Some of these healthy snacks are actually big enough to be meals for the average size girl (whatever the hell average size girl is) …what I mean is a girl who’s not necessarily trying to put on weight. I am pretty low maintenance and sorta lazy when it comes to cooking, so these are pretty quick and easy to make as well.
1. Smish a banana into a bowl and drop a scoop of Monster Milk on top. I use brownie batter, or cake batter, or banana cream. Work the dry powder into the smished banana until it’s all mixed together and is a a delicious gooey mess. Then eat. It’s a good high protein, low fat meal with carbs. Tastes like a dessert.
2. Mix equal parts cottage cheese with flavoured greek yogurt. Again, high protein, low fat meal with carbs.
3. Stir a tbsp of sugar free jam into a serving of cottage cheese. Great high protein, low carb, low fat meal.
4. Sometimes I chop a couple of ounces of leftover extra lean ground turkey or lean beef and reheat in a bit of olive oil in a pan and add some egg whites and fry it up. Kinda tastes like steak and eggs for breakfast…at any time of the day. Great high protein, low carb meal
5. Veggies dipped in hummus. If you’re ambitious enough to make it yourself….all the better, but if not, hummus is generally pretty healthy and a great snack. Just skip the pita and dip raw veggies into it. Pretty yum.
I’ll be honest…this one is a bit rough…I haven’t been doing as much conditioning lately but sucking in a video is great because it shows you what you have to do….it’s like taking progress pictures. Pictures and videos don’t lie lol….if you suck, you’ll see it. Also, this was all filmed in the same workout, I had to change my top because slide-y on slide-y is annoying.
Also again, please excuse in the indoor setting…the patio is covered with men on scaffolding grrr.
Well…I filmed my first conditioning workout since being in L.A. It looks a little rough because I did rack pulls 2 days prior and my back was absolutely destroyed. I did 2 sets of each circuit, which took about 15 minutes. I would add another set of each circuit for a full session. Don’t forget to warm up on your own. And you can finish the session with your own abs/core/stretching exercises.
Here’s what I did:
Goblet Squat – if you don’t have a dumbbell you can use a kettlebell, plate, or even a medicine ball
Kettlebell Deadlift Burpee – You can use a set of dumbbells if you don’t have 2 KB’s. Or if you have just one KB you can set it in the centre, do your burpee, placing your hands on the ground instead of holding on the KB, and pick the KB up with 2 hands in the centre.
BW Slider Lunge – You can add weight if you want to, just remember those sliders are very slippery so you have to have the strength to pull yoursel back up, don’t go too low too fast
Hop in Squat out – Touched the palms of my hands to the ground on each rep
Step Behind Lunge with Overhead PressPushup with Plank Rotation – Use just bodyweight if you can’t control that weight as you rotate. Little baby weights fully approved on this one.
Platechoppers – I used a DB end to end, but you can use a kettlebell, plate or even a medicine ball for this. Make sure heels stay on the ground and you’re pushing those hips back
Slider Jackknife – Keep your shoulder girdle tight and steady with minimal movement.
