Plyocide Can Mean Plyopuke

I woke up a bit tired. Nothing new, however I pushed on with the workout. I got through it without issue. I did find out that Plyocide can mean Plyopuke. Which is what happened about 30 minutes after the workout.

I was rocking it all the way through. Keepin up. No pauses. Even added an extra rep here and there. Felt strong despite how much I was sweating. Great workout.

It wasn’t until after I had showered and got dressed to eat breakfast that I suddenly felt uneasy. Like intuition or something. I made my way to praying to the porcelain god. Ick. Once I did that I felt right as rain again.

That means I made a great breakfast and had a shakeology. Booyah. From there it was a mellow day of music writing and mixing. So remember that plyocide can mean Plyopuke. It’s still a great workout regardless.

Chest Back And Balance Oh My

Another week in phase two has begun. The quest for the flattening belly is nearing completion, but there is work to be done. For today it was chest back and balance oh my. Oh and I mustn’t forget abs too.

I felt better about today’s workout than I did after doing it a week ago. I did get more reps this time around. That’s a good thing. But I did find that my arms were starting to give out at points in the workout. A little concerning. I didn’t bonk.

It was the pull-ups especially wide arm ones where I had the most trouble. As the workout progressed I had to start modifying them. I know it’s because I’ve been pushing myself hard last week with the arm workouts. I’m likely still catching up to the efforts I’ve given them and they want rest.

The ab portion is starting to get a bit easier than it should. My solution is adding additional reps. Which I started today. Hopefully this will accelerate my goal. Not sure I’ll hit it by the end of the week, but I’m making the effort.

I’m off to have my breaky and a Shakeology. Let me know when you’re hitting up the phase two workout that makes you say chest back and balance oh my. If you’re not working out, it’s time to join me! Take a fitness challenge!

Base Back And Abs Mastered

Missed yesterday’s Yoga workout due to feeling a bit nauseated. Not a great idea to be pushing fitness when you’re feeling like it’s time to hurl. Oh well. Today on the other hand found me feeling much better. So much so that I feel like I have base back and abs mastered.

At least mostly mastered. Unlike the other workouts in this phase two, I was doing more reps all the way through. If I didn’t do more, I was at least matching my last time through.

This means more pull-ups and chin-ups. Higher weights on the plyo lunge press. Push, push, push. I got through it without pausing. Major bonus.

Following the ab portion I kinda felt warm in the midriff. Can’t say that I recall that feeling before. The nice thing is, in this week, I’ve seen yet another change in the lowest portion of my belly 6. Meaning, I can see it flattening out. I’m hoping it will only take another week. Pictures will following when the goal is hit.

Once that goal is reached, then it becomes more about maintenance for me. I’m not looking to be super bulky or over done muscly. I prefer cut over size and endurance over short bursts. It’s been an amazing year and a half journey to reach this summit. Very exciting.

Now that I’ve got my base back and abs mastered, it’s time for a fun breakfast, a Shakeology and a moment in the studio for recording. Get yourself in shape. Join me for a fitness challenge and start your journey to being in better shape. You’ll be happy you did.

Pushing Shoulders Arms And Abs Hard

One thing that I’m sure no one likes doing is waking up sore. Especially when you didn’t sleep well. That’s my case for last night and this morning. Only six hours of sleep and woke up sore in the calves. Despite that, I began my day by pushing shoulders arms and abs hard. Better than I did it last time through phase two.

That’s were getting over the mental hump is key. You have to know when it’s just soreness and not injury. If it’s just soreness, it’s a matter of getting the movement going. Cause once it goes, it’s all good.

For me this time through I was able to increase weight and maintain reps. That’s a big step forward. The better thing was, I felt great after getting done. Super bonus is, I’m not feeling sore anymore after the workout. I may think different tomorrow, but I’ll enjoy it today.

Time to throw down a three egg shrimp and veggie omelet for breakfast, sided with a Shakeology. My treat for kicking a serious workout of pushing shoulders arms and abs hard. What are you doing for yourself as a workout today?

Plyocide Comes Back

Rolling into day two of my phase two redux. Today Plyocide comes back. I don’t remember it being this hard at the end of the last time I did phase two a little over a month ago.

I had to pause a few times between sets in order to catch my breath. I was lacking some energy by the time I got 2/3 through the workout. I stuck with it and pushed through.

The best thing is, I didn’t hurl. I also didn’t bonk, though there were moments when I thought I would.

It’s a hell of a workout and despite my shirt making reference to insanity (actually it’s referencing my CD), I’m not sure I could, or would even want to, do the Insanity workout. Instead I’ll stick with things using weight and my extra outdoor activities. Seems more appropriate for me.

Time to whip up some Shakeology, eat a killer breakfast and get on with my musical day. Make sure you’re working out. If not with beachbody at least doing something. I would hope seeing plyocide comes back for as a reason for yourself to get into better shape.
