My reason for entering the Project Inferno program was that I did well in a previous trainer program which was an eye opener for me as I never imagined I would get anywhere. I did hesitate about taking part as the amount of cardio worried me, but the look of it excited me also.
It looked so challenging but promising and exciting at the same time. I wanted to see how my body would cope with such high volume training and cardio.
I took PRE-KAGED, RE-KAGED, Hydra-Charge, Amino Synergy, Citrulline, and Micropure Whey Protein Isolate.
I absolutely love RE-KAGED Orange Kream. I made desserts with it and added it to homemade protein bars. I just love it, it’s lush.
After my morning cardio, I would start the day with scrambled egg whites, 1 yolk, and asparagus.
Midmorning I would take a homemade protein pancake to work filled with FAGE yogurt and 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Lunch was chicken with green leafy veg, avocado, and a few walnuts. After training, I would have RE-KAGED with cream of rice in my shaker bottle. My evening meal was usually chicken, veg, and rice. I would also have a scoop of Kasein before bed.
He gave lots of good advice, but my favorite is, “you may feel depleted but get to the gym and get it done.” It makes you feel on top of the world.
The cardio, definitely. As the calories went down I got tired and didn’t want to get up to do cardio, but I wouldn’t let myself quit.
Be prepared to get really tired but just keep going. The calorie drop when getting near the end of the program feels brutal also, but it’s not forever. Keep telling yourself that.

I would set my alarm to do cardio really early, rest for a bit, then go to work. I fit in the weight training after work. I didn’t do gatherings at restaurants as I knew I would fail, so I’d invite family over. That way I would have my food planned.
Yes, I did Kris Gethin’s 8-Week Muscle-Building Trainer and loved it. I would watch his videos for that week at the start of the week and write down any tips he suggested on my workout sheets.
