Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer: Day 23
We're not about to let our backs slack off and our arms soften up. If you want to be the total package, your back and biceps should be as strong as they are toned.

Great workout on day 23... did not feel as strong as I usually did but that may have something to do with not taking enough calories for dinner. I can see why we need to eat the right stuff and so much of it. on to tomorrow.
I mixed a teaspoon of almond milk, a dash of cinnamon, Ginger, cloves and xylitol ( sweetener ) in. My sweet potatoe this morning! Tasted like"pumpkin pie!". I'm ready for my workout I'm feeling motivated!
I am getting ready to finish week#4/Phase 1 of Livefit this Friday June 19th and I have lost 8lbs already - and have noticed some very motivating changes in my body already!!!
Not only as a user but also as personal trainer, I'm excited to see what Phase 2 offers both in the gym and in the mirror =)
Stick with it and stick to the diet as best as you can! Together they are a wicked combination for results...stay motivated!!
this week is my last for phase 1. I feel good. I have been taking supplements. I am only worried that I gained 2 lbs instead of lose.. I have been eating right, but feel bloated a lot..
I know what you mean.....You just have to forget about what you cheated with and start fresh your next meal. I keep my meals simple because when I give myself too many options, I start thinking about the bad stuff I could be having.
I'm going through the same. I'm really feeling flabby today but am sticking with it. You wrote this last week. How are you feeling now? I think we'll see more changes in Phase 2. Don't give up, we're almost 1/3 through it!!
I feel the same. Ive lost 7 lbs total so far I am on day 23 as well. My better half has lost 24lbs. Its a motivation killer! I hope next week helps us all see more fat burning results.
I have a question for anyone that can answer it... when you are doing an exercise like the alternate dumbbell curls, how do you could your 3 sets of 10? Are you counting the total number of raises by each arm to get to 10? Or are you counting the total number of raises by both arms? Is it 1-1, 2-2, 3-3...? Or just essentially 5 lifts per arm in a set? Thanks for the replies!
Doing day 23 tomorrow. Feeling great. Getting stronger everyday. Diet is not difficult if you take one day to cook your meats, rice and protein bars for the week. I eat breakfast at home, pack 3 meals for work and eat dinner when I get home. The key to eating clean is planning. Thank you Jamie for providing this great program.
loving the workout altough have to do yesterdays and todays workout today as i didnt have time yesterday, can really follow the meal plan as i dont eat veg ( trust me, iv tried, i gag!) just trying to eat six times a day without snacking, hope this works as i find it really easy to it this way!!
Had a great workout today! Definitely feeling stronger. My metabolism is unreal!!! I use to live on veggies and my body refused to any more changing. But couple weeks on this program and I am seeing results!
I don't have the hammer strength lat pulldown at my gym. Is an underhand grip on the cable lat pulldown an ok subsitute? I realized the arms aren't independent on the cable machine, but it's the closest thing I have - unless there are any other suggestions?
Hey guys! so awesome to read everyone's comments and progress. Today is Saturday and I have to work all day and missing my gym's open hours so i will recuperate back and biceps on day 27...What I have learned most about the program is that you do have to develop those new eating habits! I was so nervous to eat every three hours and everything she asks us for but believe me - your body starts to burn those calories when your metabolism knows it will get fed and starts to speed up! Also - be creative and smart! - I don't eat EVERYTHING to a tee that program asks for but definitely eat only clean and food i prepare. It is possible! I get very inspired by fitness-like minded people on Instagram :) it's been awesome to play with clean food. My body is tighter and I also do sometimes feel bloated but it goes away the next day. Abs are slowly forming and I'm loosing overall body fat. Can not wait for PHASE 2 and some Cardio lol
doing this today! everyone let's go!
i'm a stay at home mom, and dont have access to the gym. i only got a couple of dumbbells, and recently bought resistance bands and a pull up bar. anyone else in my situation, feel free to pm me! i'd love to share my routine with you! :)
It's so great to hear from someone in a similar situation to mine! I am a mom of three who work full time and don't have access to babysitting. I have no choice but to work out at home.
I have some dumbbells an old weight bench an a resistance row band.
I am simply so fed up of making excuses for not sticking to a weightloss programme that I'm fighting to stay with this.
It is great so far, but today's workout is especially challenging to me since it is hard to adapt at home.
I would love to hear how you have adapted back and biceps day.
Your comment was posted about 2 wks ago, how is the programme going for you now?
I have been doing this workout program for 23 days and I love it I feel it's working I can't wait for phase 2 that's when we get to do cardio I live cardio and mad loving weightlifting now yeah !
In week 4 day 23 . Feel great! Finally Down 3 1/2 lbs!!!! After a gain of 5 lbs over the past 3 weeks! Super excited about next week when we can start cardio!!!! Good luck everyone! Jeep up the good work everyone! :-)
I am going after work to do my biceps and back tonight. Has anyone else seen their weight stay almost the same as the beginning? My body has definitely toned, but my weight has fluctuated up and down about 2lbs . I fell off the diet some last weekend and the weekend before. Not too bad though. The weeks are easier since I work and the days are more structured.
