Wow, I am constantly amazed when I go to the gym. I love to people watch and I get a lot of that in while I am there.
I see all kinds of people getting in their fat loss workouts: young and old, men and women, knowledgeable and inexperienced.
It is the inexperienced people that drive me crazy. Those that come in street clothes, walk on the treadmill for an hour, or lift light weights and thinking they are making a serious contribution to their fat loss efforts.
Unfortunately, it is often women who are most guilty of spending all of their gym time on the treadmill walking away and watching TV or if they do lift weights, they are swinging around a pair of pink 2 pounders.
Isn’t the gym personnel supposed to be there to guide these people? Or don’t they know any better themselves?
Don’t they know that to get any sort of after burn we must exercise with a high intensity?
Don’t they know that they need to do this with challenging workouts of resistance training and high intensity interval training, such as kettlebell swings?
I swear, if I see another set of little pink hand weights being used for overhead presses outside of a physical therapy clinic I am going to freak out! And I might just start showing the whole damn place the right way to workout for fat loss.
Anyway, I’ll get off my soap box now.
Ah yes, today’s workout.
Now remember, I told you last week about my plan to motivate you to not gain weight this holiday season. The plan is to show you that it can be done and involves me not only NOT gaining weight over the holidays but me losing 3 lbs by Dec 31.
Here is the workout I did today at the gym. Got a little messed up because of a dumb guy that wouldn’t give up his equipment in between sets.
Set 1. Romanian deadlifts and incline bench press 3×10
Set 2. Bulgarian split squat ———————————————————————————>
and calf raises 3×10
Set 3. Overhead press and dips 3×8
Set 4. Rows and back extensions 3×10, 3×8
Set 5. SB rollouts, SB hip extensions, SB jacknife 3×12
I did each exercise within each set one right after the other with no rest. After the last exercise of the set I rested for 1 minute and repeated the set 2x.
I rested 1 minute in between each set.
So, I am well on my way to meeting my Personal Holiday Fat Loss Challenge!
Tomorrow, another one of my famous fat loss workouts for home.
Leave a comment bellow and let me know what you are doing to meet your fat loss goals this holiday season.
