PL365 10 Week Transformation

I was originally picked to be a part of the 2012 Project Transformation hosted by Efficient Exercise .  Due to an inconsistent work schedule, I had to pass on the opportunity.  I was bummed.  I was really looking forward to getting back into “shape”.  When one door closes another one opens, of course I had to open the door.  I decided to do my own PL365 10 Week Transformation.  As with any body transformation project I began thinking about programming, diet, and how I wanted to look at the end of 10 weeks.  I had visions of being swole, jacked, ripped, buff, you get the idea.  So began the tedious task of programming to attain this “look”.  Coming up with a program can be difficult, if not down right intimidating.  I can tell you how to train for size or how to train for strength, but a 10 week program trying to incorporate several training methods to achieve my “goal”.  Sheesh.  While I was contemplating programming, I started to wonder do I really want to be ripped?  What did I really want to accomplish?  I want to be strong, able to play with my kids, get rid of my  back pain, be healthy, stop worrying about things I have no control over, be a better father and husband, and find a new job or career (long story).  Here is what I came up with:

  • Diet – Paleo, low to medium carbs (50-125) per day, very little sugar, small amounts of dairy.
  • Workouts
    • Monday – Strength Training Full Body
    • Tuesday – 2 Tabata sessions
    • Thursday – 20 Minute Interval Sprints
    • Friday – Hypertrophy Training Full Body
  • Daily 20 minute meditation
  • At least 6-7 hours sleep per night.
  • Career – I have a few irons in the fire.

This workout programming might be a little ambitious, possibly leading to over training.  I will keep an eye on this.  I thought about keeping a food log documenting everything I eat, but quickly decided against it.  I am far too busy to micro-manage this transformation.  I will post my weekly workouts and progress.  PL365 10 Week Transformation starts 4/9/12.
