War Room Strategies Workout Setup Question

Hi CT,

I hope you can answer something for me regarding your Thibarmy article entitled DESTROYING FAT – WAR ROOM STRATEGIES TO MAXIMIZE FAT LOSS.

I appreciate the detailed explanation of the set up, and I am clear on how to put together each day’s workout. The schedule (day choices my own) is set up like this, according the article:

Saturday: Upper body strength + sprints
Sunday: Lactate-inducing work + SS cardio
Monday: off
Tuesday: Lower body strength
Wednesday: off
Thursday: Lactate-inducing work + SS cardio
Friday: off

Would it be problematic to move the SS cardio (which would be 25 min on Airdyne for me) to two of the “off days”? So it would look like this:

Saturday: Upper body strength + sprints
Sunday: Lactate-inducing work
Monday: SS cardio
Tuesday: Lower body strength
Wednesday: SS cardio
Thursday: Lactate-inducing work
Friday: off

Thanks for any feedback.

Don’t you hate it when people ask questions that are answered in the article? I apologize for doing just that. For anyone else who read the question, the explanation from the article is:

Aerobic work by itself is pretty ineffective, but doing it for a relatively short period of time (20-30 minutes) at the end of the lactate-inducing sessions can enhance the efficacy of that day: the LIS drastically increases fatty-acids mobilization because of the increase in growth hormone.
