Destination Abs: Week 4 (End of Phase One)

the-fat-loss-troubleshootBy: Kevin Larrabee, CSCS

Whew…There goes four weeks of intense fat-loss. This was easily the most drastic transformation my body has made since I dropped the initial 35 pounds when I was in high school. Was it as big of a number in terms of pounds? No. But the transformation in the mirror was pretty major. Wow, I can’t believe I made it four weeks. I think the biggest supporting factor was posting on each week and receiving comments from you and having that responsibility to not disappoint each week.

Don’t forget that Leigh and I are recording a special podcast this week to discuss the diet and training and answer any questions that you have about the process. Please send questions with the contact page.

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.

Now time for the pictures:

First up is Front Flexed with Day 1, Day 21, and Day 28


Now for Side. Again, Day 1, Day 21, and Day 28


Finally Back, Day 1 then Day 28


Phase two began today with Chest/Tris. Yeah, I know, it goes against everything I believe in but I need to address some lagging body parts. Strength can sit on the back burner for a bit.

    Kevin, I hope that now you are doing a body part based routine, you may change your views about training from black and white upper/lower splits of full body routines only to realising that every system has its place, its just a matter of implementing it correctly, for the correct person at the correct time. I like your show but your views on training always seemed a little polarised, when the best in the business generally seem to have open minds.
