NASM & TRX Certified personal trainer in southern California. I do consultation and private sessions both online and in person.
I had a member today come up and tell me I was the best trainer at the facility. Told me I deserved what’s happening and I definitely was the most knowledgeable. I cried a little when I thanked him.
Dealing with a neck injury. I’ll have more time to get back to writing with this new opportunity.

Think you can beat me, or want to comment?
My best strength gains have always come from IF.
Keep in mind I’m not talking contest prep cutting, I’m talking a longer-term fat reduction. Contest prep cutting isn’t usually sustainable for more than 6-8 weeks due to the low fat aspect (if your body responds to that route). Even a low-carb diet for a long period of time can be harmful.
Cut first. You’ll have to get the diet down solid either way, so you’ll want to cut first to get used to the diet so that from there you can do a clean bulk (which will just be manipulating a few numbers in the diet itself rather than an entire meal switch). At 32.5% you won’t see much aesthetically to keep you enjoying your progress if you’re a visual person that needs to “see” results in yourself to stay motivated.
Even my girls I work with now (21 y/o and 24 y/o) who are around 23-24%BF I still keep on a cutting diet food-makeup wise but just manipulate the carbs and calories for development versus fat loss.
I don’t actually. I know there was a directory being put together at some point, but in not sure what ended up happening with it. Sorry, I’m not much help there.
Create a realistic goal with a realistic time frame. Action without a goal has a much larger chance to become stagnant.
