Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer: Day 60

Time to give hamstrings, glutes and calves a serious workout. This is the perfect day, since your lower body should be recovered nicely from Monday's quad workout.

Dear Thursday: Time to give hamstrings, glutes and calves a serious workout. This is the perfect day, since your lower body should be recovered nicely from Monday's quad workout.

As before, you combine conventional weight moves with more ballistic-type drills, guaranteeing that all the fibers in these muscles will be activated. This is essential for both muscle building and fat burning.

This workout also pays special attention to the often-overlooked calf muscles. These exercises will give them the nice diamond shapes that will turn heads on stage, in the office or anywhere you wear heels!

Terms you'll need to know:

Superset: Perform the first exercise and then immediately do the next exercise. Only then do you take the 2-minute rest in between before repeating again.

Active rest: Do the first exercise, and then instead of resting, perform the active-rest movement (for example, jump rope). Immediately repeat the first exercise.

Triple set: Perform the first exercise, followed immediately by the second exercise, followed immediately by the third exercise. Only then do you take the 2-minute rest in between before repeating again.

Time To Count Calories!

Up to this point, the focus with the meal plan has been to consume adequate calories to support your weight training goals. Moving forward, it will be necessary to determine a specific calorie range to increase your fat burning potential while maintaining your hard-earned muscle.

Follow this simple formula to determine the number of calories you should consume moving forward, using the foods included in the meal plans:

  1. Multiply your goal weight by 10 to arrive at your baseline.
  2. Add between 200 and 500 calories to determine the ideal calorie range that will support the rest of your Phase Two and Phase Three workout routines.

    (So, for me, that would be 110 (lbs) X 10 + 200 = 1300 and 110 (lbs) X 10 + 500 = 1600).

  3. On rest days and lighter days (arms, shoulders, abs), eat in the lower range (1,300 calories). On heavier days (chest, legs, back), eat in the higher range (1,600 calories).
  4. Once we arrive at Phase 3, the lower number will become the starting point for the carbohydrate cycling we'll do!

Phase 3 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!

Well, jamie said in one of her videos that if you don't change you eating Habits for more healthy ones, your abs won't change that much! If you're doing all the abs training but still eats unhealthy things, you'll only get tired and unmotivated. Remember, everything starts in the kitchen not in th gym! I still have my belly (seems to be stuck with me :D) but i already see a few changes, wich motivates me.i hope i could help!

Try to cut your carbs lower on rest days and still watch to make sure you eat only complex carbs. Good luck to you and I wish you luck:)

I do these all the time. It doesn't require the weight. You jump twice and lower into a plie squat and then spring back up and repeat. No idea why they have the dumbbell pli� squat video featured??? It would be dangerous with weight...

This reply is way after your original comment - I hope things worked out for you. I feel like I've lost my mojo this week, too. Going into P3 is a tough transition. And I don't know about you, but I have come to HATE leg day in P3. On the first day, I thought I hated P3. The next two days were ok, though, actually kinda fun. Then today, I had to drag myself to the gym and force myself through each set.

If anyone else reads this and feels this way... you're not alone! Just keep pushing through. Do whatever it takes to get yourself to the gym and to finish in a way you feel proud of yourself for. This part is only two weeks until we move into circuits, which will be much faster and get you out of the gym in a hurry! Don't let yourself fall apart when you're so close to the finish line! And don't beat yourself up, either. Just push, push, push, and be proud of how much you've done.

Pay attention to how your body is reacting to the whey protein. I was not using whey in the beginning and I was losing 2-3lbs a week. Then I started using whey and the scale stopped moving. I've since stopped using whey and now the pounds are coming off. Pay attention to your body! We all handle supplements differently. The program works so stick with it. If your not losing weight then its probably your diet, your caloric intake, or your supplementation...not the workouts!

You are so right. You have to pay attention to your body. A girl I follow who competes said she stopped taking whey because it bloats her.

Yes, I just did it today! Pull a bench over to a cable machine. Lay on the bench and have the leg attachments around your ankles and hook those up to the cable. It works!

I have 2 more weeks left and I can totally see the finish line in the near distant. I started off at 140 and now am 127. I have 2 pounds left to go. Thanks Jamie for the constant motivation.

I am so sore! Is anyone else extremelye sore? I have been consistent with drinking lots of water my supps and stretching I don't know why my muscles have been recovering slowly. Quads & glutes I felt I nearly pulled a muscle! Sprints tire my whole body out but I still push myself hard and try my best at following these exact workouts

i'm having the same problem! i've gained a lot of muscle ( haven't checked bf% change but i know i feel stronger and can see muscle building in my arms and legs) but my belly fat hasn't budged, and my weight has only gone up 2 lbs! i'm starting to cut carbs way more, getting them down to less than 50 a day and on high carb days just using oats for breakfast and maybe some starch at lunch time. i think the springs and low carbing should help! though i havne't been able to complete 30 min of sprints... i'm worn out after 15!!

This workout was as intense as the last leg day. Burned 658 calories (according to my HRM), and I didn't do cardio. Finished this workout in about an hour and 10 minutes (but I did a 10 min warm-up beforehand). Great workout!

my body is in shock people......I love it! I haven't lost any serious poundage but I have began transforming by body and I have decreased my size!...this phase is my true test to how serious I am about my transformation. I am loving my new muscles...my new strength (physically and mentally). I knew when I started, that change wasn't going to happen immediately and I have made a commitment to myself to give everything I have to fitness and diet for a full calendar year. I'm off to a very good start and hope that everyone is on their path to success. If your goals aren't met this 12 weeks just keep on...do another 12 weeks. The only way is up if you keep applying yourself and remember...if it were easy...everyone would be doing it!
