The Program

I've started doing this workout at least one day a week for the past couple of weeks. You guys may have heard of it. You use a regular bar and light weight-like 55 or 65lbs. Go outside, and exercise. The sheet I have list several exercises to do:
1. jumping jacks
2. power clean
3. regular curls
4. power clean squat
5. back squat
6. bend over row
7. split squat
8. reverse curls
9. front squats
10. military press
11. sit ups
12. push ups
Now, in between each set, or other set, run a short sprint, like 25 to 50 yard. Do this for 30 minutes to an hour. It completely wears me out. I can hardly talk afterward. Remember, keep yourself hydrated, because, believe me, you will sweat your little heart out.

This form of cross training is very effective and the best part is, it doesn't cost anything and can be done in the privacy of your own backyard. Keep it up and well done.

Sounds good! I wish I had the willpower to do a routine like that regularly. I get bored of exercises so quickly. If my workout doesn't change, I usually end up not doing it!

Each kilo is the equivalent of 8000 calories. A hard work out for a typical male will burn off 600 calories per hour. One kilo requires about 14-16 hours of hard cardio.

It is a depressing thought.
