This journal will document my progress from today (01/18/05) until February 28 (02/28/05). So about a month and a half. The aim is to get bodyfat level down to increase vascularity and abdominals visibility.

I am using the REWP (C) method which I have created myself. REWP is an attempt to mimic the natural processes of nature in which you don't work at set times, for a given amount of time. Similarly in nature we don't eat the same foods day in day out, nor are the same amounts of foods accessible.

So in an attempt to mimic natural processes REWP will be applied.

REWP = Randomized Eating and Workout Plan (C).

On any given day I may complete a variety of given activities ranging from light walking to high intensity swimming, to powerlifting. Each day what I eat will be completely randomised. In nature sometimes an animal will expend more energy attaining an item of food than the food gives back. This workout process aims to mimic not only that, but also the times when the animal does little work for a big reward.

Extreme examples could include a day involving only light walking for exercise but might include 5 or 6 high calorie meals. At the reverse end of the spectrum; One day I might complete 600m of High Intensity freestyle swimming followed immediately by a powerlifting workout. That whole day I might only eat a before workout meal (breakfast) a post workout meal (lunch) and before bed meal (dinner).

The body will be in an overall caloric deficit for the period. Wether bf% will drop is another question as the REWP method is new. We do not know what to expect.

Here's hoping I see some good gains.

Currently I weigh 176lbs @ 17% bodyfat.

I don't do calorie counting but I definitely feel like im in a caloric deficit. I've already lost 2.5lbs since about 4 days before i started this journal. Arm definition is getting high but abs still not even close. I worked out today with this chick who works at the gym, an old friend so dont laugh at my use of the stepper. Man that is a weird machine. I kept sinking. :)

i have a couple questions regaurding REWP training. first, do you get a certain amount of protein(say 1g per pound of bodyweight so 180g a day) or do you allow your randomized diet to dictate how much protein you get? and second, do you roll dice or have some other type of program to randomize your meals, or do you rely on your own spontanuity(sp) to choose meals and workouts?

Hey Brickster! You've got an interesting plan of attack here mate, I'll be sure to keep tuned into this journal. I'd be interested in finding out how it all goes.

AdmiralDan: Mate, I basically just eat whatever I want when I want, but generally try and keep it healthy and in my mind it contains less energy than I burned during the day and I always eat a decent amount of protein. I guess you could call it instinctive eating. As for training, I look at what part of my body needs a lift and hit it, or just hit it all over like deadlifts combined wit copious amounts of cardio.

Chubrock: Thanks a lot man, I must point out they are sumo deadlifts. have you tried sumo? they might be easier for your bodytype, certainly works for me.

Tank23: Cool another Aussie, howsit goin mate. Thanks for the interest mate, I am trying to basically hook in as hard as I can and then do some more. I'm not sure how my bodys responding, im gonna check bf% in 2 weeks.
