Thumbs up Re: Prowler WOD suggestions for rowing team

Hey Andrew - I used your WOD suggestion this morning and it worked out well. There were 7 of us and we did this:

Re: Prowler WOD suggestions for rowing team

Thanks Andrew - I like it! I was thinking about something like that but the burpees are an inspired (ie: sadistic) touch. Nice way to break up the erging (since we erg all the time, it's nice to not...

Re: CFF Heavy Duty Prowler review

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Thanks for gathering those number Katherine- interesting to see them all lined up.

It's also interesting to note that many people, including Lance himself, have suggested that one of the main...

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Did you read the rest of the thread? Despite the initial consensus to the contrary, following the program I outlined at the beginning of the thread allowed me to add 70 lbs to my 1rm squat in four...

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Joshua. I appreciate your input, but you're wrong that being lighter does not significantly improve cycling performance. This might be "more" true if you're dealing...

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

(emphasis added)

This (bolded part) is clearly false, as anyone who has ridden a bicycle up a hill would know.

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Nicholas,
"met con workouts" do not necessitate intake of more calories.

And yes, being lighter is more important than being bigger and "stronger" (in the sense of maximal muscular strength) for...

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

Thanks Andrew,
This six week program was intended to be a brief attempt to add some strength while sticking to my overall goal of losing weight, and it definitely succeeded in that regard. For the...
