I'm a 38 year old married father of 4 from Indiana. I have a demanding full-time job and I am very involved in my kids' activities including coaching little league baseball during the summer. I have an athletic background going back to my childhood, but life gets hectic and bad habits settle in as it relates to reduced physical activity and nutrition. I've tried various workouts and diets, but I always seem to get back to my old habits before I reach my goals.
When I found MAX Workouts I was looking for a workout that I thought would be demanding enough to provide results, but not take an hour plus a day. With all that I have going on in my life, I just don't always have that much time to devote to physical fitness. MAX Workouts provided exactly what I was looking for!
I had rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder in October, 2012. It took three months of recovery and rehab before I could even start lifting very light weights. I was not cleared to start lifting normal weights until late April. This transformation contest arrived just in time. At the start of the contest, I had been relatively inactive for around 9 months due to my shoulder injury. Over that time, I packed on around 15 to 20 lb. I started the contest on May 19, 2013 and weighed 252 lb and just wasn't feeling very healthy or good about myself. I ended the contest on August 12, 2013 and was down to 224 lb. for a loss of 28 lb!
My measurements were as follows:
Date: May 19, 2013 August 12, 2013
Chest - 49 inches 46.5 inches after
Waist - 47.5 inches 42 inches after
Hips - 45 inches 41.5 inches after
Thigh - 27" (R) 26.5" (L) 25" (R), 24.5" (L)
Arm - 16.5" (R) 16.5" (L) 14.5" (R), 14.5" (L)
19.5 total inches of fat lost!!
I have so much more energy. When I leave the gym I feel better results in 30 minutes than I used to feel in over an hour. I'm the only one pushing tempo and sweating in the weights area at the gym. The workouts are fun and I like the diversity. Your encouraging emails and nutritional information are just a bonus to the great workout plan. I have really tried to follow your low carb advice. Thanks for helping me get off to a great start! I want to lose another 25 lbs and I feel like you've given me the tools to do it. I look forward to seeing my improvement in Round 2!!
