No Regrets!

About this time last year I was watching a lot of P90x success story videos on You Tube trying to convince myself that I could do it.  Like many of you reading this I had tried and failed the program.  I decided after a long You Tube viewing session that there are just too many success stories out there that prove that the Beachbody solution works.  I have just crossed my one year Anniversary since making the decision to change my life.  DECIDE, COMMIT, and you will SUCCEED.

Body Beast Modification

While doing the Bulk Back Workout tonight I modified the Reverse Grip Bent Over Rows with the T-bar row with low row attachment handle. (170 lbs). Just another way to modify Body Beast if you have barbells. I love this movement. I used to do a lot of T-bar rows in high school and college.  Weighing in at 192 lbs tonight.

Accountability

Merry Christmas!!  I don’t know about you guys, but is anyone else getting tired of seeing the “Elf on a Shelf” pictures floating around facebook and the internet?  I think it’s time for that little dude to BEAST UP!  That way he might be more effective in his duties of keeping my kids straight!

Tour of my weight room (with buying advice)

weight_roomI could not have completed Body Beast without my Beast Cave!  I started collecting weights when I was 16 years old making minimum wage at a sandwich shop.  Back then I had my weights in my Parent’s basement, and I wanted to upgrade that weight room, but was told no.  Which I am very thankful for since, as started telling myself that if I ever got to the point in life to own a house I would have a basement and a dedicated weight room.  In fact it was one of my very few requirements for getting a house, along with making my wife happy of course.   This video just let’s you step into my man cave for a bit and you’ll here how I went about furnishing my weight room.
