I agree, I think these complexes work really well to burn calories, but in order to stay in cardiovascular shape, I still think running is a great for of cardio. Something else I add into my cardio portion is instead of just running, I'll go get on a treadmill and walk at 3.5-4.0mph and 15 incline and burn more calories than if I was to just run on a 0-1.0 incline which I'll do no less than 8.0 mph. Its feels more along the lines of a strength training exercise but it gets my heartrate over 180 and it works well to condition the legs.

This is the complex I will probebly enjoy the most, and you have a 185 pound power snatch thats very impressive.

This makes a lot of sense to me. My friend Tyler Callahan and I used complexes(sort of) when we were lifting together and we were both noticing major improvements pretty rapidly. I have myself in a situation now where I need to lose some serious fat as quickly as possible (talking thirty plus pounds). My original plan was to change my diet to only meats and green vegetables with a piece of bread or two/half a cup of rice every other day and to do a lot of running, but now I am wondering if maybe I would be better off with limiting calories and getting in the gym and doing complexes and running my ass off. Anybody have any input here?
