Today was day 1 of James Wilson's program, so far so good! As many people have said, the circuits look like they're going to be on the easier side, but when they are done with heavy weight and high intensity they really kick your butt! With cardio, we were in and out of the gym in about 45 minutes which is always a plus especially because my meal timing has changed with this program so it gives me extra time after the gym for breakfast. If there is anyone that has purchased the plan and needs help with meals or has any questions please don't hesitate to send me a message and I'll do my best to help. To prepare for the program I did a good amount of food prep yesterday; cinnamon swirl protein bread, carob chip banana coconut bread (recipe to come later this week), turkey zucchini burgers, beef burgers, grilled salmon and grilled veggies.
I'm super excited to see the results of the next 12 weeks-- it looks like people are having great results so far and unlike phase 3 of the LiveFit trainer, the whole program is balanced and something that is maintainable over a long period of time. Even though I'm starting this program, I promised to share my version of Amanda Latona's booty workout so here it is!
1. Squats- 4 x 15-- make sure you're squatting deep to target those glutes!
2. Lunges using smith machine- 3 x 15 each leg
3. Leg press with feet close together and high on the platform 3 x 15
4. Glute machine 3 x 15 last set is a drop set
5. Hip abductor machine 3 x 15-- do these sitting at the edge of the seat so your back isn't it.
