Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 2/10/12
Earlier this week my good friend, John Romaniello, released his opus to intermittent fasting (IF), Fat Loss Forever. For those who missed it, John was kind enough to stop by and answer a few questions regarding IF – what is it?, who is it for?, is there any science behind it?, will it make me grow a third nipple? – as well talk about the specifics behind the product itself.
In passing, too, I had mentioned how I experimented with IF a few years ago, but didn’t really realize it at the time. Yeah, I was smart like that.
Nevertheless, when John sent me an advance copy, I read it – in one sitting – and was thoroughly impressed. So impressed, in fact, that I am now on day #3 of my own intermittent fasting extravaganza.
Okay, extravaganza is a little bit of an indulgence. Really, all I’ve done is push my breakfast back a bit in the morning (essentially taking myself through a 12-16 hour fast), and then pwning my first meal after I’m done picking heavy things up and putting them down – which, is generally around 12PM
I’ve always had the tendency to crush a HUGE breakfast every morning, and often wondered whether or not that affected how I felt heading into my workout. I have to say, after a few days, I feel spectaculous!!!!
I can’t say for sure whether or not I’ll do it long-term, but at the very least, I wanted to try it out.
Fat Loss Forever – John Romaniello and Dan Go
Anyways, today (2/10) is your last chance to purchase Roman’s opus to intermittent fasting at the discounted rate of $50 OFF the regular price. He’s has gone out of his way to include a TON of sweet bonuses – including a training manual and supplement guidelines, to name few – but I’m going to sweeten the pot.
1. This kind of got lost in the shuffle earlier in the week, but for anyone who purchases FLF from this site, and emails their receipt to me (email@example.com), I’ll send you a TG written and Roman approved strength-based, 2-day-per-week workout that acts as an adjunct to the program.
2. In addition, I’ll also throw anyone who emails me their receipt into a raffle for a free DIGITAL copy of Muscle Imbalances Revealed – Upper Body. And, if you play your cards right, maybe a bologna sandwich. Winning!
This was an excellent post by Kevin detailing the intricate and complicated mechanisms behind FAI – how to recognize it, and more importantly, how to go about implementing training modifications.
While it’s generally accepted that FAI is more prevalent in the athletic population, it’s something that we’ve witnessed creep into other less common populations as well – including your typical gym rat population.
If you’re a fitness professional, I HIGHLY suggest you give it a read, and don’t ignore the other links in the article as well, as Kevin as a TON of information to share on this topic.
