Destination Abs: The Training Program
Another two weeks down. This sh*t is getting easy folks. I could follow Leigh’s nutritional guidelines forever. I even had a couple beers on Friday and I am still looking leaner. Guys, this is cool. I feel like there is actually some light at the end of the tunnel and definitive abs will be visible by the end of summer. Hell yes. I know I am kind of incoherent right now, but it is because this has been a long ass journey, 149 days so far since we began.
In terms of training (as I promised last week) the workouts that I have designed have consisted of 4 main exercises with 2-3 accessory exercises at the end of the workout. Workouts last no more than 60 minutes (excluding warm-up). For example, on the back/bi day my training will look something like this:
- A) Weighted Chin-Ups
- B) Chest Supported Row
- C) Lat Pull Down
- D) Face Pulls
- E) Reverse EZ bar Curls
- F) Cable Hammer Curls
I have found T-nation’s, “Best of” series to be very helpful when needing to mix things up. This was the case especially on my arms/abs/refeed day. Here are the links to the articles:
Down the line Leigh and I will be discussing the training more and how it changed throughout the different phases of the program. If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments section and I will answer them.
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.
