and a half to grow into this division."
While he has broken 3 world records, Troy has not actually trained for lifting competitions, he has been training for football, which makes his lifting success all the more incredible.
