Aesthetic Muscle Journal April 15th: Post Workout Meal Ideas and a Back Workout

A fellow Metabolic Masterpiece Physique Artist recently mentioned that they didn’t like to drink a post workout shake and they were looking for whole food alternatives for their post workout meal.

In today’s behind the scenes footage I swapped out my post workout shake for one of my favorite post workout whole food meals. I also provide some other post workout meal ideas.

You’ll also see some clips from our back workout and focused calves training.

…Plus a discussion on caloric intake for us Lightweights.

Aesthetic Muscle Journal April 14th: Changing Your Workout Every 4 Weeks

After 4 weeks on a three day full body workout routine we switched it up to a five day body part split routine. In today’s behind the scenes footage, I discus the reasons why I change things up every four weeks.

Of course, you’ll also see every meal I consumed today, plus some self massage tips for your upper back and shoulders. When those muscles are tight, they can negatively impact your chest workout.

Here’s my meal breakdown for the day…

Aesthetic Muscle Journal April 13th: Training Frequency, Meals, and Captain America

Do you manipulate your training frequency throughout the year? Some lifters are creatures of habit and get stuck in their own head.

There are pros and cons to every training frequency. Whether you prefer lifting 3 days per week while following a full body workout routine… or 5 days per week following a body part split routine, it would be wise to vary your training frequency every few months…


NOTE: duplicate dinner and dessert clips… sorry about that ;)

Through experience I have found that my body responds best to training each muscle group twice per week… with one workout focused on strength and the other on hypertrophy.

This structure allows me to experience excellent strength gains in addition to increases in muscle size… and it keeps my joints healthy in the process.

Yet, if I want to maximize my gains… it’s crucial that I vary the frequency… challenging my body by either a) training each body part more often with less volume per workout… or b) training each muscle less frequently while increasing the volume per workout.

This is the type of strategic design that you can find in my latest 6 month training system called AMP – Aesthetic Muscle Plan.

Here’s what the structure looks like…

This could be the most important journal entry I’ve made to date… and it’s the main reason I began documenting this transformation process… 100% complete transparency.

Here I am… in my most vulnerable state… stripped down to my underwear… and I could care less about the critics, because I am more than comfortable in my own skin…

Most of the time you see inspiring photos of people striking perfect poses under perfect lighting. I’ve been guilty of doing this myself… even taking multiple photos and selecting the best one to post online.

There’s nothing wrong with this. We all want to look our best… and when you’re sharing photos of yourself, whether it’s on Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest, in a family photo album, or on your wall… it’s natural to strike a pose that shows off your best features… and to only share the pictures you are comfortable with… and proud of.
