I've been doing heavy resistance training every day. My cardio workouts are three times a week for 40 minutes right now. I'm trying not to miss any workouts. Consistency is the name of the game. I'm still doing the weight training routine I posted in October. I will let you know when I change it up.
June is coming up really fast. I don't have much time left. I will start posing at the end of February. My wife and I are going to Hawaii at the end of January, so I will have to find a health club there. I will try and get a few workouts in. I will let you know what I did for exercises during my vacation in my next update.
My new stats after three months of training are as follows:
- Body fat: 10%
- Weight: 205
- Biceps: 17.5
- Waist: 31
- Quads: 27
Hawaii was a great treat to escape to. I went to a 24-Hour Fitness club a few times while I was there. It wasn't that clean and they charged too much for visitors. After that, I just did push-ups and sit-ups in our hotel room. I did some swimming and hiking. That was good cardio. It's hard to exercise on vacation but with all the good food, I had to do something.
Back to reality, it is time to get back to show preparations. Here is a sample of my workweek. Monday I get up at 4:30, shower, and cook breakfast. Breakfast consists of four eggs without yolks, on slice of toast, and bodybuilder pancakes (see recipe below). After that I'm off to my studio for my 6:00 client. I get my first break at 10:00 am. I blend up a protein shake and eat a Myoplex bar. I'm ready for my 11:00 client. I make it to my next break at 1:00 and I have a chicken breast ready along with a baked red potato and some veggies. I finish up with my last client at 5:30 pm. I have to eat meal replacement bars throughout the rest of the day unless I get a cancellation. I wish I had time for meals but the supplements and bars are a great substitute. Next I begin my workout. I don't get out of my studio until 7:30. It's a long day. I do this every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
I train clients until 8 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Then I get to take care of my wonderful son, Cole. I try and get my workouts done during his nap times. This makes for a very interrupted workout. I usually have to go back to the studio at night when my wife relieves me of childcare duties. I have to start making time for more cardio and posing. My next show is in June and is coming up soon.
