A hectic week by all accounts but managed to stay true to my training and plan. A real clash of work commitments couple with gym goals, this was a testing week but I’ve come through it more motivated than ever. My body is really beginning to kick itself into shape and a few additional minor adjustments should really amplify the results I’m seeing, I’m right where I want to be! It’s the half way point and I must say I’m enjoying the training as much as ever, no lapse, and this has to hold in the next 6 weeks as work is becoming nuts again.
Really happy that I am continuing to push myself not just in every workout but in every rep!

Week 3 went extremely well, hit all my workouts and made progress on every weight I lifted, I’m still in the easing myself back in phase but feeling really strong. I love training and with 9 more weeks to go I’m highly motivated. On the work front, things got busy again but where there’s a will there’s a way! Discipline and determination to maintain a work-life balance has been key, that and training late at night!
From my summary measurements below you can see that I’ve lost 3 lbs in 3 weeks, not huge you may say and if I were looking at weight alone I could easily get disappointed, but I’m not! Instead I have added 10.5 cm’s of muscle to the body parts that I want, and lost 3.5 cm’s off of my waist at rest. I can’t stress enough how measuring your weight alone is not and should not be done. I feel great and am beginning to look great. Continue reading

Its the end of week 5 here at facelessfitness.com and it’s a training day. I’m travelling later today and hoping it won’t take 5 hours like last week 😦 But this means I’m going to train in the morning before I go, in case anything comes up later which means I can’t train. It is the last day of week 5 and tomorrow is a no training day so I really want to smash it!
Total Workout Time: 1 hr 1 mins
Even though it’s Friday this project won’t do itself. And similar to yesterday It’s unlikely I will make it to the Gym. I had initially planned on Back & Biceps tonight but that will not happen. Between work, gym & home life it’s all about getting the balance right. You can’t neglect any one of these. I got home late from work but honestly probably did have enough time to make the gym if I really wanted to. However Continue reading
It’s Wednesday evening of the facelessfitness.com gym programme, after the long weekend. Motivation is low. I worked another 10 hour day at work so I’ll be getting to the gym late this evening. I’m tired and a genuine emotional wreck. Why the hell did I drink so much on Sunday. It’s funny its still affecting me. No more! Let’s smash the weights and hope I survive!
Total Workout Time: 1 hr 12 mins

Day 30…tough going. I’m just about recovered for the alcohol but today I am back to work and it’s hectic. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those long short weeks at work, where because of the bank-holiday and having Monday off, I will now be chasing the week working extra hours to get s**t nailed by Friday. I worked 10 hours today, which added to my commute means that I was out of the house for 12 hours. Whatever your situation you can find the time if you really want it!
Anyway, it’s Shoulders and Traps today and it’s time to hit the gym!
Total Workout Time: 1 hr 2 mins
Its the end of week 4 here at facelessfitness.com and we’re finishing with Legs and a 30 minute walk. I will be going drinking for the last time today, so it’s important I really put in in this morning on this workout. The FacelessFitness Programme allows alcohol up to the end of the fourth week, in moderation! but then no drinking for the remaining 8 weeks. I’m home and meeting some old friend so it could get interesting, however I’m here to smash legs. I’m using a different gym today again, it’s pay as you go and one I use a lot when I’m home. Should be a little quieter too on a bank-holiday sunday! Lets do this.
