Chisel is in the books. And this shit works! The final workout was a nice glimpse of how far my fitness has come in 42 Days. I crushed it and considered imploring my lovely to do a 2nd cycle, but I was afraid she might never speak to me again.

My fitness is booming - on the bike, on the courts, and in a workout. I could still dial down my body fat a bit, but doing so requires a pretty complete commitment to hermitude. That said, I've seen some nice gains in terms of my biceps, chest, quads, calves, and belly. My surgically repaired left ACL/knee held up like a champ. One legged burpees were a blast!

I'll always be swimming upstream in terms of my DNA, but I've gathered plenty of "Dude, you are in monster shape this summer" to make Chisel more than worth while!

Cap tip to Patrick for snappy, succinct lessons, and workouts that blend a little fear with a whole lot of fun! I love training alongside my wife. She is a pistol and a peach. Wait 'til you see her final photo: https://kenzai.me/belinda/blog

Now, my house demands my attention. Interior and exterior painting, landscaping, and building an interior wooden sliding door will be my cross training for the next few months.

The Kenzai big wigs will be rolling into town in August for some Maine fun. I'll continue to mix in Iron (x2) and Chisel (x2) workouts in maintenance mode in case those punks want to hit some workouts with the mistaken idea that they can keep pace with the 'Stache. #goodtimes #tonguemostlyincheek

I'll be back for another pass at Chisel in September and Reach in January. Of course, there might be a new program or two come then...so as my homie Klaus says...plans are for shit. I'll just take it a day at time.

Be well, Chiselers. Can't wait to start handing out those COMPLETE stamps and CHISEL badges.

Ward, there ain't a lot of fat left on that frame, and very nice biceps.

        Awesome post Ward, a testament to your strength of will and character. Great results also "for a guy swimming against the current of genetics," lol. Don’t forget, the strongest fishes swim upstream, Fish can confirm this!

        What a way to put Chisel together after Bellz 2, a match made in heaven! Happy haircut also!! Indeed this Kenzai shit really works!!

          Thanks

            Mad ’stache skillz!
            @GymMat: yes, they swim upstream, then spawn, then die. Not a bad way to go...

                Well done, bro. I really enjoyed another program together. This one was indeed awesome and possibly a new favorite for my short attention span. Bells-Chisel-Bells-Chisel-Reach-Bells-Chisel, etc as a life plan? Hmmmm.

                It's a nice time of year in the Northeast to feel and look fit. Enjoy it!
