Natalie Jill Workout
With a huge global following and so many successful publications, Natalie Jill is a global star in the fitness world. Starting from Rock Bottom, means she has become an inspiration to so many women who face relationship and family struggles just like her.
Her 7 day jump start program is something that she is particularly proud of and something that sells massive volumes. This is the guide that helped take Natalie even further, from the original diet advice and food photos, into fitness stardom.
Generally Natalie only trains with her own bodyweight. Which is something that is reflected in her program. She completely avoids isolation exercises, as these don’t really do much in terms of energy expenditure.
Workout days are intensive and happen between 3 and 4 days a week. However she will do some steady state cardio/other activities on non workout days.
Natalie’s top exercises are:
- Pull Ups
- Battle ropes
- Sled pulls
The program that got Natalie to fame, the 7 Day Jump Start is something that focuses on body weight exercises and 7 minute long workouts. This workout is aimed at people wanting to work their entire body and doesn’t require a gym membership.
A typical workout would look like the one below. This is plank and core focused and is certainly something that could help you build up that all important core strength, whilst toning your stomach and glutes.
- Hand Plank with Criscrossed Legs x 15/20 Seconds Each Side
- Knee to Elbow Holds x 30 Seconds (30 seconds rest then switch sides)
- Single Leg Glute Bridge x 1 minute on each leg
- Reverse bridge holds x As many as you can in 1 minute
- Side plank reach and touch x 30 seconds (30 seconds rest then switch sides)
Natalie Jill Diet
You won’t find Natalie Jill eating any rubbish and processed foods. Her diet is clean and her fridge stocked up with fruit and vegetables. As a protein source she eats hardboiled eggs, chicken, various types of fish and nuts. Her nutritional approach stays the same through her programs/workout phases and it’s something that she keeps consistent.
Clean eating is absolutely essential for Natalie and she says that even most people who think they eat clean, aren’t. The common fails that people make when it comes to a healthy and clean diet are not eating enough, not balancing meals right and still not eating enough fruits and vegetables.
In order to support workouts and a healthy lifestyle you need to avoid anything that’s boxed and make sure you are balancing carbs, proteins and fats. Do not just cut out entire groups, as this can result in problems in the long run.
One way that Natalie Jill says you can remember to keep your diet clean is by thinking more like a cave man.
Do you eat food that comes ONLY from a plant, an animal, the ground, or the ocean? If not, you SHOULD. Eating clean means eating how eating how the”cave-man” ate.
Nutritional Rules to remember according to Natalie Jill:
- Don’t overeat, even overeating healthy foods can cause weight gain
- Drink more water.
- Avoid consuming extra calories in your drinks! (And drink more water)
- Always try and eat as many fruit and vegetables as possible
- Once again, CUT OUT THE PROCESSED FOODS AND EAT LIKE A CAVE MAN
Natalie protects all her diet and meal plans. So you’ll have to buy it to access the full thing. But as an indication of what she eats on her blog and everything that has been said above, her day to day diet will look something like this (It may be adjusted slightly for training).
- Breakfast: Smoothie/Oats
- Snack: Banana/Fruit
