M4 Training Day:
Final Countdown Video

Here is a 2-minute vid that is quite literally 490 days in the making (contains time lapse footage of M1, M2, M3 & M4!).

Now only ten days out from the most brutal training session of my life with the Super Shredder himself, Tom Venuto!


ECSS 2008:
Final Countdown Video!

This break with regular Shredder Sunday programming is for a very good reason. The New York Four are laying it all on the line with the broadcast of this video!

That's right, Four Certified Shredders (a.k.a. The New York Four), Suzette, Joni, Debbie and Lilla have upped the stakes in real-time accountability in a massive way.

Together we have embarked on a 30-Day full-blooded physique transformation journey (now T-Minus 15 Days!) which will culminate in the Inaugural East Coast Shredder Summit, (a.k.a ECSS 2008) on March 24, 2008.

So without further adieu, here is the video that the ShredderSphere is all talking about!


Alive: The Shredder Council Tribute Video

As I am once again past my sleep deadline today will be a very quick post.

Even though today was a rest day from training I have "worked" about 8 hours today putting the final touches on a very important project....The Shredder Council Tribute video!

NHK TV Japan Profile On My Weight Loss Journey

Wow! What a job this turned out to be!

A full 7 days after the NHK Japanese TV Network, aired a 5-minute profile on my weight loss journey that was broadcast to 5,000,000 people on NHK Channel 2 on October 14, 2007 I now finally have it ready for online viewing.

Ok, enough with the build-up, here is the video below...

N.B. The Copyright of this TV Clip belongs to NHK TV.

Would you believe that segment was edited down from 4 hours filming! Also, even though the hosts are laughing a little in the studio, it's in good spirits!

Burn The Fat, Feed The Mind Advance Preview:
Adam Waters Interviews Tom Venuto - Live & Uncensored!

This video is an "advance preview" of Burn The Fat, Feed The Mind, a 47 minute interview in MP3 format between me and the Super Shredder, Tom Venuto discussing key components of rapid-fire physique transformation.

In this preview Tom and I discuss why counting portion sizes only (and not calories) is detrimental to your fat burning potential in the early stages of your physique transformation.


180 Days In 18 Seconds - Time Lapse Weight Loss

Daily pictures from September 24, 2007 to March 24, 2007 (180 Days!)

The "time-lapse" portion of this video was recently broadcast to 5,000,000 million to Japan on NHK TV before it was uploaded onto this blog!

N.B.People who have read my special report, My Biggest Secret at will be familiar with the "earlier" pictures and blog.


M2 Judgement Day - The Six-Pack Verdict

94 Responses from 22 Countries over 12 hours to my public vote on my blog as to whether my midsection qualified as a six-pack. At stake is my $1500 pre-paid "redemption trip" to Phuket. The following takes place on March 24, 2007. Events occur in real-time.

*Warning: This video is very intense!


136 Days In 12 Seconds - Time Lapse Body Transformation

Exactly as the title says. I took a picture every day for 136 days between Nov 8, 2006 and March 24, 2007 and then put them back to back in a high speed montage. Each 24 hour period is represented by a picture of 0.3 seconds in length.

Buckle your seat belt!


84 Days In 48 Seconds: Time Lapse Body Transformation

A picture a day for 84 days (except for a few rest days). I was inspired by the "guy takes picture of himself every day for 6 years video." I thought...why not apply that concept to my whole body rather than just my face. This video is the result.

The time period is between Nov 8, 2006 and Jan 31, 2007 across 3 countries, Japan, Australia and Hong Kong. My goal for this mission (No.1) was to eat a choclate birthday cake while holding a six-pack of abs (NOT beer!) for my 33rd birthday on February 1, 2007.

This video is also a tribute to my mentors: Tom Venuto, Nick Nilsson, David Grisaffi, John Reese, Gary Halbert and Michael Prichard. Without these guys I would still be stumbling around like I had for the previous 6 years of failed attempts to get in shape.

How cool is this? I can't wait!

Also, in this vid I reveal details of my NYC Stealth Mission, I got some good news today regarding my flight schedule. I will now stay in New York longer so I can do a 10-day mini-shred leading up to April 1,2008 (a very special day as it will be 8 years to the day since Day 1 of Body For Life!).


Day 492: Last Day On The Job

Day 456: M2 Deja'vu - One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today on Feb 7, 2007 was the start of my 46-Day Mission 2 Six-Pack Abs Challenge (and public vote!). Now exactly one year later I am once again on a shredded six pack quest for my Day 500 training session with Tom Venuto and my Fellow Shredders in New York City!

The pressure is on! I'll be shredding like a madman for the next 44 days all the while imagining Tom Venuto standing over me asking, "Come on man, you got at least 2 more reps in ya!"

In this vid I also discuss the benefits of real-time accountability by logging my daily schedule publicly, along with taking daily pics.


Day 450: Feb/1/08 - My 34th Birthday, Thank You Shredders

Thank you my fellow Shredders for making my 34th birthday the best one yet! I'm totally blown away by your kindness and generosity. May we all shred on for many more years to come!

I'd also like to say thank you to my family and the Master Shredder himself, Tom Venuto for making this day one I'll never forget!


Day 425: Why Eating 100% Clean Can Backfire On You

Discussing why I'll be shredding twice daily for 8 days in each 12-Day training cycle over the next 75 days.

I also reveal why eating totally "clean" for an extended period of time (eg 24 days straight as I did on "Mission 1") can backfire on you, as it has done to me.

My "dark side" of 100% clean eating experience (for an extended period of time) may help you avoid going into "berserks mode" when you finish your current shred mission.
