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
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
What better than celebrating Valentine’s Day by running a Spartan Race? Luckily for me, I don’t really celebrate V-Day, but I do love obstacle races, which was a pretty damn good reason to stay away fro all the love posts online.
Left home at 4am to drive up to Tampa, with enough time to get ready for the race, including setting up my GoPro camera. Temperature was around 42º by the time my race was about to start, which is not a big deal, but when you’re about to run and most probably jump in cold water, it becomes one of those “oh crap, this is going to be fun…. not” moments.
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
I apologize for not posting my review and progress during week three. Between work and being busy exploring new events and activities more than I have previously, I barely had any time left to post my review. Instead, here I am, when I have officially completed week 4 of STS. Therefore, what I’m planning to do is an overview of both week 3 and week 4, going over what I consider the most important parts. Read more
Here I am, two weeks into the program and about to start my third week of STS (or S2S like some like to call it). So, what has been different about this second week? Not much really, other than reps per set and of course decreasing my carbohydrates. While the first 3 days of training the reps range decreased, allowing me to go heavier on each exercise, during the remaining 3 days of the week the reps increased, which of course, had me using less weight to meet the reps goals. One of my concerns was how my body would react to eating 93.6 g of carbs less a day, but my body reacted nice to it, not making feel with less energy. Read more
It has been a week already since I started Shortcut to Shred, and I won’t deny I was a little intimidated by the sudden caloric increase in my diet. This morning, just as I did last Wednesday as soon as I woke up, I took my new set of pictures, got on the scale, measured myself and measured my body fat % using my very cheap caliper.
Before I continue to compare today’s measurements with last week’s, I will talk a little about my experience during this first week when it. Read more
