I decided to do this trainer because I was bored with my workouts. I was not making any progress in the gym and I was not trying anything new. This trainer allowed me to push me out of my comfort zone which really helped me transform.
I chose Kris' MBT because I wanted something that had videos, nutrition guides, and I love that Kris is so motivating before the workout. Watching the video before I worked out really made me get hyped up.
During the trainer, I was taking the Hydra-Charge, Whey Protein Isolate, and Clean Burn daily.
I think my favorite supplement to take during the trainer was the Whey Protein Isolate (I used chocolate). It was a really great way to satisfy my sweet tooth and keep me full after a workout.
A Day of my diet plan looked like this:
Breakfast: 5 oz strawberries, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 scoop whey protein isolate.
Snack: 1 banana.
Lunch: Salad with 4 oz. chicken/tuna/turkey with 4 oz. vegetables, 2 tbsp. Italian dressing.
pre-workout snack: 1 piece of whole wheat toast, 1/2 apple.
Post workout shake: 1 scoop of WPI (whey protein isolate)
dinner: 4 oz veggies, 3 oz. steak/chicken/beef/salmon/shrimp/tilapia, 3 oz of sweet potato/rice/whole wheat pasta etc.
I think the best advice was to not necessarily rely on the scale. Since I was putting on muscle, it was important to make sure that I was trying to watch my body fat percentage but not worry about gaining weight since muscle weighs more than fat.
I think the super-sets were really challenging for me. I am so used to taking 1-2 min breaks between sets, but in this program to keep your heart rate up, you have to keep going with fewer rest periods. But after week 3, I got used to it.
Do not worry about the outcome. Focus on showing up every day, staying with your diet and getting adequate sleep and hydration. Use this program as an apparatus to focus on yourself and really be the healthiest you that you can be and there will be a great outcome.

Before committing to this program, I told all of my friends and family that I was working hard on focusing on myself and for the 2 months, I needed their understanding. They did not judge me, they were very helpful and caring. I also made sure to meal prep and take my proper food to class/work. Staying on a set schedule was key to transforming. Without having a relatively set schedule, I would have made excuses because I am a full-time graduate student and I have a part-time job. But besides being a little more focused, it was easy and I enjoyed the structure in my diet and training.
