Day 29 – Chest, Shoulder & Triceps

Phase 2 has begun!

The workout today has lots of dynamic pushups: clapping, side-walking, balance, one-handed, etc.  They’re hard for me and I’m hoping I will adjust quickly.  To give you an idea, I was doing sets of 11 pushups in the Phase 1 chest workout.  This time I’m putting up, in some cases, only 4 pushups.

So the good news is there’s lots of room for improvement.

The diet remains hard.  It’s always been the most difficult part for me.  I’ve got lots of motivation left, though, so I’ll try to tighten it up.  I’m trying something a little different this phase, so we’ll see how that goes.

Overall, I’m down 3.7lbs and 1.4% bodyfat.  I’ve put on about half a pound of muscle.  Those numbers don’t quite match each other when you take into account my original weight, but they’re trending down and that’s all I care about.  I’m in this for the long haul.
