If you do bodyweight squats then make sure your feet are close together when you squat down... this will work the outer thigh more... if you want to work the INNER thigh more then you spread your feet farther apart when you squat.

Try it out and see if that works for ya!
Nice! Thanks, TORap! The jumping exercises in the Insanity workouts seem to do it a bit, too.

anyone heard of complexes? i will be starting this program tomorrow, looking forward to it.

Quote:
This progressive method creates a powerful metabolic effect that's incredible for fat loss, especially when combined with short rest periods. Although short enough to keep an elevated heart rate, these rest periods shouldn't be so short that they decrease performance. Fat loss is further increased with the addition of a strength-endurance movement at the end of the complex.

Most of my fat-loss complexes consist of two heavy movements and three explosive movements. The reason? Explosive movements have a more profound effect on fat loss than slow movements. A complex that has three explosive movements by itself is going to be efficient for fat loss. Add a strength-endurance movement at the end and it's even more effective.

And remember, the faster you can train without having a decrease in performance, the better it is. Explosive work increases insulin sensitivity in the muscle tissue more than any other type of training. If you overemphasize the eccentric action, you decrease insulin sensitivity. In fact, intense eccentric work can decrease glycogen re-synthesis for up to 36 hours and that's a killer!

So, by having mostly explosive movements, you sensitize the muscle cells to insulin, which leads to less storage of fat. This is followed by a powerful increase in catecholamines that results in further energy expenditure and keeps the metabolic rate elevated for a few hours after the workout.

Finally, there's the sheer calorie burn from performing big movements. Your muscle is like an engine; the bigger it is the more gas you burn. Big movements mean big calorie burn.

i'm running into some wrist pain while back squatting. it's only temporary pain for a couple minutes after a set but it's not a good pain (i.e. muscle pain). i know it's because i'm supporting the majority of the weight with my hands versus my rear delts / shoulders. i've tried a bunch of different grips but i can't fix it.

has anyone ever experienced this?

The way I do squats, I could literally let go of the weight and it would balance on my delts and shoulders.
I dont squat big weight though. Usually 275lbs or less.

Its a little over two plates on each side. I see guys squating with 4 plates on each side. I am just two nervous to try such things.
As a rule, if i cant get at least 8 reps with good form, I am going to big.

That's new to me honestly.... never heard of someone suffering from wrist pain while squatting.

Your rear delts and traps should def be bearing 90% of the weight... are you making sure to pinch your shoulder blades together while maintaining a good arch in your back?

Sounds a bit hoky to me. I admit I'm no expert, but after finally gaining mastery of my cutting in the past few months I have to say...eat at a caloric deficit, lift heavy three times a week and eat 1gm protein for each lb of lean body mass and you'll burn fat guarenteed!

I'm eating at an 800 cal deficit so I can still enjoy my weekends eating a bit extra and I'm losing a lb a week consistantly and my lifts are actually going up in some areas.

It's all science...3500 cal = 1lb of fat... you can't put on fat without eating 3500 cal over your maintenance and in order to lose it you have to eat 3500 less.

If by pay attention you mean eat healthy..then no. If by pay close attention you mean count calories then yes

I've been cutting since Jan 4 of this year... down 23lbs, but my lifts have been going up so I've managed to build some muscle in areas I've previously neglected. I have an app on my phone that I input my food...really simple. I eat 2200 cals a day with a maintenance level of 3000.

I eat whatever I want for the most part. Pizza, breaded chicken, kraft dinner...beer The only things i've restricted really is ice cream..I usually eat a lot of DQ in the summer but it's so high in cals that I've been cutting that out. Granted once you get down under 12% body fat, you would have to start to eat cleaner..i.e. healthier but i've still got a bit to go before I hit that.

ps..I'm not advocating eating only junk food either. I'm trying to get accross that to lose weight you dont' have to give up food you like Those people that have been saying for years that it's just portion control are largely right. Find your maintenance level, eat less than it and if you want to preserve your muscle and only burn fat...eat protein and lift as heavy as you can.

anyone hear of the fitness institute? Gonna go check it out tomorrow, gym by victoria park/sheppard. Need some structure in my workouts and I only have a couple dumbbells so joining a gym for the summer makes sense.

anyone ever been a member?

I eat what I want. But then again, i am not cut to peices either.
If you want abs they are made in the kitchen, not the gym.

BINGO. ^^

There ARE people that I know who are absolutely militant about what they eat.... but it's because they're dieting down so that they can compete in BB competitions.

As an "average person" you can certainly still enjoy your favourite foods... just in moderation. And you will have to make SOME changes to your diet if you really want good results... you can't get all your calories from McDonalds. There are some people who can eat like crap, not work out at all, and still have abs (I did when I was in Univ) but eventually that's going to catch up to you as you age.
