I started my day with a great Max-OT cardio session. I literally ran like the wind, coming in at 1.78 miles and a new personal best! I went to the gym with a completely new attitude. There is no saving anything for later when it comes to cardio. I am approaching cardio the way I approach my weight lifting–I leave it all there, taking nothing with me when it is done. Why waste my time on a machine if I'm not going to maximize my time? Nope–no more saving it for later.
I finished off 2 weeks of Flatten Your Abs and now I go into the Level 1 training 4 days a week. I'm looking forward to the changes in my abs training.
As you know, I'm planning some future articles and I've decided I'm going to do a review of Marc David's No Bull Bodybuilding and David Grisaffi's Flatten Your Abs. I will give you all a no bull review of both books.
Another plan I have is to do a review of various body building web sites. After reviewing a site I will add it to a list of links on the blog.
I am currently working on my main website. It will host the eBook when it is released.
In the afternoon I did the HIIT session I mentioned yesterday. I really didn't find it to be that difficult. I am going to give it another shot on a different treadmill to see if that makes a difference. At the same time, I burned alot of fat.
I realized today that I do not utilize my heart rate monitor to the fullest. One thing I plan to add to my tracking is the numbers I can get out of my heart rate monitor.
