The Program Hopper

Your answers indicate you want to transform your body.

But you find yourself constantly changing it up, which is preventing you from making long-term progress.

The program hopper has talent and good knowledge of how to build muscle, lose fat, and improve performance, but they lack the wisdom to see what knowledge should be applied and when.

When should you build muscle?

When should you train to get dick-skin shredded?

The program hopper consumes a ton of information.

They read all the articles.

They see all the social media posts.

They watch all the videos.

But they’re walking down a dangerous path.

They tend to mix and match workout programs and diets, mixing a bit of each into something that entertains them and “should” help them build muscle, improve athleticism, lose fat, and optimize health–at the same time.

Men who program hop will see an event on their schedule and decide “Shoot, I’ve got to get lean ASAP.” Soon after, they feel small, and decide it’s time to bulk again. For the next four weeks. Before the next event.

This is a slippery slope because despite their good intentions, they’re never giving their body time to change.

Without help, the program hopper starts feeling dejected, as if they’ve tried everything and nothing works for them.

This isn’t their fault per se. They’re SO close it hurts.

They have the ambition and enough knowledge, but they lack wisdom to execute the perfect plan for themselves consistently and until they do, they’ll continue spinning their wheels but going in circles.

The Program Hopper Remedy

The program hopper needs a coach to give them the right advice at the right time.

Much like you’re careful (I hope) to not consume too many drugs and alcohol, you should be careful on the amount of information you consume. Program hoppers should pick 1-2 superior sources of information, and ditch the rest.

That means unsubscribe from emails, watch fewer videos, and follow fewer “influencers” on social media.

They need the accountability to stay focused on one goal at a time.

The truth is, what got you to where you are will not continue to get you results. Because you’re no longer a true beginner, progress will take longer and you’ll need to have more focus on a specific goal.

The program hopper needs someone they trust to someone to provide clarity and a custom plan to attack their goals and keep them focused.

Program hoppers often have clarity and discipline, but they need an expert strategy, an outside set of eyes to navigate roadblocks, while reducing anything that’s incongruent with their goals from their plan.

This person already has clarity, discipline, and a proven strategy.

Now they need outside eyes to optimize all components and set themselves up for success.

Without the right coach, the program hopper will spin their wheels for months or years on end. Yes, they’ll work hard. But because they constantly change what they’re doing, they’ll never make significant progress towards getting bigger, stronger, leaner, or healthier.

But with the right plan? They’ll become a success story like Dave Jarvis from Connecticut.

Success Story

When Dave came into the Bach Performance Physique Coaching Program, he had the “I’ve tried it all feeling.”

What he started with wasn’t working any more. He continued to piece together workouts from the past while playing basketball during his lunch hour.

The problem?

He never focused on losing fat or building muscle individually…he kept going back and forth between the two.

The key to Dave’s success wasn’t to try and LOSE FAT and build muscle at the same time…it was to go all in one one goal at a time with a focused plan.

So, what happened?

We created a focused, video guided plan for Dave to lift four days per week.

For his diet we used intermittent fasting and a high-protein diet to preserve (and even build) lean muscle while getting lean. Here’s a snapshot of his results.

On August 20th Dave was 250 lbs, about 28% body fat and a lean body mass of 185 lbs. About eight weeks later, Dave checked in at 240 lbs, 20% body fat, and a lean body mass of 189 lbs.

While we couldn’t account for water weight, Dave lost roughly 14 pounds of non-muscle mass (fat and water) while actually gaining four pounds of muscle.

When it comes to transforming your body, focus on one goal at a time. If you do it correctly, you’ll find yourself making progress in other areas as well.
