Bill Pay Sundays: Every Sunday, TPOL peddles for money by promoting products that I use and recommend to my readers. In exchange, I get paid a referral fee. As part of the Training for the Tropics series, I’m pushing the following:
- MuscleEgg: the best protein to get in shape.
- TRX Ropes: the best way to workout on the road.
- Costco Broccoli: (If only I had an affiliate link.)
Before coming on this trip, I thought it would be a good idea to outsource my workout and diet to someone else. I’m not knocking that program, but I quit it and went with TPOL’s Tahiti Diet and my own workout plan. The workout was simple:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Chest, Back, Biceps – 5 sets (15, 12, 10, 8, 6 reps). One exercise per muscle group. Run 3 miles. 100 oblique reps and 50 ab reps between each set.
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday: Legs, Shoulders, Triceps – (15, 12, 10, 8, 6 reps). One exercise per muscle group. Run 3 miles. 100 oblique reps and 50 ab reps between each set.
Judging by the photos, the Chicken & Broccoli plan worked. I actually gained eight pounds. I’m not as cut as previous benchmark photos, but I’ll take the gains in strength over being lean. I still have a ways to go to get to Mr. Olympia, but the before and after speaks for itself.
What are you waiting for? Buy egg whites, do abs on TRX, and follow the Tahiti Diet.
