TRAINER SPOTLIGHT - RYAN STANTON FITNESS
Sam Leeper has struggled with his weight ever since he was a teenager. At 23, Sam was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland, which has made it much harder for him to build muscle and lose fat. Sam is now 25 and has lost 115 pounds. His next goal is to step on stage and compete within the next two years. Sam says, “I am very grateful for the years of knowledge and experience Ryan gave me. If not for Ryan, I would have never become fit or developed a passion for fitness.” Sam now eats 3000- 3300 calories daily and has been in a maintenance phase with a slight emphasis on building muscle. His diet to lose 115 pounds was 2500-2800 calories daily. Sam’s current maintenance diet is very doable for anyone.
Meal 1: Greek yogurt with protein granola and blueberries
Snack: Low-fat cottage cheese, a handful of nuts
Meal 2: Lean ground beef with taco seasoning in tortillas with avocado, 1 banana
Snack: UMP protein mixed with water, raw oats, and a handful of nuts
Meal 3: same as Meal 2
Snack: same as one of the previous snacks
Sam’s supplements include Beverly FitTabs, two in the morning and two at night, Muscle Synergy pre-workout, and UMP twice daily.
LOST IN THE MIX - ENERGY RESERVE
Does it seem that whenever you try to lose fat, you lose lean muscle along with it? Here’s help…
There exists an extraordinary substance that burns fat, spares muscle glycogen, reduces muscle catabolism, and enhances fat utilization—thinking steroids? Sorry, that’s not it. Sure, anabolic steroids can undoubtedly do all those things, but Beverly is about making sure you DON’T need steroids to reach your goals.
Unlike steroids, this substance does not raise blood serum triglycerides or lower HDLs (the "good" cholesterol). In reality, it does just the opposite; it gives you a much healthier blood lipid profile….AND both scientific data and reports from those who have used it suggest that this extraordinary substance has one pretty cool side-effect (a joyful mental state). This remarkable substance is none other than the ingredient found in Beverly’s Energy Reserve, L-Carnitine.
Just to let you know a little inside knowledge… Carnitine is very expensive to manufacture and is very unstable. It's hard to make and hard to package. It’s considered a HIGH-END product.
FACT - Research indicates the bare minimum dose to decrease muscle catabolism while accelerating fat loss is 1000-1200 milligrams daily, divided into two doses. (That’s one Energy Reserve tablet twice a day.)
FACT - The most effective dosage is 1800-3600 mg daily divided into 3-6 doses at three to six-hour intervals. (Three to six Energy Reserve daily in divided doses.)
FACT - L-Carnitine is most effective when taken on an empty stomach with water at least 20-30 minutes before eating and again 20-30 minutes before training.
Beverly Bonus - To maximize the effect of Carnitine on the metabolism of branch- chained amino acids, take 1200 mg L-Carnitine (2 Energy Reserve tablets) with 5 Muscle Mass or 6 Muscularity BCAA thirty minutes after training. You won't believe how quickly you'll recover!
Beverly Bonus - Cycle your Energy Reserve supplementation, 2-3 weeks on, 1-2 weeks off.
TOM SMITH OF FLEXED NUTRITION
I asked Tom Smith of Flexed Nutrition (a reseller of Beverly International supplements in Nanticoke, PA) how he did in his recent Powerlifting meet.
“I think I did really well for my first meet. I got 7 out of 9 lifts. Totaled 1,650lbs at age 37 and bodyweight of 238.4, 1st in my age and weight class, 2nd in my age class for the overall total. Missed my deadlift when my technique was off a little, and I popped my back. I’m ok, just a little back aggravation. I was trying to break the state and world record of a 707lb deadlift in my division, but people say that’s really good for my first meet. So that’s cool. Thanks for asking, Sandy
During the 6 months of training and preparation, my main go-to was UMP - Rocky Road flavor, to be specific. I used 1.5 scoops in the morning for my second breakfast and the second 1.5 scoops immediately following my workouts. Not only does it mix well and taste phenomenal, but it never left me feeling bloated or full. I also used Quadracarn to burn some of that fat away and to help build lean muscle mass to grow and recover. Overall, Beverly’s products stand unmatched in the industry, from the quality taste to seeing the results in the mirror. Beverly helped push me to my goals and bring home 2 trophies in my competition. I will continue to use and recommend Beverly in my store. Thanks for making amazing supplements!!!” - Tom Smith, Flexed Nutrition

HERE’S HOW TO REDUCE YOUR WORKOUT TIME AND STILL INCREASE YOUR STRENGTH (DURING BUSY TIMES)
Here is an email from a 50-something golf pro looking to reduce his time in the gym yet continue to make strength and muscle gains during his spring-summer busy season.
Hi Roger - Hope all is well with you. I first wrote to you back in December regarding the wonderful service your Beverly Advisor Team has been giving me. I set a personal goal to go from 155lbs to 160lbs this winter. With their help, I achieved that goal about a month ago. I have stayed very consistent with my meals and supplements. I take in about 220 grams of protein daily and around 150 grams of carbohydrates daily. I have focused on consistent progression and have increased my weights on all exercises. For example, I can now bench press 175 lbs five times on my 5th set. Three months ago, I could only do 155.
I am writing you because I will be 57 years old in a month and have a fair amount of aches and pains. I love working out and lifting weights. My basement is my oasis! You write wonderful articles about the aging bodybuilder. You mention looking younger than you are and feeling younger. I am told quite often that I look very fit and youthful.
As far as I can tell, I have gained 5lbs of lean muscle by sticking to my nutrition plan and taking the following supplements:
- Muscle Synergy
- Mass Aminos
- Ultra 40 Beef Liver
My main question is, from your experience, do you think I can continue to gain muscle with fewer workouts and less volume?
Sorry for the long email. Thank you for your time and advice. I love your products and newsletters. ~ Dave
Here’s Roger’s reply.
Here's how you can reduce your workout and still increase your strength. It’s very similar to the program I’m currently following.
On 3x5-7 exercises, use this same scheme: 1-2 warmups, then 5, 5, and 5-7. Don't always try to get 7 reps on the last set. 1st week might be 5, 5, 5; 2nd week 5,5,6; 3rd week 5, 5, 6 and 4th week 5,5,7. Don't rush the progression.
Monday: Chest, Biceps & Triceps
Bench Press 2 warmup sets, 5 reps, then 3 reps, with your working weight (let's say 165 lbs). Do 2 sets of 5, and on the 3rd set, try for 7 reps. If you make the 7th rep in perfect form, add 2.5 or 5 lbs the next bench workout.
BB Curl & Close Grip Bench Press
Semi Straight Leg Deadlift 3x6-8
Calf Raise 3x20
Ab Exercise 3x15-20
Saturday: Back & Shoulders
Shoulder Press 3x5-7
Bent Row 3x5-7
Lateral Raise (optional) 3x6-8
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.
All the best,
