Day 433: Great Idea Suzette!

G'day Shredders,

Suzette has a great idea for future editions of Shredder Sunday, Shredder Q&A!

Shredder Sunday Video Q&A!

If you have any questions on any aspect of shredding you can send them to me in a video format (.mov or .avi) and I put your movie file into the final cut, and answer your question to the best of my ability!

You can also send your question in text format if you don't have access to a video camera and I'll put up a transcript on that blog post. If you'd like to participate just send me your question/video file to my personal email (that you have) by Saturday 2:00 PM.

Shredder Articles?

Another idea I think may be cool is having a Shredder Article written by a member of the ShredderSphere on a separate blog post each Sunday. You will have the whole post to yourself for your article.

The kind of articles I'm looking for are "aha" moments you have experienced on your own real-time journey. We all have our own stories to tell and our own unique perspectives on "what it really takes" to make a physique/life transformation.

Your story and perspective may be just be the spark that inspires another person to take action and start living their dreams again! Your article could even be a "re-worked" blog post that you have already written when you were in a real reflective mood.

If this is something that interests you please let me know in today's comment section and we'll work out the finer details as we progress.

N.B. You will have a text link to your blog included in your article for maximum exposure (and real-time accountability!). I will also build a dedicated "Shredder Article Category" section on the right-hand nav bar so it will remain in permanent view at the top of this blog.

Day 22 of 84

Nutrition: My meal plan was spot on today. I have cut back on condiments now, I am using lemon juice for salads and salmon (instead of sauce).

Training: I got in a quality Muscle Rounds workout today and managed to stick to the 10 second rest period exactly as I used all machines today - makes it easier to rack and reload the weight.

M4 Shred:
Real-Time Accountability

Day 22 of 84

and theory of RTP Real-Time Accountability.



Feel free to use this plan as a template that you can follow. However, this plan is is based on my own personal experience over 3 physique transformation missions. In other words, what works for me may not work for you in the same way.

Success in this game requires research, individual design, real-world testing, monitoring results and making adjustments when necessary. This is your responsibility, no one else can do it for you. However, if you'd like to research further the exact programs I have used (over my first 3 Missions) and will use for M4 Shred you can do so at the links below.

2) Weight Training: Metabolic Surge: 36 Day Rapid Fat Loss System.

3) Six-Pack Training: Flatten Your Abs: 7-Level Training System.


Shredder Pact:

We will focus on the single daily actions that produce results.

We will "burn our bridges" and not look back.

We will never surrender.

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

I like both of those ideas, the Q&A and the Shredder Articles.

Now I must learn how to save video to download. I can only record on tape for some reason.

Tell me you don't the wear the pink in public. Oh but you are in Japan so I guess you can get away with it!!
I like the idea of writing an article.

Mike Groom said...

great ideas Adam! You continue to amaze me at the lengths you'll go to for this group.


Michael said...


You have given me so much that I want to give back, so count me in on the article idea.


Joni said...

I agree - both ideas are great and I'm up for any of it. Would love to see some more shredders videos too!

Suzette said...

the article idea will be great because there is so many here that write so well and are full of ideas! i was actually thinking of you interviewing one of us each week and we give you our answers either via email or a video response.

Lilla said...

Awesome ideas! Adam in the Hot Seat Q & A - Love it!

If you've read any shredder posts that look like "article" material, let us know. It'll give us an idea of what you're looking for.

Adam Waters said...

Thanks you Shredders! Looks like we have a green light for Shredder articles and Q&A. Also, Suzette's idea for Q&A with you is great too! We could even hook up by Skype and record the call!

Lilla, I'll definitely do that this weekend with the goal of having our first Shredder Article by next Sunday (Jan 27/08).

The pink has been permanently banished B! It was strictly for my own amusement in my house when I had about 5 visitors a day!
