Cory's After Photos (Nov 3, 2017)

 

When Cory Miller approached me back in August 2017 he was committed to making a change. He was tired of being overweight, out of shape and lethargic. At 5’ 8” and 249 pounds he felt tired most days and didn’t feel healthy at all. He wanted to feel healthy again. He wanted to feel strong again. He wanted to find more energy and to be fit again. He knew that he needed a change but just didn’t know where to begin. He was dead set on being healthier and more muscular but needed a plan, some direction on how to proceed.

That’s when he contacted me.

After a few email conversations I knew immediately that he was committed – He was “all in”. Due to his busy job and family life he decided that in order to maximize his time he needed to workout from home. He invested in a home gym and all the necessary barbells, dumbbells and other equipment needed to achieve his dream of being healthy, fit and muscular.

My strategy for Cory was based on my philosophy of using staged progression. That is, I developed a phased program for Cory based on his current physical activity, age, gender, goals, work (and family schedule) and available equipment. In my estimation, Cory needed about 2 or 3 phases to get down to his goal bodyweight (170 – 175 pounds) and another 2 phases to reach an impressive level of muscularity (back up to about 185 solid and muscular pounds). So I developed a program based on the following phases:

Phase 1: Weeks 1 to 4

Training: 3 day program based on using full body workouts to help “reprogram” his body to get used to the new movements. I assigned 3 different full body workouts as such:

Monday: Full body workout A

Wednesday: Full body workout B

Friday: Full body workout C

Each workout is different and uses one compound movement per muscle group. I added some basic cardio for Cory to follow to help prime his body for fat loss. The real key here was to establish a baseline repetition model that allowed his body to keep working at modest levels for the first 3 weeks without "shocking" his nervous system. This is very important. I wanted to keep his body adapting to each workout without going overboard and overtaxing his nervous system. This is very important for folks over 40.

I monitored his peformance very closely and based on his weekly results I adjusted his repetitions, sets and weight to make sure each of Cory’s workouts were always progressing and moving forward.

Diet: His phase 1 nutrition program was designed around a reduced calorie diet using a balanced diet protocol (40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fat). I reduced his sodium intake to less than 2.5 grams in order to help rid his body of toxins and water bloating.

Cory aggressively followed this program and the results were very dramatic.

Phase 2: Weeks 5 to 9

Training: 5 day program based on using full body workouts and increasing his overall muscular capacity and improving his cardio in order to stimulate even more fat loss. I assigned the following programs:

Monday: Full body workout A

Tuesday: Cardio and ab workout

Wednesday: Full body workout B

Thursday: Cardio and ab workout

Friday: Full body workout C

I added additional exercises for Cory to follow and assigned two additional cardio (and ab) workouts in order to stimulate even more fat loss.

With each passing week I added different methods and techniques for Cory to follow which allowed him to challenge his body even more for added fat loss and strength gain. The main purpose of this phase was to increase Cory’s muscular capacity in order to enhance fat loss as well as increasing bottom line strength levels. In the first phase I introduced a baseline repetition scheme which allowed his body to adapt. It was now time to increase the repetitions (and intensity) in order to improve his bottom line muscular capacity.

I have to admit, Cory attacked this program like a man possessed. He took on each of my workout challenges and surpassed every one of them!

His strength has skyrocketed! Here are his strength increases so far:

Cory has gained an extremely amount of strength over the course of just over two months. In terms of overall weight lifted, Cory has gone from 1,956 pounds (as of September 6, 2017) to 14,580 pounds (as of November 1, 2017) lifted. Please remember this includes the sum of all weight lifted. See the chart below:

Strength increase over 2 months

This shows a truly outstanding level of strength improvement of the course of two months.

Diet: I made the following adjustments to Cory’s nutritional program as follows:

  • Reduced his bottom line calorie intake by 500 calories
  • Reduced his sodium intake to under 1.5 grams per day
  • Increased his protein intake by roughly 40 grams per day
  • Reduced his intake of starchy carbohydrates and reduced overall carb intake by 50 grams
  • Reduced all sugar intake

The increased oxygen uptake in Cory's training program (plus his improved muscular capacity) allowed a super cohesive relationship with his new diet. By reducing his sodium intake to under 1.5 grams per we were able to keep is water retetion to a minimum. In other words, he was able to concentrate solely on burning fat (and bodyweight) and not worry about his water weight fluctuations.

The new demands placed on Cory from his new weight training program were consistently getting more intense. In order to ensure he kept gaining strength and additional muscular capacity I increased his overall protein consumption. Additionally, I wanted to make sure his body was using more oxygen for his cardio and higher than normal repetitions so I reduced his starchy carbohydrates so his body started using fat for energy (oxygen). The net result was an increase in his fat burning capabilities and strength levels.

In terms of supplements, Cory is only using a protein powder. His entire nutritional program is built around consuming healthy and whole foods. This is going to change for his next phase because I’m going to introduce supplements that will help him boost additional strength and muscle gains (all natural supplements).

The great thing about his custom nutrition plan is I only use his favorite foods so he doesn’t have to “choke” down foods he doesn’t like.

Net Results So Far

  • 43 pound weight loss
  • 4 inch loss from his waist
  • 2 inch loss from his neck
  • 3 inch loss off of his hip
  • 45% increase in overall strength

Cory has not only lost a lot of body weight but he also gained a huge amount of STRENGTH!

We are only nearing the end of his second phase and the third phase will be a more advanced program designed to strip off the remaining body weight and fat in order to get down to his goal weight of 170 pounds. I will be introducing an entirely new weight training (and cardio program) in addition to a more advanced nutrition program. Here's where the magic of this program happens. Once Cory reaches his goal weight his body will be like a sponge. I'm going to create a new program that takes advantage of this situation and create a true growth environment. His new program will allow his body to "soak" up additional nutrients in order to grow more muscle while keeping his fat levels to a minimum. His new program will allow him to get stronger than he's ever been while adding 5 to 10 pounds of pure muscle mass.

By next spring he will unveil and entirely different body. He's going to look younger, fitter, healthier and much more muscular!

Here’s what Cory has to say about his change and what my personal training program has done for him:

First of all I would like to thank Building Muscle 101 for a life changing experience. I’m like everyone else when it comes to scams. Most programs I came across are a joke and are only in it for the money. I came across Building Muscle 101 web page and read all that it had to offer. At that point I decided to fill out the information and submit it. By the next morning I had a reply back from Blake.

I made a commitment to Blake that I was ready for a change and a change he gave me. I’m blessed to have met Blake. I didn’t mention to anyone I was make a change or dieting. My own mother asked me if I was feeling okay. She could see my body changing and changing for the good. Building Muscle 101 has given me the tools, direction, and motivation to succeed at what matter the most, Good Health!

My wife has been calling me a pencil neck. Yeah, I think the cat is out of the bag that I'm trying to lose weight. I can't fool anyone by saying, “I just bought bigger clothes” LOL... This change feels great, and I don't know how I let myself get that far out of shape. This morning I weigh in at 205.7 lbs. Now achieving my goal doesn't look so hard.

Most of all Thank You Blake, for helping me meet my goals. You are truly dedicated to helping others, Amen.

Sincerely,

Cory Miller"
