   Fitness!


     

 

 

This page exists to give me a convenient way of keeping track of my own fitness program. I started using a program developed by Anthony Ellis for skinny guys, based on EAS's Body for Life. But, since my metabolism has slowed down since 2000, I had to modify this to include some intense cardo to help me get rid of some initial fat. Here are the highlights of the base program:

  • 2 weeks for intense cardio phase and basic strength training
  • 12 weeks for workout phase: 10 for mass gain, 2 for fat loss
  • 6 meals per day, one every three hours
  • 3 anarobic workouts per week: Mon, Wed, Fri
  • 3 aerobic workouts per week in the morning, before breakfast: Tue, Thurs, Sat
  • Uses creatine, vanadyl sulfate, and L-glutamine as natural supplements to normal food
  • ~100 oz. of water per day
  • 1 gram of protein for each lb of body weight
  • Significant calorie intake

The last time I did this program, it was based on having a very high metabolism, and gaining weight was immensely difficult. Since then, I have permanently changed my body and instead of being a scrawny 133 lbs wet, I am steady at 155 lbs. So, to help keep from getting fat on the program, I will be doing more cardio in the 12 week workout phase than before (which was nearly cardio-free). I am tracking my progress so that I can see how well his methods work for me.

My last program showed me that I can in fact change my body with focused and intense effort. Living in Florida took a major toll on my body, so I intend to get myself back to a nice physic, and stay that way.
