Throw away the bathroom scales
Throw away the bathroom scales that make you feel sad (Joe calls them the ‘sad step’) when the numbers aren’t moving in the right direction. It can make you lose motivation binge on junk food and quit your plan altogether.
Talking frankly to Women’s Health Joe said:
“Don’t stand on the scales before or after [your holiday], basically don’t stand on them ever again. What’s the point? Because you’re only going to feel terrible.
“The weight is going to go up and it wont even all be body fat, a lot of it will be bloating and water retention.
“Instead stick to taking progress pictures at the start and end of each month with measurements (that’s a real marker).
“Because at the end of the day, we don’t judge people by how much they weigh. We don’t pick them up and weigh them do we? So, who cares?
“You are who you are.”
Planning is the key
Planning is the key to getting lean! So start by writing down all your daily meals, snacks and workouts. Write a shopping list so you can prepare your meals and won’t run out of good things to eat. It’s a good idea to bulk cook two or three meals at a time, just store in airtight containers in the fridge or freezer and re-heat when needed.
Joe uses HIIT training to help his followers burn fat. It involves short 20-40 second bursts of exercise followed by a 30-40 second recovery. If you repeat regularly for 15-20minutes you can wave bye bye to body fat!
Try the following:
1. High Knees – Like jogging on the spot but lift your knees as high as you can for 20 seconds, then rest.
2. Mountain climbers – Start on all fours with your hands planted in front of you, palms forward, now push one knee up to the chest, pumping hard, and repeat with the other knee, working for 20 seconds and resting for 40.
3. Burpees – Lay on the floor then use your arms to push yourself up and jump just a few centimetres off the floor, arms high then go back to first position. Repeat for 20 seconds, then rest for 40.
Repeat the circuit four-five times of for 15-20 minutes.
