10.30 – Bootcamp Bodyweight And Reflecting On Cardio

Tags: , , ,

The one question I get most often, or the comment I hear most often from people trying to lose weight is how much cardio should I do? Either that or I get people who rely on 15-45 minutes on the treadmill or worse, the elliptical to get the job done and wonder why they are […]

10.24/25 – Rest and Bootcamp Cardio (That’s Not Too Complicated, Is It?)

Tags: ,

Last night was warm again, I suppose its a little redundant since summer in Toronto has seen weeks over 30 degrees in the past. It was 34 in the shade yesterday, that’s about 93 degrees for those from the 70s. It was cardio, and although we have been avoiding doing real cardio classes due to […]

R9D50 – Bootcamp 2.11.1 Maybe I’m Imagining Things (3 things)

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

So part way during the bootcamp class I became aware that I was struggling a little more than I think I should be. In my exhausted state I figured it was because of my lax approach the last few weeks (I only managed 3 workouts last week) and that my conditioning was starting to suffer. […]

R9D39/40 – X2 Shoulders + Arms Plus Bootcamp 2.8.1 (Cardio)

Tags: , , ,

This was my second time doing the shoulders and arms workout and I have to admit I am disappointed that the arms workout doesn’t include any dips. For myself, I find dips to be second only to close grip bench for building massive tricep strength. The fixation that Tony has with tricep extensions is annoying […]

R9D27 – Bootcamp 2.5.1 Cardio

Tags: , ,

<— That’s how a cardio workout should end, not stepping off the treadmill with your magazine and your bottle of water with a slight glow to your face… Today’s bootcamp was gruelling. Sometimes I think of things that sound like fun without really realizing just how difficlut it is goin got be especially when combined […]

Cardio and Kettlebells. Don’t Suffer On The Treadmill.

Tags: , , , , ,

Pavel Tsatsouline calls kettlebell workouts “cardio without the dishonour of aerobics”. I would extend that to the dishonour of running on a treadmill or even worse, the pathetic excuse for a machine that is the elliptical. My favourite quote of his is still: “If you don’t have good judgement, why don’t you stay on the machines you big sissy?” […]
