Body Beast Day 30 Results

Putting in the work despite a hurt shoulder. This past week I also replaced my morning protein shake with Shakeology and went up to 4000 calories, then started losing weight. I ended up grinding in oatmeal with the morning shake. So far I’m grinding 1 cup of Oatmeal with the Chocolate Banana Nutter recipe. I think I’m going to go up to 1.5 cups of oatmeal in the coming week (I have a lot of oatmeal left over from my P90x journey). I want to put on MMMMMAAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! Down 1 lb this week despite eating like a rabid dog and taking 2 off days between the Bulk Shoulders and Bulk Chest workouts.

Body Beast Drop Set and Hitting Rep Goals

This video illustrates the concept of the drop set in Body Beast where you do two sets of 8 reps back to back dropping weight on your 2nd set. In this video I illustrate how I deal with getting behind in reps with the guys in the video (who are sandbagging!) and I actually fail on the drop set (2nd set of 8) and I drop weight to hit my rep goal. I also show how I mark up my worksheet to reflect the failure on the drop set.

How to Beast Up Your Shakeology

In my 4th week of Body Beast I found my self losing 2 lbs eating close to 4000 calories per day, so I decided to add a few calories to my morning Shakeology. Basically I just follow the Chocolate Banana Nutter recipe but just add 1/2 cup of old fashioned oatmeal to it and grind it up first. I also eat two English muffins with almond butter and flax seed with this shake.

Recipe:
1/2 cup of oatmeal (grind)
1 scoop of Shakeology
1 Banana
1 Tablespoon of peanut butter
10 ounces of water
10 ounces of ice
