    Personal Trainer


    Well, I have forked up the cash and am going to be working with a personal trainer for a little bit.
    My plan is to bulk on about 10lbs of muscle, and drop 2% bf.
    I need this because I have become stuck in a rut with my current training routine, so he will shake things up with a new lifting schedule.
    Hopefully I can get more symmetry in my body, I know certain areas need more work than others.
    Plus having somebody there to push me during my workouts is great, I can get "lazy" when lifting on my own, its just boring.
    Having somebody to talk to would be great.
    Anyway, I will let you know how I get on with this new schedule, and any fun things I learn along the way.

    Current Stats:
    Height - 5'6"
    Weight - 130 lbs
    Biceps - 11"
    Waist - 26.5"
    Hips - 36

    Hoping to drop some hips and waist and add some biceps.

    Actually, my fear is that I understand nutrition and supps much better than him.
    When he found out I was a scientist his response was - "wow, cool, like chemicals and all that?"
    Hmmm
    Anyway, the worst case scenario is that I get some motivation.

    Wow!
    Yeh, at $55 for a hours session he had better be good.
    I didn't sign up for many just in case.
    Like I said, I am hoping he will teach me proper form with certain lifts and help me determine what I need to work on.
    The diet and supps thing I have down myself.
    I am doing three days in a row with him, then I will work on my own again and maybe do a session a month with him to check everything is going ok.
    These guys are not cheap, but the normal price (I got the discount price) is $80 a session!
    I am in the wrong business

    Have you considered using FLA Nutrition and Bobo? Since you are paying $55/hour, if it does not work I suggest giving FLA Nutrition a try.

    Ok, well I just did session 2 of 3 this week with my trainer, and man, it rocks
    I am so sore everywhere, much more than usual.
    It was nice to have him there critique every single aspect of my technique to make sure the form was 100% perfect on each set.
    Tomorrow is leg day, but right now I can barely lift my arms 2 inches Oh how I love the pain.
    I am glad I spent the money, I needed this boost.
    I will probably work with him once a month or so just to keep me on track.
