Man, I love this workout. I wish it was part of the regular rotation and not just utilized during the rest week! At one point towards the end you do these things called "Steamboats". Basically, you put your hands behind your neck and flare out your elbows. Then you bring your left knee up to your right elbow and the switch and you do this for 50 reps on each side (100 total). It isn't the hardest move ever but for some reason I literally sweat like crazy on this one .... ??
As for the nutrition part of the diet I am still in Phase Two of the program with the breakdown of 40% carbs/40% protein/20% fat based on 2500-2700 calories per day. I know it seems like a lot but it really adds up quickly if you do it right. For example: This morning I had a Whole Wheat English Muffin (120 cals) with Peanut Butter (2 teaspoons - 220 cals), 4 turkey sausage patties (240 cals) and a 8oz glass of skim milk (100 cals). Total calories - 680 for breakfast! I had a protein bar for both my midmorning and midday snack (an a banana) and a large turkey sandwich with lowfat mozzarella cheese on whole wheat toast. That was about another 1000 calories. I had a recovery drink after my workout (220 cals) and I am having lean beef kabobs with some veggies for dinner (800 cals). Total for the day: 2700 calories!
Tomorrow is my favorite Kenpo X workout and I am also just 8 days away from posting my 60 day pics! I am pretty happy with the results and I feel like my stomach and love handles have shown real improvement since the 30 day pics. I will have to BRING IT extra hard the next 8 days to make sure the pics look good! Until tomorrow....
