12 Week Bodybuilding ProgramAs many of you know, I started the Body for Life Training program about 12 weeks ago. Overall, I think the program was a great way for me to start a consistent strength training routine. When I first started my journey to getting healthy, I was the queen of cardio. I either ran, walked or did the elliptical for minutes each time I worked out. The cardio definitely helped me lose the weight! Fast forward years, I have stayed at a pretty consistent weight through regular workouts and eating healthy, but I was still longing to be stronger- for instance being able to do a pull-up is one of my fitness goals. Oh, and ripped abs have always been on the wish list as well.

The book continues to be a top seller worldwide, and has sparked a number of copy-cat programs. The author Bill Phillips is inspired, passionate, motivational, and sincere regarding the program.

This last time my workouts were going so well was leading up to my last bodybuilding competition back in , six years ago! My aim in writing this article is to relate back to the previous article I wrote titled 'How I Plan on Winning the BFL Challenge' and seeing how well my plan went that I set at the start of the 12 weeks, including any ups and downs. Also, I would like to give people who are thinking about doing the BFL Challenge a summary of what I did in order to improve my physique, so that they may adapt it to their own personal situation and successfully change their bodies as well. My original plan was to lose at least 20 pounds of body fat. I ended up losing 19 pounds, which was pretty damn close!
