September 9-15, 2018
This week, the trend continues of no sugar and no alcohol. Don’t worry, that hangry and irritable feeling from week 1 of cutting out sugar and alcohol will start to subside. Increase your cardio workouts this week for a little extra push!
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. No Sugar, No Alcohol. Keep up with the no sugar and no alcohol concept this week. I am sure last week you felt irritable and hangry since you took away something your body had gotten so used to. Your brain also primarily runs on carbohydrate; therefore, reducing the amount of sugar left your brain wondering what happened. Eventually your central nervous system will reset and you will be feeling much better.
2. 45-minute Steady State Cardio. Up your cardio game this week. Running, biking, rowing, swimming, and vigorous hiking are all acceptable forms of cardio. The big idea this week is to maintain steady state heart rate during 3 x 45-minute cardio sessions throughout the week. Steady state heart rate is that aerobic training zone that still leaves you able to talk a bit, but you are definitely working. We want you to maintain your intensity in your conditioning sets this week and don’t fizzle out at the end.
