Maintaining Your Weight is a Full-Time Job


Hey Guys,

I haven’t been on here in a little while, but that’s the way it is with a new baby in the house. In recent weeks I have been taking off to spend time with our new baby boy. When I went back to the gym, I got a lot of questions about how I maintained my weight and size.

I was weighing a good 210-214 lbs and holding it pretty good. Well, what I did was up my protein, carbs, and calories. I would eat about 8-10 meals a day. As you can see that was a second job for me, but out of those meals I had about 3 – 5 protein shakes.

While my boy sleeps now, I’ll usually pre-make my meals. In doing this, it has helped me bounce back to the weight that I want to be at. Even in the middle of the night, when he wakes up, I make a shake.
I always stay on the NytroWhey. The reason behind that was because that is a clean isolate protein. I would put the carbs in my solid meals, keeping my diet balanced out. There’s a new NytroWhey out—NytroWhey Ultra Elite—and I’m looking forward to trying that as well.

The one thing that I am also doing is taking my aminos and vitamins. I always take my Aminodrol which has everything I need and sometimes I’ll take a Fusion Force for a pre-workout.

I know a lot of people that are afraid of taking 1 or 2 weeks off, but from my experience your body needs that. You need the rest, and it’s a good opportunity to do different things. Then when you go back, you can promote better growth. You may get weak, but remember your muscle has memory. I know when I got back to the gym the first week, yeah its tough, but I made it through and then next week was better. My workouts have become more intense and the soreness is back. So that’s how I know the muscle growth begins!

Another thing I would like to discuss is taking a break when you feel like you are getting sick, since its going to be the season for that. When you feel that you are getting sick, take the day off. If you don’t you may lower your immune system and the chances of getting sicker are higher, so its ok;. In fact, it’s better for you! I’ve heard guys sneezing in there and people with colds, so do yourself a favor and rest that way you don’t miss any more days than you want to.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Less talkin’, more liftin’
