It's cardio time...

I hit the gym this morning and wasnt surprised to see every piece of cardio machine in use.

But as usual, I felt bad for those people who where on the bikes and the ellipticals going at a very slow, steady pace, probably only burning an extra hundred calories than they would have just sitting in a chair.

And no one looked like they were having fun.

On the other hand, if you looked in the weights area - where I was - that was where all the lean, sculpted folks were. And everyone there was working a LOT harder than the folks on the ellipticals.

Hopefully a few folks in the cardio area will make the connection and try out some resistance training - and be rewarded with better results.

My workout:

Bodyweight warmup, stretches

1) Jumps - 2x4

2) Narrow Stance Back Squat - 2 heavy sets

3A) Front Squat - 2 moderate sets
3B) DB Renegade Row + Spiderman Pushup - 3 sets

4A) Back Extension - 3 sets
4B) Plank or Plank on Ball - 1 set plank, 2 sets ball plank

That's it.

Doing a teleseminar with Scott Colby from at noon EST and then heading back to Toronto and filming TT for Abs DVD tonight. Trying to wrap that up before the New Year.

Train hard but safe,


PS - And just say NO to cardio unless you really, really love it.

PPS - Don't forget...
