Man did I procrastinate this post on my 4 Hour Body results! And it wasn’t for any other reason than I was just too lazy to type it. So what happened? I added 10 pounds. I gained some muscle (4 pounds) but not a lot. I gained weight and mostly it was fat (six pounds).
I learned that lifting weights with that protocol is harder than it sounds. And I learned that what you eat and how you eat will effect the results more than anything. I have some before and after pictures that are so unimpressive that I am not posting them because, well, I look not so good. I’ll save you the visual.
So can you get those results by following that protocol? It’s entirely possible I guess. It didn’t work for me though but I did not do it exactly as listed. I didn’t eat as well as I should have. I found the workouts a little boring and harder (because of the cadence) than expected.
So what have I been doing? I have been playing basketball more. I play a couple of times a week.
I am still lifting weights and am experimenting with some minimalist type workouts: 2 to 4 exercises with heavy weights and low reps, three days a week. I’ll do that for a while and see what happens.
I’ll post some more this month. Later.
