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.
Why Are Pull Ups So Hard For Some But Not For Others?
Pull ups are an exercise people love to hate!
They love to hate it because in my experience, most untrained men or women can`t do one pull up and those who train can often struggle to do 6 or 10.
Because pull ups are hard!
And yet people like myself can easily do as many as 20-25!
So what`s the reason for this discrepancy?
Is there some secret that allows me and others to do pullups so easily?
There isn`t, and in this video I go over exactly why I can do as many as I can and why it can be so much harder for others.
I also go over my #1 pull up variant that ANYONE can do, even if you can`t do one pull up.
And yet it can build strength and muscle size in some cases even more so than regular pull ups!

Maximize Biceps Growth With High Intensity Arm Blaster Hammer Curls!
50lb Dumbbells For 20 reps!
The Arm Blaster is a fantastic piece of equipment for a home gym or any gym!
It doesn`t take up much space and allows you to add variety to your biceps training.
It locks your elbows in place, thus increasing training intensity, and by doing a hammer curl, you can use more weight (thus increasing intensity even more) and target your brachialis muscles which help add density to your biceps!
This was my last set and I couldn`t go any heavier as I am still nursing a wrist injury, but the 50lbers were more than enough to do the job!
Try them out next time you train arms and let me know how it goes!!!
Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Injury-Proof Your Training: The Power of Workout Variation!
One of the main reasons why I can still train heavy and intensely at 49 after 35 years of nonstop training without any training related overuse injuries is the fact that I vary EVERY workout!
Overuse injuries come from doing the same movements over and over and by always changing your routine, you radically lessen the likelihood of chronic injury.
Squats, deadlifts, barbell curls and bench presses are great exercises, but if you do them all the time, you do increase the odds of getting injured.
And as a natural athlete, it bears mentioning that it takes years to realize your full potential, and so it`s crucial to have a training program that is sustainable, and one that will allow you to train injury free for as long as I have or longer!
Thanks so much for tuning in and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

This Is What 35 Years of Natural Bodybuilding Looks Like!
So as you know, As you may know I recently turned 49 and every year I do a photoshoot to show my progression.
In the hopes of showing that you can not only maintain a level of excellence as the years go by, but that you can do it without steroids, TRT, drugs or even pre-workouts and protein shakes!
(I’ve never had a pre-workout or energy drink and haven’t had a protein shake in decades!)
You don`t need it as all it does make you forget tht excellence doesn’t require anything outside of yourself.
You already have all the tools you need!
Not a huge fan of taking photos of myself, (I much prefer being behind the camera) but I humbly try to be one example of just how much you can achieve with proper training and an uncompromisingly proper diet!
So here I am again at 49 and I am looking forward to seeing what you accomplish over the years as well!!! Thanks so much for tuning in and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense
