Hey Whitney! Obviously this is a smidgen late to the game... but I have a question for you: What is the length of an average workout for you? And how many minutes on average do you spend in the gym weekly? I'm changing up my workout routine and lifting heavier as able, and it's fun, but also challenging... I now do split workouts for muscle building. But as I learn more about the time and endurance certain exercises require through experience, sometimes I find that the workout I plan takes too long (mostly because of my rest breaks). I'm aware of the dangers of over-exercising and have no intentions of doing this, but sometimes... ya know... I'm winded and have low energy and it takes longer than planned--especially on leg day. Haha Of course I'm lowering the amount I do so I can fit it all in in a reasonable time (for me this is no more than an hour), but I'm also trying to build up my endurance so I dont have to take such long breaks either. I'm curious what your advice and experience is with this? Hopefully you see this! 😊

In a nutshell- as long as you need. You could blast through a workout session in an hour or you could be in the gym for two. Honestly, it's up to you. If you're focusing on each rep, your form and taking adequate rest time, the overall length of the session isn't too important. The important part is getting in good quality reps during the session. Hope this helps 👍🏽

Really hope you see this! I recently started my journey, I’m 5 months in down 20 lbs mainly just changing how I eat and doing some workout. I recently started weight lifting and not doing very much cardio. I keep hearing that building muscle burns fat, but you need to be in a surplus to gain muscle, yet in a deficit to lose weight 🤦🏻‍♀️. Now I have no idea where I need to be going with this. I currently workout 6 days a week, mainly weight training, and I’m at a calorie deficit, will this get me to my goal? Or do I need to switch things up?
Steve O'Shea

Congrats on the progress! Sorry I'm late to the party here but I hope this may answer your question. Yes you need a surplus to gain weight. Yes you need a deficit to lose weight. But, weight is made up of both fat and muscle. So, it is possible to lose fat while building muscle, if your diet is on point. It's a challenge but it can be done. If you're trying to build muscle while minimising the amount of fat you gain, then I recommend a slight surplus (100-200kcal above your TDEE). If you just want to cut down on fat then a deficit is the way to go. Whatever route you take, you need to be taking in an adequate amount of protein to allow for muscle recovery and growth. (1g/pound bodyweight per day as a recommendation). Hope this provides some clarity. Best of luck with the rest of your journey 👍🏽💪🏽😊

I’ve been on a fitness journey since January and I’ve lost 7 pounds. It doesn’t seem like a lot but it’s a big deal to me because my entire life I’ve felt so bad about my body and now I’m actually doing something about it. At first I started working out to look better, but I also feel better now mentally and physically. ❤️

Lol I’m watching this a little late to the game, but my #1 resolution was to get out of my comfort zone! And honestly I looked back the other day and there’s been so many things that I’ve done and loved that pushed me to be uncomfortable for a little bit but so worth it 😊

i think you would love crossfit. I've done it for two years now and it really fell under that category of "finding a type of working out that you love". it taught me everything i know about fitness. it's all about mental strength and being a "lifestyle", that you talk so much about, too which has carried over to so many other areas of my life. I'm in nursing school and find myself approaching times of stress like a crossfit mindset lol... now i'm trying to learn more about more isolated movements since most time i dont have time to go to the gym for a full hour plus travel time to and from the gym, so I'm trying to find how to build muscle with 30 min workouts at home or at my school gym where i can't really do crossfit workouts, and just doing crossfit when i can get to the gym. crossfit is a perfect mix between weightlifting and gymnastics, which you have experience with. you should give it a try!!! much loveeeee xx.

I love your off the shoulder sweater in this video, so cute! Non-fitness related question on it, what kind of bra type thing do you wear underneath? Just curious because I have some similar style tops and have a hard time finding something comfortable to wear underneath that’s also still semi-supportive. Any suggestions would be amazing!

Please note keto is not a no carb diet and there is a a wrong way and a right way to do keto. On the strictest form of keto it is 50 grams of total carbs and it is supposed to be good carbs through veggies. Also, if you work out it is suggested in the keto world that you up your carbs cause everyone is different so the first month it is finding the right ratio. The other think is key is not high protein it is moderate protein because protein can be turned into glucose so it differs from low carb high protein. The high fat portion is healthy fats if you do "dirty keto" you are eating lots of bacon, dairy, butter, uncured or cured meats like salami which are going to raise your cholesterol and is not good for you. If you do "clean keto" you work your way up to eating lots of vegetables I eat 12 cups an day now which I was nowhere near before and healthy fats such as avocado, olive oil etc. You get amazing benefits. My cholesterol has gone down, my blood sugar remains level and my numbers shock my doctor. Keto is also good for a lot of mental health issues but you have to do it right. If you do clean keto you will see that more than anything else you are eating veggies drizzled with a healthy oil and not a lot of oil since you have to stay within your calories. Also, keto will make you a scientist of your own body because you have to be tracking everything. I know keto gets a lot of flack and there is so much more I could go into but it's not bad and it is customizable for you. If you are doing it though do it the clean way you can lose weight on dirty keto but you won't be healthy. So clean keto is the way to go. Oh and if you workout on keto make sure to take it easy you don't have to go super hard in the gym to get results. Whitney you are amazing thank you for all the workouts I would be lost in the gym without you.

My New Years resolutions are to loose at least 50 pounds this year, to learn to deadlift, to run without getting winded, drink more water, to work out 3 to 5 times a week. So far, I’ve done 2 out of the 5 lol. I’m in the middle of trying to find a closer gym to my house so it will better motivate me, since the one I used to go to is like 15 minutes away.

The most difficult part for me about health and fitness right now is eating healthy. I live on campus with four restaurants and two diners; all are very good and have delicious food but they aren’t all that good for you. Like the healthiest thing they all have is salad, and who wants a salad all the time? Idk I feel like I can’t eat good unless it’s me cooking for myself, and I live in a dorm room with a microwave and can’t cook for myself.

How do you break up your weekly gym routine? Is upper body always together or do you break up chest, arms, and back into separate days? I’m having difficulties finding a routine that works cause I’m so sore I can’t do any upper body again for 3 days😂

Does Alaninu pre-workout have that super sour/bitter after taste like so many have? I find I can only drink most pre-workouts 2-3 times before they low-key start to make me gag because I can't deal with how sour they are or how bad the after taste is :(
