You Don’t Need Different Genes. Just a Different Regimen.
Meet your Dream-Bodybuilding Workout Calendar.
A smartphone fitness app delivers my signature workouts to you. This interactive app supports you during your workouts. It also facilitates messaging between you and me.
It’s the same app I use for my own workouts.
It saves your workout details and displays them at-a-glance the next time you approach the same exercise.
The app also makes it easy to archive and juxtapose your progress photos, body measurements, and more. (You’ll take your own measurements with a simple tailor’s tape.)
In addition to each week’s weightlifting, your calendar provides supplemental warmups, abdominal work, and cardio.
Unique workouts are scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Within a given phase, you repeat Monday’s workout every Monday, and so on.
Want a different workout cadence? I can move your schedule back or forward by a day or two.
Each phase name is a double entendre. Each name reflects the sequence of steps I’ve walked in life. (Maybe you, too.) But: each phase name also encapsulates its specific physiological focus.

Destabilize your weightlifting by using “landmine” exercises. These dynamic lifts use a barbell with weight added only to one end. The other end is anchored to the floor.
Enhance your aesthetics while continuing to address and prevent misalignments.
Ignite your body’s three energy systems in unison.
Trigger a fat loss cascade.
Shrink gaps between your body and that of classic bodybuilders.
Magnify muscles’ definition & density. Combine unordinary movements with time-tested lifting staples.
“Are certain phases for building muscle, and others for leaning out?”
Not really. Each phase supports both muscle gain and fat loss. The results you achieve are determined by your diet.
The exception is Phase IX, Synthesis, which prioritizes leaning out. You can delay or skip this phase if your exclusive goal is muscle gain.
“What if I fall behind or travel?”
I can adjust your calendar whenever needed. So, you won’t ever miss out, or feel overwhelmed. There’s no such thing as falling behind in DreamBody. You’ll complete your curriculum in the exact timeframe you’re meant to.
If you need to travel during Phases II-X, you’ll still have access to Phase I, Home. It can be completed with little-to-no equipment, anywhere in the world.
“What happens after the last phase?”
Your calendar will automatically refresh. You’ll build upon the foundation from your first year. Much like how a prize-winning wedding cake is built up, tier after tier.
As you begin to repeat your program, you’ll see the weights and reps you used in the past. Progress yourself with one or more of the following mechanisms:
– Heavier weight
– Slower lifting pace
– Greater range of motion
– More repetitions (within the prescribed rep range)
This’ll get you more ripped, and increase your muscle mass, when combined with an ideal diet.
Remember: I’ll be there, year after year, to guide you.
