Body Earned Day 1 & a Glute Workout

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.

Be prepared for a sore backside a couple days after doing this :) Who else started the Body Earned Program today? How did you like day 1?

    1. Yes I will still do my WIAW posts, but there is an element to the meal plan that I will leave out.

  4. Hey Brittany!

    Started today and YES the workout looked easy but challenged myself and lifted heavier and it really did kick my butt!!! I also up my sprint pace too!! I would LOVE to see what your meal plan looks like during this program. Nutrition is ALWAYS the thorn in my side lol. Good job girl. I knew that somewhere in Arizona you were rocking this workout too and it gave me extra motivation :0). Glad to do this with a group.

  6. I started Day 1 today as well. I had quite the "glow" after the weights and opted to push it some more with sprints. Felt awesome! Lots of food ideas from you would be so helpful!

  7. I love having a sore behind ;) I just did a leg workout today and will definitely have major DOMS tomorrow! In fact, I still have pretty sore hammies this morning from the last leg session I did which was Thursday! HAHA!

    xoxo love you girl! You are going to rock this program! Cannot wait to see your progress!

  8. I'm still working on perfecting the squat (keeping my knees from buckling) so I can't go as low as what's featured in the pic. The workout is very similar to a lower body training day for me.

  9. I love to try this! Maybe I'll start as soon as he emails the program! Does it come with a nutrition plan?

    1. It does come with a nutrition template and a document telling you how to determine your calories

  10. Hey,
    So, for someone wanting to lose 100 lbs or more, would you recommend Livefit or James' program?

  12. Hey,
    I'm a college student and looking to gain some muscle. Technically I'm underweight and want to remedy that and get a lot stronger. I can't afford a gym membership. Is there a program or some exercises you could recommend for me to do at home?? Anything you could give me would be really helpful, I'm not sure where to start.

  13. I started James' program yesterday also but when I looked at the short circuit list I thought it'd be too easy...oh no no no, how wrong could I be! I really felt it working and although it was hard work, I felt great leaving the gym

    1. Hi B! I am looking over James Wilson's plan and I am 95% sure I will start his plan after I have completed week 8 of Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer (starting week 5 tomorrow and am loving the results thus far!), but I had a question for you. I notice that James' plan requires you keep calorie count whereas Jamie's does not. I've really enjoyed not having to "track" my caloric intake as it gives me an added sense of anxiety. So I'm wondering how you're handling that piece specifically. Thank you!
