Task 3 Commit !
Your mission, should you choose to accept it…
Hopefully by now you will have made a decision on how best to gain muscle.
Some of you may have identified that you need to do less exercise or change your current exercise regime which can be a bit of a head-wreck.
Why is this important?
Category 1 – Oestrogen is stored in body fat, especially fat around the middle, in both men and women. This excess oestrogen can cause failure to ovulate, short luteal phase, brown spotting before a period or miscarriage. For men it can affect sperm count, motility and morphology.
Category 2 – Certainly being a good weight is important for fertility however it is possible to be under fat, in fact dropping below 9 stone can cause a cessation of periods as Nature has no use for menstrual cycles if there is no possibility of a successful pregnancy.
What you actually need to do:
In your journal write down…..
- What exercise you will do
- How often you will do it per week
- What your target hip to waist ratio is by the end of the programme (11 weeks from now)
These are closed statements, actionable, measurable steps – no ifs, buts or maybes!
While you are getting an easy week this week I want you also to stay focused and committed
Please post your meal plan for the week in your journal, even if it exactly the meals from the plan I gave you, repetition is powerful.
- Daily breakfast with 15 grams protein
- 2 daily snacks with protein
