It’s been the holy grail of every gym trainee since the dawn of time. The hope that some type of exercise could reduce a particular bit of fat that you don’t want.
Today’s workout is Strict Cindy, where the pull-ups are strict (no kipping), so it’s 5 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats amrap ( as many rounds as possible for 20 minutes.
I don’t think there is an effective healthy eating regime that overlooks protein. For a meal or snack to be healthy and contribute to weight management and emotional regulation, I’d suggest it should be a combination of natural slow release carbs, healthy fat and a bit of protein. I’d also suggest that most healthy eating regimes are probably based around 6 meals a day (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack)
In our obsessive pursuit of stronger muscles and hearts, we’ve failed to understand how to train and feed connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage.
Almost everyone is told that the tendon doesn’t have much of a blood supply and takes ages to recover from an injury. We do nothing with this information.
According to the tales of “old housewives” and the assurances of hippies, food does have a supportive role in helping tendon pain resolve itself.
There are famous anti-inflammatory foods that, when combined with a healthier lifestyle and actually doing specific exercises, really, really helps.
The last cycle had these 3 workouts
This was simply a way of disguising 10 minutes of push ups:
max push ups,
4 shuttle runs
Amrap 10 minutes
The DWF, or daily workout and food is aimed at giving you some basic conditioning ideas. For some it’s the only thing they do, for many it’s just part of your training day.
Most days you also need to work on skill ( I often focus on gymnastics), Strength and therapy drills: I need always focus on my vulnerability to Plantar fasciitis, Patello-femoral and back pain. By having a sensible self applied therapy regime, you can stop the problems before they start.
Its been a fun three days. I hope these workouts inspire you to start training. You don’t always need a gym. If you join the mailing list, I’ll try and keep you updated with cool and effective training ideas
Three fantastic metabolic conditioning workouts! Enjoy. Tweak as you need to
Ive had a chat with some of my followers, all of whom have said they would prefer to get the DWF’s in their 4 days blocks, so people can see in advance whats coming next.
so I’ll publish this series on the rest day. In each post you’ll get 3 workouts, and a food hint.
