After almost a year of being kept out of the gym due to Post Concussion Syndrome, I’m wanting to head back into the game. I came across Chad Waterbury’s Total-Body Training program, and decided to do it. Only a few questions:
I noticed no direct core work in the program. Should I add my own core work to it, or can I rest assured that my core will be brought up to scratch due to all the other stuff I’ll be doing?
It says to choose four compound exercises and two isolation exercises. Would five compound and one isolation be ok?
Point four in the explanation says to constantly rotate exercises, constantly changing which order you place the different body parts in in your workout. Should that change for each workout, or each week, or what?
Lastly, I was also originally planning on doing HIIT (squat thrusters combined with stationary bike) to reduce my levels of fat. Basically, my goal is to increase muscle and lose fat, preferably all at once. Oh and of course to gain functional strength and increase cardiovascular capacity. Would doing HIIT twice a week on my ‘rest’ days from the Total-Body program work?
I think that’s all my questions for now, thanks in advance for any feedback.
