Keep Track Of Your Progress.


I am sure your pantry is full of great food, but are you really eating
exactly everything your body needs to get huge??

Busy work schedules tend to cause a large percentage of muscle hungry
bodybuilders to miss valuable mass building meals throughout the day.

Are you consuming foods you shouldn't?? We all have a good idea of
what we should eat, but sometimes it doesn't seem practical.

I once heard of a program where smokers kept a tally on how many
cigarettes they smoked in a 24-hour period. By keeping the tally,

they were able to exactly how many cigarettes they were smoking,
eliminating the guesswork.

At this point, the smoker could improve by smoking less than
the day before.

You need to do the same thing. Many of you may say that you
eat perfectly. So then, how much protein did you consume
last thursday??

You don't know right?? That is my point. We all know how important it is to eat
between 1-1/2 to 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight a day.

How many times a week are you consuming 2 grams per pound?? Are you
even hitting the 1 1/2 gram mark? How much would it improve your
physique if you were to consume closer towards the 2-gram side
instead of the 1 1/2 grams side?

Let me put it this way; would consuming 33% more of essential
building blocks your body needs, help your body build more muscle size?

Keep a log book so that you can write down everything you eat along
with your training sessions.Your daily log should be used to tweek
and fine tune your bodybuilding life style.

Copy down your diet and workout over the next three days and mail it
in care of me (Leon Cruz) for an honest review of your current plan
and tips that will drive you closer to your fitness & bodybuilding

Do not cheat yourself. If you decide to to eat those jelly donuts,
write it down. By logging everything you put in your mouth,
you're giving yourself the advantage to improve everyday.
This is why accountants make the best bodybuilders.

The training schedule is equally important to the diet schedule. Each
week, increase the weight you lift and the order you lift them in.
Constantly changing you routing will help you leap over those
plateaus, and continue to grow.

One of the greatest qualities to bodybuilding is that "there is no end".
There is always room for improvement. Just look at Frank Zanes picture at age
65. He looks incredible.

It si always possible to look better than the day before. Keep the mind
set, "Today i'm in the best shape of my life and tomorrow I will look
even better."

Until next time,

Keep hanging and banging.
