I wanted to share with you some of my results from working on Joe DeFranco’s Built Like a Badass.
It is a 12 week program that is like nothing I have ever done before. Intense, diverse and rewarding are my 3 best descriptions for the program. You definitely need a good base before you venture into this program.
I completed the program 4 times in the last year and here are some of the changes that I have seen.
I now weigh 182 pounds. I have never been able to get over 180 in my life until this program. My Percent body fat is the same so I know that I have put on some muscle 🙂
All Numbers will be before Badass and then after 4 rounds.
Chin Ups Max reps 22 up to 38 ( a number that I never imagined until this program)
Flat Bench 225 up to 240
Box Squat 275 up to 375
Body Weight inverted Row – 23 total reps in 2 sets to 46 reps
One test I did on my own was the Standing Long Jump – 2.52 m up to 2.68 m
In 4 rounds I never broke the elusive 6 minute mile…..I hit 6:01 twice. That is a number that I would like to break…I may need to do that one day on its own away from the killer leg workout.
Joe, thanks for a great program!! I really enjoyed it!!! Do you have a new program in the works called Beyond a Badass????? I may have to create my own hybrid….
