I loved Crossfit from 2011-2013. I now train for natural bodybuilding contests. It really is my first love. I have been training with weights since I was 13. I have been into bodybuilding for 12 years and competitive stair racing for 4 years. My overall goal is to compete at the National Natural Bodybuilding Championships in 2016. I follow a periodized program to help keep my body fat low and increase muscle hypertrophy. I eat clean year round, with the exception to a few treat meals on Sunday. Depending on what goals I have set for myself in my training, my workouts are 45 minutes to 2 hours long. I focus on the weaker body parts first in the week. I do cardio 3-4 times per week, and it varies in intensity and duration. I average a bout a 20-30 minute cardio session. I do not use cardio to lose body fat but for more overall conditioning. When I am getting lean I use a 40% protien, 30 % fat, 30% carbohydrate approach. I watch my macros very closely. I take a full rest day once a week and an active rest day once a week as well. An active rest day may be light cardio, walking or hiking. I enjoy training with weights, so even though I am not in the sport of corssfit anymore I do like watching the athletes train and keeping up with the sport. Fond memories of my time at my local box. All the best Trevor Folgering
