Here’s the LAST week of workouts! Feeling accomplished as I got my body back after having my second baby!
Like last week, with the stress of two kids and the holidays I skipped my cardio which resulted in my not 100% hitting my goal.
Here are my stats:
Went from 130 lbs to 118 lbs.
Total fat lost: 12 pounds.
My goal was to get to 115 lbs but I am definitely close enough and feel great!
Below is the final week of workouts.. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to send me your transformations!
Monday – Workout One
Tuesday – Cardio
Wednesday – Workout Two
Thursday – Off
Friday – Workout Three
Saturday – Cardio
Sunday – Off
Each workout focuses on a different rep, rest and tempo range to accomplish a few things:
Workout one will focus on muscle damage with full recovery. We will do this with heavy loads. Make sure to lift as heavy as possible with proper form and increase the weight used over the next three weeks.
Workout 2 will focus on high reps with short rest period to burn a lot of calories and boost your metabolism. Expect to feel a big burn this phase!
Finally, in workout 3, you will be lifting heavy weights with a slow eccentric component. Eccentric stress creates a lot of muscle damage, which is critical for maximizing muscle growth. We are not trying to look like men; don’t worry, I want to create some sexy calorie-burning muscle only.
We don’t have the testosterone to look like men so push hard and see some amazing results.
We’ll end the final week with a few metabolic style workouts around the holidays to BURN all those extra calories we will be consuming.
