10 MINUTES OF WALKING, JOGGING, OR ELLIPTICAL FOR WARM-UP

STRETCHING

SPRINTS

  • 7-Up 7-Down

    • This is done across the width of the field/court. You sprint across the field to the other side. Stop and rest for 10 seconds. Once your 10 seconds are up, you sprint to the other side and then back, going across the field a total of 2 times. Stop and rest for 15 seconds. Once your 15 seconds are up you sprint to the other side, back, and then back again, going across a total of 3 times. You do this all the way up until you have gone across the field 7 times adding 5 seconds to your rest period each time.

    • Going down (7-down) you start at 7 times across the field and go all the way down to 1 time across the field, subtracting 5 seconds off your rest period each time. Your first rest period will be 40 seconds.

OR

  • Sprint intervals” on the elliptical, bike, or track. I do not recommend sprinting on a treadmill but if you prefer treadmill intervals, please do so at your own risk.

DAY 4

24 Hour Fast + Active Recovery Day

 

24-HOUR FAST FOOD GUIDELINES

If you are fasting, you will consume nothing but water or herbal teas. If you are taking any supplements give your body a break for the day.

HOW TO DO IT: FAST

After you’ve enjoyed your last meal for the day start timer for 1-day fast (yesterday). Drink lots of water or herbal tea when you feel hungry (can add lemon to water). Once you reach 24 hours (today), you’ve made it! Have a smaller meal to break your fast.

If you are breastfeeding, you do not need to do the 24hr fast! Do a regular macro day or low macro day (if you have a good, established supply and you know low macro days do not effect your supply)

GUIDELINES

  • Consider a trip to the sauna

  • 60 minutes of low intensity cardio. Walking, biking, swimming, elliptical, or an exercise of your choice. Keep your heart rate in the fat burning zone.

  • Stomach vacuum with a twist: 5 sets of 20 twists (10 on each side)

  • OR Yoga
