In our minds, Jackie Warner is right up there with Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper when it comes to getting results. So seeing that we are in the holiday season—where we all seem to be (rightly so, in my opinion) sipping egg nog, nibbling on sugar cookies and cutting our workouts a touch short to finish that holiday shopping—and coming up on the New Year (where resolutions reign supreme!), we thought we’d pick Ms. Warner’s brain for her top weight-loss tips. Read on for tips on eating healthy out, boosting your metabolism, breaking through weight-loss plateaus and how you’re really supposed to use workouts DVDs!
Jackie Warner’s Top Workout and Diet Tips
1.Try cardio acceleration. For those who are looking for a challenge in the New Year, Jackie says to try “cardio acceleration,” where you add one to two minutes of plyometric cardio moves between sets of resistance training. “You get your heart rate up tremendously in these intervals,” she says. “The best way to do this, especially with a home workout, is grabbing a jump rope and doing 100 rotations in between each move.” If jumping rope isn’t your thing, burpees, squat jumps and box jumps work well as cardio-accelerating moves, too!
