In the GYM! - Body Beast Update

It's been a few weeks since I've updated everyone on my "In the Gym!" goals for 2019. I'm currently on week 5 of the Body Beast program, which is technically week 2 of Block 2: Bulk. There are three blocks in the program: Build, Bulk, and Beast. In Block 2, I'm doing Chest on Mondays, Legs on Tuesdays, Arms on Wednesdays, Cardio & Abs on Thursdays, Back on Fridays, and Shoulders on Saturdays. However, this week I had to switch my "rest day",which would be this Sunday, to Tuesday, as I was a bit under the weather that day. So, basically, I just moved days 2 - 6 forward a day.

Tonight, I'll be doing the "Arms" workout, which is a blend of progressive and single sets using either dumbbells or an EZ Curl Bar. The runtime for the workout is around 35 minutes and it's pretty easy to accomplish, though I'll mostly likely be a bit sore tomorrow.

During week 3, I did add 30-minutes of cycling on an exercise bike, but it was a little too much on my legs, so I had to take it off of the schedule. With all the squats and lunges I've been doing, I've been really sore. However, if I have some extra energy during week 6, I might attempt to some cycling again or some other form of cardio.

I've lost 6.4 pounds since Dec. 31st; making my current weight at 212. The only measurements I've been recording are of my waist and chest. As of Jan. 30th, I've lost 2 inches off my waist and 1.5 inches off my chest (more or less the fat around my armpits). I can now fit back into a size 36" jeans.
