Just finished the 1st work out. Much simpler workout than i’m used too. Still have to figure out the proper weight for squats for the 4/5rm. I think I went way too light for the first day.
First time ever doing the Ab Wheel roll out…Boy,that little bastard of a device has it’s own reserved spot in hell doesnt it?
Just finished my afternoon meal and I’m feeling kinda ill and bloaty…I wonder if im having a reaction to the BCAA’s and L-luecine (Never took them together before)…I’m hoping my body gets used to them because I feel crappy. Head feeling buzzy and all explody right now.

I went through and did a practice round of the workouts last week so I could get a feel for them. I am not used to doing such low reps. I was OK on the squats today but only because I had done that practice workout last week. You probably have a better idea of what weight to use next week.

IM used to doing high weight and low reps. I’ve been doing the Critical Bench program so I have a lot of notes on reps and weight that I can refer back too to save time but when ever you switch to a new program there is always a learning curve to deal with.

Hi TR, same thing happened to me for my first workout yesterday, i thought I had the weights figured out, but went a bit too low, but that just prepares us for next week. Good Luck


#9

Did a 5 mile quick walk followed up with 3 sets of 10 lower back lifts on my GHD…


#10

Tough work out. Even with a cup of coffee as an extra pre workout boost. I was definetly feeling the lower calorie intake. But I got it done.
Not seeing any weight loss or change in measurements yet. But, it IS only day 3.


#11

This week has probably been some of the toughest workouts I have ever done. Lack of energy and a stomach full of sweet sweet protein shake has made it really hard to keep up the intensity.


#12

Nepa (slow pace) row for 6 miles.
1/2 hr later started feeling woosy, not getting enough carbs im guessing. So, I broke down and had a slice of bread, butter and a dab of smoked gouda cheese,I know, I know it was bad but I feel so much better now.


#13

Just a little slip in the road, get back on the horse mate! Good Luck today


#14

wow,tough work out…I had to take nearly 100 lbs off my bench press to squeeze out 40 reps!!!
Havent really lost any weight yet, but I may have lost 1/2" off my waist. Hard to say because bloat on the 1st day could have effected the first readings…I’ll know for sure next Monday.


#15

had my HSM beef and pork vegi stir fry at home…Boy,real food feels great!

Also,2 days before weigh in and I still havent lost 1 pound My fat percentage is still around 10.9-11.2%
I definetly feel my strength leaving me and im following the diet 99.9%. I had 1 slip up.
So, either im eating too much or not working out hard enough…I dont feel like im getting enough calories and I definetly am working out with the proper intensity.
Very confused here.


#16

Might I suggest posting your question in the ask Chris section? I haven’t seen him in the logs much but seems to respond there pretty quickly.


#17

I did, but my question doesnt show up on Chris’s page. Not sure why.

If it’s 2 days before weigh in how do you know you haven’t lost any weight?

Just wait the two days and then do your weight and measurements. I get to do it tomorrow. I’m doing my weight and just measuring weekly the 4 areas that I really want to trim down (waist, thighs, etc) tomorrow and weekly thereafter. I will do the thorough measurements after the full 28 days and then again after transition. Hang in there! I’m feeling frustrated too like I’m working so hard and I don’t feel much different except way less energy, yucky guts, and irritable. Not fun. But if it transforms me over the course of 4 weeks + 2 transition weeks so that I eat healthier and look better and am closer to my goal, I gotta stay the course. Maybe this is the test of our determination and commitment. One day, one shake at a time. I feel your frustration thought, definitely.
