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!

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

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.
