Training a Future UFC Champion

tim boetsch 300x187 Training a Future UFC ChampionI hope everyone tuned into Spike TV to see my client Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch manhandle Kendall “Da Sypder” Grove!  This was a big win for The Barbarian with his Middleweight Debut. The fans were impressed with Tim’s new figure at 185lbs (including  UFC President Dana White).  We worked incredibly hard implementing different nutrition and supplementation to get The Barbarian to a powerhouse at middleweight.  We used a ton of ProSource supplements to get the Barbarian to look the way he did.  We always want to thank all of our fans for the support and will promise to keep working hard to make a real run at the title.  Many of my new ProSource followers were asking how I got acquainted with UFC fighter Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch.  How do a bodybuilder and UFC fighter train together and be beneficial for one another with their methodologies and styles with training/dieting?  This blog entry is going to be dedicated to the dynamic synergy which makes Tim and I a nasty and unique force.

Ryan’s Nutrition and Dieting 101

I think one of the most challenging things to do is understand nutrition and dieting.  There is so much information relative to nutrition floating around out there and it always seems to frustrate every one of us.  I would be a liar if I said I know everything there is to know about this topic. Nutrition is something I am always fascinated to learn more about and is what keeps me intuitively eager as a professional to learn more and more.  I am mystified each time I compete because I learn something new every show I prep for.  Every client I work with that is interested in nutrition consulting also makes me learn something new each time as well.  As I said before, every one of us is so different and figuring out the best plan that suites each of us is the challenge of it all.  I do think that there is a perfect diet and lifestyle for everyone of us out there that we can look our best and also enjoy life too.

Mid Morning Snack Recipes for Growth or Cutting

shutterstock 7912117 Mid Morning Snack Recipes for Growth or CuttingProSource.net fans,

Last blog I talked about breakfast meals and how to mix and match them. This time around we’re going to talk about the importance of the meals between breakfast and lunch. It’s important to feed our bodies with “snacks” considered as a meal. In doing so, it gives the body extra energy and the protein/carbs our body needs to function throughout the day.

This also helps us put size on and or can help lean the body down. Of course there are different meals to eat that will help with what you are looking for, but it is important to have a snack. Eating every 2 hrs is what I do, and you should absolutely give it a shot. Or you can do every 3 hrs. This has many effects on the body. One, it speeds up your metabolism, helping with cutting body fat and building muscle. I get asked all the time … what should I do to help lose weight or gain weight? Well, this is part of the answer. Mix up the meals that way you keep it fresh too. Hope this helps, fans!

Here are some snack ideas to give you some variety:

If you are Cutting, try this snack:
Can of tuna (in water) with Vinegar
