Welcome to the 24-7 Commitment / 555 Fitness Fall 2015 Diet Bet!

All challenges and information will be posted in the DietBet Community you must have registered for here (it’s not too late to jump in…you just have fewer days to take advantage of the motivation and accountability!)

Also, be sure to sign up for our email list.  We will send a couple emails throughout this 4 week session to keep you on track.  And this is where you can claim your free prize for being active in the community.   Click Here to Sign Up

Here’s a little background on how these 4 weeks will work.  Remember this is all scalable and we encourage you to work out with or at least motivate and encourage your partner.  If you’ve never tried this, we’ll give you a little secret.  Working out together is a big turn on 😉

If these work outs aren’t enough for you, add on the 555 Fitness Daily WOD posted on their social media channels.

Our Weekly Format

Metabolic Motivation Monday We will be challenging your metabolic capacity to get the “burn” not only during your workout, but hours after. The harder you work, the more calories you burn from the workout, and the faster your metabolism will work the rest of the day.

Tabata Tuesday (2:1 Work:Rest) High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) will burn more fat in less time. This high-intensity interval training has more impact on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems. The basic formula for Tabata Training is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated between six and eight. The teeny-tiny intervals force the body to keep moving before actually it actually recovers from the previous set . So to get the full benefit, those 20 seconds need to be serious business working to the very last second – no cutting this workout short. After all, it’s ONLY 20 seconds. With the exception of the weighted movements, most of these can be performed anywhere, any time. All you need is a set of comfy clothes and a serious work ethic. To make keeping track of the time easier, consider downloading a Tabata timer app. Again, consider meeting with a trainer to go over correct form (even if you’ve previously done these moves) before starting a Tabata fitness regimen to prevent injury.

Weightlifting Wednesday –  Get into the Gym or find some weights around your house and get some heavy lifting in.  Strength training helps develop strong bones/muscles/joints/ligaments, reduce body fat, increase muscle mass, tone your body, control your weight and boost your stamina.

Thirsty Thursday (Rest, Recovery and Hydrate) Use today as a recovery day where you do something low impact like biking/swimming/walking/yoga, use today as a rest day and give your body some time to recuperate from the workouts you’ve done, or utilize this time to make up a day you missed this week.  Hydrating is also extremely important today AND every day, drink a MINIMUM of ½ your body weight in ounces a day. (if you weight 200 lbs, you should drink 100 ounces of water = ¾ of a gallon).

Fast and Fun Friday – Quick, No Fuss workout; this is meant to be finished in less than 15 minutes leaving you the rest of the day to get your house chores done (but we recommend spending some time with family and friends enjoying a well deserved Friday).

Saturday/Sunday FunDay – These will be partner workouts to do with your spouse/significant other/family member or friend.
