Brad, the pictures of yourself on your webpage and also the guy called Andy Morgan I think are an inspiration and a source of motivation for those of us who are unable to or WANT to look like "Pro" bodybuilders. I′d be interested to know yours and Andy Morgans stats – it would be a good benchmark to aim for. What are you currently squatting and deadlifting if you don′t mind me asking?

This is Andy Morgan. The photos of me posted on Brad′s site are progression pics of my thirteen week prep for a natural bodybuilding show. I had not trained with Brad at all before this time, and was still using a high volume (zero progress) approach to training. Brad introduced me to HIT and I′ve been using it since. Before the contest prep, I would squat up to 365 for 4 reps, and these were real squats with quads parallel. Deads would be around 315 for 6 or so. My deadlifts are performed with both palms facing my body and I do not touch the weights to the floor at the bottom of the lift. I take it to about 1-2 inches from the floor and then take it back up. I have been stronger at both of these lifts in the past, but that′s where I was when the first photos were taken. I have no idea what I can squat or deadlift now because I use HIT and only squat with maybe 225 or so and dealift about the same.

Now Brad? Well he is quite a bit stronger than I. I will not speak for him, but I will tell you he can move some weight. Brad is a superb individual and I wish all at this site could meet him and find out firsthand how motivating, inspiring, and knowledgeable he is.

Andy many thanks for your response. Your demonstrated and photographically logged progress is amazing. I′d be interested to hear more about your eating habits when you were losing bodyfat for the competition. A 365 squat is shifting some weight in my opinion! Is there a reason why you squat less using HIT than when using your volume workout?

Good luck with your training.

Oh by the way, I hope at some point Brad puts those video clips of you and the other guys from his website on a dvd and puts it up for sale. I always enjoy watching deadlifting/squatting, it helps with motivation. Where else can you watch that sort of stuff? You could watch powerlifting tapes but that#′s just one rep – you don′t see someone actually using deads and squats as an exercse and taking them to failure.

The reason I squat with less whle using HIT is because I have been supersetting the squat after leg extensions. I haven′t squatted with "fresh" legs in quite some time now.

Meal plan for pre contest was pretty simple. Food consisted of chicken, oatmeal, greens, eggs, apples, and cottage cheese (in the beginning). I stuck with those foods up until about 2 weeks before contest. Then Brad made some changes for carb depletion / carb loading, and sodium reduction. I was very happy with the results, especially for being my first show. Thank you for the kind words
