Mission Best Ever Take Two has one week in the books and just eleven more to go. I even started an online Journal of Progress where I detail my daily thoughts, training, struggles and progress. Please make it a habit to read and comment on that journal as it is for my accountability as I go through this mission. My goal is to be in the best shape I've ever been in just 11 more weeks from today.
This week was spent fine tuning my nutrition and training. I spent time corresponding with the coach I selected especially for this mission. We discussed my goals and he put together a nutrition and training plan for me. I am quite interested in the nutritional approach he is using because it is just slightly different from what I would have expected. I am quite excited to see what the next couple of weeks hold for me.
The Training Split (For Now)
This should be quite a lot of fun because I will be hitting my legs twice in a week. That added volume should really spur growth in my legs. It is going to be very interesting because my legs usually respond really well to heavy weights. There are some exercises being thrown at me that I have not done on a regular basis (or at all).
The approach is similar to low carb dieting, but coach has thought through when I train and how to maximize energy. Certain nutrients are pushed towards the beginning of the day while other nutrients are towards the end of the day. It is not a cookie cutter approach as it takes into account my own personal needs. The idea is to eat and grow and watch the fat fall off. I am beyond excited!
While many might not see much progress in a week, I can see definite changes in my body in just one week.
Have a close look at my midsection last week and compare it to this week and I think you will see the progress I am mentioning! It excites me to see my body respond almost immediately. Things will only get better as we progress through the plan.
Best Shape Ever – Eleven Weeks to Go!
I have just 11 weeks until this mission is completed. I plan to be in the best shape I have ever been in my life. I have failed at this goal several times, but those failures have simply motivated me to get it this time around.
