6 month recomp program

Posted: December 9, 2016 in Fat Burning, Muscle Building

After an up and down 2016, I’ve finally decided upon a direction to take my fitness/physique.

Here are the guiding principles…

First and foremost, I want to embrace change. I want to do what so many seem to have difficulty doing these days which is to try something outside of what we believe to be the “right” way to do things, as Stephen R. Covey said “Every significant breakthrough began with a break in old ways of thinking.”

Mental principles:
1. The primary goal is to slowly burn fat – about 3lbs per month
2. The secondary goal is to build muscle size – especially shoulders and back.

Dietary principles:
1. chicken and rice with steamed broccoli as a regular meal
2. majority of protein to be lean meat (fish & chicken)
3. post workout banana then protein/green powder
4. majority of carbs to be taken post training
5. Use portion sizes rather than calorie counting

Training Principles:
1. Form matters
2. train in all three primary rep ranges
3. value of metabolic stress/progression – utilize density training to increase progressively in metabolic expenditure & volume
4. De-load every fourth week
5. Increase load following de-load weeks

It’s all probably a little abstract at this point, but the fact of the matter is that I have no idea if this program will prove to be effective or not. If it is I will write it out in an easier to comprehend format.

For the time being here are a couple of the video blogs I’ve started for the program…
