Staying lean through December 

As you may have experience recently – this time of the year is a little tricky in making sure you train 3,4, 5 times a week.

There are work parties, family parties, catching up with old friends, eating more treats at work and home.

Basically, a disaster for your body shape.

This makes it even MORE important to TRAIN.

It doesn’t have to be your usual 3, 4 or 5 workouts a week.

2 or 3 workouts will be more than enough for you to keep maintaining your body shape through December, and STOPPING the additional weight gain.

When you do have a workout, you must make sure you are training HARD to burn the extra calories consumed and keep your metabolism firing.

Use the following back up plan if you’ve only made the gym once or twice;

Try this simple body weight workout at home, getting plenty of volume (sets x reps x weight) in;

Squats (10 reps x 10 sets – 10 secs rest in between sets)
REST 1 MINUTE
Push Ups (10 reps x 10 sets – 10 secs rest in between sets)
REST 1 MINUTE
Sit ups (10 reps x 10 sets – 10 secs rest in between sets)

That’s it – it should take you no longer than 15-20 minutes.

Make your training and getting to the gym a PRIORITY over the next couple of weeks otherwise you will be playing catch up for a month or two next year!
