The FML Workout
[quote=She-Raw]Hi. Thanks for posting this Herecomestrouble! I lift weights but haven't been doing so as consistently as I like to (I also run, hike, do yoga, and serf sometimes, so weightlifting isn't all I do). I think your plan will help me be more motivated since it's a new way for me, and sometimes changing things up can have great results. Also, it sounds less time consuming than my current weight lifting strategy, so thanks again![/quote] You bet! Variety keeps the body guessing!

The FML Workout
No single workout will work for everyone, nor will a single, unaltered workout work for the same person over their lifetime. This is just one that works for me and my guys. I don't have a degree in exercise physiology or any related field, but I've been working out and lifting weights for over 20 years and I've logged a lot of reps.

The FML Workout
My guys pointed out to me this morning that I made a typo: Friday's Vomitron should be 10-8-6-4-2 and not 10-8-6-2. Also, the 15-12-10 section on that same day is quad-sets, so you go through each exercise at 15 reps, then 12, and so on. We made it all the way through this week and everyone is pretty smoked from it. I plan on making a couple tweaks to the program, but nothing big.

The FML Workout
[quote=eKatherine]Actually, it looks like the kind of workout that young guys would be drawn to, though some of the exercises are not all that effective. It's the kind of workout people who belong to a gym and want to use all the equipment would use.[/quote] Just out of curiosity, which exercise would you identify as not all that effective?

The FML Workout
[quote=eKatherine]So you're a bodybuilder? That workout would totally mess me up. I'm a minimalist. I don't think that more exercise is always better. [/quote] I'm no bodybuilder. I just have a job that requires me to have massive amounts of strength and endurance. The guys in my unit range from 130 lbs to 220 lbs and we use this workout for 2-3 weeks at a time at different times throughout the year. If it looks really crazy, it isn't. (Honestly) You can use whatever weight you see fit and it doesn't have to take too long either (the Tuesday workout took me 30 minutes on the dot.)

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh in every morning. I get up, pee, then stand on the scale in my underwear. Keeps things consistent and any huge swings in weight are caught immediately.
