I’m still looking for a better program but while I look I’m embarking on this one again.
The problem with this one is the ramp around week 3. Too steep.
I’m doing … okay. I’ve been drinking more water, working out a bit more, and generally watching my food more closely. But there is no silver bullet here.
I’ve ranked a bit lower in that:
Like all Wodify apps this one suffers from a terrible network stack and feels like a web app bolted into native. Terrible app, wish we had something better.
Easier said than done sometimes but this seems true for everyone I know. As soon as you stop exercising, bad things happen. This is one of the reasons that even when I get injured I try to find some other way to stay active.
Never Stop ExercisingIn other words, stay active for life. In a recent paper, both sprinters (aged 20-90 years) and endurance athletes (20-80 years) had far better insulin sensitivity than sedentary controls. Absorb this point: insulin sensitivity didn’t decrease with age in the two active groups. Even the 90-year-old sprinter retained good insulin sensitivity. The sedentary controls? Not so much. That says it all, I think.
So/so day. Water was good. Food was okay. No workout and no mobility.
Good breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Missed on alcohol content ( I blame my colleagues ).
Officially today is the first day of the gym challenge. While I am weighed and scanned (gym has an InBody scanner now, hooray) the kickoff starts today with a baseline workout and then a Q and A session.
Breakfast – good
Lunch – shawarma had pita bread so not good. But fairly light on calories.
Dinner – steak, veggies, some cheese. More wine than my diet would allow on non-Fridays. Small cup of gelato for dessert.
Body: sore from two days of back-intensive workouts. I see a foam roller in my future.
My gym is starting a six week challenge to get fit and lean. I have my starting body composition numbers – goal is set now.
As part of this I’ll be using my blog to keep me honest. If you, my two actual readers, don’t want to see a lot of food and exercise pictures and entries it’s a good time to unfollow for a while.
The goals will include:
Good luck to me.
