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!
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!
Today for Shoulders I’m going to be using the FacelessFitness Pyramid Set technique, This combines high reps and heavy weights and gets really great results, It works really well for shoulders but can also be applied to any muscle group. However trainer beware you do not want to use this technique on every muscle group every time as it will lead to over training. We did use it last week but I feel fresh enough to go again. Definitely do not use this technique for every muscle group every day!
It’s Thursday of week 3 on the facelessfitness.com gym programme, Today is shoulders, Traps and Abs day. I really think these muscle groups give you the biggest bang for your buck in terms of completing a real transformation, the shoulders and traps give your upper body real shape, making your frame wider and tshirts hang off you. The Abs will really be achieved through a progressive diet and cardio regime over the next couple of weeks but our aim at this point is to actually build our abdominal muscles so that when we shred down our body fat we have something meaningful to reveal.

Ah yes back to shoulders traps and abs day. I feel the these three muscle groups actually have the biggest influence in determining your shape, if you can make your shoulders wide and your waist trim you can dramatically alter how you look! Traps n shoulders are my favourite muscles, you simply can not beat being well defined in these areas! For abs we are never going to look to do 100’s of crunches or rack up 1000 sit ups in a Continue reading
Today was the first tough day, initially physically from when I got up until I got home after work. I threw on my gym gear, sat in front of the tv for an hour and watched Futurama followed by The Simpsons. Now here is where the mentally tough part kicked in, another Simpsons about to start, I’m sleepy, tired, and my legs are absolutely shot from last night. Glutes in particular are painful. The easiest thing in the world would be to not go, some people watch a motivational video or find a good motivational post on a social network, I don’t….not this early into the programme. This is the first of many motivation challenges I will have to face to complete out this programme. Don’t use motivational vids or social media posts to give you motivation, only use them to give you MORE motivation, become mentally strong in yourself. F**k it, I’m going!
Total Workout Time: 1 hr 11 minutes
