My name is Joe Thomas. I am a top ranked national NPC bodybuilder, a professional fitness and advertising model, an actor and a chef
I train 6 days per week in the off-season, and 7 days per week during contest prep. I train one body part per day, heavy as possible with great form for about 8 -12 reps. I really concentrate on the muscle and use “TUT” .. (Time under tension)
When trying to gain lean muscle … most people under eat. I find that 99% of the time the problem is not eating enough …even when they think they do. I have them keep track of exactly what they eat throughout the day …then it’s clear to them that they weren’t even close.
When trying to lose weight …I first would have them check their intake of calories through liquids. Most people don’t realize how many empty calories they are consuming from liquids. Examples: Regular soda, Sugar in their coffee/tea, Gatorade, Fruit juices, etc.
I was at the Olympia Expo in Las Vegas. I had chance to leave my booth to go get lunch and walked right by the Powerful Yogurt Booth. I’m a big fan of Yogurt so I had to go back and check it out. After I sampled it, I kept sneaking back for more samples and to find out where I could get it for myself.
What I love how Powerful Yogurt products are a high in protein, no added refined sugars, and have an amazing texture and taste to go with the nutrition.
I have several favorites within the PY product family:
Yogurt: Plain, Apple Cinnamon, Maple, and Strawberry
Yogurt + plus: Lemon Chia
Bars: Yogurt Cream and PB&J
Drinks: Vanilla Maple & Chocolate
My idea of a killing weekend is hanging out with friends at a big event and not caring about what, and how much I’m eating!! …lol …something like that.
