I never thought I would say this but I am really so glad that these holidays are over and family has finally left. Today, I had my real first day of my life back to the normality.
In this past two weeks I couldn’t exercise the way I usually did and I wanted, although I enjoyed the family visit and have spent time with them visiting places I never did before, my plans where to exercise every day or at least 4 to 5 times a week and get the most use of the surplus nutrition that was inevitable during the Christmas and New Year period for muscle gain instead.
Likely I never give up on my cardio routine, this helped to prevent the fat gain and today I am counting only 2 kilos of gain. I am sure the most of this is water retention so I guess that I will be totally back on track in a week or 10 days.
How you have overcome this holiday season? Have you been able to don’t gain weight and remain on track? How much have you gained in weight?
Let me know in the comment.
Every time a year end we always set new objectives and goals, but why don’t remain on the same goal and make it even better. 2017 has given to me the fitness foundations and I am ready for a new challenge in 2018 that’s why I have decided to add to my weight training also this new discipline “Les Mills GRIT”.
Les Mills GRIT is a 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, designed to improve strength and build lean muscle. This workout uses barbell, weight plate and body weight exercises to blast all major muscle groups.
When it comes to The Grit series, the variety of the challenges, timing, blocks and compound moves makes it a one of a kind HIIT exercise, possibly even the hardest yet. The workouts, divided into three formats, Cardio, Plyometrics and strength target different athletic needs for the body. By combining strength, jump training and speed, you get to achieve the look and performance of an athlete. We all know power without speed is heavy and slow, speed without power is a good cause for breaking bones, but a combination of both is what makes the athletes and these are some of the benefits of HIIT, specifically here The Grit series.
- Rapidly improve strength
- Increase lean muscle
- Set new fitness goals – then smash them!
- Put your metabolism into overdrive, burning calories for hours after the workout
- Forget hours of training – 30 minutes is all it takes
