Your fittest, leanest, happiest, healthiest year has arrived!
This challenge is going to be the start of your best year yet and I’m here to help you every step of the way.
I’m committed to helping you fall in love with weight training as you see how it transforms your body, elevates your attitude, and skyrockets your confidence and self-love! I’m determined to show you how enjoyable and effective the LG Meal Plan can be at helping you accelerate results! I’m coming at you from every different angle to make darn sure 2016 is YOUR year! Let’s go, girl!!
Here at LG.com, we break down the body into muscle groups and target specific zone(s) each day to ensure we’re working each muscle deep enough to break down those fibers ((remember…. when we break down our muscles and allow for proper rest + recovery, it is actually a good thing and part of the process to seeing results))
We’re serious about a sculpted, defined body + hitting each muscle group this way ensures success!!
For your planning purposes, I’ve outlined this week’s schedule below!
WEEK 1 FITNESS SCHEDULE:
Monday: Legs + Glutes
Tuesday: Shoulders + Abs
Wednesday: HIIT Cardio + Core
Thursday: Biceps + Triceps
Friday: Chest + Back
Saturday: Steady State Cardio
Sunday: Stretch + Meal Prep
^Remember, this is just the schedule outline for you to plan your #LGGymDate The actual workouts will be posted each day right here at LaurenGleisberg.com
#LGGymDate = the planning Each night, take a look at your schedule for the following day. Just as you would schedule an important appointment, find time in your day for your workout. Ask a community member to hold you accountable at that time and do the same for her!! You will see where it’s easy to set up these dates and accountability each night when I post the preview video on Instagram!
#LGSweatSeshSelfie = the follow up When you follow through with that gym date, share it! Upload your post-workout selfie using the hashtag and prepare for the support and celebration coming from your LG community members!!
- Resistance band ((home)) or cable machine ((gym))
- Jump rope ((or act super cool & just go through the motions ;))
- Kettlebell ((dumbbells work as a great substitute)
- Barbell ((optional – for heavier lifting if desired))
Get ready for it, girl… after we weight train to sculpt and strengthen, we are jumping right into body weight resistance intervals to shred and reveal those results. The lean portion of our workouts are used for: 1) muscle burnout 2) cardio incorporation 3) endurance + VO2 max training 4) abs +core
It may look like 2 workouts, but it’s really just two parts: 35 minutes total! These workouts are strategically timed- if you give those 35 minutes everything you’ve got, you’re going to be burning fat and building muscle all day long!! Thank you HIIT + EPOC 🙂
The LG mission is to ensure you’re feeling as good as you look with results inside and out! The Grateful Heart, Happy Girl daily Instagram photo challenge from Fitmas has officially been extended!
