I was right...
Yesterday I was wondering just what Igor Klibanov, my "Body Transformation Specialist" had in mind for week 2. I had a feeling that Igor was going to ask me to do 2 sets today and I was right. Can you say JELLO! I felt like a giant blob of Jello when he was done with me.
BUT... I did it!
I asked Igor why I was required to cut out coffee and not green tea. His answer was that coffee affects the adrenal glad (the gland that secretes adrenalin). This gland then affects other hormones in the body too, such as cortisol. Green tea on the other hand, although it contains caffeine has other benefits that outweigh the effects of the caffeine. Green tea, which originates from China, contains poly-phenols and catechins which can improve your health. In addition Green Tea is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids.
Here is proof that I am actually pushing (or here I am pulling) weight.
The workouts are tough, but I am loving it!
