Ep 74 – Cliff Wilson: The Art & Science of Natural Bodybuilding

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and today I’m joined by natural bodybuilder and contest prep coach, Cliff Wilson.

Cliff is a leading figure in the world of natural bodybuilding and has used a combination of scientific principles with newer, experience driven techniques to help amass over 100 pro cards, over 50 pro titles and multiple world champions.

In today’s episode we discuss the art of coaching, the psychology behind long term transformation success, as well as his unique peak week and dieting strategies. 

Cliff’s all about the 1%, and he leaves no stone unturned in today’s episode
