ZeroMan Workout Series
The ZeroMan workout series is designed for gentlemen relatively new to working out who want to lose weight and have general fitness improvement. This program can work for anyone, so feel free to adjust weight and resistance to fit your needs. For maximum fat loss I recommend five to six small meals a day, including one fatty (good fats) snack an hour before workout (Geoff’s Man Bar would be perfect!) and a protein shake no more than 30 minutes after working out. The rest of the small meals should have a ratio as close as possible to 9g carbs, 7g protein, 2g fat. Good luck!
Day 59: Friday December 2nd, 2011
Warm Up: 20 minutes
Recumbent Resistance Intervals
- 5 minutes at ‘6’ to ‘8’ resistance 75 RPM to 80 RPM
- 8 times: 30 seconds at ‘11’ to ‘13’ resistance 90+ RPM, followed by 1 minute at ‘6’ to ‘8’ resistance 75 RPM to 80 RPM
- 3 minutes at a leisurely pace
Light Stretch: less than 5 minutes
No deep stretching. Just a few reaching exercises, arm swings and circles, trunk rotations, etc. The idea is to move and get warm, especially muscle groups you missed in your warm-up.
Resistance: 15 - 20 minutes
- 3 Turkish Get-ups, L&R with 17.5 lbs.
For Time: (break up the sets however you like)
- 40 Air Squats
- 30 Dumbbell Bench Presses (20 lbs.)
- 20 Cable Lat Pull-Downs (55 lbs.)
- 10 Standing Barbell Military Presses (40 lbs.)
Stretch: 5 - 10 minutes
Comprehensive light stretching, then focus on deep hip external rotators, glutes and IT band (tensor fasciae femoris) with butterfly stretches, feet farther in front butterfly stretches, lying glute stretches, lying piriformis stretches, and lying hip stretches.
Cool Down: 20 minutes
Run / Walk on a treadmill. (8 run, 3 walk, 5 run, 4 walk would be great)
Start adding a fish oil supplement to your first, middle, and last meals of the day for faster healing and healthier joints. To really kick your fat loss up a notch and minimize joint inflammation, avoid bread (at least on workout days).
CINNAMON!! Add a dash of cinnamon to your morning cup of coffee, and another cup at lunch wouldn’t hurt.
Drink at least 8 oz. of water 30 minutes before each meal or snack, and drink fluids with your meal either just before or just after (or both), but not during. Green tea is a great option for delicious hydration, appetite suppression, antioxidants, and a nice energy boost!
Try to base your meal ratios on a total daily protein intake of 95g to 115g (while striving to maintain the 9:7:2 carb:protein:fat ratio at every meal except the pre and post workout snacks.)
