haven't been on in a while. just dropping a line. not sure that this is the most appropriate place for this post but whatever.
since last posting i have met with a personal trainer twice.
heres where im at.
at the first meeting i did a body fat percentage test (pounds mean nothing to me at this point) and found out that i was 30% fat. wow.
we discussed my goals, and decided what would work best for me, would be to set up a schedule, and work out no less then 4 days a week, preferably 5 days a week.
i also have tried to eliminate all junk foods and soda, (as veganism becomes more mainstream, these vices become more accesible) ive increased my raw fruits and vegetables, and for now, cut back on my protein and carb intake to help me get down to a diserable body fat percentage..
my plan now, is to work out 5 days a week, and get my body fat down to a reasonable level, then start taking in large amounts of proteins, and reduced amounts of carbs to help me increase size and lean muscle mass.
does this seem like a healthy plan?
so, one week into my new schedule my body fat dropped to 23 % allready. which seems like an awful lot, but is very encouraging.
i havent memorized all the muscles yet. so this is my very rough, tentative schedule.
chest, upper arm, forearms, shoulders, upper back.
half hour of cardio followed by,
upper legs, butt, thighs. (legs are hard for me because my knees and ankles are completly destroyed from years of skateboarding. ) i find legs for me, have the longest recovery time as well.
chest, mid back, upper arms.
half hour of cardio.
then, chest, lower back, lower legs.
upper legs, upper arms.
my days of rest are all screwy because im in two different bands, and having two consecutive days off isnt really possible.
does this seem like a reasonable game plan?
hope your all doing well, thanks for all the encouragement.
