Dramatic Transformation-8 Weeks To Abs And Muscular Body
Hello people. I am back at IWB 🙂 This time never to disappear again (Swear to fitness 🙂 ). Regular followers of IWB would have read my posts before. This time I have brought you a fat loss program that I followed for two months to get rid of all the extra flab that I put in few months because of some commitments and a shoulder injury. I cheated on my diet big time, skipped workouts and whatnot. But finally found a way through it. I will share each and every detail of what I followed to transform myself.
Before and after transformation
By god’s grace, I never had issues with my weight. I have always looked like in the picture below.
But in last few months, I had a lot on my plate. My fitness certifications, my shoulder injury, visit by parents and many other things. I was not able to take care of my diet and was not able to make it to the gym and hence started looking like what I look like in the picture on the left below.
So I decided that it was enough now and I need to do something before it was too late. I am a regular follower of bodybuilding.com and there was a program by a fitness celebrity (my favourite) Craig Capurso. It is called supershred 30. It is a 30 day program. Though it was not possible for me to completely follow this program. So I modified this a bit to suit my time schedule and budget J and well, it took me double the time of Craig’s program but I was okay with it. So I was back, ripped and muscular (pic on the right)
Components of my program –
The structure of my program is more or less inspired from Craig Capurso’s super 30. I have mentioned these below
Carb recycling: No this does not mean low carb. I was never a fan of low carb. There are ways to use carbs intelligently rather than completely avoiding it.
Weight training: Oh yes, even for fat loss I incorporate weight training. I don’t like to wind up looking a smaller version of flabby me by just losing weight and not improving my body composition.
Tabata: This was the main change that I saw in super 30 program compared to rest others. It is tough but helps you burn loads of fat while building muscle at the same time
Steady state cardio: Well some people may like to argue. This aint good enough for losing fat. But hey, I always believe that all the aspects of training and nutrition are important. Just as I don’t believe in taking carbs off of your diet, the same way, I don’t believe in not doing steady state cardio.
I will be writing separate posts for each one of these because all of these may work differently for different people and will not be possible to explain all of them in this single post. My next post will come soon. Stay tuned.
