You are welcome!
I improved a lot! Got almost an additional round. I figured out how to do the double-unders so that was a big plus.
After reviewing this vid, I will have to redo. One of the rules is my buddy has to stay in the frame of the video and he doesn't :( Repost on Saturday. Maybe I'll get a better score!
sorry for the late reply. I do think laying on something padded can help. I sure was :)
I have to admit, I learned about collapsing the muscle. Building muscle density (so less bulk) could be obtained by extremely high reps (100+) with low weight. This also builds endurance. We do similar workouts here but usually not that high reps. This burns a ton of calories but also causes adaptation (which burns fat after the workout). You will want to increase your training volume to 500-1000 reps per workout in 30 min timeframe. That would help.
Great work! You'll be sore tomorrow. Make sure you switch it up and do a different workout next time. Come back to this and keep challenging yourself to get better. Another one of my top workouts is called "Rainy day legs".
it has happened. Fortunately that "box" was plastic and smooth. Exercise can be hazardous but so can not exercising! :)
hmm - it might be your brand of protein. I don't have this problem. If I'm using pure whey, I blend with water. If I'm blending it with milk, I use a blender and typically add (1) bannana (2) peanut butter (3) oatmeal. There is no foaming issue. What type of protein are you using?
AMAZING! That is some discipline! That's about 12 pounds per month or 3 pounds a week. That is some rapid weight loss. Please tell all you were doing. You must have had perfect eating and keeping up with the exercises religiously!
Kandee Johnson has helped me a lot. I do believe the message of simple, effective workouts with a healthy lifestyle needs to be given to many. There are so many lies and expensive gimmicks that only leave people with less money and worse health that I hope I can offer some clarity in a confusing place.
Though you can spot train to build up a muscle, you can't really spot train for losing fat. (check out my vid burning 3x as much fat for the exception to this rule) Belly fat comes mostly from eating refined carbs like high fructose corn syrup, bread and pasta and from stress brought on by lack of sleep. Reduce your intake of those and start running sprint intervals (15 seconds of all out sprint with 1 min of rest, repeat 10 rounds) instead of distance to increase the burn.
I did this one with my guys today. LT posted 11 rounds, Taylor 12 and I got 14.
Workout out in this way trains the specific muscle directly, as well as keep the heart rate high, sometimes very high. You will gain cardio strength, burn fat and gain muscle strength all at the same time.
