As I wrote earlier this week, I've started another tour of duty with the Fat X Program. The goal is to burn some fat I've accumulated in recent weeks, lose an inch or so around my belly and get Spring fit.
I'm on day 3 of the Fat X fat burning program and I completed workout 3 this evening. I wanted to share some tips and tricks through the first three days.
Diet wise, I've been finishing each day with a protein drink and a couple of fish oil capsules. I've also been concentrating on pre-preparing the following day's meals. And of course, I drink plenty of water, get in plenty of protein and eat my vegetables per the Fat X diet.
Workout wise, I've been concentrating on using the heaviest weight possible for each of the exercises. On day 1, I used a barbell for the deadlifts and packed on 185 lbs. Of course for beginners that would be heavy, but for advanced athletes that's a good weight. I wanted to mention this because some people I've talked to go a bit too light with the weight and don't get the most out of the exercises and workout program. In the videos I used really light weights just for demonstration purposes. If you're a beginner you're going to have to experiment a bit.
On to day 4 tomorrow and more fat burning, muscle toning, and Spring body gettin'
