Sunday August 8th 2010, Starting Stats
7.4% body Fat
Today is my flush day which is my “rest day” from strength training. I like to do an extended yoga practice on these days and really get my full body involved or work on my tightest area, which would be my hips. I am looking forward to Sunday’s measurements to see if the plan I created for myself is working. It is all in the numbers baby. I may need to tweak a few things but that is expected since I haven’t been on a true hypertrophy routine in some time. However, the last day or so I have noticed my chest and arms are filling out my t-shirts again…whooohoo!
*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.
Barefoot running (Vibram Fivefingers)
*I actually warmed up and felt great so I decided to some sprinting instead.
6 x 100, 20 seconds rest between each
4 x200, 30 seconds rest between each
2 x400, 45 seconds rest between each

Snack– Green Juice (Chard, cucumber, ginger, lemon, oranges), whole food bar and Cashews
Dinner– LARGE bowl of fruit again…I don’t normally consume a lot of fruit in the evenings but i felt like it today so I went with it . (banana, Mangoes, goji berries, dried coconut flakes, hemp seed, pumpkin seeds, soaked almonds)
Pre Bed– Shake (1 scoop Vega protein, ground flax seed, aloe vera juice)
Like I said above, I think things are headed in the right direction. I wasn’t bored of the bodybuilder style workouts that I did this week but it is obviously early so we’ll see how interested I am in a few weeks. Either way, this is what I have to do to reach my goal and the faster i can reach my goal the faster I can get back to more functional training. I will weigh in tomorrow and record the rest of my stats as well.
I just found out that one of the strength coaches I look up to will be at the CanFit pro conference this weekend here in Toronto. Once I finish my workout tomorrow I am going to pop over to the expo and see if I can’t score an interview with him. I hope to purchase a piece or two of equipment while I am there as well so there may be some videos added to these blogs shortly.
Just a reminder, I just started a Nathane Jackson facebook fan page that will host all of these daily training journals along with a great deal of the information Nathane Jackson Fitness Inc. puts out along with any writing, modeling, acting and entertainment news relating to moi.
