    They are thanking them for allowing them to live there dream lol! Most endorsements for high end pros include pay, free supplements, and paid travel expenses. Most amateur endorsements are just free supplements and both get the advantage of having there image out to the masses and free promotion.

What do you believe is the best level of intensity on the stepmill to achieve maximum fat loss while maintaining as much muscle as possible in just a half hour.
    when Im on the stairs I do it at a level that does not allow me to do anything else but focus on the stairs. I cant text, read or take phone calls. Half the time I not listening to music, I just keep my headphones in to keep people from starting a conversation with me. I keep the speed anywhere between 6 and 10 depending on the particular machine.

    yes Im sure that is part of it. There are so many things that go on that you wouldnt see or think of. Booking flights,hotels,cars etc making travel and the whole experience easier on the athlete. I am very luck to be part of a close knit Team at MHP so when I thank them its also to thank for the moral support and interaction that makes me feel like a champion and true professional. So far in my short time with MHP I think I have received a personal phone call from each person in the office to see if and what I needed, that is how it should be. If you treat your team and employees like champions and with the utmost respect, they will run through a wall for you and that's the way i feel right now! Go Big Blue!!!!

    I dont like to think of these amateur contracts as "free" supplements. Myself and many others who have had these type of contracts have worked there tail off to build a brand name for themselves and earn the respect of fans,judges,competitors and heads of companies, therefore earning every nickel of the cost of those supps. Nothing in life is free!

    you actually hit it on the head. I do 4 sets of 4 sometimes 5 different exercises 8-25 reps. It really depends on the body part and how Im feeling on that particular day. Bigger bodyparts tend to get more attention as far as exercises, example back or legs will almost always get 5 exercises per workout where arms only get 3 exercises maybe 4 on a good day but if I do less sets I tend to do more drop sets or super sets, keeping the total volume high.

    Jose, How often do you deload/train light with less intensity and not going to failure? And how often do you take a week off?

    Thanks.

    Thats a tricky question. I dont usually go to complete failure as in cant move anymore, I think this can be a little dangerous but I do my reps until I cant do them safely or my form breaks. I only take time off from the gym after a competition. I took 8 weeks off after my last show last year and another 2 weeks off after New York this year.

    Jose, you say you took 8 weeks off last year. I assume you maintain your diet and everything on that break? Or do you slack just a little bit to take full advantage of the time off?

    I slack a little but the base of my diet was clean and I actually lost a few lbs went down to about 215 as appose to my usual 225-230lb off-season weight.

    So it's safe to say that aside from post-competition, you don't take a week off or go lighter? Don't you ever overtrain psychologically from all the intensity with the training. Like burned out mind wise, body too?
