First week complete.
weight: down 4lbs
biggest change: down 2 inches off the gut.
Front squat weight stayed the same at 195lbs. This week was able to hit all 20 reps. Also went up in the bench press. Used the 24kg kettlebells for pressing and it was adequately more difficult than the 20kg bells.
Started adding weight to the chin-ups, just a 10kg kettlebell, hit 10, then 5 and 5 on the reps.
Ab-rollouts are also getting easier.
I SWEAT A LOT on these workouts. It might be that I’m actually getting more water and less beer/wine… Haven’t touched alcohol in 7 days, although when I’m in social situations (three BBQ’s last week) I can smell it, which is odd because I’ve never noticed that before.
Had some odd cramping in the quads at random times on day 5 and 6.
For V-burn, I actually got slower than my test round. Not sure why though. I’ve swapped double-unders for j-rope, elevated feet pike-push-ups, full burpees (push-up and jump), and kept to the more difficult options for the intermediate workout series. Not doing 60 HSPU yet, but I’ll get there.
Deadlifts I’ve had to keep light because of previous back injury. Looking forward to when that’s healed up.
all said and done it was a solid week.
Ready for week 2!
