Hello everyone! My name is Cindy and I’m a Bay Area native, licensed Real Estate Agent, and fitness-obsessed NBA Professional Dancer for the Golden State Warriors. I am here to share my fitness journey with you as an Athlete who recently joined Team Evogen Elite!

Fitness and nutrition have always been interests of mine, and after my second season on the Warriors dance team, I had a desire to learn more. Though the constant training and dance practices for the Warriors kept me active, I had the urge to challenge myself even further. I wanted to see if I could push myself to the next level, and this sparked my interest to start training for my first bikini competition in the beginning of 2018. I was ready to take on this challenge and to dedicate everything to prep in order to transform my body!

I was introduced to Evogen Nutrition by my coach Kim Oddo. He recommended that I use Isoject Whey Isolate Protein at the start of my prep. I immediately noticed the significant difference it made on my stomach compared to other whey proteins I had tried in the past. I didn’t feel bloated at all and the taste was phenomenal! Then Coach Kim had me begin drinking Evogreens once or twice a day. I now consider this to be one of the best probiotic drinks out there, because I had always struggled with digestive and stomach issues throughout my life, but Evogreens has completely changed that for me. Not once during my prep did I ever feel bloated or feel any stomach discomfort, it was truly amazing. At this point, I knew that Evogen Nutrition was a game changer and that I needed to learn more about this company’s products!

Later that spring, after I had put in a supplement order on the Evogen website, I noticed that they were located in Campbell, CA. I was excited to see that such an amazing company was so close to me. After using the products, I decided to reach out to Hany Rambod on Instagram. I “slid” into his Direct Messages and told him how much I loved his products and asked if Evogen was looking for brand ambassadors. Believe it or not, he responded to me! This is something that I never thought would happen, because he has well over 400K followers. I thought that my message would get lost in the shuffle, but I gave it a shot, and let me tell you, it was worth it!

Hany was pleasantly surprised by how close I lived to company headquarters, and we thought this presented a great collaboration opportunity since I was local. Fast forward, I was invited to Evogen headquarters and became a part of Team Evogen Elite! I got a chance to model some new apparel and sign my ambassador paperwork to become an official Evogen Athlete!

While at headquarter that day, Hany and I talked for well over an hour about my goals and where he could see me growing in the fitness industry. I was truly starstruck that he genuinely  believed in me and was taking so much time to discuss my goals. He thought it was a great idea to train for my first bikini competition and gave me his insight on what paths to take. Evogen has never worked with a professional dancer before, so I wanted to prove to everyone how dedicated I was to this team and how hard I could train for this show with the support of the ultimate Pro-Creator himself. I am forever grateful that Hany took a chance on selecting me to be a part of his team. I am here to make him and the team proud!

For the next two months after my initial visit to Evogen, I really put my head down and stayed focused. I was training twice a day and following a strict meal plan that changed every week. I seriously loved the training process for my competition and the way that I felt from eating so clean. My digestive system was so happy with the change and I had tons of energy throughout my whole prep.

The hardest part about training for a competition is really your own mindset. You have to get out of your own head, stay determined, and be self-disciplined enough to stick to your plan. The biggest competition you face in a bikini competition is YOUR MIND. If you can conquer that, then you have already won the battle. I loved the challenge and seeing the changes in my body, and this motivated me to keep going.

I used Evogen products every single day during prep, so it’s hard to pick my favorites! Here are a few of my top products that I utilized and that I recommend to others:

Carnigen has been an absolute life saver! The amount of cardio that is required, especially towards the end of prep, can be exhausting. Having Carnigen as an energy catalyst before every cardio session really helped me stay on track.

Lipocide IR, a fat burning powder, is what I paired with Carnigen for my morning cardio sessions. Lipocide IR not only tastes amazing, but gave me amazing results during the last four weeks of my prep.

– Last but NOT least, EVOGREENS has to be highlighted. This immune system booster and probiotic blend helped save my digestive system and kept me healthy throughout my prep. When Evogen announced the chocolate and berry flavors, I couldn’t have been more ecstatic! They taste so good!

It’s hard for me to believe that just three weeks ago I walked away from my first ever NPC Bikini Competition with two first place wins and two Overall Champion titles in both Novice and True Novice. I am forever grateful to Hany and Team Evogen Elite for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to become an ambassador, because without them, I don’t think I would be where I am today – crowned an Overall Champion at Spectrum Fitness Productions Nor Cal Championships 2018. What an incredible journey!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH EVOGEN.

 

Clean vs. Dirty Bulking by Lauren Findley

 

Ah, the age old debate: the clean bulk vs the dirty bulk. Which is more beneficial? Which will lead to the most gains? The truth is, I’m sure everyone wishes they could dirty bulk and get away with it. However, much of this depends on your metabolism and how quickly your body puts on fat in the off season. If your metabolism is extremely fast (i.e. you’re a “hard gainer”), it’s possible that a dirty bulk (essentially eating whatever you want, and lots of it) is the quickest way to Gainsville. I personally have never dirty bulked before (sigh), but, as mentioned, there are pros and cons to bulking both ways!

For me, clean bulking is the best way to gain muscle during my improvement season while not putting on a ton of unnecessary weight. Now, what the heck is clean bulking? A clean bulk is when you eat in a caloric surplus, but you are consuming whole, nutritious foods and meeting certain requirements of protein, carbs and fats. Right now, I cycle the amount of carbs I have (higher and lower days, then repeat). Another tool I utilize is the good ole stair master – I never stop doing cardio a few times a week.

A question I often get asked is, “Do you ever get to enjoy treats, or “non-diet” food? The answer is: Absolutely! A common misconception is that, since I am following a structured diet, I obviously only eat boring foods and never get to enjoy myself. During a clean bulk, I still get cheat meals. Hellooooo, sushi and burgers!

As I currently embark on my clean bulking adventure during this improvement season, there are certain muscle groups I am focusing on. Mainly, I want to bringoverall size to my legs, and that has been my main priority! This means quads, hamstrings, glutes, and don’t forget those stubborn calves.

Aside from lots of food, awesome training sessions and the occasional date with the stair master, I am also utilizing Cell KEM and Glycoject to ensure this growing season is as beneficial as possible. Cell KEM helps with my pumps in the gym, and most importantly, my post workout recovery. If your muscles don’t recover properly, they will not grow! Glycoject is a fast-acting carbohydrate that gives me the endurance to power through those tough (and frequent) leg days, shuttling the carbs to those hard-working muscles and fueling the most grueling workouts.

My current off-season supplementation protocol:

Pre-workout:

1 scoop EVP Xtreme

Intra-workout:

1 scoop Cell K.E.M.

1 scoop GycoJect

Post-workout:

1 scoop IsoJect

Pros & Cons of Dirty Bulking

 ProsCons
Clean BulkLess fat gainSlower progress
HealthyRequires planning and preparation
Easy to maintainLess gains
Dirty BulkWeight GainHigher body fat percentage
Muscle GrowthBat eating habits
Reverses catabolic stateFat Gain

What are the differences between AminoJect and Cell K.E.M.?

 

Evogen Founder/CEO Hany Rambod “The Pro Creator” breaks down the differences between the AminoJect BCAA and Cell K.E.M. amino builder, how and when to use them. Here are some of the key points:

  • AminoJect is designed to enhance recovery, while Cell K.E.M. has an amino builder designed to maximize fullness, build muscle, and enhance recovery.
  • AminoJect and Cell K.E.M. both contain electrolytes, but Cell K.E.M. also contains creatine, nitric oxide precursors, and anti-oxidants to enhance the cellular effects of the nitric oxide precursors.
  • AminoJect can be used in a daily stack with Cell K.E.M., but the ratios of each depends on whether you are cutting, in maintenance mode, or bulking.

Elite Athlete Spotlight

Thanksgiving is a time to express gratitude, and as Founder/CEO of Evogen Nutrition, I want to say “thank you” to all of our customers. Since 2008, I’ve been on a mission to produce an elite line of supplements utilizing only the highest quality ingredients. Since the launch of Evogen Nutrition, I’ve been so grateful to share my formulas with you. Thank you so much for your support.

Additionally, I’m thankful for my team. Not only Jeremy and Lauren, but everyone. With the launch of evogenelite.com everyone has an opportunity to join the team. I wanted to recognize and welcome Moyses Santana, a recent addition to Team Evogen Elite. Moyses is a dedicated athlete whose commitment, passion and engagement with all things Evogen has really stood out to me. After connecting with Luis Montoya of Team Evogen Elite, Santana began using my products merely in an effort to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle, but as time passed his interest in fitness grew. He recently used Evogen products throughout his contest prep for his very first show early this month. He placed Top 5! Way to go Moyses we are very proud of you! You can learn more about Moyses’ story below.

Again, thank you all so much for your support, we couldn’t be here doing what we love without you guys. Happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Hany Rambod

 

MOYSES SANTANA – November, 2017

Thank you very much for accepting my application!! So here is my story with Luis Montoya…

Luis Montoya and I became Facebook friends back in July of 2015 for two reasons: 1) we had over 100 mutual friends, and 2) I admired his amazing physique.

We used to like each other’s posts from time to time, then for some reason his posts began showing up in my feed all the time, which I loved it. He always inspired me to get better. We both started our fitness journeys while we were overweight, and I wanted to achieve his physique.

So, around November of last year I came across one of his videos talking about Evogen Nutrition. He explained the products so well, and he had so much passion about it that it triggered my curiosity. I was using a different brand at that time. I read everything I could about Evogen, Hany, Jeremy and Luis, and it made me wish I was part of the Team Evogen family.

In January 2017 I bought my first box of supplements from Evogen: Lipocide, EVP, Cell K.E.M. and IsoJect. In 30 days I noticed an incredible difference in my body, so I ordered the same stack again, but added Carnigen and AminoJect this time. I got hooked for LIFE!

In February I came across another Luis video, this time talking about FST-7. Again, I did my research, and came across the Jeremy and Hany Blue Print Ebook. I followed exactly, doing the described routine over and over again on my own until June.

But I wanted to have Luis’ physique. I asked myself, “How can I achieve that? I need to reach out to him somehow.” So, I finally contacted him in July. I told him what I thought about him and Evogen Nutrition. I asked him if he could be my mentor and prep coach. I wanted to compete and become a fitness model. He was the nicest guy ever and said, “Yes brother, let’s do this!” We started my prep at the end of July and continued through the end of October. We’ve been talking almost every day since and we worked hard together all prep. He is all I hoped for and much more, as a coach and as a friend! 

I remember over the summer when I told Luis how much I wanted to become part of the Evogen Nutrition Team. Luis told me it was very hard, but not impossible. Just keep being me, work hard and it will come. I told him I would wait and work for it as long as it takes… I’ve been sharing Evogen Nutrition will all my clients and friends and giving Luis’ code to everybody.

NOW you have an idea how I felt when I got your email… Luis and Evogen Nutrition have changed my life! I hope someday really soon I get to meet him in person, say thank you and shake his hand.

The competition experience was amazing! I competed November 4th at the Pittsburgh OCB Steel City Natural show. This was my first show ever, and I placed top 5 in my class (4th place)!! I was very pleased! My prep was 100% powered by Evogen Nutrition, and I’ve been using Evogen products since January. That’s why I was so happy when you guys approved me to join your team! I’ve never had this kind of results in my life!

Again, this was the first show I’ve ever been to, so being behind the scenes as a competitor was surreal. The registration process, the testing (to prove I was natural), the professional tanning, the preparation with Luis Montoya, the day of the show, talking and sharing experiences with other amazing athletes, everything was way better than I expected! I’m hooked! I will be competing at least twice a year from now on! I want to become a pro athlete!

I also had my very first fitness photo shoot, it was awesome! I had one 10 days out from the show and a second one after, so all my hard work has been properly documented. Now it’s time to start my off season, or “gain season” as Jeremy calls it! I’m doing the rebound protocol with Jeremy, the bulk with Jeremy, and then to get shredded I’ll begin online coaching with Jeremey next year! In 2018 I’m going for the win!!

Evogen Nutrition, Hany, Jeremy and Luis have changed my life forever! I went from a normal guy to a “machine”; I read, train, eat, drink, and breath bodybuilding. I started as a guy who just wanted to get back in shape, and instead went on this crazy fitness journey and got shredded. Now I’m a Men’s Physique athlete who made top 5 in my first competition, and I made it on Team Evogen Elite!

Next, I’m aiming for my PRO card, then I’m going to climb my way up the ladder with this amazing company! I want to do demos on different locations, I want to work at expos for Evogen, I want to spread the word about Evogen Nutrition, meet Hany, Jeremy and Luis in person, and as many athletes and professionals from Evogen as possible! You guys ROCK!!
