Ask Francisco Anything...
We're going to host a little Q/A with Genomyx athlete and WNBF Natural Pro Francisco Montealegre... If you have a question or questions, ask away and it just very well make the final cut in what will be the first of many interviews with our athletes...
And considering that just one of his thighs have a greater circumference than my waist (and I'm a weighty dude), I'd say he knows a thing or two...
And yes, folks, that flight shirt is making a comeback...

Oh sick thread
How many times a week do you perform HIIT training? Did you notice an increase muscle mass from HIIT training as well? There are lots of studies demonstrating its ability to produce an anabolic environment but its generally thought of more as a fat loss tool. With your experience in training where would you place HIIT training in relevance to your total progress?
Of course that all assumes you do HIIT training lol but if you do it would be nice to see your answers to all those.

-Increases the resting metabolic rate (RMR) for the following 24 hours due to excess post-exercise oxygen consumption...so i use it to get lean (2-3 times per week when dieting and 1-2 when trying to gain muscle. I also use it offseason to help w calorie partitioning...in simple words i can eat more without gaining too much fat
-Increases my Cardiovascular Capacity... while posing I can hold my poses for longer periods of time without moving....while training i can get a few more reps because my heart and lungs can keep working and pumping oxigen/blood to the muscles for longer periods of time...this = to strenght gains.

In regards to your hiit or cardio type training:
Is this done after lifting or in a separate session? How often do you usually train in a week?

When trying to cut what are some changes you start to make? For instance what supplement changes and diet type changes do you make? Or do you just increase the calorie deficit from training?

As far as diet is concerned, I start by eating only clean foods..no more cheat meals, for me this means no more going to restaurants on the wkends ;( I keep my protein intake high (aprox 1.5lb per bodyweight) my fats around 0.35. As far as carbs i keep them as the are...so if im eating 350g of carbs/day (high days) and or 250g on low days for example i keep eating the same amount. because just by stop the cheat meals i normally start to lose weight right away.
As far as training...i dont change anything...i just keep training as hard as i can
Finally...as far as cardio, i introduce cardio 2 or 3 times/week
Supplements stay the same.
