How I Became Stronger After an Injury and Transitioned to Strength & Conditioning Coach
Usually I’d start with some strength work to begin with, followed by some accessory work, then some sort of metcon/hiit burner to finish. Strength work consists of compound movements (squats, deadlifts, bench press, cleans, snatches, etc).

How Competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Took Me Around the World and Back Home Again
I train the same way all year and I try to make my weight stable. For Brasilian Jiu Jitsu competitions I have to usually cut 3 kilos wich is really easy adding great rolling rounds, a bit of more cardio, more hiit or metcon wods and cutting the extra food, like Nutella from my diet.

How I Work as an Actor, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach and CrossFit Trainer
Well, the cool thing about CrossFit is that it is intentionally constantly varied! So my training looks different from day to day.

I'm an IFBB Bikini Competitor and a Personal Trainer. This is How I Eat, Train and Stay Healthy
I look at training as a non-negotiable part of week. At the moment, my training consists of 4-5 days of resistance based gym work, with the occasional metabolic conditioning style workout. For most of the general population, I find that the best workout or style of training is the one that they can stay committed and consistent with. Your goals, your lifestyle and your attitude towards fitness will dictate which training approach is best suited. For me however, I find that I need to dedicate workouts to a particular muscle group for that to grow. So at the moment my training looks like this:

I Own a Gym. This Is How I Combine My Own Training with Training Clients
My first exercise of the day is usually directed to strength training, followed by 2 or 3 exercises for hypertrophy and finally some kind of Metcon (metabolic conditioning) or core work.
