On May 19th another experiment as well as another challenge was undertaken.
To sum them up, I am experimenting and challenging myself to:
a) Develop 6 pack abs in 21 days.
b) Run a sub 7 minute mile.
I developed a plan of attack and this post will show the ‘score’, after week 1.
Here are my nutrient ratios for the last 7 days…. woo HOO!!! :)
How did I do according to my meal plan?
I nailed it!!! Fats, Proteins and Carbs were all solidly as planned.
How did it go according to my exercise plan?
Again… I nailed it! On alternating days I performed:
– Weight Resistance and Intense Cardio, two separate sessions
– Two sessions of Intense Cardio
Note: I did perform according to plan in week one … HOWEVER there is no guarantee the plan will accomplish my goals.
1) 6 Pack Abs – some apparent reduction of body fat … but very slight.
My weight has fluctuated from -0- to 2 lbs lost.
2) 7 Minute Mile: I have attempted to run my fastest mile 3 times. Once after weight resistance training and twice after earlier cardio sesssions. In other words, I was not fully rested. My times were: 8:55 , 8:48 and 8:52
That’s all for now… June 9th is approaching quickly!!!! :)
