Bodybuilding World Volume 16 issue # 2

By: Sandy Riedinger

NO matter what you pay... You need to walk away with a value that exceeds your expense. Sometimes we don't see the snake right in front of us getting ready to bite or feel the gun in our back until it is too late. The information you get from Beverly, no matter if it is in this magazine, on our website, from a Beverly advisor, me, or Roger, it is worth noting. We steer straight. No funny business. We take your needs to heart. Your personal success matters to us.

The Self Center 
"It took me 9 years to find the information that I got out of the No Nonsense Magazine in just one hour of reading..." said 45yr old Susan Hyman, owner of the Self Center. Her weight had topped out at 242lbs before she did something about it. Now she has transformed her physique to a tight, sleek bodybuilder's physique. Not shy… she will tell you all about it.

Superman in 6 weeks?
Mark Kirkwood writes ... "I didn't believe it, but I tried your article on increasing your bench by 30# in 6 weeks anyway." (www.bodybuildingworld.com - Magazine Volume 15 issue # 3) "Every muscle mag has some routine to make you a superman in 6 weeks. None have lived up to their claims so I was like "yeah, right " when I saw yours. I decided to give it a shot and now I am saying 'Right On!!!' When I read the article I realized it was not the typical pyramid routine I had tried before, it was different and made sense to me.

"I am 59 years old and weigh 150lbs at 5’7". Been lifting for just a few years but have achieved decent results. I’ve put 3" on my chest, and 2 ½ " on each arm but still could only get 165 on my bench. My goal has always been to bench 200 but having never come close, figured 200 just may be unrealistic at my age. Well it's not! I made 180 after 6 weeks on the program and 200 after 9 weeks. It took me longer because I was on vacation twice during the period and had to go back and do the prior week over each time."

BI is Priceless
Old schooler Jim Caudill writes... well let me preface a few points before you read on. Jim used to live in Lima, OH, about 2 hours from Beverly. He would drive down and get his body fat checked, discuss training, get diet updates, and even a posing critique if he was getting ready for a show. There was never a charge. He bought Beverly products and that was all we asked. Jim moved to Texas a few years ago. He now trains in what is considered, a very savvy bodybuilding gym. Back to JIM--- "I heard a client discussing cardio with one of the trainers at my new gym. Of course after years of going through the Roger & Sandy school of nutrition enhanced with Beverly products I disagreed with his solution to the client's problem - adding more carbs to his diet and then doing 2 hours of cardio daily to burn them off. As you know, I hate all cardio and you guys taught me how to avoid it with proper dietary and supplement adjustments… Just to give you an idea of what else I have seen since being down here I wanted to share the rates for a 10 week nutritional guidance plan = $50 per week ($500). This is for a meal plan alone; you have to purchase the SUPPLEMENTS extra. Posing coaching = $30 per session recommended package includes 10 sessions ($300). Also, various nutritionist/diet coaches and personal trainers host boot camp style sessions which range in price from $40-$90 per participant. I have watched many of these boot camp and/or personal trainers with their clients most of them are terrible - it's like paying someone to hurt you. There are also some awesome trainers down here like Steve Trentham (he's a Beverly guy) and great personal trainer, and a young guy named Greg McCoy - they are 2 of the best guys around this areas for sure.

At the national level I have a friend who just paid $3000 for 10 weeks of nutritional guidance…WOW! I guess if I was a top ranked super heavy-weight with great genetics and potential I would do it too.

Here’s my long winded point - everything you and Sandy gave me - knowledge, diet consultations, posing help, supplement discounts, as well as training and cardio advice I took for granted. At the time, I never realized that people actually charged money for these services.

Bottom line - THANK YOU. What you have taught me is priceless in my eyes as it has allowed me to stay in good shape for going on 15 years.

Thinking about Jim and when he used to come to Beverly, helped me remember some of the great information that we published even back then. We have online back issues of No Nonsense going all the way back to 1996. Go to www.bodybuildingworld.com and scroll all the way to the very bottom of the page. Click on BACK ISSUES and you'll be entering a whole new world of bodybuilding information.
Speaking of bodybuilding information, one of our No Nonsense contributers, Steve Colescott has set up a couple of very informative websites for the hard core bodybuilder. Articles at http://ironsubculture.yolasite.com/ and blog at http://ironsubculture.blogspot.com/.

The following Question is typical of the majority of No Nonsense readers and BI clients. I am in this category. How about you?

"I am turning 45 this month (could be anywhere from 35 to 65). Which supplements are best at my age? I am interested in fat loss, but if I can add muscle too, that would be great. I looked at my purchases over the last year, and I've tried just about everything at some point. I am not sure which ones are the "Must Haves" for me. I am not a bodybuilding competitor, but I do exercise regularly and have a very demanding career…"

1. Check out our supplement profiling chart, www.beverlyinternational.com. Click on Easy to Use Supplement Recommendation chart.
2. We have a new goal specific Diet Library. What? You haven't heard of it. Well, that's because we just finished it. Stay tuned for details on how and when this is available.
3. Since the above email question was from a male. My supplement suggestions were:

  • Ultimate Muscle Protein or Muscle Provider are a given - the must haves of all must haves.
  • Must Have for both Fat Loss and to retain Muscle at your age: Quadracarn
  • Must Have For Fat Loss: Lean Out ; Very Helpful - 7 Keto
  • To Retain and Gain Muscle: Must Have: Muscle Synergy (the older you are the more important Muscle Synergy becomes for retaining strength and muscle size); Very Helpful - Density.

Sandy Riedinger's 7 Ways to Reach Maximum Rewards from Your Competition Experience. (No matter what sport you are engaged in or training for)
1. Be a Sleuth... get as much information about the event as possible. Put a folder or binder together. Print off all the rules and regulations from the sanctioning body.
2. Read it. Read all of it over and over. Be determined to know all there is to know about your sport. Ask questions.
3. Send in your entry with all the necessary information well in advance of the deadline to make sure you are registered. Print clearly and legibly. The date is set. You have entered the game. Now you have to finish it. No quitters please.
4. Clarify and record all important times in your binder. Check in, meetings, memberships, athlete briefings, weigh in, height checks… always keep the meet promoter's phone number in your phone in case of emergency.
5. Become a reader not a deleter… Read all emails from the event. Print them out and put them in your binder. If you don't you might miss an important piece of information.
6. Bring your game face with a smile on competition day, no frowns. Smile and say thanks to people. Meet new faces. Share contact information. Share stories. Most of all help someone else other than yourself. Competition is social.
7. When the show is over keep remembrances. They will have much greater futuristic importance one year, 5 years, or speaking personally, 25 years later... Keep photos and scores. You'll want to know how you looked and you want to see your placing. Be sure that you find out how to get photos and where the scores will be posted.

Remember, not all events are the same. Operations change… Never take anything for granted, and most of all, don't blame others for you not knowing the information. If you follow the instructions above, you won't be walking in when the meeting is over and there is no way you will be left sitting in the back of the room with a huge question mark (?) on your forehead.

I am going to close this segment down by giving you a taste for the competition from our 2011 NKY event. If you have anything you would like to share, send it to sandyr@beverlyinternational.net.
Ta ta for now!
