Well, today I’ve set myself a challenge. I’ve been working hard at the gym for the past couple of months and I’ve seen some great progress. I’ve been strict with what I’m eating as well and I’m happy that I’ve explored things some more too.
I’ve decided today to follow a regime for the next 90 days (three months) from tomorrow (1 June 2015) as I push forward with the motivation of getting into a shape that I want to be.
If you’ve read my other posts then you know I’m not really interested in being ‘big and bulky’ or looking like I want to compete in some body building competition, it’s been mainly that I want my balls to cool down and to not end up like my head is having a shower when I step out into the warm air when in a moderately warm country (25+ oC).
Here’s to me, and to you because you also matter, heading along this journey and understanding that the path I’m now taking is going to be a continual one and the biggest thing to positively affect my motivation all around.
- Reach 12% body fat (currently 20.3% and was 30.5% 9 months ago)
- Weigh no more than 85kg (currently weigh 103.5kg and was 111.2kg 9 months ago)
- Be able to complete one pullup unassisted (by end of week 4)
- Squat 180kg for 3 sets of 8 and proper technique (end of 12 weeks)
My Week 0 (and day 0) – it’s officially the start. Wahoo! I have a Poliquin bio signature check completes (where 12 different sites on my body are measured for fat and I am weighed), which shows a starting level that I’m comfortable with.
I’ve written on a few different days as I go through the challenge, but I’m confident I won’t be documenting every single day yet I’m going to have a good go – I just don’t want to bore both of us with repeating the same things day after day.
Day 1 – It’s chest and triceps day and I’m feeling tired from yesterday.
Day 2 – Back and biceps and one of my favourtie breakfasts.
