Workout Wednesday! [guest fit-friend video!]‏

Happy Wednesday Goddess AND Gladiators!
Happy Wednesday
I love pancakes.
What does that have to do with today’s Workout Wednesday? A WHOLE bunch 🙂
The crazy dude below, Mikey “pancake” Whitfield is obsessed with iHop Pancakes. Even though I recently tried to convert him to eating my protein pancakes, his comment to me was “lolzzzz”. Which basically meant, “yeah right!”.
A few years back while I was researching the hottest workouts to bring to my sexy Venus Goddesses, I stumbled upon Mike (or as we call him “Mikey”) Whitfield. He had a killer blog and I was instantly obsessed with his awesome workouts and unique personality.
I purchased his programs and started delivering those workouts to my girls. They loved it. But, really, hated it at the same time 🙂
Mikey has a great story and I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him over the years at Fitness Summits. I continue to be inspired by his motivation to help others achieve their goals.
He has lost an amazing 115 pounds doing these style workouts here with little to no equipment. I’m so proud of him! Check out his pics below…
I saw him this past weekend at the San Diego Fitness Summit and asked him for a video for you Goddess (and some Gladiators!). So here it is below! He is always gladly sharing his awesome workouts.

He also wrote for Men’s Health recently and I thought I’d share a little bit about his research with ya’ll..

“According to a study by the University of California at San Francisco’s Human Performance Center, cardio machines OVERESTIMATE calorie-burn by shocking amounts…

The Treadmill was bad… Overestimating calories burned by 13%

The Stationary Bike was okay… Overestimating calories burned by 7%

But the …Elliptical was the worst!

It overestimated calories burned by 42%! <= The WORST cardio method (this one I knew ladies, but didn’t realize it was that bad!)

Fortunately, there is a MUCH better way to train for fat loss.

Here’s why shorter high intensity workouts are so much better for burning your belly fat…

According to a study presented at the prestigious American College of Sports Medicine, scientists found that shorter intervals allow you to burn more calories in your “AFTERBURN” period.

If you don’t know about Afterburn, it’s basically the MAGIC behind interval training that allows you to lose more weight even though you exercise less.

Even better, many NEW & Improved short workouts can be done WITHOUT equipment, unlike slow, cardio sessions in the gym.”

Thanks to Mikey for sharing your great quick video with my Goddesses & Gladiators! For my bootcamp girls, just know that a lot of your amazing workouts and results have been influenced by Mr. Mikey “Pancakes” Whitfield and Shawna K. Always more to come!

Remember, you have to start somewhere! Even if you just perform this video a few times per week until you build up more endurance to challenge yourself further, you could be an inspiration to others just like Mikey!

Loving you even if you eat iHop Pancakes,
