"Gain 20 lbs of muscle in 20 days!"
"Don't do cardio and lose body fat faster than ever before!"
"Lift light weights for better growth!"
"Lift heavy weights for better growth!"
What are you supposed to believe? It is no wonder that most people are completely confused by the information available today. It is also no wonder that most people look the same today as they did a year ago when they started down the road towards a new body. They jump from plan to plan, never seeing real results. Yes, part of the problem is that most people don't exercise with enough intensity to make a difference, but it is also because of the confusion that is caused by the so-called fitness experts. These people will do anything for a buck and when you examine their claims carefully it becomes painfully obvious.
How are you to avoid the confusion? Find out what the real pros have done. No, I don't mean run out and buy Muscle & Fitness or some other body building rag. I mean find somebody who has been there and ask them how they got there. You will be surprised by the information they will give you. You will be even more surprised by the results you will get by following their suggestions.
You don't need an army to back you up on this, but that wouldn't hurt. The battle has begun, so why not join the fight?
Today was an interval cardio day. I did my usual interval on a bike. I got the heart rate up to 145 BPM and held it there for 2 minutes. I then allowed my body to recover back down to 105 BPM and repeated the cycle for 30 minutes.
What one person can do well many people working together can do even better.

Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
