      I did the "Cosgrove's Evil 8" with 95 lbs (25 on each side). It will kick your ass.
      Wow. That looks really interesting. You can do that instead of cardio? I'm going to have to give that a shot on non lift days.

        Yeah, it kinda serves as a HIIT like workout. I run an easy 1.5 miles before I do it just to get some extra work in.
        When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

          Do you treat it like a standard lifting day? IE; protein shake+carb up after? Or do you just carry on like after a cardio session. Probably a real stupid question.

            carbs are actually more important after a cardio session, so yeah, I sip on a gatorade-creatine mix during my workout and take whey after.

            • yeah i was wondering what the hell do I eat after doing cardio?

              So not take to big of chances, i usually just waited like 1 hr or so and then ate a light salad. Just some spinach and lettuce mixed with some balsamic vinger and extra virgin olive oil.

                you really need carbs after cardio, especially LSD, even moreso than lifting. Honestly, you should always drink a gatorade while doing anything at the gym, studies overwhelmingly support it. If you can make a protein-carb mixture to sip on, even better.

                      haha I'm actually pretty weak in the weight room. I'm 305-310 somewhere in between there. I lost a lot of weight being away from football.

                      • I did the P90x abs and Ploymetrics work out...wow that **** is crazy. The cardio one was pretty weak, but these two i tried and liked. I'm still doing my lifting 5x5 on MWF. But i needed to do a change up on the cardio days the ploy **** is a plus.

                        I'm thinking about doing that thing Rob posted earlier in the day and then around night before bed do Ploy workout. But I don't wanna over do it, you think maybe its to much?

                          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                          they get smoked.

                                Do it dude. I did it today on my off day. Well worth it if you ask me. I can feel it being a more beneficial way to get some cardio than running, strength-wise.
