21 Day Fix Extreme. The first 10 days!

Here we go. I'm going to take you through this 21 Day Fix Extreme journey with me! As I start this program, I'm terrified. Because last time I attempted it, I quite before I even got halfway through because I "wasn't seeing the results I expect." Which is a LAME excuse & a punk'd out way of saying, I wasn't giving it 100% and wasn't trusting the process. So here we go again. Attempting what I didn't finish last time.
Day 1- Plyo Fix Extreme
oh em geeeee πŸ’¦πŸ’§πŸ’¦
this is LEGIT. I swapped Upper Fix Extreme & Plyo this week because I literally couldn't sit down to pee without hurting πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it was better today, so I went all out πŸ’ͺ
 love love love this workout even though it seriously kicked my booty!!
Day 2- Upper Fix Extreme
now my arms hate me. its a never ending cycle. but I'm embracing the pain and growing stronger with each passing day. LEARN TO LOVE THE BURN πŸ’ͺ🏽
Day 3- Pilates Fix Extreme
the one piece of equipment I hate the most, HAS to be this darn red resistance band. I'm not flexible as is so putting my body in some of these positions is seriously hard for me! But I push through and do it with the best possible form I can!
This is one workout I typically never take my shirt off for. Only for the embarrassing factor called my stomach. These moves expose your belly no matter how much you think you're sucking in. But today was different. Today I FELT strong. And looking back, I AM stronger than when I attempted this program about 5 months ago.
Strength takes time to build. NEVER give up.
Day 4- Lower Fix Extreme
Leg day is always my favorite thing ever! But this leg day is no freakin joke. I used 12# but thinking about bumping up to 15's next week 😳

and seriously yall, this new Performance Line is my favorite thing about working out

I have NEVER seen my body change so much so quickly. I hope that's a good thing 😳
Day 5- Cardio Fix Extreme
I usually blow through most cardio workouts. I've been so cardio focused my whole life because it's ALL I knew with playing soccer for 15 years of my darn life! Run, run, and run some more.
But let me tell you, today I got my butt kicked.
Seriously though. Adding weights into cardio is just pure torture. In a good way I suppose. especially weighted jumping jacks. Lord bless my body.
Day 6- Dirty 30 Extreme
Total body torture. That's all I can think πŸ™ˆ
But LORDY I feel amazing after this workout.
4 rounds,2 moves each round. BUT there's single side moves in each round. So that means you have to do the same thing on each side. Tricky tricky Autumn. ;)
Totally one of my favorite workouts, but definitely the freakin hardest!
Do what you think you can to get the results you want!
Day 7- ABC Extreme
(supposed to be Yoga Fix Extreme, but I subbed)

 As you can see, today WAS supposed to be Yoga Fix Extreme but I swapped it.
And you can fuss and yell at me all you want saying "you need yoga. You need flexibility. You need a slow day" and my answer to that is STOP IT ✋ I HATE yoga. I can't do it. I've tried many times. I don't want to like it. It bores me. So I swap it. 😏

ABC Extreme is BADASSSS! I love it. It focuses on abs and butt, which is what I need πŸ˜† therefore, WEEK 1 is DONEEEEE

Day 8- Plyo Fix Extreme
Feeling like a total badass today!
Went up to 12's for my heavys and 7's for my lights. Next week my lights will definitely be higher since I barely used them! 
 I ate awful this weekend. Tried to stay in line with my meal plan, but that failed after I was stuck at a banquet Saturday night and didn't get to eat till 8:45πŸ˜‘

But it's a new week. Another chance to improve and kick some grass! πŸ‘ŠπŸ½
Day 9- Upper Fix Extreme

I'm just going to say it again. I HATE ARMS. they hurt and I suck at them. But on a positive note, I actually see some definition popping out in my biceps & triceps😳

I don't know how people can say they hate leg day and love arms. That's just pure craziness!

Day 10- Pilates Fix Extreme

 And my 10 day results are in! I refuse to step on a scale, take measurements, or anything because THAT is what derailed me last time.

it's time to trust the process and accept everything for what it is! <3

  1. Cardio is a Waste of Time for Fat Loss

    While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
