Stealth's V-Diet -- 6/29/09


#1

The Goal: Single digit bodyfat…I’ve flirted with it in the past few years when I dieted down…but I’ve just never been able to reach that “Wow!” level of leanness. Another motivating factor?..pure vanity, lol…I’d like to be in peak form on the beach when I go on vacation in August.

Background: I’ve been training since I was a senior in high school (1999). I was an athlete, so that was basically how I first ended up in a weight room…and from there, I was hooked.

Lifting became my favorite pastime…I loved the discipline, the routine, the power of body, and the power of mind that I gained from it. The past 10 years have been an adventure…for a great deal of that time, I went about training and nutrition the “wrong” way…like alot of other meatheads, I latched on to the latest and greatest fad/workout/supplement, thought what worked for Arnold/Ronnie/Cutler would work for ME, thought training 6-7 days a week (arms & chest being about 3-4 of those days lol) would get me big and ripped, and that nutrition was only a SMALL part of being in shape. It was only until recently (2-3 yrs), that I really started getting “serious”…really being a student of the game…getting my diet and training in line. Now, I’m a little older…a little wiser…and looking to take things to another level.

THE PLAN:

You’re going to look sick after this program

DAY 1

Nutrition:
Meal 1- 7:00AM
Meal 2- 10:48AM
Meal 3- (Post-workout recovery) 12:50PM
Meal 4- 2:50PM
Meal 5- 5:15PM
Meal 6- 9:45PM
*Morning was a breeze…hunger was worst in the afternoon…both between my recovery drink and snack and between the snack and dinner.

Training: Overall decent workout…I had to do a couple “warm up” sets of each exercise to get the prescribed 4-5 RM weight that the advanced program calls for. I anticipate this to be the norm for the first few workouts.
Bent over BB row - Underhand grip:
5x155
5x155
5x155
5x155

Overhead Squat:
6x95
6x95
6x95
6x95
*Never did these before, and it showed. I had trouble getting my form right…struggled to get my balance. I felt like I had more in the tank as far as loading…but form was shit…so Ill keep practicing before I add too much weight.

Dip:(w/DB attached to weight belt)
5x75
5x75
5x75
4x75
3x75

Ab wheel rollout:(from standing postion - from knees was too easy for 4-5 RM)

this^^^

you’ve already got a good, strong base to work off of, this V-Diet will shred you up nicely.

i’m starting mine 7/1, I ordered 1/2 the supp package (due to $$) last week and the other half this evening.

anyway, keep us posted on the progress and do work!

DAY 2

Nutrition:

Meal 1: 6:55AM
Meal 2: 11:35AM
Meal 3: 2:40PM
Meal 4: 5:20PM
Meal 5: 9:45PM

Really pushed it between breakfast and lunch today (4 1/2hrs), hunger was high but not unbearable though.

Training:
OFF

NEPA:

Today was a very NEPA friendly day. Hot out, but not too much…a little breeze here and there…and lots of beautiful sunshine.

There is a walking trail around a lake right beside my office park…during the day when things are slow, I like to do a few laps. I did 25 minutes at 3:00PM.

Later on, after my dinner shake, I walked about 30 minutes through the neighborhood (6:30-7PM). I find that if I do my activity not so long after my shakes (30min-1hr), I have a bit more stamina/energy than if I were to try and do it 3-4 hours after a shake.

When I got back from my walk my son and his cousin begged me to play a game or two of “hide and seek tagball”, so I obliged. The rules of hide and seek tagball are simple…same as regular hide and seek except whoever is “it” is armed with a ball and in order to tag someone, they must throw the ball and hit them with it before they reach the base/safe zone…(btw…no face or nut shots…this is grounds for disqualification…lol). Our match lasted about 20 minutes…fun times.

So…A+++ for NEPA today.

I’m really interested to see how you do here.

Did you check your body fat? 10-12% probably?

I didn’t and I should have. Is it too late to do it (day 2-3)? Reason I ask is because I have one of those Accumeasure single site (illiac crest) calipers…but I don’t know how accurate it would be.

Other than that, I don’t know any other ways I could get measured/pinched accurately. I don’t know any personal trainers and I dont belong to a commercial gym where I could get access to bodyfat testing. Thoughts? Or will the Accumeasure suffice?


#15

NOTE:

Heaven is 2 tbsps of natural peanut butter at your bedtime meal when you’re on the V-Diet.

It is the highlight of my day.

Not that I didn’t have a love affair with it before the diet…but now…

…its orgasmic…


#16

Sounds like you’re chugging along nicely Stealth. I remember when I did the V-Diet last year…I looked forward to that peanut butter at the end of the day as well. Yikes…i’m starting tomorrow! :S

if you’re near any major college campuses most of them have this thing called the bodpod. I know the 2 universities in my town both have one and they will test you in it. One charges $15 the other charges $20. Not bad considering, not sure on the accuracy of them though
