May 7 - Week 12 - M, W, F (3x per week)




May 7. 2007, Week 12 - M, W, F (3x per week)
Workout Routine:

About a week ago, I got this email below from a guy.

Arnel:

Remember what got you OUT of shape to begin with:  helping so many people that you ended-up neglected yourself!

There will never be enough hours in the day to help everyone and if you over-extend yourself then you?l be no good to anyone (especially yourself)!

I realize you?e committed to people and are ?ooked solid; however, it? time to carve out a couple of extra hours for yourself (and family?) each day.  You will simply need to raise your hourly fee and spread the 2-hours of ?ost income among your other clients so that you still earn the same amount.

You must do this now.  If not, you will burn out and neglect your own health.

Good luck, and keep posting pics whenever you can.  Your progress is amazing!  I wish I had ripped muscles like you especially your arms-:)

I do not know who he is but he is absolutely right.  I am repeating what got me out of shape to begin with.  I had skipped some of my workout sessions due to my extremely busy schedule. 

But since reading his email, I have been trying to modify my schedule to fit my ideal schedule.  I hired a trainer to help me with my fitness boot camp.  I delegate some of my work to my new assistant (my girlfriend) and reduced my training sessions. 

For the first time in a long time, I feel like I am begging to get my life back again.  I am even going away this weekend to the shore just to relax and enjoy myself with my girlfriend.  

I don? know who wrote that but I would like to publicly thank you.  My future business plans have now changed so that my business will soon be able to support my ideal lifestyle rather than my life supporting my business. 

Anyway?.

I have some news for you      

In order for me to serve you better, I am adding a discussion forum where you can ask me questions in regards to fitness and to also provide you a community so that you can meet new people with similar goals.  Let? help each other out.  That is coming soon, so stay tuned.

Other news:

I am also adding another feature for my loyal members so that you can add your own workout video to share with everyone.  If you would like to share your workout video with us, please do so at http://www.fitnesstvguide.com.  It is the YouTube of fitness.

RESISTANCE TRAINING

Workout Routine: Week #12 May 7th Instructions:

All exercises are done in a superset between upper body and lower body.
For example, pushups with hands on the ball (with bands to add resistance)
are supersetted with a jump squat with weights. Do NOT rest within the
superset, but rest 30 seconds after the lower body before repeating the
superset again. Repeat for a total of 2-4 rounds total.  Proceed to the next
superset. 

Aim for lower reps: 6-10 reps
Aim for 2-4 rounds for each superset
Again, take no more than a 30 second rest in between. 

Here is the routine for the week: 
Make sure to watch the video several times and observe my form

A2: Jump Squat with weights
*Aim for 3-4 rounds

B1: Spiderman pushups with bands

The Best Home Gym You Will Ever Own


Bodylastics is a complete home gym
system. We designed this system in 1996 to outperform the most popular and expensive large bulky home gyms.

Smoothest Resistance
When we were first developing the Bodylastics home gym system, we searched for the smoothest source of resistance on the planet. Well, we found it - Elastic tubing. Not only is elastic tubing super smooth when you pull and push it, but it is incredibly light and flexible. That means it is easy to store - no extra room needed! Once we decided that elastic tubing would be our resistance "engine", we had to design a system that would be able to create several levels of tension. This would enable users of all strength levels to get the best results possible. So, we created the Bodylastics Quick Clip System. Our elastics have clips secured to the ends so that they could be easily attached to handles and ankle straps. This simple yet effective design gives users the ability to generate 15 levels of tension (Basic Tension Set) or even 31 levels of tension (Max Tension set).

Best Gym Exercises and then some!
Every set of Bodylastics comes complete with extra heavy duty components (handles, ankle straps and door anchor). These components used in conjunction with the elastic tubes can recreate all of the exercises from the health club, and some others that even the best machines can't duplicate.
