Going back to a TKD. Started with 1/2 tbsp of Karo before the workout. Crazy the pumps I forgot about.



i am not gonna lie, as much as i love the steak and eggs diet, i miss the pumps big time and I hate how i hit a wall at a certain point where the rest of the session is a struggle.

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
I'm starting week 4 Aesthetics base. I can see the results in my arms and chest already. My weights are going up each week. I can't do a chin up yet, but it's coming soon. I just need to keep losing weight and gaining strength.

Any suggestions for more core work? That's where all of my fat is located. I would like to help the weight loss process. Also, I play golf, so stronger core = faster swing speeds.

Yes. Push-ups throughout the day. Ring rows everyday.

ok keep doing the pushups. for abs, i want you to start with 5 planks per day, as long as possible each time. Stay strict on the body language. done on elbows. do this on workout days.

second thing i want you to do on non workout days. Is start practicing hollow body holds and arch body holds in the morning/at night pretty much whenever and however you can. Just put in a bunch of honest work on these.

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
Are the Greyskull conditioning challenges substitute for HIIT? If not, please help me formulate a HIIT plan to help me shed these last few pounds while still adding muscle.

I’ve done the 5 pushups, 5 hanging leg raise challenge and 25 gladiator-maker push-up challenges thus far.

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
yes absolutely they are. The 13 down is a great one to complete and the 100m repeat along with sandbag burpees.

as for as fat loss, are you performing the fasted walks? if not start.

how many days a week are you doing the conditioning?

Are you doing the burpee challenge?

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
I’ve been walking 40-45 minutes 3-4 times weekly and I’m starting to get tired of doing that much walking. I wanna do other stuff after work

I am not doing the burpee conditioning challenge because it shakes my house too much (condo), and I don’t want to be a dick neighbor.

Past few weeks it’s been:
Monday - walk 40 mins
Tuesday - walk 40 mins
Wednesday - Run 1 mile for pace and do a conditioning challenge and also walk 40 mins if I’m feeling froggy
Thursday - rest
Friday and/or Saturday - bike 5 miles for pace and walk 40 mins

I wanna do less time but ramp up the intensity. Is that possible?

Tuesday: conditioning challenge
Wednesday: run 1 mile for pace and conditioning challenge
Thursday: rest
Friday: rest
Saturday: bike 5 miles for pace

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
Yea stop doing all that shite. Do this

Day 1- lift/15 min Conditioning from book
Day 3- lift/15 min Conditioning from book
Day 5- lift/15 min Conditioning from book
Day 6- 10-15 min Conditioning


Pick something from the book and work towards beating your time. Pick one for each day, beat the clock.

On off nights at the condo, do 10-20 min of
30s air squats amrap
30s hollow body hold

The above is optional. Other then that, be patient and strive for improvement.

I’ve been using them for 25 weeks now. Makes a huge difference. I’ve been doing DB OHP lately and the 5lbs increase is too much compared to 2.5lbs.

order the plate mates for DB's. Or keep pushing the reps at the same weight until you get to 12 reps on the AMRAP set, then go up.

GSLP 3rd Ed p 76-: HIIT, p. 79- LISS, p. 86 Burpee Challenge

There are also a couple other standalone Greyskull books dealing conditioning, with specific workouts: The Modern Viking Conditioning books, challenges book and Conditioning system books

Have you ever tried RPT on some big lifts to break out of mini plateau's as it associates with Greyskulls?

Not to dismiss the 10-20% resets which are very smart just trying to open up to different thoughts.

re: The Greyskull Methods- A Primer
Absolutely, but rpt is usually what we move to for general strength and fitness after the lp is over. Try and milk the lp for as long as possible.
