T-Shirt Ready Complete

Another 4-week program completed!! Really liking the addition of these shorter programs to the Kenzai offerings. As I said previously, the dumbbells had been collecting dust the last several months, so it felt great to get a full use of them these past 28 days! Iron-Boot is just what the body needed. I liked this one far better than Beach Ready.

I put together a personal ranking of programs I've done to see where I'd put this one. First draft has it at #6. Be curious how this list evolves:

Completed (as of Aug 2019)
1 Iron
2 Run Half
3 Chisel
4 Body 3
5 Kettlebell 2
6 Blast: T-Shirt Ready
7 Kettlebell 1
8 Run-10K
9 Body 1
10 Run
11 Ski-boot
12 Mind
13 Blast: Beach Ready
14 Body 2

Not Completed Yet
Reach
Sculpt
Reboot
Marathon

That's 14 programs completed, and now with Marathon being added this month, that leaves 4 programs still on the To Do list. Not sure which one I'm going for next, maybe marathon as I have a running event in October so I'll be running the rest of this summer and into the fall anyways. This completes back-to-back-to-back 16 weeks (Run; Beach Ready; T-shirt Ready), so what's another 16 weeks?

Man, you are on fire badge-master! Can’t wait to tackle T-shirt Ready in October, already recruiting the Dream Team like Fish and Martin D. Congrats!!

    @Jim, October? Come on, that's two months away. What program you doing before that?

      @Matt: a couple of trips to Colorado and Wyoming...mountain climbing program!

        I love the list (and damn you’ve done a lot of programs!!).
        If you really liked Chisel and are working on lower body for some running stuff, I found Sculpt to be great.
        Surprised Body 3 is so high (all I learned in 3 was how to count to 21!!!) while Body 2 is so low. Found that the workouts in 3 just took so much time relative to the returns.
        Congrats on the back-to-back-to-back 16 weeks!

          Haha... the Badge Master. I am a “badge collector” too. The only ones I have not done is Reach, Mind which I try to think that I am already doing a lot of those. Run is one that have never dare to conquer but am starting to think about it (trying to think whether Singapore is a good place - less pollution, more space... or worse - the heat!). Which left Kettlebell 2 which is the only one that I cannot fit into the schedule yet. My plan is to take on KB3 again in Sept but considering my crazy life ahead maybe shorter programs are better. I guess I have few days to think. Let me know your “movements”.

            Oh look at me and my 14 badges!

            Surprised/not surprised Ranger Eggman prefers Wifebetaer over Mankini but #13? BURN! Mankini is my #1! Followed by Chizz and the Deuce....Sep/Oct looking like a back to back BLAST for Da Fish so will see how that shakes out...
            Great job on the ‘beater, though gotta question anything that makes Wolverine put his shirt back on...

              Good to see IRON at the top of that list Matt! Well done on leading from the front on T-Tastic! Congratulations - COMPLETE!

                    Can't believe you have the beach ready so far down your list - horses for courses right? I'm taking on the t-shirt from Monday so can't wait to have a crack at this iron-boot.

                      Nice list

                      What is it about KB2? odd, so little applause

                      Good to her you t shirt review - starts Monday for me

                      Go Team go

                        @Jim, ahhh...mountain climbing program first! Enjoy. Looking forward to seeing it on IG.

                        @David, yeah Sculpt has been on my to do list for a bit to see how it helps with running and riding. Just not offered as often. One of these days though. I liked Body 3 because it had a variety of challenges...Body 2 felt like 3 months of jump rope and exercise monotony.

                        @Cora, we're getting you (and Jim and Sharm) on run one of these days!

                        @Fish, Mankini is your #1?!?! You're biased to flaunting your Borat side is all.

                        @Burnsie, Iron was awesome...even if during leg month I didn't voice those exact words!

                        @Ward, I'm sure we'll both still be here once they allow us into Silver to complete the badge list...

                        @Alastair, thanks man!

                        @Robin, horses for courses definitely. I think I'm in the very small minority that wasn't a Beach Ready fan...it's a popular one for sure. I think you're gonna love T-Shirt. Different than Bells but gets that metal swinging vibe going for 4 weeks when we don't have the time for 3 months of Iron.

                        @Watson, yeah Body 2 just didn't do it for me. It was simply a bridge to Body 3. Curious what your list looks like for all the courses you've done since the original days around here.
