Solid Workout, could add weight though,….

Yesterday afternoon I walked into the locker room and a gent I have known for some time looked over at me and said, “Dam Rob, You are looking good”

I looked back and said, “Whoa big boy, I’m married!”  Kind of funny, we both laughed. It’s nice when it starts becoming noticeable. 

I am getting it back quickly. TNT, you had said previously that it would not take long and it has not. The deeper I got into my circuit last night the stronger I felt, increased the speed of my reps and closed the rest period down.

When I am feeling good I try to work between a heart rate of 125 – 150 bpm. It wears me right. I do a set, check my rate, when I level at 125-130 I move onto the next set. It’s not exactly the science the books call for in rest between sets. What I find is that the deeper I move into my sets the less rest time I take. It mixes a resistance train with a cardio.

It seems to be working for me. I feel ready to take on a written program again, where just a few weeks ago I tried and did not fair so well.

    Glad to see you are back in action.

    I set the following goal for myself – to be within 10 pounds of weight I wanted to at for the rest of my life, and until I hit that point – I was freak’n obsessive in my adherance to Plan A. Once I hit that point, I moved on to Plan B and eventually to where I am now. Believe me – now – I enjoy – mostly guilt free.

    I just switched back to Plan B shakes since I am trying to really increase my weights. So – I ate a fat free fruit yogurt with my coffee and protein shake before I left for the gym and finished my workout with a fat free chocolate milk and protein shake. A Heady Experience. Damn – I love chocolate milk.

    What is you final weight goal – have you set it?

    Enjoy the holiday weekend.

  2. My target right now is 190.
    if I could keep my shoulders, chest, & legs, lose it from my midsection, 180.

    Fat free stuff? is that because of the calories?

    One of my problems is, is that I like all things chocolate.

      Fat free has nothing to do with calories. The fat slows down the absorbtion of the protein and carbs. You are trying to get that stuff to your muscles fast. That is why you have the 2nd shake immediately after the workout – as in – minutes.

      Get close to 200 and then switch to Plan B.

      Who does’t like all things chocolate – oh year – my office manager – she doesn’t – how strange is that.

  3. Will do. If I keep doing what I am doing I should be at or around 200 within a couple of weeks.

    I started reading the TNT book a few days ago for the second time. I have been on again – off again for the past 4 months or so, figure it is time to digest the entire plan again.

    Played a round of golf with my 3 sons today, first time in as long as I can remember that we played as a foursome. Great time, energy is good today.

    I am a slave driver, we work tomorrow until 3pm. No rest for the wicked!
