This is what I call a "Bad Idea Jeans" workout.
Do you remember that skit from Saturday Night Live back in the 90's? It was one of my favorites. It included classic quotes such as:
Guy #3: "Well, he's an ex free-base addict, and he's trying to turn around, and he needs a place to stay for a couple of months."
Image on Screen: BAD IDEA!
(Haha, and no, they were not talking about Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford...)
The skit is worth Googling if you've never watched it...although I must warn you, it's politically incorrect.
And speaking of warnings, this morning I had to give my good friend Dion a classic CB Workout WARNING.
Dion is back on the fat loss scene after letting himself slip for a few months, and a bodybuilder gave him a terrible workout. It included 15 sets of chest (including the shoulder-KILLING bodybuilder barbell bench press) followed by 9 sets of triceps exercises.
"No, no, NO! Do NOT train like this," I told him.
"You're almost 40 years old, you haven't lifted in months, you have a wife and young son, and you have an important career! That's a Bad Idea workout, guaranteed to hurt you, and besides, it's built for a steroid-using bodybuilder, not someone looking to lose fat," I lectured.
Like you, Dion needs to use research-proven 21st-Century fat loss methods, not something out of the 90's like a classic SNL skit.
Here's what I recommend that he and you do to lose fat. It's a proven workout from an expert, the hot, sexy, lean & lovely Neghar Fanooni
In this Kettlebell-Bodyweight circuit, you'll rest as little as possible between exercises and you will complete 3-5 rounds total. (And yes, you can sub in dumbbells in place of KB's.)
1) KB Goblet Squats - 10 reps
2) KB 1-Arm Row - 10 reps per side
3) KB Goblet Reverse Lunge - 10 per side
4) Push-up or Decline Push-up - As Many Reps as Possible
5) KB Swing - 20 reps
That's a REAL fat loss workout, one that will give you results safely and efficiently. Just say NO to Bad Idea bodybuilder workouts from the 1990's.
Train smart and safe,
