    • Alex,

      Do you advocate low-intensity or HIIT in the off-season and why?

        Thanks my friend, you are truly a special person yourself. I would love to meet you bro! you are a great guy yourself.

        let me tell you guys something. In my opinion, the best thing about bodybuilding for me, is the relationships, friendships and wonderful people that i have met. They will last beyond my years as a competitor.

        I appreciate what you said Silverbackn you always have a friend here, and any of you guys can come to me for any advise, or help.

        My goal is to win at the nationals. I am working toward that this year.

        I dont really care that much competing as a pro and If I do, its for you folks, my fans and friends.

        I want to be someone who will take the time to help a fellow bodybuilder and go out of my way to be kind and nice.
        Bodybuilding is not for tough guys, its a sport for nice guys, family guys, dads and husbands, mothers, and wives.

        Lets face it, we are not going to be massive freaky pros so we are all in it together trying to do our best with the genetics we got. We have to train smart and help each other.

          Hey Alex! I just wanted to thank you again for all your help. You have a lot of knowledge in this sport. Your pics are incredible & are proof of your knowledge. If you get a chance to post some pics of your clients in contest shape I'd love to see them as I'm sure others would to if they don't mind you posting them. Or, you may have them on your website? I'll have to check it out again. I will keep you in mind for when I am prepping for a show again bc I would like to hire someone to help next time around. I'm fighting off the flu right now . I hope to be back in the gym tomorrow.

            Thanks yourself! and it was no problem, i hope i was of help. I love this sport and am very involved.

            Getting a Muscletech contract for me was the icing on the cake. I will be around for a while.
            I attend all the shows here in Los Angeles and California and am excited and committed to being my all time best this year at nationals. Anyone I help i put my heart into it. And even those who i answer questions for here are going to get my best answer.

            Of course I cant draw up diet plans, cardio, thermo progression and all involved in contest prep here on a message board, those persons need my full attention and time.

            Please dont go to my website just yet as it is currently being remodeled and it will be updated within days.

            One competitor Im helping one hundred percent with his prep is Tres Bennet who is competing at the Emerald Cup on April 19th. He is a solid competitor who has a good chance at a big win there in Washington.

            He promotes the Junior USA which is a pro qualifier in figure. He is a great guy and is pretty dialed in now at 4 weeks out.

            I will have his pics up soon. Some of the other competitors im helping are doing shows in June and July, so of course they are not in contest shape yet, but will be.

            Im also very excited about some of the members I have helped from the forums and should get thier pics up too as they have made some dramatic weight loss without a show to strive for, just determination.
            Anyways, thanks for what you said and that is cool to keep me in mind down the road. I will tell you one thing, I feel my best strength is my knowledge of diet, thermogenics and cardio to get ripped. Check out this transformation.

                Thanks for the kind words bro, very humbling coming from a guy like you. I will be in your neck of the woods soon, I'm sure we will cross paths soon!

                I totally agree with you, it is all about the relationships and irreplaceable people that you come across along the way. I have met many people that left a huge mark on me as soon as I came into their presence. It is a great feeling to share something that you're passionate about with someone that can relate to you, it's even better when you see the depths of those people and the true substance of them.

                I'm glad you have my back bro, that support means a lot.

                I hope that you achieve your goal of winning Nationals and then going to the next level as a pro. I KNOW that you are and will continue to achieve your goal of helping and touching those around you. That is undeniable. Your so right bro, 99.999% of us will never be anywhere near a pro stage and will never be mass monsters. It's all about us being the best with what we were given and helping others reach their potential along the way!!!

                  Well spoken my friend! this is so true. I always got your back and looking forward to meeting up!

                  Purebeef : your totally welcome bro, i was once the guy asking all the questions, time goes by pretty fast, and I learn fast because life is one big learning experience. If you don't learn from others you will often never learn.

                      Thanks for noticing that bro. I did a photo shoot with Iron Man and they did a workout video of me and they are using the pics in their magazine.

                      Muscletech signed me to a sponsorship/supplement contract this year. They are sponsoring me to compete this year at the nationals.


                      I have used Muscletechs fatburner Hydroxycut with good results.

                      As far as getting the fat off your lower back, its going to take the right diet, the right amount of cardio and training. It is a trouble spot for many but with a solid diet and plan you can do it bro.

                      Keep me updated on how things are going. Alex

Plus as far as time spent in the gym, the minimal amount of time is best to get your workout done. Meaning, bust out your workout and then eat. Dont spend endless time in the gym just to be there or drag out your workout. I bust through my sets fast to keep my metabolism up and to get my workout done . Allot can be accomplished in 45 minutes to one hour, minus cardio

                            • Alex, i have a quick question about my carbs, i am using oatmeal (morning) white rice the rest. My question is that i workout at about 5:30 and get home around 7pm after 30 cardio session. Instead of taking in my white rice right after workout should i have all that in before workout and then after my workout just take waxymaize for my carbs. I am afraid of eating carbs late at night as i think it might set on me and not get burned off. Please lmk what you think man. I appreciate it.

                                I like the idea of you eating your carbs before you train and not having a too many carbs after you train since its at night.

                                I am having the same situation with a guy im helping and we talked about that today. His last carb meal is before he trains so he just trains and eats egg whites and turkey for dinner with no carbs.

                                He is in contest mode and doesnt need the carbs at night. I would not use the waxy maise to be honest with you.

                                If you are not competing, I think the carbs would be ok. But not ideal for getting shredded. This guy is getting shredded for his show.

                                Thanks for asking and let me know how it goes
