I should have added a voice over to date these shitty pictures but time is in short order this week. I do have lots of good pictures but that old hardrive is busted and needs repair, so . . . First pic I am about 150 - 155 lbs bodyweight; pics here have me about 290 heaviest - scaled back down some and today I am 276 lbs after 1 week into my current diet. Most recent picture here is at least 8 years old. Once again, MUSIC thanks to www.tecnoaxe.com

Best fat loss approaches no longer involve starvation - this approach is not new by any means, still, this is far from common knowledge and will be surprising to many. The tactic described here can be utilized by average, every day people, there are no "drugs" or magic potions required, afterall, "food" really is the most anabolic substance you can put into your body. You cannot selectively "starve" only a part of an organism; feed your body, and burn your fat off - the results will speak for themselves.

After watching this video, please consider the heart of the intended message - sure, we all probably realize that low rep sets are not the ideal for hypertrophy, and, we also know that more than 15 reps is probably not the ideal . . . but that doesn't mean these other rep ranges will not assist you in your quest for swoledom. I believe most people trying to gain size in the gym need to focus more on the extent of demand their selected rep range is placing upon the muscle - are they going hard enough or simply counting repetitions?

This video is directed toward those people just starting their journey - looking to get BIG. Sure, you need to formulate basic exercises and you need to consume more calories than you expend - but other than that, what do you need to know?

Tailor your nutrtion to fit your goals. Do you want to build muscle? How much muscle? Do you want to get lean? How lean? Do you want to flounder endlessly trying this and that or make your daily diet/food intake a huge chore? How do you know what details matter? Is there a basic, more streamlined approach? Check out this video and get a better idea of how to prioritize the intrinsics of your approach.

On my Back days, I finish with specific rear delt work and some medial work; on my Chest days, I finish with specific front delt work and medial work - the workout depicted here is an extra shoulder routine at the end of the training week. I am also still recovering from a severe SLAP tear, so all told, I am placing a great deal of workload on my shoulders in the course of a week - exercises I perform for shoulders on previous days are different exercises than I am doing here. When I do a chest and/or back video, I will show the other shoulder exercises. Music, once again, provided by Teknoaxe, song is called "The Trudging" and is available at www.teknoaxe.com

I apologize if I am not doing the greatest job of explaining what I am hoping to get across here. Various points to consider include that an additional 50 grams of protein consumption correlates to a 200 calorie increase. Also, source of the protein, digestibility, and even more factors come into play. I mention here the amount of protein I can consume daily without any seeming reduction in muscle mass - that number then is lower than what I find I require to gain additional muscle. In short, I am looking at .5 to .75 grams of protein per pound of body weight to maintain muscle mass and 1.25 to 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight to "gain" ,muscle mass. One could argue that an increase or decrease in body fat percentages would impact these numbers, but as muscle mass increases, percentage of body fat axiomatically decreases where no additional body fat is gained. This is all best left simplified, IMO, hence, these are my generalized numbers I apply.

For the uninitiated, it can be overwhelming and confusing looking around in search of the truth in diet choices. By being clear as to your own situation and expectation, you might more easily be able to sort through the many choices out there. In this video, I hope to share with you what I have found to be the ultimate approach to dieting, in light of my own personal expectations and goals.

People often ask me about dropping water / drying out and what to do with the carbs in a final week precontest stage. How do you get dry? How do you get shredded? How do you still come in full? Here, Andrew Kastor talks about what he is doing in this last week prep. His "tune up" show is 1 week away (actually 6 days) - if you saw last week's video and observe the drastic change in his physique in this past week, look now and listen to how he is doing things so when you see him on stage next weekend, you will have an honest insight into how this radical change is /has happened. Many (sadly, most) precontest approaches are extremely unhealthy and often immediately dangerous - this is a bare bones, effective approach Andrew is using which will still leave him in amazing condition on the stage.
