Top 10 Posts on Kinobody & My Fitness Story

In the summer 2013 I reached a point where I was completely disoriented about fat loss and muscle growth. I had read so much conflicting information online I didn’t know what to believe anymore.

I remember I followed celebrity workouts at the time. One day I googled “Ryan Reynolds body workout” because I was impressed by his physique in the movie Green Lantern. I clicked on an article called Build a Body like Ryan Reynolds.

Who would’ve thought that click would shape the next few years of my life. That was when I discovered Kinobody.

I was super impressed by Greg’s condition in the video at the end of that article and I thought this guy was worth listening to. After reading a few more posts from him I was hooked. Each article was related to the other ones. Instead of contradicting each other, the pieces of information fitted together. The more I read, the clearer the big picture became.

Kinobody was the first complete fitness philosophy I came across. I loved it.

I got very excited and I applied for Greg’s coaching service. This was my email:

Look what stupid things I was writing. I thought fruits were not carbs…

Anyway, this was Greg’s reply:

At that time I was flat broke. I didn’t have $360 for coaching. I didn’t reply to his email.

I knew I had to learn what to do on my own. So I read every post on Kinobody, watched all his videos and listened to almost all his podcasts. Guess what? Everything I needed was available in the free content.

Here were my results following Greg’s free advice for a month:

What articles did I read?

Let me share the articles I read and those I consider best on Kinobody right now:

1. The Beach Ripped Series

These 4 articles were ALL I needed to learn how to get lean. I was blown away. Greg covers all the basics for fat loss: setting macros, how to count macros, how to do cardio, and how to coax your body to single digit body fat.

If you want to get lean, look no further. Read this.

2. The Kinobody Fasting Guide

Intermittent Fasting is probably the most powerful tool you can use to make cutting easier. When I heard Greg purposefully skipped breakfast every day I thought it was weird. But then I tried it. And I never looked back.

IF allows you to eat big meals while cutting. Fat loss becomes 10 times easier! Definitely check this out.

3. How to do Intermittent Fasting & Never get Hungry 

Pushing your first meal later into the day makes the biggest difference for satiety and satisfaction. But you can take it even further.

How many meals you have and how you spread macros in those meals can take your diet from “alright” to “I f***ing love this!!” Greg mastered this. Read that article.

4. The Kinobody Warrior, Greek God and Superhero Physique 

This post was very inspiring for me. It clarified that what I was looking for in the beginning was the Warrior physique. I knew what direction to take with my nutrition and training.

5. Cracking the Code to a Good Looking and Athletic Physique

After I read this, my fitness goals were finally clear. I knew what I needed to do to look great. It’s all about maintaining a narrow waist and getting stronger on key exercises. This is a must-read.

6. Lifting 3 Days per Week & The Key to Maximum Gains 

Greg’s training approach is focused on the upper body – developing wide shoulders, masculine chest, V shaped torso and clearly defined abs. This is the look that most guys are after.

I built my physique with precisely this strategy.

7. The Power and Effectiveness Behind Reverse Pyramid Training

This training style is a game changer.

With RPT you’ll be doing your heaviest set first while you’re completely fresh. This means being able to handle heavy weights with more ease and power than ever before.

8. The Art of Building Strength while Getting Lean

When I read this I realized that I needed to both lose fat and gain muscle and strength to reach my goal physique. If you start from a body fat percentage of ~12-15%, using these training strategies you’ll be able to gain strength and muscle while leaning down.

9. How to Bust Through a Strength Plateau

When you’ve been advancing on the same exact movement for several weeks, inevitably you will hit a plateau. By changing up the variation of an exercise, you continue to build the same movement pathway and muscle groups, without getting stuck.

10. Key Strategies to Maintain a Low Body Fat Year Round

When I got lean for the first time, I found it very difficult to stay there. I felt hungry all the time and thought about food all day.

In this podcast Greg and a special guest share what you need to do to make staying below 10% body fat easy and enjoyable.

    Hey Radu,

    I’m a recent subscriber of yours on YouTube. Love your videos. I must have binge watched your whole chandle within 24 hours lol.

    I am new to weight training and I had a question regarding training splits. I’ve decided to run a Push / Pull routine for a couple of weeks. I’ve heard that training a body part twice a week is great for strength and muscle gains. I just wanted to know if the way that I have set up my split may be over training.

    Here’s how my split is currently set up Monday, Wednesday and Fridays are Push Days. And Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday are Pull days (training body parts 3 times a week). Would this be negatively impacting my gains or considered over training?

    Salut, Radu!
    Cred ca incep sa stagnez la tractiunile la biceps(nu am mai crescut primul set de vreo 2 saptamani), urmez GGP si momentan am trecut la specializare picioare/piept. Crezi ca as putea sa schimb pe tractiuni la spate?
    Si ma lamuresti te rog care cum sunt corect, chin ups si pull ups?
    Multumesc!

      Salut!

      Da, schimba-te pe pullups. Chinups sunt cele in care palmele sunt indreptate spre tine iar pullups sunt cele in care palmele sunt indreptate spre exterior.

      Salut. O buna metoda se treci de un platou la tractiuni este sa cresti greutatea si sa executi doar partea negativa a miscarii, cat mai lent ( sari sau te urci pe un scaun sa eviti prima parte a miscarii). Apoi ai doua subvariante: 1. sa faci un set de “negative” de 3-6 repetari (asta ar fi setul de lucru). 2. sa faci o singura repetare negativa, dupa care sa te intorci la greutatea la care ai stagnat plus cel mai mic increment (0.5-1.25kg) si sa incerci un set de lucru. Poti bineinteles sa treci de la chinup la pullup, dar vei avea surpriza ca nu poti adauga nici pe departe aceeasi greutate pt ca nu esti obinuit cu noua miscare, nu pentru ca muschii isi ating limita. Eu prefer sa nu schimb exercitiile, doar sa ma joc cu range of motion. Spor! Bonus tip. Fii atent ce muschi cedeaza primii la exercitiul la care stagnezi si cauta un exercitiu auxiliar pentru grupa respectiva. de cele mai multe ori gripul e de vina, ai putea sa folosesti ceva de genul captain of crush

    Radu ..well done Greg should be very proud of you .. Only a good student can be a good teacher and u certainly are both .. Keep up the good work ?

    Hello Radu,
    Thanks for your great videos & advises.
    I wonder how could someone do intermittent fasting if training hours are am in the morning(7am, 8am, 9am). Remain fasted post workout till -lets say- 1pm would be disastrous for muscle mass gains.

    Thanks
