Swole in Two Months

Monday, June 8th, 2009

If you are someone who trains for a month then takes a week off because life gets busy, you are just like me.

If you are someone who normally trains 4 days a week and then can only get in the gym once in a 9 day stretch because life gets busy, you are just like me.

And like you, I put together than occasional plan to commit for a solid 3 months, eat right, train 4-5 times a week, and make some real progress.

We are not lazy, we just get busy or have to deal with family situations. Right?

Excuses, excuses…

Lazy Man
Lazy Man – This is not me and it better not be you!
