DEFICIT

Today is a calorie deficit day, meaning you should be consuming less calories than you do on a maintenance day. We outlined three options in your welcome packet; you can aim for any three that you wish. The goal is to keep your calories lower than you do on maintenance days in order to ensure weight loss success!

Strength & Hypertrophy Training

Strength training, like all types of training, has its own focus in terms of set and rep ranges. The two general ideas of strength training are to build functional and core strength and to promote more lean muscle tissue growth. These will allow us not only to perform activities more efficiently, safely and effectively, but will also build more metabolically active tissue. Let us make one thing very clear: strength training does not always mean you will build size and get bulky. That is a possibility if you wish to do so, but general strength training can build strength and promote lean muscle mass accumulation without making you bigger. It is, however, worth noting that muscle does weigh more than fat - so if you see a minor bump on the scale, it does not mean you are plateauing your weight loss. In order to sustainably lose weight, we must first boost our metabolically active tissue, and therefore our metabolism, with strength training. Each of the movements you will be performing are meant to be compound, functional movements. That is to say they will involve more than one muscle group at any given time and will force core activation.
