Easter Workout Top Tips

13th April 2017

Here are some small tips to get you through the Easter weekend without going off your training plan too much!

  • Set realistic goals. One or two pounds a week maximum is doable. Top weight-loss programs advocate stopping after the first 10 pounds and maintaining that loss for about six months before trying to lose any more. Doing a lot of high intensity workouts such as HIIT and other short burst sessions will help to burn that excess gained from the Easter bunnies gifts! 
  • As the saying goes: the only bad workout is the one you didn't do! Rest days are extremely important but try not to not go overboard or squeeze in a short, high calorie burn workout to help shed those extra calories quicker! 
  • If you don't have access to a gym this weekend, why not try this 15 minute HIIT workout in the comfort of your own home!
  • Another example of a HIIT workout, this time using small weights and some gym equipment...

Fun Fact and something to consider, for every standard sized Creme Egg, you will need to do 15 minutes running or one hours walking to burn it off! Now think about what you need to do for those extra large eggs that have extra treats inside?? 

However, we all just need to:
Relax! Some people binge when they’re stressed. A Yale University study found that women who secreted the most cortisol (a hormone released during stress) ate the most high-fat food after stress. The combination of cortisol and insulin prompts the body to store fat in preparation for possible starvation — just what you don’t need. If stress has a stronghold on your life, try learning yoga, meditation, or simple breathing exercises.

Most importantly, ENJOY the Easter break!
