80 Day Obsession: Phase 2 Results
Eight weeks of a set meal plan, no alcohol and workouts 6 days a week with my celebrity trainer, Autumn Calabrese. I'm officially through Phase 2 of 80 Day Obsession.
I was asked to be a part of this Test Group, as they are developing and tweaking the program. 80 Day Obsession will be released to the public in January 2018.
Week 8 finished off Month 2 of the program. Within the workouts, we did 2 rounds of 15 reps with each move all throughout the week. I've come to figure out that the fourth week of the workouts is my favorite - while I may not life as heavy, but the additional reps made my muscles feel it for every round. I love the fact that the workouts are similar each week, but not exactly the same (I haven't been bored at all).
I'm noticing a big change in my upper body, especially in my shoulders. While this program is marketed as helping you "build a booty," you definitely still work your arms as well. From the planks, to burpees, to holding huge weights for leg day - you'll be working your total body in these workouts.
Week 8 included another "Refeed Day," which is a day that Autumn created for you to eat extra carbs to help with muscle repair. There are 4 Refeed Days in 80 Day Obsession, that take place the day before Leg Day.
You'll receive a list of "dirty carbs" that you should eat that day, and you get to eat additional carb portions that day. On my Refeed Day I opted to have a waffle, pretzel twists, a hamburger bun and Fixate approved cookies.
It was a nice break to have the extra carbs, and mentally I felt that I got to give in to treats for a day. I felt full the next day, but the extra carbs really helped me power through my Leg Day workout.
More updates to come next week for Week 9.
