Week 3 Results - Daily 100 Burpee's & 200 Situp's Challenge

Its been a good 3rd week so far. I'll say that most days its been really easy to fast until 3pm and only eat during 5 hr window.  Energy level has been really good or better than normal.  I have no idea why I feel so good fasting but it works and its so simple to follow.  Even on the days that I cheat and fall off the wagon and have some bad treats.  Note that if any cheating happens its during my eating window.  No exceptions to that.

3 years skinny and time to build some muscle

Few things to point out, this blog was really just for helping people understand Intermittent Fasting and how easy it is! 

I have lost the weight and need to start a new project, so why not start getting ready for summer by lifting weights and toning up the body!

I kept the gym and cardio in different baskets, fasting Intermittently is hard and not recommend to mix with a major workout routine. Losing weight and keeping it off starts and ends with leaving Intermittent Fasting a program by itself.  

Results to follow  

My next blog will focus on weight training and getting my muscle on! Over the last 3 years I have focused my blog in the direction of losing weight. I have to say that still today after all this time Intermittent Fasting is the best way to knock of the pounds.  I have been totally against the idea that we need to do endless cardio to get my dream weight.

What I hope to prove, no pills, powders, just simple quick workouts to build muscle.  No more than 45min four days of week.  Running 2 to 5 miles weekly.

Goals with building muscle
  • Work to improve my abs ( lots of flabby skin from the weight loss)
  • Focus on improving overall muscle definition  
  • Try to cycle my workouts to the am and pm workouts about 15min to 20min length
  • Prove that short mini whole body workouts are going to work to get in perfect shape
  • Use dumbbells 25lbs and 35lbs ( for whole body workout ) 
  • Stay away from the gym!
  • Don't focus on cardio to achieve reach lean condition 
  • Supplements: No supplements will be taken before, during or after any workout! 
  • Focus will be on allowing the body to act as it should and not need anything but a balanced meal plan with carbs ( bread, tortillas ), chicken breast and tuna for main source of protein.  As always a diet that is focused on macro nutrients is always the plan.
  • Eat about 2000 to 2500 calories on eat days
  • Perform Mini workouts on fasting days and on eat days ( under 45min ) 

Current workout weight - 201 lbs ( Note that my fasting down to only doing two days a week and feeling good at this weight. ) 
Goal - Increase size and strength and hold my summer weight at 185lbs to 190lbs 
Losing sight of my six pack at 201 lbs but this is ok. I feel stronger than ever and looking forward to finding some compromise between fasting every other day and weight training.
