I will perform fit test and publish results today, hope it's not too late. Have to admit I panicked a little that I'm too weak to complete this mission and wanted to withdraw, but I immediately thought that with such dedicated trainer by my side and entire Team support I CAN. I will do my best. I'm so glad you are here with me Squad, XOXO Emilia

Emilia! This is SO good! I think you're a lot stronger than you think.... 37 push ups, get it girl! So happy you completed the fit test and stuck with it! Happy you're on the squad, we're here with you xx
Smiling! You did AMAZING... I'm really impressed with your first day scores! How was your second workout?
Mission accomplished, workout 2 completed. I feel like each and every part of me is BURNING, but here's the thing: your sense of humor works at me like a good music - it makes me wanna work harder, longer and better. You asked on Instagram what type of Trainer I am looking for - one of my favorite movies is 'KARATE KID', I LOVE Mr. Miyagi, because I find a little peace of me in him, I'm also a little bit mysterious and reserved. I'm watching this movie each year, kind off like we watch Christmas movies over and over again ;) When you mentioned him on Insta Live I knew you were my Trainer, so I will not question the usefulness of tasks you are giving me, cause I TRUST you and I KNOW it will pay off.
Finally finished my Fit Test today :)
Squat Taps - 35
Push-Ups (on knees, and not great) - 33
Lateral Hops - 162
Shoulder Press 1 - 29
Shoulder Press 2 - 25
Plank - 1 minute
Reverse Lunges - 18 ( I have bunions so its quite hard to bend my toes this way )
Bicep Curls - 25
Dips - 34 ( very short range on the feet though )
Mostly looking forward to improve my push ups and dips in terms of quality.
You should be proud of yourself girl! This is a great starting off point. The only way to get better is through repetition. Stick with me for this entire program and you are going to improve those push-ups in ways you never thought possible!
Welcome to the squad!
Here are my numbers - I need to improve my lower body strength, which is one of my goals. Even at my heaviest I still had skinny legs so building up muscle there is taking time (at least my butt has gone from Pancake to Small But Proud lol)!:
Squat taps - 40
Pushups (last 10 on knees) - 30
Hops - 130
Shoulder press (5lb dumbbells) - 55 total
Plank - 2 minutes (I can hold a 3 minute plank)
Lunges - 26
Biceps (5lb dumbbells) - 28
Dips - 40
You did awesome. If you want to improve your lower body strength you should do at least 2 of the lower body single body part workouts in between team days. Does that make sense?
Proud of you Eden... Lets finish week 1 strong!
So today we do a cardio PLUS our focus muscles, correct?
Also, I know I shouldn’t ask but I can’t help it. When is our cheat day? Not to say I’m giving in but I read in an article once where once a week is ok. Is that true?
You are correct, A+++++
haha! This is wayyyyy to early to be asking about a cheat day weirdo!!!
I'm training you to lead a healthier lifestyle. That means we have to take out all the unhealthy things and then slowly reintroduce them so you have time to form healthier habits. It's like when a little kid misbehaves and you send them to their room for 5 minutes. They don't learn the lesson. haha
Taking away unhealthy foods is going to teach you your triggers. What do you think when you want to grab something that's bad for you? Is it stress? Do you feel like food fills something that you're not dealing with so you think about punishing yourself for the food rather than dealing with why you're addicted to the food. Or do you just want a doughnut everyday... hahah
In order to break patterns we have to change what we do. Here's what I want to do with you. I want you to go another week with NO cheat meals. Then lets talk next Friday night about how you're feeling. I want you to get through two weeks of eating super well. How does that sound?
I will be doing my first Fit Test very soon! I watched the video to see what the moves look like and have a question. I have a full set of weights so am curious as to what you would recommend for the shoulder press in the fit test?
Currently I am doing 4 sets of 11-12 shoulder presses with 25lbs each.
I would use the 20lbs. And maybe in two days do the 25lbs just so you have two scores you could work to improve. Does that make sense?
Absolutely. Wasn't sure if the test should be with lighter weights for more reps. Looking forward to getting my Monday email!
Squat Taps - 45
Push Ups (on toes) - 34
Hops - 112
Shoulder Press - 2 sets: 12 | 25lbs 2 sets: 16 | 20lbs
Plank - 2 mins
Reverse Lunges - 34
Bicep Curls - 18 | 12 lbs
Tricep Dips - 38
Trying out two different weights on Shoulder presses per your instructions. I realized afterwards maybe it was one set of each. Rawr!
I love that you tried out two weights! It's totally ok don't worry! Just retest the shoulders this week! You're coming into week 2, Monday Kathryn?
It will be my first week on Monday - I probably did the test too early. Was excited to get going!
