The Workout: Lower Fix EXTREME
After the intensity of Plyo Fix EXTREME, I was pretty nervous about what Lower Fix would have in store for me. I have to admit I panicked a little when I saw there was more squatting and jumping… with weights. But compared to Plyo, this workout actually wasn’t as bad as I feared. My legs were definitely screaming by the end though! The format for Lower Fix EXTREME is 30 seconds with weights, followed by 30 seconds without weights. So for example, you’ll begin with 30 seconds of lunges with weights, then you’ll drop the weights and do front kicks on the same leg.
Taking it up a notch. Same lunge with weights, only this time on one leg, followed by one-legged jumps.
The Meals: Countdown to Competition Eating Plan
egg whites + steel cut oats (1 red + 1 yellow)
Shakeology (1 red)
ground turkey + peppers + guacamole (1 red + 1 green + 1 blue)
One of my favorites! Since each day we’re allowed to substitute one teaspoon of coconut oil with avocado, I love having Fix-approved guacamole. I seasoned the ground turkey with the 21 Day Fix’s Smokey Southwest Seasoning and scooped everything up on the sliced peppers. Instant Countdown to Competition nachos!
chicken + zucchini noodles + sauteed veggies + coconut oil (1 red + 1 green + 1 tsp)
I love veggies, but I was quickly becoming bored with broccoli. So, I made this Fix-approved Cajun Chicken “Pasta” with zucchini noodles and sauteed veggies. The chicken I slow cooked and seasoned with home made blackened seasoning. I’ll definitely be adding this one to the rotation! The recipe uses coconut oil to saute the veggies, which was a great way to get in my required teaspoon.
shrimp + broccoli + coconut oil (2 red + 1 green + 1 tsp)
This Mexican shrimp was absolutely delicious! I added extra cayenne pepper to make it even spicier.
