Mixed thoughts really.
I wrote this a bit a go, but seeing as my other half has goaded me in to before and after pictures I thought it worth posting.
The workouts don’t last long – 30 minutes and you’re done. That’s a good thing, because we’re all busy right? But it doesn’t feel like I’ve killed myself in the gym, which feels like cheating (don’t get me wrong the 22 minutes and 14 seconds I did of weight lifting was full on.
I know it was 22 minutes and 14 seconds because I timed the sets. It might sound mad timing them, but once you understand how and why Vinnie got his results, you’d think the opposite – it’s mad not to.
But here’s the thing. I am feeling tired at the end of the day – no trouble sleeping at night at all. And there’s that dull ache in my muscles – so I guess it’s hitting all the right buttons.
I’m also following the nutrition advice as best I can (you can forget doing this plan – or any plan come to that – if you don’t go large on changing what, and how much, you eat. Working out in the gym is only half the battle, which I’m sure is why I failed before to build muscle).
Basically, eating loads more protein (still getting used to eggs and toast for breakfast).Protein shake before and after working out. Sandwiches for lunch are either chicken, salmon or tuna. In the evening I’m just having more protein than carbs. Last night was spag bol – halved the spaghetti and had a load more bolognaise.
Only other difference is the supplements. Apart from the protein shakes, there’s only three ‘must have’ supplements in the plan – the rest won’t do much for you.
I’ll keep you posted.
