Every once in a while I’ll personally put someone through the 12 day Fat X Program and post their photos and details publicly. I refer to this as a fat burning Fat X Project.
I like to take on skeptics or cases that are generally tough. I do this not only for motivation, but to give tips and tricks on how to make your run through the Fat X Program as optimal as possible.
For my 2015 Fat X Project I took on my friend Erika Woo. We scheduled the start of the Fat X Program for her the day after her overseas business trip. Jet lagged, sluggish and with a whacky workout schedule do to her busy daily schedule, we got through the workout program and these are her results.
Her workout schedule was less than ideal, some of her workouts were started late at night 10:00 - 10:30 p.m., others were started early in the morning 7:00 -7:30 a.m. and the rest of the workouts were sprinkled in sometime in between. Having a consistent workout schedule is ideal. In simple terms, it allows your body’s inner workings to prepare for the stress. Energy levels, both mentally and physically will negatively be impacted by inconsistency. With that being said, getting your workout in at an odd time is better than not getting it in at all.
Being well rested before starting the Fat X Program is also ideal. Even though the workouts are short, they’re highly effective for improved fitness and fat loss when you can devote the proper mental and physical intensity to them. Twelve days or so of fat burning Fat X workouts is no easy task and going into it fatigued will definitely cause some issues. Erika had just come back from an overseas business trip and I could tell right off the bat that she was jet lagged and these workouts were going to be a struggle to get through.
With the jet lag, fatigue and whacky workout schedule working against her, she still had the mental grit to get to and through each workout. As I advocate, and what makes the Fat X Program extremely useful, I took notes and stats of each and every workout. If you download the workout program, you’ll receive a workout manual that not only guides you through the exercise order, but makes it easy to track your stats. . The purpose is so that next time through each and every workout, you can set goals and hopefully surpass your previous numbers. As I tell my clients, improve performance and the aesthetics of your body will follow.
Here’s a quick list of things that I would suggest to Erika on her next time through the Fat X Program for even better fat burning and fitness results:
Start the fat burning program when well rested.
Get enough sleep.
Have consistent workout times.
Use heavier weight/resistance.
