What LHT do you follow?

    So what LHT program do you follow?

    PBS fitness? Starting strength?, Body by science? Convict conditioning? Or something completely different?

    For the past yr and change I've been doing PB fitness....now I'm transitioning it more toward BbS

    What are you doing for your LHT?
  2. I have been doing a more advanced version of SS, called Texas Method (TM) for 4 wks. I train 3 x week, basically: 1 moderately heavy, 1 very heavy, 1 moderately light. And pull ups. No conditioning, just some walking here and there. I'm a 40 yo female, not a novice and not young, so SS would not be for me.

    OK guys, I *thought* I was up on this stuff, but can you explain LHT, PB, SS...?

    LHT = lift heavy things

    SS = starting Strenght

    BBS = body by science

    CC = convict conditioning

    The purpose of the above is 3 things , get strong and fit & LGN (look good naked)

    Gretchen, I started out doing a lot of Jillian Michaels, but now that my focus is on LHT and not HIIT, I'm loosely following the Starting Strengh-schedule/plans, as well as the PBF stuff.

    I have started kettlebell training recently and love it! I am also going to start training for a half marathon. I figure my actual race will be lots of walking and some sprinting.

    My HT is me. You'd have to put a gun to my head to get me lifting weights again, let alone setting foot in a gym. Been there, done that to excess in my youth, don't want any part of that culture these days. This is my journey, and it doesn't require membership fees, lockers, or lycra.

    And I know that Grok didn't have kettleballs, barbells, or a row of Nautilus machines. :)

    I really like kettlebells and I do bodyweight stuff, too, like planks and regular/reverse pushups.

    I also love certain isometric moves from Bar Method and certain moves from T-Tapp (not a tap dance workout, lol!). T-Tapp is totally dorky, but Teresa Tapp really knows muscle mechanics and her small moves produce results. She's in fantastic shape.

    I like moves that give you the most results in the least amount of time;)

  9. I am looking into kettlebells for a lifting workout. Was a gym rat for years...even had a person trainer for 7 of them. I kinda want to stay away from the gym and maybe just do some things at home. Any suggestions on DVDs or internet programs for how to kettlebell it?

    I've heard a lot about T-Tapp too. Since you mentioned it hazyjane which of her DVDs do you recommend?

  10. I'd be very interested in what JK has to say about Teresa Tapp and her theories and workout. I'm no fitness expert, but having read a lot of the different fitness books and theories over the years, hers makes, by far, the most sense to me, and it seems to be especially excellent for women. I did HIIT for a long time in my 20s and like Croak, I don't want any part of the gym culture or weight-lifting world (which seems so often to lead to the bodybuilding cult). I think bodyweight exercises and LHT are natural, normal and effective, and I think T-Tapp is both effective and therapeutic in many regards, including electrical flow throughout the body.

    Whatever you do. do it outside. So far I have messed with bodyweight programs (onnit), functional movement like movenat or ido portal, kettlebells (pavel tasouline} Yoga, Barefoot hiking, Hill sprints and now Im messing with the X3 bar outside for heavier resistance training. I can throw it in a duffle bag and take it outside anywhere. Id also like to try gymnastic rings and set them up outside.
