About Kevin’s Bodybuilding, Figure & Bikini Pre Contest Programs

“I have been involved in bodybuilding in every aspect of bodybuilding competition for the past 32 years, as a successful competitor, judge and coach who has helped over a dozen  men and women win their pro cards. I draw from decades of experience helping others be their very best onstage and my perspective it wasn’t enough to be a successful competitor, as to me this didn’t qualify me to be a bodybuilding/physique/figure or bikini coach. A good coach has to understand every aspect of the sport, and so I took it upon myself not only to compete, but also to judge, promote and even run bodybuilding, bikini, figure and physique contests. All of which gave me invaluable insight as to what judges are really looking for in a contest and experience that has helped me help others realize their dreams of becoming champions. My coaches were some of the best on the planet and the title of “Coach” for me is one I had to earn through years of helping others with their pre-contest diet, posing and prep. I competed successfully in natural bodybuilding contests, and was the first lifetime drug free bodybuilder to have a successful DVD on the market. (You can can get a copy of my bodybuilding DVD here on Amazon). Posing is one of the most important parts of what makes a winner and I was one of the very few bodybuilders with posing was good enough to be called upon along with my good friend, Kai Green, back in the day for numerous guest posing spots and appearances. For us it was never about being good, but rather about being exceptional, a quality that you can see shining through in all of my competitors with their stage presentation.


I was honored with the position of captain of bodybuilding coach legend, Ian Mercer’s team. In that capacity, I worked backstage with Kai Green for almost all his NPC shows and was working with him when he won his pro card. Over the years I have worked with bodybuilding, figure, physique and bikini competitors in the WNBF, INBF & NPC and IFBB at both pro and amateur levels, and watching my competitors standing in the winner’s circle, amazed at seeing just how much they were able to accomplish, has always been far more meaningful to me than any trophy I ever won. Hire with me as your coach and I will work tirelessly to see to it that every aspect of your prep, diet and raining is handled with the greatest of attention. You will always be overwhelmed by the degree of care and professionalism I bring to the table as I know exactly what it’s like to go through a contest prep and I also know exactly how to get you through it! If you are one of our clients in the New York City area, schedule permitting I will also be at your side on the day of the contest helping you prep backstage and will be sitting front row in the audience making sure you are at your very best! Most competitors never have any real documentation of their achievements and so I include a free fitness photography shoot for ALL of my competitors who train with me. I am a published fitness photographer and have worked for several bodybuilding and fitness magazines and you can see my some of my work with fitness, figure, bikini and bodybuilders here.

If you are looking for a quick fix, and extreme measures, then we are not the trainers for you, but if you are serious about putting in the work to create a healthy, contest winning physique that you can keep all year round, then I will be more than happy to have you as one of our future champions!”- Kevin Richardson

Shoulder Day: My Warm Up Set...

Here`s a glimpse of Naturally Intense High Intensity Training in action with my warm up set of dumbbell shoulder presses.

With Naturally Intense High Intensity Training, the first and second sets are used as primers to warm yourself up and also mentally prepare yourself for the onslaught of the final set where you go all out!

For this set I start off with the 80lb dumbbells and employ a bounce at the bottom of the movement to emphasize the negative or eccentric phase of the exercise as well as increase the intensity.

As just because it`s a warm up set doesn`t mean it`s not still intense!

I hope this video helps provide some insight into my style of high intensity training and look for the video of the final all out set of dumbbell presses soon!!! Thanks for watching and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

How I Lost 43lbs in 12 Weeks (And Why You Shouldn`t!)

In this video I go over the story of my coming to America and bulking up from 198.5 lbs to my heaviest ever at 252lbs and cutting down for my first major natural bodybuilding competition to 209lbs in 12 weeks!

That`s right!

I lost 43lbs in 12 weeks!

And that might sound like an achievement given the fact that I won my class but is was perhaps on the of the worst things I ever did diet wise.

In fact, I would say that my entire career became about finding a way to get into contest shape without resorting to extremes, as my sense was that natural bodybuilding should always be about health and balance.

Which ultimately became my path to find a way to stay in shape all year round without ever having to resort to any extremes, and most importantly, getting my clients into shape without any extremes as well!

Backstage at the 1997 Riverbank State Park Bodybuilding Classic.

I was 24 years old and did this show as a warm up for the NGA Hercules.

I was nowhere near the type of shape that I would be just a few weeks later (look out for a video on my first contest`s trials and tribulations coming out soon) and it`s nice to look back at times and see how far I have come.

Thanks for looking and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

High Intensity Pull-Ups With Isometric Holds!

One way to make pull-ups even more intense (as if they needed to be) is to employ isometrics!

Each workout we do is different and for this one I decided to do a 20 second hold at the start, pulling my chest to the bar as hard as I could while holding in the top position, and then blast up and down for 8 grueling reps!

Give it a try next time you train your back!!!

Still training and hope you are too!

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?"


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.
