Let The Pain Begin

Posted on: 4 Comments

cap007 Let The Pain Begin

After my first two days back on routine, I realize that getting the competitive physique back is not going to be a pain free experience. I kept it fairly light and easy on my first couple of days back. I drank piles of water and ate my meals, but the muscles still scream with the pain of lactic acid build up.  Who would have thought that becoming a character called Tuff isn’t going to be easy? (grin)

This week is only going to involve four days of training, so I can hit each body part moderately, one time through the week, and not get in so much pain I can’t move.  That’s the great thing about the first week or two of training when you haven’t been training for a few months or longer, it won’t take much to see your body reacting to the stimulus. At least that is what I tell myself every time I move   too fast and wince right now, ‘Ouch!… Oh yeah. That’s a good thing.’

For now, I get to enjoy a day out from the gym and it helps all of us to know that that muscle soreness dies off in a big way after the first couple of weeks.

Since I got to fully focus on some development stuff for the movie TUFF today, I went and gathered together film footage for some new demo reel material and am met with my production team to discuss how we might be doing a ‘The Making Of TUFF’ documentary. I think they may just want bloopers and outtakes of me getting beaten up as I try to figure out some of the stunt stuff.

Remember to post a note, if you decide to get rolling on training with me to get in shape for this movie. I do want to know about how it’s going for you. Remember that I you don’t have to get the big Naturally Massive or The Fat Burn Truth programs. You can grab the free Hibernation Training or start on something of your own. Just share the process.

Tomorrow I am back to the gym for a little shoulder and triceps shock treatment. I’ll catch you in the aftermath.

Best,

Sebastian

The movie TUFF is currently in early development.

We’ll the first workout got underway for the purpose of establishing the look of the character in the movie Tuff. I kept it light and easy. In fact, I think I got in and out of the gym in about 25 minutes.

The idea was just to get a little blood flowing into the muscle, because even moderate exercise is going to result in some rapid changes in the body this first week. Lots of fluid will begin flowing to the muscles and lots of lactic acid (also known as pain). I am going ahead with the Naturally Massive methods to make my transformation, but some are using The Fat Burn Truth program to make their transformation happen.

Anyone doing this with me (for fat loss or muscle gain) should consider your first week a bit of a warm up. Don’t go too nuts or you could end up not being able to train for a few extra days, due to excessive muscle soreness. Oh… one more thing. Drink lots of water. Your body will be looking for it now that it will be using a bunch of muscle tissue that its not used to using. Believe me it will help.

As for connecting this to the movie development effort, I am in the process of talking with some writers for script rewrites of the current draft of the film, as the general concept is solid but needs to go through the usual rewrite process. For now, this post contains a preliminary promotional poster for the movie TUFF.  Also, I am sharing with you the general plot synopsis.

Best, Sebastian

PS – Feel free to share with us your personal character transformation goals…
