I'd really like to do try this in conjunction with the 12-wk workout. But here's my problem...

I start my day at the gym shortly before 4:00a, and I get up at 3:30a. So first of all, to spread my meals out as suggested on this plan would have me eating my last meal at around 2:30p. Also, I can't do the preworkout meal. Best I could do would be down some cottege cheese or a banana in the car on the way to gym.

For this diet to work, how strictly do I need to follow the schedule, and do you think I can realistically tweak to fit my schedule, or should I just try to make my own up based on the general principles found in this article?

I don't follow the diet...generally I try to eat around 2000-2200 calories a day and space my meals 2-3 hours apart. I avoid processed foods, anything that contains flour or sugar...I also have a shake or 2 a day. I have one strange work schedule so that works for me! All I need to work on now is my willpower!

How do you figure out how much weight so you go to failure in the suggested rep amount? Is it just trial and error or is there a more scientific way to figure this out? So far I can see that my shoulders are my weak points and in doing the dumbell chest press that my right side is much stronger than my left (my left side failed way before my right side) it was weird. I really like the workout though. I think that before I was doing way too much cardio! I like the new soreness I feel!

I'm starting it next week. I like to print the workouts onto index cards and take them to the gym to keep me on track. It just takes a while to make the adjustments to make it fit on the index card. I used the 12 week workout through the holidays. You could refer to my "OhJoy" post if you want to know how it went. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Failure is a tricky and somewhat daunting thing to attempt if you've never worked out like that before...especially with low reps. What I have learnt is that I often underestimate myself. I would rather fail before my 10 reps are done than be able to pump out the 10 with only some fatigue. By that last rep, I want to feel like my eyes are going to blow out of their sockets and my brains are dribbling out of my ears! You'll get the hang of it...and then you'll be addicted!

Hi!

I am planning to do the 13 weeks, but in the past I have been exercising first thing in the am (around 530 or 6am), so wonder how crucial it is to eat before the workout? I prefer going empty stomach, but also this is because Ihave read so much about the benefits of that.

Any suggestions?

thanks
akosia
