MOD,
Who are you trying to kid here? You keep ripping me off at every turn.
Now, I have to write a new e-book since "Hollywood Body" is taken.

My new one, "The Jim Belushi Diet and Exercise Program for Total Body Fitness and Elite Performance: Deep Fried."

My next book...BBG...Body By Guinness.....wait....that may not sell very well...maybe in Ireland....

Anyways...I am also going to implement IF rules of engagement and stem away from the mainline eat every 3 hours of protein....the question I had for the IF experts...is if it is say supposed to happen every day or just on the off days of non weight training? What is the magic number too....15 hr fast?....say 10am-6pm eating? Would a single serving of Whey and water in the AM blunt any responses from the IF....or would it be neutral? (so paranoid of losing any muscle I spent getting over the winter since I am already lean by nature...)

Notice that the other Cheerleading participants are smart, they stand far enough away to not sustain injury when she topples. The kid underneath? Well, he's done for.

Hey Aimee, MOD,
when did you guys visit my home town? Those pics look like 20% of the population hence why I don't live there!

Mike,
You might want to think about adding some easy cycling as a recovery workout. I've found that comuting on my bike with focus on "sweat management" is a great way to flush the system and increase your overall pedaling effeiciency without adding much further training stress (You also get the added benefit of moral superiority). Form personal experience I have found that if you keep your efforts to about 60% MHR you wont have to worry too much about loosing muscle mass.

I don't know how to go that slow...lol. I'm more the anaerobic thrill seeker....can't do "cardio"....I keep it to a max of 30-40min, that way it's all glycogen and not muscular breakdown....that and no way am I biking down the street in Atlanta....I wont get 10 feet without being smashed by 3 cars with no insurance.....

I used to have the same problem with going slow. My coach told me I needed to work on my "emotional control". I think she had a good point.
I dont know what atlanta looks like but hill repeats are the way to go if you want to build some good cycling specific speed and strength. Find the steepest hill you can and giv'er. Repeat three to five times depending on the length of the hill.
Funny, a life time of cycling and thats the best advice I've got.

Its that time of the year again, in retrospect any changes you would make to the original template?

Looking to start this today, will hopefully add some mass to my lanky frame in time for summer.

Awesome original thread MOD, and anyone who achieved the hollywood bod summer 07 please feel free to contribute and share methods.

Chris
