Adonis Transformation Contest Schedule for 2016

The 12 week contest only shows the small window of time at the end of their transformation.

The 12 week contest only shows the small window of time at the end of their transformation.

Many of you have been waiting for next year’s schedule of contests.

 

Here’s the schedule:

 

Jan 11th – April 11th

Next Contest Date is TBD

 

 

There is NO DEADLINE within those dates to enter.  You can enter your before and after pictures ANY TIME during those windows.  Obviously the earlier you enter your before pictures and the later you enter your after pictures will give you the biggest opportunity for change to happen.  It’s hard enough for any of us to produce a change in just 12 weeks.

We want this experience to be as stress free and as fun as possible for you.  That’s why there is no fee to join.  All Adonis customers who have never placed in a previous contest can enter.

If you have placed in a previous contest and want to enter again, you can get featured in the “Cover Model” category.  No prizes are awarded except you get to show off how superbly you have maintained a beautiful shape with the AGR program.

 HOLD THE ROPE!

Every year we have transformation contests in which the Top 10 transformation contestants are recognized for their achievement in staying committed to their fitness goals.

All these contestants have one thing in common. No matter how tough it became throughout their transformation, they did one thing — they held the rope!  What is “holding the rope?” Imagine that you are hanging from the edge of a cliff with a drop of twenty thousand feet. The only thing between you and a fall to your death is a rope, with the person of your choice on the other end. That person on the other end is the AGR system which includes our awesome community members.  When the going gets tough, you can rest assured that we have the guts to pull you to safety.  Whether it be a clarification with nutrition or a mental stumbling block which is overcome by encouragement, motivation, and/or AGR coaching.   Rest assured, all you have to do is “Hold The Rope!”

You see, the person that holds the rope when the going gets tough is a winner. When you’ve had a long day at work and choose to go to the gym afterwards that is a “winning” decision.  If you are frustrated and have lost the willpower to track your calories come and visit with some of the members in the AGR community.

In a matter of speaking, they will tell you they have been where you are, just “hold the rope — let it burn but don’t let go!”

Win or lose, remember that your transformation is a personal achievement and you should be very proud of your accomplishment.

In a previous post, I discussed the Four Key Ingredient necessary in order to become “Photo-Shoot Ready” on command.

Those ingredients are:

1. Conditioning

2. Posing

3. Tanning

4. Photography/Lighting

Keeping these concepts in mind will help you capture some amazing images of your new & improved physique.

In conclusion, to all my brothers in Iron, I hope you’re enjoying living the Adonis Lifestyle and to those contestants in AT18, come November 23rd, I look forward to congratulating you on your transformation!

The 18th Adonis Transformation Contest starts TODAY!

The 18th Adonis Transformation contest (AT-18) starts today!

The 18th Adonis Transformation contest (AT-18) starts today!

What do all of these former Adonis contestants have in common?

When most of us started the Adonis program we were looking for one thing, “RESULTS!” More importantly, results that mattered.  Not how much weight you could bench or how many pounds of “so-called mass” you could gain.  Who knew that amazing results could be delivered in a simple formula known as the Adonis Golden Ratio.

Checkout the winners of our previous contests.

No matter how many times you have told yourself I will make a positive change towards my fitness goals…this time CAN BE DIFFERENT!

Don’t sell yourself short.  You too are capable. No matter what you look like in the mirror now, tell yourself you want to be included in that Top 10 list of “Who’s Next?”

Here’s what John Barban said in a recent email:

The tipping point… the time when you look in the mirror and can say “I can do this”.

Or the moment where you fall victim to an excuse, avoid taking action on what you really want… settling back to old habits… and struggling  for the rest of the year.

Right now, another Transformation contest has begun. And many of your Adonis brothers are committed to making a real transformation in their fat loss goals.

Whether you are doing a contest or not… there is one EDGE you can gain to ensure you possess the muscular, ripped body you’ve dreamed of.

That edge is: getting coached by one of my hand-picked expert coaches. Many of the coaches have been through inspiring transformations themselves. They understand what it TRULY takes to transform your mind and body.

Now hiring a personal Adonis Coach is not cheap by any means.

It will most likely be the most intense 12 weeks of your life. You will be held accountable for your actions and your goals. Now you may be thinking you won’t have time for that.

Nonsense.

Did you know that the majority of your Adonis brothers who wisely get coaching are usually the ones who work INSANE hours… or have a hectic home life with wife & kids?

With coaching you get the strategic shortcuts, and incredible motivation… and they are personally dialed right into your hectic life.

The men who get coaching, some are flat out beginners… brand new to Adonis… others are more advanced… and they finally want to reveal the body they desire.

The main thing is… they stopped sitting around… and fully committed to an exclusive one-on-one experience to get their bodies looking better than they ever dreamed possible.

If you want to look in the mirror tomorrow morning… and smile because you KNOW 2015 is the year your body comes out looking amazing then go here now:

>>>Transform Your Body With An Adonis Coach <<<

Best,

JB

Then Vs. Now: Coaches’ Corner w/ Jason Haynes

Today’s post is our latest installment of a new series called the “Coaches Corner.”  Our Adonis Transformation Coaches will share their knowledge, experience, and best practices to help ensure your successful transformation.  To continue the series, our topic  comes from none other than Adonis Legend,  Jason Haynes.

 

Then vs now

AGR System Development: 2007 to 2015

 

Today’s post was inspired by some guys on the Adonis Forums who were curious as to some of my thoughts on the state of the AGR Systems these days, I began to think back to when I first began AGR…some time around 2007, if my memory serves.

Just the topic of this blog makes me feel like an old-timer…lol.

 <in my old raspy “Grandpa” voice> 

“You youngsters think it’s so bad now…well, let me tell ya somethin’:  When I started on AGR, it was called AI, and we didn’t even have a nutrition calculator…we had to do research and actually work towards finding our caloric intake.  We only had three programs…way before the specific categories and paths that you have now.   Yep, Eat-Stop-Eat and AI…that’s all we had…and we were grateful, dagnabit!“

 

Ugh…but old man-reminiscent ranting aside, the above statement is true, nonetheless.

The AGR Systems have come a VERY long way since I started back before Adonis Transformation 1 even saw the light of day.

 

A Stroll Down Memory Lane:

It’s been several years and millions of brain cells ago, but I do (kind of) remember the initial program:  Adonis Index 1.0…yes, 1.0.  There were three categories…Build, Burn, and Build and Burn.  They were designed to do what they were named.  Three RAGE workouts existed.

 

Adonis Index Origins:  How I began my journey into the Adonis Lifestyle.

Adonis Index 1.0 : How I began my journey into the Adonis Lifestyle.

 

That’s it.  No extra workouts, no booster series (much less the advanced booster series), no Category 1,2 and 3.  And no nutrition calculator.

Somewhere around AI 2.0 we got a chat forum introduced which was a typical phpBB forum (I guess that’s what it’s called) with bare basics…I honestly don’t remember pictures being posted but I figure we posted pics.  I can name maybe 10 other guys on that forum…but there were only 5 or so that were on daily (who were the ones to make big changes, btw, but that’s another story).

AI 3.0 is when big things started to happen, though, and this train really picked up steam.  We got introduced to such things like MBF (Muscle Building Foundation), ATX, IXP, the Gauntlet…advanced boosters!!  We got one new Rage workout, too.

 

AI Rage 3.0:  The beginnings of something special.

Rage Workout Series circa. 2010: The beginnings of something special.

Anabolic Again was first introduced (not an AI Product, persay, but a great program developed by Brad Pilon).

Honestly, I don’t recall when several things fell into the treasure chest that is now called (or associated with) the Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR)….things like Covert Nutrition, The Anything Goes Diet, Muscle Index, etc.

Even as I’m writing this, I just KNOW I’m forgetting to mention some things…there was just so many things throughout the years.

There were many guidelines to follow as to what to do when, and a pluthera of podcasts to listen to.

Anabolic Again Month Two: This was a Beast of Workout — Most Memorable!

 

Things I wish we had “Way Back Then”

 

 

AGR nutrition Calculator

AGR Nutrition Calculator

 

 

The nutrition calculator is a game changer and to the best of my knowledge there is nothing else like it out there.  Back in the day, we had to “best guess” our nutrition….take a dozen or so online calculations for our BMR or RMR, average them and then tweak for our personal situation.  It was not a small time spent in research, calculation, and tweaking.  These nutritional calculators often had a range of up to 1000 calories between the lowest and highest numbers!!  Then factor in all the other things (ie:  “how does this particular website calculate ‘intense workout?’” some calculators didn’t figure in all the necessary metrics, etc) and we had somewhere to begin…but it often took WEEKS to nail it down.

(Side note:  John Barban even told me that I, and others like me, were his guinea pigs in developing the nutrition calculator….which used to, and still does, make me smirk).

Now, we have the Nutrition Calculator.  Just plug in a few numbers and get going.  And as all the guys doing the AGR systems have the same goals, we don’t have to worry about the logistics behind other calculators/websites.  Now, while it is true that there is ALWAYS a period of adjusting to an individual’s needs and situation, it is not NEARLY as long or drawn out as before…and certainly not all the work (on my part) as it used to be.

 

AGR Reloaded: The Complete AGR System at your finger tips!

AGR Reloaded: The Complete AGR System at your finger tips!

 

I also wish we had the “complete system” that is AGR these days…it’s all laid out for you.  If you want to do it for yourself, you can do so, but if you want a specific “guided path,” that’s available these days too!

 

immersion-advanced-growth-shoulder-specialization-part-1

Immersion Content: Advanced Growth Series

 

Advanced Boosters:  Yes, we had them around AI 3.0, but they were in addition to the base program…as in:  “do 4 days of AI and then add in 2 days of these boosters.”  Nowadays, they are a COMPLETELY different animal altogether:  the boosters are complete programs in themselves!!  Oh, how I wish I had those “back in the day!”

 

How Do You Cross A Minefield? Walk Carefully Behind Your Coach!

 

 

The Coaching program, which I am privileged to be a part of, is a HUGE thing that lots of guys could have benefited from.  I was blessed to have John Barban as my coach (back in the day when there was just a few of us on the system), and I cannot speak enough of the benefits of having a guide to help and encourage a trainee during the process!  We even have several coaches, so if one of us has a story or background that clicks with you, you can even request one of us, specifically.

Conclusion:

It has been my privilege to have been around AGR throughout the years…and to see its evolution into what it is now:  a Complete System that leaves the guesswork out of it.  It’s flexible if you want it to be, but if you want something all ready to be used, there is a roadmap that has been made over the years and with hundreds of men testing it and accomplishing great results.  

I do not know what John and the crew have in mind for the next phase of the AGR Evolution, but I do believe that the system will continue to get better and better.

Until next time.

Train hard, train smart.
