So far so good! 5 weeks of the Body Beast mass gaining program down, 7 to go. When I checked in last week, I said that I was almost up to 180 lbs, but for some reason I have lost 4 lbs since then. Not sure what happened, and I even weighed myself in the middle of the day. I did make a few changes to my diet, though, not being so carb heavy late at night. In all honesty, it’s tough eating this many carbs! I love carbs, but holy cow, I feel like that’s all I’m eating. Instead, I’ve been eating protein snacks late, and the lower carbs and higher protein must be leading to some weight loss. Really, I have no idea what happened and that’s the best I can come up with! LOL! Regardless, I’m still up about 8 lbs since starting Body Beast.
The Body Beast workouts are going great. I’m really enjoying the new Bulk Chest workout, which involves a lot of flys and presses. I do wish they would have added in some barbell presses as well, but I can see how that would be an issue for people working out at home, since it is, well, a home workout program. However, I have my own bench and barbell and have decided to add in it there. Anyways, the progressive sets in the Bulk series really make it challenging, and I love a challenge and pushing myself. The toughest of the workouts so far would have to be Bulk Legs. I did it again yesterday with a few buddies of mine and dang, I thought I was going to have to pause and make a trip to the bathroom. I was pushing VERY hard yesterday, increasing the weights and doing a few more reps than the guys in the video, and there were a few times where I got a little light headed and nauseated, but I kept chuggin’ along. Today my legs are just ridiculously sore, so tomorrow I won’t be able to walk. If you’re not completely drenched by the end of this workout, you’re not doing it right.
I absolutely love the new Body Beast program and can’t wait to see what type of results I get after 90 days. Like I said before, I will post my “after” pictures once I have them! I have a feeling you’re going to see a very drastic change. If you have any questions about the program, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
