How I Got Down To 8.3% Bodyfat WITHOUT Cardio

I used to do hours of cardio. The 1 hour runs. The 7-day weeks. But I never got my body fat down to 8.3% until I stopped all the cardio training.

Instead of cardio, here’s what actually worked for me:


  • Easy To Do
  • Easy Not To Do
    • These simple disciplines compounded over time equal Positive or Negative results.


  • Rest for no more than 30 seconds in between sets & 45 seconds if you absolutely have to.
  • Don’t let your heart rate slow down to less than 75% of maximum target heart rate.
    • For information on how to find your target heart rate (see below).


  • Drink roughly a half ounce of water per pound of body-weight per day.
  • Do not drink huge amounts of water all in one sitting.
  • Make sure you spread this consumption out over the course of the entire day and remember if you’re eating a healthy diet as much as 20% of your total water consumption can come from the foods you eat.

  • Make sure to plan your meals and snacks ahead of time, otherwise, you’ll end up somewhere without options.
  • Do not under any circumstances go longer than 3 hours without eating.


  • The timing of meals and snacks is key, it’s important to understand your schedule as well as your body.
  • Under no circumstances should your biggest meal of the day be dinner, nor should you eat 2-3 hours before resting.


  • The mind-muscle link is crucial, and I mean it.  Concentrate on the muscle(s) you are working every time you train.  If part of your training includes a brisk walk or jog, YOU should be thinking about your calves, quads, hamstrings, and glutes.  That’s how focused you need to be.
  • High intensity doesn’t mean high reps, it means to keep your pace up and consistent and your mind laser focused. Because this is so effective, I made HIIT MAX™, a training program based on high-intensity interval training and it is super effective!
    • Implement this and you’ll experience results like never before!

  • You should always sweat during your workouts.  If you’re not sweating then your body isn’t changing.
  • If you don’t work up a decent sweat while training then considers it a REST DAY – Period!


  • The more nutrients you can get from actual and natural foods the better.  Do not be afraid to supplement if need be.  Just make sure you know what you’re putting in your body every time.
  • You cannot afford to go even one day without the proper nutrition your body requires to work and change.


  • One full day of rest is plenty unless of course you have injured yourself or are sickly.  This is especially important to follow initially as you form your exercise habits.
  • DO NOT take consecutive days off, it’s just not necessary.
    • Did you know it takes 30 solid, consistent days to form a single habit?


  • There are plenty of great substitutes for dairy.  You can get your calcium from lots of different sources.
  • Do not consume dairy, it just does not do your body one bit of good.  Don’t take it from me do your own homework!
    • Almond Milk or Coconut Milk are just as tasty and are packed with calcium.


  • Always train with resistance, this could mean; body-weight exercises, movements with dumbbells or resistance bands, and even some plyometrics.
  • I would stay away from machines, they are poor for your range of motion and do not offer the same benefits as other methods.


  • Run a series of short races, it’s not supposed to be one giant marathon.  Pay close attention to your simple daily disciplines; run fast, ferociously, and with extreme focus to each new finish line (goal).
  • Do not set unrealistic goals, but do not set easily achievable goals either.  Challenge yourself ALWAYS!
    • Remember, what gets measured gets improved; time, weight, reps, waist… You catch my drift..!

I wish you amazing success on your journey.

Stay positive, patient and consistent. Remember, by the time you see results, most of the work will have already been done.

4 Things You Should Be Aware Of Before Training While You’re Pregnant

If you’re currently expecting and are still motivated to continue with your resistance training, there are a few important things to keep in mind when training during a pregnancy. While moderate training is recommended during pregnancy; it’s important to keep yourself safe for your baby’s sake.

1. Stay Away From Exercises That Require A Prone Position 

Make sure that you stay away from any movements that require you to be in the prone position.
This includes but is not limited too; superman’s, bent over rows, push-ups, burpees, and planks.

These types of exercises should be avoided because these positions can place excess stress on the stomach and baby.

Any type of exercise that involves lying down on your stomach is definitely one you’ll want to avoid.

2. Monitor Your Body Temperature

It’s important to keep track of your body temperature as well. Stay as cool as possible; you don’t want to let your body overheat as this could put your baby at risk for developmental problems.


Be sure to wear cool, breathable clothing during your workouts.  If possible use fans close by to keep you cooler.  Remember; it’s OK to stop if you feel yourself getting excessively warm.

3. Keep Your Heart Rate Lower

Always make sure to train at a sustainable heart rate; it’s even more important during pregnancy. While your heart rate will rise slightly regardless of the type of exercise you’re doing, don’t let it rise too high too fast.

Now is not the time to work on achieving fitness goals – you’ll want to use your resistance training while you’re pregnant to simply maintain your fitness level.  This will ensure a much easier road post pregnancy.

4. Don’t Perform Exercises That Require High Balancing Effort

Lastly, stay conscious of your pregnancy as well as the workouts you are performing while you’re pregnant. You should avoid doing very complex exercises altogether, especially those that require extreme balance throughout the range of motion.

For example, now just isn’t the time for single leg split squats, single leg deadlifts, or single leg anything for that matter. Remember, the purpose of this training is to maintain not to get ready for a triathlon.

While these are all fantastic movements that can really add another dimension to your routine; as your body weight is climbing and your equilibrium slightly off already, you don’t need to engage in more challenging exercises.  Stay balanced and safe, your baby is counting on you.

These simple little tips will help you stay on track during pregnancy and you will be on your way to staying in shape and maintaining both your health as well as your developing babies. Once your baby comes and you have been cleared by your doctor, then you can go back into your more intensive training programs or even start new ones!
