TRX 40/40 Challenge – Day 2

1 Oct


Today was my rest day but decided to do some light stretching to relieve some of the tightness from yesterday’s 5K. I also did my second TRX 40/40 test this week. Today I did better than yesterday and I’ll take that.

TRX Atomic Push-ups: 20
TRX Low Rows: 26


TRX Tactical Force 12- Week Condition Program: DONE

12 Jul


Another workout program in the books! First my second round of Insanity and now my second round of TRX Tactical Force Conditioning Program this year. I finished up the last week by working out 5 days in a row which is a first for me. I havn’t been feeling a bit tired from not having a day of rest but I can tell with the right diet, my body got use to it.

I started the TRX program on April 23rd, 2013 and finished today, July 12, 2013. I’m 5″6′ tall and I started at 183.8 pounds and finished at 180.8 pounds. I went from 21.2% body fat to 20.4% body fat. I also lost an inch around my naval.

There’s still work to be done. I want to get to 170 pounds by the end of August. I’m taking the weekend off and starting up on Monday. I’ll take the weekend to decide what workout I want to do next. Cheers!

TRX Force: Week 12 – Day 3

11 Jul


Just one more workout to go to complete the 12 week program. Tomorrow is a test day, but I’ve been replacing the test days with kettlebell workouts. I’ve done 4 workouts in a row without rest and it’s amazing how having a positive attitude can give you the energy to workout on days you’ll rather be elsewhere.

Today, I did a new TRX movement that I haven’t done before. It’s a TRX hinge (single arm) to a push up with a clock press. As you start to hinge, you can feel your core fire and tighten up. Then as you move into a push up position, your free hand touches the ground and your other hand in the strap does a 3 O’Clock press as you perform the push up. Come back up and do a reverse hinge and complete for 10 reps each arm. Here’s a video without a clock press at the end.

TRX Force: Week 10 – Day 2

26 Jun

ImageToday I woke up to find myself four pounds lighter than the start of the week and it’s only hump day! What’s the secret. Well it’s very simple! Eat less, move more. Since you’re eating less, make those meals count. Get your protein, good low-carbs and plenty of water mixed in with your exercise. Plus add some low impact activity like walking your dog in the evening and you’re on your way to looking like you belong on TV with your own show.
