Jessica Smith has a 21 Day Weight Loss Plan, part of her Walk On program. The DVD set has been out for quite some time and I’ve followed it many times over. As you know, Jessica is one of my favorite walk coaches, see here or here. I saw on her Facebook page that she had recently given birth to a baby girl. Congratulations to her & her family!
21 Day Weight Loss Plan
The DVD set includes two DVDs featuring four sessions. All are about 30 minutes long.
- Day 1: Cardio Core Walk – This is a steady state workout designed to build a strong, flat and pulled-in waistline. You’ll burn a lot of calories doing this standing, 360-degree abs walk.
- Day 2: Low Impact HIIT Walk – As it says, it’s HIIT (high intensity interval training). You really burn a lot of fat and calories if you listen to her and push to your own limits during the intervals. It is joint friendly. To a certain extent, you can work up to the high level.
- Day 3: Tred and Shred – It’s optional, but it’s good to have a set of hand weights for this workout. This is an interval strength session combining resistance training with walking to make it easier to build metabolically active lean muscle mass.
- Day 4: Stride, Stretch and Relax – This is a recovery session to get your blood flowing, boost your mood and help stretch our sore, tight muscles.
- Day 5: Active rest day.
To be honest, I bought this set as soon as it came out. I didn’t finish one session. So it sat on a shelf collecting dust for quite some time. I had only been walking for a little while then. I couldn’t keep up. It was fast and intensive, at least to me, back then. So, I went back to Leslie Sansone. She’s also a favorite walk coach of mine. In fact, she got me started on walking. It took some time and persistence. But eventually, I was able to branch out to other coaches and programs that are a little more demanding and intensive.
Jessica’s mom, Debbie, is the one showing you a less intensive version. For instance, she doesn’t have hand weights or just holds water bottles. Or, she doesn’t squat as low and maybe not do a full-on jack.
If you’re like the before version of me, you might want to hold off on this program. However, if you’ve been active and exercising regularly, this is definitely a good plan.
