After the email a couple days ago about the 52 year old who dropped 38 pounds in 2 months, a competition started. Several readers of this daily dispatch wrote in with similar stories. Here’s one I think you’ll dig:
I’m not sure if you’ll get this, but I think I can beat the story of this 52 year old. I’m 54. After many years of using free weights – which I’ve now completed stopped using – I’ve been using your Combat Conditioning program daily for
almost two years.
As someone who also does considerable reading on issues related to natural health and healing, I’ve recently been reading the two most recent books by Dr. Barry Sears – THE ANTI-INFLAMMATION ZONE, and TOXIC FAT. Being very impressed with this work, and rather gratified that the changes I’ve long made to my own diet were almost perfectly complimentary with his recommendations, I finally visited his website to learn more about his work and products. While there, I found a very convenient body fat calculator. Having long been curious about this, but having never known the procedure, I took the opportunity to assess myself. Result?
For men, healthy is 15%, ideal is 12%, average is 23%.
A Triathelete will read 8% body fat. My reading?
9% body fat.
I often tell friends and people I meet who express shock to learn my age, that I will be doing Combat Conditioning as my primary fitness program for the rest of my life; a life that I intend to be very long, vital and productive. I may add some yoga and/or Pilates elements as I go along to add a little physical spice and further variety to my workouts, but with these kind of results the core will remain Combat Conditioning.
With much gratitude and respect.
MJF: Hello Mark. Great email. Glad to hear about your results. I’m most inspired by the fact that you have the long-term vision. With YOU it is NOT just to get in shape. It’s to be healthy for LIFE. Good thinking. The average person is afraid of ill health, death, dying and so on. You’re not. You’re moving forward with a vision of greatness. Very smart. Very very smart. All the best to you.
