One of the brightest elitefts™ team members was power-bodybuilder and nutrition guru to the nutrition gurus, Justin Harris. Justin was a successful athlete, bodybuilder, and powerlifter. His true legacy was not just what he accomplished himself as a multi-iron sport athlete, but the success of all of the lifters he has worked with and the lasting impact of his nutrition strategies that continues today.

In Part 2, we present two of Justin's articles, both of which provide great info on training and nutrition. We follow that up with a playlist of nine short video clip from one of his seminars.


Someone asked me about my thoughts on tweaking the DC training program. He was having some difficulties getting his numbers up but was worried about not following the program to the letter.

If you are new to the site, or some how missed Justin's contributions, this is a great information resource that you should check out. His contributions also serve as a great refresher for those that followed his work when he was a regular part of elitefts™. While Justin has devoted himself to his family and advancing his education, the nutrition principals he shared still have a profound influence on the industry.

Comprehensive Performance Nutrition

From Justin: The objective of this book is to present a comprehensive overview of performance-guided nutrition and training in an easy-to-follow question and answer format. I have spent much of my life learning and developing my interest in nutrition. I have often wished for an easy-to-follow guide that would allow me to continue my knowledge growth in brief periods of time. I believe this book will provide much benefit to the readers interested in developing their own knowledge base on training and nutrition.

In this book, you will find definable answers to many real-word questions your peers have posed to me over the years. Topics Include: Fat Loss, Off-season Dieting, General Nutrition, Supplements, Powerlifting, and Training. Over 120 Pages
