DAY 1Quads, Lower Abs & Calves

It’s day one and I’m up at around 5:30 a.m., ready to get my breakfast down and head to the gym for my first cardio session of the day. But first, I need to tell you what my weight was this morning…I was sitting at 224.6 lbs.
What are you weighing in at? Let’s see where we end up in 8 weeks’ time.
When you're driving to the gym, try and listen to some hard-hitting music or any type of music that gets your head in the right state of mind so you'll be ready to attack the weights with maximum effort. I like to listen to music like Korn on my way to the gym as I imagine taking myself through sets of my upcoming workout with crazy intensity. Let me know what music you guys listen to. I'm always looking for new tracks.
Everybody has the same opportunity to start this program, just as we all have our own obstacles to deal with. The real difference lies within your own action, and this depends on how committed you are to your goals. On the first day, you’re bound to be motivated, but I need you to carry that on through this whole transformation. 
Tag me on your socials with #HardcoreTrainer2 and let me know where you are at so I can hold you accountable. 

Today we’re crushing quads, lower abs and calves. Let’s have it!
