Day 231: Why Skipping Is Great For Circuit Training


Today was a great day "at the office". I followed my daily action plan with 100% compliance.

I ate clean throughout the whole day and got in my scheduled workout which was "Fat Loss Circuit Training: Part 2" - from the Metabolic Surge training program I am following for M3: Phase 1.

This type of training is high volume, high intensity coupled with 40 seconds of high intensity cardio during the rest periods. The workouts always end up the same for me once I am a pool of sweat!

Workout Tip: If you are following a similar program that calls for cardio during your rest periods I highly recommend doing skipping.

There are so many benefits that go along with skipping like increased cardio capacity, endurance and getting a great set of calves!

However, the reason why I recommend skipping (in a gym environment) is because it is a stationary exercise. This means you don't have go running off to the treadmill, stepper or some other piece of cardio equipment during that vital 40 second period. You will save time and practice good gym etiquette by not "hogging" a machine when you are not using it.

Here are Day 231 pics for June 27, 2007.

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!


P.S. I have yet to implement the real-time accountability aspect of M3 yet (using the clock) as things are real hectic at the moment. I will have it fully implemented by Day 234.
