Training

Gaining Mass vs. Cutting

Caio Eiji Sirahata prefers to train with heavy weights and high volume for his competitions. This brings about an anabolic response from the body, allowing him to build muscle fast. “To build solid mass, you have to lift heavy”. This is, in essence, what Caio’s training is all about.

However, when he wants to lean out for a contest, things look slightly different. In this stage, he’ll make an exception – reduce the weight and increase the number of reps in each set. Cairo’s goal before a contest isn’t to add more muscle mass, but to refine what he’d already built in the ‘off-season’. In his eyes, a high-rep range is the best way to achieve this.

He might add cardio in the weeks leading up to a show. But this is not mandatory for Caio, since he already forces his metabolism to work hard with his intense weightlifting.

Nutrition

Learning Through Trial and Error

During his early competitive days, Caio’s best dieting coach was his own experience. Often times, he’d make a mistake, only to learn from it and come in better shape the following contest. In essence, it was a game of trial and error.

Over the years, as his experience grew, Caio started to differentiate what worked from what didn’t. He now has a nutrition plan that synergizes perfectly with his training regimen.

Caio’s diet revolves around lean proteins to keep his body in an anabolic state. Carbs and fats, on the other hand, provide Caio with the energy needed to plow through his demanding workouts.
