Ok so I've got some things that I've been needing to do for a while now. I was planning on documenting it just to show some friends and to see how much I accomplish but just now thought hey maybe I could turn this into a product.
So what I would be doing is getting my fatass back in shape. I'm really not that fat its just I've always been extremely slender and in fantastic shape until last summer then I kept getting sick off and on for a couple months and my body just went to crap and kind of continued that way for pretty much 8-9 months the end of this upcoming September would make it roughly a year.
Now how I think this would be different than most of the garbage in the health and fitness industry is you would see me go from being an out of shape pretty much inactive guy into a fit, energetic and hopefully good looking former self.
I'd show the whole process starting from day 1 until whenever I decide I'd like to stop. I could even break it up into sections like the first 6 weeks and so on. I'd record my weekly chest, waist, arm, forearm, calf, quad and naked body weight. I'd do this on the same day each week at the same time of day to try and rule out all variables. I'd also record my workout schedule including exercise times, distances, reps and or weights respectively. I'd also record everything I eat and drink each day including any times I cheat and deviate from my diet.
Anyways the goal would be to show that a normal guy with a little motivation and research can improve themselves. That and I'd also setup a basic cookie cutter diet and workout plan for somebody who has been pretty sedentary for quite some time.
Oh and just in case you are wondering my qualifications would be Cross Country runner, son of an extremely advid runner, and friend to a host of extremely talented atheletes so I've got pretty much all the knowledge I need plus I always keep an eye out for the newest professional research none of that Men's Health abs articles BS. Oh and just in case you didn't know every health magazine that you have to pay for is BS.
Give me your comments and opinions about my idea. Also I was considering keeping a video journal as opposed to a written journal plus this would help show how I do my exercises and how I cook and eat.
