I think that I read this article 100 times already…I think it’s a great system. However, I see the relationships (as stated in the article) to EDT and simularities with german Body Comp.
So my question is, what are some opinions on doing this superman sets protocol first thing in the morning and cardio in the evening?
Please keep in mind that my goals are fat burning. I am gearing the workout to be on the moderate to high rep scheme…centering upon compund movements of Upper/Lower Body sessions (ie. Pulldowns/Squats for 20 mins.)
My reasoning for this order is:
- To do a high intensity workout like this first thing…would stoke up the old fat burning furnace throughout the day.
- Doing moderate cardio in the evening as a “supplemental calorie burning exercise” .
- My gym (like many of yours, I’m sure) is a zoo in the evening - and setting up a cycle between 2 exercises is nearly impossible vs. doing this at 5am.
My nutrition protocol would reflect my activities:
Meal 1 Post workout shake (following the superman sets workout)
Meal 2 (P+C) most likely Whey and Oatmeal
Meal 3 (P+F) Chicken/Cauliflower/Fish Oil
Meal 4 (P+F) Whey/Flax
Meal 5 (P+F) Fish/Fish Oil/Spinach
Meal 6 Either Just Protein or P+F
I would love to hear some opinions!
