My Vegan Fitness Journey – Training Programme

I can’t believe I’m sat here writing a blog post when its a beautiful and sunny 23°C day. If this doesn’t count as dedication, I don’t know what else does.

Just kidding, lol.

As I mentioned in my previous post, my main goals are to lean out (burn fat) and hopefully build some muscle. I am aware that I won’t be able to achieve both things at the same time.


Fitness experts suggest that you need to eat less (cut) to burn fat, and eat a lot (bulk) to gain muscle. I am going to be eating intuitively so I don’t know if I’ll necessarily be in a calorie deficit or excess. I’m just going to allow my body do what it wants with the food I give it.

I’m not trying to become a body builder or anything of the sort, I just want a healthier, toned body.

The Training Programme

The programme I will be following is a 12 week programme based on BeachBody’s Insanity Max 30 and P90X3. I found the original programme online while searching for hybrid BeachBody programmes.

After previewing all the workouts, I decided to swap one workout (“The Challenge” in P90X3) with another from Beachbody’s T25 Gamma.

The Challenge consists solely of pushups and pull-up. First of, my upper body strength is not great at all. Secondly, who really wants to do only pushups and pull-ups for 30 minutes?

Certainly, not me!

I know that doing the workout will help me improve my upper body strength. But, I also know that I won’t enjoy it at all. And, I’ll probably just end up half-assing the workout or giving up half-way through.

The best thing for me was to swap The Challenge with another upper body workout that is just as challenging, but more fun. So I chose “Ript’Up” from T25 Gamma to replace it.

Without further ado, here is the 12 week programme I will be following:

I don’t think reasonable changes are visible before 4 weeks on any fitness programme, so I will stick to providing monthly updates.

Here is what I look like right now:
