The Hard Truth About Natural Bodybuilding!

My very first major competition here in the US was quite something.

I had trained for years and was really excited to finally be in a place where I could step onstage and realize my dream of looking like I belonged up there after years of training.

The day before the show, I met an old friend who I hadn`t seen in a few months, and he looked at me with a puzzled expression and asked,

"Kevin, what`s wrong?

Did you stop training?"

Yep!

He asked that!

I was in the best shape of my life up to that point and yet to him it looked like I had stopped training.

High Intensity Leg Extensions Pyramid Set.

This is what a set can typically look like, and I say "may" because I don`t always do straight sets and change things up quite a bit.

First set is to warm things up and do a bit of a check to see where I am, (are my knees okay?) and to get my mind ready for what`s to come.

Second set is where things get a little more difficult with the small rest periods, and for this workout I just decided on 10 reps.

I was going to do 10 reps no matter how heavy it became, same cadence, same squeeze, same focus.

And the last set it`s just that- it hurts from the very first rep but I just go to that place and keep the pace going with minimal rest.

Thanks to my training partner and partner in crime @egcitrin for loading the plates, and thanks to you for watching!!!

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Can You Make Gains with Lighter Weights and High Intensity Training?

New video out on YouTube and you can access it by clicking on the link in my bio or look up the latest video over at Kevin Richardson- Naturally Intense

I don`t give an answer but instead an observation.

A client study of a middle aged man who had not trained before but had made some progress over time and was able to lift the 70lb dumbbells for 6 reps, with a little help.

All training in a very well equipped gym with Naturally Intense High Intensity Training.

Now, the lockdown happens and he is relegated to training at home for 2 years with just a pair of 25lb dumbbells, and later a 60lb barbell.

That`s all he has for a three year period, nothing else!

He goes back into the gym

Picks up the 70lb dumbbells

And what do you think happens?

To find out check out my latest video and thanks in advance for taking the time to look at my work!

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

You don`t have to be massive to be impressive.

You don`t have to use drugs.

You don`t have to be so big that you can`t walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath.

And you certainly don`t have to look like a circus freak.

I think one of the problems with the enhanced look is that it feeds into the notion of excess.

The idea that what you have and who you are intrinsically isn`t good enough.

But you are.

You don`t need to be almost 300lbs and the muscle you are able to build naturally as the fruit of your hard work and years of dedication is always going to be enough if you are of sound mind and sound body.

You may not be an Instagram sensation with millions of followers, you may stop traffic walking down the street with a t-shirt on, but what you learn, how you feel and the better person you ultimately become on a natural path of self improvement will always hold far more meaning and last longer than any potential social media fame.

So stay natural, stay the course, believe in yourself because you are worth believing in, and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Here`s How I Do A High Intensity Belt Squat...

(Hint- I make it as hard as physically possible!)

I love belt squats.

They put less stress on your back and they are a bit like a more functional leg press, without taking up too much space (which is everything for a home gym!)

And this is one of the ways I use it- jump squats with weights!

To say it`s intense would not even begin to describe the blinding pain of this movement with this much weight, much less the week and a half of soreness that follows.

But plyometrics are one of the best ways to build muscle and increase strength!

Normally I would say you should go try this next time you train, but for this one I would say if you do start really light as most folks get an intense enough workout with bodyweight jump squats.

(And for the equipment minded, it`s a home made belt squat that I put together myself and installed on a @roguefitness Monster Lite Rack)

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

DO THE WORKOUTS REALLY LAST 10 MINUTES?

Yes, very often it takes more time to get to the gym than it does to do the entire workout!

I AM NOT IN GREAT SHAPE- IS THIS WORKOUT SUITABLE FOR ME?

Many of our clients never set foot in a gym before working with us, and the great part about one-on-one training like this is that the training intensity is based on what you can do. We evaluate where you are and formulate the workout based on your individual fitness level, and it’s a method proven safe for all ages. As for those with pre-existing injuries, the wide variety of exercises allow us to always be able to find a way to help work around and rehabilitate almost any injury. Over the past 27 years we have worked with just about every injury possible and we are always able to tailor the high intensity workouts accordingly.

WHAT IS THE DIET LIKE?

Our dietary guides are designed specifically for you and your goals. Whether you are an omnivore, vegan, vegetarian or something in between, we will create an eatign plan to make sure you get the most out of your workouts!
