T.U.G Fitness Challenge Spring 2011, Week 1

Today we're leaving behind our crazy eating habits and committing to working out on an almost daily basis. Now of course many of you are already hitting the gym 6 days a week, benching 350, walking around swole or lean (whichever you were going for), and you eat damn well for your fitness goals… well, if that's you then maybe you can go even harder during T.U.G's Fitness Challenge Spring 2011. Or even better than that, you can comment/tweet/facebook about your fitness goals, eating habits, and personal workout routines to help others with similar body types and goals. 

So here's our T.U.G Fitness Challenge Breakdown again

1. Commit to one or more small fitness/health change

2. Maintain a daily routine of "quicky" morning calisthenics

3. Complete our focused weekly workouts to Lose Fat, Build Muscle, or Combo (lose fat and build muscle)

LSU graduate, former athlete, and fitness trainer Starvos will be bringing us weekly workouts to burn fat, gain muscle, or both for the next 3 weeks. He knows a little about it all as he went from a 300+ pound lineman, with essentially no definition to a trimmer, body-building fanatic during college. 

His workouts are straight-forward, easy to learn, and don't require going to the gym… so you can easily complete them at home–check out the first workout below. But first, lets go over this weeks Health Change. (Since we started the first week midway through, I'll make the first health change rather easy…) 

WEEK 1 Healthy Change: No more fast foodSo no more #1's, 2's or 3's… if you have to eat out make it Subway, Quiznos, Smoothie King, or something along those lines. Yes, many fast food joints have "healthier options", but for some people it's too tempting and they end up ordering a grilled-chicken sandwich PLUS an order of large fries. So don't even tempt yourself… either cook at home, eat at a restaurant that offers many healthy options, or make the local sandwich shop and smoothie joint your "new fast food" spots.
