Belz- Final Post 

I mentioned before I really enjoyed this program. I went into it hoping for a near perfect program but quickly realized compromises needed to be made.

This was a busy season, hosting my parents for 6 weeks, my sister (who comes with a husband and 3 energetic boys; 2,4,6), evening activities almost every week night, and endless summer weekend parties. With all that in mind, something had to give.

Workouts. With the exception of the last week were I was ramping up for a pickleball tournament over the weekend with a couple 4 hour practice sessions and not wanting to go in too sore. (Strategy worked as I won bronze) I hit most the workouts. The ones I missed will become part of my maintenance plan.

Diet was 60-70% depending on the week. I could have done better but decided I would rather enjoy life and incremental changes to my body. Steps were made forward albeit not as many had I committed fully to the diet. That said. I did fit into my size 32 skinny jeans for the first time in 4 years. (Why a 44 year old, uncool dad owns skinny jeans is a question for another day)

Blogs was what suffered the most. I enjoy the blogs- the camaraderie and being a good teammate. I just could not find the will or the energy on this program. Analyzing it a little I realizes that I have moved to almost 100% using the program on my app. I find the app hard to track who is on my team and then easily navigate to new posts etc. Excuses, excuses, excuses. Basically I just kinda sucked......

Will post final pic tonight

Belz- Day 32

This program rocks. Each workout leaves in a puddle of sweat but wanting more.

Too bad bells don’t travel well or I would jump on Belz 2 immediately.

Unless I can fit them in my wife purse, the damn think is big enough. Now there’s a thought.


Belz- Day 27

Program going well. Really love the workouts. I have a workout to make up tomorrow but batting 100% on workouts/ lessons.

Blogs are another story. Have struggled to get on to blog and interact.

It’s not you my fine teammates it me.

Still around 70% on the diet.


Belz- Day 15

Week 2 review.

Workouts- 7/7. Good week of workouts. Got them all done and played a lot of pickleball as well.

Diet- I would say 65-70%. Room for improvement that’s for sure.

Blogs- 2/5 Pretty piss poor actually. Spent very little time blogging/ reading blogs.

Lessons- 7/7. Always love the lessons.

Overall not bad. Love working out every day. Still doing most the workouts with my son.

Hope everyone is doing good. Will spend some time tonight catching up on your blogs.


Belz- Day 10

Clearly my streak is over. Missed a few days of blogs. I knew the first weekend would be full of Kenzai “no, no’s; with Fathers Day Celebrations followed by a golf tournament.

My diet has been tight since Monday.

Plan to run it fairly clean from here on out.


Belz- Day 7
Tbk0qj8p2vab9jstbuoq

Free cardio done, day enjoyed. Wouldn’t call it Kenzai complaint but It was fun.

Hope you dads out there enjoyed your Father’s Day.

Still batting 100%.


Belz- Day 6

A miserable rainy day in Rochester, NY. A perfect day and week of Kenzai.

Blogs- 6/6
Workouts- 6/6
Lessons- 6/6
Good jokes- 3/6 (50% is higher than my usually average, well pleased)

Hope everyone is enjoying your weekend.


Belz- Day 5

Master plan in full effect today. Walked in the door after a long week craving a beer. Even went to the beer fridge rummaging. Had I not worked hard the weekend before cleaning out the fridge I would have caved to the temptation.

Well done Jonathan, give yourself a pat on the back and reward yourself by begging a beer from the neighbors.


Belz-Day 4

Enjoying Kenzai approved carbs for dinner while I can. Unlike you skinny guys once the program is in full swing they only give me a glass of water and a stick of gum for dinner.

100% in play.

Lesson 4/4
Workout 4/4
Blog 4/4

Hope everyone is doing well.


Belz- Day 3

Good day. Slowly getting back into the groove. Late workout but got er done.


Belz-Day 2

Love being back in training. Honeymoon period for sure. Ride the wave while it lasts.

Best part, been doing the workouts with my son. He only complains about the jump rope.


Belz- Day 1

Looking forward to being on program again after a 2 month hiatus. Eating clean and daily exercise are always welcome after some time off.

Cardio remained strong with regular runs, pickleball, but did zilch resistance work. Have a feeling I am going to be sore in a few days.

That said I worked hard over the last few days to clean the house of all beer. If I can apply that work ethic to the next 6 weeks it’s just gonna be one hell of a program.

Will be good meeting all my new teammates. Let’s rock this.


Last 2 weeks didn’t engage with the workouts. Here are my final stats. You get what you put into it.

5 mile run- 43.31
Push ups-44
Sit ups- 62
Pull ups- 4

All around improvement so no complaints.


Nice recovery run today. Didn’t push it didn’t go slow. Cruise speed.

Startled 5 deer who jumped across my path running into the woods with their tails up. Shhhh don’t tell them I was startled too, shorts may need a good spin in the washing machine.

I can tell I am gonna like this challenge. Unlike the other programs I have done there is a goal outside of health and impressing the ladies with my six pack. (Lady- singular)

I like goals. My lady likes 6 packs. Lots to like about this challenge.

After I change my shorts it’s time to hunt down the other participants. You can run but you can’t hide.....,,,


End of Week 12
