Hi guys and girls, Gert Louw from Cape Town.
Every year just after my birthday it is sort of a tradition for me to do a flexing and inspirational video.
This year it was my 52nd birthday.
So here is the video just after my birthday:

With this video I want to inspire a little.
Neither your age, nor your health should ever (!) stand in your way.
Now, most of you know by now that 12 years ago I nearly died and doctors did not give me any good news. But with faith I moved forward and apply healthy living on all levels and also did some house cleaning and moving closer to God ( I am a follower of Jesus Christ).
Obviously it was a long and hard road and the body took long to respond to this healthy living but the wheel did turn and it is keeping on turning as a result.
Now, I am not naïve in thinking everyone with serious health issues can and will turn around like I did, but what I do believe is that with faith in God and by living very healthy, one CAN make a huge difference. Obviously you need your doctor’s approval to embark on such a journey.
But, let me share with you the core of my healthy living
My training program is as follows:
- Mondays – Chest, Biceps and abs
- Tuesdays – Shoulders, Traps and calves
- Wednesdays – rest
- Thursdays – Back, triceps and abs
- Fridays – Legs, upper pecs and calves
- Saturdays & Sundays – rest
My supplement regime
- ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid)
- CQ10 (Co Enzyme Q10)
- Omega 3+6
- Strong Multi Vitamin
- Slow release Vit C
Muscle building supplements:
- Whey protein powder
How do I structure my training?
I do a 3-months Cutting phase with a very specific cutting phase diet and training with lighter weights at a higher rep range followed by 1 week rest and then a 3-month building phase with a very specific building phase diet and training with heavier weights to absolute muscle failure at lower reps (about 8 reps per set) followed by 1 week rest and the repeat.
This allow me to build muscle but also to recover the strained tendons and joints.

About my diets
I make use of one of the top fitness nutritionists in the field (BERNADETTE BEYER) to work out my diets for each phase according to my bodytype and goals. This is the crucial part of your success and without a very focussed diet there will be no success.
My blog contains a LOT of info for free that can help you through all these processes.
But for those interested, I also offer my exact training/supplem and diet system via the ADVANCED SYSTEM II (option E). The same nutritionist I use will also work out your diet solution and I myself attend to working out your training and supplement attack based. If you want to signup, just choose option E via the following link: https://gertlouw.com/contact-me
Now, everyone…happy training!
