Howdy, y’all! I posted a guest article from my friend, Mike Whitfield — The Ultimate Workout Grand Finale — a while back. Apparently y’all really enjoyed his workout finishers, so I asked him to share some more. This time, they are specifically “Beautiful Badass Workout Finishers”. Sweet.
Hey, I’m Mike Whitfield and I used to be a whole lotta’ man (that’s the politically correct way of saying I used to be really, really large).
This is a big year for me, and it will be big for you, too. Ten years ago, I decided to shed some weight as I was about 300 pounds. I jumped on the New Year bandwagon, but set some long term goals to keep me going.
My goal was to hit 50 pounds by the time I went on vacation 6 months later.
I nailed it by hitting 75 in just 6 months. Since then, I’ve dropped another 30 pounds and have been able to keep it off. Yes, that’s 105 pounds. And this is the 10th year I’ve lived a healthier lifestyle.
Now if you’re like me, you probably have tried to change your body by hitting the “cardio” pretty hard and failed miserably… at least I did. (Nia — this is a common mistake many trainees make when their goal is fat loss; they rely too heavily on cardio).
