DO THESE PROGRAMS REQUIRE EQUIPMENT?
If you do have access to some equipment from home such as a dumbbell, kettle bell, or set of booty bands feel free to add this into your workout for extra resistance.
I have created programs which require Equipment and are gym based.
CAN YOU DO THESE WORKOUTS FROM HOME?
Yes! My Home Workout Guide can be done from Home or a Gym as it requires NO EQUIPMENT. My Gym Based Workout Guides Part 1 & Part 2 have been created to be done in a gym-based environment so equipment will be required. Some exercises can be completed without equipment/weights as the exercise itself is challenging enough without adding weights. If you are just starting out I would recommend trying the exercises bodyweight first prior to adding weight.
IS THERE A WAY I CAN TRACK WHAT I EAT?
My Fitness Pal is one of the top rated apps to track what you eat in a day. It is super easy to use and is a great way to know how many calories you are eating each day. I don't count my calories or macros but for someone just starting it is a great way to get more of an understanding of how many Carbs, Fats, and Proteins are in a certain product.
I try to stick to buying whole-foods e.g. Fresh fruit and vegetables. Usually, If it’s in a packet most of the time it’s filled with a lot of additives that we are unaware of.
IF I AM FEELING TIRED IS IT OK TO SKIP A DAY?
Regular rest is crucial. It’s all about listening to your body and adapting to the change. Don't be so hard on yourself if you wake up one day feeling sore and feel bad for skipping a workout. Your body’s overall health is so important so if you feel like you need a rest day then you probably do!
This program is designed to increase your training each week. You will notice I have allowed for rest days throughout the program but if you need more listen to your body and take it.
CAN I SHARE MY RESULTS?
Of course! I would love to hear and see your results throughout the program! Send all results to my email firstname.lastname@example.org or tag me on Instagram @alyssahigham
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TRACK MY PROGRESS?
I have found the best way to track your progress is by taking regular progress pictures, and weighing yourself. I feel photos of me are the best way to keep me motivated and on track as I love to see how far I have come.
