Re: Simon's Progress Report

Sunday 7/7/2012 will mark the end for my 12 week commitment. For the most part I stayed faithful to the program when physically able. Due to past injuries there were some exercises I just couldn't do. Anyone who thinks the Atlas program isn't going to work 'cause no weights are involved, I'm here to...

Re: Simon's Progress Report

Thank you emfermi. I have dialed things back. I'm no longer doing Mid-Day cardio and I've dialed back the intensity of my workouts. Since doing so I have been sleeping better, and not suffering.

Re: Simon's Progress Report

This is going to be a whining session. Please forgive me, but I need to vent a bit. Feel free to ignore me but I just need to scream for a minute or two. I hope you understand For over two months now I have been working out three times a day. 30-45 minutes of AM strength training 60-120 minutes of M...

Re: Simon's Progress Report

I have found I cannot do the exercises of Lesson 8 due to past shoulder/arm injuries. So instead, this week I have gone back to doing the Abs exercises. I went to my Doctor and she said she is so proud of me for how I have stuck to working out and strengthening my body. She also pointed out how much...

Re: Simon's Progress Report

The first two days of Lesson 6 I could not do exercise #1 without using the back of a chair under my backside to help me ballance. By day 3 I was able to do it with only a little struggling to maintain my balance. 5 days in now and I have very little trouble staying up on one leg. I really like this...

Re: Simon's Progress Report

15+ mile bike ride today. It was farther than I should have gone, but I sort of got into a zone and kept telling myself, “Just a little farther, then I will turn around and go back.” My legs are tired, but not overly so. My back though, that last mile really got to my back. It took me about two hour...
