I keep looking at the 40kg dumbbells for dB bench press. I'm now on the 30s. Reduce waist size to maybe 30"

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Ever get that feeling where youโ€™re trying all and everything but nothing seems to click?
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
This is a similar place to where Andy was before we came to work with me.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
No stranger to the gym he had reached a point where he thought he mustnโ€™t be able to do anymore.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The age card gets blamed or itโ€™s something to do with the slowing down of the metabolism.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Heโ€™d tried numerous attempts at different training protocols, strength-based training, GVT, supersets, drop sets. You name it, it had been done.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
But still couldnโ€™t bust through this plateau.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The same can be said for his nutrition. Typically โ€œeating cleanโ€ but still not able to shift the excess body fat. If anything it had been getting worse.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Andy has a super busy job as a builder he is up and about on his feet all day. Something that we had to take into consideration when planning his food.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Instead of switching up the training all the time we introduced a structured approach that would fit into his lifestyle.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
That coupled with a tailored approach to his nutrition where we tweaked what he was already doing and adjusted the amounts to get the fat shifted a little faster, whilst maintaining his muscle mass.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Of course, this was hard work especially at the beginning but once we shifted off nearly 5kg of fat, Andy could start to see it was working. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Fast forward to now and Andy is eating more food and as you can see from the images is gaining in all the right places.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
In actual fact, heโ€™s not too far off his original start weight. I canโ€™t wait to see the images together when we get there. He's also creeping ever closer to the elusive 40kg dumbbells, although he now knows that the load isn't everything.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Are you in a similar place to Andy? Stuck trying everything but just canโ€™t get it to work?
