Week 2 of reverse dieting: a good week! Only up 0.2 lbs (average weigh in per week: last week vs this week) with lots of gains in strength and overall well-being.
Week 3 starts today! 😎 #legendsofaesthetics #teamlegends #oguscake

This was the picture that solidified it for me, and probably thousands of others who watch my YouTube or follow me… Getting lean or even shredded was just a byproduct of fat loss, fat loss which we controlled by tracking and manipulating my daily macronutrient intake. There weren’t special foods that I did or didn’t eat, there weren’t special supplements that I took, and I didn’t train in some wacky and wild way to magically burn the fat. It was just a caloric deficit - created and maintained by manipulating macros and adding in cardio… Threw in with weekly controlled refeeds :) Shouts to Coach Eric Helms and 3DMJ for showing me the way!
If you’re looking for a coach to help you reach your physique goals - I recommend you go with one who will also teach you the path to nutritional enlightenment and not just dish out to you something like:
RJ’s 100% Customized MEAL PLAN:
MEAL 1: 1 cup of oats, 2 eggs, 300g egg white
MEAL 2: 6 oz tilapia, 1 cup brown rice, 1 cup green beans
MEAL 3: 5.5 oz chicken, 1 ½ cup brown rice, 1 cup broccoli
MEAL 4: 50 g Protein Shake (post workout meal) and 25g of Dextrose within 15 minutes of finishing your workout
MEAL 5: 5 oz chicken, ½ cup gown rice, 1 cup asparagus
meal 6: 6 oz chicken, ½ cup broccoli
SRS. In other words - one who works with macronutrient targets and doesn’t keep you in the dark with food quantities or worse cookie cutter meal plans when you paid specifically for customized coaching. Basically, know what you ought to be paying for and don’t pay for something that isn’t completely individualized for you, and updated on a weekly or frequent basis.
And as you already know - my staples regardless of macronutrient targets still stand: 70-90% whole/unprocessed foods, 2+ fruits, 2+ veggies, adequate fiber, adequate EPA/DHA, etc, per day.
Cutting shapes necessities: donut in hand (seriously, if no donut to counterbalance your body weight, your moves will be choppy) and make sure it’s right before leg day, providing an excellent source of blood flow to the targeted muscle groups pre training session #JTarac #legday #cuttingshapes #fitfam #fitness #TeamAtrain #legendsofaesthetics #gymshark #LVFT #nike #sponsorme #srs
