Hello world! I’m back today with a short update in regards to my progress using Lee Lebrada’s Lean program. At this point I am kicking myself for not doing the one thing I always do before starting any fitness program… taking the before pictures. Except for one shirtless picture I took the day before I started the program, I have no other pictures taken.
So…..! What’s new? Well, after losing 1 lb during week one, I gained back that one pound after my third week. I adjusted my Read more
And it’s been officially a week…. and one day since I started Lee Lebrada’s 12-week lean body trainer. Although the plan doesn’t follow a 7 days a week format, I’m counting each week since the program’s length is 12 weeks, besides, it is easier to check progress this way.
So! What are my first impressions and what results did I get, if any? Well, Read more
I know, we’re not even half way through this year and I’m already planning my fitness goals for 2017, but with my fitness/physical background, it is something I should be getting ready for starting right now. My friends from MyFitnessPal say I’m not crazy, but after coming up with this goals for next year, I’m not too sure they are right about that. At the end, it seems the older I get, the crazier are the ideas I’m getting when it comes to fitness. So here are my 2017 fitness goals, and what I’m planning on doing to get ready for them.
1- A Spartan Race Trifecta
• Spartan Sprint
• Spartan Super
• Spartan Beast
2- An Olympic Triathlon
• Swim 0.93mi (1.5km)
• Bike 24.8mi (40km)
• Run 6.2mi (10km)
3- The 50 mile Fakawi Mountain Bike Fest
Now, you might think with so many fitness programs I’ve done Read more
It seems BeachBody has done a good job at more than one thing, but doesn’t necessarily mean all of those things are good for the general public trying to get a real review of their products with the infinite amount of horrible “product reviews” by BeachBody coaches which their only purpose is to get people to buy the products. So, while I’m not saying BeachBody’s products are bad, it is frustrating the excess amount of reviews by their coaches, and lack of detailed and honest reviews.
I’m not planning on posting a long blog, since I don’t have much to talk about this topic, more than I’ve already talked, but as I might try do P90X3 because I want to do something short enough due to my work schedule, avoiding having to drive to the gym, and at the same time giving myself a break from the gym environment, I was hoping to see the kind of results people have gotten with one cycle of P90X3, but all I’ve found is coaches selling the program through their incredible reviews… Reviews that claim it is better than the original P90X.
In any case, if I get to do this program, I’ll surely be posting my review and progress throughout the whole 90 days.
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
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
Today was my first day doing MP45. While is too soon to talk good or bad about the program, I wanted to do a quick review today, and then start doing weekly summaries about the progress in general, including meals and workouts.
How was my first impression in regards to the workout. While I had already written down on my notepad each set I needed to do, so when the time came I only had to write the weight and reps information along with any notes for future reference, I didn’t realize how intense the workout was going to be. Personally, I truly believe Read more
MP45? What is that thing? Well, in case you haven’t been paying attention to the internet ads, Facebook fitness groups, and Google results for best fitness programs, MP45 seems to be the newest and “hottest” workout system where some people are claiming these amazing results in just 45 days. Yes, you read that right, only 45 days. Of course, me being me, Read more
One would say that after trying so many fitness plans I should already look like a fitness model. Yet, here I am, fat… I mean far from looking like one, and asking myself why.
While the answer could be narrowed to two very simple facts, I would dare to say it goes beyond those two reasons, but for the purpose of this blog and to avoid getting into a ridiculously long post, I’ll stick with those two, which are diet and health. Read more
It has been quite a few weeks since I finished Shortcut to Shred, and for one reason or another I wasn’t able to do a final review. Today, I’m finally able to sit down and share with you my final thoughts about the program based on my own perspective, experience and results.
As mentioned before, Shortcut to Shred seemed to be a promising solution to cut down or shred body fat. The concept, which is mainly based on reducing carbohydrates during a 3 phase setting, puts you on a caloric deficit, which one way or another would make anyone lose weight. Of course, the main goal is to lose body fat and little to no muscle mass, but this is where it gets tricky. Read more
