Zone 4 at One Life

My first experience at ZONE 4 & a few new supplements

June 7, 2017

So yesterday at one life I had my very first Zone 4 experience! Instead of training with Jim, my regular trainer, he wanted me to try something new....And it was AWESOME! During my session there was, i think 13, different exercises, i think? haha You do 3 reps at each station, for 45 seconds, with a 20 second break in between. You also have ADAM there with you, the entire time as a trainer and motivating you! But what exactly is Zone 4? 

Z4 is the ultimate workout combining intervals of cardio and functional training movements in a fun and motivating group setting, designed to help you burn 500-1000calories in one session!

By monitoring your heart rate during your session, you’re guaranteed to reach new levels of fitness. The ultimate goal is to produce an incredible post-exercise "afterburn effect" meaning extra fat and calories burned for up to 36 hours following your workout.

Z4 is a program for all fitness levels. Whether you’re at the very beginning of your fitness journey or in the home stretch, Z4 sessions provide the right intensity to take your fitness to the next level. Because your workout is guided by your heart rate, your session will be tailored to your individual fitness level. And you have the support and attention of a trainer to help you reach your goals.  You can get more info HERE



I was pretty nervous before I tried it.. So I tried my very first pre-work out supplement. I took half the recommended dose because I wasn't sure how my body was going to react to it. What did I take? I took Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Kill It-- Hardcore Pre-Training Drink-- KILL IT Pre-workout was designed to elevate your ability to train harder, stay strong longer, and produce a overflowing pipeline of muscle healing blood to your working muscles.

Carl at The Nutrition Corner recommended this to me because it's a good one to start off with! I definitely recommend it! I didn't feel all jittery, or like my heart was going to fall out of my butt lol.. it just gave me that extra boost! You can get it at any location!

I'm telling you, if it wasnt for him I wouldn't know any of this stuff or know anything about what fuel my body needs to reach my goal! The entire staff there provides value over everything... so whatever you goal is, needs are, or wants... they can direct you in the besll possible route to get there!!!

Right after my workout is a question I dealt with.. do I eat? What do I take? (Cause I'm a dummy) haha There's like one million different protein supplements at the stores... its overwhelming...I was recommend Core PWO by Carl and it's been treating me good! It taste awesome too! 

So right after my workout that's what I take! Why take a PWO? High quality, fast-acting carbohydrates and protein have been shown time and again to induce the most optimal conditions for growth in clinical studies – and that is precisely what Core has attempted to emulate with Core PWO. 

Core PWO takes the guesswork out of post workout recovery, containing the fast-acting proteins and carbs along with other anabolic agents needed to maximize muscle recovery after weight training. These ingredients quickly replenish muscle glycogen and shuttle much needed amino acids to muscle cells. Whether you are bulking up or slimming down, all of these ingredients are crucial for proper recovery.
