Rupe’s Year of the Body: Day 59 (M28)

Submitted by on February 28, 2011 – 5:00 am No Comment

Test Day – Phase 1: (1January – 26February 2011)
– Time Period: 8 weeks
– Weight: 182 (current) –> 175lbs (Between 175 and 177lbs)
– Elliptical Caloric burn: 250 calories in 12 minutes (Only 192 within time)
– Total Mileage: 200 miles (completed – 203.93!)
– Total Calories: 40,000 (completed – 40,027!)
– Pushups: 101 (2 minutes)… (Only completed 70 within time)
– Crunches: 120 (2 minutes)… (Did 100, but only complete 80 within time)
– Total Pushups: 8000 (Not considered for this time period, started late)

All in all I attained 50% of overall goals, still have quite a bit of work to do.  I feel as though my natural body weight needs to be around 177.  I will do a slight modification on my Phase II.  I am also taking a couple days off, sort of ( I will still do pushups and situps, runs etc) until I get back to the states.
