Am new to this board though I've been hanging out on a similar board in the Netherlands.
My background is not BB at all, but cycling. I've been struggling with obesity for a long time despite cycling lots.
Since about 4 weeks I'm following a ketogenic diet, which I changed into a cyclical ketogenic diet 2 weeks ago and which will be changed again next week into a targeted ketogenic diet to diminish carb cravings after carboloading.
I have started more or less a Body-for-Life program but due to logistics and availability I am doing 2 cardio exercises on the same day as I work out and one on the following day
in week 1
mon upper body am aquajogging pm
wed lower body & abs & spinning lesson am
fri upper body am
sat spinning lesson & depletion work out (is it necessary for TKD??) ..
mon lower body & abs am aquajogging pm
wed upper body & spinning am
fri lower body & abs am perhaps spining pm
sat rowing or spinning am
I'm a bit puzzled what to do on Saturday after a lower body workout on Friday. I was so sore from 2 new exercise I included to improve my butt (squat lunge with dumbbells, step up and one additional set on the standing gluteus machine). The first 2 exercises I've done in the past with my fysiotherapist for healing a foot injury (fasciatis plantar(s?)is) after having tried to burn a lot of cals by skipping rope.. not a good idea.
My cycling background is both practical, leisure and sports.
Practical: don't have a car and simply do my shopping and visit the gym at 9 miles by bike.
Leisure: I've cycle-toured for 1 year in Northern America (2000-2001) and just came back from 3 months in Brazil.
Sports: took up long-distance cycling between 1996-1999 and discovered it was a great way to lose weight even when you keep eating junkfood.. once I quit, I gained a lot of weight again.. next year I hope to complete a 750 mile nonstop cycling event with 10 000 m of climbing (33 K feet?) in 90 hours.. so want to get FIT, LEAN AND MEAN! That's a lot when you start at 36% BF...
So girls I could need your help! It's more fun to be in a group with more women as well...
