Week 4 Update!

January 31, 2012

And here we are… just as we have started to plateau a bit, we get kicked into Phase II.   I now have the pleasure of attempting to stay on track while in Amsterdam this week.  Should be interesting to see how this plays out in a place known for weed and french fries…

Also… 30 day pics are due tomorrow.  Time to see how this is all shaking out…

Week 3 – Measurements

January 24, 2012

Week 3 is behind us and we are a couple of days into our rest week.  Unfortunately, that just means there is a lot of yoga.   shit.   Here are the updates…

Week 2 Updates…

January 18, 2012

So… I’m a little late on this.  Work has been a pain in the ass lately.   The biggest change you will probably see here is that we have already suffered our first casualty.  Brent tweaked his knee pretty good while playing soccer… so he is out of commission for a bit.  Here is the update…

 

Week 1 in the bag

January 10, 2012

Here is how we stack up after week 1.  I think Brent is either on a pizza diet, is measuring wrong, or just failing in general.

Week 1 reflection and review

January 9, 2012

First lets discuss the diet. I’m doing this: http://www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com/ . Its a meat and potatoes diet, minus the potatoes. Basically what I did last time to great affect, so why change it. I don’t count calories. I’m a grown man for christ sake. I eat when I’m hungry; eat until I’m full. Beer is out. I like vodka better, so its skinny bitches for the next few months. Find our old blog if you want to know what a skinny bitch is. FYI, we should have trade market that name, now you can buy pre-made drinks under the name.

The workout. I’ve come to a conclusion that is both great and scary at the same time. These workouts aren’t as hard as I was expecting. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not maxing out on anything, hell, I still have to pause occasionally. The main difference is I can get through them without stopping every 5 minutes for a near death experience. So what did I learn you ask? When we did the P90x in 2009, I must have been in the worst shape of my life. I can remember wanting to die, back tightening up, couldn’t move, and felt like puking 15 minutes. Scary to think I would let myself get that way.

Mixing in a ball, be it medicine or the stability ball, is bullshit. I can’t do a push up using a ball as support, not happening. Maybe in a few weeks.

Lunch break over. I’ll finish later today.

Day 1 – We have some work to do
