Jim Stoppani's Shortcut To Shred: Day 2 - Shoulders, Legs, Calves
Yesterday was your introduction to Shortcut to Shred. You got to know the movements and you learned how to incorporate cardio acceleration. Today is your chance to push through the pain and get to know these workouts on a more personal basis.
Use how you felt yesterday and how you feel today to gauge your intensity. If you feel like you didn't even train yesterday, then you know it's time turn up the energy. Try to do more reps during your cardio acceleration, or increase the time. On the other hand, if you feel like you can barely summon the energy to take a deep breath, you know that yesterday may have been too intense. Slow down the cardio acceleration, but don't give it up.
Today's leg workout will push you. The heavy, compound lifts and cardio acceleration exercises will challenge your muscle strength and endurance far beyond what you're accustomed to. Welcome the pain. Yesterday, you made the commitment to start the Shortcut. Today, you make the commitment to see it through. Don't let a little heavy breathing scare you from becoming your best.

jim doesnt put that many videos bro its to bad kris gethin is good for that. but if you pay attention you dont need another video but they are motovational because you get to see someone else doing this insane training lol
I was spoiled by Kris! I mean videos for every day, including off days. Oh well. Day 1 kicked my butt. Looking forward to the next 41 days!
Just completed day one. Some work out thanks a mill jim for putting so much time and effort into this plan. Make sure you bring a load of water youll drink off some amount during this workout. Does it matter what type of cardio you do or is it as long as cardio is done.I mainly used the threadmill to run between sets. Any ideas of a realistic 6 week %bf loss. cheers Peter
should be doing kettle ball swings and jumprope like he showed in the first video.
Created a Body Group for this... Jim Stoppani's Shortcut To Shred.... join. Trying to get people to join who are doing the program so we can get answers and stuff
From my understanding of the program he has said you can really do any form of cardio you want between sets. If you are able to stick with what he has laid out then do that, but if not just do cardio of some sort for 1 min and you should be fine.
As for your Bf% question, if your 28.2% is accurate and up to date and you follow the program and diet, keep your intensity up and push your self then I dont see why you would not be able to drop 4-5% easy or more.
Day 1 I went balls to the wall to gauge the intensity I needed to go. When i got home from the gym I felt sick, I felt like I needed to throw up for an hour after I finished working out. It was hard to force my Post workout shake down. Going to try and slow Day 2 Cardio down just a hair. I don't like feeling like that.
