Ok so now comes my prep for Day 1 of my 90 day workout using power 90. I have all the home workout equipment I need. So ,I followed the instructions given in the power 90 insturctions and took my day 1 photo. I’m a bit reluctant to show it as it shows just how desperately in need of exercising I truly am. Taking your day one picture will give you the opportunity to visually gauge how effective your exercise routine is working. Even if you’re not doing the power 90 in home boot camp I encourage you to do the same as both an inspiration to improve your physical health as well as something for comparison as you progress through your workout program.
In addition to the photo, I have calculated exactly how much body fat I truly have using the 90 workout calculator that I have for my power 90 fitness program. It includes taking multiple measurements of your body including, height, weight, biceps, thighs, waist, chest and hips. Knowing these measurements will allow you to have something you can go back and check later to see how much progress you’re making with your weight loss, fat burning and muscle building during your exercise program. Using these current statistics I was able to set some weight loss and fat reduction goals for myself and hope to achieve them using power 90.
Below are my stats when I started my 1st day of the Power 90 in home boot camp.
|Waist (inches)||42 1/2|
|Neck (inches)||16 3/4|
|Get Body Fat % From:||Auto Calc|
|Body Fat %||30.66|
|Chest (inches)||43 1/2|
|Right Thigh (inches)||21 1/2|
|Left Thigh (inches)||21 1/4|
|Right Bicep (inches)||12 3/4|
|Left Bicep (inches)||13|
|Starting Statistics||Sunday, June 05, 2011|
|Body Fat %||30.66||%|
As you can see I have a substantial amount of body fat to shed. My goal for this 90 workout program is to lose 20 pounds of weight, hopefully get off of my blood pressure medicine and maintain a more consistent diet to control not only my weight but my diabetes as well.
Before starting day 1 you should also have your diet planned out in advance. The power 90 fat burning program is based around eating a healthier diet to optimize your body’s natural fat burning process. The diet consists of a regular eating schedule, lean meats, lower carbs and smaller portions. Understanding your calorie intake vs. the amount of calories you burn are all well described within the power 90 diet plan. If you really want to track your daily calories you can create an online log at calories.about.com. I highly recommend this site as it has made tracking my diabetes diet much easier.
