    Good morning gentlemen. Well this weekend I managed to fletch a few arrows, got in a couple one-mile walks with the family and did Rinda's workout. That "little" workout is a monster and I am still sore. Love it! Here's some photos below of me and my workout buddies.

    Just got back from the gym after Monday & Tuesday workouts. Ankle sore bit that's to be expected. Did all my stretching, spent 15 mins on the stairclimber and finished with 30 mins on the excercycle. Plan on everyday this week.

    Nice work! Stay at it. It will all be worth it when that big buck or bull steps out!

    Spent the rest of the day repairing my irrigation system. Some new valves and pipe, rewire the pump and started running water in the pond, the fish will love it. Stock run started today for the rest of the week, then regular water on the 28th. Should be a good year, lots of moisture in the ground too, hope to get 4 cuts of hay.

    Oh yeah....I'm pooped! Back to the gym in the am.

    All right guys, here we go. I am not going to make excuses as to how I got to the physical level I am at, as I know where I went wrong over the last 13 years. I am going to explain a little bit about who I am, where I am at physically and what I plan to do to get back into hunting shape. Note I said hunting shape. I am not looking to run marathons, bench press 400 pounds or do long treks with a 100-pound pack. No doubt there are guys out there that can do that and I applaud their efforts. For me, it’s about getting more enjoyment from what I love most and second to family, it’s western big game hunting.

    In a former life, I was a dedicated baseball player with Big10 aspirations that nearly came to pass until I had my left shoulder completely reconstructed my senior year of high school. The recruiters vanished as quickly as they came and I was headed into college with or without a scholarship. That said I was also in my peak physical prime. Competitive weight lifting, running five-minute miles for seven miles, benching 400 pounds and having a 4.5 second forty at 6’1”, 265 pounds was my baseline – oh to be 19 again. The reason I am sharing this with you is because it serves as my fuel. I want to get as close to that again as I can at age 31. I’ll admit, knowing where I was and where I am at now, is depressing but find what fuels you and use it!

    Fast-forward 13 years of a sedentary “eastern” lifestyle where my farthest walk was to my treestand 100 yards from the truck, getting married, having two kids that require all my free time, holding a desk job for the last eight years and it’s easy to see why my numbers are the way they are now. Pile onto to that severe shin splints from years of running and a stress fractured lower back from an old injury – well you get the picture.

    I have a feeling there are a lot of guys out there like me, so if you’re in my camp, take this opportunity to get into hunting shape with me. As hunters we already share a common bond so let’s encourage and push each other to accomplish our fitness/hunting goals. Find the drive, no excuses – just results.

    After this mornings weigh-in with Rinda Eastman (Guy’s wife who is also a professional trainer) here’s my current baseline:

    Age: 31
    Height: 6’1”
    Weight: 303 lbs.
    Body Fat %: 38.4
    Body water %: 45.7
    Muscle mass: 177.8 lbs.
    Basal Metabolic Rate (rate of energy expended at rest): 2650 calories
    Bone mass: 9.2 lbs.
    Visceral fat (read that as most detrimental fat): 19

    I’ll admit, her process is new to me but I am going to break down some of the key areas I am going to focus on during the challenge.

    As would be guessed, weight is the first thing though surprisingly not the most important. During this challenge I am going to try and cut as much weight as possible and I have a feeling that will be a byproduct of working out and diet change but my starting goal is to drop 33 pounds, taking me to 270 pounds.

    Second is body fat percentage. This is the percent of your total make-up that’s fat. For my age range, the upper end of the healthy range is 20%. I don’t want to set unrealistic goals so that’s where I am going to set my goal; drop my percent body fat by at least 18.4%.

    Third is body water percent, which is the water content of your body. I am sitting at 45.7% and the healthy range for men is 50-65%. My goal here is to hydrate more often and get to 50% or more (there’s a word you don’t read often in a fitness challenge).

    Fourth is visceral fat. This is the fat that exists in your abdomen, surrounds your internal organs and is the most detrimental to your health. High-blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes are some of the diseases that have been linked to excess amounts of visceral fat. The healthy range for this type of fat is 1-12 and excess levels are considered 13-59, I am at 19. My goal here is to drop my visceral fat rating 7 points to at least 12.

    Now for the current workout plan and diet challenge. It’s nothing crazy but will serve you well in the long run.

    Workout – three times a week minimum for the first two weeks:

    Push-ups (3 sets of 15-20 reps)
    Squats (3 sets of 10 reps)
    Back Extension/Supermans (3 sets of 15 reps)
    Lunges (3 sets of 10 reps per leg)
    Planks (10-30 sec.)
    Side Planks (10-30 sec.)
    Crunches (50 reps)
    Bicycle Crunches (50 reps)
    Single-leg Toe Touch (20 reps each leg)
    Hip Rotations (3 sets of 10 reps each side. Foot flexed, knee at 90°)

    You may have to search for these exercises on the Internet for proper form and execution – I know I did. YouTube is a good place to start.

    Diet Challenge:

    Don’t eat any foods with processed sugar or high-fructose corn syrup.

    Sorry but Easter may lose its luster this year.

    With that said, I will post as frequently as I can between getting the magazines out to you guys and other obligations. Now, let’s get to work!
    This really resonates with me. I'm 31, former all American div II college swimmer, competition weight right around 168-172 lbs and 6'1" (body fat ~ 6-8%). Stopped competing 8 yrs ago and basically have added 10-12lbs/yr since going to medical school/residency. Lots of sitting around and free food everywhere. Two kids and working 80+ hour weeks while being so out of shape has kept me from making any headway. This winter I have climbed to 260lbs after plateauing around 238 for almost a year. It was sobering just the other day when my wife had to go buy me new pants for a conference I'm at right now. She had to go back TWICE to exchange them for a bigger size. That was sobering, WOW.

    I just started putting in for points out west this year and am trying to use that as motivation to get back in shape. Right now I'd be a waste of a tag. A decade ago it was noting for me to go for a 10-12mi run after swimming 7-8 miles that day. Now, I couldn't run a half mile let alone get up a mountain.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one in this boat and hopefully we can motivate each other to get back into shape. I'm going to start out with some upper body free weight routines, lunges, dumbbell squats all with the goal of getting back in the pool to hopefully start putting miles in there to burn the fat off. Water leg workouts are a great way to work all the muscle groups from hip to foot without killing your joints.

    Welcome to the challenge John! I feel your pain. I used to wear waist size 36 pants and now I am at a 42. It's amazing how things catch up to you if you let them. I was the same way thinking, "Aw, I don't look or feel that bad." and 10 years down the road, I struggle to get through the workout routine from Rinda in my post. I am very surprised that I could pack my buddies cow elk off the mountain this past January with no ill effect. My pack weighed 105 pounds and the hike was close to two miles but it was steep down hill most of the way. That has it's own challenge but I think if there were an incline in there somewhere, I would have had to make two trips for sure.

    Hunting is always a great motivator. When I get to the bottom of a third set, I start thinking about my favorite backcountry basin back home in Montana and how if I don't get this training done, I might never see it again – that's a thought I can't handle.

    Start slow, give Rinda's workout a try, I promise you'll feel it if done properly.
