52 Weeks of Fitness: Week 15 Recap

For the year of 2012, I have made a yearlong commitment to better fitness and health that will change my life forever. The way I see it, I've been "talking the talk" for way too long - it's about time I start walking. The plan is to use workouts from The New Rules of Lifting, gradually start eating better, and try out plenty of fun healthy activities along the way. Here's how I fared this week:

Lifting:

This was Week Four of Eight in the New Rules' "Hypertrophy II" Phase. The Hypertrophy point is where muscle-building takes center stage, so I'm getting YOKED. 

Monday was a mixed strength/hypertrophy workout for upper body push movements. I worked out with my friend Alex today, and walked her through my workout. It was a blast getting to teach these movements to another person, and a great workout for the both of us

Wednesday was a pure hypertrophy for the lower body. My grip strength actually kept up this time!

Friday's workout was put off and skipped due to company coming into town. Or at least that's how I'm rationalizing it!

Nutrition:

Nutrition cleaned up a bit, and not a single binge. A pat on the back for me, indeed.

Other Stuff:
I ended up working out with Alex on Monday and Wednesday, and had a GREAT time. I loved teaching her some things, and it's always nice to have company on these workouts. I'm going to try to work out with her more often in the future, to feed my need to teach others and to spur me on to better workouts.

That's all for Week 15, only 37 more to go!
