I just read the “How to build a T-Vixen” article in this week’s issue and man, did it convict me. My wife got in really good shape after doing the Body for Life challenge with me about 2 years ago. Her results in 12 weeks kicked my changes in the butt. Since then, she has backslid and I have improved rather significantly. Part of the reason for her backslide was her own choices, but I must also take a significant part of the blame. Diet manipulation, training manipulation, supplement manipulation - it’s enough to make us all go nuts, even the ones who keep up on all the research and anecdotal info.
Anyway, my point is that I realize that I have to make some changes to my training so that I can fit my wife back into this section of my life. For you husbands out there, I recommend reading the article especially if wife is not currently training. Especially for you guys on a cutting cycle right now. It’s an optimal time to get your wife involved with your training. I know that my wife cannot handle the thought of watching what she eats while I’m on a MAG-10 bulking cycle.
