    Default losing focus

    So Im starting to lose focus with what im doing for my KB workouts.

    For the past 6 months ive been following a modified form of the Program minimum. I added a few pull ups a few C&P but just to keep the groove. And Im keeping the rest between the grinds pretty lengthy. As far as the balistics go Im all over the place. sometimes Ill do a swing workout from Tracy Reifkinds book or blog, or like tonight I did a 900 rep swing ladder.
    Im needing a change. I know the "logical" step would be to go on to the ROP. The only reservation I have with the ROP is the C&P volume. I want to lose body fat and weight. The problem is, is that I put on mass like crazy like a cosmic singularity.
    So Im needing guidance as to what would the next step. my goals are fat loss and endurance, Strength is nice but not as important as strength endurance.
    Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    what sort of diet do you follow? (i refer to diet not in the "going on a diet sense" but as what you eat)

    I'm actually on weight watchers. I'm having success with it. It works well enough. I'm not stalling in my long term weight loss goal. It's just slowing down. And its shifted to an improvement in body composition.

    I think I'm just wondering what programs are strength endurance focused.

    Do you want to lose FAT or do you want to lose WEIGHT? ROP will build some mass but it will also make most people's jeans fit better. I think it's actually pretty good as a fat burning program.

    If you don't want to do it, perhaps try any of the fat loss programs, such as KB Burn. There's also The Extreme KB Cardio Workout. Or perhaps dig into Pat Flynn's complexes.

    Good luck.

    IMHO, if your goal is body recomposition, that's it - focus on that. I don't think it makes sense to worry about the difference between strength, strength endurance, and endurance for the simple reason that you don't know which one is going to work best in moving your towards your goal of fat and weight loss.

    IMHO, endurance is overrated by most people most of the time. Get strong, and keep something simple in your program to help with body composition - swings will do just fine but I think 900 of them may be a bit much. 900 swings would just make me hungry and would also necessitate a light weight.

    I cannot stress enough how important it is to find what works for _you_. My own experience is that strength trumps all other physical attributes, period, even when it comes to weight loss, and I'd much rather do a short, intense strength program followed by a moderate amount of swings than I would swing for 900 reps - but that's me, and you have to find what works for you. Be clear that what you'd like to do may not be what best moves you forward in body recomposition and you can't always have it both ways.

    My vote for you would be 2-3 times per week of pure strength training, something along the lines of Power To The People! or one of Marty Gallagher's routines, and 2-3 times per week doing a moderate strength/endurance program, e.g., something on the order of 100-200 total swings or snatches per workout with a heavy enough weight that you couldn't really do more than that. Or train strength 3x/week and finish each workout with swings.

    Just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

    I am into week 7 of EDT. I really like the results from a "fat burning" perspective. Edt does the job with body recomp - but diet will allways trump any program for fat loss. Sounds like you just need a change for a few weeks - so cycling another program with PM may be the way to go..Dennis

    Your right, a strength cycle will probably do me a world of good.
    Thank you,
