Day 1 Pics: The Truth Hurts

Day 1 of 84

Status - Round 1: Phase 1: Day 1





Ok, so I am all pumped up on Day 1 of my 12 week/84 day program. This afternoon I completed Phase 1/Day 1 of my program.

Today's workout is called "Fat Loss Circuit Training", its a low-rep heavy weight workout with 40 seconds of intense cardio during "rest periods." Today's session was a real wake-up call, my current fitness level is ordinary with a capital O.

N.B: Phase 1 consists of 5 days of heavy weights, intense cardio and "Low-Carb" eating. I'll fill you in as we go along.

After I finished I came home and decided to face the truth head on...and don't it hurt!

Anyone who has ever done one of these "before and after" transformations already knows what I am going to say next. Yes...I'm talking about the dreaded "before pictures."

There is nothing like seeing your overweight body on film to really give you a kick up the wazoo. I'm here to say that the truth really does hurt. So much so that I thought twice about exposing myself half-naked on this blog with my fat self.

But, in the interests of blogger integrity I have decided to put up the before pics as you can see above. I have used the "Japan Times" newspaper in my photo so there is no confusion - i.e. proof - of my official start date.

Check the photo below for a blown-up pic of the newspaper with the date November 8/2006 clearly shown. For horse racing fans you can see that the picture is the winning Japanese jockey of the Melbourne Cup - Australia's most famous horse race.








Here are the stats of my body composition test taken October 26/2006 by the futuristic "Bod Pod", I'll tell you more about it later.

Total Weight: 84.0 kg/185.1 Pounds (U.S)
Lean Weight: 66.5 kg/146.6 Pounds (U.S)
Fat Weight: 17.4 kg/38.3 Pounds (U.S)
Body Fat % : 20.8%

Also, here are my body measurements taken on October 26/2006.
Bicep: 37.1 cm/14.6 inches
Tricep: 35.2 cm/13.8 inches
Waist: 92 cm/36 inches
Chest: 103 cm/40.5inches

I'm gonna do the Bod Pod again in one month (it ain't cheap you know). I'll keep you posted.

Peace, AJ

Hey there. Your before pics look similar to what I looked like when I started last week, except I have about 25 extra lbs and 5% more body fat.

So hopefully I can end up looking simlar to your after in 90 days ;)

Thanks Nick, from what I have seen of you so far in the "Burn the Fat Inner Circle" I have no doubt that you will get there mate.

Eat Clean,
Shred hard,
Think BIG!

Cheers,

Hey Adam,

I believe that your hard training was superb, but let's face it all you did on the first 84 days was to loose fat, you had already that muscular tone!
