The Workout Wait is (Almost) Over

I got to do a 25 minute preview workout from this video. I did the upper body portion. And let me tell ya I am not going to be able to move my arms tomorrow.
This work out is not something I would recommend for beginners. It will definitely seem intimidating at first. But if you just do as many reps as you can then you will definitely be able to build up to keep up with Jackie and her trainers. Its a great workout.
Jackies queuing is perfect and she gives lots of tips on keeping good form. All you need for this workout is a pair of light hand weights and you are good to go.
Another workout similar to this one that will cause equal amounts of pain is the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred.

Sky Sport and Spa’s newest trainer is Greg Plitt.Â He’s a true veteran of the fitness modeling scene and has appeared in dozens of top selling fitness magazines.
In a recent interview with Express, he talks about the rigors of being a fitness model and the unrealistic extremes it takes to get a cover model look:
Â» EXPRESS: How did you get into fitness modeling?
Â» PLITT: I had just come back from Korea and I was stationed in D.C., living in a house off-base. It was a dump in Arlington.
So, my mom called and said she’d found a voucher for a one-night stay at a Marriott and asked if I wanted it. So, my buddies and I are there hanging out by the bar when all of these good-looking men and women came in.
Turns out, it was a modeling industry event. Two weeks later, I did a test shoot, and that landed me the cover of Muscle & Fitness. I read the magazine, so I thought that was really cool.
Â» EXPRESS: How does one get to look like you?
Â» PLITT: The better the picture looks, the worse you feel. You get your body fat down to single digits, dehydrate yourself and get rid of carbs â€” it’s not very healthy. And you need to be ready because the model is the last person hired on a shoot. If you like going to the gym, that’s not a problem. I do a body part a day in a five-day split. I never plan a day off.
Â» EXPRESS: What do you do after a shoot?
Â» PLITT: I pig out. The night before is the worst â€” you never miss the food; you miss the water. I dream that I’m under a waterfall and I’m drinking all of it. The dehydration part’s not fun. My clients, I would never tell them to do that. They want to look like these covers and I tell them, “That’s not real.” And Photoshop is your friend.
Â» EXPRESS: What’s your favorite workout?
Â» PLITT: Just getting on a treadmill and running five miles. Or climbing ropes. I’m an athlete and I like moving a lot â€” being on a machine doesn’t do much for me.
Here’s a video of Greg in action:
The long awaited Workout season 3 is almost upon us.Â We expect to see Jackie Warner’s new clothing line, supplements, trainers and relationships in full bloom.
Behind The Workout
Meantime, here’s some insight on how the show was filmed and edited compliments of After Ellen Piece:
Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of programming and production, was part of the team that created and developed Work Out. He said: “At Bravo we follow the person. Jackie happens to be gay. â€¦ We didn’t have a mandate saying we need a lesbian show. We just found Jackie.”
Cohen went on to credit the gym setting with bringing out the drama in the personal lives of central and supporting characters alike: “You go into a gym and you start talking to your trainer, and suddenly you’re kind of spilling your soul. [The drama on Work Out] is kind of the natural course of what happens.”
And as for how the show is filmed and edited…
The process of taking the real life of Sky Sport to the screen is relatively straightforward. According to Cohen, for 12 weeks “you’re shooting for eight, nine hours at a time with various people. Probably five, six days a week.
You may be on Jackie three to four days that week, and you may cover other stuff with the other trainers.” The producers sift through the hours of film and cut 99 percent of it to create nine 44-minute episodes that tell a compelling story.
Â Now it’s time to see how all this work pays off. Â Season Three of Jackie Warner’s Workout Show premiers Tuesday, April 15thÂ at 11pm on Bravo.
