RESULTS

16.2lbs down in 12 weeks
1.35lbs per week

This past Sunday I finished my 2nd 3 month dieting cut with the Renaissance Periodization auto templates (if you don’t know RP, just ask). I learned a lot from my first cut which ended on Halloween 2015. From that point through Valentines Day I simply maintained my weight and worked on building my calories and strength. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a trip to Disneyworld were all in my way which would’ve made ...

Required Eating! The Pre-Workout Meal

Posted by:

A very common trend over the years I’ve experienced are clients coming in not having eaten enough or at all prior to their workout. This has occurred for years in the mornings and in the afternoons, very common. If you are not having a well balanced pre-workout MEAL then you’re not maximizing your potential. There is no generally healthy individual on the planet that would not benefit greatly from fueling their body pre-workout vs not doing so, zero exceptions. The ...

No Progress? Stuck In A Rut?

Posted by:

Have you been doing the same thing for a while and not getting anywhere? What once worked for you is no longer working for you?

If thats the case then you must make a change. Your body adapts so that means your programming and nutritional needs must adapt as well.

The first question you need to answer is whether you have hit your plateau with your current programming or have you simply not stuck with the program to the extent ...

Artificial Sweeters Do Not Cause Weight Gain!

Posted by:

Another anti-Splenda (artificial sweetener) “study” was released last week filled with misinformation and fear mongering, which makes my job increasingly more difficult with these ridiculous headlines. Splenda evidently causes everything from cancer to weight gain and everything in between.

The International Food Information Council Foundation has gone on record as saying…”the safety and effectiveness of sucralose (and other low-calorie sweeteners in foods) is incredibly well supported, you shouldn’t hesitate to swap them into your diet in efforts to reduce caloric ...

Easiest Protein Pancakes In Less Than 5 Minutes

Posted by:

A lot of other fitness websites post recipes online, I’m no cook nor do I make anything extensive so very rarely will I be posting any recipe. There is a brand of whole wheat protein pancakes mix manufactured by Kodiak Cakes that only needs to have water added, no recipe will be any easier than that. It took me less than 5 minutes to mix, cook, and clean yesterday when I tried these for the first time.

1/2 a cup of ...

Why January 1st May Be The Worst Time To Start Your New Workout Routine

Posted by:

What I say may not apply to everyone but I think it’s safe to say it applies to the vast majority of new gym goers who make it their mission to begin their big lifestyle change on January 1st. Of course the New Years Resolution is usually preceded by Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years parties centered around food that isn’t so friendly towards the waistline.

1. It’s the cool social thing to do, a herd mentality. Unfortunately, for most new years ...

Injury Prevention, Act Like You’re Already Hurting

Posted by:

Injury prevention is an often overlooked aspect of training.

Many take their “injury free” state for granted and do not see the need to adequately warmup, buildup in weight prior to lifting heavy, foam roll before/after workouts, theracane before/after workouts, lightly stretch before/after workouts, get adequate sleep for recovery, take care of their diet for recovery, etc…Not until an ache, a pain, or an injury occurs. THIS IS TOO LATE!

I’ve been weightlifting since I was about 16 or so and ...
