Train to Gain?
Power, that is.
I just received an email about Matt Fitzgerald’s book, and I must say that I’m a believer.
I actually have the complete book, Racing Weight, and am working my way through it. I’m taking Matt’s advice a bit farther, though, because I am eliminating all meat and all dairy products from my eating plan, in accordance with the recommendations in Colin Campbell’s book, The China Study.
As of 1/5/2012, I am 5’ 10” tall, weight 147.4 pounds, and I am 20.4% fat, with a BMI index of 21.2. It’s somehow unbelievable that at 147 pounds I have at least 10 pounds of excess fat on me. I guess it just goes to show how little food we actually need to perform at our peak.
As I said in an earlier post, my goal is 15% body fat in time for California state track championships in June. And, hopefully, a lot more muscle and endurance.
