    Few questions to those that have trained/ is training under Bobo


    um... just a few questions if you don't mind me asking, being a poor uni boy here in Aus it's hard to fork out that money, but so far from what I've read it seems a worthwhile thing to invest in.

    Nutrition wise, how do you find the diet? Is it easy to follow or adjust to? Are foods explained why they should be eaten at a certain time or is it like just a specific macro breakdown at certain times?
    How did you find the results, everything you expected or better/ worse than thought? Did you continue after the initial 8 weeks, if so how did you find it?
    How does the training work, is it like a diet is sent on a daily/ weekly basis along with notes and training? Or something else

    Sorry about the mass hoard of questions... but if anyone could help with these it would be much appreaciated, ta

    Just finished my 8 week fatloss program of Bobo's. Through his training and nutrition outline, I was finally able to get down to the single digits in body fat (which I never was able to do before), and kept my weight in the range I wanted without losing much muscle.

    Nutrition wise, it was easy to follow as every meal for everyday was outlined, the information packet even included a grocery list of items needed for your diet plan. The foods chosen are selected for a precise reason and corresponds to the particular muscle trained for that day. As your program progresses Bobo tweaks your nutritional profile accordingly. He had modified my diet slightly towards the end to keep my fatloss steady.

    Results? Well I was very specific in my goals from the beginning, from the weight I wanted to be at down to the bf%, and achieved every goal I had set. One thing I found very comforting, was the fact that you were never alone. If you ever had a question, concern, or needed a little motivational encouragement...he was there. You will have complete access to Bobo through cell, PM, and email, and response time is rapid!

    One thing I want to stress to you and to anyone, is that the complete outline of diet and exercise WORKS, BUT it will not do the work for you. I'm positive that anyone who applies their personalized plan will get results...the degree will be COMPLETELY up to the individual and how dedicated they are.

    Just to add on to this thread, I was wondering about equipment requirements. Can someone working out from home with the basic equipment (ie, bench, barbell, DBs) do your program or do your clients need to be a memeber of a gym? Is a power rack a requirement? Do you base everything off of the big lifts? Specifically, I'm asking about the cutting programs.

    I'm sure Bobo can accommodate your limited access to equipment. When I was going on vacation, Bobo was willing to work up a "weightless" routine in case I couldn't find a gym.

    There are no equipment requirements at all.

    I went with the deluxe weightloss program. The prices are listed on the site www.flanutrition.com
    I can't answer for Bobo in regards to discounts, but no I did not receive any...

    Nice work, did you use any weight loss drugs or androgens? Do you think you'll be able to keep the weight off, using Bobo's program indefinitely?

    Used ephedra a handful of times pre-workout (maybe 5 or 6 times) but had to stop because started working out late at night and couldn't use anything that would keep me up. Initially was going to use M4OHN, but decided not to. Wanted to see how effective the diet and exercise routine was alone. This was evidence for me that supplements are beneficial but diet and exercise take precedence. The only thing used was whey protein. Towards the end I used Bolt a few times, as I became paranoid of getting too small but stopped because I felt like it was making me hold a little water (which I have a tendency to do). So in essence the results achieved were totally from eating the right things at the right time and a solid workout routine.

    Do I think I'll be able to keep the weight off? I plan on not only maintaining but continually setting goals and reaching them. Bobo's complete diet and exercise plan has given me a great foundation to build upon and now it's my responsibility for the construction!

    That sounds great, I'm glad his program is something that one can follow long term, as opposed to a quick fix like a CKD, etc.

    Yes, I've found the low carb type diets to be impossible to follow long term. Plus, you feel so weak and worthless in the gym. I was actually able to get stronger on my lifts following Bobo's nutrition plan.

    Just my .02


    Xil.... I'll be starting Bobo's fat loss program this coming week. Obviously, I'm not able to give you the "skinny" on the results yet.. (sorry couldn't help myself) but I'd like to give you a few different reasons to consider signing up.

    Service, flexibility, service, integrity, and .... oh yeah,

    SERVICE!!

    I had previously shelled out a respectable amount of cash to a "famous" trainer that offered his services online. I was promised a unique meal and workout plan, periodic reviews to assess my progress and adjust the plan, and access to the private training forum. I actually spoke to the guy on two occasions. Once to set up payment for the plan, and again when he asked me if I wanted to renew. The plan did squat for me, but the trainer never knew that. Because he never asked. I followed the program faithfully and saw modest results (I was in terrible shape, so ANY program would have done something for me), the guy was a week late giving me access to the private forum and ignored my request for an extension to make up for the week I didn't get. Needless to say, I declined the renewal. Let's contrast that with Bobo's performance so far...

    I've spoken with him more than a dozen times via PM, and twice over the telephone. He refused to charge my credit card until we had an in-depth consultation, and I received my meal plan and workout program within 24 hours of the consultation!! I looked over the plan (much more detailed than the "famous" trainer's plan) and had about 30 or so questions. I fired off a PM to Bobo at midnight, and the answers to my questions were there when I woke up!!

    Oh yeah... I forgot to mention that Bobo did all of this while he was RIDING OUT TWO HURRICANES!!

    Never missed a beat.

    Save your money, xil... and hire Bobo. Before he gets too "famous"!

    stryder and Manu20...

    Thank you both. I sure appreciate the encouragement!!

    I enjoyed your training log, stryder. I don't expect to look as good as you do in just 8 weeks (I'm starting in the HIGH 20's BF%), but I know I can make some great progress if I can just keep myself motivated like you did during your program.

    I'm pretty anxious to get started... Day 1 for me begins tomorrow.

    Now where did I put that LAST piece of cheesecake?

    Cheers!!

    I don't have bulking plans

    A lot of my clients that use the LBM building plan dont post often but I can tell you that all are gaining at a slow and steady rate. I had one guy gain LBM, lose bf% during PCT. The majority actually lose bf% at first while increasing strenght. Postive LBM gains start to occur around week 1-2. Most of my clienst follow the same pattern and tehy can tell that themselves. I usually have a very good idea of what is going to happen before it happens.

    Both plans have the almost the same food items (much more leeway though) but just categorized and prioritized in differnt fashions.

    "gain LBM, lose bf%..." sounds like my kind of plan! So I guess it's safe to assume no Krispy Kremes and gallons of Mayfield icecream

    Bobo, do you accept paypal as payment?

    I have been thinking about running a ph cycle but ive realised that my diet is well, sh1t!
    So i think i would be better spending my cash to get my diet etc sorted first before wasting money on supps.

    I have been thinking about running a ph cycle but ive realised that my diet is well, sh1t!
    So i think i would be better spending my cash to get my diet etc sorted first before wasting money on supps.
    ...very smart move!

    So many fail to realize how big of a role diet plays in achieving our fitness goals.

    Even if you had a good diet going you would benefit from the changes he would implement. Diet is key and you will be handed the information that takes people years of researching to learn.
