Got a jump rope today that has like a little weight on it...found a good price on a pull up bar ($23 at Walmart...nice, no? XD) and I'll buy it with the money I'll get on my birthday (5 days from now), I'm so following this workout! <3

Thank you for this workout! I really hope it will help me slim down. I started it today and I couldn't do more than two supersets without feeling weak. ^^; but I'll try to stick to it!

I have a question.

Is there such thing as "best time" to work out?
I work full-time 5 days a week, and I don't get off work until 4:30-5PM. I heard from my bf that it's not really effective to do work out unless it's morning, even before you eat anything.
Is this true??
I'm afraid I start working out but it does nothing...

This more or less what I was going to ask in addition to my other question. Does it matter if you don't exercise at the same time everyday?

The best time is earlier in the day for losing weight. this is because your body starts off the day with you burning calories. when you are doing this the body is not sure how the rest you you day is going to go so your metabolism kicks into overdrive getting all the food you eat to better use by giving your body extra energy rather than storing it as fat.

I suggest trying to set a specific time to get you in a better routine and also to clear your schedule for it. otherwise you dont have to.

Question:

My health instructor says that in order to get the most efficient results, you must do 3 sets of however many reps you're doing.

Did you make it one because it's a beginner's guide?

the idea is you are actually doing four long super sets. each a different exercise with a short break in between each super set.

Your instructor seems poorly educated on the subject matter. "Most efficient results" are going to depend greatly on your goal-- gaining size, getting stronger, or overall fat less. On top of that, it's best to vary up your set/rep scheme every now and then so that you don't get stagnant in your workout.

Quick question. [Might not actually be quick. ><]

I've decided to try and get in shape for a cosplay (Priscilla from Claymore, and yes, that means a bodysuit), but after high school I haven't had any exercise, so I'm really weak. Dx I tried to do a sit-up the other day and I couldn't get off the ground, and I tried a pushup and only the top-half of me went up. I was wondering, do you know what I can do to strengthen my back and arms so I can begin to do this workout? xD Thanks. <3

I'm going to start this soon, thank you very much for the guide and everything.
But one quick thing, the video for Dips doesn't work, I've found some other places but I don't know where I can do it without a special piece of equipment, which most of your stuff (besides the pull-ups, obviously) is.

Thanks.

Your link for the dips is broken.

I'll be attempting to do this starting tomorrow since I have been warming up to it for the last week (I am WAY out of shape, even this is going to be hard). I can do the 50 squats, but it just about kills me when I do it as two sets of 25 (I've been training for them by doing weighted squats instead).

EDIT: Well, I forgot to do them until about an hour ago an it's past midnight. I downloaded the videos though and I will TRY to do it tomorrow. (My excuse is that today was a rest day, but I still did 300 jump ropes, in sets throughout the day)

So I plan to try this out...even gonna buy all the recommended stuff and I decided to try to do the modified versions of these, caus I've never been able to do a push up in my life. The modified one seemed easy enough last night, but I'm already sore today...LOL!
So pathetic. LOL
But my self discipline is crazy this year, so I'm gonna stick with it. Can't imagine how I'm gonna feel after I do the full set. xD

Kasinator... I would like to point out how wonderful your advice is. The second thing I love is the name of this routine! lol

When I first started working real hard to get into shape I had just stopped playing MMO's and when people would try to get me to come back and play I told them that I was "leveling up" me instead of my character. Sometimes corny little sayings or simple motivational ideas/outlooks can make a difference. Anyway thanks for your advice!
