Woo hoo you guys- I’m so excited to be hosting my first ever giveaway!
Since the competition, I’ve been in a bit of a workout rut. My metabolism has slowed down and I’ve been getting bored with my standard workouts so it really was perfect timing when Vega contacted me about these free workout plans they’ve been working on. They came up with two different training options- an 8 week plan for Running and a 6 week plan for Strength and Conditioning.
So I figured hey, why don’t I change up my routine and try the Strength and Conditioning Plan? Especially if I was going to review it and recommend it to all of you I wanted to make sure I’d tested out the program myself! Now, having finished two weeks already and being halfway through my third week, I decided it was a good time to share my experiences and finally share this awesome giveaway with you all!
The Strength and Conditioning program is a very different style from what I’ve been doing for the past few years- I typically do isolated muscle groups whereas this program focuses on compound movements (a.k.a. movements that work several muscle groups at a time). While the movements are straightforward, they can be fairly complicated for a new lifter. With the training plan Vega provides a comprehensive booklet with descriptions and images on how to do them properly.
Being familiar with the moves and proper form already I jumped right in and started with the heaviest weights I could do in the number of reps marked (rather than starting lighter, as recommended in the first week).
Let’s be honest, by Wednesday I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I realized I needed to be more on top of my supplementation other than just my protein shakes. Hello Pre-Workout Energizers and post workout Recovery Accelerators! Thankfully by the second week my body started to adjust to the new routine. 8 hours of sleep has totally been helping too. Yay sleep!
I’ve also been working on cleaning up my meals and following the meal plans.
I’ve honestly been having tons of fun challenging myself the past few weeks (and have been posting about it all over Instagram and Twitter). Basically this program has it all and the best part is, of course, it’s absolutely free!
My goodness do I love free things!
