Question: Is a woman who peddles herbalife and does cardio at the gym an "athlete"?
post #38553 of 57265
What to do RHET.. I have been doing IASPR for awhile and am in need of getting into a new routine. Still looking at more strength based routines, but with a bodybuilding split added? Also, I am do IIFYM soon and am going to cut. My stats right now is sitting at 226 lbs bw but fluctuate from that to about 230 lbs and this at 6'2". But I am probably at 15-20% bf but probably 20%+. I still look lean but I want dem facial aesthetics back as I hold alot of fat in my face and midsection.

if she is a professional runner, then yes. Any other answer, then no.

How much weight are you pushing? You consider yourself an intermediate?

 

I did fine on IA SPBR, but I've gotten better gains from increased frequency of the main lifts. Squatting every 4th session (like you do on SPBR) wasn't enough for me. You could always keep running SPBR and do some lighter squats for reps or front squats after DLs on Deadlift day if thats a concern.

 

Otherwise, if you like the routine and you made good progress, there's no reason to change it, especially not if you're going into a cut. Generally, its good to cut with the same program that you built with. When you start a new program, there's always some guesswork on what weights you will use and some tweeking to learn new movements and get adjusted to the changes. This can have you use les weight, which in turn in a calorie deficit could cause muscle and strength loss.

 

I'd just keep doing SPBR if I were you unless you have anything against it. Add another day for some low impact bodybuilding isolation stuff if you want to (say more arms, delts, quads, whatever) if you manage to recover from it and not have the other days suffer as a result. My guess is that you won't be able to do this and that you will actually need to drop the volume on the regular SPBR template, but at least its worth a try.

 

If you want to change because you keep stalling out, change some lifts and manipulate the rep and sets with the same total volume. Usually does the trick.

Hit the scale this morning and I went from 189lbs in late october to 200lbs today and my waist and hip measurements have gone down by 2 inches on average.

Yeah I'd second this, as someone who's doing SPBR currently. I'm planning on keeping this prog until I get up around 1500 maybe or if I start stalling beforehand. It's a pretty good prog, I don't see the need to switch it up too much. People think they are more advanced than they are, and/or feel like they should be switching up progs all the time when they don't need to.

Shoulda pushed out more, wore baggier shorts, tilted your pelvis more and not smiled. Haven't you learned anything from Hydroxycut infomercials? Also, the photo shouldn't be so colorful

A buddy in college won one of these competitions for muscle and fitness. He was already heavy into bodybuilding when he broke his femur playing rugby about a 2 months before the entry date. So he just gorged for 60 days, looked like absolute shit in the before pic, and then came back 6 months later bigger and leaner than before the injury.

This can be easily achieved with the right environment, though. Just stand under some high powered fluorescent lights. Bonus points for doing it outside at night in a shitty looking parking garage.
