BLOG OF THE MONTH: Adrian Veinot
Thank you for reading my first blog.
My Name is Adrian Veinot. I have been training hard for 8 years as I work towards being the best aesthetic package I can be. Working out initially started for me as a stress reducer; now, though it is still a stress reducer, I feel that I approach my training at times like a scientist or an artist, making calculated choices and putting them into action to reach an overall goal. Don't get me wrong, training is still and always will be a labor of love, but now after 5 years of tweaking and re-tweaking my physique, I've found that it's time to dial in and get serious.
Big things are on the way for me. Up first is a video shoot for Nutrabolics, Prozis.com and Bodybuiding.com. April 1st 2012 I fly from my home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia to Los Angeles, California to work with the fantastic team from 1stpointmedia.com to film product information video's about Nutrabolics' supplement line. I am extremely excited, the journey, the job, and the out come will all be a great experience and exposure for me as I prepare to storm the stage after a 5 year hiatus.
My first show will be the WBFF May 26th Halifax, Nova Scotia show where I plan to compete in the muscle model division. I am excited for the opportunity to compete against the “best of the best”. Even better is that the show happens a few blocks from my home and my friends, family, clients and fans will be able to see me show-off up close and personal. If all goes to plan and I win and or attain pro status, I intend on competing again at the WBFF world championships on August 24-25th 2012 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Right now at eight weeks out my diet is right on track, lots of healthy fish, chicken, and lean beef.
I still have some sugars in my meal plan all incorporated around pre and post workout. My nutrition plan is unlike most other fitness types who consume the 5-8 small portion meals a day. I eat a what is called a 16/8 IMF (16 hour by 8 hour intermittent fasting), Simply explained I dont eat for 16 hours of the day and then consume all my meals within an 8 hour window. I don't under eat, I simply condense all my meals that would have been spaced every 2.5 hours into a few larger meals with my 8 hour time frame. I am not saying my style is superior its simply the style I prefer and feel works best for my lifestyle.
A sample day would look like this:
• 5:30am wake up: ThermalXTC, one serving anabolic state, one serving super fats, one serving hemotropin,3 grams L-Carnitine with 12oz water
• Cardio: LISS- low intensity steady state 45 minutes
• After cardio: Clients from 8-2 or 3pm
• 12:00pm: ThermalXTC with 10oz water
• 2:00-3:00pm: 2 scoops protein shake (Isobolic) + small handful of cashews or walnuts
• 4:00pm: Egg Whites+ vegetables (no starchy carbs), CLA & Fish oil
• 1 hour before workout meal: Chicken and rice with an apple or strawberries
• 30 minutes pre workout: Full serving of Swollen 3 grams L-Carnitine
• WORKOUT (Try to keep at 30-45 mins)
• Intra workout: full serving of Anabolic State
• Post workout: full serving Anabolic Window
• Dinner: 6oz chicken or white fish + vegetables + carbs (brown rice, sweet potato, Shirataki noodles )
• 8:00-9:00: Cardio (45 minutes LISS)
• Before bed: protein (Isobolic) + with cocoa powder and coconut shreds
My training regime is as follows
Monday: vertical press star complexes and Quad dominant Squat star complexes, Post workout cardio is 10 minutes of HIIT (high intensity interval cardio)
Tuesday: Bench press star complexes, and Dead-lifts star complexes
Wednesday: Off weights only Abdominal training with 10 minutes of post workout HIIT cardio
Thursday: Repeat in reverse order if Monday’s workout
Friday: Repeat in reverse of Tuesday's workout with 10 minutes post workout HIIT cardio
Saturday and Sunday: Off weights, cardio and abs only.
I hope this gives everyone a little insight to how I am prepping for my shoots and upcoming shows,
in blogs to come I will be going into more detail of how, why, and for what reason my supplement regime is the way it is, as well as more detail into the exercises, sets, reps and fine details of my strength training.

BLOG OF THE MONTH: JAYSON WYNER
(as seen in Muscle Insider)
Q: Hi Jayson, I’m 23 years old and have been training off and on for about 2 years. I take protein at every meal (20 to 30 g) and here are my best lifts: Squat 365 for 1; Bench 240 for 1; and I can curl 85 pounds for 5 with a slight swing on the last reps. My arms don’t seem to grow no matter how hard I hit them. What’s a good way to shock my arms into growth?
A:I think the best way to shock your arms into growth is to train them once every 5 days, have an anabolic diet based all around your training and make sure your really focusing on the muscle pump and contraction while not over training.. I think a total of 4 sets of 3 quality exercises per muscle group would be more than enough to start shocking your arms provided the rep range is at 10 reps per set. I would suggest training arms mid afternoon with 2-3 carb meals in your system to ensure your training atoptimal energy level. By giving yourself the 2-3 meals your body is going to be fully loaded with the energy it will need to push your training to the limit to maximize the shocking of your arms. I would also recommend a great pre-workout such as SWOLLEN by Nutrabolics with a good amount of Arginine to really experience an excellent pump. During your training I would also suggest drinking 20-30grams of BCAA’s to ensure your preserving your muscle mass and igniting muscle growth, I personally use 2-3 serving of Anabolic State during. Then there is the post workout recovery process, which is another extremely crucial time for your body as this is where the recovery and growth process all starts! I would suggest a good amount of protein 30-50grams along with 10 grams of BCAA’s and a quality carb supplement like Waxey Maze or Vitargo with 30-45grams of carbs. Then following this shake I would eat a meal within the hour.
