My Official FIRST Magazine Appearance

March 29, 2011 by Joey Vaillancourt · 262 Comments 

This past Sunday started like any other day until I discovered something…

I got an email from a friend who snapped a quick pic of a page of a Magazine called Sweat Equity, you know, the same mag I shot for back in November?

At first, I didn’t think much of it until I realized it was my photo and article that made it in the magazine. How cool is that?

Sure, I shot with them in November alongside a big name in the fitness industry but there was NO guarantee that I would actually make the cut and get in .

But I did, and this was my first MAGAZINE feature and it felt great!

It’s got me super motivated to continue challenging myself and chasing bigger goals in the coming year including possibly competing at a bigger competition next fall. But that is still undecided as I am totally SWAMPED with things like moving, starting a new business building a gym and many more things.

Now, I received quite a few additional emails since people have seen the magazine feature and I wanted to quickly give you a recap of how I got ready for this shoot

It was pretty simple actually…

=====================================
Secrets that Got Me in my first Magazine Feature
=====================================

1. I set a goal that I wanted to get in a magazine this year

I know that it might sound hard to actually do, but I made that goal relevant to where I was at in my experience in the industry, training and my contacts.

A few years ago, I would have never made a goal like that since it wasn’t as attainable at the time. Set goals that will force you to make big leaps but at the same time are achievable basedon your level in the game.
I gained quite a bit of muscle mass and used it to my advantage before starting into my cutting plan.

It’s all about building STEPS to success.

2. I put on weight in anticipation of cutting back down with more muscle.

Click HereI only learned of the photoshoot opportunity about 8 weeks before the actual shoot and since I was already pretty ripped, I decided to add some mass using Bones To Buff for the first 4 weeks.

3. During my cutting plan, I basically used a proven method that always gets me ripped only this time I began using some recipes from one of my friend’s yet to be released fat loss recipe books, Metabolic Cooking (check your emails next week!!)

These recipes (not released yet) were one of my secret weapons in shedding the fat this time around while staying SANE!

You see, I don’t normally cheat when cutting…not because I can’t but just because I don’t like to..it messes with my mental state and I like to keep everything calculated (personal preference).

But, Metabolic Cooking allowed me to include a variety of foods that I would throw in every other day to keep things ‘fresh’.

Thanks to The Muscle Cook for my advanced copy of his book.

4. I used a very intensive 7 day prep plan during the final week to get into photoshoot shape.

I use this 7 day plan every time I do a shoot or a show and everytime, it brings out my absolute BEST body…I’m talking ripped abs, tight skin, big pumps and veins popping!! Oh yeah!

It deals with water manipulation, sodium loading and depletions, card loading, supplements to pull temporarily store more glycogen and make everything come together for one BIG day!

Kinda complicated stuff that I have come to understand from trial and error and from learning from others but…

I actually just finished reviewing a product which is a really Done For You type of program called Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer and besides being a great muscle building plan, it basically has software program that determines a 7 Day prep FOR You. You just plug in your info and it spits out a 7 day plan for you to follow and it covers EVERYTHING you need to know.
 
This is something I plan to design one day and sell myself, but since I haven’t completed it, and I know his program is legit, it might be something you want to check out.

The Muscle Maximizer 7 Day Photoshoot Plan [Software that Generates your plan automatically]

5. Probably the best part of getting ready for a shoot it the REBOUND!

After a week of shooting for Inside Fitness, Sweat Equity and other shoots, my friend and I decided to indulge a bit…OK, maybe a LOT!

I spent the good part of the next 3 weeks testing a new program that uses the Re-Bound period post-photoshoot to build muscle maximizing on the anabolic effects of insulin sensitivity.

And you may recall that I gained 10lbs in the first 21 days, then gained another 4.2lbs in the following 3 week cycle.

This is by far my FAVORITE phase…Re-bounding. And I thought it was pretty cool that my fellow fitness experts came up with a cycle program to replicate that phase again and again with their 21 Day Fast Mass Building program.

All in all, this was a BIG achievement for me and it is one that has made me set my sights on one day landing a cover…

Hey, it could happen :-)

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have congratulated me and listed me as a form of inspiration…

Your kind words never go un-noticed. Thank you.

Hope you continue on this journey with me and I trust my info will help you reach many of your fitness goals too!

    attorney. Find a firm that is uncomplicated to get in touch with no matter whether it be above
    the cell phone, e-mail, or on line.

  4. Through the a long time, I’ve experienced many great professionals asking me “How appear no government research business contacted me about a task?” and these were
    not complaints coming only from center administration, but GM amount much too, who,
    ironically, when seeking to fill a management placement inside
    of their company, instantly grew to become noticeable and were being assaulted by government search firms
    promising to uncover them the greatest candidates
    on the market. “How can I rely on these companies that appear so great on paper and have such good displays, when, in actuality, none of them contacted me as a likely prospect in 1 of their tasks? And I have achievements composed all more than my job.”

    “Simply because there are so a lot of excellent specialists on the sector it tends to make it tough to arrive at everybody” – would be
    a poor reply. My advice is to keep away from
    any company that is trying to provide this
    to you. Why? For the reason that this is particularly what they’re
    intended to do. That is why legitimate govt search corporations do
    not count on networking only, but have exceptional Searchers and state-of-the-art market mappings.
    Just simply because anyone is an introvert with a closed social circle and does
    not get the job done for a corporation that is by itself a “management model”,
    will not indicate one cannot be the suitable prospect in a
    project, even in 1 for this kind of a corporation. But, once
    more, only Govt Research corporations would do this, as opposed to straightforward volume recruitment corporations that have distinct performing ideas,
    or the dreadful no matter what they contact people entities that offer resumes of individuals they will not
    even know. The government research companies have no
    justification for not having achieved you and they will often admit it and accept your critique.
    Whoever commences telling you they’re on sooo a lot pressure, you see it
    is really the disaster, the canine ate their research, the neighbor’s cat
    meowed all night time, or it is really for the reason that of the
    snow that came too early this calendar year in December…
    is not anyone you want to examine your long term with.

    So, they have no excuse. Except… seem at it this way: throughout an government look for challenge, the agency gets an addendum
    to the company consumer.

    The company consumer is, of system, represented by the Hiring Manager and the HR Supervisor.
    When drawing up the preferred profile for the vacant place, there is commonly a clash in opinions on the subject matter of the right competencies.
    The HR Manager will emphasize the require for gentle, identity related capabilities,
    occasionally searching to harmony the workforce (obtaining in head the current members), and will be inclined to psychological subjectivity.

    On the other hand, the Employing Supervisor, pressed by the will need of fast success, will seem for a
    portfolio and will be inclined to achievements subjectivity (or what he/she
    believes to set off fast achievements for him/her). Due to the fact final
    results matter the most in the finish (nobody’s hiring to cheering up the ambiance at
    do the job, ideal? or at least not however!), the
    HR Supervisor typically gives in and the portfolio prevails.

    (Certainly, at times they do agree and they’re referred
    to as delighted exceptions to the rule).

    Little corporations commonly do not make investments in govt look for projects,
    possibly mainly because of the charges or for the reason that of the poly-valence
    of the staff members, anticipated to and ready to just take
    on additional obligations for as extensive as it will take until the correct
    particular person joins them. And for the reason that
    the HR Professionals are envisioned to do the exact and
    fill the position by them selves. (Although the new yrs have inspired significant firms to faucet into this entrepreneurial mentality as properly) So, assume the shopper powering an executive research job to be
    a massive firm/company.

    Now corporations have a specific rhythm and a precise lifestyle.
    For them to hire the prospect that’s most possible to convey them all those instant success they uncover it easier to
    search to firms that are very identical to them – and not only in rhythm and
    staff intellect established, but those that produce and
    put into action comparable projects and use equivalent
    equipment in the system. So, when expressing their demands to their temporary addendum, they point to sturdy choices for candidates coming
    from these “mirroring” organizations. Or, in some scenarios, question to see only this
    kind of candidates.

    You could say, harshly, that they are not searching for The
    Man or woman who possesses the know how, they are on the lookout for What Their Levels of competition Is familiar with and is
    enclosed in a particular person. And the government look for consultant is
    your typical consultant, that means most of them will do particularly as
    they are explained to and nothing far more.
    Since they feel that if they do that, they’ll retain their customer satisfied and
    get the cash, consequently currently being joyful themselves.
    And they’re going to by no means attain you mainly because there is really a handful of “branded” specialists prepared to
    make a move. So what transpires is that, for the duration of
    the several years, the huge providers just pass on a few experts from
    1 another. Really amusingly, the identical. Which is likely what govt
    search started with, significant organizations
    wanting to “steal” managers from each other and
    finding an stylish way of doing it! The level is that couple of consultants will be
    ready to crack this schedule of the exact same outdated same old.
    And number of consultants would not be searching
    after private passions (putting a close friend, a relative, a previous customer that will give them a lot more recruitment jobs and many others etc.) And only quite few are consultants who really consult the shopper.

    Most of them are recruiters, even if their posture appears pompous like Running a little something or Senior no matter what.

    What you will need to so is get in touch with consultants.
    A recruiter will by no means care to notify a corporate customer seeking
    to use a brand, that you are The Brand even though it does not generate so on your enterprise card.

    Now, how do you identify your executive lookup advisor?

    they’re straightforward (they are going to convey to you
    your level of accomplishment and reveal why)

    they are respectful (interest, language, behavior, not preserving you
    wait for them and many others.)

    they are smart and seasoned (they’ll in no way inquire concerns examining an interviewing questionnaire or the place you see you
    in five yrs from now)

    they listen and constantly ask thoughts that establish this to you, while the explanation they talk to is
    since they are intrigued

    if they make a decision to shortlist you, they will support you “sell” oneself
    superior and operate with you on your development desires

    during a undertaking, they retain frequent call with you (you will not have
    to get in touch with them right after two months to acquire no response)

    they give you real suggestions that assists you admit what
    you need to do the job on to evolve

    they are willing to meet you even when they do not have a project for you.
    Any expert expressing “I don’t have the time, you know the canine, the cat bla bla” is not a marketing consultant –
    is a recruiter. Any particular person who is not inclined to crack a
    modest plan to see you will not have the guts to break a bigger routine and tell the shopper providing him
    the dollars that you, the non-branded, are The Brand itself.
    They may not see you straight away, but they will.
    Contact them. Make a list with your nearby executive look for corporations, go through about them on the online, selected from them or just ship emails to everyone,
    it can be your connect with.

    Allow me remind you that sending out your resume to executive research corporations with an invitation for
    a meeting in no way does undermine your worth as a qualified, worth
    of becoming “hunted”! I remember I saw this stupid incorporate from
    a business that reported anything like “You should not send us your resume. If you are good, we will locate you.” Genuinely??

    Wow, who would have thought that a (in all probability) 3 man or woman condominium company can be so
    telepathic? Truthfully, just get out there, make yourselves regarded,
    simply because there are executive look for firms that do the job with specialists
    and not enterprise portfolios that come under a human title.
    I am individually weary of seeing the identical faces above and more than again on the transfer.
    And you know what? These “stars” are not even pleasurable men and women to be around, most of them are conceited and arrogant.
    Very well… all suitable, this aspect is
    me making an attempt to give you a boost in assurance and deliver a smile to your confront.

    Is it performing?

  5. Window cleansing is an vital portion of your household chores.
    Each residence cleans their home windows, at distinct moments each and every
    working day and on alternate times. No subject how frequently you clean up
    your windows, it is important to comprehend that the distinct kinds of windows in your house or your auto need to have a distinctive sample of cleansing.

    fact they are way too solid for your tinted home windows and can even damage the
    tint to a specified extent with extended use. So, use a mild cleaning soap to cleanse your tinted home windows and get stunning, cleanse windows.
