Strongman Event Circuit Training for Fat Loss

Athletes from all different disciplines advocate using high intensity interval training (HIIT) or modified high intensity interval training (MHIIT) as a means of fat loss rather than the low-and-slow cardio that most folks turn to. There are a lot of reasons for this, first and foremost, training with short, intense spurts of energy with regulated periods of rest will involve more than just oxidative means of energy production which is why it is so much more effective for strength athletes than jogging or, dare I say, aerobics. This subject is much more complicated than I have presented it here; however, I won't be getting into any details right now because, well, it's 11:00 at night and frankly I would rather sit here with Leslie and watch cheesy vampire movies than write an in-depth blog about energy systems and their respective utilizations during training. Anyway, I have recently been trying to lose some fat because I had way too much of it and have thus begun implementing strongman events in a circuit as one of my fat loss tools. After having finished this circuit my heart rate was so high that I felt like I was drowning.

I ran this circuit 5 times with 1-2 minutes rest.

  3. Do you know the 2 biggest reasons men and women stop exercising?

    1) Lack of time
    2) Lack of motivation

    Let's tackle "Lack of Time" today with 5 ways you can get your
    workouts done faster. After all, no one should spend more than 50
    minutes in the gym.

    Here are 5 ways to cut time from your workouts.

    a) Supersets

    I use "non-competing" superset. This means, choose two exercises
    for different muscle groups - and preferably completely opposite
    movements. For example, choose a push and a pull. That way, one
    muscle group rests while the other works...and you cut the rest
    time you need between sets.

    b) Choose a better warm-up strategy

    Don't waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use a
    total body circuit of bodyweight exercises as a general warm-up, and
    then move directly into specific warm-up sets for your first two

    c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your

    This saves you time at home (you don't need to change the dumbbell
    weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don't need to fight
    for 2 sets of dumbbells).

    d) Choose Intervals over slow cardio

    The latest research shows more weight loss when people use
    intervals, and intervals take half as long to do.

    e) Limit the use of isolation exercises

    Pick multi-muscle exercises, such as squats, pulls, pushes, and
    rows. If you have time, you can squeeze in some dropsets for arms
    and shoulders if you want. However, if you only have 3 sessions of
    45 minutes per week, isolation exercises must be the first to go.

    In addition, don't spend more than 10 minutes per week on direct ab
    training. It's not efficient and won't give you rock hard abs

    PS - Don't know where to start?

    If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr's nutrition
    guidelines...eating properly will be the biggest factor in your
    early success.

    Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to
    prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

    For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT
    workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto
    the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program
    right through.

    If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

    And then finish off with the TT Fusion Fat Loss program followed by
    the 30-day Maximum Fat Loss program to cap off a full 24 weeks of
    Advanced TT fat loss workouts.
