tone it up tuesday

This weeks Tone it UP Tuesday post is featured by The Fat Burn Revolution by Julia Buckley.


First the book, then the workout.

The book is split into two parts:

  1. The revolution starts in the mind (pretty much, the learning before the workout information: How to get results, what to eat, committing, etc.)
  2. The time for action has arrived ( a 12 week workout plan)

I actually read the whole first part, which if you know me is unheard of (I never read, whoops) and learned A LOT! Great information for anyone starting to workout.

My focus is now on the second part. I love this section! Julia gives you 3 workout plans that you do for 4 weeks each (totaling to 12 weeks). Each week has one rest day and 6 workouts which include upper body, lower body, total body and then two ‘furnace workouts’ (short bursts of hard, fast cardiovascular trainings).

book instructions 
Each exercise then has it’s very own page. It goes through the steps to complete the exercise, tips, what equipment you should use and the target area for the exercise. I love that it tells me all of that. I think that is so helpful especially when you are new to working out.

Now, since you guys are awesome, I’m going to share with you part of the first workout in her book.

upper body
I think the workouts in this book are EXACTLY what I need to get some motivation back when I go to the gym on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

If you are also looking for some motivation or are a beginner to the whole workout thing I definitely suggest you get your hands on this book ($22.10/paperback).

Now its your turn: Do you usually use plans when you workout or make up your own workouts? Do you usually do groups of exercises like the ones above or work on one exercise before moving on to the next?

That is so helpful that they go into that much detail on each exercise, that is so important to make sure you do it right, especially in a book! Looks like they have really thought things through.

I find that these exercises are crucial to my strength program to support my running, they started off as rehab, and are now prehab to keep me safe

When I’m at the gym lifting, I usually just go with what I feel like doing, but if I am doing strength at home, I need something to keep me focused :)

Oooo I need something to keep me focused anywhere I go haha or I will just end up sitting on the machines playing candy crush :P

Hi Danielle, I loved reading this – thanks! So pleased you like The Fat Burn Revolution. The book has been out since January here in the UK and is a best seller – it’s my first book and all very exciting for me, especially now it has been released in the USA too. It’s around 12 weeks since TFBR launched in the UK and some of the people who bought it early are coming to the end of the plan now, several of them are posting their stats and pics on the Facebook group, it’s really inspiring stuff – feel free to come join us in there: I’ll look out for you! Julia x
