Nutrition Advice From a Natural Professional Bodybuilder
If you have been following my blog for a while now you will often see me speak about my good friend and old training partner Matt Liller. He is a Scivation sponsored athlete and a Musclemania Natural Pro. As you can see by these images he obviously knows what he's doing. The last time we had spoken was over Christmas break in
Roanoke,VA when we got a couple of workouts in. After training with him and my other good friends Ben Bowles and Chris Edmonds, which are also bodybuilders, I was easily influenced to start training as a bodybuilder again. For the past couple of days Matt and I have been shooting emails back in forth to get my diet down to a T. Since I'm preparing for what I feel is the most important shoots of my life (at the Arnold Classic weekend) I want to be in the best condition I've ever been in. With his guidance I am fully confident that I will be absolutely shredded. I've never been this meticulous about everything and I'm looking forward to seeing the end result!
He is the definition of dedication and discipline. When I told him that I've been having several cheat meals every weekend his response was that he went for 16 weeks without a cheat. This is pure motivation and inspiration for me. Matt will also be at the Arnold working the Scivation booth. We will also be filming a workout video. To learn more about Matt make sure to check out his youtube channel and his most recent interview with Simply Shredded
Today I decided to give my body a much needed break from the weights and just do some cardio. I did 30 minutes on the stair climber. I did a few high intensity intervals but it was mostly low intensity. After that I walked on a treadmill on speed 3.5 and incline set on 15.0 for 20 minutes. Tomorrow is Leg day then I'm filming my shoulder workout on Saturday. 2 full days of rest for my upper body and I'll be hungry to get in there and get an intense shoulder workout video. Here is another picture from my most recent Greg Vaughan shoot in NYC.
