I would like to restart my diary on this website. I feel as though keeping a training diary on this site will help others see exactly how I incorporate the principles I present on this website into my practical life.

I would also like some feedback from my audience. Feel free to ask me questions about my program and give any suggestions that I can personally employ. Enjoy!

General Notes/Thoughts: Overall a very good week. I have lost a considerable amount of weight, but somewhere along the way I realized how much fun I was having. And so I think I really just got caught up into developing interesting .

I’m sorry I can’t give you guys a proper assessment in terms of my , but the truth is that I really haven’t been measuring my progress that closely. I used to weigh myself and measure myself all the time, but I just got tired of it. I just decided to get in the , consistent workouts without worrying about the results. But maybe that’s what helped.

I’ll be heading off to India in about 2 weeks, so my plan right now is to rachet up the intensity, then chill while in India. I’ll probably still , but I think if I’m going to a wedding I can expect to be eating a lot of bad food.

After I come back, I’ll see which direction I want to take my training.

Specific Notes about Workouts:

Monday – Divebombers are great for shoulders, tris, and chest. KB Snatch is more of a cardio exercise now. Need KBs, or something heavier than 35lbs.

Wednesday – were tough. Front squats are amazing for the legs. Keep doing them. Need to work on pullups strength

Friday – Good shoulder and . Short, difficult, but not that intense. Chinups were ok. Can def add reps to it. Pressing was tough, esp the shoulder press. Check form on push jerk.

Total training time this week: 36:15.07
