Muscle transformation update

Every now and then I like to compare my current size and development to the photo when I started…this was now nearly 9 years ago!

This month I am also 49 and I promised myself I will be in the best ever shape when I reach 50.

My training is very hardcore right now. I have a focused training partner which helps a lot! (thanx Mark!)

Busy with my 3 months cutting regime with supersets and more emphasis on higher reps with slightly lighter weights.

My diet is very clean and bf is dropping visibly every week.

Soon I will post some decent progress photos.

So here is my latest comparison photo

I actually train twice a day now. Midday with my training partner and afternoon with my son. He is only 7 now and I am starting to show him the ropes of basic training, sets, targeted muscles, etc… He WANTS a 6-pack badly and his daddy is his hero with all the muscles…but the other day in the locker room he told me “Dad look! That guys is stronger than you!” I was not impressed and try to convince him otherwise….eish! just have to train harder!!

(PS: The guy had a huge back but my arms was bigger than his…honest. lol!)

Anyway, happy training from a cold and stormy Cape Town

My Last photo of my cutting phase. Now I take a 10 day break with wife and kid and then I start on a building phase for 3 months with my training partner (HEAVY weights and 6-8 reps  per set with not more )than 12-14 sets per workout). Looking forward to eating a bit more…

The next photo taken 12 Oct 2013 – 2 months after my 49th birthday:

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.
