Strength Training Update… Going Good!

Strength Training Update… Going Good!

I met with my personal trainer today and although my body fat percentage didn't go down much in two weeks, my weight did come down a few pounds. It's going to take some time to build muscle and lose the excess skin, but it's slowly getting there.

One thing he suggested last week is to continue doing the vegan challenge for a week each month. As you might recall, I did my first vegan challenge a few weeks ago. He felt that since I did so well with it that I should keep it going. This way, I can keep away from animal and dairy products for a week and can resume the Greek Yogurt and turkey during the other weeks. I'll try it for a while to see how I like it. The next time I plan to go vegan will be sometime in April. You really need to plan your meals as a vegan. The reason is you need to make sure you're getting enough protein and nutrients in your diet.

During the session today, I learned some new strength exercises. He had me doing pull ups, push ups, leg extension, leg press, inverted row, etc. It's not easy but the results will be worth it! Now he has me working certain muscle groups one day and the other muscle groups the following day. The other sessions had me doing more of a circuit type training, where I would work all muscle groups and rest a day. It'll take some getting used to the new workout, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Once again, my trainer told me not to focus on my weight, as it's all about body fat percentage now. He said I probably need a percentage of around 13 to reach my goal of improving my abs. I have a way to go as I'm around 19 or 20. I'm working hard so I know I'll get there eventually. I'll keep eating the right foods, especially the protein rich foods and keep doing the exercises.
