I had a great response from Monday’s newsletter.
It would appear that many of you have left if to the last minute before your holiday this year to get in shape,
So the “one week last desperate attempt to shed some fat plan” went down a treat
If you missed this then catch up here <<<<====
BUT…I made a big mistake which was pointed out by two people and no doubt noted by several others…
I said to eat 75kg of carbohydrate when I should have said 75g.
Like a 1000 times bigger.
Now I know you all like carbs…I love carbs, but if you eat 75kg of carbs in one day, which so happens to be enough carbs for nearly 3 years…
…you will be more bloated than a pregnant water buffalo which is not a good look, trust me
That aside, a few people asked why I had a mix of low intensity and high intensity cardio in the plan
And why was low intensity cardio even there when I always seem to favour high intensity
If you are just working out once per day I would always favour high intensity over low, but if you are doing weight training on a given day it MAY be wise to stick to low intensity cardio to avoid overtraining and enhance recovery.
One more thing before I go.
I just want to clear something up.
There is no magical plan in getting in shape.
There is no silver bullet.
Often we get asked, “What is THAT person doing that I am not and why are they getting amazing results yet I’m staying the same”
The answer is so simple and plain that it almost seems untrue.
This is the answer…
* A mix of weight training and effective cardio, 4-6 times per week
* Lean protein, lots of green vegetables and healthy fats 4-5 times per day
* Limited alcohol intake
* Goal setting and belief you can achieve these goals.
There we go.
That’s the silver bullet.
