Rol0 saidI started this program on Tuesday and I'm pretty sore... I hadnt been in the gym for ages; it's awesome that there's a forum for it
I have a question: Why does the workout include specifically elliptical machine? On tuesday the gym was totally packed and I didnt feel like waiting for the next machine, so I just ran around campus for 30 minutes... is that acceptable?
This workout has a full-body focus. The resistance portion has one exercise for each of the major body parts and you work your full body every workout. The elliptical machine, because of the arm movement, fits into this program nicely, but is by no means required IMO. Cardio is cardio, if you ask me, so if you don't have an elliptical machine, any other cardio exercise will do. If it involves both upper and lower body, all the better.
I'm going to start the "Strength Foundation" workout in a week's time, I'm extatic!
Anyway I'm going to start at the university gym and I noticed that we also have some cardio on a sixth day (more commonly would be a Saturday). Would it be ok to skip that 30 minute cardio day, coz I do not want to have to stay going up to the university just for a 30 minute cardio.
Also I'd like to know if on the days that we have just cardio we can add some exercises for other body parts not mentioned in the program. For example, I'd like to work on my glutes, start getting a rock hard ass!
And about the glutes, the seated leg press that's on this program works them out... believe me, IM SO SORE FROM THERE! lol Just make sure to push with your heels and u'll be workin that rock hard ass out =P
AirForceGuy75 saidI just started this program starting today. I'm taking my health and body more serious then ever. I just spent about 6months in Iraq. While there I did go to the gym but the workout partners I had were way to advance for me. So, I'm hoping this program will give me a good basis to be able to do the strong and lean program. Any support and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
txguy1605 saidso is this one-rep max the max amount of weight i can do in just one rep? once i calculate it, do i use that same number for all exercises where it asks for it?
