Arnold Fitness Expo 2014

Another Arnold Fitness Expo has come and gone.  I think it is my 12th expo representing AST Sports Science and probably my 20th overall counting when I would go every year before being part of Team AST.  Many things about the expo have changed over all the years, yet many have stayed the same.  I think one common positive thread each year is inspiration.  It is still a chance to meet your favorite fitness industry standouts and gain some extra motivation to fuel your personal fitness goals, whatever they may be. One of the things I enjoy...

Chest Training Tips!

I recently received a request for chest training tips so here you go! Here are my top training tips to help you maximize chest development. Keep the frequency low: Train chest directly one time per week only. Keep the volume low: 6-7  total sets for chest is plenty. Keep the intensity high: Use heavy weights in a 4-6 rep range. Use basic free weight exercises as your primary movements: Bench Press, Incline Press and Dips are my favorite! My favorite chest workout: Flat Barbell Bench….2 sets 4-6 reps (After warm-up) Incline Barbell...

Testimonial: Joseph Arevalo

I recently received this great testimonial that I wanted to share. I love hearing when people succeed by executing the SYSTEM! I’ve recently purchased your products as I have been seeing fantastic results from applying your principles. I’ve made more progress in 1 month than I have in the last 8 years that i have been bodybuilding. I’m so taken back by my progress that I now realize I’ve wasted many years of misguided physical & mental effort, which is a tough pill to swallow. As soon as I discovered you I was quick...

Fat Loss Nutrition Tips

Helpful nutrition tips to promote fat loss & muscle gain! Focus on consistent nutrition by eating every few hours and have each meal consisting of a protein source such as chicken, turkey, fish, lean beef, egg whites or meal replacement drink. Try to avoid going 3 or more hours with no meals as this will slow your metabolism. A good meal replacement shake makes for a great “in-between” meal or can be used as any meal of the day when you have a hard time getting to food. Keep most of your carbohydrate intake around your workout and the...

Winning The “Pro Card”

Ten years ago this weekend at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City my hands were raised in victory as I was named the overall champion at the NPC Team Universe. I had many great moments in my bodybuilding career but you could say that was the most significant.  With that win I earned professional status with the IFBB which was my ultimate competitive goal from the time I started bodybuilding at the age of 16.   That night saw the realization of my dream and also the end of my competitive career as that would be the final time...

Success Stories – More Great Transfomations!

Recently I’ve received some outstanding transformation stories from people who’ve achieved tremendous success by executing the “SYSTEM” and I wanted to share them with you. As always, I want to thank and congratulate these individuals and encourage you all to EXECUTE! Jonathan Bohn I was in a deep rut. I had gained 40lbs in approximately 2 years and had become a person I no longer recognized.  I was desperate for a change. I was 25, and felt 55. Worst of all I looked unhealthy, unhappy and unmotivated. Through the encouragement and...

The “System” at work again! Nick Carey’s Transformation Story

Nick Carey recently sent  his story to me and I am sharing it with all of you.  Thank you Nick. Back in 2009 and the years before that I was a chubby teenager with a lot of social issues. A lot of this was brought about from being very unhappy with my physical condition and my general body image.  I first learned about Max-OT...
