Body Transformation: Andrew Clark's Personal Philosophy
The body is a machine. I believe dieting is a science. My friend and I created our own excel diet program. The only way to guarantee results is to monitor your intake honestly. Eat exactly to a plan! Let your mind decide well ahead of your meal times what you will eat.
If you let your mind be in control and have a dream, you can secure your motivation, making you unstoppable. Don't let your stomach make any decisions; you know what it's going to say. Nutrition is everything for cutting. Read the article linked from my BodySpace page by Layne Norton for a brilliant diet strategy.
It's all about how the muscle feels. I am new to serious muscle gain, so go ask Arnold for muscle-building advice. But for what it is worth, I like the response given by Muhammad Ali: "How many sit ups do you do?" Ali's answer: "Don't know - I only start counting when it starts hurting ..."
My favorite lift is the deadlift. I usually do a five or six-day split. I lift by the mantra, 'I would rather over eat and over train, than under eat and under train.' I think I would live at the gym
if they let me.
I think supplementation is often a benefit just due to the synergistic fact that you get excited and mentally increase your effort in the gym and on your diet.
I spend way too much on supplements, but I like them. So I don't care what people have to say. I like the older Gaspari products, not so much the newer stuff. I think the core parts to supplementation are protein, creatine monohydrate cycled, BCAA's, multivitamin and pre workouts.
