Wired up for a six-pack week #3 and #4

In case you don’t remember: I’m on a mission. I’m swapping that ten-pack of beer for a six-pack. In just six weeks time. If only it weren’t for those stupid setbacks.

Things aren’t going too smoothly. No sir. In fact, things have been rather rocky! What am I getting at, I hear you say? Well, firstly, there was that lumbago, which I had to treat with one week of no sports, sofa time and Netflix instead of deadlifts.

Wired up for a six-pack # Week 2

Just when I started to feel better, I had to hand over my «Compex SP 8.0 WOD Edition» for a shoot. The thing is, we only have one of these babies at Galaxus 😋. So that was another week wasted. Now the device is back and what can I say? So is my lumbago. Not quite as bad as last time but still. There’s no way I can work out even half-way decently. Thank goodness the Compex has a lumbago mode that helps me keep the pain in check:

But it’s not working out. And let’s be honest. This is not what a six-pack looks like, right?

No six-pack
six-pack

I’d say we’re dealing with a stagnation or maybe even a setback in the ab department:

16.08.
02.09.

This puts me under a lot of pressure. After all, I’ve only got two weeks left. At least the next product test has arrived just in time. Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be strapping on a little black device: the Phantom Training Mask. And expect it to take my workouts to the next level.

OK, my crazy eyes are even creeping me out. But I did have a bit of a scare when I saw my reflection. But, according to the manufacturer, this gadget is supposed to work wonders.

The Phantom Training Mask is the ultimate boost for your conditioning – your stamina and power will be stimulated. The Phantom Training Mask assists you in sustaining longer, conquering your limits and by that reaching a higher level of conditioning.

Well that’s just what I need to make up for that lost lumbago time and make my belly fat melt. If this means mutating into a cyborg then so be it. May the mission advance!

But seriously: When my six-week six-pack story is up, I will draw my first super-subjective conclusion. And then I’m taking my Compex SP 8.0 WOD Edition to a professional. After all, I don’t want anybody accusing us at Galaxus of carrying out unscientific product tests!

Leider hat weder Krafttraining noch dieses Gerät einen Einfluss auf ein sichtbares Sixpack. Ich empfehle eine Anabole Diät (carbs<30g/day) etwa 1800kcal kombiniert mit 2l Grüntee pro Tag, dann wirds was mit dem Sixpack in 6 Wochen, easy.
