New program time - Day One of Week One of 22 Minute Hard Corps: Cardio 1 & Core 1

I got some extra motivation to bring it with this program yesterday. I did my fit test, took my photos and took my measurements, and while I gained strength doing Hammer & Chisel it’s obvious that I blew it with my nutrition because after 60 days my body composition is essentially the same as it was when I started. Plus, I lost strength in my back (my max reps on pull-ups on my fit test was 13 in one minute - a year ago I could easily do twice that many). There’s a bunch of things going on there. Like I said, nutrition was off (as in, I was a lazy SOB about it for the first 30 days of the program), but also I think I’ve come to the conclusion that my metabolism adapts really quickly to resistance training because of all the endurance activities (cycling, running & soccer) I’ve done throughout my life. 
So, Tony Horton to the rescue once again. I faced this same situation a few years ago when I’d been mostly training at the gym on big lifts. Gained a lot of strength, but also got gooey around the middle. Tony saved my bacon then (and allowed me to eat bacon) so I’m hopeful we get back where I want to be in a couple of months of going Hard Corps (I had to say it). It’s funny, but as a Coach you get excited about new programs, and you want to give them a shot, but you’ve got to know what works best for you. As one of my mentors said, “stay in your lane.” Don’t get distracted by shiny things. Do the thing that works for you.
