Today was a rest day for me. I've moved my rest day around a little because of the double cardio I do on non-workout days. By doing this, I get to do a double cardio on the weekend and that makes it easier for me.
I'm really proud of the members of the Shredder Council. They all know what makes themselves tick and are ready to take action to amplify that. Yesterday I posted about my goals needing to be my own. It goes even deeper than that. I can't do things just because someone else wants me to. For instance, if someone else wanted me to lose weight, it isn't going to happen just because of that. It only happens when I really want it badly.
I'm in a really good mood after the measurements I took yesterday. I am continuing to focus on Metabolic Surge's nutritional program, avoiding the exercise routine completely. I found that I have the same eBook Adam Waters must have because he is using the single exercise focus that I found in this eBook called Muscle Explosion. I swear I've been addicted to eBooks on fitness. I've finally decided to stop buying anything else on topics I already have.
Speaking of eBooks, I am working on my own eBook right now. I am also doing my planning for the next podcast. I hope you enjoyed my last podcast on my favorite exercises. I am trying to think of a way to link the podcasts to the eBook idea. I'm learning right now (through a paperback I'm reading) that I have figured out a need, I've decided how my eBook should meet that need, but now I need to figure out how to offer value to the eventual customer. I feel this is very important because I find that most fitness eBooks regurgitate the same information. That is not value if you ask me. I will continue to brainstorm on that issue and when the product is finally complete, I know my potential customers will be receiving an incredible value for their money.
I just finished reading an article in Muscle & Fitness about the recent Mr. Olympia contest. It was very interesting to see the take of the author on what transpired. Some say that Victor Martinez should have taken the Sandow instead of Jay Cutler. I think Victor looked better on the first night, but Jay put it all together and fast. He looked dominant on the final day and that's why he won.
In another article I read that Jay Cutler's gym had ordered him special 230 pound dumbbells to use when doing shrugs. I am amazed at that. He uses dumbbells that weigh more than me! Simply incredible!
