Tweaks for Better Results

I hate it when I see people totally abandon their workout program
when they hit a plateau or think it’s not working.  Most of the time,
all it takes are a few tweaks.

This is really important when you realize you found a program you
really enjoy, too.  Don’t give up your program just yet.  Use these
tweaks to get the most out of your workouts:

Tweak 1
Switch just one starch for a non-starchy vegetable or protein.  This
alone can cut 200-300 calories daily.  See what that does after 2

disgusting.  Try recipes like this instead:

Tweak 2
The next thing you can do is switch to single limb exercises.  So
instead of a DB Chest Press, you would do a Single Arm DB Chest Press.
Do all reps on one side and then switch.This is also a great way to work your abs.  Do a 1-Arm DB Incline
Chest Press while keeping your other hand on your abs.  Aim for
6-8 reps.  You will feel your abs working hard to stabilize (good

And finally, you can increase the intensity of your workouts by
using challenging finishers that use major muscle groups instead
of usual interval training.

Here’s a new one I tried with a client last week:
“The Power of Tres” Finisher

Do the following circuit 5 times, resting for 10 seconds between circuits:
1) Lunge Jumps (3/side)
2) Chin-ups (3)
3) Prisoner Squats (3)
4)  Mountain Climbers (3/side)
Alright, start using these tweaks to improve your workout intensity
and bust a plateau. After all, it’s April.  Beach season is quickly

Boom goes the fat-torching dynamite.

Start this week strong and finish strong,
