My nutrition has been garbage for the last two days, to the point where I didn’t even bother outlining it on here. However, as of today I bounced right back and ate all but one serving of protein.
A few days ago, I finished my first round of 10 Minute Trainer. I was doing only 10 minutes per day. The weird thing about it was that, while I didn’t feel it taxed me as much as I needed, there were times during the workouts where my muscles were so sore that I had to take a break. Bizarre how that happens.
Today I started doing 20 minutes per day. The first two workouts on the schedule were Upper Body and Core Cardio. Things went pretty well. During Upper Body I felt my muscles getting sore, but I pushed through and didn’t have to take too many breaks.
I weighed myself the day after I finished my first round, and I was not happy to discover I had somehow gone UP two pounds. My girlfriend thinks it must be because I put on muscle, but I am not sure if 10 minutes per day would be enough to gain 2 pounds of muscle. Some people have told me that I should pay attention more to my measurements than the scale. I’m not sure I agree with that either. However, I am going to give it a shot. I already put it on my Google Calendar to remind myself to take measurements the day after I finish this program.
Up next, I am going to finally dive into 22 Minutes Hard Corps. It may be only 2 extra minutes per day, but it looks like the intensity is really cranked up SEVERAL notches. Then after that, I will be jumping to 30 minutes per day with a P90X 3/Insanity Max 30 hybrid.
