Operation Get Swole was launched as a clean bulkng mission and also a test for my contest preparation strategies. Unfortunately, as I mentioned in my initial report, life began to get in the way immediately. I had to make some major decisions that took my focus off the task at hand and now I am done with that distraction. I am now ready to focus on my contest preparation strategies and getting into the leanest shape I've ever been in over the next 8 weeks. From today through April 21, 2013 I will be working hard to make a difference with my body and I will be sharing my successes and failures right here on this site.
Fail Many Times
Success is just a string of failures that you learn from until you manage to get it right. I am not afraid to admit to these failures because I know they have taught me the things I need to know in order to succeed. The plan remains exactly as I originally outlined. I am simply reloading and refocusing on the goal at hand. This time I will forge ahead regardless of the circumstances. Life promises to be difficult in front of me, but I am ready to tackle the challenges head on and get this task done.
Let's Learn Together
I would really love the encouragement and support of my readers. We can learn together as I go through this process. It is going to be an amazing laboratory experiment. My good friend, Carlos DeJesus, would say this is an Experiment of One. It is about me figuring out what works and what does not work for me. It is my body and only I can tell what is working properly. I am trying many different strategies, but they are not haphazard. They have been chosen because of previous feedback my body has given me. For instance, I know that I can train my biceps heavy and get no results or I can train them light and get no results, but when I train them twice in a week — once heavy and once for the pump — I see immediate changes in them.
Hold me accountable to my plans. I am setting them out and want to be held accountable for their completion. It is all about getting this done and getting it done now. Stop by and read the blog. Follow me on Twitter — @mikemahony. You will be able to keep an eye on my progress and you can make comments on all the Operation Get Swole posts.
Fitness Expose has changed its focus in 2013. It is now a bodybuilding laboratory and I am the lab rat. I am going to make major changes to my body this year. I will grow bigger and get more defined. I will keep that appearance even when not preparing for a contest. I will give you articles that teach you how to do the same thing. I will shatter the bodybuilding myths and promote the reputable information. We will still discuss the reputable few. We will remain focused on integrity and honesty. Let's get this laboratory into high gear!
