Exercise Programs

Post  Scorpio on Sat Mar 28, 2009 4:00 pm

I just ordered Tony Horton's 90-day boot camp. It looks like a well-rounded program.
It includes strength training, aerobic conditioning and even some yoga.

You can keep those donuts! Surprised

Before my early morning jog, I start my day each day with a beignet and a cup of coffee.

BodyBot

Can you really burn fat fast with a BodyBot Workout?
Yeah, I know what you're thinking, 4-minute workouts to burn fat? What a crock of B.S., right? While I'm not a fan of 4-minute workouts OR Ryan Lee, they CAN come in handy. So, I agree it's a crock of b.s. - but only to an extent.

You see, the BodyBot program is set up to shock your metabolism to burn more calories for up to 24-48 hours AFTER your workout. So the workout itself doesn't immediately burn tons of calories or fat. It's what it causes your body to do afterwards that makes it so effective.

First off, you need more than just a workout to burn fat. There are a lot of variables that determine how much fat you burn. And nutrition is a MAJOR Part of fat loss.

BodyBot Program Doesn't Include The Nutrition Information You Need.

So even if you have only a basic understanding of proper nutrition, have other means and protocols that you use in conjunction with BodyBot, then, yeah it'll work.

I actually like this program, because I have an understanding of both nutrition and exercise. I'll generally create a few workouts to do per week and use them as my cardio program for the day.

But even if you have a basic understanding of how to put together a program, this program is great for changing things up. However, I'd only recommend performing the workouts a few times per week as a cardio substitute.

Normally, I vary my workout time. Some days I'll do 60 minute workouts, some days I'll do 20 minute workouts, and other days I'll just do 4 minutes at a time. That's when the BodyBot comes in handy.

Altogether, Bodybot is highly recommended. This easy to use, user friendly, fitness software will give you the motivation and results that's needed to succeed in your weight loss program. You can read more about this program here

BodyBot is an excellent fitness program.

Is anyone familiar with the Gabriel Method?

I heard of the John Gabriel method. The jury's still out on that one.
BodyBot rocks.

For those of you who have tried the program, what are you using to do the pull-ups?

I thought about buying the suggested detachable pull-up bar, but am hesitant because I don't really trust that it won't crack my door frame. (I'm a solid 210 at the moment)

Also, has anyone tried the bands in the seated position? I just can't see those things being able to mimic 200+ lbs of resistance, regardless of how far back you stretch them, without breaking.

Good to hear that you use it "frequently". Many times I've bought equipment and it winds up gathering dust.
So are you pleased with your results?

An adjustable pull-up bar for a door. Muscle confusion actually works.

If Dan requires 3 visits to keep himself pencil thin, than this not so SlimJim should be going everyday.

If you want to get your body ready for the beach this summer, I suggest this
program. Takes Tony Horton's PS90X to another level.

That program works the same as the P90X. It's all about muscle confusion.
Switching from one mode of exercise to another.
