I had formerly been a member of A1A. Being out of consistent exercise for a few years and having some bad eating habits, I was at an all time high (in weight). Seeing all of Dan’s posts of everyone getting solid results through dieting, including people I knew from the gym, seemed like a way for me to jumpstart getting back into health and fitness.
Dan was super helpful in answering the most basic of questions and sending preliminary info so i gave it a shot.
It’s very easy to follow if you’re committed to the program.
What was the hardest part? What as the easiest?
Just gotta stay disciplined and theres plenty of good stuff to eat! Learning to cook simple things at home was very easy once I tried.
What had you tried before? Did it work?
I had cut out bad foods and ate “healthier”. It worked OK, but nowhere near as quickly, effectively and efficiently as TDP because just “eating healthier” without specific guidelines you THINK you’re being better than you are.
Checking in and following a list are both very key.
What are your goals and plans moving forward?
My goals are to stay disciplined of diet guidelines and do another good Phase 1 on my own so I can send you GREAT before/after body shots. Especially since I’ve started going to my apartment gym twice a week now!
This combination of a strict pull up and a strict ring dip is performed with out any swing or kip, with the rings starting in a turn out position from a dead hang and a turn out position on top of the rings.
There’s always been controversy surrounding the kipping pull ups. It’s dangerous, it’s cheating, you look like a noodle on the bar.
To be clear, I mostly agree with all of these statements.
First – the kipping pull up is absolutely dangerous for anyone not strong enough to do at least 5 strict pull ups.
If you cannot perform 5 strict (and I mean real-strict, none of this bent leg, bent knee kicking business. Hollow body STRICT!
Second – it’s not cheating.
It’s only cheating if doing a box jump is cheating for a back squat. They’re two different movements. One is strength, one has completely different purposes and applications. If you’re calling it cheating, you’re failing to see the mechanism of the training device.
