Time to change things up. The average person does not have time to log 40+ miles a week. Nor is it necessary unless those are your goals. If you don’t like long drawn out cardio- don’t do it! Slow and Steady DOES NOT win the race. How long have you been spending in the gym on machines? They all have a place and purpose but can be used sparingly. Are you doing cardio for one steady rate of time without changing any factors? You’re WASTING your time. You’re trading your calories in an inefficient way. Start creating a serious DEFECIT to see a loss in fat. You must start doing higher intensities of intervals and cardio bursts. If that means running a mile and including stairs or bleachers, do it. If that means 20 box jumps, and 1:00 of jump rope in between your weight routine, do it! Jump rope is one of my my favorite ways to get the heart rate up. Try it out! I got 2 at Sports Authority so I can always have one for a friend, $7.99 each. Challenge a buddy, see how many sets you can do in 30 minutes! You’re done for the day.
Alright guys, who’s ready for 30 days of motivation, accountability, and fun?! For those of you joining me, here’s how it works:
You will spend 30 days working towards each of the daily 100 parts at your own pace! If you want to try any of these things on your own for the first time, add to you routine, or maintain a regimen while you’re on the go, this is the challenge for you! Record your daily totals in a journal or on your phone, and keep track of them from day 1-30. Take photos of yourself on day one and on day 30!
By day 30, I guarantee you will see HUGE changes!
1. If you already have cardio planned in your day-your mile counts into the equation,
– Walk a mile, or Run a mile, (If you have injuries, please consult your doctor to make sure the bike or elliptical is a safe alternative)
2. Pilates 100
3. 100 second plank-work up to this!
4. 100 pushups-spread them out in sets throughout the day, you can do these on your knees or on your hands and feet-
(ADD VARIETY, mix it up with tricep pushups too! You will also work up to these. When you start getting stronger you will be able to do all of your sets in one or two workouts.
