After getting some advice from my brother about Creatine last night. I did some research online and found out that most body builders are getting great results with Creatine. So today I went to the local supplements store and picked up some Purple-K Creatine and a bottle of AllMax Glutamine to help in muscle recovery after my workout.
I’ll try this stuff for a few weeks and then I’ll post a review on my results.
After I completed my 30 day workout challenge I lost about 15lbs and felt better but after getting to this point I didn’t really have another hard set goal so I just kept on workout out but soon reached a stand still. I began missing workouts and eating some crappy foods again but soon realized I needed another goal and either more weights or another system to help me get to the next level.
I started looking at heavier dumbbells, resistance bands and other forms of training like home workout routines. I watched the first video of P90 but this system did not resonate properly with me so I quickly dropped it and and was on the lookout for something else. My brother Paul and I were potentially looking at joining a gym but after thinking about it with the cost of gym membership, gas and the hassle of going to the gym I quickly gave up on that idea and knew it would have to be something I can do at home anytime I wanted.
The next day I picked up some pushup bars from a local store to help me with my wrists while doing pushups but after trying those out an idea dawned on me. Why not get a bench for bench press and use that to build my muscles so I started looking and asking people. Well 24 hours later I manifested this Weider Universal Gym and now I’m ready to hit the next level.
My next goal is to drop down to 200lbs and then start working to reduce by body Fat% below 15%
Check out the picture and video of my Weider 8530 universal home gym below.
This past week my weight jumped to 223lbs which is 1 lbs more then last Monday but I did go out a few times last week and ate some not so good food, and I only did a half day Isagenix Cleanse on Sunday. The other half of the day I broke down and started eating and took down way to many calories. Last week brought less then expected results but it was a great week to learn some lessens on how to maintain my focus on my workout challenge and eat better.
Today is a great day to reboot and keep going, there is not point to over think the past but to push forward into the future.
It’s workout day 19 today and after instating the Isagenix Cleanse and keeping the workouts going I lost 7lbs in the last week and gained muscle. It’s not easy keeping consistent on my work outs every week but I’m working really hard to keep my program in line. 6 Days of working out and 1 day of rest is going great and I only have 9 days left in the 30 day challenge. After that I might be doing something else as a workout routine but not sure yet but I am looking at different options.
Today I also added some more weights on my workout and also moved from knee pushups to regular pushups which I did 25 total in 1 minute. when I started the workout challenge 3 weeks ago I couldn’t even do 1 pushup so this is definitely a difference.
My main goal in the beginning was to get active and work in my joints and muscles slowly to make sure I didn’t hurt or pull anything. Buy now just 3 weeks of workout out I can already tell the difference and feel much better.
