12 Week Cut Phase

As summer draws near it comes time to once again shed the gained pounds during the winter bulk phase in order to function better as the weather heats up, and to look good at the pool.  My plan will consist of alternating between 2 workouts for each mustcle group every other week.  For example:
Sunday - Legs plan A
Monday- Arms plan B

Plan A will consist of straight sets with heavy weight for 8-10 reps usually 4 sets for 4-5 exercises
Plan B will super-set all exercises

Of course my weight lifting will be augmented with my Pre-Ranger program I run for 2nd Lieutenants (which currently is focusing on building core strength and improving our cardiovascular endurance)

The diet portion has been pretty tricky to plan as I am in the process of trying out a vegetarian diet, but will help from websites like KarmaChow which posts awesome recipes it is starting to come together.  Specific details posted Sunday when I will begin.

8 Weeks of Growth Phase has Ended

8 weeks ago I started a growth phase to gain 12 to 17lbs, I started at 208lbs and this morning I weigh in at 221lbs, Success.  Tomorrow I start my 12 weeks phase to shred the extra body fat I gained in preparation for summer.

How will I do it?  Well for the next 21 days I am going to become a vegetarian (not a vegan), I will still eat animal bi-products i.e. milk, cottage cheese, etc, why?  I like to know not believe.  If someone tells me that eating like a vegetarian will make me feel better then I want to know for sure and the only way to know is to do.

Information is key, with information you can use all of it, none of it, or some of it.  If I receive information and after using it realize it is garbage then I can simply check it off my list and now I know.

I'm sure it will be tricky in the beginning, finding new recipes, new foods to dial in my diet.  Life is about adventure and every time you start a new diet or workout program it is an adventure.

Break your plateau!

Charlie,

Dude you need to get your life together.  You make like $40million per year hire me for $200k I'll come out and kick your ass into shape.  You need help and for small chump change I'll provide.
