It’s been 6 weeks since I started my 2012 fat loss challenge.
My weight reading on Saturday 6th May 2012 was 83.1kg, compared with 84.4kg two weeks ago. That’s a 1.3kg (2.9lb loss) which I’m very happy about.
My clothes are looser and I’m beginning to get back some of the definition I achieved in my 2011 fat loss challenge.
Training wise, I’ve been following a Turbulence Training routine which consists of three 40 minute gym sessions (20 minutes strength training, 20 minute bicycle interval sprints).
On ‘off-days’ I’ve been doing 30 minutes body weight circuits. I’ve particularly enjoyed using ViPR, a piece of fitness equipment that is essentially a rubber tube with hand holds. Looks basic, but it’s kicking my butt. If you get a change to play with one I suggest you do.
Here’s a quick snapshot of the kind of functional moves you can do.
