    This is fantastic Rusty! Some years ago I used to do weight training along with yoga and was really fascinated with how lean my body looked so knowing that they’re incorporating a type of yoga in this sounds fun.This “modular” system sounds like it will be just perfect. Please keep us all updated on how it progresses. I’ll grab the sample right away.Thank you for sharing! Keep it up buddy! :)

    Scott Sonnon’s CST 4×7 protocol usually follows a template like this if you wanted to incorporate it in your training regardless of what modality you use

    “No” Intensity- Joint Mobility/Intu-flow (a free version of beginner version is on Youtube) Mostly rest and very light exertion (Rate of Perceived Exertion) RPE 1-2

    “Low” Intensity- Compensations (Prasara Yoga or any kind of yoga, Mobility, or some sort of active stretching) RPE- 3-4

    “Mod”Intensity- Strength training (Weights, Clubbells, Kettlebells, bodyweight etc) or lighter version of whatever you do on High day at a moderate heart rate. Good day to practice skills/movements RPE 5-7

    “High” Intensity- Metabolic Conditioning (Tabata, Tacfit , Crossfit, Sprinting Interval Training, or some sort of sport) High heart rate or could be strength training with higher reps or weight RPE 8-10 (All out with good technique…but don’t puke!)

    Yes, with bodyweight exercises one can train seven days a week just changing the intensity. There’s no problem.

    Anyway, i think that placing the low/medium/etc intensity days as consecutive is more of a personal choice. Perhaps you prefer to follow a lower body/ upper body routine or take two hard consecutive days or whatever you like ….

    The philosphy would be: do as much as you can without overtraining.

    Nice post!

    Riley,

    Did you try to fast before the workouts, just like Rusty is explaining in one his absblueprint.com videos? I am planning on implementing that but I heard it gives some true results.

    Also try that protein shake each morning within 30 minutes of waking up. I just started doing that this week so I’m still yet to see the results from that.

    Also cardio is VERY important. You need to do after each and every workout. I workout 4 times a week @ the gym and then I also run outside on Sundays in the morning.

    Another factor is to workout in the morning. This is the best time to burn off the fat quicker as you will be working out on a calorie deficit right off the bat.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Bob

    Wow, what an awesome post. I’ve been working out and involved in health, fitness and nutrition for the last 25 years. In the last 8 years, I’ve returned to my roots – pushing myself and other I train with into more “non-standard”, functional workouts.

    I’m going to get a group of us together to try this. I’m particularly excited to put our spin on the low/no intensity days. A lowered intensity Muay thai sparring session sounds pretty cool!

    I think body weight training has always gotten the back burner, but actually some Kung fu masters I’ve studied under in China do nothing but bodyweight and their level of performance and strength is quite surprising!

    Rusty, I just finished listening to your interview with Craig Ballantyne. Decided to come over & check your blog out and when I saw your picture of Malta I knew where it was. My husband & I visited Malta and toured the harbor around Malta on one of those boats. We loved Malta and would like to go back some time.
    I am not into body building but I think you have a great blog. It looks very nice, is very inviting and is easy to read.

    I’m sorry, not to sound skeptical, but exactly where do you pull your research and evidence from your articles, besides personal experience? I like to cast a broad net to gather up fitness information and then filter out the bad advice, and I have some views conflicting to yours, only theirs has multiple research studies quoted that I can follow up on, and you do not- primarily on the methods of eating. I’m trying to lower my body fat percentage from twelve to about ten so I can better see my abs, and I’m on P90X; I don’t want to waste ninety days of effort by not eating correctly.
