Sorry I’ve been so reticent (not revealing in my thoughts or feelings) lately. I’ve been a busy boy – busy getting my ass kicked.
Or perhaps not so much kicked as reshaped – literally – these lunge matrixes are nuts.
The Knife blog/training project kinda snowballed on me. I went from eating Taco Bell at 2 a.m. to “eating clean” (as Adam is so fond of saying), downing IPA’s to drinking horrible green mixtures of powdered plant matter and screaming through karaoke at Trav’s to screaming through workouts. Y’know, basically sweating my guts out on the floor of this little gym I never knew existed until 6 months ago.
FUN FACT: I sweat so much that the halo of perspiration I leave on the floor after a workout is something Adam and Cathy have started calling “sweat angels” (you can see a slight example above).
But I wouldn’t trade it for the world…
And now I, along with two other brave souls, have begun the 4-Month Extreme Transformation with Blaine Davidson. You can check out the link for the details but basically it’s four 1.5 hour sessions a week for four months and he tells you what, why and when to eat.
Even though I was doing personal training twice a week, working out on my own and trying to eat healthier this training regimen has taken my fitness to the next level – in just three weeks.
When we started I weighed 285 lbs. In just a few weeks I’m down to 279 lbs. and I’ve put on more than 5 lbs. of muscle. And we’re just starting the cardio phase…
Blaine says I can get down to 220-230. After losing a mere 15 or so pounds since starting at The Inner Circle I shudder for a moment at the work I know that will entail. But I am also excited by the challenge and eager for the increased fitness, strength and mobility.
So stay tuned because we’re taking it to the next level…
