Back to the trails, interesting observations about cardio. Camp Cozy, Wekiwa.

If you’ve been following my cut at all over the past four weeks, you know I’ve been very strict with my diet and training as I work towards my goals of 7% body fat, exceptional cardiovascular fitness and muscle endurance. I designed my training program specifically for these purposes, and training has gone extremely well. Over the past month I’ve been very busy working on the redesign of JSF, and because of that all of… [Read more]

2011 cut weekly progress report: Week #4 Myotape

Week #4 of my 2011 cut is complete, and so it’s time to check my progress and make any necessary adjustments to my diet and training. If you’re trying to lose fat or gain muscle it’s absolutely critical that you check your progress–and not just with a bathroom scale. I recommend that once every week you check your scale weight, your body fat percentage (using a caliper, not an inaccurate BIA scale) and your soft… [Read more]

Great workouts don’t happen by accident; First training photos of 2011. January 28, 2011 - doing curls, making faces.

Yesterday’s back/traps/biceps workout continued my string of incredible workouts so far on this cut. I’m four weeks in and there’s not been so much as an average workout, let alone a poor one. These workouts haven’t been great by accident: they’ve been great because I’ve been maintaining a very strict and healthy diet, I’ve been getting plenty of rest, I’m consuming no alcohol and I am in a very positive state of mind. When I… [Read more]

I miss riding in the woods! On the trails at Wekiwa.

I came pretty close to hopping on my bike (my real bike) and hitting the trails for yesterday’s cardio, but I just didn’t have the time. I have not been out on the trails since the beginning of this month, and I miss it. The reason all my cardio training has been indoors is because I’ve been working 80-90 hours per week all month long. Aside from work, training and meal prep I’ve spent practically… [Read more]

My current chest/triceps/delts workout. Triceps! Loki!

My Wednesday workout (chest/triceps/delts) is my most voluminous workout of the week. It’s a tough one, but I really enjoy it. I had another phenomenal workout yesterday, and I’m happy to report that I’m still not experiencing any wrist or shoulder pain. The weights are getting up there, too; my strength is improving rapidly. I don’t think I’ve mentioned what I’ve been doing for my chest/triceps/delts workout so far on this cut, so here it… [Read more]

Week 4 of my cut, and cardio is getting serious. The cardiovascular system

Everyone knows that if you want to improve your cardiovascular system and overall level of conditioning then you’ve got to train on a regular basis. If you want to keep improving your cardiovascular abilities, then it’s not enough to simply train: you’ve got to constantly ramp up the difficulty level. You’ve probably heard that our bodies are remarkably adaptive, and that’s absolutely true. Let’s say you climb on the recumbent bike or step on the… [Read more]

In the zone; Where are the cravings?; Wrist pain update. Wrist wraps

Yesterday’s leg workout was the best workout of this cut, and considering how well my workouts have been going this month that’s a significant statement. I added 5 pounds to leg extensions, 5 pounds to lying leg curls, 10 pounds to squats and 5 pounds to 1-leg calf raises. I kept my rest intervals to a strict 60 seconds between sets and 120 seconds between exercises. On the 1-leg calf raises I actually started my… [Read more]
