Just getting back into working out after a few years of 80 hour work weeks, and way too many trips through the drive through. I was still sporadically in the gym lifting heavy. I actually found that my newfound blubber helped me lift heavier then I ever had.
Time for a 180.
My goal is to lose about 40 lbs and get leaner not bigger. My only problem is that I get incredibly bored doing cardio. I lose focus running, cycling, and swimming.
I'm doing a trial period at a indoor crossfit gym and so far I really like it. It's only 20 minutes of actual work out, but I'm feeling more beat up then spending 2 hours at the gym. They push me harder then I would push myself.
The only downside is that crossfit is really expensive. I could probably hire a personal trainer for the same price. I really like the competitive nature of this place though, and I have a really sporadic schedule.
I'm wondering if people have had good results with crossfit/insanity/p90x or any other low rep high intensity workouts. I just want to make sure that I'm not wasting time/money.
Before you say it I have also totally overhauled my diet. No more beer, and mostly fresh fruits and veggies for the next few months.
I think I'm good on the diet, but mostly want to become more bruce lee, and less Bruce banner.
What worked for you to get leaner?
