The Muscle Building Fat Burning Video Blog #107
Today I spent a little bit of time thinking about the future and what it holds. I am approaching this next year with both excitement and fear. It is a huge undertaking, but a step I’ve wanted to take for a long time.
I have had a few people ask me what made me decide to do this right now. The answer is pretty simple. I was listening to an old podcast from Skip Lacour and he made a very salient point. He said that goals involve setting a date and going for it. He used the example of a bodybuilding competition as a goal that people always make, but rarely fulfill. He said that the reason they never achieve their goal of being on stage at a competition is that they never really pick a competition and a date. He said by picking a competition and a date you lock that into your brain which then goes to work making it happen.
To me it came down to accountability. Skip is absolutely right. By setting a date I am forced to achieve what I want to achieve—getting up on stage and winning a bodybuilding competition in my age group. Thus, I decided to step up and just do it. I set the date and then asked Carlos DeJesus to train me. He graciously agreed and began to give me advice right away.
As it is Monday, I am doing my Matty update.
He is joining me on the new workout program. He is excited because he really wasn’t loving the Combat the Fat workout at all.
He and I sat down and went over the new workout. Together we decided that we needed to do 2 “warm up” workouts before the real deal starts. We both felt that after 12 weeks of the Combat the Fat training we should ease ourselves back into the High Intensity Training mode. As a result, we plan to do a HIT workout tomorrow and again on Thursday.
Matty has lost several inches in his abdominal area. The Combat the Fat workout definitely works to strip the fat off your body and Matty is a perfect example of that. We have mutually agreed to continue the cardio portions of the Combat the Fat training as we move forward.
Today we hit the gym in the morning and did a 60 minute Combat the Fat training session. This cardio session is designed so well. It makes an hour seem like just a few minutes, but at the end I am saturated with sweat. The intensity is incredible and yet it is all low intensity cardio. Pretty amazing how that works!
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
