What to expect when training for the 21-day challenge
Expect to be educated & guided through the food plan and various training styles so you can make the right food and training choices at the right time, and by gaining this knowledge, We are giving you the power.
Will you receive a Meal Plan?
No, you will not. The key to success is not to write you a food plan as we have found by creating a rigid plan you may stick to it for a week or two but eventually, boredom will creep in and then the inevitable happens you may feel like giving up! So by making simple small changes that will be sustainable, you are more likely to enjoy the journey and forget about the destination.
Will the plan be easy to follow?
Firstly I advise you to start by taking some time and sit down and read through the SGUT Bible, This will give you the tools to start your journey and get you planning your food, planning and preparation are key!
How will you know what food to eat?
By reading the Bible, you will have a clear understanding of the food choices you are allowed on the plan. i: e what is right and what is wrong, but for the minute lets start by cleaning up the diet eliminating certain food types and start fuelling your body for health & performance and preparing you to be able to work in a calorie deficit.
What will happen when I work in a calorie deficit?
So we need to ensure that the energy that comes in through food and drink isn't more than your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) = Daily Calorie Allowance. This is where your personal Macronutrients (Protein, Fats, Carbohydrate) numbers we get from the Health Checker come in (See below), you will need to put these into your food logging section on the UGST App. This allows you to add everything you eat and drink throughout the day and this will help you stay under your Calorie allowance by staying in a caloric deficit you will achieve a healthy Fat loss.

What Training will you be doing?
All the sessions on the plan are using a combination of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) classes here at the Underground Gym The Strength Training plan will be on the UGST App
What is HIIT?
High-Intensity fitness classes HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This combination of body weight and cardiovascular training gets, and keeps your heart rate up and burns fat in less time. Research has shown that (HIIT) keeps the fat burning long after the training has finished this is called Excess Post Oxygen Consumption (E.P.O.C).
What Strength training will I be doing?
Your strength-training plan uses multiple joint movements that over small reps (8-12) will build good healthy lean muscle. The Strength training part of the program is broken into three days of each week, (Push day, Pull day & Legs day).
How many sessions will I be doing? And what if I cannot make one?
We are looking to get you training every day if you feel tired just go for a walk, but make sure you log it in the UGST App.
What if I am new to training?
If you are new to fitness or haven't done anything for a while, I advise starting by training light for the minute. Start by doing different sessions focusing on different body parts for each day the key is volume (High Reps, Lots of cardio), the key is to keep your body wanting to do more.
Once you feel ready, we can add Strength sessions in as you would have built a foundation of conditioning.
