`I saw what my brother had done to himself,’ says Zack, a second-year medical student in Prague, ‘and I thought, if he can do it, so can I! I was eating what you’d call a normal diet — fish and chips, takeaways, stuff like that. That all changed…’
`When I trained him, it was a three-month time frame again, like the Body-For-Life approach,’ says Lazo. ‘I got him to do morning moderate pace cardio, from Monday to Friday. The first month or so, we focused a lot on big compound movements, squats, bench press, deadlift, clean and jerk. To build more muscle mass, he did this three times a week, with plenty of rest and recuperation. The next phase of his training was high intense isolation exercise, plenty of drop sets, super giant sets and hardly any rest. We trained like this five to six times a week. His overall calorie intake was then much lower compared to his first phase, and he started to shed the fat and shape his body.’ Other great way of getting rid of the fat can be found at http://www.guideglobal.com/can-green-coffee-extract-help-me-lose-weight/
Zack relished the approach, and the results were soon apparent.
`The training was pretty hard and waking up in the mornings to do cardio was tough, but I really enjoyed it because I could see results every week. I enjoy a challenge; I like medical exams, I like putting myself in those situations.’
While Lazo extends what was initially going to be a one-year sabbatical from his MA, Zack fits in workouts around his medical studies.
`I love training. I always want to advocate training to people. It makes me feel better when I’m studying. When you see older people in their 50s and 60s running or working out, you can see they have a very positive outlook on life.
