The Progress

It has been around one month and two weeks since I started to workout regularly. By regularly I mean three to five times a week. I also cut my intake of carbs especially on non-workout days. Plus, I have been drinking lots of soy milk.

My workout is combination of weightlifting and suspension training. I barely do cardio. The most would be 10 minutes on elliptical machine before I lift. But I don’t do it every time.

At this point, there is a noticeable changed in my body. I definitely shredded some amount of body fats. My abs is starting to flatten and my legs are starting to shrink. My arms and chest started to be in shape too but it still depletes so fast before I can work them out again. How do I resolve this?

People I met affirmed how leaner I got. I lost 3lbs but I don’t think that it could be a good metric since I am also trying to gain muscle mass at the same time.

Shoulder & Leg Day – 20140502

Ending the week with some shoulder and leg workouts. These two are my least favorite to work out. I had four workouts for my shoulders and three workouts for my legs. All were done in 12 reps and three sets. One of my leg workouts is the single-legged squats using TRX. I actually wanted to do more leg workouts but the gym was already about to close.

Since it is already late night and I was just few hours away from hitting the sack, I just had sliced apples and oranges with a cup of soy milk for post workout.

Suspension Training 20140425

Today’s training wasn’t really exhausting compared to my previous weight lifting sessions. I went through a full body suspension training. I thought it would be really exhausting but maybe my trainer just did not want to shock my body with hardcore suspension workouts.

The Workout

20140425 Warm-up

As usual, I started by doing 10-minute cardio on elliptical bike to warm-up. The workout was pretty simple. It requires TRX or RIP60. These are the widely known suspension workout gear brands. Each workout was done for a minute followed by thirty seconds or a minute of rest.

If I remember it right, there were at least a couple of workouts per body part.

Post-Workout Meal

I was advised by my trainer to consume more vegetables to flatten my abdomen. With that advice, I munched on some fruits and veggie mix that I bought in a nearby convenient store. I just coupled it with my favorite soya milk drink, Vitamilk.
