lifting routines

Does anyone know of a good online source of lifting routines? I hit the WOD religiously, but I'm looking for a four day/week workout in the afternoons to last approx 30min. I usually hit bodybuilding.com, but is there a better source out there somewhere?

Re: lifting routines

I suppose it depends on the method you're looking for I mean we both know TONS of sites offer routines. Do you have a certain method in mind?

Re: lifting routines

Something to tone/cut; not interested at this point in life to gain mass or bulk up. Looking for full body routine w/high reps, med-low weight.

He said "tone"

Seriously, "cutting" is a function of diet, as is mass building. All resistance exercises are mass builders to some degree if extra food is there. All resistance exercises are "toning" exercises if you eat less. Exercise and eat less if you want to "tone/cut". High reps and low weight do not cut any more or less than heavy weight and low reps.

Albert,

Have you heard of Crossfit? I hear it's pretty good. You should check out their site www.crossfit.com (WFS). It would be perfect for you.

If you want something else besides the crossfit WOD's, T muscle aka T nation has some decent articles and programs. I know it's a dirty word over here. The 5-3-1 program is solid, and a number of their articles are well written and come from some pretty reputable strength coaches. Just avoid the forums.
Not to sell another website on here, but it's a good source.

German body comp, Charles Poliquin

Exactly what you describe. Google it. You have to diet with it, around 2000-2500 calories a day, with 100+ grams of protein so it's not starvation.

Another option is Pavel Tsatsouline's Russian Kettlebell Challenge. High rep K-bell workouts that will work the whole body, including parts you didn't nkow existed.

Funny, I was just thinking last night how the net effect of CF for me (over, crap, 13 weeks?) is really fat loss. I gained some muscle early on, but like I said NET effect is losing lots of fat. Almost down a third belt loop since I started and my diet's been kinda slack lately . . . still losing fat.

Re: lifting routines

Albert,

How about the strength work-outs over on CF Football? Or take a look at Anthony Bainbridge's log on the workout logs. He's been doing a Max Effort Black Box regimen for quite some time. You could also look at the OPT blog or Wichita programming, both of which have added strength/lifting work.

There's this program called CFSB, too...
