Week 1, Video 3

 

Keeping it simple today but efficient. Good ol’ sprint intervals.  If you can make it out to a track with a friend that would be ideal if not work with what you got:).

 

With our sprint intervals the goal is to go as fast as you can and then recover within the  rest portion. It should be max effort every time… Make sure and keep your time for each individual run and post it. Your i-phone timer works great for laps. Today we are not looking for consistency just all out effort. Eventually we will look for consistency in your split times.

2 rounds of 

10 Dynamic Squat

10 Lateral Lunges

25’-50’ Knee Hugs

25’-50’ High Knees 

25’-50’ butt kickers 

25’-50’ High Kicks

 

Beginner:

5x 200m sprint (about 2 blocks or 1/2 lap on track)

Rest 2- 3 min

 

Intermediate:

7x 200m sprint (about 2 blocks or 1/2 lap on track)

Advanced:

Nutritional Tips and Recipe

Nutrition Tips and Recipes to promote a healthy weight

Week 1 Challenge: Eat breakfast daily

 

    The first question I ask someone who comes to me wanting to lose weight is "How often do you eat breakfast?". We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but why? For one, it jump-starts your metabolism which is ​key for promoting a healthy weight. Breakfast can also promote a healthy weight by preventing overeating later on in the day. Our bodies run most efficiently with all the essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, fiber ect. Skipping breakfast is losing out on a opportunity to make sure that you are optimally fueling your body, which will be very important in establishing your upcoming exercise regimen : )

     Breakfast doesn't have to be a large meal or even include the typical "breakfast foods". What's most important is eating something, even if just a piece of fruit, within 2 hrs of waking. No appetite or nausea in the morning? Try a fruit smoothie! Below I've include a couple of healthy breakfast recipes. Have a great week!

        Here is a little something from our very own Jex Luther:

 

 

Here is what I have to share:

 

I want to start by stating that I am not a nutritionist; I am just an advocate for healthy eating. Nearly a decade ago I decided to live a vegan lifestyle. It was a personal choice, and one that has grown with me through the years. I still do not eat meat or dairy, but I raise my own chickens and use their eggs and have started to partake in locally sourced honey. I will be sharing with you some recipes that I use in my mostly vegan life. I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to ask me any questions! I’ll answer them to the best of my ability.

 

I am a huge believer in snacks! One of my favorite recipes is an Oatmeal, Banana, Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookie. It is super easy to make, like super-duper easy.

 

4 mashed ripe bananas

1 cup quick cook oats (I use quick cook steel cut, cause I like the texture)

¼ cup chocolate chips

 

Optional:

¼ cup protein powder (I have used several plant based protein powders- Vega chocolate is my favorite right now)

¼ cup peanut butter (the natural stuff is the best)

2 Tbs chia seeds

 

Mix well, use and ice cream scoop (about 2 tbs) to scoop onto a cookie sheet and cook at 350 for 15-20 min depending on your oven. Keep refrigerated.

 

Depending on what you add to it will change the calories. 2 cookies is typically under 100 calories.

 

Enjoy and snack on!
