Inner voices of doubt are slowly creeping in my head. I’m on my 3rd week of my 6 Weeks to Shred challenge and aside from the increase in strength, physically I am not seeing what I’m aiming for.
I know I’ve only just started the week and from what I read about building muscles, results usually starts showing in the 3rd week, so I’m hopeful. Also, as much as I love food, I understand that I have to start to tighten up on how much food I eat everyday and/or what kind. I guess that would also mean that my splurge day will have to tone down as well. 🙁
That’s okay. I know I can do this! Because if there’s one thing I know of myself is that, If I want it so bad, I’m gonna go for it! 😉
Alright, so much for my revelations and moving on to my results for Day 15.
Early morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee, banana
Breakfast: 3 eggs red pepper & cheese omelet, grapefruit
Snack: handful of mixed nuts
Lunch: Leftover Pork Adobo, mango
Dinner: Creamy Chicken Sun-dried Tomato sauce with spaghetti squash & mixed veggies.
We’ve begun 3rd Week, 1st training day of Rock Solid program, Rotation and Rear.
I love this section of Rock Solid program because I can push myself to work with heavier weights!
So here’s what I did:
Deadlift: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 8 reps/ 48 lbs, 53 lbs, 60 lbs
Swing: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 8 reps/ 35 lbs, 44 lbs, 53 lbs
SLDL: 3 sets/ 6, 5, 4 reps each side/ 48 lbs, 48 lbs, 53 lbs
Bottoms Up Press: 3 sets of 3 reps each side, 15 lbs
* I tried bottoms up with a 20 lbs and I managed to successfully do it with my right arm but failed on my left.
1-arm rows (slow): 3 sets of 3 reps each using 35 lbs.
Russian Twists: 3 sets of 30 reps each side/ 25 lbs.
On top of my workout routine, I also did the fitness challenges:
Day 4 of 21 days Kettlebell Press challenge
– 4 sets/ 3,2,2,2 reps each side with 20 lbs.
– 2 sets/ 1 rep each side with 25 lbs.
I tried to do 2 consecutive reps on each arm using 25 lbs. And same with my bottoms up, I managed to do it on the right arm but my left still needs more time to get stronger.
Day 4 of 25 days Plank challenge
– plank for 30 seconds
Tomorrow I’ll be doing rock solid routine for my 2nd training day plus the fitness challenges. Stay tuned!
