Four Hour Body | Long Term Data, Results and Tracking
Update: November 2012 (need to take more photos, still working with Occam’s weekly)
NOTE: Prior to personally implementing many of the protocols of the 4 Hour Body I already spent way to much time in the gym. I thought I had too. Usually my routine would take well over an hour. Performing various repetitions of the same meaningless exercises and getting absolutely no results. This is something I shared with most of my gym colleagues most of whom continue to thrust weights around for countless hours thinking this is what they must do to MAINTAIN what they already have. This thinking had me in the gym 3-4 X per week for an hour at a time. Without much in the way of gains mind you.
Switching to Occam’s Protocol for me was an act of faith. I did not personally believe that I could work out just 1x or 2x per week for 20 minutes and not specifically gain muscle, but keep the muscle definition I have and be able to continue lifting the weights that I had. My goal was never to be a body builder, but to have some muscle definition, feel great and be in good health.
So I cut my routine down from about 3 hours per week to 40 minutes per week and now about 20 minutes of gym time total per week.
