Guys. You CAN spot rediuce belly fat. It's called liposuction and/ or tummy tuck.
I've got a gym at work with machines and treadmill and elliptical. Any suggestions for quick 15-20 min workouts?
I am on Winter Break from grad school. I have one month to really up my game. Today was shoulders and biceps. Yesterday I did Plyo from P90X and then pullups in sets of 10 until i couldnt do any more, then same on the assistance machine until I had it set at 135 lbs of help. I think I did about 120 total pullups. /beastmode.
Or if you have even less time I recommend Tabata training:
1) Run in place for 20 seconds
2) rest for 10 seconds
3) Mountain climbers for 20 seconds
4) rest for 10 seconds
REPEAT #1-4 4 times.
I am a big fan of HIIT. I am also a big fan of compound weight movements. Its really a simple matter of work. When you do a 200 pound powerclean or a 300 lb squat 10 times you are doing ALOT more work, engaging ALOT more muscle, burning ALOT more calories, promoting ALOT more testosterone production, stoking ALOT more basal metabolism post-workout than any amount of ez bar curling or nautilus stuff can do.
Big compound movements (obviously the weight is about pushing yourself, not a number - you might be able to bench 400 pounds of only 160 - whatever)- are efficient.
High intensity interval training is efficient.
Dumbell curls, tricep extensions, slow jogging or ellipticals all "work" - they just need to be done for hours longer than these other methods. If you love doing that stuff - knock yourself out. If you want to get results quickly from your exercise - intense and brief. Heavy and compound/bodyweight stuff. In my opinion.
Chest abs and cardio today.
I hate people who curl on the squt rack. My back pain mostly gone. All my lifts have gone up. I am like at 270 for bench press and 300 for squat. Those being a 1 rep max. I plan on cutting during spring. I have never tried it any tips?
The whole idea is a challenging weight, compound movements, short burst (15 seconds) followed by short recovery (45 seconds) which is one cycle build to ten cycles?
I'm familiar with Tabata and HIIT but did not think of it. Thanks.
I finally got my p90x in the mail the other day, but I went on a punishing bender out of stress. It starts this week. The diet part is confusing me a bit though.

ll that training, regardless of the sport, may pay off in extra years, according to two recent studies.
You could do pull-up, burpees, squats, etc. Doesn't have to be powercleans. They were just an example.
