abouttodd

My personal goal from the development of my web site is to empower all those who are attempting to improve their bodies with the knowledge necessary to accomplish their dream of having a healthy, strong, and lean body. I have outlined in detail the workout programs, the proper biomechanics on each exercise, the correct cardiovascular presciptions for each individual’s particular goals, and the nutritional outlines for those striving to elevate their metabolic rates, shed body fat, and build muscle. Moreover, I am committed to continually updating my site with every bit of new information I garner from personally working with all the clients I have the pleasure to encounter on a daily basis. Although I have chosen to give away all of my personal philosophies, knowledge, and my 25 years of experience of working with over 75,000 people from all over the globe, I have much more to offer those who choose to become a member of my  Todd Smith’s Elite Training Team.

Historically, it has been proven, that even if someone is armed with all the knowledge necessaryto attain their goals, almost all of us need much more: Motivation, direction, and accountability are three monumental aspects of successfully transforming your body into what you hope it can be. My experience has shown me that those who have daily contact with an expert mentor are exponentially more likely to succeed than those who choose to do it alone. While I have been a body transformation coach for over 25 years, I definitely don’t pretend to be an expert in everything. Therfore, I certainly see the value in having a professional oversee my progress in all subjects that I have not mastered. Since I am personally committed to constantly improving all aspects of my life, I have successfully utilized coaches to assist me in the accomplishment of developing new business opportunities, creating and maintaining loving relationships, and re-igniting my passion for personal growth when I have hit a plateau. One thing I realized long ago, was that time was my most valuable commodity. Therfore, when I reach a road block in life, I take the issue head on, and leave no stone unturned in my quest to overcome my obstacle.

I hope as you read this, you are able to reflect on your own life, and think about how long you have thought about being the best you can be. So why choose me as your mentor? The real challenge comes when attempting to apply all the knowledge, and being disciplined and motivated enough to stay the course. The ultimate challenge is having enough focus to carry the change through to behavior. That is why my training is so vital. My coaching program is the premier long term solution to making enduring changes. For your sake, I sincerely hope you choose to follow my direction. Stand in front of a mirror, look yourself straight in the eye, and say, “I Can Do It”. You will not be sorry, for you will receive the greatest return on your investment of time and money than you ever had at any other time in your life.

By becoming a member of Todd Smith’s Elite Training Team you will receive the following:

  • - Direction: Customized nutrition and exercise programs monitored daily and updated weekly.

Endomorph Diet Plan

endomorph

If you are an “endomorph” your body type is one that tends to have a higher body fat percentage.  We all have a genetic predisposition for carrying a certain amount of body fat, moreover, we all have a unique way of placing that fat throughout our body. Endomorphs, most of the time, find that it is complicated to lose weight. Since endomorphs have a higher percentage of body fat, from carbohydrates storage, the body releases insulin that cannot efficiently do its job.  Thus, the insulin can not drive the amino acids and carbohydrates into the muscle.  In the interim, the pancreas overcompensates and ends up releasing more insulin and helps accumulate more fat storage as opposed to muscle growth.

For this group of people, the diet that will work the best is the “low-carbohydrate” diet.  If you lower the carbohydrates you injest, you lower the release of insulin.  This will shift the body internal chemistry and force it to rely on fatty acids as fuel, control hunger, and help save muscle mass.

Through this diet, you do not need as much cardiovascular training.  The suggested amount is 3 days per week or 40-45 minutes per week of high intensity cardiovascular training. If you start having any problems with this diet, you should reduce your carbohydrate intake even further to 30-50 grams per day or switch carbohydrates to non-insulin producing carbohydrates as discussed earlier in the diet plan listed for vegetables.

Also, Endomorph dieters can really gain from eating foods such as lean beef daily while dieting because beef is high in creatine and will contribute to more energy when weight lifting.  One thing to keep in mind is that endomorph dieters tend to retain water.  Thus, it is best to stick to a diet that is low in salt intake.

For this dieter, protein will be used to provide energy.  A high protein and low carbohydrate diet will stimulate fat loss by expanding energy to digest, absorb and assimilate the nutrients in the body through thermogenesis.  Endomorphs should lower carbohydrate intake by 60-100 grams a day.  Protein should be up to 2 grams per pound of body weight.  The dieter should follow this for 3-5 days before lowering his complete sources of protein to 1 gram per pound of body weight and upping carbohydrate intake to 2 grams per pound of body weight for one day only. This process should be repeated every week.  If you up the carbohydrates for 1 day you are tricking the body and causing the muscles to swell temporarily with glycogen.  Muscles will then continue to grow when dieting.
