Hi Guys,

Quick question. I have been on the V-Diet for about a week now and have followed everything to a "T".

This weekend I have a company golf tournament that has been scheduled for a couple of months and cannot miss. I am playing on a "Non Workout" day, and we will have a golf cart for 18 holes (so not as much walking).

Will this be to much activity to count as my NEPA, or should I treat it as a "workout-day" and drink a Surge shake after my 18 holes?

Thanks a lot for your help!

I'm sure Chris will chime in here soon, but I would say don't count it as your NEPA unless you're walking and definitely no Surge afterward. Surge is intended for recovery post-workout and workouts on the V-Diet should be done at a high level of intensity as prescribed.

So, I would save the Surge for after your workouts and do your NEPA at a different time of the day if you're going to use the golf cart. The 18 holes will serve as bonus activity though, which is always a plus!

Good luck on your diet, and keep up the great work!

Jason summed it up pretty well. It's not really NEPA (though it doesn't hurt) and there's no need for Surge Recovery. That's only for demanding weight training.

You could kill 2 birds w/ one stone and just walk 18. You'd have to keep up the pace since everyone else is on carts, but you'd be the one reaping the benefits of the NEPA. The added weight of your bag would assist even more! These small changes/sacrifices can play a big part in the outcome of your overall success w/ a program.

The real danger with those golf outtings is all the beer that seems to get guzzled...usually in compensation for a bad round. (ask me how I know) :)
