When I was a kid, natural bodybuilding was the only path that I could see to help me look like the very superheroes that inspired me as a child. Using drugs didn’t fit the spiritual path that I wanted to follow and it forced me to work even harder at mastering the principles of high intensity exercise and nutrition. Hard work that made me the success I am today. My thanks to each and everyone who helped me in any small way realize my dream. And a special thanks to my fans and clients who constantly inspire me to keep on reaching for excellence.

What`s The Best Rep Range For Building Muscle As A Natural Bodybuilder?

Is it high reps?

Low reps?

Moderate reps?

In this video I am sharing my three decades of experience as someone who was able to go from 125lbs to a successful natural bodybuilding champion using high intensity workouts that last just 10-20 minutes, three times a week.

I go over just how you should approach rep ranges in terms of building muscle, but it`s not just my experience, but also the experience of the hundreds of men and women I have trained over the past 33 years!

Hopefully it helps you on your path and you can see the full video by clicking on my bio link or you can find it on my YouTube Channel: Kevin Richardson Naturally Intense!

Thanks as always for taking the time to look at my work and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

80lb Dumbbell Presses with 20 Second Isometric Hold!

With Naturally Intense High Intensity Training there is no progressive overload, just consistent overload!

This is my final set after warming up with the same 80lb dumbbells (check out my last reel) and then the idea is to do everything possible to make the last set as intense and as unique as possible.

I could have gone heavier but instead chose to stay with the same weight and hold in the bottom stretch position for a count of 20.

That isometric hold completely pre-exhausts the deltoids and the 6 reps that follow are pure agony as your shoulders are already on fire!

Give this a try next time you do shoulders as it`s a good way to not have to go super super heavy while still really working the muscle!

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

Better Results From LESS Activity?

Here`s a question for you:

Before the pandemic, I had a hectic schedule, running back and forth the gym to train clients and at the time I had a consistent activity level of about 12,000 to 10,000 steps per day.

But the lockdown happened and I started training at home and training clients online and as such my activity level plummeted from 12,000-10,000 steps a day to just about 2,500 to 3,000 steps.

Major difference!

And since I train with high intensity workouts that total just about an hour a week, one might expect that given the fact that my diet stayed exactly the same that I would gain weight (as my diet did stay the same).

But what actually happened, and what happened over the years with my clients may surprise you!

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!
