This is a cool little comparison picture sent to @akashvaghela
the other day. The one on the left is before his shoot, while he was losing body fat and heading down. The pic on the right is a couple months after the shoot in his muscle building phase now. The differences are subtle, but from the circles Shiv’s drawn, you can see the changes in shape and muscle mass already developing. One of the reasons Shiv’s been able to make these improvements is from a well-disciplined ‘reverse’ period after his shoot. Instead of making the common mistake of eating everything in sight for weeks on end, he’s implemented the 80:20 rule, been more ‘flexible’ with his nutrition to accommodate for socials, and shifted his mindset to performance oriented, instead of physique only. He’s now in a position where his food intake is higher, he’s still lean and he’s now in the perfect position for a lengthy period of building muscle! We know we’ve got a lot of people coming to an end of their dieting phase, and unsure what the next stage is. If you’re in this position, have a read of the article in the BIO, where we discuss goal setting after your diet, and how to shift focus properly.
