This month, the month after P90X3, I’m taking it a bit… not easy… simpler.
I do 1 muscle group per day: bicep, tricep, chest, back, abs, shoulders, legs. Then I do the elliptical for 30-60 mins.
For the muscle group (which works out to be each group once per week), I do heavy weight for about 12-16 reps – until I can’t really do anymore w/ good form. Then I rest for about a minute.
I repeat that until I can’t do more than 8 reps (usually about 2-3 sets). Then I go down in weight and do it again.
I do a total of about 10 sets which takes about 15 mins. It’s similar to a strip set.
The idea is that it’s a good breakdown of the muscle, but also a bit more ‘active.’ Overall, it’s just fairly simple.
I’ve kept my diet about the same:
- protein+water, coffee
- protein, shake after workout
- veg/protein lunch
- green tea in the afternoon
- reasonable dinner (salad or similar)
At least, that’s the intention. 🙂
I’m using ON Amino Energy before my workout, but not really any other supplements.
Maintain, loose some fat and keep it low-key.
