Good morning! At 5:00 AM this morning I had a panic email from a previous client.  She is spending a few weeks at the beach.  Her goal was to tend to fitness and drop a few pounds while getting a little R & R.  She is biking 20 miles every day and walking too.  Eating lean protein and salads.  It's been 3 weeks and she has lost 1lb.  Needless to say she is very disheartened.

Good day, friends! After training for a week using the P.H.A.T routine (described in my last entry) I can safely say it is a true form of ass-kickery. For the first time in quite a while, I was thankful for the rest day. Surprisingly, the upper body power workout session I posted earlier proved to be the most difficult. I was expecting leg day to be excruciating (and it was), but it was already somewhat similar to my current leg routine. For the record, the leg power day consisted of the following:
