How to lose weight after Easter
On holidays, I stay away from sugar and grains, but I do enjoy nuts, cheese, and my chocolate mousse that is made from avocado and unsweetened coco. As a result, I do get a little bit puffy the next day, and the scale usually shows a gain.
Eat right, and do resistance training to get back on track.
On the day after I, “Eat up,” I always make sure that I train, and I give my clients the same advice. There is some evidence that increasing the energy you take in once every 7 to 10 days can keep your body from adapting to to an energy deficit. If you train after this “Re-Feed,” there is a good chance that the energy surplus can be used to build muscle instead of getting stored as fat.
Yes, I’m a little puffy, but I’m going to lift anyway.
It can be hard enough getting into the gym when you’re feeling good about your body, but it’s a bit of a challenge to overcome the temptation to blow off the gym until the bloat goes away.
Please: get in there anyway!
Of course, another solution is to train at home. You can get excellent results with just a few pieces of equipment. Here is a training session that only requires a pair of 10 pound, and a pair of five pound dumb bells.
10 Total Body Extensions
10 Stick ups
10 Leg Swings per leg
Repeat entire circuit
10 Push ups
10 Dumb Bell Squats (use 10 lb. DBS)
10 Overhead Presses (use 5lb. DBS)
10 Glute Raises (use a 10lb. DB on your hips as you raise your glutes.)
10 Dumb Bell Curls (Use 5lb. DBS)
10 Bent Over Tricep Extensions (use 5lb. DBS)
Do these resistance exercises as a circuit for a total of 3 circuits.
If you need something even more challenging, may I suggest the the program that I use to make sure that I keep progressing?
It’s called the Venus Factor program and I followed it a few years ago with fantastic results. I have a tendency to avoid the exercises that aren’t my favorites, and VF solves that problem.
You can find the entire program at this link: ==>Click Here<==.
If you need modifications for any of the exercises, just e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay on track with your nutrition, get your training done three times per week, and expect a beautiful Spring.
See you in class,
