This has since led him to become an online fitness persona – helping others with training and nutrition advice.

A huge advocate of tracking calories, training hard, and above all, consistency. Matt will be sure to grace the fitness world with his advice and motivations for a long time to come.

“It seems patience is something that is far too absent these days. Understandable given the nature of the world we live in. Take your time to perfect what you do. Rushing won’t get you the results you deserve.”

Training

Matt’s favorite body part is shoulders. He often dedicates an entire workout to this muscle group, hitting it “hard and heavy.” 

However, no matter which muscle group Matt trains, he makes sure to train it with a full range of movement. Above all, Matt prioritizes slow and controlled repetitions.

His favorite exercises are:

  • Plate-loaded low rows (back)
  • Dumbbell or kettlebell spider curls (biceps)
  • Rear delt flys (shoulders)

“Celebrate life just because. If you ever find yourself getting stressed out about your responsibilities or whatever it may be, just remember, everything is random anyway.”

Nutrition

Staying on Top of His Diet

Matt is a big believer in tracking macros. This helps him to stay on track with his food intake, allowing him to manipulate his body weight according to his goals.

For example, when Matt wants to lean out, he’ll reduce his calories from carbs. At the same time, he’ll increase his protein intake. This will help him lose weight quickly while maintaining his muscle mass.

Matt’s Fruit Smoothie

Matt realizes that many people have trouble getting enough fruit in their diet. Because of his busy schedule, Matt sometimes encounters the same problem.

To compensate for this, Matt likes to make fruit-packed protein smoothies. They consist of a lot of frozen fruit mixed with a fresh banana and whey protein.

As Matt says: “whizz whey protein, loads of frozen fruit, fresh banana, milk, and ice together. Always tastes amazing!”
