    Default Thinking of changing to a different workout routine?

    Lately I have been giving thought to changing to a different workout routine. As alot of you know that I am doing the Convict Conditioning program, more specifically the Good Behavior routine on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I'm following the Couch to 5K running plan which I do also on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also I'm trying and going to add in Super Joints as well ( I have the DVD now just waiting for the book to get here ).

    However my progress has been stalling lately with Convict Conditioning and to be honest I really miss the way I use to be back when I was in HS a few years ago. I really do want to get back to having muscle and lose a few pounds ( by no means am I overweight at all but I'm sure alot of you get what I mean when I wrote that ).

    I was hoping I could get some suggestions or advice about something new to try. I mean where should I start? I personally would think Kettlebell Swings and Snatches might be a good start?

    How experienced are you with kettlebells?

    ok, this may be just a crazy answer (I've had a few glasses a wine), but hoist some IRON, man! ETK is a good start.

    I can understand the lure of CC, but to me, there is no substitute for pumping iron =)

    I agree. From your previous posts you don't have much faith in CC. You have stalled progress after 7-8 weeks. Maybe you should sleep more? Eat better? Train less (try good behaviours would probably be a start), don't know why you went straight into veterano. I get the feeling though that it doesn't matter what program you choose. So why don't you tell us what progress you have made on CC?

    On another note, you wanna lose some fat? Eat better. No program is going to burn fat off you.

    Do what you did in high school.

    If you want to go to kettlebells, don't reinvent the wheel, at least not right away. Do the ETK PM, and then (maybe) ROP. Honestly though, it also sounds like you may be trying to do too much. I think its quite possible if you dropped the running, or at least reduced it, you would get past your CC plateau.

    I didn't say that I have no faith in CC I am just looking around at what else is out there. I look at Veterano and Good Behavior as being the same thing because in both programs each exercise is only being done once a week.

    Maybe your right about eating and sleeping better though. I think maybe I will start over with CC and start from day 1.

    You might be on to something there.

    No but I got the impression from your previous posts about CC since the end of May (a lot).

    You are suffering from information overload. Take a week to think about what you actually want to achieve. When you can answer that question you can then pick and choose a direction. Don't pick a direction before knowing where you want to end up. You will get lost. Which I reckon you are now.

    I second what Jason said about going to the PM and RoP. Great programs!

    You just hit the nail on the head to exactly how I am feeling right now. I'm going to do just that and take the next week to figure out what I really want and I'll let you know what I decide. Thanks
