I was looking to start the OVT workout by CT soon, however i came across a couple of posts made by CT on another forum. I just wasn’t sure if its CT himself making them comments or someone posing as him.
What was written;
I’ll try to give an answer to everybody’s satisfaction (I’m the one in the article).
- The program DID suck!!! I wrote this 6-7 years ago when I was just starting in the training/coaching business. And I honestly didn’t know that much at the time! I was a former olympic lifter who was just starting out training for aesthetics.
I recently wrote an article detailing what I would have done differently, since I have less than 10 posts I cannot post the link, but go to T-Nation and look for ‘‘Refined Physique Transformation’’ in the archive.
I was 100% clean when I did that transformation. I really did not gain any muscle, maybe 1-2lbs. It doesn’t look like it in the before picture, but I was actually quite muscular (albeit fat). I was just done competing as an olympic lifter and was fairly strong in all basic lifts (OL and PL). I won’t post numbers as not to attract the ‘BS callers’, suffice to say that my muscle mass was larger than what it seems on the picture.
The before picture is actually quite unflattering as it was taken in front of super bright lights (which washed out any definition I might have had). It wasn’t a ‘set up’ to make me look worse though. The picture was taken during a posture analysis that I performed as part of my M.Sc. biomechanics class. At the time I had no intention of doing a physique transformation… if anything the pic itself motivated me to start.
So basically all I really did was lose 30lbs of fat in 16 weeks (not 14, it was a miscalculation). It really was 16 weeks… I really was natural.
I dunno if it will help clear things out, but when I was 18 (4 years prior to the transformation) I used steroids for football. Long story short I had a majopr health problem that required emergency surgery. Had I waited 24 hours before going to the ER I would have died. These things make you think about using drugs you know! You can believe what you want anyway, anything I can say will not make you change your mind.
