How To Get Ripped Abs Challenge – Day 25
Today is Thursday day 25 on my How to Get Ripped Abs challenge and I go from eating low carbs to having a high carb day. It was a nice change of pace being able to have starchy carbs with every meal and more calories than I would normally take in. It’s not easy getting all the calories in for the day since eating a lot of healthy food is very filling.
For cardio I opted for the elliptical machine workout today to give my knees a break. I’m able to push this workout harder each week and seeing progress in my cardio conditioning. The way I make sure to stay consistent is by making a note of the RPM’s I’m working out at. I’ve been keeping it at level 9 around 92 RPM for the 1 minute work set but this week I pushed myself to stay around 97 RPM for the 1 minute work set and the rest set was also kept at about 5 RPM more. It was a very intense workout and at the end I did a 10 minute cool down just to keep things going a little longer.
The results I’m getting on How to Get Ripped Abs are not only visual but my conditioning level is becoming noticeably better. I’m able to workout at a much higher intensity than I was just 3 short weeks ago. As I’m wrapping up week 4 I can’t imagine how good of condition I’ll be in by the end of week 12 by keeping this up and continually pushing myself harder each week.
