I have finally concluded my planning for Mission 2. I have alot of changes I am going to be focusing on and alot of goals I want to hit in the next Mission. I've decided on alot of things.
Mission 2 – Length:
Like Mission 1, Mission 2 will be 100 days in length. It will begin on February 3, 2008 and end on May 13, 2008.
Mission 2 – Goals:
Specifically, I am going to do 4 weeks of cutting and 11 weeks of bulking during this mission. I want to pack on some serious muscle! Here is a chart that outlines some specific goals for Mission 2:
My specific goals are:
- Cut for 4 weeks (2/3/2008 thru 3/1/2008)
- Bulk for 11 weeks (3/2/2008 thru 5/13/2008)
- Body circumfrence:
- Biceps +1″
- Chest +1″
- Thighs +2″
- Calves +1″
- Abs -3″
Mission 2 – Nutrition:
I will be utilizing the Tom Venuto Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle nutrition plan. I will cycle my carbs and have a refeed day every fourth day. I will have a cheat meal every 12 days (3 cycles). In my new accountability planning chart I will get points for being within 5% (+/-) of my targeted calories for a given day
Mission 2 – Workouts:
I will use my New Rules of Lifting program during my cut phase of this mission and I will use Max-OT training principles for my bulking phase of this mission.
Mission 2 – Focus:
My focus will not be on the scale. The scale will give me a marker for my progress, but as you can see from my goals, I will intentionally weigh 6 pounds more at the end of Mission 2 than I will at the start of Mission 2. I will stay focused on my goals and achieve all of them. I will maintain my excitement and motivation as I move ahead into this next mission.
Mission 2 – Accountability:
I will continue to blog daily. I have posted my blog link on Facebook and am now including it in all personal email and all forum posts I do. This will up the accountability. All videos will have the blog link and eventually the website link as well. Your help is needed in the area of accountability. I know I can count on Mike Groom to push me hard on my plan, but I need as many people doing that as possible. Say it like you see it. Don't sugar coat anything. If I'm messing up, say so. I want you to be brutally honest.
The conclusion is that I've got my plan and now I have to work it and work it hard.
Until later…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
