I also credit, and would not think of going without their Muscle Synthesis Powder, 100% MR , Alpha Omega M3,  Fat Reduce FBO5 (even when I don’t need to lose fat I use it for energy and building lean muscle mass) and the incredible protein DigestA+Lean Protein.

How hard are you really working during your training sessions?

What is more beneficial for your bottom line progress?  A rapid fire set that lasts 20 seconds or controlling rep speeds to make sets last 2 to 3 times as long?

Tempo (speed of rep)

The repetition component lengths will be designated by a number of seconds. Many of the programs require a tempo of 3-2-1-1. The following order will be a uniform pattern eccentric- isometric-concentric-reset point.

Component Eccentric Isometric (pause at bottom) Concentric Pause at top






 For example a 3-2-1-0 bench press would be

 3 sec from the top to reach the chest

2 sec pause on bottom

1 sec to lift the weight

0 pause at top

A pulling exercise would have a different scheme using the same tempo system

A lat pull down with a 4-2-1-2 tempo would require

4 sec to go from the chest to the top of the movement where arms are outstretched

2 sec pause at top of the movement

1 sec to bring the bar down to the chest

2 sec pause at the chest pulling the bar into the torso

Adjusting to new tempos is perhaps one of the most difficult parameters to implement, however it is a key to your success.  I strongly suggest using a stop watch while training to not only measure the time between sets, but also to evaluate how long each set will last.  For example a tempo of 3-2-1-1 equals 7 seconds per rep multiplied by 6 reps would be 42 sec.  If the duration of your sets is 20 sec, there is a problem!  At times you will have to lower the weights to accommodate the proper tempo and form.  This is ok!  Do not be alarmed as over time the proper execution of the tempos will result in significant increases of strength.

Customized Training and Nutrition Consultation Client Testimonial


My Secret, is Scott…

I’ve been working with Scott Mendelson for over ten years now. I’m a 56 year old fitness fanatic while juggling a senior executive lifestyle, and have been working out since I was 19 years old. The results I have seen since working with Scott… both on the customized routines he creates for me, and the supplementation and revolutionary dietary recommendations he recommends… are far beyond not only my own expectations, but also to the ASTONISHMENT of everyone in my gym and in my personal life. I maintain 5-6% body fat, and EVERY SINGLE DAY (no exaggeration) people come up to me and ask how i do it. Not only in the gym, but I’ve had many people stop me on the street, in my local health food store, and even PULL OVER IN THEIR CARS to find out “my secrets”.

My Secret, is Scott (and through him, the dietary and supplementation wisdom of Dr. Serrano). I also credit, and would not think of going without their Muscle Synthesis, 100% MR, Alpha Omega M3, Fat Reduce (even when I don’t need to lose fat I use it for energy and building lean muscle mass) and the incredible protein DigestA+Lean Protein.

Even at age 56, by own doctors cannot believe my “stats” and express disbelief that I maintain vital signs of an athletic 25 year old. I’m not kidding. Everyone in the gym… trainers, college athletes, men, women.. and especially anyone paying attention to aging and how to stay “beyond in shape”… in fact in elite athletic shape… cannot believe (nor seem to achieve) my results. And I know the reason why…. they don’t train following Scott’s customized routines , supplementation, and dietary programs. NOBODY in my age group, or even decades younger, come close to my results. But they COULD, I believe, by following Scott and Dr. Serrano’s advice and routines. (For a MAJOR dietary revelation, check out their new 5 1/2 hour seminar video!)

One of the main things people tend to notice and comment on is that I’m not only muscular, but I’m very vascular and cut. Vascularity is of course a key factor to good health, as excellent circulation is one of the things most people begin to lose with age, yet I continue to improve and thus my overall health is excellent and delivery of oxygen and nutrients are that of a very young person… in fact exceeding most of them. I also know that my intensity and focus are a big part of this; something I have developed over time due to the continually evolving routines and outstanding energy levels that allow me to work much harder, and recover much faster than almost anyone. After my most strenuous workouts (typically leg workouts), I’m literally almost crawling out of the weight room, yet I am bouncing with energy already by the time I leave the gym ten minutes later!

I could go on and on, but I think you get my message. I almost hate to reveal “my secrets”, but in fact I wish this fantastic elite health for anyone who is willing to commit to it. Give Scott a try… I GUARANTEE that, like me, you’ll still be a faithful follower a decade or two from now, and will be the star of your gym, and with anyone in your life who cares about abundant health, sculpted muscular bodies, and OBVIOUS fantastic health! Do it now!

Training Quality over Quantity for Rapid Fat Burning

Sure with great weather comes high levels of motivation, but are you really applying a high level of effort to the right training routine for your needs each or just going through the motions like most people in the gym.  Training sessions should include strategic challenges to make you work harder, but not longer each session to drive up fat burning hormones.  Do not be afraid to call your habits and execution into question so problems can be fixed before another Summer slips away.

What Is your Plan and Does it Work?

Most people under estimate the value of the nutrition, training, supplementation, and recovery plans, thinking hard work alone will enable them to reach their goals.  Just take a look in any gym across the nation from 5 to 7 pm every day and you will find numerous people busting their butts for lousy progress.  90% or more of the average people going to the gym make little to know progress over time as their strategies do not fit their needs.  There is no shortage of people working hard, but very few work hard and SMART to maximize their success.

Noora with Great Abs

Cleanse Fat Cells with Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10  for Great ABS. Alpha Omega M3 eliminates cravings while accelerating body fat loss through multiple pathways.    The Alpha Omega M3 is not only a great investment in lowering body fat levels quickly, but also keeping them low long term by creating several powerful barriers to body fat accumulation.

GCX10 Attacks Stubborn Belly Fat While Potentially Doubling the Rates of Strength Gains and Muscle Growth.

The research group using Lactoferrin lost an average of 1.79 inches of body fat from their waist while the control group lost only .35 inches over the same 8 week Research Trial. (1)

Maximizing the Rate of Fat Burning

Your Rate of Physique Transformation will depend on the proper execution of many factors including weight training, interval sprints, supplementation, rest, and stress management amongst others.  You cannot optimize metabolism or fat burning hormones without all of the key elements working together on a consistent basis. 

The quickest path to losing 10-20 pound of body fat in 30 days or less is a customized training and nutrition program.  Check out the picture of my client Jason above to see the kind of results my clients earn on regular basis!

Eating “Clean” is Not Enough to Earn a Low Body Fat Level

I wish I had a penny for every time someone told me they were just going to eat “clean” to lose body fat.  There is much more to the success equation.  The amount of food, protein, dietary fat and carbohydrate ratios, food combinations, timing and more must all be manipulated to accelerate the burning of stored fat as fuel.  Our nutrition plans are so advanced that they are simple to execute!  You cannot eat the same foods all of the time and rely only on lowering calories to consistently lose body fat!

Those who cannot take the customized route can use the KISS Rapid Fat Loss Nutrition program as it is highly effective and extremely easy to execute.  The KISS program includes many advanced tactics including macronutrient cycling, modified fasting and more to drive rapid- yet permanent body fat loss.

             Redefining Intensity!

I personally review consultation client weight training workout data every 2 to 4 weeks and based on years of experience I know what people are capable of doing.  In many cases I must help clients redefine the intensity of their workouts to accelerate fat loss. Yes intensity is partially measured by gradually increasing weight loads, but we do so while executing perfect form, tempo (Rep Speed) while keeping to the strict rest periods.

The details are very important and you must make the body work gradually harder over the course of a 6 week plan to maximize fat burning benefits.  You must take advantage of the nervous system to maximize your work output while keeping rest periods very short.  This is not just mind over matter in the gym.  The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder will increase your work capacity while increasing the utilization of stored fat as fuel and allow for a much higher training output leading to a big increase in fat burning hormones.  Putting out this type of effort several times per week requires the recovery benefits of the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis to avoid over training.

Holding Yourself Accountable with The Success Calendar

I developed the Success Calendar as a simple method for clients to track the quality and consistency of their execution in a simple format.  You can get a free copy of the Success Calendar by emailing

You simply score specific tasks such as training, nutrition, rest and supplementation with a 1, 2 or a 3 on a daily basis.  This enables you to look back at a period of a month to see how well you did with your execution.  My clients who score over 90% always earn great progress quickly.  Those over 95% are the ones make miraculous improvements.

Be Patient and Good Progress Will Be Earned!

Keep in mind that it takes time to earn the body of your dreams and for most people the entire mission cannot be accomplished in only 30 days.  Your body fat problems did not transpire overnight, so they will resolve instantly either!  You can earn much faster progress during months 2 and 3 of a properly designed plan in comparison to month 1 as it takes time to build metabolic and hormonal momentum! 

Making the Grade!

How consistently are you executing your program?

5 days out of 7 you are perfect with diet and let it slide on the weekends?   That will not be good enough for rapid fat loss.  Keep in mind that losing 10-20 pounds of body fat in 30 days or less is not an easy task and requires a great effort.  However when losing body fat the right way by optimizing metabolism and hormone levels – you will not suffer a rebound of body fat accumulation like 99% of people.

Maintaining body fat loss is much easier than burning it off fast, allowing for much more freedom with the diet during the maintenance periods.  Yes to maximize your fat loss progress you will need to make some sacrifices, however it is only for a short period of time.

You make it the gym most of the time, but some training sessions are at a higher quality than others?  Missing training sessions and poor effort levels will not “cut it”!  Every training session is an opportunity to improve your physique!  Confidence in your plan will fuel the high levels of effort needed for rapid body transformation.

Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis

Proprietary Ratios of Amino Acids based on many years of Dr. Serrano’s success patient research within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder accelerate fat burning 24×7!  Our clients are able to take a very aggressive approach to fat loss without sacrificing muscle.   We use Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis around training and between meals to increase rates of fat burning, protect lean muscle, accelerate recovery, improve energy and destroy cravings for bad food choices.

Taken between meals the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis make the brain believe a massive amount of food has been consumed.  As a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat since the 100% MR and MS have no caloric burden.  This leaves only body fat to be burned by a raging metabolism.  Placing a scoop of each between meals a couple times per day will have a huge impact on energy levels; this will help to eliminate your midafternoon slump while accelerating fat burning and recovery.

Fat Reduce Day Time FBO5 for Rapid Fat Loss and balanced Energy
Fat Reduce Day Time FBO5 for Rapid Fat Loss and balanced Energy

Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time was recently reformulated based on new findings in scientific literature and Dr. Serrano’s patient experimentation. Hormones govern body composition progress and when they get out of whack for a variety of reasons such as high stress and poor sleep they form a huge barrier to success despite perfect diet and training! Dr. Serrano determined an exact ratio of ingredients within the Fat Reduce FBO5 to optimize the hormonal environment for body fat loss, high energy, and improved performance following thousands of patient blood work reviews.

By: Eric Serrano and Scott H. Mendelson

Kiss Rapid Fat Loss Nutrition Plan Videos Part 1 and Part 2

Clients regularly can lose up to 10 pounds of body fat during the first 14 days of executing the Kiss Rapid Fat Loss Nutrition plan.  The first two weeks which we refer to as the Fat Burning Kick Starter are designed to shift the body into using an increased amount of stored fat as fuel while cleansing the system of many toxins associated with refined foods.  The Kick Starter featuring high organic protein, medium dietary fat and high dietary fiber intake will never leave you feeling hungry or low on energy!  Rapid Fat Loss Progress fuels consistent execution which is a key to long term fat loss success.

Dr. Serrano explains the Power of Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis

“I perform extensive hormonal blood work reviews with every patient on a regular basis and can quickly spot barriers to success such as overtraining by evaluation the testosterone to cortisol ratio, thyroid, cholesterol, liver enzymes and more. New patients often have poor levels of amino acid concentration in the blood stream and this vital marker defines patient potential for building muscle and burning fat.
During follow up blood work Patients who Amino Load frequently with the proprietary blends of ingredients within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder that I developed can experience huge improvements in their blood profiles identifying the proper levels of Amino Acids available to fuel rapid muscle growth, fat loss and accelerated performance. The physique improvements following this improved status are absolutely incredible.” Eric Serrano MD

                        No Fat Burning Plateaus

A Typical low calorie fat loss nutrition plan will initially cause people to lose a combination of muscle and body fat within the first month, but progress on the scale grinds to a halt shortly thereafter.  You can expect an even faster rate of fat loss during the second month of the KISS Rapid Fat Loss program as it takes time to build metabolic and hormonal momentum.

Easy To Follow the KISS Plan Every Day

KISS stands for keep it simple stupid!  The program makes use of many advanced nutrition concepts, yet we have made the KISS plan very simple to execute which supports both the high quality and consistency of execution needed to maximize your fat burning capabilities.  Eating primarily two meals per day with snacks between meals in some situations requires minimal food prep time and allows you to work throughout the day with fewer interruptions to sit down and eat.  Eating at most sit down restaurants is very easy to do on a daily basis if necessary. 

High Energy Levels Drive High Quality Fat Burning Training Sessions

Exercise plays a vital role in the rapid fat loss success equation and adequate energy is needed to support your training success.  Performing the right weight training and interval sprint programs to fit individual client needs can double the rate of fat loss.   The higher the quality of your training sessions- the faster you will lose body fat.  Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder (now available with natural flavoring) around training and between meals will provide a powerful alternative energy source for intense training and daily life while crushing cravings.

Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder between meals can improve mental energy levels and performance of difficult work related tasks even when working hour are running longer than normal.  These proven tools are even more important when executing a low carbohydrate plan to shift the body to using stored fat as fuel instead of hard earned muscle.

Alpha Omega M3 kills cravings

“There is no shortage of stressed patients in my practice and Alpha Omega M3 is a required tool for all of them. In addition to the great fat burning impact related to the carefully designed ratios of essential fats I have also found that clients may experience improved mood, less anxiety, fewer cravings for bad food choices and generally deal better with stressful situations.” Eric Serrano MD

The KISS Plan Includes Simple to Execute Macronutrient Cycling

Just like training your nutrition plan must also change strategically to avoid metabolic staleness.  Macronutrient Cycling is a simple way of changing food sources at certain times to rapidly increase crucial fat burning enzymes while optimizing the hormonal environment.  Rotating foods can prevent the sluggishness stemming from food sensitivities developed from eating the same foods every day.  If your nutrition strategy has not changed in years, it must for you to earn rapid fat loss progress.

Macronutrient Cycling for Rapid Fat Loss
Hear are some clues- the nutrition plan just like training must also be changed strategically to avoid metabolic staleness every 6-12 weeks. Macronutrient Cycling is one of the greatest nutrition discoveries over the last 25 years. Changing the macronutrient amounts forces the body to use more stored fat as fuel by changing metabolic patterns and increasing fat burning enzymes.

 We review thousands of meal plans each year along with detailed client histories and many of the same mistakes keep coming up.  If you have failed to make significant progress with methods used before then a drastic change is needed are you can expect the same poor results.  Why waste your time and money on methods that do not work?

Fat Cell Cleansing

There are many misconceptions about body fat- it is made up of billions of fat cells, some we are born with and others created by bad food choices such as corn oil used in frying.  Once you have a large ware house of fat cells your capacity to store body fat is greatly increased.  You can manipulate cell size by making them collectively shrink and that is how we lower body fat levels.  Furthermore fill fat cells with their desired essential fatty acid materials found in Alpha Omega M3 ‘s specific proprietary ratios and this cements a huge barrier to future body fat accumulation even when diet is less than perfect for stretches of time.

Stop Giving In to Stress Cravings

Highly stressed people often binge and their sources are typically highly refined foods which have tons of fat storing attributes, but the trouble does not end there.  The left over toxins, trans fats etc. lodge in the fat cells forcing an unwanted expansion and inhibit the use of stored materials as fuel.  The best way to get these cells back into fat burning mode is to purge the garbage with a high dosage of Alpha Omega M3 to not only change the raw material landscape, but to also optimize the hormonal environment- limiting the fat storing impact of stress.  Optimizing insulin sensitivity can stop hunger and cravings in their tracks quickly getting rid of the greatest barriers to success.

Shut of Belly Fat Storage Receptors

Men have a high density of fat storage receptors in the mid-section that are activated by poor hormonal conditions such as excessive physical and emotional stress. We use Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night Time formulas to shut off the fat storage receptors and accelerate fat burning through several proven metabolic and hormonal pathways. The Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time formula is especially potent for those who do not wake up feeling well rested which indicates sleep quality is not good enough to properly regenerate hormone levels.
