How to lose weight after Easter

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.

Warm up:

10 Total Body Extensions

10 Stick ups

10 Squats

10 Leg Swings per leg

Repeat entire circuit

Training:

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: 9catherine9@gmail.com

Stay on track with your nutrition, get your training done three times per week, and expect a beautiful Spring.

See you in class,

Catherine
