An earlier poster brought up a Berardi article about G-flux, which got me reading a bit more around JB. I found an article titled ‘training the anaerobic system’.
I’ve been trying to bulk on some muscle for about 6 months now, but have always wished I could incorporate a bit of cardio in there but still get bigger. The article in question below lays out a weekly setup like so:
Day 1: Upper body (push) weights session.
Day 2: Rowing HIIT cardio.
Day 3: Lower body weights session.
Day 4: Cycling HIIT cardio.
Day 5: Upper body (pull) weights session.
Day 6: Running/sprints HIIT cardio.
Day 7: REST DAY
JB states that he uses this for conditioning for his off-season athletes, and suggests that you’ll work towards the kind of physique of a sprinter or high intensity athlete with this weekly setup, i.e. big, lean and muscular… would you guys support this? I’m about 180 lbs, 12% BF and looking to get bigger, stronger and leaner, but I’m worried this might burn me away to the stick-thin physique of a marathon runner?
Any feedback would be hugely appreciated!
