The perfect "real world" example is Stuart MacDonald (Pictured Right) and the body transformation that he achieved in "I Want to Look Like That Guy." Stuart went from a pudgy 44 inch waist to a shredded 27 inches in 6 months time. Stuart only trained abs directly 1 time a week. His strict attention to diet and consistent cardio is what made the magic happen. (You can learn the exact nutrition plan Stuart followed in my newest release "Secrets Behind I Want to Look Like That Guy.")
The next time you are tempted to add yet another day of curnches to your routine or buy the latest ab crunch gizmo remember once again the physiological fact that you can not spot reduce fat!
The more you want to achieve a great six pack, the more you need to focus on diet and cardio!

Several supplements are listed by their product name with no real description. Also some of the products have since been discontinued so I thought a simple supplement key would help clear up any confusion and help you maximize the information provided in the video.
"Secrets" Supplement Key:
Ny-Tro PRO-40 = Meal Replacement (Discontinued)
Creatine HSC = Glucose Crystals (DGC) with Micronized Creatine and Taurine. (Discontinued, however, Micronized Creatine and the DGC Crystals are still sold separately.)
VP2 = Whey Protein Isolate (Still Available)
GL3 = L-Glutamine, Amino Acid (Still Available)
Myo-D = Omega-3 EPA-Amino Hybrid (Still Available)
For detailed information on each product check out the AST Sports Science web site.

Let's clear up some FAQ about cardio!
1. DO NOT perform cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach! This is a great way to encourage muscle wasting. As soon as you wake up you should have whey protein isolate and a carbohydrate source (my favorite combo is VP2 Whey Isolate by AST Sports Science with breakfast cereal as you can see in my "Lost Logs" e-book. After you have supplied the critical nutrition upon waking you can then attack Max-OT cardio and achieve great results!
2. Keep cardio short and intense. 16 to 20 minutes of high intensity cardio will have a greater effect on elevating your metabolism and will keep your metabolism elevated longer after exercise than long duration moderate intensity cardio.
3. Work out of your comfort zone the entire session. You should be "huffing and puffing" throughout.
4. Set distance goals and try to beat them every session. Working to beat your distance goals will give you a tangible marker of intensity to strive for rather than simply putting in your time.
5. Frequency. If fat loss is a high priority I recommend cardio 5-7 days a week. Remember every cardio session you do will give your metabolism a jolt and fire up the fat burning process!

"....You can’t expect results to happen overnight but what you do today will definitely affect tomorrow and you can shorten the process by how intelligently you approach your training and nutrition. That is why you need to equip yourself with information and proven strategies. Then you need to execute those strategies consistently over a span of time. Don’t get me wrong, you still have to put in your time but the smarter you go about things, the faster your results will come.
There are times when I speak with people and they want me to tell them exactly how long it will take before they see results. I always feel like telling them, “Let me dust off my crystal ball and I’ll let you know”, but I bite my tongue and try to explain that is impossible for me to speculate because there are way too many variables to consider. I have no idea how intense this person is training, how well they are eating, or what supplement program they are following, not to mention their genetic propensity to build muscle. So unless I am a fortune teller, there is no way I can say.
I try to explain that the better you approach all aspects of your training, the better and faster your results will be. I don’t want to throw out some mythical number that you should reach in four weeks because if you don’t hit that number you will be discouraged for no reason or I might limit you with the number I say and you may have been able to blow right past it.
I don’t think trying to figure out how much you can gain in the first four weeks of training is the best way to start. Instead, work hard each day and see how far you can go.
You need to set your goals and work towards them daily. Keep in mind the bigger picture and the end results you want but realize that you get to that point by what you do on a daily basis, even if you can’t always see it. Just because you’re not at your destination tomorrow, doesn’t mean you won’t get there as long as you keep moving in that direction...."

“I am happy to inform you that your film has been chosen to screen at the Arnold Sports Film Festival!
Your film will screen in one of several screenings throughout the weekend of March 4, 5, 6. The first screenings will begin Friday afternoon and continue through Sunday afternoon's awards ceremony, where Mr. Schwarzenegger will be on-hand."
I want to take this opportunity to extend a "thank you" to all who have supported our efforts by purchasing a copy of "I Want to Look Like That Guy". We are thrilled to be included in this event and excited about the doors this could open for our film!

Nutrient Density Maximized - A quality meal replacement typically maximizes nutrient density better than a whole food meal. This keeps protein and nutrients high with total calories low.
Convenience - Shaking up a meal replacement can happen pretty much anywhere and any time. It is not always as easy to break open the Tupperware and start eating your chicken and green beans. Meal replacements over the years have helped me stay 100% on track with my plan in a variety of situations.
Easy to Measure - Meal replacements make it very easy to measure your intake and consequently make adjustments to your diet as you skim away calories. Measuring the cuts with supplements is very easy and accurate.
This is not to say you can't construct an effective nutrition plan with the use of more whole food. This is simply my preference and the reasons why.

This is the inaugural year for the Arnold Sports Film Festival which is run in conjunction withe the Arnold Classic weekend in Columbus, Ohio.
We entered our documentary, I Want To Look Like That Guy, and I am happy to announce that we have made it to the second round of judging. This means we have a chance for our film to be one of the select few out of thousands of entrants to be part of an official screening during the Arnold Classic weekend.
The official announcement will be made later this month but either way we are honored to make it this far in the process considering the high level of competition we are against.
Muscle soreness or lack there of is not an indicator of the success of your workout. Remember the goal of each weight training workout is to overload the muscle with a heavy weight (Max-OT style) and therefore initiate the best muscle growth response.
You have probably found there are certain muscle groups that always get a little sore and some muscle groups that never do. I think this is normal based on my own experience and the feedback from many others. I wouldn't put much stock into it one way or the other.
As you go forward with your workouts I would suggest not placing emphasis on your degree of muscle soreness and certainly don't use it to gauge the success of your workout.
