Thread starter charlotteyochem Start date Mar 15, Has anyone read Mackie Shilstone's new boo, Lean and Hard? Has anyone had any experience with Mackie's programs? He is a trainer in New Orleans who has trained a number of pro boxers and taken them to the next level and, more recently, started a couple of different training programs for us regular folks. Curious to know if anyone has any experiences here. I would think that the basic principles would be the same from book to book though maybe with a different focus.
The FBB book has meal plans that are basically low fat-high protein. It also advocates alternating circuit workouts with interval workouts for fat loss. I also throw in one full body workout a week. I am seeing some results I'm also seeing a lot more definition in my arms, chest, and shoulders.
I checked it out from the library and just photo copied the parts that I would need to refer to again. Have you checked your local library to see if they have "Lean and Hard"?
Tracey "Do or do not. There is no try. Tracey: Interesting. It works!! I actually met in New Orleans with Mackie's nutritionist and worked with his trainer for the first few days, then took the training manual home to Texas to complete the rest of the 6 weeks. The concept is a little different than the FBB - this one is designed to increase lean muscle mass so your composition is less body fat but more lean muscle. So, it uses high intensity interval training and weight training.
But not circuits. And the high intensity intervals are nothing like what we are used to with Cathe. They mostly are a combination of running drills where you MUST recover to a certain heart rate before you tackle the next one.
The first week seems very easy, but I have been promised that the intensity will increase each week and that it will get quite tough. The nutritionist tweaked what I thought already was a really good diet to include more protein and a few other changes. Mackie highly recommends supplements, which I never really have thought much about before.

Lean and Hard
By MacKie Shilstone. In , I was contacted by a man named Don Hubbard to develop a nutrition and exercise program for him and his wife, Rose. He was so impressed with the results that he asked me to take on a very special client. Hubbard was one of the principal investors in Michael Spinks, who had won the Olympic gold medal as a middleweight boxer in Spinks was considered the best light heavyweight boxer in the world and owned two out of three belts in his division. This was a great opportunity for me. In , I was volunteering as a strength and conditioning coach at Tulane University.
