This is my go-to program when I don't know what to do and when I still want results. My arms get CARVED when I follow this program as well as my legs. I do these as circuits - meaning I do one exercise and move onto the next completing all exercises and then repeat again for as many times as I can or have time for. Aim for 2-4 rounds depending on your fitness level and time. This is a 4 day split and you can use it however fits your schedule: Day #1 - biceps, triceps, shoulders Day #2 - legs & abs Day #3 - back, chest, shoulders Day #4 - plyo & abs You can do this every day for 4 days on, 3 days off. You can do them every other day. Or you can just do it whenever you have time to do a workout! Some of the exercise do use a cable machine but you can easily swap them out for dumbbell or band exercises. Just make sure you're working the same muscles or muscle group. I love this split because it is so flexible and can work for so many people.
Happy Wednesday!! Only 2 more days until the weekend! Time sure flies when you're constantly counting down to the weekend haha. I've become very busy recently with making plans during the week because I always feel so rushed on the weekend. As much as I like relaxing on week nights its also nice to get more done during the week. As of Sunday I've stopped calorie counting. I have a good grasp on what is what and what I should be eating and it's obviously not working for me because I still don't have the defined tummy that I want. I did some consulting with my very informational cousin who has her degree in nutrition and I'm still eating too many carbs. I keep forgetting that bananas and apples are carbs! I'm going to finish the ones I have and start buying more frozen berries. Costco has awesome bags of frozen berries so I'll be making a trip there soon hopefully. I haven't been able to fit in Insanity this week and yesterday I took a rest day. To
Okay, so here is what I typically eat in a day. It's definitely NOT the cleanest but it is better than what I was previously eating. This is what is helping me tone up but I'm not seeing the results I want yet so I have to cut out some more fruits, dairy, and breads/cereals. I usually eat a lot of the same things because it's easy to go grocery shopping and easy to prepare stuff. Once I get sick of these I will come up with other things to mix in my daily menu =) Breakfast (before I leave for work) 1/3 (dry) quick oats 3/4 c. unsweetened almond milk half a banana sliced on top (I keep the other half for my cereal at night) I mix it with the following (not all at once lol): raisins unsweetened coconut frozen blueberries and/or frozen raspberries/strawberries walnuts honey or maple syrup (sometimes I don't even add either of these in) 1/4 of an apple chopped into small pieces cinnamon cocoa powder so many options!!!
