    Weighted vest, combos, circuits, plyos and bag work

    After four years in my last journal - it's time to start a new one. My new workout style will incorporate combos, circuits, some heavy weight once in a while, jump roping, weighted vest exercises, interval training, core training and much more. Hopefully no workout will be the same and I'll progress in lifting faster, lifting more weight and have fun doing it. My goals are to stay fit and lean out.

    Weighted in at 190 (down 4 lbs from last week)

    Here's a link to my old journal for a reference.

    Interesting!

    Where did you get this idea, and what will your diet be during this period?

    I just want to try something new. I combined a bunch of different exercises that I like and some new ones.

    My diet will be "cleaner". Normally its:

    Protein Shake and oatmeal with PB for breakfast plus coffee
    Yogurt and banana or apple for a snack
    Salad with nuts and soup for lunch
    Zone bar for snack plus coffee
    (WORKOUT) then a protein shake with OJ, banana and fro-yogurt
    Dinner is a veggie, whole wheat noodle and chicken/fish/or Steak
    Protein Shake before bed

    Weekends it's ok - usually Pizza on Friday nights but good foods for the rest of the weekend - a few beers on Saturday in the summer time.

    I think my "extra cardio" days will help. Speaking of that - it's time to go get some exercise instead writing about it.

    Do it!

    I should have clarified - I meant are you eating at maintenance, bulking or cutting - and what macros you'll be running.

    Let us know how this works for you.

    I will me "maintaining" - or just above. I average about 3000 cals a day.

    It's good to see someone new in my journals. What's your program like ?

    I'm cutting, so my workouts are short and heavy at the moment. Following the basic guidelines in this post on my blog, but I only do 3x5 and 3x8 for most movements, plus sprint intervals, bicycle sprints, hill repeats and complexes (one of each) spread out throughout the week - the cardio stuff is explained in here.

    Cardio - 40 minutes

    20 - one minute intervals (walk wearing a 30lb weighted vest)
    (Run for a minute / walk for a minute) = 1 interval
