10 Days To A Steelworker’s Body: Redux

The Iron Guru, Vince Gironda
  1. Ring Push Up. It is probably a good idea to elevate the feet on a low box. Do not exceed your range of motion at the bottom and keep your arms near your sides and not flared out. At the top, or lockout, supinate your palms and pause. 12 reps.

  • Sleep 8–9 hours if you can. Nap if you need to.
  • Drink water, but don’t focus on some mythical amount.
  • Caffeine from coffee can help during the short term for energy.
  • Vary protein types from Chilean Sea Bass to Butt Steak to Pork Loin
  • Use lots of variety in the salad. If you get gas, try some probiotics or just eat some sauerkraut.
  • Move back to real food as soon as the event happens. Don’t go nuts though. No reason to binge like a Fasting fanatic. Carbohydrates will be welcome after 10 days.
  • The liquid meals should have ample protein. 50 grams for the Met Rx times 2 cans is 100 grams. Add in a 12 oz sirloin in the evening and that is around 200 grams of protein.
