There was a girl at the gym that appeared to be following a plan on her phone, so I asked her what it was. She told me about this training plan. Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer. I had looked at this before, but didn't realize that it was such a complete system, for free.
This plan includes a food list, workouts, and meal ideas.
The first 4 wks are just lifting. NO CARDIO AT ALL!
You lift 4 days in a row, different body parts, and then have 3 days rest.
You increase lifting days during the first phase, but she gives you a gradual build up.
The exercises all have pictures and or demos, so they are easy to figure out.
*The only downside is that most of the exercises require a gym. She does have an at home workout on days you can't make it to the gym.
Phase 2-- Lifting and 3 days of cardio, lifting and 4 days cardio, legs-- 2x a week. Only 1 rest day.
Phase 3--Lifting supersets with active rest. Again, great pictures and info for each move. The cardio is steady pace as well as sprints 30 sec/30 sec rest.
The meal plan doesn't seem too difficult. Just healthy eating, lean protein, high veggies, water, good carbs. The regular stuff we know and choose not to do. The workouts are laid out for you so there is no guessing. If you are new to lifting, I think her plan would be an easy way to learn basic lifts. Bodybuilding.com is a great resource in general.
I'm going to do her leg routine tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Has anyone else done this program?
