Body Beast Day 60 Results

Still eating like a horse and ended up eating 4000 to 4200 calories to get my weight up to 197 lbs. My strength has definitly improved and my worksheets clearly indicate this. I like to draw a box over any improvements I have in my worksheets as it motivates me to keep “Going Up Wit Da Weight!”  MyDay 1 and Day 60 measurements are below…arms up 1.5 inches.  Bulk phase end, Beast Mode begin, time to get infomercial ready!

P90x Late Night Snack

I hear a lot of people talking about whether or not it is good to eat a late night snack.  Well I lost 35 lbs in 6 months eating one, and I love my 6th meal of the day!  This is the snack I used on a fat shredder diet.  It is protein rich and has fast digesting whey along with slow digesting casein proteins from the cottage cheese to feed your body through the night.

 

Why I like Being a Coach!

His name is Arel Farrington, and he lives in St Thomas Virgin Islands (US Territory), and he is recovering from a motorcycle accident in December 2011 where he was walking home from work and a motorcycle lost control and hit him. He has had six surgeries on his right leg (they pulled some muscle from his stomach to put on his leg), and this guy loves to dance. Arel wants to lose 45 pounds so it is easier for him to dance. I had a chance to speak with Arel the other day let me just say his attitude given his situation is very inspirational, and I’m honored to have him in my P90x Challenge Group starting November 5th. If you want to join Arel in this P90x group that will finish just in time for Valentines Day, please fill out the information on my contact page. Arel found me from my P90x Transformation video on YouTube, but his YouTube channel is so much more interesting. Check out Arel’s Mad SKillz below!!

Body Beast Modification – Arnold Press

After having wrecked my shoulder early on in Body Beast (my own fault trying to be a hero!!), Chris from my Body Beast thread mentioned a fantastic substitute for the Arnold Press in the first Super Set of Bulk Back and it involves a Barbell and Olympic plates.  The Arnold Press is painful with a wrecked shoulder and a wrecked Bicep (why Chris found this alternative), and apparently a lot of us in the thread have a wrecked shoulder, so I want to post this here for anyone else in case they are looking for an alternative.   Watch how my shoulder is not destroyed at the end and that I can IMMEDIATELY go and Upright Row 95 lbs for 15 reps on the next set, when just last week I barely got 95 lbs for 8 reps in the same progressive set! The idea is that this substitute works similar muscle groups without the pain. I must say it was very effective and kept a lot of stress out of my problem areas. Will probably do this from now on instead of the Arnold Press…whatever this exercise is called. Thanks Chris!

 

P90x Moment

Those who have crushed the P90x program with a disciplined diet and work ethic have probably experienced a P90x Moment. It may be the first time you take off your shirt in front of people who haven’t seen you in a while, or having to buy smaller pants..etc. Well…here is my P90x moment, and it happened on day 82 of my 1st round.

 

 

Success

I absolutely have to thank my coach Charlie Sison for the nutritional support, motivation, and providing an avenue on Facebook for accountability for my success with P90x. Working with my coach took my P90x Round 2 results to the next level, and ultimately becoming one of the Beachbody Challenge Winners for October 2012. Talk about motivation to keep going. Now that I am a coach, it is my goal to make all of my clients Beachbody Challenge Winners as well. Challenge Groups are the best way to succeed with the Beachbody programs as you are paired with people with similar goals with the same start and end date. The people I am coaching now are discovering same benefits that I had in a challenge group and I hope to feature their success stories here at Dedicated Republic with a similar picture below! Please visit the Contact Me page and fill out form if you are interested in joining a Challenge Group.

FITNESS + NUTRITION + SUPPORT = SUCCESS
