One of the stated goals of Fitness Exposé is to help people get into the best shape of their lives. I have developed a program that does just that and I am going to be the guinea pig over the next 90 days. I started Mission Best Ever on October 17, 2015 and it will end on January 16, 2015, my 51st birthday. At that point I will be in the best shape I have ever been in. It is the start of something big for me and for Fitness Exposé.
Mission Best Ever: Starting Point
I started out this journey at 261.4 lbs and 25% body fat. I let myself go after my last mission and I am upset with myself for it, but this time I am going to get into even better shape than the last time. I am going to show off the hard work I have done to gain muscle. Below is my starting set of photos. I will be updating this weekly.
Mission Best Ever: The Goals
I am not making a body weight goal because I don't really feel that it matters. I am making a fat percentage goal because I want to be as lean as possible.
|Body Fat Percentage||10%|
|Workouts||I have trained every single day of the 90 day mission|
|Nutrition Plan||IIFYM with carb-cycling – 3500 calories|
Mission Best Ever: The Training Plan
I am going to be using Y3T for the first 9 weeks and then a full body HIT routine for the final 27 days. I have used Y3T in the past with great success. When handled properly it really leans me out and builds muscle.
I will use the off days to get some cardio in, so that means 3 days per week of cardio. I am planning to do some of this in the gym and some of it outside (if weather permits). I have found that I need cardio in order to get into the shape I want. My body doesn't do well with just weight training alone. I am a little impatient, so I will do the cardio, but keep an eye on myself so that I am not overdoing it.
Mission Best Ever: Supplementation
I am going to start out using the Commander Go Pack from 1stPhorm as a test. I am very interested in seeing how well it works in the first 30 days and will review the product for you on this site at the end of those 30 days. I will also be using a multi-vitamin from Kirkland and protein powder in addition to all the solid food I can stuff down my throat.
Mission Best Ever: Motivation
I have reconnected with a group of people over on Facebook and will be participating on a daily basis. I find that helping encourage others really also motivates me. It is something I both enjoy and need. I am looking forward to seeing the results these people achieve and will be cheering them on the entire way.
Mission Best Ever: Blogging
I thought about creating a separate blog to chronicle my results, but decided this was going to be the place. You can follow my progress by bookmarking https://fitnessexpose.com/category/mission-best-ever. Visit that link regularly and you will see my progress.
