MyFitnessPal Guide For Newbies

unnamedSince every once in a while I get new friends asking me for help and advices as to how to use MFP to lose weight or calculate calories and macros (macronutrients), etc., I decided to write the last message I sent, in a way I could use it for a blog post. One thing I really want to let you guys know, fitness is not easy, and by that I mean, don’t expect to learn all there is about fitness in a 5 words sentence. What I mean with this is, as much as I like to help everyone who needs it, there’s no way I can summarize it all in one sentence, therefore this post will be VERY LONG, but I will try my best to keep it somehow interesting and save you from having to visit another 100 websites/pages by giving you possible scenarios and possibilities, so you can choose what works best for you. All this information will come from my own research and paid programs, so I do hope you appreciate all the info I’m providing here. Read more

New Workout Plan

unnamed

After such a huge disappointment with MP45 (or as I call it, MPieceOfCrap45), I am putting
together a workout routine for my own needs an capabilities. The idea is to make proper adjustments during the first week  figuring out what amount of sets and exercises will work for me, mostly based on how much time I’m willing to spend at the gym. The current split I’ll be doing is a two days of heavy lifting (lower and upper body), one rest day, followed by moderate to lighter weight routines distributed as follows. One legs days, one back and biceps day, one chest and triceps day, a rest day and a shoulders and traps day. Cardio and abs will be extra to this split. I’m not planning on a weekly split, but instead on consecutive days, which will make each day of the week different from the previous week. Also, I’m dedicating a day just for shoulders since Read more

MP45 Final Review

Facepalm-Meme-06
Today being the first day of week number 2 doing MPieceOfCrap45, better known as MP45, I have decided to put an end to this nonsense and stop using this SCAM.

It is unfortunate that I cannot give a detailed example of why I am stopping this program by showing you the actual list of the workouts and diet, but I will try to explain the best I can why this program is 100% crap. I’ll try to do this in a short summary below, and then I’ll explain in better Read more

MP45 Review – Week 1

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 12.40.43 AM

Is this how I look after completing one week of MP45? By the end of this post you’ll know whether or not that’s the case.

This is my first official review of the MP45 fitness program after one week of following both the exercises routines and meal plan. The workout plan doesn’t get any easy, although I’m disappointed at the description of phase 1 of getting acclimated by the creator of this plan when stating “focusing on full body workouts 3 times during the week plus 2 cardio workouts on different days”. My main issue with this, being someone who has been working out for a while, is the lack of focus on muscle groups. I’m a huge fan of giving each muscle group plenty of attention, especially working my shoulders a lot since they are muscles I’m trying to develop more, but for now I’ve been limited to what the program suggests. As part of my review I have to stick Read more
