Week 1 of LIIFT4 - What a Surprise!

Monday, September 03, 2018

HIIT TrainingAll I have to say is, WOW.  LIIFT4 has taken me completely by surprise.  Seriously.  I've talked AT LENGTH about how Hammer and Chisel is my soulmate program.  I've done it more than any other program; I've built most of my strength through it; I love Autumn Calabrese as a trainer.  It's the program I always come back to.

Imagine my surprise when I found myself falling in love with a new program in the FIRST WEEK!  I'm not ready to call it my new soulmate - yet, but if the program continues in the same way over the next seven weeks?  It's not out of the question.

Each week has the same "formats" of workouts:

  • LIIFT 50/50  –  Start by lifting heavy and hard for serious muscle-building.  Then empty your tank with HIIT cardio to torch calories, burn fat, and get cut.
  • LIIFT INTERVALS  –  Fast and furious weightlifting intervals that will build and define your body, punctuated with intense burnout rounds of high-intensity cardio to get you shredded and keep your metabolism working overtime.
  • CIRCUIT  –  Straight-up classic weightlifting that focuses on building one major muscle group at a time, with minimal rest.  This keeps your heart rate up, your calorie burn high, and your body ripped.
  • HIIT  –  HIIT it and quit it in an all-out cardio workout that burns massive amounts of calories and shreds the fat in an explosive 30-minute meltdown.
Here's the surprising part:  even with all that HIIT?  (cause you KNOW I hate cardio)  Every workout flew by.  Flew.  I mean, the HIIT sucked; I won't lie.  But it went by so fast that it was bearable.

There's one other thing that's surprising to me.  I lost weight this week.  I lost weight working out 4 days.  Three rest days.  And eating just as much as I was with Hammer and Chisel.  I really am excited to see what the next 7 weeks bring!!

I'm putting together my next journey group now.  Are you looking to shed some weight or maybe step up your workouts?  Are you looking for some more free time in the week?  I'd love to chat with you about this program.  Message me using the messenger link, or fill out the form below.  I look forward to working with you!

One last thing:  I've committed to sharing my week-by-week results in pictures over on my Instagram account.  If you're still not sure about what I'm doing, follow along!
