MAY 2013 Get In Shape for Summer (con'd)

Hi Everyone! This month’s May 2013 rotation is the continuation of my “get in shape for summer” plan. It focuses mostly on explosive cardio and interval based workouts to keep the metabolism stimulated and in fat loss mode. I will also use STS Total Body and the GYM Style workouts as the main weight training sources to build muscle over this next month. Between building lean muscle mass and burning body fat you’ll be well on your way to getting Summer Fit.

Remember that high levels of activity burn more calories and the more you burn the hungrier you will feel. Nothing wrong with eating extra calories to support your active routine but eat the RIGHT foods. Some examples are to chop up veggies and dip them in a seasoned Greek yogurt, eat low sugar fruits like berries and granny smith apples, eat lean protein sources, and have a whey protein shake after a workout. Avoid simple sugar foods, junk foods, foods in boxes like cereals, pasta, hamburger helper mix ins, also avoid excessive dairy products and high sodium foods. DO DRINK WATER and SLEEP 7 to 8 hours a day!
These changes won’t all happen overnight but make a few every couple of weeks and by June you will Super Lean and Summer Fit!

The only one that I don't have is GS Legs. I have most other leg WO's, so, what would be a good sub?

GS legs replacement

Cathe's new XTrain Leg workout is great, but then all the leg workouts are intense. The STS leg workouts are gym-style as well. I have to admit, I LOVE the Butt and Gutts DVD. So basically, I'd say put out all your Cathe leg workouts on the floor, close your eyes, and point to one. You can't go wrong! ;)

Hi Debbie!
(I don't think I've ever talked to you on Cathe's forum before, just on Facebook :D )

That's probably a good idea to close my eyes and point... I have all those that you mentioned along with Legs & Glutes, Pyramid LB, and more that I cannot remember!

I'm starting the rotation on Sunday or Monday; will you be doing it, too?

thanks!

wow

Wow, looks like a great month. I will be in Europe for most of the month but hope to buy some downloads that don't need weights so I can have my Cathe fix now and then!
