Gustavo subscribed to our Total Body Recompostion programme, a 32 week journey. The goal was to bulk and follow it with a cutting phase.
He started out at 75kg and 84cm around his waist. During his progressive bulk (in order to minimize fat gain), we hit a maximum weight of 78,4kgs and his waist measurement dropped down to 82,5cm. After 12 weeks of bulking, Gustavo decided to start cutting. So, we went down to 70kgs and 77,5cm around his waist We are currently ending his cut!
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.
