Read the post by Adam Waters here.
Today was another great strength workout. I am starting to really enjoy the schedule I'm on switching between training with the trainer and doing my strength training. It really helps to keep me focused.
I also had a nice PACE session this afternoon. During that session I listened to more of the podcast with Dexter Jackson and Jay Cutler. It is awesome to hear the dedication these men have to the sport of bodybuilding. They obviously live and breathe it, but they are also fairly humble. Neither man wanted to admit that he was a favorite at the 2008 Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas, yet it will likely come down to them in the #1 and #2 slots. Watch and see!
I'm still really focused on the fact that I can and will do whatever it takes to achieve my goals. This crazy nutritional scheme I'm on just continues to amaze me. I keep losing fat and holding or increasing LBM and that's the goal ladies and gentlemen. I am excited that the planning and tinkering I've done is working and have decided to add a chapter to the eBook regarding this nutritional scheme. I am journaling my feelings and thoughts about it as I go along (thanks to Mike: Aussie Body Builder who inspired me to not only take daily uncovered pictures, but to journal my experience). I will use the journal to share my experience with you all when this is over.
God is with me on this one. Obviously carbs (as you can see from my ratios) are not as helpful for me as they could be. I wish I could reveal more, but I've actually come up with a plan for using this extreme approach on a regular basis once this experiment is done.
