David’s Diet and Training Earned Him a Six-Pack at 46
by UP Fitness, December 6, 2017
A six pack can be yours at any age.
Forty-six-year-old David is proof that age is irrelevant when it comes to forging the ultimate physique.
The financial recruiter’s main goal was to get abs finally, and in 12 weeks at Ultimate Performance he achieved his goal.
His phenomenal before and after images are a testament to what can be achieved with the right nutrition and training.
“My results exceeded my wildest dreams. At 46 years old, I looked better than I have in my entire life.
“Honestly, I could have entered a physique contest and at least placed, if not won.”
Before coming to UP, David exercised regularly and was conscious about his diet – following a fasting protocol five days a week.
But he could never quite get in the shape he wanted.
“I was active. I was doing intermittent fasting 5-7 days a week and was jump roping around 3-4 days a week.”
After seeing the results that could be achieved at UP, he was incredibly motivated to make the changes he wanted to his body.
“I was feeling good physically, as I had been active. Mentally I was fired up. I really wanted it.”
The moment he started training with UP, everything changed.
The expert guidance of his UP trainer helped set up a bespoke nutrition plan that worked for his body and his goals.
The intermittent fasting stopped, more structure was added to his diet with macronutrients, and the results soon started to come.
“I obviously added intense weight lifting three days a week for an hour and my diet basically lowered carbs and started watching my macros to see how it affected my body.”
The training was tough for David – but getting real results requires hard work and dedication through every single rep in the gym.
“Honestly, I was tired from the heavy lifting and focus it took to watch my diet. I just focused on form and lifting the weights.
“My skipping got better actually as my stamina did increase in the end.”
Twelve weeks of optimising his training and nutrition produced his incredible ‘before’ and ‘after’ results.
What was the secret to David’s stunning 12-week transformation?
“The secret is there is no secret. You need to dedicate yourself completely.
“Training, diet, sleep – it all adds up. It’s like an annuity – you get compound interest and results.
“The more you put in consistently, the more you get out. The mental aspect is as important as the physical – if not more actually.”
David has seen huge changes from his transformation that go way beyond the impressive physical results he achieved.
“The transformation changed me in that I now understand no matter what it is I focus on; I can achieve it with single-minded focus.
“I would highly recommend UP if the trainers are all like Frank. He listened to what my needs were, tailored my programme to my needs (from a training perspective) and kept me on the straight and narrow (from a diet, sleep, supplement perspective.)
“He didn't just provide me with training – but also diet, sleep, supplement and mental strategies, helping me to put everything together.”
