I completed the V-Diet in April of last year and to everyone that is going to begin listen to Chris when he states “pear-shaped bodies will end up looking like smaller pears” when it comes to the supplements that you use.
I used chain-store brand supplements and I did end up losing 20 pounds but all I did was shrink. Yes, my waist went down to 32 inches but my bench dropped to about 250 pounds, my squat went down, etc…
During phase 2 last time I decided to start (and later completed) SOB training and I lost another 10 pounds but was so weak that I didn’t get the results that I wanted.
Anyways… Here we go again. This time I’ve bought the recommended supplements and am following the training plan outlined.
Woke up, measured, weighed:
Height - 6 ft
Weight - 198 lbs
Neck - 15 in
Shoulders - 46 in
Upper Chest - 43 in
Lower Chest - 38.5 in
Waist at navel - 37 in (damn)
Waist at largest - 37 in
Hips - 36 in
Left Upper Arm - 14.5 in
Right Upper Arm - 14 in
Left Upper Leg - 23.5 in
Right Upper Leg - 24
Left Lower Leg - 15 in
Right Lower Leg - 15.5 in
Both Ankles - 9 in
Left Forearm - 12 in
Right Forearm - 12.5 in
I took each supplement/shake approx 4 hours apart and I liked them for the most part. The Chocolate shake doesn’t mix well but after putting it in a blender it was a lot better. The only thing I didn’t really like was the Superfood. It did taste like tea and I hate tea. But, that’s the way it goes, I’ll keep drinking it.
I did the workout today and that was hit and miss. I’m in the military and I have to participate in mandatory PT. Today’s PT was a 2 mile run with various calisthenics every 1/2 mile.
After PT I did the version 3 workout and it started great. Then I started the overhead squats. On squats I’ve started to go ass-to-grass but when I did this with a starter weight of 115 (I was a little concerned so I went light) I almost fell over. That one will take some practice.
Barbell Row - 135x5, 185x5, 185x5, 185x5
Overhead squat - 115x3, 65x5, 65x5, 65x5, 75x5 (I need to practice this)
Dips - 45 plate x 5, 45x5, 45x5, 45x5
Ab roller 4 sets of 5
I followed the rest periods for the first workout except for once during the barbell row. One of the guys at the gym wanted to talk about HSS-100 so I took an extra 30 seconds or so.
So, thats the beginning of round 2. This time I’ll follow it to the T and complete it once again. I’ll post my weights on M/W/F and measurements once a week, probably on Sundays. Pics are coming too.
