New season, new changes.
I’ve resolved to partake in a 12 week workout program! I really want to sculpt my physique more and that means I must hit the weights. In all honesty, this program will probably last more than 12 weeks for me seeing as though I have a birthday along with the usual holidays during this time period. I’m not so much worried about getting in the workouts, it’s my diet that will be cause for concern. Before the holidays hit, I am taking advantage of this time to be strict with what I eat, seeing as though the 80/20 rule is real! Diet is almost EVERYTHING. I really want to reach my goals so I must put in the work! Read this article in full to get a glimpse of where my mind is at for this challenge and also for more details. There are gems in here. I will be posting about my progress, meals and how I’m upping my protein intake.
I am almost done with Week 1! I’ve been doing a mash-up of: Lolo workouts, cardio classes, short HIIT routines, and parts of the Devil’s Workout in conjunction with this weight training. Wish me luck and feel free to join!
During weeks 1-4, you will be lifting in the 8-12 rep range. What this means is that you want to complete at least 8 reps but no more than 12 reps for each set. If you cannot complete 8 reps, then the weight is too heavy and you should decrease the load. If you can complete more than 12 reps, then the weight is too light and you should increase the load.
