    Curt James' training journal

    Recently I've been following a circuit routine using Life Fitness machines at my local (to home) Gold's or Body Masters machines circuit at my nearby (to work) Planet Fitness.

    But that's not why I'm starting this journal.

    Uh, anyone see Book of Eli?

    Went to the 4:30 p.m. showing today. It's been trashed a bit by the critics, but I really enjoyed it.

    ^I'm beginning my journal with a cut.

    March 29, 2010 as the start date. Ten weeks to June 1, 2010.

    I'm planning on dropping from 200something to 180 or so. Looking for a twenty-pound loss.

    Thank you for asking.

    I'm in south-central Pennsylvania and have been hibernating for some time now.

    20 pounds in 10 weeks Curt? Is that even possible without losing lbm?
    How you planning to go about it? Standard calories deficit or low carb/refeed?

    I'll be 48 in August and dropped that same amount at age 45 using an Ellington Darden crash diet. lol

    Designed for two weeks, I followed it for that little bit over two months. Lost two pounds ever week for ten weeks.

    Yes, I lost lbm, but I don't have much to begin with, so it's almost a non-factor.

    I jumped big time from the end of the starvation cut to a few weeks after ending the diet.

    At the end of the cut:

    October 31, 2007 @ 149 lbs., 6'1"

    After:

    January 5, 2008 @ 186.5 lbs.

    I was doing a full-body workout three times per week plus daily cardio. Near the end I was doing double cardio sessions of varying intensity. I'd spend 45 minutes to an hour on the treadmill, ten minutes at 3.0 speed, 3 minutes at 6.0, 5 minutes at 4.0, 2 minutes at 6.5, and so on.

    Blogged it on BodySpace. My account is curt_james on that site, fwiw.

    Who'za NERD?

    Can even e-mail it to myself and then copy/paste the workout into my journal. Maintain a workout journal here (non-existent, okay, starting end of next month) and on Rx, MD, and a few other sites.

    lol

    Uh, thanks.

    Because traps are the muscle group of choice for impressing people.

    I'd trade a bit of trapezius for shoulder width and triceps.

    Okay, and just about every other body part.

    Seriously, I appreciate the good word.

    ok, so you can put it in your BlackBerry.... so why not start posting now? Are you going to follow the same FB routine that you did last time?

    ^That's the plan or goal. And "why not start posting now?"

    Because I'm not in the gym now. I lost my motivation recently with work demands, the weather, [insert other excuses here].
