Need a new workout

Vanilla Gorilla - 1-11-2010 at 04:32 PM

Ok, so i am back in the gym doing mostly cardio, but need to keep up on lifting weights, my problem is I am sick of doing the same workouts. Can anyone suggest a good 4 or 5 day a week program. I plan on doing cardio everyday and have that part figured out.

Goal is build muscle and lose fat.

I hear steroids can help.

Take a look at CrossFit...

They have workouts of the day (WOD) posted on their main site and affiliate gyms through out the country (Raleigh and Durham included). The workouts are pretty serious and will give you a total and efficient workout if thats what your looking for.

However the memberships are quite expensive (100/month) but worthwhile if you are going to go 5 times a week.

What is your experience level as far as weight lifting goes?

I've been doing conditioning with kettlebells lately

10 one arm swings r, l (right and left)
One-minute of jump roping
10 one arm snatches r,l
one-minute of jump roping
10 two-arm swing
one-minute of jump roping
10 one-arm clean and jerk
one minute of jump roping
10 one arm swings r,l

In the beginning take one-minute breaks after each set. A set in this program equals one minute of jump roping followed immediately by a set of a ballistic kettlebell exercise.

This link will take you to a free e book with alot of good info..

Mike Mahler is a great kettlebell guy. Vegan too.

boxing believe it or not i really firmly believe has given me a pretty decent amount of size

i lost like 50 pounds when i got celiacs, and i honest to god believe that boxing is pretty much solely responsible for putting like 25 of it back on (im still down quite a bit though)

i was doing free weights and elliptical (very lightly) for cardio and it seemed like nothing was changing, but as soon as i started boxing....bam! size started coming back

i know that doesnt make a whole lot of sense, but it is what it is
