DO YOU FEEL LOST WHEN LOOKING ONLINE FOR REAL BODYBUILDING INFORMATION?
I get it. It's not difficult to see why you might feel that way.
Everywhere you look there's garbage and more garbage!
You either have some guy who is obviously on boatloads of drugs and growth hormone who is solely marketing himself off his appearance and not what he can do to educate people in a way they can relate to.
You have some out of shape hater who has nothing better to do than talk trash about the ones who are actually in shape!!
But where is the real information now?
I want to see the real information that people can take and put to use throughout the entire year!!
I want to see more information that yields a body that somebody could be proud to show off at any time.
I had this nagging feeling that there was some missing link in the bodybuilding community...
Everywhere you look now there is someone posting a program and a diet but it's a one size-fits all routine.
Well that wasn't good enough for me.
I wanted to connect the dots and show the down and dirty.
I felt like there was missing information that was rarely mentioned.
I don't know about you but when I got into this game of bodybuilding 20 years ago I just wanted to look good with my shirt off!!
I wanted to feel good and be proud of what I was accomplishing.
I wanted to be that guy whose physique demanded respect.
I wanted to have the self-respect and self-discipline to put forth the hard work required to accomplish those things!!
Do you want to know the biggest differences between most of what you read elsewhere and myself?
I'm a married, adult man.
I have kids.
I have a regular job.
I have a house mortgage and the same responsibilities as most other men.
I'm not some young buck who has all of the time in the world to focus strictly on bodybuilding.
There is far more to life than just that!!
When I go grocery shopping I shop for my family's groceries first, and then what's left over is what I get for my set of groceries. If it isn't much then I make due, but family first!!
If I miss a meal because I have to rush my son to the emergency room then I miss a meal.
If I have to throw in a cheat meal in order to do a family function then I time my cheat meals around the family functions.
If one cheat meal a week is going to stop your progress, then my friend, you just don't have it in you to begin with!!
I don't live like a cave dweller for bodybuilding and I don't let this stuff break me down to the point I'm half crippled.
Heavy training, light training, periodization, time off, there is a place for all of that!!
One of the things I always try to remember is different points I was at in my life and how bodybuilding tied into these highs and lows.
I try to relate to someone who is brand new at this or someone who is ready for the next level.
I've posted a ton of free articles on my blog at johndoebodybuilding.com in the past few years but I felt there was only so much I could bring to you with articles.
Readers are still left with the task of searching through years of posts and having to piece together bits and pieces of articles and put them into practice.
The more I thought about things the more I thought; what if I created a resource that gave the reader an inside look at how I do things and modify things throughout the year?
Low carbs or high carbs? They both work, it just depends on the approach!! Most people won't tell you this though, they're advocates of strictly one or the other. But what about knowing when to switch from one to the other?
What if there was information available that would guide you throughout ALL PHASES OF DIETING AND TRAINING?
How many books or articles talk about things such as reverse dieting during times, ways to create states of anabolism while cutting fat at the same time, or timing nutrients and anabolic tactics strictly around workout times to gain the most from your workouts?
What if there was a resource available that talked about ways to take 2 steps backwards in order to take a giant leap forward, all while maintaining the best health possible?
The search is over! I'm excited to introduce to you...
