Sunday August 15th 2010, Week 1
6.9% Body Fat
For next few weeks I will only post my weekly results as my workouts will be roughly the same. I will journal anything as well as provide photos and/or video if something worth noting occurs. In the mean time I am just going to put my nose to the grindstone and make these boring bodybuilding hypertrophy workouts count.
*Please consult with a physician or any other health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises on your own. I will do my best to give progressions and things to be cautious of as necessary. Ideally, everyone should be screened for proper movement before starting an exercise program.
The following is my daily routine,
30-45 min Yoga & Meditation upon waking up
Day 1- Back, Core & Calves
Day 2- Delts & Triceps
Day 3- Thighs, Core & Calves
Day 4- Chest & Biceps
Day 5-Flush day jog/swim/blade or Rest day depending on how I feel.
15 min Meditation/Restoration
Hot & Cold shower, 1 min hot + 30 seconds cold x 4 + Restoration!
Breakfast/Pre workout– LARGE bowl of fruit. (banana, nectarine, dates, goji berries, dried coconut flakes, hemp seed, sunflower seeds, soaked walnuts), or a banana, mango & date smoothie with a few added goodies like maca, bee pollen, spirulina, aloe juice etc.
Post Workout– Shake (1 scoop Vega Protein, medjool dates, goji berries, bee pollen)

Dinner– LARGE spinach salad with fresh vegetables, sprouts, soaked nuts and a seed & freshly squeezed citrus juice dressing
Pre Bed– Shake (1 scoop Vega protein, ground flax seed, aloe vera juice)
Things went rather well this week. My body fat went down and my weight went up which is perfect. As much as I expressed that I don’t enjoy the bodybuilding style workouts, they were kind of refreshing for a change and I am looking forward to them this week after seeing my numbers. I didn’t really stress about my nutrition last week and my results were still great so I will not be tweaking anything this week nutritionally and using the progressive overload principle in regards to strength training to continue making gains. Alright everyone, have a prosperous week and I will catch you next Sunday. Stay safe and happy!
