The beginning of Week 3 is upon us already—can you believe it? This means it's weigh-in day again. I'm down from 222 pounds to 217.8 pounds. That's a solid drop in weight, and I've also built quality muscle. I can see in the mirror that my body is evolving before my eyes. You should be seeing similar changes to your physique. When you're weighing in, always be sure to use the same scale on the same surface so that there's no variable. Scale weight isn't the only indicator of progress, but it's always good to know where you stand.

Today, we have a special guest training with us: CEO of GASP clothing and a very good friend of mine, Michael Johansson. It's that time again for legs, calves, and lower abs.
