Did my assessment, now lets see where all that work got me.
Fitness Progress Report:
Functional: Increases across the board.
- 11 more pushups than before, a total of 31. Not to my goal, but closer.
- 31 more squats(below parallel). 61. Goal accomplished.
- 5 more dive bombers. Total of 19. Goal accomplished.
- 30 seconds longer holding pushup position(plank) than 6 weeks back. 90 seconds. 31 short of my goal.
Either way, I’m stronger. Go Kettlebells! With some calisthenics for spice. The interesting part is the size gains in the 6 weeks. With workouts that last around 15 minutes.
I added 1/4 inch to my chest, and 3/4 inch to shoulders. I lost a 1/2 inch to my waist, thighs, and 1/4 inch off neck and forearms. Biceps and calves remained the same.
Lost 1.87lbs of body fat or down to 12.17%.
How I got there
Exercise is only part of it, diet is most of it. And I average 158 grams of protein a day or 30% of my diet. My carbohydrate intake is 98.5 grams average or 19%. Now for those who follow conventional wisdom this next stat will get your attention…117.9 grams of fat a day. That’s 51% of my diet!
And I only weigh 141.4 lbs. That’s from eating Primal. For more on primal go here.
Now lets see where I’m at in 6 weeks doing the RKC Rite of Passage of Cleans, Presses, Swings and Snatches with my kettlebell. A full time diet of iron should be astounding.
