This month as I was doing another 2 week stint in Germany, it’s getting really hard to maintain any kind of routine so I decided to give PHD Lean Degree a try. Properly this time, the one thing I can maintain out in Nuremburg is an aerobic routine, no matter how late you work there’s always time to run! Its a couple of miles to the office. I have a nice little 5 miler down the river and a 8 and a half for the weekend to a lovely little place called Furth. I balanced this with a mini hotel room routine, press ups, dips, you know with stuff in the room. I also worked on some deep core stuff my father had been working with me on, aligning the spine with leg raises and pelvis lifts so no direct ab work. 10 days in and I just put on a pair of 32 inch waiste trousers I bought in Nuremburg the other week. I checked the mirror (as you do ) obviously and the vertical line between my abs is back. I will be in the UK for the rest of the tub of lean degree and between houses so the routine and moreso, maintaining alean diet is hard bbut I shall get through that and finish off this post!
Back in the UK, still between homes so not much opportunity to use the gym which meant I mainly stayed focused on aerobic. I managed to keep up a regular routine with at least a 5 mile run every other day, road biking and light exercise at home. I managed to keep this up for the remainder of the tub of lean degree. Without a doubt, all my trousers are again too big for me! this time as opposed to the last time I did a weight loss exercise, this time I started at a 32 wiaste.
So for my evaluation, in all honesty and knowing to what extent I lost body fat one year ago and together with the fact that I do not have a lot left to lose I feel I acheived better results WITH PHD Lean Degree than I would have done by simply maintaining an aerobic program WITHOUT Lean Degree. Not scientifically proven but this is my opinion!
