Ah... I wish I could do that but I start one thing but can't continue with it. I go to the gym and lift as much as I can and I play ice hockey when it's in season if that counts haha.

Yeah, I'm insanely consistent. I'm lucky to have a job that requires me to keep a high level of conditioning so we have gyms at work. I also have a membership, so I follow a pretty strict routine. I go for strength and size, then I cut down. I usually go in 12 week increments before switching my routine. During strenghth training I'm around 220 lbs and then I go down to 205 lbs. Right now I'm in the middle of cutting weight and working on muscle endurance. I'm doing this for the next 12 weeks or so just alternating weeks.

Week 1_________________Week 2
Day 1 - Upper Body_________Day 1 - Lower Body
Day 2 - Cardio_____________Day 2 - Cardio
Day 3 - Lower Body_________Day 3 - Upper Body
Day 4 - Cardio_____________Day 4 - Cardio
Day 5 - Upper Body_________Day 5 - Lower Body
Day 6 - Cardio_____________Day 6 - Cardio
Day 7 - Off________________Day 7 - Off

Looking to start P90X or Crossfit in the future because I'm a big fan of circuits and functional fitness. Maybe this winter just as maintanence. I do scale it back a hell of a lot during the middle of the winter and summer. Snowboarding/Downhill MTB/Hangovers, etc.

****Where do you work that it requires you to stay fit and so on?

P90X is official, but hard to stay on track with that just cause it takes a lot of meal preparation time, and I dont have a stove...I have a ghetto kitchen lol. But I do plan on getting started with P90X once I move and get a better kitchen. I know that sounds like an excuse and all, but trust me, when all you got is a toaster oven and hot plate it makes P90X impossible

Let me know how P90X works out if you decide to start it

I alternate spin classes and a body pump class(lower weights more reps)6 days a week...just now able to get back into it so I squeeze in some PT crap before and after for a bit. Getting your muscle to return blows....it's slow going and pretty damn stupid. Just got told to start walking sideways and backwards on the treadmill.....as if the gymmies don't think I am weird enough....lol! Now diet.......liquid for me....I like to drink my calories! Oh ya and class starts at 5:15am...I get my ass up around 4:20...no particular reason though.....

I work for the fire dept. It's great being able to get to work and hit the treadmill or the weights first thing in the morning. Good motivation to have other people there to workout with too. Only thing that sucks is getting a Call halfway through a run or workout. I probably won't be starting P90X before the new year, but i'll definitely post how it goes. Didn't know there was a nutrition component to it though, thanks for the heads up.

After a run on the treadmill I usually like to walk quickly backwards for a minute or two during my cooldown. Really feel it in the legs for sure. Don't worry about how you look to the juice monkeys sitting on equipment. Just do what works for you.

As for liquid calories, I can't agree enough. for me happiness comes in 2 forms, 1)Pow Day 2) 26 of good Rum. That's why snowboard trips are so epic. I've realized somethings are just out of my control.

i'm really in a workout slump right now. i've hit a plateau and its really affecting my motivation. I just starting mixing it up in hope of breaking through it. I switched from 3 sets of 10 reps to 2 sets of 20 reps mostly to increase endurance for climbing. my number one goal for the next month is to get my nutrition back on track tho. summer is usually just crazy with always being on the go and stuff and its made it tough to eat right.

If you hit a plateau just increase your weights, dont increase your reps and sets. Thats virtually the same thing. Even if you are trying to increase your endurance its true that more reps will do that, but you need to either change your workout or increase your weights. Muscles have an incredible memory so you wont be doing anything to them by doing the same thing over and over again.

yeah i changed the reps and sets to focus more on climbing conditioning since i cant climb as much as i would like to. To work through the plateau i need to change my workout.

I'm in a slump too TJ... I can't workout due to surgery. It's amazing how beneficial exercise is to sleeping. Last night, I hit the bed just before 10:30p.m. and didn't get to sleep until almost 3a.m. I KNOW it's due to my inability to exercise and hopefully I won't look like Christian Bale in the Machinist by the end of this recovery... I've already lost 5 or 6 pounds in a week and a day.

I agree with you, Infamous, that the protein shakes can be bad in some ways. I definitely don't recommend them unless someone's objective is bulking. I stopped drinking them as much earlier in the summer because I wanted to enter more of a leaning and conditioning phase... it has worked very well.

Now I have to get strong for the season...!!!
