Hey Cutty!!

This is the first year that i decided to hire some help. Although i know how to get in to contest shape, I've never had a highly productive off season. So last December i hired a local guy named Sean Maloney. He used to compete back in the 90's and was also a gladiator. We met in 2009 and his personality fits me well.

So we are working together now in my off season and getting to learn my body so that when i start my prep in Aug we can both have a decent understanding of my body. He's never worked with a bodytype like mine so this is a learning experience for us both, lol.

Quick story about my trainer: When we had our first meeting to discuss how we will approach my off season, i told him "I'm carb sensitive." He replied "Well most poeple just don't know how to approach carbs and then end up saying that but that's very rarely the case."

Well, we have been working together for almost 5 months now and he has yet to take my carb intake about 270gms per day. lol, I'm still growing and he can't figure it out. He eventually just accepted that he is working with someone who is truly carb sensitive. lol

But thats why we mesh well, because instead of sticking me on some 500gms of carbs typical off season diet, he was willing to accept the fact that his intial assumption was not accurate and that he needed to create an approach that would be tailored to that.

Sorry for the long reply...

I have a couple basic questions. Why did you start your journey, and how has your training evolved.

Wut up Elite!

Don't laugh, but i started this journey because i want abs! lol. I remember it to this date. I was posing around the house with my shirt off and i told my wife "I'm going to get a six pack" She said "I don't kno Mek (My nickname) some people are just not meant to have abs" I took it as a challenge. lol, So ibegin buying all these magazines and reading and researching and then eventually i found out that i was bodybuilding but i simply just trying to get abs.

What also played a factor into me starting this journey is that after i graduated from college and there were no more football games i felt a competitive void. I like competing and i have competed in some type of sport year round for as long as i can remember and the thought of not competing was saddening so that is another factor that helped me find bbing.

As for my training, it has evolved TREMENDOUSLY. lol, i was an over worker training 7 days a week doing 2 or 3 bodyparts a day and a ton of different reps and sets. Crazy hard cardio, 1 hour HIIT on the stairs, Elliptcal for days, etc. My training was all over the place. lol

Now, my training is more grown up. lol, i train more organized with more aim focus. Now i do about 4 exercises per workout about 4 sets each and 8-15 reps each set, some of which include dropsets and supersets. Sticking mainly to basic and compound movements, nothing new or fancy. Cardio is tread on incline speed of 2 - 2.5 for 30mins. And my body has responded greatly to this more controlled training.

One thing that has remained completely consistent my my effort. Giveing my best effort is something that i was taught in football and it has carried over to bodybuilding.

I'm sure praying so

I knew i needed someone who can sit down with me face to face and hit the gym with me every now and then. Needed someone that doesn't have that "Guru" mindset and can encourage me. I was blessed to be able to reach out to this guy for help.
