Fat loss with Growth Stimulus Training with photos and videos
I am beginning a new program for the new year and decided it might be motivational for me to Journal with peers that are all training hard for similar goals. I am using the program GST (Growth Stimulus Training) but this style is completely different than anything that I am used to or prefer.
When I go into the gym to train my goal has always been to work as hard as I can, as fast as I can and to leave the gym drenched in sweat. Granted this method has always proved to give me results the older I get the more injuries I seem to be racking up. I recently took 2 months off. It was not suppose to be a break. In my head I had convinced myself that I can just do really hard cardio and still maintain the body I want that way I would not get injured from weight lifting.
As you can imagine my body changed in quick fashion. I started not wanting to be in my underwear in front of my husband (not because I was gaining so much weight but the cellulite on my hamstrings and glutes was ridiculous).
I started talking with my husband Ryan Miller (creator of GST) and I asked him if he would design a program for me using his concepts. He flat out refused said it would create fights because I have never liked him telling me how to train or eat just as he is very protective of his fitness preferences.
After a couple weeks of begging and promising him that I would follow the program and listen to him without taking it as criticism... he still refused. So I did what any wife would do in that situation I opened up my own Chase credit card and bought the book so he had no choice but to make me a program
Anyway that is how I have found myself on this new training path. I am going to be turning 30 in 3 months (march 18th) and my goal is to be in the best possible shape I can be in by then. I want to get professional photos taken of me (and hopefully Ryan will be in them as well) and I want to just have them so I can look back some day with my kids and grandkids and show them that I did do that I stuck with it was disciplined enough and I did it.
And I want to not have so many injuries. I only have this body and it has many years yet to get me through so I dont want to do damage now that will cost me time away from my family down the road while I am laid up from surgeries. Plus I want to prove my husband wrong. I want to be able to stick with this style and not resort back to circuit training style like he assumes I will.
I can do it
