In Topic: getting a little more fit, and muscle recoveration?

24 July 2009 - 12:20 PM

The 300 workout is a single workout, a challenge - it even says it in the title. Shouldn't be done on a regular basis. you feel like crap because your most likely going to failure on most exercises every other day and not giving your body enough time to fully recover. Again its a challenge, something to do once in awhile to switch things up - ie, dont look to enhance recovery, look to change your program.

To gain strength and muslce start lifting some weights and eating. Bench Press, Military Press, Squat, Deadlift. No body built muscle doing just bodyweight exercises with no additional weight. Google, Ripptoes Starting strength and do that workout program. Also putting on muscle is a slow process which you have total regulation of. If you get "retardedly" big its because you made it happen. You can get strong without getting big, you can put 2, 5, 10 lbs of mucle on your frame without looking like a body builder.

To add to the swimming, throw some weight in a nylon bag/old back pack and run around in your pool. Very low impact too.

If you ask me Jump Rope is king at burning calories/fat. Walking, sprints, jogging, jump rope, intense bodyweight curcuits, barbell complexes, biking, roller blading, etc.

If you question the bodyweight circuits and barbell complexes, try em... get you throwing up faster then high intensity sprints. Great conditioning tool.

Want to get fast- heres the secret.
Eat right. Heavy compound lifts. HIIT. Thats it.


Amen.

For those wondering, HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training.


Running for long durations won't make you faster. Pick 25-400m sprints and work those with high intensity.

In Topic: How to lose five to ten pounds in a week

Green tea diet.... ha. To think that just drinking green tea will wipe away the fat is rediculous. First of all, the body flucuates regularaly in weight anywhere from 1-3 lbs without changing diet and such. Now if your drinking 8 cups of green tea on top of the other drinks you have throughout the day, its a lot more liquid in your diet, and your body will most likely flush some of the access water out of your system; hence weight lost. On top of that caffine found in those 8 cup/glasses can add up to quite a bit depending on how long you brew the tea (20-60mg). Now caffine is also a diuretic which (to keep it simple) makes your kidneys put more water in your urine then normal; hence you loose more water weight, which means more lost weight.

Now that you've gone through the whole week long green tea diet, you wake up a couple days later and oops, you've gained back that weight... that water weight.

BTW, There are also studies out there that conclude that green tea may not contribute to fat loss. The verdict is suspect, use green tea if you want, don't use it if you dont want to. But make no mistake about it, green tea by itself will not be effective. Utilize it with a multitude of fat loss tools; exercise, calorie deficit, healthy foods.

Also remember "weight loss" is crap as loss in weight will included water weight, which can be easily regained, loss in muscle mass, which only makes you fatter... and if your losing mucle most likely weaker. It should be fat loss that you seek.



If you want another way to loose 3-8 lbs in a week, drink 2 gallons of water for 5 days, on days 6 and 7 just drink 8 glasses. Same if not better result then this green tea diet without the brewing every couple of hours.
