Being slightly rebel like, I decided to make Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday my workout days for this plan. I plan to do a quick walk today after work, so I can achieve my active rest and rack up those steps for my FitBit.
So this workout was recommended with a shitload of supplements. For the women, it would have been a little over a $100 with tax. The men's supplements was almost $150, if I could remember. As I mentioned, I decided against getting the recommended supplements on the reason I didn't want to break the bank again for this three-week program. I was okay with cutting out carbs and even my daily coffee, just green tea if I wanted my caffeine fix. I am taking supps and they are definitely cost-effective.
AM before breakfast - Carlson Labs Norwegian Cod Liver Oil, 2 tbsp
Not as gross as one would think. Its oil that tastes like lemon. Rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, EPA and DHA
AM with breakfast - Costco's brand Performance Multi Energy Formula
I feel the same when I spent a few hard earned nickles on the recommend supplements on my last plan and it cost less and has way more product that will go a long way for me.
Mid-morning/Pre-workout - Trader Joe's Super Green Drink Powder
I have this with a glass of plain, unsweetened almond milk and it has become a great substitute for actual solid products. I drink this usually an hour before my lunch-hour workout. It tastes great and I definitely like the benefits it offers.
Post-workout - BSN AminoX Post-Workout Recover Powder
Unfortunately, I am down to my last scoop. BCAA is definitely great for doing a workout that involves HIIT (high-intensity interval training). I still have my whey protein, which I can drink to feed my muscles.
