I wrote a few weeks ago about how I'd be trying out Muscle Milk so just wanted to do a follow up and let you know how it worked for me! First of all, trainer Jen Cohen gave us a great workout routine to follow which included jump rope, lunges, planks, squats, pushups, burpees and more. You had to do each move for around 60 seconds which definitely keeps your heart rate up! I love these kind of routines and try to take classes at my gym that do these kind of routines but it's nice to also do stuff at my own pace so I'm glad I have this routine to refer to when I can't make the classes. She recommended to do this routine 4 days a week and on the other days to do 45 mins of my choice of cardio.
She also gave us a few quick tips to help us out and these are my favorite that I wanted to share with you:
- The secret to scoring a great summer body is to use and engage as many muscles as possible while quickly moving from one exercise do another. This makes sure your heart rate remains high, so you burn the maximum amount of calories in the shortest amount of time possible.
- First thing when you wake up drink a glass of water with lemon. This help detoxify your system and hydrate you starting as soon as you wake up. It's a great habit to get into.
- Eat every four hours to make sure your blood sugar doesn't drop. In between lunch and dinner would be a great time to include another Muscle Milk as an easy, on-the-go snack.
