On to day 2. Day 2 will have us working with anti-rotation training which hits your abdominals and obliques as well as the shoulders and arms. Then we’ll work on the hip flexors and what we refer to as the “lower abs” with some variations of leg lifts as well as some sprinting.
Here are some more tips on how you should be eating. I’ve never been a fan of diets, I like building healthy eating habits that you can adapt for the rest of your life. Here are some of those habits that can help you.
1. No refills: Most dinner plates are sized similarly. 1 plate should be enough for you especially if you’re doing 5 meals a day. In fact, I’d recommend using salad plates which are slightly smaller. Filling this up should give you enough for 1 meal.
2. Pack your meals: If you’re in work for the majority of the day, I suggest bringing meals instead of buying food from fast food joints.
3. Plan your meals for the week during the weekend then go to the grocery before the week starts.
Here’s the workout for today:
Anti-rotation series – You can do this with exercise bands, or with a weight and a bench or an exercise ball
We’ll do 10 on each side rest for 1 minute then repeat for 3 sets.
5 seconds, rest 30 seconds repeat for 5 sets.
This will be the first of many interval trainings. It’s important to warm up properly before you start with sprints. Sprints work your hips and obviously your legs a lot and the last thing we want is a pulled hamstring this early in the program. Follow the warm up properly as well as the cool down.
