It was a tough week last week trying to keep up with the workouts. I’ve been lacking in the sleep department yet again due to a lot of going ons at work, plus my intern job. I’ve been able to squeeze in workout time, but I’m questioning myself, how much more effective would they be if I was getting enough sleep.
I’ve been pumping iron while on Purple K and a new protein shake that I’ve been trying. Fat loss has been quite significant and so has the increase in lean muscle mass. I haven’t been gaining much muscle mass, but the lean muscle underneath is growing to a good size and is hardening out quite well if I may say so myself.
Also been working on my abdominals last week. I’ve been reading through articles about how a good set of abs starts with a good core, and abs develop naturally when doing full body workouts targeting your core. If done right you don’t have to do situps to get a six pack. But then why do so many men and women with these great washboard stomachs claim to do X amount of crunches and situps a day?
More research to follow, but will continue working on them with a mix of core excercises and ab workouts. Also, will continue this week to put more emphasis on the upper body area such as shoulders chest and back.
