MAKE A 6 MONTH PLAN

Dave Draper, Mr. Universe

The words that compose davedraper.com are written with a logic that comes only from experience, with a passion that comes only from love and an excitement that comes only from creativity.

The facts of how to train, how to eat, why, when — and when you don't want to — are presented to you clearly, as insight; not cold precepts that bind you like laws and classroom underscores.

There you'll find exactly what you need to get you going and keep you going with knowledge and understanding, spirit and zeal, purpose and ever growing clarity. Bodybuilding, weight training, nutrition, fitness and exercise; any one of them or all together, they comprise an engaging diversion, a healthy sport, a rewarding challenge, a robust lifestyle that lifts you up and keeps you up.

- - - - - - - - - - 

Attention all who seek muscle and might — "The Plan" is here; the friendly IronOnline Challenge put forth last week in our dd.com newsletter.

Two original, individual bodypart workouts (wo's) each week for the next six months will be presented by a ready, willing and able IOL participant. WO1 will be directed toward mass building while WO2 will be a fit and lean routine. The sequence of bodyparts has been decided by the poetic voice of IOL and is as follows:

OCTOBER - LEGS

NOVEMBER - CHEST

DECEMBER - BACK

JANUARY - SHOULDERS

FEBRUARY - ARMS

MARCH - ABS & GET RIPPED NUTRITION

 

Each workout will have a brief overview to give it substance and clarity. The rest is up to you. Print it out, file it, practice it, make it a regular routine or a "slump buster." Get huge, hop on the IronOnline discussion group and give us your input.

A large percentage of IOL regulars have committed to try at least one workout per week as a challenge within the structure of their established routine. For them curiosity, perpetuation of training interest, enthusiasm, knowledge, adventure, social sharing, victory over monotony, and the creation of a large training file are the incentives. They're really nice but greedy.

The workouts will be filed in the Irononline Archives at dd.com for posterity and a pleasing, muscular body.  

1 + 1 = 2

. . . . . . CONJECTURE . . . . . .

 

Should a man [or woman, of course] train hard and not eat right, he will slug along, his muscles will thicken, his strength will improve and he'll be better for it. Improvements, however, will not be inspiring nor will they be long lasting. Eventually, the careless diet will do him in.

If this same man [or woman, of course] should eat "right," he will grow more muscular with more separation and less fat. He will be stronger, more energetic and more enduring throughout his entire system. These improvements will occur sooner with less hardship, more joy, and last infinitely longer. He'll be, my guess is, happier, friendlier, sharper and more stable than the poor fellow of average nutritional responsibility.

Frightening. Watching CNN Health on the news yesterday, I learned that over 55% of all Americans are overweight and 20 % of this group are obese. Exercise and nutrition, the two major factors (duh) that control these percentages, were dismissed with a shrug and an embarrassed, nervous laugh by the five less-than-responsible adults interviewed. "No, I don't exercise or watch my diet, though I probably should (tiny tee hee hee). "

Would it not be true that considerably more are "over fat " if not overweight. . . and unconditioned? I do not judge or bash these folks... I'm sorry and appalled. I want to shout, "PEOPLE WAKE UP. PLEASE!"

Thank God we know the trouble and are applying the solution before it becomes a problem.

Ya'll, new and seasoned — Don't forget, d.d.com has a resource of 275 pages with a search engine [thanks, L] to help you locate some of the answers to some of the questions you stumble across regularly throughout the day.

In a few days check the site to view its new face lift. It's being reworked [more like molecular disassembly and atomic reconfiguration] by a frazzled, mumbling and cross-eyed stranger to improve search engine efficiency.

Today's Wednesday. Gotta feed Laree — she'll only eat raw meat these days — so the pages will be up by this Sunday.

Stay tuned, Bombardiers.
