Derek Dodson began his training at 162 lb.   During his dual coaching (macros + programming), we were able to incorporate a steady building phase (of muscle) followed by a gradual cut.  Derek maintained the strength he had achieved during his build all throughout his cut.   After 10 months, Derek weighed in at 155lb both leaner and stronger. 

Before macro coaching, Derek was on your typical bro and starve diet. Eating chicken breast and enough rice for ants. The only major adjustments Derek had to make was gradually eat more and trim the chest hair every other weekend.
