New Workout Program & TT Abs DVD contest

New workout program starts this week...with a weird twist.

I'll actually be rotating through 8 workouts, not 4, but I'm still doing 4 workouts per week.

Here's how it will work over a regular 2 week period.

Day 1 - Weight workout A - squats emphasis
Day 2 - Weight workout B - Bench press/upper body
Day 3 - Off
Day 4 - Bodyweight workout C - lower body
Day 5 - Bodyweight workout D - upper body
Day 6 - Off
Day 7 - Off
Day 8 - Bodyweight workout A - lower body
Day 9 - Bodyweight workout B - upper body
Day 10 - Off
Day 11 - Weight workout C - Deadlift emphasis
Day 12 - Weight workout D - Military press/upper body
Day 13 - Off
Day 14 - Off

Trying to get all of the good from heavy weights without the negatives (overuse on the low back and rotator cuff) while mixing in bodyweight recovery.

Who knows, it could be good or completely stupid. I shall see.

Today's workout:

Extensive Warm-up

1) Max Jumps - hitting record levels each week

2) Wide-stance Squats - 3x5

3A) RDL - 3x8
3B) Hanging Ab Pikes (ankle to bar) - 3xMax

4) Back Extension

Then I went to Mabel's Bakery and bought Pumpkin Seed bread, vegetarian lasagna, and their Lentil "meatloaf". So much good stuff there...


Also in the nutrition category, over on Facebook we are having a great discussion on how to eat healthy for cheap:

And now for some abs updates:

First, I wrote an article on:

=> 7 Common Abdominal Exercise Workout Problems

And we're having a contest on the blog where you can win a free copy of the soon-to-be-released TT for Abs DVDs.

There was a funny spelling mistake in one of the entries, where someone wrote they want 2 "lose bally fat". Don't they know only bally the dog can
do that?

Anyways, you can WIN a FREE copy of the TT for Abs DVDs & Simple Nutrition DVD here:

PS - Today's kick-butt mindset tip is...

Remember: After rain comes sun. If you had a bad weekend, bad week, bad month, or heck, even if 2009 was a bad year, things can and will get better. It starts with US and our actions. So write down your goals, make a written plan to achieve them, track your success, and hold yourself accountable. We WILL succeed.
