A bit about Kris Gethin

If you are a passionate bodybuilder who has frequented sites like, then you will be well aware of who Kris Gethin is. He has published numerous articles on the art of bodybuilding, and his workout videos have helped to guide millions of people worldwide.

In fact, his 3 most popular video series have a combined view count of more than 150 million! This includes the 4Weeks2shred trainer, The Hardcore Trainer and The Muscle Building Trainer. Kris first started out with weight lifting after suffering a motocross injury. He found that lifting weights was a great form of therapy and his body soon grew stronger than ever before.

From there, he became his own test subject. He spent years learning how to gain muscle fast, shred weight and how to do so in a safe and effective way. After working as a massage therapist and personal trainer, he soon started to expand his follower base by developing the sorts of training programmes he is best known for: such as the Dramatic Transformation Principle (DTP).

DTP can be implemented in a few ways, but leads to lightning fast results if performed quickly. It means working out both slow and fast-twitch muscle fibers through high-intensity workouts. This has the added effect of helping users to shred fat and become leaner. You can learn more about DTP here.
