https://designandscheme.com/2017/08/08/college-fitness/

Alright everyone, 

for those of you who didn’t know, I was asked to do a guest blog for a friend about college and fitness – preparing high school seniors for college and freshmen college students for what is to come. I share some nifty tips and advice and give you some real world examples of what temptations will lie in the way and share some personal experiences as well. I hope that not only will you support this blog post and share it among your peers, but that you will take the time to check out her blog as a whole because it is also speaks on time management skills. Thank you for your support! leave feedback in the comments!

Week One|Day 4| 6 week Cut program

FitFam!

Hey everyone,

I have some pretty fun news for all of you who have been keeping up with my blog and enjoy my fitness/health post. I have started a new cut program with a fellow YouTuber; we will be doing video updates talking about our results and point of views every Friday – my video on Friday will talk about Mon-Thursday since Fridays I work and my Monday videos will talk about my Friday,Saturday, Sunday results to keep everyone informed on the whole week. She will be posting the video first and then I post the same video on my channel. We have our differences during this program; she will be following a more paleo macro diet.. because she is vegetarian and after watching the program videos feels as though it would best fit this program and I will be following my new macros – which I will share with all of you down below (but will not being eating paleo). Basically, after my first program I did that was 12 weeks long, she contacted me with questions and I made the decision to do another cut with her since she was new to it and it was easier to do it together than to explain everything since there is so many things that go into a cut depending on your fitness level and goals. 

 

She chose the program herself, after doing some research and came up with https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/jim-stoppani-six-week-shortcut-to-shred.html; which I agreed upon after looking at it. Then we decided that instead of doing it for only 6 weeks, we would do it twice for a total of 12 weeks because she wanted a longer duration. She started 4 days ahead of me because of my busy schedule, and being behind on looking through the program, so she will have more to say than I will sometimes but that is okay and hopefully we will both be able to help others and motivate people and just come out with some good results at the end. Her YouTube channel is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB8r-myh5iyDB5uNms_56yQ & MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL IS: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAIrhf0FpxoQk4F_bznTjIg

So with that being said, watch both of our channels to keep updated on our results and to show some honest support. Feel free to follow us on social media, subscribe to our channel and follow my blog because i will be posting the videos on here as well. 

Today’s Workout

Warm up: 2-3 minutes of jump rope

 
  1. Incline DB Flys: 3 x 12-15, 20 lb.  (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: jump rope)
  2. DB flys: 3 x 12 -15, 20 lb & 30 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: bench step ups)
  3. Cable Crossover: 3 x 12-15, 40 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: squat jumps)
  4. Triceps Pushdown: 3 x 12-15, 70 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: box shuffle)
  5. Standing DB triceps extension:3 x 12-15, 40 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: kettlebell swings -8kg)
  6. Cable lying triceps extension: 3 x 12-15, 30 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: goblet squat – 30 lb)
  7. Crunches: 3 x 12-15. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: running in place)
  8. One arm high pulley cable side bends: 3 x 12-15, 20 lb. (1 minute cardio acceleration after each set: lunge jumps)

All in all, definitely a good workout. I have to use really low weights during the cardio acceleration portion because the point of it is to do it for the whole minute without stopping and the cardio acceleration takes the place of the rest time you would usually have between sets. Definitely a good idea and helps with implementing cardio and strength. Warming up before your workout is very important in this program. I am hoping to blog my other two workouts for ya’ll to see that did in the previous days. Also, I plan on blogging all my workouts for you guys (sometimes I may be late in doing so depending on my work schedule) and sometimes I skip workout days due to having other obligations so those days I won’t be able to log obviously.. but I will do my best to keep everyone posted on each of my workout days. The link to the program will explain what our expectations are each day we do our workouts .. so that might be fun to read and learn about. Again we are hoping all of you will be supportive of our journey to getting shredded  — feel free to leave comments or questions, I will leave my social media media and email at the bottom of this post. Thanks for reading!

5 Ways to stay Motivated

  1. Make goals: simple, smart and realistic goals
  2. have a social circle who motivates you to do well and doesn’t discourage you
  3. Reward yourself for your progress: You deserve it!
  4. Use positive words: “I will, I can, I won’t give up”
  5. Go your own pace, don’t make it a race against someone else, because we don’t want you to feel left behind, we want you to feel like you did better this time vs the last

I know this sounds all too simple, but with motivation is discipline and you need both to make the best out of whatever you do. If you follow these few steps, you will start to see some positive changes within yourself 🙂 Good luck!
