The Lean Phase targets the person who hasn't worked out in a while. Getting back to the gym can be very intimidating, especially if you aren't in the best shape.
Pay Attention to Diet
Phase 1 concentrates on losing those unwanted pounds. I am paying close attention to the meal plan. For breakfast, I have eggs and bacon. Lunch and dinner include at least two helpings of protein and lots of healthy carbs. And yes, I am drinking at least eight glasses of water.
Limit Exercise time
I find it hard to believe that I am only supposed to workout for 30 minutes. In the old days, I found it nothing to spend at least 90 minutes for a full workout.
The goal of the old school training is to identify the weight that you can easily lift for 15 repetitions. Then pick up a weight that is lighter and only complete ten repetitions.
There are Only Four Exercises
Don't exert yourself. Use only these four exercises in Phase One, Lean Phase.
Remember that we are building muscle mass with the Old School New Body System. Results don't always show on the scale. The primary purpose of the Lean Phase is to lose weight, but results can show in your clothes fitting better and inches lost.
Keep track of your measurements and log how you are feeling. I am looking forward to having more energy and stamina.
