Jamie Eason's Livefit Trainer — Phase 1, Day 3

Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer: Day 3

We're here to build a beautiful lower body, but with zero treadmill torture.

We're here to build a stunning pair of legs, but with zero treadmill torture. Remember, there's no need to worry about cardio right now! Instead, we'll lift our way to the look we want.

Before we hit the gym, review these quick tips for a beautiful lower body:

  • Visualize your workout before you step into the gym.


  • If you have a pre-existing injury, take care warming up your muscles and loosen your joints.


  • Even though your legs are probably stronger than you think, watch the exercise videos carefully and focus on good form!

With legs like yours, get ready to leave this workout in the dust.

Schedule. Track. Succeed.

Legs/Calves:

Phase 1 Diet Tips:


  • Eat first meal within an hour of waking.


  • Plan ahead! Designate a food preparation day.


  • Measure and weigh everything whenever possible. Purchase measuring cups and a kitchen scale.


  • Eat every three hours (usually 5 or 6 times a day, depending on when you wake up)! It's the secret to speeding up your metabolism. Be on time!


  • Drink lots of water! May have coffee & tea with Stevia or a no-cal sweetener.


  • Take a daily multivitamin. If lifting weights, you might consider taking an additional calcium supplement.


  • Take one tablespoon of Flaxseed or Fish Oil daily. Flaxseed and fish oil actually aid in weight loss and encourages healthy bowel movements. (Mix in oatmeal or mashed sweet potato after heating food. Do not heat flaxseed.)


  • Consistency is key! If you have a day where you slip up … Don't give up! Start fresh at your next meal or the next day. You can do it!

Yes, just get the plain kind and add in your own fresh berries. A tad bit of honey or stevia if you need it sweeter. The flavored ones are LOADED with sugar!

I feel ya haha I need to do some sort of cardio because I love to work up a sweat, if I didn't, I feel like it was a waste of time hah. So I'm doin 20min of cardio (usually running) before the weights, and if I feel like it, 10 or 15 minutes after too.

Today was a fairly fast day. I have been getting through the exercises with in 1/2 hour. It is hard to believe that this short workout can do so much. I walked in to the gym this afternoon and I could hardly keep my eyes open. When I left I was feeling like I could accomplish anything!

I was just wondering that today, she says the workouts should be about an hour long but I am done within 30 minutes, maybe 45 max. Glad to know I am not the only one! :)

I noticed the same thing myself, I have been looking at the workouts for the next few phases and they definitely get longer.

When you click on the video for the exercises and it pops up click on where it says "View full detail" then scroll down and you will see all the alternative they have listed for that machine exercise :-)

okay this sucks!!!! I in into day three today and Im feeling like I've possibly contracted a flu bug....I'm feeling rather nauseated and the thought of eating makes it worse. What to do!!! I don't want to have a set back this early on, or because it's still early will it actually have a negative effect???

don't be so hard on yourself! rest and get better and get right back on it! if it's not a bug, maybe just your body adjusting... stick with it, you can do this!

You could be having a detox reaction as your body infills with healthy foods and nutrients and dumps the toxins in your body. It is a pretty normal for this to happen when you drastically change your eating habits. Just stick with it, drink a lot of water, and rest if you need to. Continue to eat what you can though so your body can continue to cleanse itself.

Me too! Its too much food. I feel sick from putting too much in my body. I think they need to offer options for different body sizes. At 5ft and 120lbs, there is no way I should be eating the same as someone who might be 5'8" and 170lbs. I don't think it's healthy to force yourself to eat so much that you feel sick.

I an on day 3 and loving it! However, I am extremely bloated. I'm sure it's from not being used to eating/drinking so much and so often, but when will that subside and When can i start seeing results in the midsection? Or is this not normal? thank you for our help!

Hi I'm having the same issue as well. I could see my abs a lot better before I started the program, I'm thinking it due to being in the bulking phase and no cardio, I sure hope so!!

Don't worry too much about it ..it actually may be the kind of protein you are digesting .If it has milk protein in it you may have to switch to a lactose free protein... other than that I'm not sure why you would be bloating other than it takes some time for your body to adjust to a new routine, workout and diet!!!
