BlubberBeGone Mr & Mrs Challenge Month 1 Results

June 8, 2008 at 11:04 am 3 comments

Well, we’ve been at it four weeks now and the results are just in:

Hubby started at 13 stone 11.2 (87.8 kg), 22.1% body fat, and 10 stone 3.0 (65 kg) lean body mass.
After 4 weeks, he weighs in at 12 stone 13 (82.3 kg), 19.6% body fat, and 9 stone 12.2 (62.8 kg) LBM.
That’s a loss of 12.2 pounds and 2.5% body fat.

Mrs BBG started at 15 stone 13 (101.4 kg), 44.4% body fat, and 8 stone 5.6 (53.5 kg) LBM.
After 4 weeks, I’m at 15 stone 3.2 (96.9 kg), 44.8% body fat, and 7 stone 13.8 (50.8 kg) LBM.
So for me, it’s a loss of 9.8 pounds and up 0.4% body fat.

Overall, not a bad haul in 4 weeks (although I was doing better at week 3!). Just to remind you, or if you’re visiting for the first time, hubby was doing the resistance workouts from beginner level Turbulence Training for Fat Loss 3 times a week, plus 3 sessions running on the treadmill at various intensities and for various lengths of time, depending on how he felt on the day. Also, 5-a-side football once a week and the odd walk with me. From this month, he’ll be doing TT intermediate level workouts and his running schedule is going to be a bit more, well, scheduled. We’ve already got his resting heart rate and today, poor baby, he will be doing a max heart rate test. Then I’m going to schedule in some TT intervals and a training programme based on John Parker’s Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot (see Books page for more details).

I am following the 2008 Self Challenge month 2 resistance and cardio, but adding in extra fun-type cardio as these are the kind of things I want to be able to do (dancing, kickboxing, walking, bike riding – although that last one is still not my idea of fun) and extra pilates. This month I am doing a 9-day Stott pilates reformer course and this will affect my other workouts. So while that is going on, I will keep other workouts to a minimum of Self Challenge resistance twice a week and 30′ cardio 3 times a week, and not much else. My workout schedule for this week looks like this:

Sunday 20′ pilates, 30′ Self 08 Challenge month 2 cardio 1
Monday 20′ Latin Rhythm, 25 mins Self 08 Challenge month 2 resistance workout 1
Tuesday 20′ pilates, 30′ S08C cardio workout 2
Wednesday 20′ pilates, Tae Bo workout
Thursday 25′ S08C weights workout 2, 30′ S08C cardio workout 3
Friday 20′ bike
Saturday Pilates course

    I’m a been follow Craig’s Turbulence Training and he get’s great results. It seems to get people on course quickly where they can see the changes occur. The real challenge is to stay on course with a good maintainance program after the initial weight loss.
