It is unfortunate that I cannot give a detailed example of why I am stopping this program by showing you the actual list of the workouts and diet, but I will try to explain the best I can why this program is 100% crap. I’ll try to do this in a short summary below, and then I’ll explain in better Read more
I apologize for not posting my review and progress during week three. Between work and being busy exploring new events and activities more than I have previously, I barely had any time left to post my review. Instead, here I am, when I have officially completed week 4 of STS. Therefore, what I’m planning to do is an overview of both week 3 and week 4, going over what I consider the most important parts.

Here I am, two weeks into the program and about to start my third week of STS (or S2S like some like to call it). So, what has been different about this second week? Not much really, other than reps per set and of course decreasing my carbohydrates. While the first 3 days of training the reps range decreased, allowing me to go heavier on each exercise, during the remaining 3 days of the week the reps increased, which of course, had me using less weight to meet the reps goals. One of my concerns was how my body would react to eating 93.6 g of carbs less a day, but my body reacted nice to it, not making feel with less energy. Read more
It has been a week already since I started Shortcut to Shred, and I won’t deny I was a little intimidated by the sudden caloric increase in my diet. This morning, just as I did last Wednesday as soon as I woke up, I took my new set of pictures, got on the scale, measured myself and measured my body fat % using my very cheap caliper.
Before I continue to compare today’s measurements with last week’s, I will talk a little about my experience during this first week when it. Read more

If you haven’t seen or heard of Anthony Perez from TEAM ATRAIN on Instagram, you’re probably haven’t been following the right fitness accounts.This guy is a competitor, a beast, has a killer body and has it all figured out.
After coming from doing different methods to get in shape and up to some level achieving great success, I realized there was one thing I was still unable to achieve, gaining mass without gaining body fat. Last year after I tore my rotator cuff and I had to stay away from the gym for 3 months, which during time, I put on some undesired weight. Emotionally it affected me that I was injured and unable to do any exercises without being in pain. Read more
The name Jim Stoppani creates controversy in the BodyBuilding.com forums like no other. For some, the guy who hides behind a Ph.D. degree and knows nothing about fitness and nutrition, who only cares about selling his supplement brand. For others, he is a fitness expert who provides useful and scientific articles and workout routines that has help people change their lives. With such mixed opinions, then why Six-Week Shortcut to Shred? Read more
Want to know how did I change my body in just 90 days as shown in the picture below?
Well, here’s the secret which is not so much of a secret.
It wasn’t until I saw a picture of myself on 2005 that I realized how overweight I was. At that point my weight was 207 lbs. While I’m 5’11”, because I had little to no muscle mass, all the extra weight was mainly body fat accumulated around my torso area.
Not until 2008 I finally decided to give P90X a try after going online and looking for success stories from people. At that time, there weren’t too many BeachBody coaches, which made it easier for me to find legit reviews and stories without the constant impression I was being pushed to buy something and sign up to become a coach too.

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog!
Last Friday night as I was going to bed I realized I only have one more week left before I finish my current workout plan. It got me thinking about what my next step would be. While I have been considering to try out some of the free plans available at BodyBuilding.com, it occurred to be that just like myself, there are many people out there hoping to find reviews on those programs, experiences, and results. In the past, I have looked up for some reviews, hoping to find someone who has taken the time to go over the program and show real results, but unfortunately I haven’t been convinced by what I have read.
While I’m not a professional in the fitness and nutrition field, I believe I have achieved a lot during the time I have been actively working out, whether it has been at home or at the gym. Because of that, my passion for fitness and honesty when it comes about what I believe it works or it doesn’t from my perspective, I’ve decided to create this blog and provide others with a better review as I experience each fitness program.
While I am aware each individual is different, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, age or health condition, and results will be different from person to person, I will never claim that my experiences are applicable to everybody the same way. My goal is to give you a basic idea and hopefully motivate you to either try the program or look for a different and better option for you.
I hope all of you get to enjoy my posts, like them, subscribe to my blog and share it with anyone you believe could benefit from it.
