Shane Duquette is the creative half of Bony to Beastly. He’s a science communicator, writer, and illustrator with a degree in design and visual communication (BDes) from York University in Toronto, Canada.
Between 2010 and 2012, Shane gained popularity for blogging about building sixty pounds of muscle in those two years, starting severely underweight and bulking up to a healthy weight. Here’s a photo showing him at 130 pounds and 190 pounds:
Shane works closely with co-founder Marco Walker-Ng, a strength coach and personal training specialist (PTS) with a degree in Health Sciences from the University of Ottawa (BHSc). Since founding Bony to Beastly in 2012, they’ve helped nearly 10,000 clients bulk up alongside millions of readers. Their clients include MDs and PhDs, as well as college, professional, and Olympic athletes.
Shane has co-authored three books. His first, two Bony to Beastly and Bony to Bombshell, are bulking programs for skinny people:
His third book, Outlift, is a bulking program for intermediate lifters built around the “Big Five” hypertrophy lifts: the front squat, the bench press, the deadlift, the overhead press, and the chin-up.
