INSANITY’S SHAUN T’S LAST-MINUTE DIET AND EXERCISE TIPS
Shaun T, the personal trainer who’s motivated millions with his at-home workouts, knows how to get people in shape in a short amount of time. After all, his Insanity workout program promises incredible results in just 60 days of sweating and jumping in front of your TV.
With Summer a mere few weeks away, we spoke with Shaun about how to get in shape for anything — whether it’s a beach holiday, wedding, or event — when you’ve only got a little time. Find out his recommendations below!
Watch your drink calories: ”Don’t drink your calories. That’s the number one rule of thumb: not to drink your calories. It will eliminate so many calories in your body. Everybody knows that sugar that’s not burnt off eventually turns into fat,” says Shaun, who’s also holding live workouts nationwide to promote his partnership with Powerade Zero. Shaun recommends portion control and cutting the amount of sugars and carbs in your diet in half, but “still ensure you have enough energy during the day,” he says.
Kick it up a notch: ”If you’re a person who works out at the gym, try to take [fewer] breaks,” Shaun recommends. “If you’re a weight lifter, while you’re not doing weights, try to do some different cardio exercise in between to try to ramp up the calorie burn.”
