Francisco started working with us in a Total Body Recomposition programme, wanting to gain muscle and posteriorly lose some body fat to have a more aesthetic appearance.
Starting out at 81,1kgs and a waist measurement of 82,5cm and even though we were bulking and consequently increasing his caloric intake, having reached: 180g Protein; 445g Carbohydrate and 70g Fat, Francisco continuously lost weight and his measurements dropped. While cutting, he reached 69,5kg and a waist measurement of 70cm. We have to mention that not everyone has the luxury of having Gustavo’s metabolism and this sorte of approach isn’t viable for all. Currently we are working our way up to another bulk, through a Reverse Dieting phase.
Just like most of our clients who take their physique’s seriously, Gustavo was able to go on holiday for several weeks without compromising his progress.
We remind you that throughout the whole of this process, Gustavo didn’t do a single cardio session. We resourced only to adequate nutrition and consistent weight training sessions.
In our Team, just like we did with Gustavo, we don’t prescribe long, useless cardio sessions, that only serve the purpose of chipping away at our mind and/or physique. They end up making the whole process inconsistent and impossible to tolerate and maintain for an extended period. In our coaching programmes, both caloric deficits and cardio are balanced so that if we have reached a point where it isn’t viable to go any lower in terms of our clients’ caloric intake, we are able to implement some high intensity cardio sessions to further extend the deficit. This way our clients don’t have to experience hunger, nor do they have to train as if they were going to compete in a marathon.
