As far as supplements, I probably take more than 99% of the population lol...
I take whey protein (post workout and sometimes during the day), if I need more protein I take casein at night (haven't taken that in a while b/c I get most of my protein from food). I take a daily mens vitamin, fish oil, Green Tea Pills, Glucosamine + MSM, L-Arginine (I love this one, if you've never tried Arginine, look into it), sometimes Glutamine and I just started taking Z Force (ZMA).
Been thinking about the Arginine, I do the fish oil, multi vitamin, whey powder as a supplement to food, just started glutamine today,advil and ben gay most days.
Screw it it cant hurt!!

Mike, I am buying in to the coumpound excercise principle. Makes sense...
Now how many Reps, Sets, of the 4 compoud excercise do you do each time.

I am considering this
Mon, Wed, Fri weight lift using compound movements
Tue, Thur, Sat HIIT on treadmill for say 2 mo and then see where that takes me?

Let me know your thoughts

it varies through out. Today was a heavy day, so it was 4-6 reps for 25 total. So you could do 5 sets of 5, or 6,6,5,4,4. Depending on how it all works out. The program focuses on a bunch of different factors, such as amount of rest time, which also varies. You are supposed to do the reps as fast as possible, with good form, and stop as soon as you start to slow down. So on a heavy day, I could probably do 8-10, but may stop about 6 b/c I know I'm about to slow down.

Your schedule looks good to me. I lift 3 days and do cardio/HIIT 3-4 days.

Ok cool. I read the concept of the workout and will do my own variation based upon the concept as I understand it since I am too cheap to buy the book.
I see that you do a light, med, and heavy day 24-25 reps per excercise at a fast pace with good form.
Easy enough I will give it my all for a couple months and let you know how it works.

Thanks for all of the great advice. I really appreciate it.
