Yesterday I talked about how it’s important to have your nutrition and training strategies in place if you’re serious about achieving your goals

 

Today I am going to show you my training and nutrition strategies for the past and upcoming year

 

Maybe it’s something that you can use form now

 

First I am going to talk about the ups and down sides of training

 

Anyone that works with me will tell you iam a big believer in using every type of training and nutrition system going if it suits a certain situation

 

I am not one for just doing what ever the in buzz strategies that’s floating around or just giving a watered down version of what my coach gives me.

 

Like I said before

 

There is more than one way to skin a cat

 

And

 

There’s something that may suit one individual more than another

 

But the main thing is to strategically switch things around working towards your goals

 

So polarity exists in all aspect of life

 

Where there’s night there is day

 

Where there is sunshine there is rain

 

Everything that I teach and everything that you will ever learn in strength hypertrophy and fat loss training has upsides and downsides

 

That’s the reason for structured periodisied planning

 

There’s no such thing as the perfect routine, training method or diet protocol

 

Rather than thinking of this as a negative think of it as a positive aspect to life and training

 

You get to try something new and give your mind and muscle a new stimulus to carry on growing and improving

 

How many times do we see people doing the same shit time and time again and not gaining a single ounce of muscle or losing a lb of body fat?

 

I would put their lack of results down to purely not providing their body and mind with a new stimulus

 

If your body’s not forced to adapt it wont

 

Your bodily systems are always trying to find balanced

 

My job is to take it slight out of balance

 

Just think of the first time that you lifted a weight

 

How sore where you over the next few days and how quickly you added lbs. of muscle to your frame

 

These first 6 -8 weeks you grew like a weed

 

Lifting weights was all-new

 

And your body had to adapt to deal with the stress

 

But eventually that all stop and gain began to slow until eventually totally stopping

 

Change the stimulus and things start happening again!

 

That’s the concept that I am talking about right there

 

Change of stimulus, built in progression and thought out regression & Deloads all need to be part of your training not just going in the gym and constantly smashing out heavy lift after heavy lift

 

Be smart

 

Train smart

 

And eat smart

 

Anyhow

 

Here’s my simplified rough plan for this years prep

So as you can see everything is laid out, and this is the sort of thing that I have planned out for every single one of my clients

 

Just to keep the body guessing and forcing it to adapt and grow

 

Obviously things can change, as life isn’t as always as smooth as writing stuff down on a piece of paper

 

But you get the general idea
