>Metabolic bodyweight training circuits


>Here is my circuit I will aim to do at least twice per week to up my conditioning as well.These types of circuits challenge your muscles (and your lungs :)but not to a level that should affect my weight training. If I notice a strength decrease, I will cut these back or out for a while. I find this a bit of a challeng to do on my own so while I am seeking out a dedicated training partner, the time intervals may vary a bit. It is pretty tough to watch the timer and do this at the same time LOL. While I am upping the intensity again of my workouts, I am also spending less time in the gym which is VERY important to point out. It is all about efficiency really. It is also extremely important to balance this intensity with proper hydration, nutrition and RELAXATION techniques like yoga, meditation and flex-relax. I am also trying to completely cut out my grains (I am “glutarded” ;p) so I am weaning my way off even my oats since I cut out all the other grains a while back already. Fruits and veggies all the way! Basically, if you can’t pick it, pluck it, or shoot it, don’t eat it and oh for those who need a breakdown of the simplest way to be healthier is EAT FOOD NOT FOOD PRODUCTS ;P.This is not necessarily for everyone but for me this is what I need to do. If my energy sucks even with the fruit, I may have to add the oats or millet back in. I have FINALLY gotten some answers now that I have a family doctor so can finally get myself back on track! My metabolic type has changed over the past few years even months and I am working to address this now as well. It is a challenge to have just the right ratios at every meal but I will get there. It is funny how far this has come from when I used to do it via Harold Krystal and George Watson which kind of makes it easier now that it is more popular.
