Looking for What's In-Between Killing Fat and 30-10-30 Metabolic Challenges

Hey all, I recently bought and read Mens Health Killing Fat on audible and the 30-10-30 Metabolic Challenges ebook.

Is there something in the middle for a first time HiT trainings focused on growth?

I have a bit of fat to loose but gains will be primary goal. May do the metabolic challenge later but seems like I should start with something more introductory.

Thank you!

I started with “The new HIT” book by Dr Darden, which was a great introduction to HIT training. Somewhat closer to traditional training (whatever that is). Highly recommended.

OK yeah I do have that one, but it doesn’t cover much of the 30;10;30 stuff. I guess really I can pick any exercises I want apply the 30:10:30 and either eat a bunch and gain or do 1500 cal and lose fat. After some reading of other things here that seems the general approach.

I recommend “The killing fat” approach as an introduction to 30-10-30. You may start by doing 15-10-15 to begin with, and get used to the method.


I agree, imho this is one Dardens best books and training method

Do you want growth or do you want to burn fat? You’re contradicting yourself here. Start with the New HIT and do that for a while with your normal diet. Follow the Doc’s water recommendations and try and get more sleep.
After a while, you can start shortening rest periods and applying 30-10-30 to some of all exercises.
