21 Day Fix Workout Week 2

Week 2 of 21 Day Fix is done, dusted and all my major muscles are crying for mercy! You can catch up on week 1 review of 21 Day Fix HERE.

Week 2 of 21 Day Fix is similar to week 1 with the exception of 2 days where the exercises were different.

I’ve linked to the week 1 update where appropriate below.

After the challenge of week 1, I was chuffed and ready to take on week 2. I also moved up on the weights to challenge myself even more.

And my meal plan for week 2 was a bit more creative but not by much. I like simple food that doesn’t require 400 steps to prepare.

21 Day Fix Day 8 – Total Body Cardio Fix

Day 8 is similar to Day 1 of the workout. The moves that taxed my body the first round were not so bad this time around.

I even sort of enjoyed them. You can read up on the exercises involved in the total body cardio fix at 21 Day Fix Week 1 Update.

21 Day Fix Day 9 – Upper Fix

Day 9 is the same as day 2 of the workout. For week 2 of upper fix, I opted for the advanced steps of every move where applicable.

21 Day Fix Day 10 – Barre Legs

Barre legs is all leg and booty work. You need a chair and a mat for this workout.

Day 10 of 21 Day Fix is 8 exercises with a 15-second break between each move.

Day 10 of the workout is 30 minutes approx with a few minutes warm-up at the beginning and the end of the workout.

  • Sumo squat with pulse and hold
  • Squat with pulse and hold
  • Leg lifts with pulse and hold (left and right leg)

  • Attitude lift with pulse and hold (left and right leg)
  • Heel press with pulse and hold (left and right leg)
  • Calf raises with pulse and hold
  • Side leg lift with pulse and hold (left and right leg)

My booty was on fire by the time I finished this workout but it was the good kind of pain. 

I ended up not using the chair for balance and could keep up with the video.

21 Day Fix Day 11 – Flat Abs Fix

Flat abs fix works the abs primarily and consist of 5 rounds with 2 exercises in each round. 

You will need 1 moderate weight, a mat, and a towel for this workout.

Each exercise lasts a minute with a 10 second approx. break between each move.

Day 11 of the workout is 30 minutes approx. There was no warm-up or warm-down on day 11. Just a quick 30 second stretch at the end.

  • Round 1 – Oblique crunch (left and right side) x 2 and standing scrunch with a knee raise x 2
  • Round 2 – Side bend (left and right side) x 2 and plank rock x 2
  • Round 3 – Plank knee pull (left and right side) x 2 and side hip drop (left and right side) x 2
  • Round 4 – Crunches and frog crunches x 2
  • Round 5 – Oblique crunches x 2 and sit-up lift (left and right side) x 2
  • Bonus round – Flutter kicks and cross kicks x 2

It started well but by round 4, my body was begging to be left alone. I made myself push through it.

The sit-up lifts with 1 weight are quite tough and I didn’t want to do the modified version.

The little nuggets of motivational quotes from Autumn really kept me going with day 11.

21 Day Fix Workout Meal Plan – Week 2

I was a little bit more creative with my meal planning for week 2. I had to be since my metabolism was working overtime.

I customize my meal plans based on my diet preferences. My calorie level for 21 Day Fix is 1,200 calories per day.

Breakfast

For 21 Day Fix week 2, my breakfast was tomato and basil soup and a cereal bar. On some days, I had a plain or sesame seed bagel instead.

Tomato and Basil Soup Post Workout

Snacks

My snacks were 1 – 2 handfuls of roasted almonds.

Dinner

Pasta With Feta Final 3

Liquids

Loads of water and I added 1 – 2 cups of bamboo leaf tea to my diet for other health purposes. I also had an odd hankering for ginger ale in week 2.

I generally create my own meal plan according to calorie requirements because of my pickiness with food. 

However, the meal plan that comes with 21 Day Fix is easy to follow and if you need more ideas, you can check out the FIXATE Cookbook.

It’s written by Autumn Calabrese and contains 101 recipes you can make while on the 21 Day Fix program.

“The pain you’re feeling is temporary but quitting lasts forever.”

Are You a Beachbody Coach?

Nope. I have a lot of home workout programs in my rotation and I cannot commit myself to one company’s programs indefinitely.

However, I do love Beachbody workouts and have a lot of their workout DVDs in my collection.

The first Beachbody workout I ever tried was Insanity in 2013. It delivered incredible results and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I gave a breakdown of Beachbody and the workout programs I love at Are Beachbody Workouts Worth It?
