Erin Stern's Elite Body 4-Week Fitness Plan
Erin Stern's Elite Body Fitness Plan is your chance to transform. It's your chance to re-imagine your best. In four weeks, you'll be leaner, stronger, and more powerful than you were before. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned athlete, Elite Body can help you take your physique and your performance to new levels. Get ready to rethink what's possible. It's time to earn your elite.
START with.... Shoulder & Arm Workout
Shoulders are one of the most critical muscle groups in your body. From an athletic standpoint, they're involved in multiple major movements, from push-ups to front squats. If you're mostly into aesthetics, wide shoulders start that classic X-frame and make your waist look smaller. Healthy shoulders are also essential for many sporting and daily activities.
The Elite Body Trainer will help you learn the difference between training and exercising. Set an objective goal and use the workouts to achieve that goal. You're not just going in the gym to break a sweat; you're in there to train with intensity and purpose. An elite body doesn't just look strong, it is strong!
NEXT.... Complete Leg & Plyometrics Workout
Legs are the most important part of an elite body. They form your aesthetic and functional foundation. No matter your goal, your legs will carry you toward it. Your legs are where your power comes from; they're where your strength comes from. You can't build a great body without a base to stand on.
Because your legs are the largest group of muscles in the body, you'll get the biggest metabolic benefit from working them. In other words, performing leg exercises will burn a lot more calories than doing biceps curls. Training legs will result dramatic increases in your physique and performance. The harder you work, the faster results will come!
This workout will develop your strength, endurance, and power with plyometrics and compound exercises.
NOW... Strong Back Workout
Your back is a big source of power. It's also the second largest muscle group in the body. If you want to see fast results, you can't ignore your back. A wide back, which contributes to your V-taper, is a critical component of an aesthetic physique. A strong back will also keep your posture straight and prevent your shoulders from rounding forward.
This workout is built on supersets that will tax your nervous system, your muscular system, and even your cardiovascular system. It's designed to challenge you in various ways, on multiple planes of movement, and from several different angles. It's exactly what you need to create a brand-new physique. It's going to take hard work and perseverance, but you can do it.
MOVING ON... Essential Chest & Shoulder Workout
An elite physique isn't complete without a great chest and strong shoulders. You can't press very well without powerful pectorals, and you'll look flat from the front and side if you neglect your chest training. This workout will help you build strength, size, symmetry, and great shape across your upper body.
Although this is technically your second shoulder workout of the week, don't let it deter you from working hard. Training frequency is one of the biggest tools we have for developing a muscle group. In fact, Erin has tremendous shoulders precisely because she trains them frequently.
LET'S STEP IT UP... HIIT Fat Burning Workout
Why are sprints so important for building an elite body? That's easy: You need to burn fat to showcase the hard-earned muscle you've been building in the gym, and sprinting is one of the most effective forms of fat-torching, muscle-preserving cardio. This high-intensity interval cardio workout may not be traditional, but it's incredibly effective!
Today's workout is only 10 minutes, so you have to push it as hard as you can. Be honest with yourself—you know when you're sandbagging and when you're giving it your all. Give it your all to get the best possible results.
BONUS VIDEO... Erin's Nutrition & Meal Plan
If you're going to train like an athlete, you need to eat like one. That means you need to eat quality carbs, proteins, and fats. The meal plan for Elite Body isn't complicated. In fact, it's built on single-ingredient, whole foods that you can make into myriad muscle-building meals. This is the plan Erin Stern follows to support a great physique and incredible performance.
Although you're working on a leaner, more athletic body, you need to fuel your efforts in the gym with quality nutrition. This meal plan will deliver the energy you need to attack the iron and crush your cardio. It won't leave you feeling hungry or depleted, but it will fuel great results.
