I’m nervous… excited too but more nervous than excited. It’s the day before my personal fitness schedule : Goya90 Days Fat to Fit
The challenge is a daunting one. It isn’t so much the workouts itself, but the anticipation of a mental battle to keeping motivated throughout these 90 days.
I’m sure I shouldn’t be beating myself with self-doubt and that I should trust my body to get into the new routines comfortably… eventually.
These few days leading up to it, I’ve also been doing some rounds and testing of the new workout routines to prepare for it. So far so good as long as I don’t push myself too hard right out from the start. This will be something that I will have to work in comfortably.
Just now also I did some measurements. These I will be also doing weekly to track my progress. Things such as weight and size as well as basic calculations of Body Fat % as well as BMI.
I shall spare the rest of the info, but I will be starting this programme, weighing in at 113kg… (sad, huh… this is how much I have let myself to put on till now.. 🙁 …)
I have a complete Excel sheet just for keeping records of my progress.
Ok, keeping my fingers crossed. It’s 11pm and I’m getting to bed for my first HIIT workout training tomorrow.
As fitness was always my primary goal, I couldn’t help to sometimes look at the potential weight loss from my exercises. And after much reading and researching, the clear winner for a fast track fitness programme are good sets of circuit training – the idea is to constantly keep the different muscle in your body activated and the elevated heart-rate results in a good cardio workout.
Although I still need to keep up with my cycling and running programmes to ensure that my muscles for those are kept in good condition, I will see results faster if I keep a frequent schedule of circuit training.
One thing great about circuits is that, you get to mix it up to keep your workouts interesting. Right now, I’m still quite new at it but I’m going to have to keep a couple of circuit sets in my pocket first to kick off the whole routine.
Here’s a set which I have started out with thanks to Jordan Yeoh’s circuit training video tutorial. (Jordan’s a fitness traiinng and a body-building Guru whom I’ve been following on his blog and FB Page) It certainly helps to get the best ideas from successful fitness experts.
