Let’s chat about workout quick fixes. You know them, the 30 minute workout, the incredible shake, the contraption that can do it all and “make you lose 15 pounds in one month” sort of thing. I wanted to chat about this on the blog because the last few months I have been seeing them (not going to name any company names but they’re a big one and they’re taking over the fitness game) pop up more than ever, and I just can’t hold in how I feel any longer.
I’m super lucky that I have this space to be able to make a change (at least I hope) and I wanted to broach this topic because honestly I think it’s unfair to the women of the world that really do want to make a positive fitness/ health change in their life, but might not have the background knowledge to know what will actually work.
All too often I am scrolling through Facebook or Instagram and come across these people selling fitness workouts, or fitness drinks showing a photo of themselves looking (in shape, ripped, whatever you want to call it) making the consumer believe that they will look like this if they do this workout, or drink this drink and let me just tell you that’s false.
These people forget to give you a little background information which goes a little something like this. They use this drink/ workout to supplement something they are already doing and that something is definitely lifting heavy ass weight and working pretty damn hard for it. This can be in the form of anything from strength training, weight lifting, Cross fit, etc. But they sure as hell aren’t doing 10 sets of flutter kicks in their living room to get a rock hard stellar bod.
Ugh sigh! I totally wish that was the case but it isn’t and if you want that killer bod you need to put in the TIME.
This being said I want my blog, Instagram, etc. to be a space of motivation and positivity for people. I want people to come to my page because they know that what they see is what they get…what i’m promoting or talking about is real and will only lead you to hopefully becoming the best version of yourself.
I am on a mission to post my real unfiltered workouts, the things I do daily (or weekly) to keep myself healthy and in the shape that makes me feel the best. In doing this I hope that it will motivate others to drop the random contraptions, short workouts, and shakes and pick up some weight and get after it!
Follow along over on Instagram and Snapchat (username: lbartlett12) for daily updates.
Here is my first unfiltered Blissfully Lively Daily Workout. Let me know what you think!
- 10 med ball slams
- 30 second L-Sit holds
- 5 trap bar dead lifts (this changes each week, weight and sets)
- pull ups (as many as I can do)
- Repeat 3x
