Sand came to me with the goal of “ripping up”. Given the time frame and his physique (weak, as he hadn’t trained properly before) I think we did a good job. The photos represent the 12 week period from 22nd Feb this year.
Results: 8lbs down. Arms size maintained, leg size a couple of cm bigger. -A clear indication of growth, as they would have been smaller with the fat loss alone. Bench +18lbs, Squat & Deadlift +50lbs.
“Working with Andy was a great learning experience. I learned more about my body than I have ever known, and can honestly say that I’ve learned a method of dieting from him that I can apply for years to come and easily tweak to reach other goals. Andy was also very pleasant to work with and always answered my questions in a timely manner. He also motivated me and helped me not sweat the minor things when I needed it. He truly is a great coach. I learned a lot about where my passion lies during this 12-week journey with him and I want to learn even more and am looking forward to working with Andy again in the future sometime. As for the diet progress, I can honestly say that I’m very happy with it. My abs show when relaxed, my legs grew a little, my arms didn’t get smaller and the loss in body fat just makes me look bigger than I have ever looked. I can’t wait to see where lean bulking takes me. Andy also suggested that I follow Starting Strength as my training routine as I hadn’t been lifting for very long, and all of my lifts went up significantly while losing weight. Even when my fat loss stalled, my strength continued to skyrocket. My energy levels and mood have also been very good during the diet and that alone gives me motivation to keep using Leangains. I’ve also been enjoying life even more and the dieting never once got in the way of enjoying college life. I’ve got to say thanks once more to Andy for being a great mentor and nutrition coach.”
