My first flexing video

At loooooong last I made a short flexing video.

All footage shot during the 2nd week of Jan 2013.
My training is spot on and weight now at 87.5kg, 8% bf (bodyfat) and 1.75m tall. (For those that don’t know – I am 48 y/o.)

I am busy cutting right now to lower bf from 8 to 6%. This should take me 2 to 3 months…slow process to ensure I loose no muscle but only bf.

The following changes is applied to my normal training program:

  • Close to the same diet as before just make sure I cheat less often and decrease carbohydrates (complex and simple) intake slightly (about 15%).
  • Same training as before with exception of 15 reps per set and not 8 as in the growth phase of the program.
  • Decreasing all my training weights for all excercises by approximately 1/3 of the weight size.
  • Muscle failure at approximately the 15th rep in each set (instead of the 8th rep as in the building phase).
  • Minimal rest inbetween sets…sweat baby sweat! (If too exhausted = 1 min stretching)
  • Introduce more supersets and more burnout sets (to maximize energy expenditure).

Will post update photos soon on lower body fat levels.

Wish you all a blessed 2013!

In the deepest south of South Africa you will find me. Dwelling in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I live close to God and try to follow in the footsteps of Christ as led the Holy Spirit. Other passions include Karate and Judo and wrestling (and off course surfing for many years). Karate I did for many years, Judo 4 yrs and for a short period kickboxing until I was knocked silly one time with blood all over and teeth protruding through my lip, but if I have to choose over, I would choose wrestling…simply because of the brutal power against power game with your opponent. Love it. Love my home theatre hobby, my youtube channel and spending time with family! And off course me and my son's new adventure https://mediax.photography ...and love flying my drone - DJI Phantom 4 Pro For those interested, this blog is my database of all my fitness and transformation knowledge. And NO (!) I am not getting any money for it and neither do I promote anything on it or getting sponsored by anybody. My blog is simply where I want to help other guys living a healthier life and become the best they can be, inside and out and ultimately it is my legacy I want to leave my one and only son – now 13 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! So donations very welcome! Just click the donation button... I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40. After much hardship one of my main aims now is to assist other guys with healthy living and transforming themselves inside and out. I don’t know how much grace will still be given me, but I live now every moment to be the best I can be. To be the best bodybuilder I can be, the best father, best husband and best friend to those whom my paths crosses. I want to live a life worth living and not just do what excites me or pleases me. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish. Reading this far, the last bit important info on me you need to know, is that my anchor in life is Jesus Christ. Please bear in mind, English is my 2nd language and as a result their might be spelling, grammatical and other language errors in my blog – I do apologise for this! Wish you all many blessings.

  1. Great job, Gert! Looking good, nice size…and best to you as you seek to cut the b.f. even further. Don’t lose any of the hard earned muscle though. 🙂

    1. Thanx Bok! Yip -I’ll make sure I do the cutting slow and safe…agree don’t wanna shrink any muscles! Have a great day bud and a blessed 2013. G.
