Blog of a Badass II

BadassHello  Everyone!!

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….

Cheers everyone!!
