With the chirping of the birds and the warm breeze comes the hot sun with Spring well underway and summer coming upon us. While this means we can put away our winter coats and jackets, it means we’ll crack open our summer and spring clothing. But that is when reality hits most people who have been ignoring their diet and weight loss routine over the winter months.
“What? These can’t be my jeans, I can’t even do them up!” – a popular occurrence for anyone who had a little too many holiday treats back in December. And with only two months until summer is coming, there isn’t much time to get that body back that you’ve been ignoring for 6 months. Luckily, there is a new weight loss program by Autumn Cabrese, a well known fitness and personal trainer from Beachbody called the 21 day fix extreme and reviewed by many popular fitness bloggers, it is thought to be one of the most effective workout programs of the year. It’s the sequel to the original 21 day fix program but the workouts are more intense than ever and require more hard work and persistance. The workouts consist of both strength training and cardio so that you are working your entire body from head to toe. After doing a few of the workouts myself as a trial basis, I couldn’t believe how sore my butt and legs were after doing the weighted squats and lunges.
What is so amazing about the program is that it also includes a detailed nutrition and diet guide that you follow in addition to using color coded portion control containers so that you aren’t over eating. When you are careful with your diet and eat only the amount of containers you need per day, you won’t go over and your weight loss will remain consistent.
The diet allows you to eat plenty of healthy grains, lean meats, fruits and vegetables and also ensures you are getting your healthy monosaturated fats found in things like almonds and olive oil. The 21 day fix extreme workout isn’t recommended for beginners but if you do decide to invest in the program, make sure you take your time with all the exercise and don’t over exert yourself. Only use the weights or dumbbells that you are comfortable with. If you feel serious strain on your muscles, continue with the workouts without weights and just use your body weight. Also make sure to stretch before and after the workouts to avoid your muscles getting tight and preventing you from doing more of the workouts late on.
If you follow the diet and nutritional guide of the program, you’ll have success in no time. The 21 day fix extreme workouts are designed to work your upper and lower body, burn fat around the mid-section and help make you firmer and leaner in the shortest amount of time. You only need to dedicate 30 minutes a day for three weeks to see some remarkable changes. Give it a try and let us know how your results are. I for one am excited to finish the entire program!
