I have left out the leg work outs and any cardio type work out. I have even delayed the 16 week abs work out by one week. I did this because I hurt my Plantar Fascia in my right foot running 10 miles last Saturday. It was a great run but I don't know if I have ever run that far and I paid for it. I laid off the cardio because I have a half marathon to run on the 24th and I can't run it hurt. If I get hurt running it so be it but until then I have to heal.
I did do the upper body resistance workouts. I just mixed up some of the upper body exercises from the previous weeks and did those.
I am struggling with my diet. I have been off for of work for the past 15 days and it makes it harder to keep a good diet. I am going on a regular schedule in a few days and diet will be one of my focus areas. I think once my diet gets lined out the gains will come faster.
I am updating my pictures again today. I am giving a different shot each week just to mix things up. When I get to my final goal I will post all of the pics on here.
As a side note, one of the objectives that I had for this blog I have fulfilled. A ew of my friends that have started this work out. They all thought what I did. "This doesn't look to bad". I have to tell you the 16 week work out is killer. When you get done with the first workout you are shaking like a puppy trying to pass a peach seed.
Although I have not done any cardio and have not held strictly to my diet I didn't gain a pound.
I weighed this morning and I weighed 249.6. This is the same thing that I weighed 2 weeks ago.
Here are my before and after pics. ( just to note all of the before pictures are of my first day)
