back workout – That Weight Loss Guy

Another multi day update. I did double workouts for the past two as I was very busy and couldn’t squeeze in my cardio during the day so I did 30 minutes on the bike after each of the past two workouts. It takes a lot longer but it works well! One thing I did is increase the resistance on the bike to make my 30 minutes more effective. I used to set it at 5 for the “effort” setting but set it at 10 for the last two. I burned TWICE as many calories with this simple adjustment. Read more


Another day another workout update. I did miss Saturday due to a Pig Roast. It was fun but beer has a lot of calories so I wrote that day off. I do think it’s important to have a couple days of fun when maintaining, otherwise the cheat desire increases too much. My diet was horrible on the day of the party. I admit it. I ate chips and beer! Not good for keeping weight off but I will make up for it with cardio and always do my workouts. Read more


I did the Spartan Race in Montreal on the weekend and man what a race! It’s advertised as 12 km of race and obstacles but what it ended up being was 15 km through pure mud trails. It took me 3 hours and 55 minutes to finish the course. The winner did in 1 hour and 27 minutes but I still have no clue how that guy went through it that fast. It was about 20 obstacles ranging from cargo net climbs, to monkey bars to swimming to carry various heavy objects to crawling through waist deep mud Read more


So today I figured I’d do another multiple day update. School seems to out so the gym is now packed with high school kids. That is not a good time but they typically stop going after a couple days and their workouts are very short and sweet. I think I counted 15 of them in the one room on Tuesday though. Yikes. That’s way too many. I have no problem with them other then they take up all the weights and space!

This was a long workout. Took about 2 hours to complete and man was it ever hot in there. I think being almost summer the air conditioner doesn’t quite kick on yet. It’s good for weight loss though, lots of sweat. Wednesdays are typically still kinda busy, but it’s bearable after 10:30 am. Most tend to leave by then and the place gets empty. Nothing worse then waiting forever for a bench or bar or machine!

I did my back and bicep workout today. It went well but I find this one seems to take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours. I think it’s because I need more rest time in between sets for the bicep part. Also, I had someone comment to me yesterday that “I’m pretty proud of myself, aren’t I?” I wanted to address that in this post. I don’t post this stuff to brag. I post it to motivate people and more importantly for my own accountability. Read more
