October Fitness Challenge Guidelines & Tips
- Follow our “OctoberFIT” Workout Calendar, all workouts will be linked to their source every upcoming week, so make sure you bookmark this page!
- Rest at least once a week, feel free to add 1-2 additional recovery days as needed (more isn’t necessary better, you want to focus on the quality of your workouts and pushing yourself during each session). If you decide to workout 3-4 times a week, make sure to balance out your training program, you don’t want to end up doing 3 upper body workouts consecutively.
- As you know, diet is a huge part of the equation when it comes to getting in shape and seeing quick and lasting results, no matter how hard you train and push yourself, if you are not fueling your body properly according to your specific goals, you might get disappointed with your results.
Here are a few suggestions to get you on the right track:
* For a 30-day Clean Shredding meal plan that comes with recipes, guidelines, grocery lists, and additional tips and tricks to drop off that stubborn fat and get into the best shape of your life, I recommend grabbing a copy of “The Body Fuel System” created by my fellow blogger Bree!
- To get an idea of how many calories you should be consuming on a daily basis depending on your unique goal (fat loss, maintenance, etc.), go ahead and calculate your daily caloric needs to get an estimate
