Richard Choueiri is a former writer for ThoughtCo who contributed dozens of articles about bodybuilding, training, and exercise routines as well as nutrition and competitions for over three years.
Although he first started working out as a bodybuilder in 2004, it wouldn't be until after he graduated with a Double Major and Double Minor for his Bachelor of Science degree from Rutgers State University in 2014 that Choueiri would start writing about the field. Since then, Choueri has become both an ACSM-certified personal trainer and a National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association (NESTA)-certified mixed martial arts conditioning coach.
Richard Choueiri's work has appeared in a number of publications including the San Francisco Chronicle, Physique magazine, and STACK Fitness, and he is the author of the health and fitness guidebook "The Human Statue Workout."
