Before’n’After #102 Interview – Florian Rau

Before'n'After #102 Interview – Florian Rau

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your everyday life

I'm 27 years old and I'm a student. At the same time, I am the manager of a fitness studio. My everyday life has a high stress level due to my tasks at work + additional studies. Strength training is a fundamental part for me.

How did you come across the Before'n'After program?

Through a very good friend who learned from you himself and can be measured.

Which sport did you do before the Before'n'After program?

weight training.

What motivated you to start and follow the program?

Before starting the program, my stress levels were extremely high, which is why I had put on an awful lot of fat. Due to a house clearance of my deceased father, which should last more than 6 weeks + new task as a studio manager alongside my studies, during which I was thrown in at the deep end and, in addition to personnel responsibility, etc., I first had to familiarize myself with it. Since I had already done strength training before and this also corresponds to my professional interest, it was then time for me to get back in shape and develop myself further.

How did your sleep develop during the program?

I get up every day, including weekends, between 6 and 7 a.m. and sleep through the night. The last time I could do that was when I was 10!

How did your energy level develop during the program?

My energy level is vastly improved. A recurring everyday fatigue is very rare today. Before the BnA program, that was the rule.

What was the biggest change for you?

Having to spend less money on coffee because it is no longer 8 cups a day and investing the money saved in better quality food.

What's your favorite breakfast?

Ground beef + plant patties.

How often and for how long did you train?

4x week. 1 hour per workout.

What is your favorite exercise?

Squats in all their variations.

Have you also done endurance training to lose fat?

NO. Pfff…

What is the reaction of your environment to the change in the last few weeks/months?

"Bro sry we haven't seen each other for a long time, so I didn't say hello back. I didn't recognize you at first." The response is outstanding.

And what happens now?

Improving skinfolding and therefore body fat even further, the next stage being deadlifts triple bodyweight and squats 2.5 times. Go on…
