Though, now he lives in Los Angeles, California, United States, making videos and working out regularly with his brothers.

Tristyn has been serious about bodybuilding since the age of 15. However, bodybuilding is not his only passion. When Lee was only 5 years old, he discovered his passion for soccer.

Is Tristyn Lee Natural?

Tristyn Lee’s Diet:

Tristyn is considered to have a more carnivore diet with his macros looking like this:

  • 70% fat
  • 25% protein
  • 5% carbs

Tristyn’s found that his body runs better on fats than carbs as his energy source so with a keto-type diet, his body enters a state of ‘ketosis’, where he uses fat for energy instead of glucose, which means he eats about three pounds of meat per day.

And as a soccer player, he plays long matches, meaning his body requires a constant supply of calories. This is where dietary fats give him the edge. They give him a sustained energy supply as opposed to simple carbs, which tend to spike his blood glucose levels for a short window of time.

He eats a lot of pasture-raised eggs, grass-fed beef, salmon, sardines, beef liver, protein shakes, and shrimp, and usually gets around 2500 calories and over 215 grams of protein every single day. Lee is very precise when it comes to his meals, also making sure to get no more than 130 grams of fat and 9 grams of carbs a day as well.

“Some people do work better on carbs. But I’m not one of those people. Being a football/soccer player I feel extremely lethargic and heavy when I’m running off of carbs.” – Tristyn


Tristyn Lee’s Workouts:

Tristyn typically trains two times, per day, in the gym. Obviously, if you’re a beginner you won’t be working out as much, but even starting at 3-5 days per week(an hour or two each time) is a great way to start.

But if you’re interested in wanting to know what kinds of workouts Tristyn Lee does on the daily, here are a few exercises he does in each muscle group.


Lee starts his arm workouts with lighter weights. Then, as he goes through his sets, he’ll gradually increase the weight so that by his last set, he lifts as heavy as he possibly can and does exercises like:

  • Dumbbell Triceps Extensions, 5 sets of 8-12 reps
  • Barbell Curls, 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps
  • Biceps Curls, 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps
  • Close-Grip Bench Press, 4-5 sets of 10-12 reps with the last set to failure


Lee’s favorite leg-building exercises are squats. Though, he won’t do extra heavy squats until he feels confident his legs are fully warmed-up and ready.

Here’s an example of Tristyn’s leg workout:

  • Squats, 3-5 sets of 10-12 reps


  • Dumbbell Incline Press – 3 sets 8-12 reps
  • Flat Bench Press – 3 sets 8-12 reps
  • Smith Machine Flat Bench – 3 sets 8-12 reps
  • Machine Chest Press – 3 sets 8-12 reps


  • Dumbbell Lateral Raises – 5 sets 12-15 reps
  • Cable Front Raises – 4 sets 12-15 reps
  • Machine Lateral Raises – 3 sets 12-15 reps (superset)


  • Wide Grip Lat Pulldown – 4 sets 12-15 reps
  • ¾ Deadlift – 4 sets 8-12 reps
