very good article
I need to get around to building a sled... Been wanting to do two sled dragging days in the morning before work, just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm a slacker.
sled is coming this summer for me. i'm gonna start messing around with a GPP circuit 2-3x a week. mostly stair runs, burpees, mountain climbers, and some sort of scorpion movement. followed by dynamic stretching, foam roller/pvc back stuff
Cardio also helps with latic acid. So if you lifting heavy you should be running too.
Most people cut with food, but the best way to cut is with cardio and blanced diet. No reason you should be eating 5000cals and then cut food down to 1800cals because you have a gut. You will lose most if not all your gains.
sounds like what I want to work up to... figure for right now I'll do 2x/week jogging, 2x/week sled dragging & misc other gpp stuff. I hate cardio, I think this will work much better.
more stuff for gpp noobs
I'm going to start doing laps around my house with a wheelbarrow filled with junk. I've been wanting some stuff to do during the weekend that doesn't involve going to the gym, this should work well.
BUT WALKING IS CATABOLIC AND DESTROYS MUSCKLES!!! lc
everyone knows that girls don't know anything about muscles
i forgot where this link was. i have something to do now.
please note that those complex workouts (Mann's article, Cosgrove's etc...) are a full workout in themselves. A GPP circuit like you will find in my log or sled dragging, etc is great for off days. putting a complex in on one of your off days is just like having a full workout that day
i anticipate sled to be on an off-day. i get really antsy between days, so this would be beneficial.
Theres an audio interview over at T-Nation.com by Dave Tate about GPP and powerlifters/normal athletes. It's about 20 minutes long, and very worth the listen.
