WEEK 4

 

Week 4 is here!! Be proud of yourself. You have given your body the time of its life by providing it with all sorts of vitamins, minerals and healthy & clean food.

Things will get easier from now on. Your body has already got used to the new plans and will now start to use fat as a source of energy. Very important to stick to the plan to find out what is the combo that works for you the best; more cardio, more heavy weight or 50-50.

On week 4 the emphasis will be on cardio, week 5 is 50-50 cardio and gym workouts and week 6 is more about heavy weights and less cardio.

When you stick to the plans 100%, you can find out during the next 3 weeks what kind of a plan works for you. Great chance for you to get “tools” for the rest of your life! We are all different and one plan does not work for everybody! Regarding macronutrients (the amount of carbs, proteins and fats) there is not much difference between the 3 next weeks. This way you will be able to find out what kind of workout regime works for you when consuming very little calories, yet healthy and nutritious food.

This week you want to make sure you are consuming the correct amount of calories and macronutrients. Very important!! We want to be as precise as possible, so make sure you are following the plan 100%.

If you having any kind of joint pain, make sure you are performing the moves right. Always keep your core tight when exercising to avoid straining the back. When squatting, make  sure to keep your weight on your heels instead of the toes to avoid straining the knees. MSM powder will help with joint aches if tendency to get these sorts of aches.

 

Try finish the rounds as quick as possible. Only rest between the rounds. Rest as long as you want to, everything between 30 and 90 seconds is fine.
The workouts provided here can all be done either home or at the gym. For the home workout you need preferably some dumbbells. When barbell is stated on the plan, dumbbells can easily be used as a substitute.
