What is In the Trenches?

Great question. For nearly 25 years I worked “In the Trenches” of the gym floor as well as consulted clients all over the world. Working face to face with real people has given me a unique perspective as to what really works to achieve an elite physique and the body you desire. Not only have I spent decades building my own body to the highest level, but I’ve done so with thousands of clients. I’m also very proud to be known as a “pioneer” in the Ketogenic-Bodybuilding Ethos.

So, what you get as a subscriber is simple. You get every workout I do. Complete with sets, reps, and other insights and form cues to help get the most out of each movement. And, unlike other subscriptions, you get a video example of EVERY exercise. So, you know exactly how to perform the exercise the way I like. No need to search the internet, pour through YouTube videos, or do the same old routine you’ve done a million times. For $7 a month (yes, that’s not a typo, it’s only $7 a month!) you have access to a completely unique workout up to 6 days a week. My workouts can be used whether you’re looking to put on size, or if you’re trying to get shredded. All workouts remain on the site for you to reuse or reference when you like. Use the workouts in any order or follow along with my split. I also throw in bonus circuits that I perform on some of my badass clients in the gym. We currently have over 100 workouts loaded and more every week!

That’s not all! (I’m starting to sound like one of those stupid infomercials). You also get Instructional and Rant Videos! My videos are unscripted, unedited, and unfiltered. I have videos on nutrition, training, supplementation, and whatever has set me off and prompted me to turn on the camera and give you my no BS response to what’s going on in the culture.
Lastly there is a documents section. You have access to important documents in PDF format that you can view or download. *My unique and very cool Macros Calculator Excel Spreadsheet is also there so you can determine your own baseline macros to start your journey off right! This is the same calculator I use with my personal training clients!

Can anyone use these workouts?

YES! The workouts are designed to be used by anyone at any skill level. Whether you’ve been lifting for years and just need to switch things up, or if you’re just getting started. You’ll just need a gym membership or a decently equipped home gym. You can substitute nearly every exercise I do with a dumbbell, barbell, or bodyweight movement if you do not have access to a particular piece of equipment I used. Most of my workouts utilize simple free weights.

Need help?

Simply add a comment on the workout page and I try to answer questions as quickly as possible. I won’t leave you hanging. You can always shoot me an email as well.
