How are you feeling, Fitness Jumpstarters? Did you enjoy last week’s HIIT workout? It’s pretty awesome to feel like you’ve squeezed in a complete high intensity workout in only 10 minutes isn’t it? This week we’re going to be using a few new videos to add some variety into our workout routine including an excerpt from my favorite workout DVD, The 30-Day Shred with Jillian Michaels.
WORKOUT PLAN: For each day shown, complete the listed exercises at least once (note: if you are able, repeat each cycle 2-3 times to maximize results) and walk/run for the stated amount of time. This week’s workout incorporates run/walking. For these workouts, run for 90 seconds followed by walking for 60 seconds. Repeat the run/walk cycle for 30 minutes.
WEEK FOUR WORKOUTS:
30-Day Shred with Jillian Michaels, Level 1
Fat Burning HIIT Workout
10-Minute Beginner HIIT Workout #2
WEEK FOUR DINNER MEAL PLAN:
This week’s meal plan is packed full of delicious dinners that will fill you up with plenty of protein and fresh produce.
In Week One, I mentioned that Week Four would include a quick weight check to make sure that we’re on the right track. Remember, muscle weighs a lot more than fat, so it’s natural to see noticeable visable changes in your body before see changes on your scale! At the end of Week Four, record your weight so that you are able to chart your progress.
In Week One, I also introduced you to the Smart Scale, and now that I have been using my scale for a few weeks, I can tell you firsthand that it is SO AWESOME! Seriously, I never thought that I’d be this excited about a scale, but the Smart Scale’s high tech features do WAY more than just measure your weight! The Smart Scale also tracks your goal weight (and recommends a daily calorie allowance), body fat, total body water, and muscle mass. Plus, as if all of that wasn’t cool enough, the Smart Scale also syncs with many popular fitness apps (I use My Fitness Pal) to do all of the record keeping work for you! Simply set up your tracking profile, and the Smart Scale + the app will record and store all of your statistics each time you step on the scale. See, SO cool!
