Hey Everyone!

As of recent I have teamed up with my buddy Justin Hayward to do some personal training for me. Now as of late Iíve been finding it a little hard to bust past some plateaus Iíve come across with my numbers in the gym and with my physique. Both Justin and I have known of each other for a while through another fitness site and I have had a chance to see some of the clients he has worked with and how much they have changed just from working with him.

When I had heard he had a couple slots open for new clients I jumped on the opprotunity!. Thankfully I was fast off the hop in talking him because he has agreed to help me out. For the next 8 weeks or so Iíll be strictly under his guidance with my diet and training.

Right now here is what my stats look like.

I'm 24, 5'6, and 155.4 lbs (first thing in the morning before any food/water)

May 13th measurements (Taken cold/flexed and in inches)

Thighs - 22.5

Chest - 41.5

Waist - 31.5

Hips - 33.5

Calves - 13.5

Arms - 15.5

Forearms Ė 12

Hopefully we can get some of these numbers moving in the right direction! For right now here is what my diet and training look like. These things will be tweaked and changed as time goes by I am sure.
