The Updated #BBC2016  Plan for Fitness Success!

We are now past the half way point of our #BBC2016 challenge.  I checked in with you all via Twitter earlier this week with my updated dimensions.  It was very disappointing!  As a result I committed to a new plan of attack for success for the #BBC2016.




The most humbling thing was to see that I had gained an inch on my waist.  I am now at 39 inches.  I started at 38 inches!  This told me that I need to focus and dial in on fat loss as my goal.  The best way I know how to do this is to improve my cardio, and therefore become more able to go harder + faster for longer.  As a military man the idea of a morning run is something i am very comfortable with.  I used to go for regular morning runs and swims when I was at my best.  In order to not reinvent the wheel, I have returned to what brought me success in the past:




Starting this week I have begun running a 7K route that takes me up Mill Hill in Victoria, BC with an elevation of over 400m.  In my first week I will run this 3 times to get used to the aches and pains, with a 5 day a week schedule starting on the 15th of May.




While you certainly can’t flex cardio, as a man it is nice to be able to flex something.  Combine the need for vanity with the fact that I have some injuries I need to stay on top of in order to keep up my aggressive running schedule, and GYM time is a MUST.  I have begun a strength routine pairing Chest w/ Biceps, Back w/ Triceps, and Legs + Lower body.  In addition my warm up routine includes Hip strength exercises in order to deal with an injury, and core (abbs + lower back) work.  The first week I paired this with a 3 day cycle, and starting on 15 May I will be upping this to 5 days / week to match my running schedule.


This is the updated plan.  What do you think?  What is your plan?  How are you doing on your #BBC2016?  Leave a comment below to update us on how your doing, any challenges you are having and the success your experiencing.
