Destination Abs: Day 134 (Picture Update)
It has been a while since I have posted pictures for the Destination Abs project. After taking a few days completely off of training I hit it hard for three days with a refeed and on Monday I went back to the normal schedule of lifting. So just to recap, in this phase the goal is to continue to put on lean muscle while limiting fat gain. The process of doing this is pretty delicate but Leigh has been a great help locking in the calories.
I am still doing body part splits (chest/tris, back/bis, lower body) for my training and although I found the workouts dreadfully boring the first few weeks, I have used the rest time in between sets to do mobility work (what we call active recovery). Pandora on my iPhone has been a nice way to burn time in between sets as well (who thought you could lift to The Beatles and Paramore?). I will be talking more about my training next week including some of my favorite exercises that I have put into the program.
Leigh Peele has put together the nutrition portion of this program and I have constructed the training program. If you haven’t read her book The Fat Loss Troubleshoot, you have no idea what you are missing. Leigh has a no bull shit approach when it comes to this stuff. If you are one of those dieters who has smothered the furnace that is your metabolism, Leigh’s book will do the trick to get that fire stoked.
After seeing the pictures Leigh pointed out the increase in abdominal mass and “line” running from my chest through my abs.
Now here are the pictures:
