Workout Routine Updates

March 7th, 2010 Posted in Workout Routines 4 Comments »

For those of you who do not check the old routines regularly, please see the updated Men’s Full Body Training for Fat Loss and Women’s Full Body Training for Fat Loss, as I have added example HIIT routines to days 2, 4, and 6.

    Steve, thanks for a wonderful site. I came across it accidently while looking for some info to help keep me inspired to continue losing weight and working out. I’m 35 yrs old, 6’2″ have gone from 217 to 197 since Dec 28. I have followed your “full body training for fat loss” since mid-January. So again, thank you.

    I do have a question. I have a friend who runs a lot of competitive races – from a few miles to full marathons. Several years ago, I ran some with him (at a heavier weight) and I would like to begin training to run competitively again, but I want to continue losing fat. Can you give me your opinion on a possible training schedule when you get a chance? This is what I have put together as a possibility.
    Day 1: Full Body HIIT
    Day 2: Strength Training
    Day 3: Race training
    Day 4: off
    Day 5: Strength Training
    Day 6: Full Body HIIT
    Day 7: Race Training

      I might not do HIIT followed by Race Training, as you might end up overloading on cardio exercises. You wouldn’t want to sprint one day, then do endurance cardio the next day. I would continue to split up HIIT and Race Training with Strength Training. Just my opinion.
