I remember when Lais ask me if I thought she could do it
What would she need to do?
Hours of Cardio?
Low weights and high reps?
She said "Cause I'm Willing To Do All Of That"
I said Great!....You need to be willing to do the work...but you don't need to do any of that...
We need to train hard, you need to make sure you are eating enough food for your goal, you need to be consistent and you need to be compliant...Do Exactly What I Tell You, You Should Do....Like A GPS, and you will get there
And so began her 1st 6 Month Prep, where she ate more rice than she ever had, she had Pop tarts every night, and simply went to 1 of our Bootcamp Workouts 5-6 times per week (PS...we will be back in Miami next week for 3 Days of Bootcamp)
And she lifted weights, heavy weights, she trained hard and fast...Kettlebells and Dumbbells...Bands and More Bands...no fancy gym equipment...we trained exclusively in our 2500 SQF Facility and there were NO special workouts for her...she participated in the workouts we held everyday
So that shows you....it's not a specific exercise...it's continuous exercise, from different angles and different tempos and consistency
Don't skip this, she trained her a$$ off...don't think you will get there with a mediocre attempt at it...hard, tight muscles are a response to hard training.
What Else Did She Do?
Why didn't everyone get the same result?
Well...The Food...She was in Proper Energy Balance EVERYDAY
She ate the right amount of food everyday without exceptions
And no...not egg whites and brown rice and fish (even though there is nothing wrong with that if you like that)
But she ate all the things she enjoyed...we ate out, she had pop-tarts, wine, white rice everyday, she ate at 9pm...never fasted, never did extra cardio, never said no to going out to dinner
But it was the correct amount of EVERYTHING for her and her Goal...not what her Mom ate, not what her sister ate, not what the girl at the hair salon or nail salon ate...
The correct amount for her, and she had to be patient to let it happen, and she had the let the process play out...
Yes, she would wake up and think "This isn't going to work" or
"This isn't going to happen" or "I should cut this or that or so more of this and that"
and so many more things...
But she didn't...she didn't really have a good reason other than lack of patience, she could not articulate a valid reason...so she was left with no choice other than trusting the process, trusting her Coach (me) ....yeah...it's not easy...I'm sure she trusted my ability, and knew deep down I knew what I was doing, but like most of you
wanted Results yesterday and thought (based on nothing) it should happen faster
In the END...she did the work...she stayed on the path...she trusted the process
And The Results
