I'm working out as my schedule is packed in the afternoon/evening. I am doing the 20 min cardio pre work out and directly after the workout. Is this program recommending that I do 20min in the morning and 20 at night? Is there anything wrong with doing the cardio right after the workout?
I do my 20 mins of cardio right before and right after my workout as well. I dont think it hurts any, as long as your getting it in, thats all that matters.
You should be doing you're second cardio 5hrs or more after you're first one and should be doing first one right after breakfast.
I do not think anything "should be" or "must be" done at any given moment.
It is about how you feel about it.
Just like anything else in BBulding I guess!
If you feel like doing 20mins cardio preworkout, then 20mins immediatly post-workout then go for it.
As long as it is intense enough for you to keep your heartrate up the whole time go for it!
Change things around, experience.
Just as you'd do with food : you do not eat the same thing over & over, and that doesn't matter as long as you hit your Macros at the end of the day.
No matter the timing, what matters is to get things in, and be happy about what you do!
Good luck man!
This program, which I have almost completed, tells you to do 20 min cardio directly before and after you lift. Don't cheat on your rest days and skip cardio! This thing works! Good luck!
As a long distance runner, while training for a marathon, I experienced better results spacing out my cardio to begin and end my training day. Think of it this in a way that is color-coded.
When you are at rest, your body is Blue, light walking, green, jogging/running orange/red
The great thing about our bodies is that while it can take a while to get up to speed, our bodies want to maintain whatever it has been doing without us thinking about it.
So if you run in the morning 20 min or another form of cardio, your body quickly moves to red and spends most the rest of the day slowly fading back to blue.
Well, before you are even able to get to blue, it is time for your workout so your body quickly readjusts itself in preparation for the strain and is able to maximize its readiness. FAT BURN ALL DAY this way.
Keep that engine warm in other words.
When I did cardio before and after my gym workout, I found I had more cramps the next day and recovery suffered versus when I spaced mine out.
(Disclaimer I did all my training without supplements so take that as you want)
Every body is different, though.
Try it both ways. See what works best by tracking your changes in a week for each. Let us all know how it works out for you and maybe it will help someone else. Good Luck!
I don't think it is recommended to do cardio just before weight training. If you do you will not have enough energy to lift as well as it may put your body into catabolic state which is not good if you are trying to build. After the weight traning, have your protein shake immediately and then it is ok to do cardio. That is exactly what Kris does!
i just wish there were honest workout plans that didnt involve bodybuilders who are jacked up on steroids. i do not believe this guy or anyone for that matter will "get jacked" to this level in 12 weeks. fcuk outta here
Where does it say you will get jacked? This is a cutting program meant for dropping weight. It also states that your weight will probably be much lower than what he is using. Just because someone is muscular doesn't mean that they used steroids. Who are you to take that hard work and dedication away from them by saying they used steroids?
Do you think people just figured out a routine and than become this big? He says at the beginning of the video hes been doing this for 15 years
Nowhere does he claim that it took him 12 weeks to be where he is or whatever "get jacked" means. It is actually pretty naive even assume that.
Started my second round of this program. Lost over 30 lbs overall and definitely gained muscle througout the program. Did DTP after my first round now starting round two. Definitely feeling this program. Im a retired Cheerleader and im in the best shape of my life. definitely rehabbing my old injuries and feeling stronger than ever!
I've done 1 week of this as a precursor to really get my head around exactly what each day should be like and I'm liking it so far. I was previously doing Hellraiser and I felt like I made some solid foundational gains, but I definitely leveled off and this seems like it'll really push me beyond. I really do recommend running through what I consider a "crash course" week just to really understand what you're in for. My biggest contributor to failure in the gym is the same as going Christmas shopping. Not knowing what the hell you're going for in the first place!
I am a women and I am in the 8th week and done just fine. Kris never said that this was "mainly" for men. I have gained a ton of muscle and feel great! Praise Jesus for giving women the ability to lift heavy weights as well! Give it go, it's worth it!
You do, to a certain extent. You are flexible in the whole grain carbs and the lean cut meat, but you are only substituting within those groups. My meals usually look like this:
Whole grain pasta
Ground turkey meatballs made with oatmeal & egg whites
Grilled chicken breast
Drained tuna in water
Whole grain crackers
Get the idea? I usually add salt & pepper or homemade salsa for taste, but you could cook with spices if you wanted. No dairy, sugars, fruits, etc. It's bland but simple and to the point. I like how Kris mentions that he eats for nutrition, not for taste or enjoyment. If you have that same mindset you will get used to this meal plan. If not, you will join the majority of America who is not in shape!
