Another week into the Mission to Regain Focus and I have made some good progress on my weight training. I have also dialed in my nutrition. We are going to watch for a few weeks to see how my body responds (The Experiment of One) and then make adjustments.
I want everyone to meet the guy helping me through all of this. Ryan Miller from Growth Stimulus Training and I have hooked up to get me into the greatest shape I have ever been in. The short term goal is to get back the focus I had and get lean. The long term goal is to potentially get me up on stage again. Ryan's approach is one I like very much. He has a reason for everything he does and he doesn't have any problem explaining those reasons when asked. I will not be posting actual workouts, but I will show you the progress on my weights. I am also going to publicize my nutritional averages so that you can see how things are changing and working together to accomplish that change.
The Training Plan
Right now I am weight training 4 times a week with a very intense program that changes up weekly ever so slightly. I am doing one HIIT cardio session each week and up to 120 minutes of low intensity steady state cardio (LISS) each week. I am enjoying the training program a great deal.
My Nutrition Dialed In
Last week I began at 254 lbs. and wound up at 254.4 lbs, an increase of 0.16%. My average calories were 2683. That broke down to 33.3% protein, 43.2% carbohydrates and 28.4% fat. The key here is that I am hitting my macros and I feel amazing.
I feel as though I have already regained my focus. I am busily completing weight training and cardio sessions as scheduled. I am eating well. It is all coming together.
