Friday night and I am home and bored so i decide to monitor FIT TV. What a major mistake that was. I tuned in to Hollywood Celebrity Body Challenge(?)and was appalled. Have these trainers not bothered to take any continuing education since they were "certified"? This is worse than the things they do on "Biggest Loser". Meaningless "strength" work, promotion of cardio and all the excuses why they are too busy to work out. Everything with one exception was gym machine based and isolation exercises. I did not see one intense workout I thought was meaningful. No total body exercises, no compound exercises, nothing which would produce meaningful results. Lots of crunch type ab work but not a one plank or side plank or any other form of core work. the weight losses at six weeks were less than a pound a week.
I so wish I could have an opportunity such as this to see if what I advocate works for everyone. I know that those of you who have asked for workouts and followed them are making progress but my ego wants the challenge of the exposure.
End of rant, off to bed now.
Keep working, keep sweating and keep being pleased with what you are doing for yourselves and the ones you love.
