Ok everyone, I know this is controversial but I am going to give this a try for exactly one month the way it is "supposed" to be done as laid out in the book 4 hour body. If we don't get incredible results I will switch to starting strength which has worked for me to some degree in the past. Let me assure everyone that I think Occam's Protocol is probably mostly BS but what is one month to try it out and see what happens? Here is my plan:
Step 1: Establish a baseline. Get body composition tested with a 9 sight caliper test. That way we have a starting point.
Step 2: Take and post pics of myself and the test results on the same day. This will happen the day before I actually start the workout and eating involved in the experiment (around Wednesday of next week).
Step 3: Do the workouts and eat like Rx'd in the book.
Step 4: Post body comp and pics weekly. Body comp is taken by the same person every time.
Step 5: Post workout, food, and supplement logs daily as lifestyle permits.
I know lot's of you think this is a waste of time but I haven't seen much online in the way of a detailed and correctly executed Occam's Protocol experiment. Plus, it's just a month right? If I don't get great results, and by great I mean adding close to 20lb's of lean mass, then we can end the debate about the author being totally full of ****E.
This is my first try at doing something like this and also my first attempt to keep a log on BB.com so please be positive and helpful with your criticism. I'm not trying to start another debate or say that Timothy Ferris is right or wrong, I just want to find out if there is any truth to his claims about rapid muscle gain.
This experiment is going to require a lot of time and money on my part so please reserve judgement until we get the final results.
