Aug 9th 2010, Day 8 = CHANGE of PLANS!


Alright, we are flipping the script on the plans for the rest of the year.  I was a few days into my metabolic conditioning workout phase BUT after a weekend of deep thought about what I want to accomplish long term I realized I was jumping the gun.  What I really need to do is regain the size I once had that allowed me to grace the covers of fitness magazines and consistently stand in the top three of fitness model competitions.  You see, since I transitioned to a plant eater (Raw Vegan) I have had my share of ups and downs.  What I came to realize this past weekend was I had been trying to do too much in a very little amount of time and my physique would have been portrayed as the typical skinny vegan.  Not something I want since my main goal is to prove otherwise.  So, as much as I hate working out the conventional bodybuilding way, I realize I must spend some time doing so.  However, I am incorporating some strength and power lifts at the beginning of each workout to keep my body somewhat functional.

*Please consult with a physician or any other health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises on your own. I will do my best to give progressions and things to be cautious of as necessary.  Ideally, everyone should be screened for proper movement before starting an exercise program.
