Circuit Training………….I’m on it!

Hello there!!!! I have been doing really well this week (yahoo!), diet has been ok not great but not bad either (80/20 rule). I gave circuit training a try and I am loving it! I’m going to do this for the next few weeks until I drop a few more pounds. I actually don’t know how much I weight these days because I decided to stay off the scale a few weeks to get a good idea of how the circuit training is working for me. I can tell you one thing my size 36 pants are fitting very loosely, I had to wear a belt today (YES!). I’m starting to get back in my “I’m a machine mode,” and I have really been kicking it up a notch. Next week I’m going to get some boxing gloves (my daughter lost my last set) and incorporate a heavy bag routine. If you haven’t started you should today it only takes one push-up, one salad, one second to educate yourself! You can do it!

Here is a routine of mine:

 

Incline Pectoral flies (dumbbells)

Squats

Dumbbell Curls

Sit-ups

Seat Dips

Clean & Jerk

Calf Raises

I do 3 sets of 12 with only a 45 second rest between of each exercise. So basically I do a set of squats within 45 seconds I’m on curls, 45 second next exercise etc….

Quick Weight Loss

Hey Guy and Girls out there in blogerville, today I want to talk about quick weight loss. Really what I mean is you weight-loss will NOT be quick, I repeat this will take some time. I started last year and I lost weight really fast, I did about 100 pounds in about 10 months. Fast right, yeah I agree but my body is not were I want it to be and it might take years for me to reach the body I want. You see the initial weight loss is only have the battle the next half is training your body to do what it hasn’t in years “Build Muscle.” I still have about 18 percent body fat but I’m making the right training choices and the body is also starting to show the effect of my training. Another thing that we all must remember is that each of us is different and what might work well for one might not work well for someone else. A good example of this is me and my business partner. I got the guy started about 6 months ago and told what he needed to be doing, well he listened to a degree but was adamant about lifting weights. I tried talking him out of it thinking it would only hinder his progress but he wouldn’t listen. Well I hadn’t seen him in about 2 months so we hooked up yesterday to workout and dude was ripped! Don’t get me wrong he still has weight to drop but the weight is much firmer and looks much better. That just goes to show different stroke for different folks. Listen to the blog people but remember each of us is different and what might work for me might not work for you.

The Scale Don’t Lie…………..I’m Back!

What up my people! I have had the most wonderful vacation and I am now back to the real deal Holyfield! I ate like I wanted to fried conch, gyros, ribs, and whatever else I could think of. I did not go to the gym, heck I still haven’t been to the gym. I have enjoyed myself so much I just knew when I got home I was going to weight 210 – 215 from the 190 – 195 I been carrying around lately. Well guess what when I weighted myself this morning I was 197. I only gain two pounds, that had me wondering if I had been working out would I have gained any weight at all? I also wondered why when I’m home and I have one bad day I seem to gain weight instantly, but when I’m out of town and I have a bad week I barley gain anything. The only thing I could think of is that when in Miami I am always on the go and as such I probably burn more calories in a typical day than when I am at home, but what about the lack of exercise? I don’t know but why look a gift horse in the mouth. I’ll be starting fresh this week new plan, with some new ideas that I will be sharing with you. I also have some guess authors coming in the next few weeks……be on the lookout!

Miami Here I Come…….. Miami, Aqui Vengo!

What up fam! I have been chronicling my ups and downs this summer (still at 192) and I have come to one conclusion, it is time for a vacation. Yep, a vacation, I haven’t been on a vacation in over 3 years and I think it is time I get one. Now as far as my program goes I had a really good week last week. I added some yoga to my program and got in about three, 30 minute sessions in last week. I had two aerobic (bodies by Gilad) sessions this week in addition to the yoga. I normally do 15 minute session on the elliptical before I hit the free weights, I bumped that up to 25 minutes and I increased the level from 10 to 12 as well. I had a really good week eating wise too. I still had my peanut butter snack on Tuesday and Thursday but other than that I didn’t do to bad. Now what really concerns me is my trip to Miami (I love my moms cooking, the Cuban food, and the seafood there). I know that I am not going to be watching what I eat to closely so my plan is to make sure I at least workout everyday I’m there. I got a few family members who use to play professional football so I’m going to workout with them and hopefully I’ll learn some new stuff that can improve my routine. I have already found a few LA fitness gym near my moms house. I am also going to the Dolphin preseason game on Monday (go FINS!) so I plan on having an active great time. I will be blogging from Miami so I’ll keep ya’ll posted! Summer is almost over, I’ll be challenging my self to drop 20 pounds by Christmas when I get back, STAY TUNED THIS WILL GET EXCITING!!!!!

Great Workout Week!

What up fam! I decided to go back to the basics for a while since I had been struggling lately. I stop jumping on the scale this week (remember I had ballooned up to 205 in the last two weeks) and just watched what I ate without doing thinking. Now I went to the gym everyday and did a little yoga and just enjoyed the whole process this week. I jumped on the scale today and I was down to 192 (my weight does moves between 195 and 190) not bad, not bad at all. I’m trying to get back into my routine and I think that the end of summer will help me do this. I will also be changing the site soon and adding some new authors to the site as well. Stick with me, I will get it back going!

So Sweet….. Addicted to the treats!!!

O.K. there I said it “I am addicted to sweets,” I found my self sitting in my son’s bedroom with a half-full bag of yogurt covered raisins. As I munched on hand full after hand full of raisins I began to understand why I was and will always be fat! Now don’t get me wrong I will not always be fat physically but I will always deal with the mental aspect of being fat. So will you if you lose the weight so accept it now as hard as it is to lose the weight it is harder to keep it off. I’ll repeat it is harder to keep the weight off, now the good thing is once you get down you’ll be able to get it off easier because you will know how but we don’t even want to start the yo-yo dieting thing. Now I’ll tell you guys because I stay honest on this site because the people that came here are my support and I want them to understand what is going on. I gain 9 pounds in the last 3 weeks, right now I am at 199/200, horrible right? Well yes and no I had been struggling with what I should be doing which programs I should be incorporating and a whole bunch of other stuff. Well out the window with all of that junk, I’m going back to my body weight exercises and I’m going to do weights to. I’m going to train as hard as I have in the past, if I gain muscle great if I don’t that is good too. The bottom line is too get lean and to continue to do the things that I enjoyed during my weight-loss. Basically I’m going back to having fun, I’m not monitoring my protein intake any more, I’m not drinking a bunch of shakes that add to calorie intake, nope not going to do it. Oh another thing if you gain 10 pounds you can both see it in the mirror and feel it when you exercise, I suggest when you guy drop the weight you still keep an eye on the scale, it is better to lose 10 pounds than to have to lose 40. I’m feeling good getting back into the grove, keep supporting me I appreciate you all.
