03:24.59

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, on a five five frame and you you fill out your frame pretty well so mean you'd be. You'd be huge at 72 you'd be like a little tiny like you'd be like a taller but a little smaller Sean Clariita

christophknoll

Giant Killer You read classics Giant killer.

03:48.17

christophknoll

Yeah, which is insane for his height. You don't realize how like short that fucking is and to be that heavy on stage is crazy I mean I was I was less than that immense physique grained out a lot of fat to lose still but I was less than that even and I'm.

03:58.34

Chuy Gomez

Over. Let's just screw that. Ah.

04:07.78

christophknoll

I got like eight nine inches on them. You know so like that's fucking wild. But um I was talking to Brandon who's now my barber and he he he can go up to like two thirty nine I think in men's physique or something which is like just fucking massive I think what is I think he's like six four or something like that but 6 3 6 4

04:19.40

Chuy Gomez

Um, that's why both.

04:27.39

christophknoll

But like that's enormous. He was saying that. Ah, last time he was on stage he was like 152 or something so in that ballpark so like he had. He's able to put on ah another over like £20 of actual tissue.

04:33.53

Chuy Gomez

Um, so.

04:37.40

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, and us bad makes for good off season mean take 2 years off if you come back with a significant like whole different package.

04:48.34

christophknoll

Yeah, you bring another like £15 to the stage. It'll look like a completely different person that's wild. But um I was the prep going how you feeling right now being like four weeks out now and another seven weeks out how you feeling how's food energy all that.

05:04.46

Chuy Gomez

So starting a prep off I think we started like actually prepping like the cut and phase of prep fifteen fifteen and eight week fifteen and eighteen weeks out and um I felt good.

05:15.70

christophknoll

A.

05:20.47

Chuy Gomez

Course you initial prep Whatever foods still hot and I was feeling good and energized and nothing like this is by far the easiest prep so far I've had my far easiest um, like mentally physically everything just we just work it.

05:29.19

christophknoll

Yeah.

05:38.54

Chuy Gomez

And then ah just like the last week. My energy is starting to come down. Um, so now I'm starting to fill it like my energy wise but like I'm constantly tired throughout the day. Also my work schedule doesn't help.

05:38.90

christophknoll

Ah.

05:43.30

christophknoll

Yeah.

05:55.99

Chuy Gomez

I mean get off at two a M So wow.

05:56.52

christophknoll

Is that when you consistently get off because I can never tell when you're actually like like because you I feel like you train at different times that during the day unless you're just posting photos at random times. But.

06:01.39

Chuy Gomez

So.

06:09.28

Chuy Gomez

No so schedule. It's an a b schedule so like for three weeks I'll work Thursday to Sunday and then in flip and then I work Monday to Thursday so every other month I have like weekends off, um.

06:24.67

christophknoll

Gotcha.

06:25.39

Chuy Gomez

But it's four PM to 2 a regardless of what days I'm working.

06:30.26

christophknoll

Gotcha. So for three weeks so basically regardless you're four days on three days off essentially but you're working 4 to 2 you said right? Okay, yeah, it can be a lot especially in prep and.

06:34.50

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, so mention that work and um and prep. It's I mean it's not the hardest thing but it mean it has a little challenge because you could get stuck with something and you're like trying to get your mail in or whatever. So everybody who works like 9 to 5 s and saying all their stress levels is this and that but you know.

06:57.33

christophknoll

If.

07:06.69

Chuy Gomez

Um, constantly like getting into foot chase high have priority calls. You know people getting stabbed is like I yeah your stress level might be high but you know this different kind of stress I got to go through but um, yeah means it's good though prep right now is is starting to it also almost yesterday still feel good. But.

07:10.40

christophknoll

Wow. Oh yeah, for sure. Yeah.

07:26.76

Chuy Gomez

I'm starting to feel it like energy wise but like mentally emotionally like everything I feel good Gen Gym pumps are still good. So they they're going like the pumps are going a little faster now. But I mean this they're so good.

07:30.92

christophknoll

Yeah.

07:39.67

christophknoll

Yeah, what's your ah like Salt intake right now like you guys still fomenting salt at all. Are you just kind of like just going as whatever.

07:48.20

Chuy Gomez

Um, um, not not really saw Sodium Salt and take go at the moment I Just whatever I eat my flus I saw some up of course. But other than that' I'm not counting my sodium right now.

07:52.41

christophknoll

I.

07:58.89

christophknoll

Yeah, okay, yeah, that's that was something we had to implement pretty quick into my prep was was supplementing salt in just because the lack of electrolytes that I was getting but um, you're you're not nearly as like.

08:03.71

Chuy Gomez

Yeah.

08:10.66

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

08:16.97

christophknoll

From what I've seen and what you've talked about your body's not as nearly as picky as mine is when it comes to food I mean 1 carb 1 gram of carb certain prep like I'd blow up so supplementing in salt was like that was my that was my pump was literally just half a tea ah half a teaspoon or half a tablespoon I forgot what it was of a.

08:21.95

Chuy Gomez

Um, know.

08:26.97

Chuy Gomez

Um, and and off but.

08:36.28

christophknoll

Ah, salt before my workout that was my palm and it worked well at least for me but that was especially once we took out artificial flavors and it couldn't have like pre-workout anymore that shit sucked. Oh it was so bad and then like I didn't realize it until we took out artificial flavors but like.

08:46.50

Chuy Gomez

Oof That's the worst. Yeah, that's the worst.

08:53.46

christophknoll

Every coffee I drink is artificially flavored so I had to like resort to like just plain just regular ass black coffee and I feel like equal in shit in there. So I had to take that out and then Stevia I Know your big fan I think of Stevia right? Yeah see I can't stand it. It's like.

09:01.93

Chuy Gomez

Um, more probably.

09:08.60

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

09:12.89

christophknoll

It's got this weird as taste to it's like oregano like I love oregano but some people just can't stand it. You know so that's me with Stevie I just can't stand stevia so like trying to transition from equal or like sweet and low or something to stevia just was not going to work I just it just tastes like shit.

09:26.19

Chuy Gomez

Oh my girlfriends says the same thing whenever we get like coffee or something I like it put some stev on it'll be better like no you I could taste the Stevie I like taste it I can't taste it I mean it just taste good. It is as label.

09:31.43

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah.

09:36.71

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, it's that's exactly how it is like it's got its own flavor. You know, no matter what I put Stevie in I could taste it. That's why like I'm so glad. I think didn't you give me like a serving of the yeah bola gains or whatever it was a while back? Yeah, so that's that's one of the like biggest things that made me realized I didn't like Stevie is because I tried that and I'm like why does this taste terrible compared to ricecing grinds and it's because they use stevia and they use a shits out of stevia too.

09:51.29

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, you're like it's too sweet or something.

10:09.19

christophknoll

So I got like halfway through and it's like I can't do it anymore. Um, but it does have its own flavor.

10:09.26

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, because yeah because you got like eighty grams of it so that was like a good portion. It has like a big bow. Yeah.

10:19.39

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, it's a good chunk I mean right now I'm like sixty grams of ah cream of rice prior to my workout which is already a decent amount but like yeah 80 was a lot I got legit probably like halfway through and I was just like dude I'm just going to throw the fuck up in about a second. But.

10:27.79

Chuy Gomez

A fire happen.

10:34.47

christophknoll

Some people say that about equal and sweet and low and shit like asparttain like they some people say they aspertain has a flavor but I can't taste it at all or just taste sweet Ta So I'm blessed there at least and I get to enjoy Oregano Unlike some people who think it tastes like soap. So.

10:38.30

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

10:49.23

Chuy Gomez

O regan all yeah I've never thought about Regan um.

10:51.64

christophknoll

Yeah, it's it's Weird. It's like a genetic thing I guess or something how it's like a Rio specifically it either tastes good or it tastes like soap like it tastes like you're eating hand soap. Um, but I got to genetics to ah allow for me to enjoy a Rikin O and some good pico de gallo and shit. So Um. But is that do you guys? Do you think you're going to end up pulling artificial flavors at all.

11:16.90

Chuy Gomez

Ah, yeah, hope you'll probably pull. Um, they'll probably pull my protein powder actually this week I just send him my update check-ins this morning. Um, still waiting on a response in that. But um, yeah.

11:22.99

christophknoll

Earth.

11:32.60

christophknoll

Yep.

11:33.00

Chuy Gomez

He's most likely gonna drop food a little bit more cardio may go up or may say the same depending. But yeah I think four weeks out he kind of want to switch the protein powders out and just do whole foods but but then about maybe.

11:46.25

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah.

11:50.68

Chuy Gomez

I would say about ten days out here. Tell me to stop taking pre-workout and just do coffee but like as for the sauces. Oh he doesn't really mention anything about that until like you know, two days out he's like I just used mustard or you know hot sauce.

11:57.68

christophknoll

Ah.

12:05.36

christophknoll

Yeah.

12:09.71

Chuy Gomez

Instead of your you know other sauces that have like Jehus or um, the flavor gangs you know, low calorie sauces but did that that is literally my but prep save like if it my bowlla games or them sauces like.

12:13.90

christophknoll

Damn home you spent some money on in full flavor gain shit hey.

12:29.80

Chuy Gomez

I Don't think I could do prep like I don't think I could do it. It'd be too miserable.

12:31.51

christophknoll

Yeah I just I can't justify the price. It's just I'd have to be bringing in some serious money for me to be like yeah $15 for twelve ounces a sauce is totally worth it. Just can't do it.

12:44.17

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, it's ah it's It's worth it for me I could just buy you know in my head I'm just fine it. It's probably not just fine but I'll make your way.

12:47.79

christophknoll

Um, yeah.

12:50.25

christophknoll

Yeah, but I mean you're on some good sauces during your out your bulk season your off season for sure I was so jealous of that because you sent me the photo of your food and I was just like in the middle of my prep I'm like fuck I've had nothing but mustard for like six weeks straight like this like.

12:58.76

Chuy Gomez

Um, and I.

13:05.90

Chuy Gomez

Yeah know I can't do that. Yeah I keep all sauces and all that stuff and until out by peak week or so and then we'll start cutting back some but I pre prework and all that probably be like yeah the beginning of peak week or just before and then.

13:07.99

christophknoll

Sort of a bitch.

13:13.79

christophknoll

You.

13:21.72

christophknoll

Yeah.

13:23.55

Chuy Gomez

Just do black coffee preworkout and then that's whenever we'll start like monitoring sodium. Not really like monitoring but he's like keep it consistent and then because I mean like the day before the show two days one day out a show day will do a bump with sodium just to bring out. You know the bestelary and.

13:30.15

christophknoll

If.

13:37.89

christophknoll

A.

13:43.14

Chuy Gomez

The pumps and all that stuff.

13:43.89

christophknoll

Yeah I remember like I think it was three days out or four days out we started increasing salt and take by the time it was the day before the show especially excalibur I think I was like almost half a teaspoon of salt with every meal like it was so much fucking salt.

13:57.25

Chuy Gomez

Are.

14:03.14

christophknoll

But then the morning of the show I was cramping like a motherfucker like my quas are just killing me I don't even I don't even need to like contract them at all if I just stretch my legs out. They'll just cramp the fuck up so we had to get some electrolytes in. But yeah I mean Salt and take really made the blood flow a lot better at least for me. But.

14:05.83

Chuy Gomez

In fucking.

14:23.24

christophknoll

Pre-work out I think of artificial flavors you pulled like I think it was two weeks out we pulled off artificial flavors and I think he said to take out pre-workout like three weeks out or something something like that. So there's a while I wasn't taking pre-work out. Yeah, it sucked. Um, and.

14:26.22

Chuy Gomez

For help.

14:34.60

Chuy Gomez

Um, this way to see for me. Yeah, so my power.

14:40.73

christophknoll

You know it's like also on top of that we pulled like long before like basically when we started prep we pulled my addera out of my system too which is like basically like an antidepressant almost for me, you know So it's like I'm feeling like depressed all the way through prep pretty much and then.

14:53.36

Chuy Gomez

Um, and.

14:58.60

Chuy Gomez

Um, there.

14:58.64

christophknoll

Pulling all this extra shit and then I can't have my like diet or like my Pepsi euros anymore and shit and then all of a sudden all my flavored coffee is gone I'm just like wow I'm literally like living off a fumes at this point I did do the math at one point I think before.

15:09.43

Chuy Gomez

Um.

15:14.63

christophknoll

I can't remember which show it was but before one of them I did the math I did it and um I did ah out how much food we were having and I was like fourteen hundred calories or something at 1 point with like literally like barely surviving. Um and I think at the time I was doing an hour a cardio day or something like that and I'm like.

15:24.49

Chuy Gomez

Um, but that's like poverty calories. Yeah.

15:34.46

christophknoll

You gotta be crazy. Do this shit when I saw that I was like dude I'm not okay like I'm not mentally there. There's no way.

15:34.75

Chuy Gomez

Ah, more. Ah.

15:40.20

Chuy Gomez

Um, well yeah, likely I that point yet I think food's still about I are having tracked it. But if I had yes should be around 2200 yeah

15:49.73

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, which is more substantial for you in comparison to you know? um like weight wise like I think I was like one ninety when I was taking in the 1400 um

16:00.42

Chuy Gomez

Um, who are.

16:07.10

christophknoll

But like you take it in 2200 now would've been like me taking in like 3000 or a little less than that during prep. So I'm very jealous I must be sick.

16:10.46

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, yeah, but um, its if I'm still always hungry this carry.

16:20.12

christophknoll

Yeah, oh for sure. Yeah especially with all your added cardio and shit too because I remember last time I saw you in the gym you do like ten fifty minutes of walking or something before working out. Um I don't know if you're doing any other cardio. Other than that. But. Now you're doing what 45 minutes post workout or something.

16:35.60

Chuy Gomez

Now so I have 40 minutes cardio in general five days a week but I split it into 30 minutes fasted and then 10 minutes after the workout just just cause I don't like doing.

16:50.48

christophknoll

Ah, and and.

16:54.17

Chuy Gomez

40 minutes straight that's that's long time.

16:54.92

christophknoll

Yeah, there is I think at one point we're doing I think it was like 60 minutes or something and I was doing it all in 1 go after my workout and Tom was like yeah, don't do that I'm like why not I'm like it's easier for me to do it that way and he's like.

17:09.15

Chuy Gomez

Um, no knowledge.

17:15.50

christophknoll

You're you're talking about like you eat you go to the gym. Let's say like an hour after you eat then you train for like an hour then you do an hour of cardio and then you drive home. He's like you're talking like three and a half hours between meals. He's like so just split it up. He's like do half fast at half post workouts like fuck fine. So that's when I started doing 30 fast data then 30 post workout by the time we hit excalibber that was it was 45 minutes fast and then 45 minutes before meal six and I'd usually end up having my postworkout meal and then meal 6 like postworkout was Mil five and then meal six was that like.

17:45.40

Chuy Gomez

Um.

17:49.72

christophknoll

Nine thirty or something so like I'd come home like the last two weeks of prep I'd come home like including peak week I'd come home and like have like maybe an hour to relax to eat and relax and then go back. Do cardio come back eat and go to bed that was my day just up cardio work train cardio eat.

17:51.52

Chuy Gomez

Um.

18:01.95

Chuy Gomez

Ah, go.

18:09.72

christophknoll

Sleep like.

18:10.72

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, that's how that's how prep is like you. You really don't have time to do anything else, especially when you get like deeper into it because you mean you're doing more cardio you're spending more time in the gym and um, you're just you're always eating.

18:15.19

christophknoll

Yeah.

18:26.55

Chuy Gomez

Every like two and a half hours so it's like it's hard to get other stuff in there. But I mean of course we could do it because you're always going to have to find a way. Um, but but yeah, it's it's difficult. So.

18:36.80

christophknoll

Yeah I also noticed I didn't have like the mental energy even to like do most shit like video games were barely in my life like I barely I like listen to a lot of books instead of reading like I Just. Didn't have the mental energy to do shit So like not to mention just the time but also just not wanting to do anything ever I was just too exhausted mentally and physically so that was that was no fun. Um, but with that being said, what's your like training split now.

18:56.22

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

19:13.57

christophknoll

Has it changed up for prep or anything.

19:15.80

Chuy Gomez

Yes, for the majority of my ah offea this pass off and the majority of the prep until think about six weeks out I switched it up I was doing push pool eggs. Um, and then i' switched it up kind of like ah a little bit more of a bro s split but it's like.

19:26.31

christophknoll

The.

19:33.27

Chuy Gomez

Ah, chest with side belt and then I do back legs essentially push pull legs and then I added um a shoulder day with arms and then another back day. And then another late day so it would be so basically it's still pushed for legs. But I added shoulders and arms as a separate day. Yeah.

19:56.65

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, yeah, mind similar to that now. So is it was it three days on one day off or was it 60 on one day off

20:05.80

Chuy Gomez

Um I do four days on one day off two days on one day off ah

20:10.80

christophknoll

Okay, gotcha that makes sense. Yeah, minds are similar. It's the the chest back legs and then it's like shoulders and then another back legs but triceps is on the chest day and then biceps is on the back day. So it's relatively similar but I'm 3 on 1 often.

20:19.53

Chuy Gomez

Um, me.

20:24.93

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, yeah.

20:29.60

christophknoll

3 on one off for that at least? um, what's your is that your desk not your training split now. Oh okay, got you.

20:33.64

Chuy Gomez

Yes, so that's what it is now it was. It was just push pull legs rest push pull ends rest. So I essentially just add an extra day into the split for the shoulders and arms.

20:46.94

christophknoll

Gotcha Okay I see now. Um and then so you're what day are you skipping cardio essentially like are you doing it only on training days or.

20:53.11

Chuy Gomez

Um, um I tend to not do cardio on my um, rest days I take I try to take complete rest days where I'm not doing cardio. No nothing just if anything I'm getting steps in but then now just trying up be lazy.

21:03.79

christophknoll

Yeah.

21:11.42

christophknoll

Gotcha So you're training before your shift then when you do train on your your days of work.

21:12.70

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, yeah days of work I'll get up about ten o'clock I'll do my fasic cardio 30 minutes then I come home eat pre-workout meal. Go show 2 gymm workout and my last 10 minutes cardio come back post workout premuff. My meals for work and they go to work.

21:34.93

christophknoll

Gotcha yeah, that makes sense. Yeah boys I feel like every single time I see a post videos and shit its always at different times and even before like your current job is just like always kind of random but at least with like the season coming up and shit you don't have to deal with the five o'clock rush for the most part.

21:42.74

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

21:52.29

Chuy Gomez

Ah, yeah.

21:52.60

christophknoll

Which is good because I was I was thinking about that the other day I was like because I think it was when you said you woke up at or you're done work at one thirty or something and I was like ah so he's not hitting that five o'clock bullshit at Golds Really Anymore for the most part.

22:04.71

Chuy Gomez

Um, now I'm usually when I'm working of course I'm usually in the gym by 12 12 thirty in the morning. So and then when I'm off when I'm not working on I try to go about 2 2 30

22:10.52

christophknoll

Is.

22:20.21

christophknoll

Yeah, that's just so yeah, at least you don't have to deal with it especially during prep like that should be annoying when you have to wait for all the machines and shit I've heard people have told me um, couple people out the gym I go to now went to Golds and they said they still know people there and ah they said that it's like.

22:21.71

Chuy Gomez

Ah.

22:25.46

Chuy Gomez

Um, do yep.

22:37.56

christophknoll

It's almost like um like you can't even walk anymore. Get so busy sometimes in the like five six o'clock rush yeah I'm I'm glad I don't have to deal with that anymore at least but I mean.

22:42.61

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah I believe it I believe it.

22:51.60

Chuy Gomez

Um, you know, um what I call us having open gym crush it crush either having so they're having a I think all week next week Monday to Friday they're having open gently going there workout for free.

22:54.49

christophknoll

Crush col as an open open gym.

23:05.72

christophknoll

I Got to check that out. Yes.

23:08.96

Chuy Gomez

I think yeah I think it's on their raw page but I seen I was like I'm had to go there before work Monday to hit some legs but.

23:16.87

christophknoll

Yeah I got a I got took that out because it's like the 45 minute drive is already hard to justify for there and then the next twenty bucks through does the train is like it's fucking expensive just to go there for one day

23:25.67

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, it is. That's why China I go maybe like once every three months or so. Ah.

23:36.45

christophknoll

yeah yeah I go over once in a while I was I almost went a couple times there. Um, but I recently but I didn't up' not feeling like it i' like I don't feel like to drive my whole training sessions like maybe an hour and takes me an hour and a half to drive there and back you know so I'm just like I'm just really not feeling it.

23:50.54

Chuy Gomez

Are.

23:54.48

christophknoll

Rather just you know by the time I drove there and drove back I could be drive to the gym train and come back and be done let alone training time. So I'm good I just I don't feel like it. But if we ever if me and my wife ever move anywhere. It's gonna be ah, hopefully closer to Statesville.

24:01.80

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

24:13.13

christophknoll

That's kind of my thing I'm like let's move a little north. Um, so I can be closer to we could theoretically she wants to stay close to work here in Huntersville but ah I was like if we move north we can stay pretty close to your work and then also I could better justify going to crush it.

24:13.67

Chuy Gomez

Hey yeah.

24:27.86

Chuy Gomez

You But I think their memberships then the memberships actually went like they increase their prices.

24:30.91

christophknoll

But and housing be cheaper.

24:38.26

christophknoll

I'm not surprised I don't remember what the pricing was on the memberships. It's just it was for me. There was the drive that I couldn't justify I think it was wasn't like 60 bucks a month or something no shot I gotta look to something look to suffer quick that's absurd.

24:44.30

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah I think that's what it was but things like a hundred or something now I think that quote I think I've heard it though. But if it is and that's phrasing.

24:58.89

christophknoll

Yeah, let me see what they got now see if I could find out there. Okay so day passes fifteen bucks so this is on their website day passes fifteen bucks um it's sixty five bucks a month for twelve months

25:09.59

Chuy Gomez

Um, so.

25:14.90

christophknoll

Or 115 for couple like 2 people family is just under one fifty but milit chain First responder is fifty five bucks a month so you'd save ten bucks a month right? there? Um, so that's pretty dope.

25:16.40

Chuy Gomez

Beautiful.

25:23.68

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, so somebody lie to me.

25:29.52

christophknoll

Yeah I mean it says with a twelve month contract um monthly memberships include additional $50 signup fee. So I guess you could spend you know one 15 the first month and then 65 after that for a month to month or something.

25:47.89

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, but.

25:49.74

christophknoll

That's what they were talking about I don't know maybe they they added that sign up fee or something but that's what their website says at least. So yeah I mean that's I think sixty sixty five is justifiable for what they got.

25:52.23

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, probably probably that's not bad. Slip are yeah hundred percent and it's a good gym just the environment not and all of it. Just.

26:08.91

christophknoll

Death.

26:11.68

Chuy Gomez

Way better than a fitness factory. Ah um, do I go there and I it just feel so awkward is everybody with their tripod If there's like a I mean what is it Alpha La or something.

26:13.45

christophknoll

Yeah, fucking damn shame that fitness factor is kind of just like falling off I feel like.

26:27.98

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, that's yeah.

26:30.89

Chuy Gomez

It's just weird I don't like that I'm not much of a big influencer type person like I like using social media to showcase like my body biddding but I'm not I don't like this influencer aspect of fitness.

26:45.43

christophknoll

Yeah, it drives me nuts and they got all the fucking microphones hooked up like the bluetooth microphones and shit now.

26:48.71

Chuy Gomez

Um, know like guess could like if you're gonna do like a video edit or something like why you're on prep like like a workout edit but like vlogging or whatever. Ah.

26:55.82

christophknoll

Yeah, oh yeah, no I mean it's the only one I could ever see like that justifies. It is someone like Sam Sulik or something like who actually has like a true following but I don't know I don't see people that I like.

27:05.80

Chuy Gomez

Are yeah.

27:13.76

christophknoll

Can tell has a true following when I when I go to gyms like that and they have rules I say like no tripods and shit apparently but it sounds like they don't give a shit depending on who you are, but it's yeah, just the pricing I Just can't I can't pay for something like that and then they like remove the like.

27:23.83

Chuy Gomez

Ah, yeah.

27:32.44

Chuy Gomez

Um, ah yeah, the the best lighting in the game and it can't even take a shirt out. Um.

27:33.72

christophknoll

You you have to wear a shirt all the time and shit so like all right we can't even do like posing now. That's cool. All right? Um, yeah, literally and then like you always like they'll call you out if you don't spray down your machines and shit now and um. I know as someone who was going there. 1 of my coworkers actually was going there and he said he paid the sixty bucks and he said he like went to the other side like 1 time for like 1 of the machines over there. And just to see like if they would say something and he got an email like the next day they're like hey we saw you on the cameras going to the wrong side. They said you do it 1 more time we're going to cancel membership I'm like that's fucking insane.

28:17.21

Chuy Gomez

Um, so they I keep track of who like who pays for one side.

28:20.98

christophknoll

Yeah I guess he's he. That's what he said I mean I don't know like the extent of the email but basically like that was the gist of the email and he said he got it after he did that because he just pays for the one side which is also bullshit too like I don't feel like you should be charging 2 prices for 2 halves the gym.

28:38.75

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, is it 1 Yes though this I never heard and like that before weird.

28:40.93

christophknoll

Like I feel like just one price for the whole thing.

28:48.79

christophknoll

Um, like I can understand if it was like so like there's Olympus which has like the machinery and then kind of like a bench and squat section for like all the power lifters because it's like a mania power liftfting gym. So I can understand if they were like oh it's. Thirty bucks I think it was like forty bucks a month month to month or something there. Theyre like oh forty bucks a month for like the bodybuilding and power 15 section. But then they have this like whole turf and like calisthenic section in the back that's like separate with a door. So like I can understand like ten more bucks a month or something to like get access to that but like another forty bucks a month for like.

29:21.72

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

29:25.12

christophknoll

Those those random key pieces on that right side at Fitness Factory just drives me fucking insane.

29:28.44

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, it's this weird I don't I don't like that concept. That's why I'll go there from time time just to work out with some of my boys that go there but other than that I would not make an effort to go there.

29:41.14

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, I think um, there's some people that go near or go there that are in the area I think like Brooks goes every once in a while um I feel like he just has a bunch of day passes that he does I can't fucking tell. But. Um, there're still elite I guess elite has like a three month free ah promo or something going on right now if you sign up, it's like the first three months or something is free or the last three months or whatever it is um is free. So that's pretty cool, but um.

30:14.47

christophknoll

Yeah, there's also there's a few more being built to I think there's like core fit is being built which is kind of like an influencer gym. Um, and then there's there's something else being built to I Forget what was called like iron iron gains or some shit um people been posting about it. Yeah.

30:19.30

Chuy Gomez

Are.

30:30.82

Chuy Gomez

Um, as in Charlotte.

30:33.80

christophknoll

They're both a core fit and the other one are both opening I think one of them said like fall this year and the other one's like early next year I think core fits early next year the other ones fall this year. But I forget what it was called I'd have to look into it. But um, people were talking about it. People were hyping it up and put on their stories of shit and I'm like what is this gym. And check it out and there's no renderings of what's going to be there like there's no other locations. It's one location and it's like 1 guy opening it I'm like why is everybody hyped for this I don't understand um at least with corit there is like a Greenville location in South Carolina and then one in Spartanburg and I think another one in between those 2 cities or something.

31:03.98

Chuy Gomez

Um, here.

31:12.80

christophknoll

Like you already have a few locations so this's like just just their fourth location opening up in Charlotte. Um, and they got like a bunch of like neon light bulbs and shit going everywhere and all these like cool colors and graffiti and whatnot. So it's going to be more influencer focused and all that like the videos that they post on their Instagram is like. Is like high quality like Tiktok shit. So yeah, yeah, for sure, we'll see how that goes but um, yeah, there's also office gym. But yeah I still go to ah I'm still going into mega flex and good value. There.

31:36.18

Chuy Gomez

Um, fast final now that's still for them I'm sure they make money. Yeah.

31:51.49

christophknoll

Got both gyms to go to for thirty five bucks a month or something like that for a year contract. So worth it for me at least. But yeah I kind of Miss Golds in some aspects especially when like.

31:56.52

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, make it play festival that I give that a shot.

32:06.34

christophknoll

Before Golds got too busy and we had access to both and the Lake Norman and the Huntersville like Dallas pretty sick because you get you know I got best at both worlds but then it got way too busy I'm just like I just can't I can't do it anymore I'm at the gym literallyy at like five thirty every day now. So.

32:16.90

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, police here like you say sometimes I'm like I don't want to deal with Huntsville so I go to Lake Norman but I mean it's still almost as equally as tagged during those peak hours I've been to Harrisburg once and that was pretty.

32:33.77

christophknoll

Um, yeah, yeah, yeah, I've heard it's gotten better like a lot better since they got it. Um I think elite got ah elite got a second location in concord now they bought out.

32:36.65

Chuy Gomez

Pretty nice gym this a smaller but it's a clean layout. Um, yeah.

32:48.34

Chuy Gomez

I Saw that I seen that.

32:51.44

christophknoll

Of the golds. Yeah I don't know how that one is but I just can't stand the life life fitness equipment. ah ah Lake Norman I don't like that shit the one that the ones that move with you I can't I can't stand it that was my biggest problem with that with that location which just that equipment which are a hoister, whatever it is life fitness hoist. Whatever brand it is.

33:02.45

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, was bad.

33:11.28

christophknoll

Which isn't you know anybody's fault who owns it now. It's just that's what they decided to go with for the equipment before when they opened the location so they got to work with it. But yeah, it was such a pain I hate that.

33:15.51

Chuy Gomez

Are.

33:21.92

Chuy Gomez

Is a mega place open on the weekends like for staff staff hours.

33:26.55

christophknoll

Oh yeah, um yeah I believe they have staffed hours in the weekends and I don't remember we look it up and we see what they got for staffed hours I don't remember what these staffed hours are um, is 24 hour access I know that.

33:44.54

christophknoll

Um, yeah Friday through Sunday seven to noon for staffed hours. Ah and staffed hours are pretty consistent too. They're they're not like like there's all the gyms I've been to where they say like like 7 to noon and they'd only be there like from like 10 to noon and they dip you know they're pretty consistent with the hours

33:59.48

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, if you get there before if you get there before noon though would they like let you stay since you already like paid and stuff or would they like want you to leave once they leave.

34:04.40

christophknoll

Um, but it is twenty four seven

34:13.49

christophknoll

Yeah I think um when I started going there I asked that question because I think I wanted to get a day pass. But um I was going to be there longer and they said no as long as you paid and you you paid for the waiver you're good.

34:16.98

Chuy Gomez

Ah.

34:30.45

christophknoll

Um, so are you paid and you signed with the waiver you're fine, but um, after that once you sign up, they give you a key fob you can scan to get in even if it's staffed. It's still locked. Um, so you have to scan to get in and you know there's a whole roof like not letting anybody in behind you or something like that.

34:43.75

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, um.

34:49.61

christophknoll

Um, but yeah, the the 1 um in universities pretty sweet. It's way more grungy. Ah, it's not like is Rusty. Not super super clean, not pretty nothing like that. But like it's serious like there's like nobody in there really is having like.

35:00.66

Chuy Gomez

I.

35:08.94

christophknoll

Conversations you know I mean like everybody's training. Yeah, everybody's in their zone. Um, so that one's pretty sick, especially during the summer there's no ac it's just it's just ah, like big box fans that they got so it got pretty hot which is sick. Everybody's drenched and sweat everybody's training hard and.

35:09.79

Chuy Gomez

Um, just have phones and just are.

35:27.51

christophknoll

Everybody's in and out you know, nobody's wasting time. Ah then the other one in North Lake is pretty sweet. It's ah it's got Ac and heat and all that I don't know if the other one has heat I remember I trained there once like December of last year or something and it was cold as shit in there. So I'm not sure if like they have heat or not I can't remember but ah the.

35:28.80

Chuy Gomez

Oh more.

35:46.38

christophknoll

The plaza when I think as he and Ac but that 1 sweet because it's like almost always dead. There's never anybody there. Ah I go to both it just depends on what I'm training so like like arm day and like shoulder day you could like argue like goes back and forth like.

35:52.60

Chuy Gomez

Which can you get to? what? ah.

36:06.41

christophknoll

Like my shoulder day I go to the plaza 1 which is in northlake um same with quad day because quads is like pretty back and forth. There's there's no like real big like differences I mean the biggest one is that the the university one does have more lake equipment. But.

36:17.95

Chuy Gomez

Um.

36:22.92

christophknoll

Really the biggest one is just the squat press and like I have to load up so many plates on the squat press I just don't feel like fucking using it I have to put like eight nine plates on there for a side and by the time I do all that it's like 20 minutes on that one movement so it just takes all day. So I go to the other one. Um for quads but then like.

36:33.27

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, so.

36:41.77

christophknoll

Hams for my like day. My ham day I go to the University one my back day I go to the University one just because they have a pullover machine and then um I do chess at the University one just because it's fun. But um, yeah I go back and forth and it's It's pretty sweet.

36:55.24

Chuy Gomez

Um, you know, but.

37:00.50

christophknoll

Um I like the natural lighting. They got the garage doors there so natural lighting is pretty cool. Um, it's pretty consistent with that. But um, it's also interesting too because like there's 1 time where I was train there and there was like a super bad thunderstorm and rain and all that and the garage doors were open. You could like hear it over your music shit. And like you look out tonight. It looks like an like actual hell outside but then you're like inside and training and whatnot was pretty dope. But um, it's.

37:25.63

Chuy Gomez

Like yeah I'm not to check it out where these are coming up weekends that I'm off see if you want to hit a ah bap or chest or something.

37:35.30

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, just let me know I'll be down. It's solid as gym I think if you're gonna check out 1 You should check out the university one um the other they're the one you can treat kind of like Lake Norman where if you don't feel like going to the other one or because like the other one is getting kind of busy which is kind of fucking annoying.

37:40.29

Chuy Gomez

Are are.

37:53.70

christophknoll

Because University one wasn't as busy before especially during the summer but like now that is starting to cool down I think people are starting to go there again and it's it's like I'm actually having to start to like move my workouts around a little bit like for what I'm training and that's those that was the problem with gold. So I'm like this ain't good.

38:00.41

Chuy Gomez

Um, we move on.

38:04.24

Chuy Gomez

Um, that should yeah.

38:10.86

christophknoll

There's the whole reason I came to megafllex is that it's never fucking busy but here we are I got to start waiting for shit. Yeah I mean hopefully with the you know once off yeah five thirty that's when everybody goes so I mean hopefully you know once.

38:16.98

Chuy Gomez

Um, it's inevitable man. It's bound to happen, especially the time you go. Um.

38:29.23

christophknoll

Christmas season is done and all that and or I mean after January I mean like after all the new Year's resolutioners like after January. It'll hopefully slow down. Um, but I mean I always had the plaza when I did the plaza 1 yesterday to see what would happen on a what did I hit yesterday. It was back. I did a back date and but I normally don't go back there. Um, and there's like nobody. So I'm like all right? So if I really need to I could just go back to the plaza one more because that's when I started when I started there I was going almost entirely to the plaza 1 in North Lake and then I like slowly started trying out to university one I was like oh this is pretty dope.

38:56.79

Chuy Gomez

Um.

39:06.60

christophknoll

And then I kept going to that one and started like flop flip-fl flopping back and forth. Um, so if I need to I just start going to the plaza 1 don't have to deal with all the fucking people I don't want to deal with but I mean it is also like a different level of.

39:17.88

Chuy Gomez

Um, and where.

39:22.30

christophknoll

Human too like I feel like I see like way more bodybuilders and shit at like Mega flex and I do it Golds from what I can remember so pretty pretty cool motivation at least there and Mega flex.

39:34.16

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, Gary kind of gives you the it sets the tone of how yeah you kind of followed the lead of the environment. You know you? you don't wanna be the only 1 grunting and pounding away when everybody is like you know.

39:43.17

christophknoll

Yeah.

39:50.84

Chuy Gomez

Ah, quiet like it's a library or something.

39:51.51

christophknoll

Yeah I Just having conversation show it up for the photos and whatnot cardio bunnies and whatnot. But I mean with your prep and all that I wouldn't be surprised if you're like if you don't like touch any other gym or anything like that until after your shows.

39:56.15

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah, yeah I mean.

40:10.69

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, that's that's usually how it is from time to timemo and a gym with somebody else just to add that excitement to work now because you know and prep what yet really down to it a few weeks out Iss like.

40:11.10

christophknoll

Just for consistency's sake. But.

40:23.89

christophknoll

Um.

40:29.69

Chuy Gomez

You need that extra motivation to make a solid workout because like mentally you drain so you don't want to like really push yourself but that you know 3 4 2 weeks out, you're really push yourself the hardest.

40:41.76

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, that was it's it got to the point where I just didn't even I mean even now I feel like partially because of pre and partially just because of pushing it through rebound I Just don't even want to train half to fucking time like I'm just like I Just don't I just want to sit at home and do nothing you know.

40:53.64

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

40:59.36

christophknoll

I've kind of like lost a love for it. A little bit but hopefully soon you know we'll be pulling it back pulling Pct or doing pct and all that. So hopefully soon um, we'll have like a rest phase you know where I'm doing like a few rest days a week or something and I can just enjoy taking some time off but then.

41:13.18

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

41:18.15

christophknoll

You know after that give you like a few weeks of just a few days of rest of week and I'll be good to go to train hard again. But yeah, preferably crushed it for me. It just like I'm just tired I got tired of training and tired of being in the gym all the time.

41:23.63

Chuy Gomez

Um, er.

41:30.89

Chuy Gomez

Um, definitely it right? after prepping.

41:34.53

christophknoll

Yeah, you gonna pull another ah can do another week of eating whatever you want again.

41:39.27

Chuy Gomez

Um, ah and now which of it. That's a national I'm go try to live myself like I three days max then back on it because it's just gonna be a rabbi hole I'll be I gain £20 in two weeks

41:52.50

christophknoll

Oh yeah yeah I mean for me, it was like when I went. Oh yeah, no, you just put put it right back on I mean I did I did like £10 in one week or something just because I just put it all back on all the all the water and shit. But um, after.

41:55.88

Chuy Gomez

And I'll be fell safe.

42:09.83

christophknoll

Ah, um, victory classic after victory classic I had ah the burger and fries between pre-judging and finals and then I had whatever I wanted I think that night and then the next morning I had like a good breakfast and that was it. We're back on it after that and for me at the time it was that was enough I mean there was only like six weeks of prep or something that went into that show essentially so like it really wasn't too too bad. It wasn't too long. So um, you know those couple meals there was was enough for me to like stay motivated. Ah.

42:31.70

Chuy Gomez

Um.

42:44.75

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

42:46.45

christophknoll

But you also started years so far out I mean it's you You weren't you didn't pull so much food right? off the bat. You know it wasn't cold turkey It was just we're going to start slowly.

42:55.72

Chuy Gomez

Um, but I've been having like damn near re feeds every week like either burger fries or sushi like pretty consistently like every week for the past since we started prep.

43:00.30

christophknoll

Yeah.

43:07.79

christophknoll

Yeah.

43:10.11

Chuy Gomez

Just now we started like cutting back on the Reef feeds but it was like a re feed every week with like high car days the following days and stuff like that. So food's been pretty good.

christophknoll

Man There's and there's shit that you've told me and I'm like how the hell are you losing weight like I'm like that's fucking crazy living in fat all that. But.

43:25.10

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, but I had a burger like two weeks ago I was like once 63 point something um, he gave me Ref Feed Bur and fries. Next day weight didn' a budge so he gave me a high carb day and then the following day. My weight dropp like a pound after the after the re fee burgerieses in a high carb. It dropped a pound so we're initially going like cut back on calories that day. But it's like now go ahead and get another high carb day.

43:45.36

christophknoll

It is.

43:58.95

Chuy Gomez

So another high car rate dropped another pound and then we're like I cool we're back on Baseline Diet now.

44:05.28

christophknoll

Fuck Dude I wish I was in the same boat as you man. That's insane you your metabolism means that needs that spike.

44:11.16

Chuy Gomez

Ah, it was weird I feel like if if food gets too low. My body doesn't respond.

44:19.28

christophknoll

Yeah, you're you're very ah was there's if you're needing high carb days then you lose your insulin sensitivity very easily I think is what that would mean you need the spike in Insulin sensitivity to lose the weight.

44:30.92

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

44:36.80

christophknoll

So I'm very the opposite if I I am very insulin sensitive all the time. So any carb just puts on weight. So it's fucking. It's a pain but I'm I'm I'm jealous man. That's it. That's his That's a dope prep that's a sick prep.

44:43.00

Chuy Gomez

Is.

44:51.91

Chuy Gomez

Yeah, it's ah been good like I said it's been good. Other than that it's just now it starting to. We're about to start pushing it so we could bring out this last bit condition of course. Ah, we're not go be completely 100% for this regional show I'm hoping about 95

44:53.43

christophknoll

Yeah.

45:08.68

christophknoll

Me.

45:09.24

Chuy Gomez

Percentage of you know if we're talking percent but hopefully pretty pretty pure but you know of course rule for improvement into nationals so is is's gonna be interesting to see how we bridge the gap from. You know the regional show three weeks the 2 national show like what you know protocols can be as for like die and everything so worth.

45:30.51

christophknoll

Yeah I mean even if you showed up like 90% I don't think you'll have a problem winningdding overall at Regionals. Um I think I think your biggest thing is literally just gonna have to come down to just your your confidence on stage.

45:35.35

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

45:45.64

christophknoll

Like if as long as you bring your confidence, you got that shit in the bag. You know there's this video I saw earlier today. Um I wanted to see what your take was on it. This guy was talking about how he doesn't think sea bum's gonna win this year he thinks that it's.

45:46.60

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

46:01.25

christophknoll

Potentially gonna be urged because Urs has the confidence on stage and it's got a lot more size and has better posing the ramon. So if you bring that that confidence supposedly you'll win.

46:13.58

Chuy Gomez

No eki, you can't bring ah a c class physique with confidence to be the 8 class physique with you know with being depressed or whatever, not confident enough like at the end of day's gonna be a physique standpoint now the physiques are very similar and it's like.

46:19.16

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah.

46:27.88

christophknoll

Yeah.

46:30.56

Chuy Gomez

And structure and size and symmetry and everything like that. The churchs are looking for are of you might I This guy looks like he's not enjoying it. This guy is like killing it then maybe it might persuade the judges but no for that example, no.

46:39.30

christophknoll

Yeah.

46:44.36

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah know I'm in the same boat I was like there's no shot Chris is losing this year like there's no way and then oh for sure you get a half as his pose this and still win. Dude the do' physique is just in next level.

46:49.56

Chuy Gomez

No, you go on stage crane while hearing his poses and you're still in like oh is that.

47:03.43

christophknoll

But I could see I could see her is meeting ramon this year and I kind of hope he does I'm not the biggest fan of Ramon's physique personally yeah that was my biggest problem with his olympia last year his vacuum wasn't really a vacuum and his arms I think you're just very overpowering.

47:07.64

Chuy Gomez

Um, ah.

47:09.79

Chuy Gomez

Yes I like his posing.

47:20.58

Chuy Gomez

As we hear I haven't even seen a recent physique of day of him. But that's for a different time I Guess Olympia predictions.

47:22.76

christophknoll

But that's my opinion Yeah yeah, I mean we got. We're only a couple what couple weeks out from I think Tolympia now so we will start seeing some more people making predictions and shit for what's going to happen there. But in the meantime you got your prep to focus on and get your posing dialed in and all that.

47:36.90

Chuy Gomez

Are more than are.

47:44.76

Chuy Gomez

Um, I actually gotta work on our posing routine because classy has a 1 minute posing routine for final. So I I'm still go to find the song one and then 2 find some ah good posing routine with good transitions and 2

47:44.97

christophknoll

Um.

47:48.58

christophknoll

Yeah. Me.

48:01.17

Chuy Gomez

Certain poses but really get it im must start going to like Norman gym more often because of the poer room just to practice that.

48:05.88

christophknoll

I Mean just regionals if you get your posing dialed in that that'll look so much fucking better than everybody else like you know watching watching classic comends open. It was just the posting just is never there during regionals. So.

48:14.63

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

48:22.40

christophknoll

Get that dialed in get good transitions and all that you'll stick out regardless of physique. Um I know that they say you know it doesn't really matter to them too much, especially men's physique. They don't they really don't give a shit about men's physic posing at regionals. But um.

48:26.86

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

48:33.39

Chuy Gomez

Sleep about.

48:37.48

christophknoll

Classic that you know they're not super super picky on the posing but still if you if you get those transitions and shit down I think I think that'll put you ahead a bit have you have any ideas of what song you might pick you got a couple you're throwing around.

48:43.41

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

48:50.93

Chuy Gomez

Um, no not I kind of want like nothing too fast pace I kind of want just more of like enough. We just not us too slow. We like something that's that that a flow you know so.

48:53.15

christophknoll

Yeah.

49:03.30

christophknoll

Yeah, that's what's up. Yeah, you'll get it. You'll get to figure it out. You got time you got you got a month roughly so plenty of time and I'm sure if you throw out like like asking people around or something like that. You'll probably find something to.

49:06.50

Chuy Gomez

We'll see we'll figure it out.

49:12.12

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah.

49:21.78

Chuy Gomez

Hair. Yeah.

49:22.31

christophknoll

To use or something you know and um, it'll click. You'll find it and you'll be like all this is the one but do you know if the nationals are gonna allow you a minute song. They do right? or.

49:30.43

Chuy Gomez

Um, top off if you make first call out they'll bring out the finals in the top 5 would do their poing routine. But if you're outside of that if you're outside that. Yeah you don't might as well. Not even show the finals because you're not gonna be able to do nothing.

49:39.31

christophknoll

Gotcha Okay I didn't I wasn't sure how that worked.

49:45.32

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, I hear that yeah and it's just top 5 for finals. That's it I mean for first call out. It's just 5 Okay.

49:51.98

Chuy Gomez

Um, yeah I believe so ah, how it could be more but I think only top 5 actually do their routine. Okay, yeah.

50:02.54

christophknoll

yeah yeah I think of I think for first callouts I've seen 5 and I've seen 7 um for for for first callouts. But I think it just varies from show to show. But I mean Texas would be sick man that's that's exciting I'll be fun.

50:13.80

Chuy Gomez

Um, we yeah I'm looking forward to it. It'll be fine. Man is the new sign.
