Initially, Bumstead began bodybuilding as a hobby and trained under his sister’s husband, Iain Valliere. He participated in his first regional bodybuilding show when he was 19 years old in 2014 in Ontario, Canada, together with his sister, and won as a junior.

Dieting Plan and Workout Routine
Chris is very careful when it comes to what he eats, at least six times a day. He doesn’t pay much attention to his fat and calorie intake, but ensures that he reaches 6,000 calories per day, mostly from chicken, rice and potatoes. Bumstead usually takes oats and egg whites for breakfast, and his second meal is mostly made up of rice, chicken, and mixed vegetables. His next meal is mostly comprised of fish, mixed vegetables and sweet potatoes, and his pre-workout meal comprises rice and white fish. After working out, he takes a protein shake that is made of 100% whey isolate, and his following meal is sweet potato, asparagus, broccoli and chicken, and his last meal is the same as his breakfast.
Cbum works out five to six days per week, focusing on specific body parts per session. His favorite exercises are incline dumbbell presses, bent-over barbell rows, and squats. On his first day, Chris gives priority to back exercises, which include bent-over rows, wide grip latt pulldowns and deadlifts. On the second day, he focuses on bicep and chest exercises which comprise of smith machine bench press and incline dumbbell bench press. He then does glutes and hamstrings exercises on the third day, followed by triceps and shoulders on the fourth day. Chris’ fifth day is reserved for leg extensions, through standing lunges and leg presses.
