Powerlifter, bikini athlete, or soccer mom, your pecs matter. By training them hard, you'll increase the strength of your push and create a more symmetrical physique!
Don't forget to time your rest periods. Part of the reason Elite Body doesn't ask you to do much cardio is because your resistance training should also be intense, cardiovascular workouts. Keep your heart rate high and you'll burn way more calories than you would resting for three minutes between each lift.
Elite Body Meal Plan
Check out the table below to see what Erin eats on a daily basis. You don't have to follow these meals exactly, but take some cues from Erin's template: Eat 5-6 times per day, eat protein at every meal, stick to complex carbs, don't skimp on healthy fats, and taper your carbohydrate intake as the day goes on. Follow these rules to build your own elite meal plan.
Because each of us has particular caloric and macronutrient needs, feel free to add or subtract calories, increase the protein, and make other adjustments. Be smart about your choices, stick to the same food categories, and try to adhere to the schedule. What you eat is just as important as what you do in the gym, if not more. There are a lot of healthy options in these example meals, so you shouldn't ever feel deprived or hungry.
