    There is a lot of "Sir" talk going on here.

    FYI...If you click the OP's name and without even needing to scroll, one can see HER profile and realize that SHE is not a "sir".

    But!! It's a reasonable albeit incorrect assumption if you just see hard abs and "USMC" in the username.

    I really really want to give you a thumbs up but your number 4 is making me cringe.

    Yes...this. ^^^

    What's your reason for not liking #4? My reply to him is that if diet is on point you don't need much cardio. You can add more, but it isn't necessarily helpful. All good programs should include some cardio. I also said that food logging should be accurate, but it isn't always and doing cardio can help make up for inaccuracy (like going out to eat, the dishes can vary up to 500 calories depending on restaurant).

    Jumping back in, so tell me how it is not necessarily helpful.

    Please explain that to me?

    So go by just the rough average of say 100 cals burned per mile.

    Say 10 minute miles (which we could say the average person could pull off)

    Say they go for 40 minutes everyday.

    That would equate to 400 cals extra burned.

    Most people wouldn't come close to burning through their glycogen stores in 45 minutes. Assuming they are not sprinting for 45 minutes. So your precious muscles stay in tact and not used for energy AND you get the added bonus of 400 cals burned.

    Oh, let's not forget all the added cardio bonus' you get to enjoy in the gym because of your cardio runs.

    What is bizarre is your recommendation really REALLY heavy on the protein macro ratio then scared to death of the cardio monster.

    What I find more funny than anything is the fact you have the usmc title in your name and you know damn well you wouldn't have anywhere close to the body you have now without all the fun cardio they made you do.

    Other than that, two thumbs up.

    cardio is not just running 10 minute miles! cardio can be interval training on any machine OR body weight exercises, barbell complexes, swimming, biking. and the OP didn't say anything about it needing to be steady state either.

    oh and OP... fantastic post! :flowerforyou:

    Not a female. A woman. Heck, I'd almost call you a lady but we'd need to go out to dinner and stuff first, really give you the My Fair Lady aptitude battery.

    Haha it's okay. It's easy to assume that someone who is a veteran stayed in great shape. Nope, I got fat and I hate running. I'll blame breaking my pelvis and ankle, but I just really like eating.

    Thumbs up. Good stuff.
  • usmcmpusmcmp Member, Premium Posts: 21,291 Member Member, Premium Posts: 21,291 Member
    All good points. But there is more than one way to skin a cat.

    I do not lift heavy in the gym, I do kettlebell workouts. Involves lots of core work. I don't do any specific abdominal work at all. And I do lots of cardio, because I love it (running) and it helps me increase my calorie debt if I so desire. AND it decreases my appetite.

    You're right, there is more than one way.

    You still activate your muscles and eat at a calorie deficit. Those are the the main keys to success.

    I got caught assuming due to all my military friends who can still run 6 minute miles..drunk...while smoking a pack a cigarettes...and laugh at me while I am trying to keep up.
