MAINTENANCE

Today is a calorie maintenance day, meaning you should aim to eat exactly the number of calories outlined in your welcome packet. We recognize how eager you may be to lose weight and think the fastest and most effective way to do that is to continue eating reduced calories. If we do that, our metabolism will slow too greatly, resulting in unfavorable results. Be sure to keep your calories up, but not above this number – otherwise, we will start to gain weight.

Muscular Endurance Training

Everything we have done so far has been to prepare us for this stage of the program. These workouts will be all about boosting our metabolism, losing fat, and fortifying our muscles. High reps, lower weight, less rest and A LOT of body control. That’s the name of the game. Your workouts going forward will be the most challenging yet, forcing you to breath and sweat more so stay hydrated! With the new circuit and interval training you are about to begin, it is important that you pay attention to good form throughout. You will experience quicker fatigue with these exercises, which will influence you to compromise on your form. Do not allow yourself to do so. Getting our heart rate elevated and a good sweat going is very important, but as always the most important thing to focus on is avoiding injury. Keep good form and your core engaged (and pick a great playlist)!
