Met with the trainer at the gym today – his name is Jace. He’s an air force veteran and was fairly well built. He recommended a lot of body weight exercises, and pushed me through a few planks and scissor kicks, as well as showed me how to set up speed intervals on the treadmill. He didn’t touch the weight machines at all, which is kinda good, as I’ve heard good things about body weight exercises and not so good about machines. He recommended things like planks, push-ups, lunges, squats… he also said if I wanted to I could continue using the 30 minute circuit, as it’ll focus more on upper body workouts. Jace recommended the body weight exercises 3x/week, and the cardio on the alternating days. Also recommended watching my diet, as it’ll be a key portion of my weight loss. I think if I keep this up, and fight through any plateaus, I should be able to reach my goal of 41 lbs lost.
