At some point we all come to this tranquil place... In fact, I'm sort of sitting here right now. Content with what I see in the mirror, I don't have a specific goal when it comes to my body and wanting to change much of what I see. It's a point of great pride, a final layer of accomplishment. But even though I've gotten to the point of simply maintaining where I am, it doesn't mean I can slack off in any of the work I put into t...
Our December 2015 Q and A session was filled with a ton of great questions ranging from fasted cardio, supplements, difference between lean build/bulking/reverse dieting, and fat loss training and nutrition strategies.
I’m really excited to kick off today’s blog post with an big introduction to my eBook! It’s always been a passion of mine to help and to serve others by sharing my knowledge of nutrition and training, and what REALLY gets results.

It's Friday night. You're texting your friends. You're on social media finding out who's doing what and where. You get asked "Wanna go out?" For most people, they immediately think "Yes!

A number of my competitor clients are currently off season, and as I always say, your pre-contest season is actually formed during your off season. It’s where you set the stage (no pun intended lol), for how well you will do, and how much your body will evolve between one season to the next. One of the quickest and best techniques that I use to
Today’s discussion is all about the importance of taking a break from training - also known as a deload. I think we all get so caught up in the process of either building, or cutting, that wee often forget (or even further, some don’t realize) that it’s not our efforts in the gym alone that’s responsible for growth; but instead, it’s all about the time you take to recover in between training that progress is seen.

OK, let’s dig into the nitty gritty of lean building! I like to approach lean building much like I approach fat loss - with a well drafted and goal specific plan in place. One thing I want to set straight is that within the RoxStar culture, we don’t call lean building bulking.
