New Rules of Lifting for Abs is Complete!

February 12, 2012

On Wednesday, I finished NROLFA. I really loved this program. After I ran Baystate Marathon, I raced Spooky Sprint a tad close together (less than 2 weeks) – and while both were performed pretty well, I just couldn’t jump back into a string of long runs. So I continued to run, but worked on lifting.

This program has three phases – each with a workout A and B. You alternate A&B of each phase until you’ve completed each 6-8 times. I opted for 8 of all.

I think I liked Phase 3 best, but really the whole program was fantastic. I feel much stronger, and shockingly, even faster at running. On Thursday, I ran a 6 mile progressive run and finished with a 6:56 pace. Not too bad, right? 🙂 I do love a little sub 7.

Ok, so here we have it.

Shoulder definition (finally!):

And a second, where you can see a bit of linea alba forming:

Here is a comparison. I was kind of working on Phase 1 here, but this was really before I’d started the program in earnest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the end of Phase 2:

And the end of Phase 3: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn’t take any ab pics from Phase 1….because there wasn’t any real definition to show (at least in my opinion).

Phase 2:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And after Phase 3:

I’m not sure if anything happening, ab-wise, from a aesthetic perspective, but I do see some changes around the lower waist/back. I also have more strength though, which is good.

I wholeheartedly recommend this program. Whether you’re new to lifting or just looking to shake up your routine – this is great stuff!
