Believe it or not...this is the first time I am writing and following my own program to get ready for an upcoming show. I know I've always had the ability before to do it...but I always liked the idea of being told what to do...even trainers need trainers!
I think what's different this time around is that I am training WITH my team...and not alone...and it's making a WORLD of difference. It gives me MORE motivation to work with them...and get through the crazy programs I put together. (Man, I can write some tough ones!)
So, today was leg day and it's the 2nd time running this leg routine. I wish I had my body bugg on me, because I would LOVE to see the calorie burn after this one. I wrote the program so that you're getting 7 different leg exercises in, plus 30 minutes of cardio...and it only takes about an hour to complete (not counting stretching after.) I know that sounds impossible...but the reps are high, the weight is moderate...and you definitely get the burn (actually this one gets you close to losing your breakfast/lunch!)
Last time I trained for a show I was putting in 2-3 hours EVERYDAY...and don't get me wrong...I looked the BEST I ever have looked...but not EVERYONE can dedicate THAT much time to a training program (ie; many of my clients) so I thought if I could design something and match it with a diet for those who don't have 2-3 hours per day...I would follow it too and see how it works. SO FAR SO GOOD.
Tomorrow, for me is cardio, plyometrics, and routine practice...I'm on my own for this...Tues & Thurs night I run 2.5 hours of class for my team (and other clients) and I don't usually participate.
Friday is Back and Shoulders...will be back then for an update...
My personal goal for November 14th is to be at or below my contest weight from last time...I have about 15lbs to go and less than 10 weeks...this is going to be TOUGH...but with everyone's support...I know I can get there!
Until Next Time!
