Buff Buddes Weeks 3 & 4: Achieving Goals

So Week 3 definitely was a little bump in the road for me. I did manage to limit myself during the Thanksgiving festivities, but at the same time, I also did pretty bad maintaining my 10 hour a week goals. I ended up fatiguing my arm during Krav Maga during week 2 and that translated to a lot of workout limitations.

However, after taking some time to recover I was able to dominate week 4. The academy I go to for Parkour was closed for the holiday so I ended up going rock climbing and swimming instead. I ended up reaching my swimming goal and am now going to be focusing on increasing my distance instead of speed. After I build up to doing 1650m freestyle with no rest I will be working my way to get below a 10:00 speed.

I also realize that while I am getting stronger there still some fat I can cut back on. I will be now dropping some of the more fatty foods(lbreads, pastas, and dairy) to try and achieve a 7% fat. Regretfully, I did end up gaining 1% of my body fat back. I also decided to include more jogging to help reduce the fat and to build up to that 5 minute mile.

500m swim(Goal: 11:00, Fastest before week 0: 15:10, Fastest this week: 10:26) – Swim goal accomplished!

Result: Getting close to a lot of my goals. I feel confident I will be hitting a lot of them before the end of week 16.

Overall Conclusion:
I am definitely getting there with some of my goals but I feel like I still need to push myself a bit to achieve them. I am also starting to focus on some strength base goals as well like handstand push ups and one hand pull ups. If I do see progress in these two exercises I may be adding it to the list of goals.
