90 Day Challenge: Muscle Mass

Yesterday was day 77 of my 90 day challenge! It flew by so fast, that I forgot to write my weekly post! (Whoops!! Sorry about that!)

With only 13 days left until the end of my 90 day challenge, I’ve switched things up a little. I’m putting a little more focus on losing those extra bits of fat around my stomach. Unfortunately, changing my diet at the last minute has led me to lose a little bit of muscle mass (comparing to last weeks photos) or more likely shed some of the water I was retaining in my muscle that made me look bigger than I really am.

But, all is not lost.

My goal for this challenge was to be in the best shape of my life by my 28th birthday (September 8th) To me, being big and bulky isn’t the definition of being in great shape. Being in great shape is not just about looking good, but feeling great when I wake up in the morning, when I’m working out and when I’m just relaxing with friends and family. This means I need to be well conditioned to handle high intensity training like we always do at Blitz.

Burning fat and building muscle in these high intensity interval training sessions has given me completely different results and ‘that feeling’ that I don’t believe is possible at a regular gym. That’s not even mentioning how effective and helpful it’s been to have Chris there coaching me along, changing up my routine at the right times and making sure I’m staying focused on my goal.

For those of you that have trained with Chris, you know exactly what I’m talking about. ( Even if at the time you hate him for making you push so hard. In the end, he’s your best friend and you couldn’t thank him enough!)

This past week of changes has been hard. From the diet to the routines, we’ve really stepped it up and I’m starting to get really excited to see the end result! 13 days and counting!!!

  1. Congrats Paul! Keep up the great work!

  2. Way to go Paul! You can definitely see that you hard work is paying off – how many hours do you think on average you’ve put in per week over the 77 days? I have loved reading the challenge blog!

    • Thanks Miranda!
      I’d say that the amount of time I work out per week has varied from when I first started to now. When I started I was really only doing about 4 days a week and an hour of activity on those days. Now, I’m closer to the 7-10 hours of activity a week. However, that includes riding my bike, swimming and working out.

      If anything, I’ve found being physically active to become a small addiction. I love it. Everything about it makes me a happier person.
