My Goal for 2012
I’ve said it before: resolutions suck. Instead, I like to focus on goals. One of them is to get my fat butt into shape.
More specifically, by the end of 2012, I want to weigh 185 lbs, with significant fat loss.
Where am I now? Well, it’s embarrassing – here are the stats:
- Height: 5’7″
- Weight: 215 lbs
- Waist: 45 inches
- Hips: 43 inches
- Pants size: tight fitting 38
- BMI: Who knows? It’s high!
What is a guy to do? Well, the fit test near killed me, so looks like I will have to start from the beginning. It’s all about body weight exercises for the resistance training, and the occasional Turbo Jam workout with my wife (and son.) I am not so keen on the hour-long, grueling, inflammatory cardio sessions, but the 20 minute blast hits the spot.
I plan to write what I am doing here for accountability. I hope I actually get better, not worse.
Grok squat (warmup)
The following exercises are done with a 2-1-2 cadence. (Slowly down for 2 seconds, pause 1 second, up 2 seconds.)
- Wall push ups x20
- Wall push ups x30
- Knee tucks x17
- Knee tucks x13
- Plank x 34 seconds
- Plank x 24 seconds
Turbo Jam 20 min workout (only about 15 min though)
Yes, it was a bit of a push today. Nothing like a bit of racing heartbeat to tell you that you are working hard.
Some might begrudge the wall push ups. I admit, I am out of shape. Thing is, when you do the push ups super slowly, it is a hard workout. By push up number 15, your arms are feeling it.
Until tomorrow! (Tomorrow is a rest day, so more like a bit of stretching an play with my son.)
