Meet my friend and former business school classmate, Brandon! During a Twitter convo last week, I learned that he’s about to go on an amazing vacation to Tahiti on April 16th!
Since, I LOVE “beach ready” workouts AND many of my male followers have been requesting some “dude focused” plans, I thought this was perfect timing for my 1st official “get right for the summer” workout plan #OperationTahiti.
Brandon’s #OperationTahiti Goals
Add 7 lbs of muscle and get back to 170 lbs (currently at 163 lbs)
Get back to an 8 pack and tight core
Tighten upper body (chest and arms) definition
Restore base of strength in shoulders, back, groin, quads, hamstrings & calves
Improve cardio endurance (not my favorite thing in the world)
Brandon’s GRIT by Brit Workout Schedule
A few things to note about Brandon’s workout schedule…
This is ~2 week workout and diet plan which requires training 2 days on and 1 day off, alternating.
All of the cardio workouts are in red text, strength is in blue text and abs are in gray text
I tried to incorporate 3 days of cardio each week
I want Brandon to lift as HEAVY as POSSIBLE during his strength workouts
Here are links to detailed GRIT by Brit workouts included in his schedule:
It’s Summer time – yeah buddy! This week I’m headed out on the ultimate European summer vacation to Monaco & Italy with some of my best friends, including Jan from the 4-week Tone Up Challenge! I know I’m supposed to be chill and modest and “act like I’ve been there before.” But let’s be honest, I haven’t, and I’m SUPER excited!
Packed up and ready to go – saved room for my workout toys!
So, knowing that I’m going to be completely immersed in all of the European ‘fabulousity’ I’ve planned ahead to ensure that I keep up with my workouts. Did you know that it only takes 48 hours to start losing your cardio vascular endurance? It’s true!
Below is the workout schedule that I put together. All of these workouts can be done in my hotel or outside, so there is NO EXCUSE for me to skip. I’m packing my trusty Tae-bo workout video, a jump rope and one set of resistance bands. My goal is to work out 8 out of the 12 days and to multitask by working out/site seeing when possible.
Wish me luck – I hope I can stick to this. I’ll keep you guys posted while I’m away and send some pics too. Have a great week 🙂
