Finally decided to take the plunge… and purchased the V-Diet supplies! See, it’s like this. It’s always been about the bigger and stronger for me. Started lifting as a scrawny teenager to make the highschool football team. It worked! Also seemed to improve my “date-ability”, so I was hooked! Now I am known as the Big Guy.
I’ve even collected nicknames like Hoss, Beast, Meat and my personal favourite, I was described as being all BuffnStuff. A friend recently told that if I could drop some of the Stuff and keep all the Buff, I’d be a Machine… Well, I liked the sound of that!
It’s been said that success is the meeting of oppotunity and preparation. Ski-season, which always involves a shift towards conditioning rather than power, is about 6-8 weeks away. Looks like the stars have aligned just about right.
Seems to me there are three sides to the testosterone lifestyle: training, nutrition and recovery. I once wore an infantry uniform and I’ve competed at the provincial level in powerlifting, so I’m no stranger to hard, heavy training. And I’ve even managed to get my eating habits under control, sort of.
Taking some advice I found hereabouts, I’ve learned to cook. Which means I don’t eat out or worse eat take-out nearly as often as I once did. I’m striving to crush these old habits. Recovery… I’m working at it. I have a real problem with taking a day off… or even sitting still!
Normally not much into forum posting, but I found many of the stories I’ve read here to be inspiring. I’ll endeavour to be just as inspiring. So, the supps are on order, the workouts are printed out and stowed in the gymbag… This gladiator has stepped into the arena with sand in his guts and a fire in his eyes. This is gonna be a helluva good fight!
All there is left to do is wait for my supplies and get to work!
I hate waiting…
