Meltdown Training Tips and Advice


I read the article by Don Alessi on Meltdown training and was intrigued ( http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/meltdown_training )

Im 22, 220lbs and have been overweight most of my life. I started BBB (Big Beyond Belief) about 6 months ago and have seen great gains, now i want to to shed the flab to see the hard work i've been doing.

Currently im doing a 6x a week prog similar to a BBB split doing 3 sets of 8-12, then hitting the cardio.

Im just curious about people doing it and if it works, and if its right for me. Is this ok for a beginner or do i have to have years of conditioning to survive a circuit without brining a puke bucket to the gym. I heard its called the "death circuit" and i need to bring a bucket with me haha but its interesting that you can build muscle with it and lose fat at higher rates than i could do with weights + cardio.
