Shape Up Challenge – Week 2

Week 2 of 12: Shape Up Challenge

Congratulations! You have made it to week two! Aren’t those metabolic circuits killer? In a good way though. Well, it’s time for us to turn up the heat!  This week we are going to increase intensity by introducing resistance into the Calorie Cyclone portions of the workouts. You can use dumbbells or elastic resistance bands, which ever you have available to you will do the trick. If some of the exercises in week two seem too difficult for you right now, don’t worry,  just refer to the exercises in week one and continue doing those until you feel like your body is ready to move on.

Below is the recommended schedule for week two. It’s the same deal as week one, if you don’t have time to do all three segments every single day that’s okay, but do your best to do three Calorie Cyclone workouts, at least one core workout, and a metabolic circuit each week.

Here is a link to the nutritional article for this week: “The Right Balance of Nutrients” It isn’t easy to know how much protein, carbohydrates, and fats you should be getting each day but this article will help you learn how much of each nutrient you should be getting every day.  Remember to continue doing the nutritional goal from last week in addition to the new one for week two.

    Hi There Askfitnesscoach,
    I know what you mean, I just challenged a guy i like to a feats-of-strength kind of thing. he plays rugby and im in shape but he’ll probably win. But I don’t know what to do for the challenge, what to bet, or when to do it! I don’t even know if he likes me but i think he does.

    Hi I have a question… When we do the core workout with the cable you use, how do we at home do it if we don’t have access to That machine?!?! What can we use to substitute that cable to get the best core results?? could we use a resistance band and tie it to something for the resistance?! What do u suggest! thanks i really appreciate your time and reply!!
    Best Wishes,,, Jen

      I use a resistance band around my table leg and it works great! Good Luck!

        I would advise people to test the resistance band first as I did not and the band was so strong and I am so heavy that I moved the table and ended up on my butt. Thanks to both Jen for the question and Robyn for the answer.

          Mike,
          Thanks for bringing that up. That is definitely an important thing to keep in mind!

    Good morning. I’ve just finished Day 9 and am loving this workout! Thank you! Looking forward to Day 10, it seems the Core Workout is posted in place of the Metabolic Circuit. I assume I’ll just do the Metabolic Circuit from Day 8 & 12. Is that correct?

    Nicole,
    Thanks for bringing that to our attention! You will just do the same workout that is posted for day 8 and 12. Good luck!

    Hi, I’m really enjoying the exercises and can feel a difference in myself already. I have a problem though, I received my last workout on April 1st for Week 2, and I finished that two days ago. I haven’t received any exercises for Week 3, though I have received other emails for products, etc. So, I’m kind of hung up here, am I supposed to repeat Week 1 or 2? I even checked my Spam folder and there is nothing there either. Thanks for your help.

      Lisa,
      I am so sorry it didn’t come. That is really weird. You can find the week 3 workouts at askfitnesscoach.com/shape-up-challenge-week-3/
