Personalized Dietary Support
Diet is a key factor in the success of any training program and special care is given to recommendations based on healthy eating and balance as opposed to extreme dietary practices. Not only do we train dancers, one of our trainers, Erika Citrin is also a professional dancer and living proof that you can indeed do more in less time and achieve a stunning physique without resorting to any extreme dietary practices.
The prevailing concept of sports specificity states that the best way to train for any activity is to continuously repeat that activity however as a result most athletes walk a fine line between overtraining and inadequate recovery that ultimately leads a a decrease in performance. Thankfully more and more evidence is proving the contrary and that brief high intensity workouts are superior to prolonged sub-maximal exercise training.
For the past 28 years New York City Personal Trainer Kevin Richardson has used his Naturally Intense High Intensity 10 Minute Workouts™- to help dancers transform their bodies and also increase their strength, speed, explosiveness, power and endurance thus allowing them the luxury of spending less time in the gym and more time in the field mastering their craft.
My back today, no pump and nothing fancy!
They used to call me "Back Man" back in the day and it goes without saying that it`s my strong point.
It`s a muscle group that`s a bit like legs, in that many people don`t put that much emphasis on it as it`s not a Hollywood muscle like chest, shoulders, abs and arms.
It also, like legs, requires a lot of work and a hard back workout can feel like a leg workout as you should be almost on the floor if you did it right.
I train my back and all muscle groups just once a week with Naturally Intense High Intensity training, so we are talking about a workout that can last about 10 minutes.
But it`s 10 minutes of pure and utter hell, and look out for some more videos coming soon from me on back training.
Thanks for tuning in and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

High Intensity Training For Natural Athletes.
For the past thirty plus years I have been training with a system I named Naturally Intense High Intensity Training.
And it helped me go from a 125lb skinny teenager into a successful natural bodybuilder training only THREE TIMES A WEEK with workouts lasting 10, 15 to 20 MINUTES at the most!
It sounds too good to be true but it`s not only the cornerstone of my success but also has helped the hundreds of men and women I have trained with it as well over the past three decades.
Most of the popular high intensity training protocols out there were designed for and popularized by enhanced athletes, and they miss by a large mark some important factors that come into play for those who don`t use drugs.
I hope it can help you as much as it`s helped me and you can see the full video on YouTube by clicking on my bio link- or just look me up there (Kevin Richardson- Naturally Intense)
Thanks for taking the time to look at my work and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

High Intensity Training: Pull Ups & Heavy Dumbbell Rows!
Compound sets are tough!
Going from one exercise to the next for the same muscle group without rest can really tax you!
One of the basic principles of Naturally Intense High Intensity Training is that every workout is different and this is an example of doing just one set going all out.
This was the last exercise for shoulders and back and the pull ups started off easy enough, but started to bite towards the end.
Next it was straight to the 100lb dumbbells for 8 grueling reps of rows.
(I was going to go with the 120lb dumbbells, but @egcitrin in her infinite wisdom suggested that the 100lb ones should be more than enough!)
Still training hard and I hope you are too!!!
Thanks for watching and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

I Still Get Sore Even After 30+ Years of High Intensity Training!
So the answer to the question as to whether or not I still get sore from my training is:
A resounding yes!
I still get really sore, in fact as I am in pain as I write this as there isn`t really a way for my body to adapt to the type of workouts that I do because with Naturally Intense High Intensity Training, every workout is different, so there`s never a point where it gets easy!
Thing is, as bad as it gets, it`s still something I look forward to as it hurts, but in a good way!
And if you`ve ever really pushed it and felt the aftermath a day or two after training, you know exactly what I mean!
So keep training hard, know I believe in you and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Change the Focus: Looking Good Comes From Feeling Good!
Want to know why I train as hard as I do and never miss a workout even though I haven`t stepped on stage in a bodybuilding competition in 19 years?
Want to know how I stay on diet 100% without flinching?
The answer is simple.
I do what I do because it FEELS GOOD.
I couldn`t care less that my body fat percentage is under 10%.
It`s nice, don`t get me wrong, but I don`t eat thinking I need to stay lean.
Nor do I train thinking that I need to be muscular.
I eat the way I eat because I feel good when I eat that way.
I train the way I train because I feel great when I train that way.
And if I could leave you with just one gem of wisdom towards helping you realize your goals, it would be to stop focusing on the result and instead focus on enjoying the process.
As a natural athlete, realizing your potential often takes years. Not months, years.
And so you have to find a path that sets you up for the long game, and one that also makes you FEEL BETTER in the process.
Forget about the six pack, forget about losing weight, forget about building muscle, and instead focus on what you need to do in order to accomplish those goals.
Because if you do, everything in life just gets better!
That`s the "secret" if there ever was one and so focus on the Path, enjoy the Path, know that I believe in you and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense
