I pride myself on being a self proclaimed above-average writer. To continue to toot my own horn, I generally find that I am able to convey high level scientific concepts in a manner that is both informative and more importantly enjoyable all while still giving you the ability to directly apply whatever I said to your life in a matter of seconds without having to consult your local PhD. Whether my half-hearted poking fun at my girlfriend adds any value to my writing is still under considerable review, namely from both her and her parents but I digress as that is neither here nor there.
When I sat down to write this, it was my full intention to spare you any longwinded introduction and just give you the details. My plan was to quickly tell you how I personally think I’m a good writer and write reasonable interesting introductions that hook the reader in seconds to read the rest of my 4,000 word exposes on topics like getting shredded and looking better naked, which seemingly are one and the same. Then make a quick transition and tell you how this article is just going to be bare bones with full details on my experimental parameters sparing you any anecdotal introduction that you may give a courtesy laugh if you happened to be reading it in front of me.
Obviously, I’ve failed since I’m 241 words deep and have yet to mention a single word about guinea pigs and/or getting shredded.
Let’s not waste anymore time…
You Win, I win, Everyones Happy
This is a mutually beneficial partnership.
First, I help you get shredded. The scientific framework governing the plan is too sound not to work. Trust me, you will get leaner than you ever in a short time frame.
Second, you help give me more data like any good guinea pigs would. The issue isn’t the science, any Harvard physiology professor that likely doesn’t remember my name would concur that my science is damn good. However, science doesn’t directly translate to the real world when it comes to getting shredded. There are hiccups and kinks that need to be ironed out in order to make this plan as perfect as possible.
I’ve already run this program on a few people with outstanding results. Though my timeframe is shorter (2 weeks compared to 6), I am running the same program on myself in my attempt to have abs that cut granite.
But I need more data and that’s where you come in.
Because of the extreme nature of this program, I have some requirements that must be met for those interested.
15% bodyfat and under – If you’re not already this lean, then you don’t need a program of this nature. You need to master the basics and get lean first before you take the next step
Must be male – Male and female fat loss physiology is different. For perfection sake, I want to limit as many variables as possible. For now, males only
100% committed – What I’m going to ask you to do will be to take extreme measures in order to accomplish an extreme goal. If you’re not 100% committed to this with your entire being then don’t waste my time or yours because you won’t succeed
The ability to train 4-6 times per week, sometimes twice a day – Remember, extreme goals require extreme measures
Ability to cook and prepare meals – In order to get shredded, every last detail matters. Simple prescribing nutritional installments each week isn’t going to work unless you’re a genetic freak. Hitting specific macronutrients is paramount to achieving our goal. Controlling macros requires the ability to cook and prepare your own meals
Willing to suffer – Look this isn’t your local boy scout fat loss plan. Comfortable incremental fat loss isn’t the goal here. I want to push your body to adapt as fast as possible. Calories will be lower than comfortable with a high volume of movement. If you’re afraid of being uncomfortable, this plan isn’t for you
Ready to be elite – Like all things, being elite isn’t easy nor does everyone achieve it. In terms of body composition goals, being shredded is elite. If you have veins popping in your abdominals then you my friend are part of a select company. This program is only for people who have a burning desire to be elite
I think the vanity reasons for applying to this program are pretty obvious. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t want to be shredded and look unbelievable naked.
Vanity considerations aside, I’m after another subset of individuals. Individuals that want to push themselves to a new level, both physically and mentally.
Chad and I are going to make you uncomfortable. I can promise you that there will be times during your training sessions when you’re going to want to quit and instances when you’re sitting there craving nothing but delicious feel-good carbohydrates. Can you say no to both? I want individuals who are interested in the question of how far they can push themselves, to learn about the true ethos that governs their lives.
Everyone Isn’t Invited
This program is only open to a select few individuals. I don’t have a concrete number in my head but right now there’s no way we accept more than 15 with a more likely limit being 10 people. Individual guidance is paramount to helping you accomplish this program. Opening it up to 100 individuals doesn’t make this possible.
If you’re interested in getting shredded in six weeks and taking your body and mind to a new level, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Let’s Get Shredded.” We look forward to hearing from you.
