View Full Version : Fat Loss Stack

10-27-2008, 01:25 PM
Just got my fat loss stack today, can't wait till in the AM. My starting stats are 6'4" and 244# as of this morning.
I'm going to start out with 3200 Cals on training days and 3000 on none training days. I will probably do a 10x3 workout and HITT on the off days, with maybe one day of steady state.
Does that sound good or would someone have another recomendation?

Can you post up your full training split so that we can take a look at it?

I can, but it is Chad Waterbury's 10x3 for fatloss, if that helps. If not I can post the whole thing.

I'm not familiar with that program - if you can post up just what days you are training and your objective or volume for each day that would be helpful.

Day 1
Chin up
Front squat

Day 2 Jump rope

Day 3 Off

Day 4
Bent rows
Military Press

All sets are 10x3 with 45 sec rest. You start with 75% of 1RM.

10-30-2008, 05:31 PM
Monday: Tempo (1200m) + ab circuit (700-800 reps total)
Tuesday: Upper body focused lifting
Wednesday: Short hills + short speed (accel.) + lower body focused lifting
Thursday: tempo (1000m) + ab circuit (500 reps total)
Friday: Medium hills + Max Velocity + lower body/back lifting
Saturday: rest
Sunday: Accel. + max velocity + full body lifting

Now to clear up confusions...

Tempo is running at 70% speed on grass, over any distance, generally 100m is ideal. The distance you see in brackets is the total amount of meters you should have run, so you can do the 1200m in 12x100m at 70% speed. Or do 6x200m or whatever way you want to break it up. The ab circuit is broken up into these runs and done inbetween, break the reps up with simple exercises and with no recovery inbetween different exercises.

Accel. means acceleration, so meaning in this workout you will have a focus on acceleration as well, sprinting distances of 10-30m. Max velocity means hitting top speed, so running at 40-60m generally or flying runs, but I wont get into those right now...
