so I begin this on Monday. I'm looking forward to what it can do. I've always been an exercise guy, but I haven't seen the results you'd expect from the amount of work I do, so I've felt I need some direction when it comes to which exercises, in what order, what amount, etc. Also, I've had stretches where I ate well and I've has stretches where I worked out hard...but it seems like getting those two to line up for me at the same time isasking allthe planets to align in a row at the same time. A buddy of mine from high school swears by it and he's got he photos to prove the program. We shall see....if anyone is interested, I'll provide some updates.

I have had friends that have done it. They say the first few weeks kick your ass! I wouldn't mind trying it. Good luck!

holy crap...this thing is kicking my ass! I'm seriously on day 2 and I feel like I've been run over by a truck. I'm in pretty decent shape now (a little "husky", but not too bad) and I've ALWAYS been a runner, but my freaking legs are smoked from the plyometrics. I've done daily pushups for the last 18 months and STILL my chest is aching like a mofo. And the ab ripper....geez. If I can continue without dying, then I'm going to have to change my name to The Situation. More updates to come...but my initial impression is that this program is the real f-ing deal, folks!

To be honest with you, I don't exactly recall. It was one of those "4 monthly payments of $39" type of deals, but I forgot what the monthly payments were.

I have been sort-of sticking to the program for 40 days. I have lost 13 pounds and drastically increased max push-ups and pull-ups. One point, they suggest the recovery drink and I think this stuff is miracle juice. I am not really sore at all the next day IF I drink the recovery drink immediately after working-out. It is kind-of pricey but I could not find anything on the internet or GNC that had the same nutritional info for any cheaper.

I never thought I'd say this sentence in my life, but that yoga is a major league ball buster! I've always been pretty inflexible, though, so it would be nice to feel like Gumby once in a while!
Instead of the recovery drink, I've been just doing a protein shake (with a banana, some yogurt and some V8 fruit juice) after my workout since I get up, go straight to the DVD player, drink the shake, hit the shower and go to work for the next 13ish hours every day. If I did the recovery drink, I don't think I'd be able to fit in a breakfast meal. And it is expensive.

3 weeks down....
total of 9 pounds lost thus far (my goal was 25, so I'm well on my way). Monday starts "Recovery Week 1" (every month the workouts change and there's a recovery week full of yoga and cardio and stuff like that in between the changes).

Forgot to update on Sunday (that's my weigh-in day). 10 lbs down, 20 to go before I hit my "I Seriously Thought I Would Never Ever Ever Come Close to This Weight EVER" weight. I slacked a bit on my intake this past week, though. I eat every 3 hours (something small, typically), but because of insanity at work, I didn't get to eat my 1730, 2030 OR 2330 meals on Thursday and Friday. I didn't super over-indulge when I did finally get chow, so that's a plus...however, the 5 meal-a-day plan helps get my metabolism going, so I want to avoid doing that at all costs. The thing I'm most proud of is that I'm finally putting together a hardcore workout plan with a hardcore diet (daily - 1800 calories, 180 grams protein, 180 grams carb., 40 fat grams - AKA the 40-40-20 Plan - named so because the calories are derived from 40% protein, carbs and 20% fat).

Good Job !!SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
