Hello everyone, this is what I am currently doing in my workouts.
Day one with Guts was as follows:

push-ups: 30
sit-ups: 60
tbs:100 then step-ups for the last 10 minutes
sit-ups:60
push-ups:30
milo:10/10, i think maybe too much tension.

Day 2, which was 10-31-09
Push-ups: 30
sit-ups:60
squats:200, then step-ups for last 5 mintes
sit-ups:60
push-ups:30
milo:10/10, 10/10, i think too much tension still.
Then an extra 140 atlas 3 push-ups.

Today will be day three. will post after i have completed it.
I am hoping to start adding pull-ups in the evening as time permits. Would also like to include ab wheel roll-outs.

Well, here is what i did for today, 11-03-09.

Due to a 2 year old, an a 7 month old, I was unable to sneak away to the basement for more than a minute at a time. So today I did 265 Atlas lll push-ups,in sets of 20-30 throughout the day. Its not perfect by a long shot, but that was what I was able to fit in.

Tomorrow is a new day, let's see what happens.

Take care,

Matt

I think 265 of the Atlas III's will get the job done. I find that this version works the legs and abs MUCH more than the Atlas I version.

Alright, here is today's workout.

Atlas lll .....30
sit-ups......50
step-ups....12 mins
sit-ups......60
atlas lll.......30
atlas leg lifts...50
atlas lll......20......20
milo.....20/20......15/15.

I find the milo to be rather miserable after everything else. I also found that if i squeeze a small cloth in each hand (like one of my son's bib's) then it helps to contract my forarms more. Food for thought. Take care everyone.

Hey Matt,
Great workout! I have to agree with you on how difficult the MILO can be after the workout.

Last night at work I tried to do pull-ups in easy sets. Was able to get in a few pull-ups but was then interupted with calls(ems, car accident) so that was that.

Todays workout is as follows for 11-06-09.

Atlas lll ........30
situps ..........60
squats.........200, this time in sets of 50
situps..........60
pus-ups......25
milo............20/20, 15/15
Atlas lll.......25........20.

If there is time tonight would like to do more pull-ups and ab wheel rollouts.

See ya.

I was hoping to add a few thoughts that I have had so far about the GUTS workout.

First, I like that it can be as hard as i want it to be. On days when I feel strong and froggy, then I can go hard an even add a bunch of extra's at the end. On days when I am beat, I can dial it back, and then finish the workout feeling better than when i started.

Second, the work out could not be more simple. Four exercise, 24 minutes, and that is if you last the entire time.Even I can fit that in. The big difference I see already of this work out compared to a P90X is that I believe this workout will allow someone to much more consistant over a much longer period of time. I am not disputing that the p90x delivers great results in the 90 days, but the hour and a half workouts can be a bit of a pain to fit in the day.And honestly, I didnt like the fact that their workouts only did push-ups one day a week(ugh). I believe that this shorter workout, with fewer (albeit better) exercises will be able to give better results for a longer period of time.

That is just my two cents.

See ya later,

Matt
