The fitness routines

The exercise circuits in the plan are deigned to ramp up your results in as little time as possible. ‘Resistance training builds muscle, which not only protects your bones, but increases your resting metabolism’, says Harley. ‘Building muscle means that you’ll burn more calories all day long even in your sleep’.

Sounds good, right? Here’s a taster of the moves you’ll be doing alongside your 10,000 steps…

Plank: Keep your abs tight and squeeze your bottom

Squat: Push your hips back and go as low as is comfortable

Circuit A

How to do it: Do circuit A during Phase 2 of the plan. You should perform the workout on days 6, 8 and make sure you walk 10,000 steps daily.

Beginner: 1 x 20 reps of each move

Intermediate: 2 x 20 reps of each move

Advanced: 3 x 20 reps of each move

1.    Reverse fly - Areas trained: Upper back and shoulders

2.    Triceps dip - Areas trained: rear upper arms and shoulders

3.    Superman - Areas trained: lower back and bottom

4.    Ball hamstring curl - Area trained: hamstrings

Circuit B

How to do it: During Phase 3, you need to up the number of workouts you do by adding a circuit. So do circuit A don days 11, 13 and 15 and circuit B on days 12 and 14. Continue to walk 10,000 steps daily, too.

Beginner: 1 x 20 reps of each move

Intermediate: 2 x 20 reps of each move

Advanced: 3 x 20 reps of each

1.    Squat - Area trained: lower body

2.    Press-up - Areas trained: chest, shoulders and arms

3.    Standing side bend - Area trained: waist

4.    Plank  - Area trained: core and shoulders

After the reset

Once you’ve completed the three phases of the plan, you’ll need to stick to eating five times a day – one smoothie, two snacks and two solid meals. Twice a week you are allowed ‘free meals’ when you can eat whatever you want.

‘Building muscle means that you’ll burn more calories all day long’

Keep walking no less than 10,000 steps a day every day and do a 10-minute resistance training circuit five days a week to help increase lean muscles. ‘Walking is a simple fat-burning activity that doesn’t require any skill or equipment, while super-short resistance workouts five times a week get great results’, explains Harley.
