Build muscle, stay lean.
That's the goal.
Unfortunately, very few people actually are able to achieve that.
They go on different muscle building programs and one of three things happen.
Either they put on size, but they put on all this fat to go along with it so now they don't really have the physique they're after. They look bulky. They don't have that crisp, Greek god physique they were actually originally going for. They don't have that v-shape. Their face becomes more puffy. Their chest lacks that square, plate of armor look. That's because they put on fat to go with the muscle. Most muscle building gurus talk about, eat the four thousand calories. Always be eating and just put on that size. They mistake twenty pounds as twenty pounds of muscle, when really, it's probably ten pounds of muscle, ten pounds of fat. Anyone can do that. It's really easy, but to build muscle, stay lean is very difficult.
The second thing that happens is people just spin their wheels over and over again. They're training five, six days a week. They're eating every two, three hours, but they're not seeing that substantial, tangible results. Why is that?
The third thing that happens is people focus on doing too much volume on the wrong areas. They're doing tons of squats and deadlifts. They're adding size to their legs and hips but their upper body still kind of looks more or less the same. What's going on is that most people don't focus on what's really, really important, and that's three things, one of which is staying lean.
You want to make sure that nutrition is dialed in to support the maximum rate of muscle growth without causing fat spillover. Once you start putting on fat, your entire look is going to be destroyed. You don't want to have to spend three months cutting for summer. You want to look great year-round. The second thing that happens is people, they focus so much on volume. They focus so much on the pump and the squeeze and the feel. They don't get stronger. What creates muscle growth? Well, really, it's progressive overload. If you go from doing a hundred pound bench press to two hundred pound bench press, your chest is going to grow a lot. That's the bottom line.
The cool thing, when you build your strength and you build your muscle off getting a lot stronger, that muscle is there to stay. It's not going to fluctuate because you didn't have a big meal the other day. It's not going to fluctuate because you've taken three days off the gym. It's there. It's almost permanent, whereas when you do tons of volume, the pump and squeeze stuff, it kind of just fluctuates. You go in on chest day, your arms look small. You go in on arm day, your chest looks small. You're constantly a slave to the gym to have a certain look.
The third thing, really, is that people don't know how to structure their training in a way to achieve the look they really want. If you a movie like Troy with Brad Pitt, that physique, people are zoned in on that physique because it has that proper proportion. It's a proportion game. It's not about weighing two hundred fifty pounds. It's about having that right waist-to-shoulder ratio, the perfect amount of muscle in your chest, your arms, sleek, defined legs. When you have that proportion, and that's what Hollywood is zoned in on, you see stuff like Arrow with Stephen Amell, Troy, Brad Pitt. You see the guy from James Bond, Daniel Craig. They all are achieving a certain look. I call it the Greek god physique because it just makes a massive, night and day difference.
My Greek God Program is honed in on how do you achieve that look? How do you build muscle off staying lean? How do you build muscle in a way that's going to give you the absolute best proportion? How do you make that maximum rate of strength gains on the key lifts to really support that amazing physique? I have amazing people that have gone through the program, put on a ton of muscle, and they look downright amazing. They were never able to do it before. They struggled to put on muscle. They struggled not to gain fat. They struggled to add muscle in a way that actually made them look way better so people are like, "Holy crap, that's how I want to look."
The Greek God program is really that missing link. Very few people have actually tried to address how to gain muscle in a way that will make you look better, how to build muscle without gaining fat, and how to get strong as heck, because if you want to have a great physique, you're going to have to get strong as hell. That's why when people see my videos, they're blown away at how much I'm able to lift. Building your muscle that way is going to make a night and day difference.
