Thanks mr.average 99..have to admit I'm well chuffed...I have taken some time off training to do a few other things and started again this week with a 4 week hybrid of the 'max' workouts of insanity and 3 runs per week...this will be ok for now as I am hoping to buy the other bits and pieces I need for insanity such as weights, bands, ladder, pull-up bar etc...so until finds allow I'll keep on doing 'my own thang'
Came home from our winter 2011 holiday to Egypt with the g/f. Seeing the holiday happy snaps made me think who was this beached whale..As I always had this image of me being a 007 six packed type super hero...not a 44 y/o, balding overweight (77.7kg) man looking very tired of life.
Here are my numbers for Insanity: 31.12.12 - 02.03.13
Fit Tests (all eight excercises total)
1. 334 2. 445 33.23% increase from test 1 3. 518 16.40% increase from test 2 4. 562 8.49% increase from test 3 5. 629 11.92% increase from test 4
31.12.12 - 70.2kg (11.10% body fat), 62.41kg lean body weight, 7.79kg body fat. 27.01.13 - 68.2kg ( 9.54% body fat), 61.69kg lean body weight, 6.51kg body fat. 03.03.13 - 66.7kg ( 7.41% body fat), 61.76kg lean body weight, 4.94kg body fat.
*working on the basis that there will always be a 'fudge' factor with these figure I will err on the side of caution and say the bf % is aprox 8.5% which still makes me very happy.
What did I learn?
The scales are not your friend...but a decent set of fat calipers & tape are.
Know exactly what you put in your mouth..know your carbs, protein, fat amounts each day. Know how many cal you 'spent' that day.
Learn to love you...some find sweat 'icky'... it's just your bodies way of showing the world what 'liquid awesome' looks like!
Now matter how bad you feel...push play..if you just cannot do a single excercise, push play, sit down and watch the machines do their thing.
Don't lose heart after 15, 30 days because you have not seen the results you expected...be patient...they will appear and appear when you least expect it....
If you want a buddy, message me at beachbody..I'm not a coach or wannabe coach nor will I become one...but if you just need to chat with someone...you know what to do.
