Muscle UP!!!!!!!

Muscle UP!

Well here it is friends, PART 2!!! Are you as excited as I am? So first off, thank you all for following me during Part 1.  I hope you truly enjoyed the beginnings of this transformation and if you thought part 1 was great just wait till I bust out part 2!

So basically Part 2 is now until the end of February.  During Part 2 I need to build as much lean muscle as possible. I’ve got a little over 79 days to build, build some more and then add some more mass, just for fun. The more lean muscle tissue I can put on my frame, the more Coach Steve

Well...if you can't, you can't.

Well…if you can’t, you can’t.

and I have to work with come Part 3 in February.Part 2 is going to be very different.  First off, I get to eat a lot more! No, I can’t pig out on whatever I want, but I don’t have to worry about biting my nails till my next meal. The workouts are also going to be different, these as Coach Steve said are going to be the most intense workouts I have ever done. Why? Because they are going to be HEAVY!! I will be pushing and pulling heavier weight than I ever have before. My splits will change on a week to week basis, with my reps ranging from 6 to 10 reps over 4 sets. That is way different from the 12 to 15 moderate weight I was doing the last few weeks of Fall. My workouts will also focus more on compound movements trying to get the most bang for my muscle in every movement. Squats, Deadlifts, Pull Ups, Bent Over Row, Bench Press, all movements that require a lot of muscles working together to push or pull the weight. Like Coach said, the most intense workouts I have ever done.

As for my meal plan I’m still eating high quality nutrient dense foods. I can have a cheat meal here and there unlike Part 1, but again, (more…)


Obesity Stats PostThere’s a “Fat” epidemic and we need to take control with spreading the awareness!  It’s not just about leading a “fit” lifestyle in our Fitastic community, it’s about helping those around us and taking them with us.  2 out of 3 Americans are NOW overweight, our expanding waistlines have reached epidemic proportions.  Don’t you (and the one’s close to you) deserve to be more than a FAT Statistic?
Whether it’s 5 or 50 pounds, slimming down isn’t just a vanity project.  It’s the most important decision in your life to fulfill how you deserve to look and feel.
According to a recent study from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 69% of Americans are overweight or obese, putting them at greater risk for stroke, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes… Sobering statistics!  If we continue growing at our current pace, an estimated half of Americans will be obese by 2030. It’s easy to see why with reality shows like Addicted to Food, gimmicky fast food campaigns that lure us into supersizing our meals and drinks, and even the current accessibility to have your fast food delivered to your front door.  Not to mention our resistance to fight these sensational options by trying every fad diet that comes along leading to a roller coaster of numbers on the scale, slowing of metabolism, and a host of unhealthy habits that are seriously hard to break.  Meanwhile, our daily lives have become increasingly sedentary- The average American clocks in 55 hours per week behind a desk.

The good news is that you’re being introduced to a Fitastic community and program that can change your life and help rewrite your future with one positive habit at a time.  Register at feelfitastic.com (for Free) and check in often to jump start your NEW YOU!

Here is one of the greatest truths you will ever learn about nutrition and exercise: There is no single best way!

Since there is such a wide range of different body types, you should always view “absolutes” with great caution. When it comes to nutrition and exercise, be very suspicious of the words “never” and “always.”

The most common example of absolutes is the advice that “carbohydrates will make you fat.” This sends people – of all body types – into a state of total fear of carbohydrates. For someone to lump all people into a single category and make the sweeping proclamation that carbohydrates make you fat, totally fails to take into account the issue of metabolic individuality.
