Downsizing

Downsizing

If youíre just starting out in bodybuilding, chances are your primary focus is on gaining the greatest amount of muscle mass, hence muscular bodyweight, as you possibly can. Thatís certainly where my head was for many years. I was able to grow from a 95-pound high school freshman (itís true: I didnít even qualify as a 98-pound weakling) to my highest weight so faró240óalmost 18 years later at 5í8Ē.

Q: Iíve been reading your columns in IRON MAN since it started, and I love your honesty and straightforward approach. Iím on a quest for a better body and have lost 170 pounds in three years. Iím new to the iron game, and thereís so much information out there for us newbies that it can become quite confusing. I normally donít like to bother people; Iím usually a figure-it-out-myself guy. In this case, however, Iím turning to you. What training split would you recommend for a newer lifter? I have no medical issues other than being 270 pounds at 28 percent bodyfat, but I have my nutrition in order, I believe.

The science of sports nutrition is an evolving discipline, with new information frequently superseding previously accepted scientific fact. While nutrition topics are discussed at medical conferences around the world, until a few years ago sports nutrition wasnít a major agenda item. To correct that notable gap, a group of scientists and teachers, all of whom shared an intense interest in the exchange and presentation of the most up-to-date research concerning sports nutrition, formed the International Society of Sports Nutrition.

You canít really count on a whole lot of things in this world. As much as we would love for everything to go according to our plans and wishes, stuff happens. Companies downsize or go out of business. Relationships and friendships end. People you depend on let you down. Sometimes people you love die. Thereís only one thing you can rely on being there for you whenever you need it, and thatís the iron.
