I did supersets every day. I would do at least 4 to 5 exercises in a row then do abs, take a minute break then repeat 5 to 6 times a day.
- Monday: Chest. Incline Dumbbell Press, Flat Dumbbell Press, Pushups. 6 sets 10 to 12 reps. I did supersets 10 to 12 reps on the presses, Failure on pushups. 50 Crunches. Then repeat.
- Tuesday: Back. Bent Over Row, Back Pull-ups, Chin-ups, Back Extensions, One Arm Rows, Shrugs. 6 sets 10-12 reps. Superset all at once, 20 hanging leg raises at the end. Take 1 minute break. Repeat.
- Wednesday: Legs and Shoulders. Squats, Shoulder Presses. 6 sets 10-12 reps. Superset.
- Thursday: Arms. Barbell Curl, Close Grip Bench Press. 5 sets 12-15 reps. Superset.
- Friday: Chest and Back. Do exactly what I have for Monday and Tuesday all at once. 6 sets, 10 to 12 reps. Superset all at once. 50 Crunches. Repeat.
- Saturday: Rest.
- Sunday: Rest.
Please detail your cardio approach during your transformation?
30 to 45 minutes every day, 1st month. Then the way I workout I got cardio during my workout because it was fast pace and high intensity.
Please list 3 things you learned about exercise, weight training and/or cardio during your transformation that helped you succeed:

Never quit, don’t listen to negative people and realize it takes dedication and time. It will not happen over night.

Bodyweight exercises are those that use your boiywedght for the resistance. If you weigh 150 lbs, then the max resistance you will be able to get off of boiywedght exercises is 150lbs.Weight exercises are using an external weight source ( IE steel plates) which allows you to go PAST your 150 lb mark to whatever your muscle(s) can be trained to work through.Hope This Helps
