The below figures are my results from Day 21 of Pentamize maintenance mode.
October 9 74.9 kg (60 minutes of a mixed workout; lost .1 kg)
After a mixed 60-minute workout with about 30 minutes of pretty light running, I lost .6 kg. That put me down to 75.2 from 75.8. But I still have to finish a meal and have some water. So we’ll have to see where this ends up. Well, it ended right back at 75.8 kg. And it’s 8 at night. So I might gain a little by morning. However, I had lost back down to 75.5 kg by bedtime and lost .6 kg during sleep. So the 74.9 kg in the morning was just a tad better than the October 8 weigh-in of 75.0.
You will see on Day 24 that I actually decided to get a little more intense on my mixed workouts. Up to this day, I did a lot of the mixed-workout time on an elliptical machine. But when I tested this machine one day, I found that I lost virtually no weight at all despite doing the elliptical for 30 straight minutes. I am moving away from that because it seems like a waste of time.
Below, I am going to give you the individual and average results for my 2 mixed sessions since starting this maintenance-mode blog. But it is way too early to start drawing any conclusions. Without giving you all the information from my book, I can say that you have to work pretty hard in a mixed session if you expect to lose weight. The danger of it is that you will go too easy. It’s also really hard to get into shape to do weightlifting, calisthenics, and similar exercise. You are going to get really sore, and some people hate that.
Yes, it is true that if you look at only the first 2 days of mixed workouts, they are running better than full jogging days so far. But that is likely a hot start more than anything else. One bad day could wipe this out. Nonetheless, the only bad thing so far is that I clearly gain weight when I don’t exercise at all. Thus, it’s just not going to be possible for me to even maintain weight without exercise. At least it seems that way and backs up what I learned during full weight-loss mode.
