I’m writing this from the hairdresser with no glasses on, do you’ll have to forgive me for any typos!

This week I started Jim Stoppani’s Shortcut To Shred program. I know what my body is like and just doing straight up weightlifting sessions does not help my burn fat. The STS program is like a bit HIIT session – in between every single set you do one minute of cardio. I can easily say they have been the hardest workouts I’ve ever done.

And the most effective. I can already see significant changes in the amount of muscle I have (particularly biceps and triceps) and I did a sneaky weigh in on Wednesday (3 days in) and had lost 1kg!

I have never felt as exhausted as I do after these workouts but that’s also a backhanded good thing as I know I’ve worked as hard as I could. Diet wise, I feel as though I’m constantly eating, but I think it has definitely started fixing my otherwise ruined metabolism. I’m now eating 6 or so meals a day and having casein protein before bed to keep my digestive system moving while I sleep.

I have taken ‘before’ photos, though I think I’ll post them at the end of the six weeks for a comparison.

I’m loving this program so far and highly recommend it. I love that its backed by actual science (Jim has a PhD and heavily researches everything).

If you want to check the program out, it’s free on bodybuilding.com.
