I've been really psyched about going to the gym lately, but I need some ideas on how to supplement my workouts without completely killing myself. My current program has alternating workouts, as follows:

A: 5x5 squats, 5x5 bench press, 5x5 rows
B: 5x5 squats, 5x5 overhead press, 1x5 deadlifts

Weight ideally increases by 5 lbs each time, but sometimes I'll stall... no biggie, really.

Anyways, those workouts are too intense to do on sequential days, it's more of an every-other-day thing (3x a week, effectively). What I need is some ideas on stuff to do on in-between days. Cardio is an option, though I really love strength training. Any thoughts?

Amazing workout. I do it at least twice a week, 5-6 sets with a minute rest between sets.

Looks pretty cool. I might try that -- would have to start with empty bar, though, as I certainly can't do military press @ 95 lbs... laugh.gif

Oh and I have a girl crush now. There's another gal at the gym that I've seen twice over the last week. She spends a lot of time in the free weights area as well and she is *gorgeous*. Very well toned. smile.gif

Anyways, do you think cardio or that MMA workout would serve me better for my off-days? I'm obviously looking to gain strength, but I'm also strongly interested in burning off some of this stubborn belly fat.

You're the pro cyberstalker... come on!

I love to hear women hitting the weights. All the little girly girls who don't because they think they're going to become manly or have huge biceps are idiots. They're wasting a huge fat burning opportunity.

Holy hell, Zach, that is one bitch of a workout. I could only do two sets @ 30 lb before I felt like puking.

30lb bar? 15lbs on each end of a 45lb bar? 30lbs on each end of a 45lb bar?


It's an amazing workout. twisted.gif

30 lb bar. I tried to start with an empty standard 45 lb bar, but couldn't do the upright rows properly with it.

Right on.

Yeah, it's a killer workout that will build good functional strength and lots of muscular endurance.
