    I've been taking a week off working out to rest up for the next month. When August hits this Sunday, I'm going to start on a new intense workout program for the period of one month.

    I'm going to be doing weights for an hour in the morning, boxing for another hour in the afternoon, and then running 4 miles at a consistent pace at night. I'll be taking creatine, glutamine, and protein to recover and I'm only doing it for a month. I'll be doing it about 5 days a week. After August, I'm going to go back to my regular workouts of one hour a day.

    Do you guys think it's going to be effective doing it for a month?

    Sounds good.
    anything is better than nothing, my friend, see the summer as your off season, work more on strength and conditioning rather than boxing if you want to as well.

    look into taking zinc, magnesium pills

    Zinc and magnesium? I've never heard of that, what's that for? I'll also be taking some fish oil by the way.

    zinc regulates your hormones and with magnesium they help you sleep better and recover better throughout.

    Another thing is personal training camps are very difficult and I know this cause I do them occasionally because noboddys around and its sometimes difficult to stay motivated its really easy to say ok well I dont feel like lifting this morning ill do it tomorrow or ehh my stomach hurts I just run 2 miles instead of 4.

    For sure im just going thru the images in my head of my at my home doing ab work but settling for about 70 percent of what I planned on doing. Then im in the gym and others are around so im motivated to do my best and I usually go past what I planned to do.

    thats the problem with me ...i'll do a set thing one day ..nail all parts ...the next it isnt so hard so i over do it and do extra...then the 3rd day i'm like oh **** i twisted this or that .. and end up slacking off ...

    it's very difficult to stay the course by yourself

    Lifting weights for an hour seems like a lot.

    He probablly stretches it out of course and has his long rest periods. Alot of people will rest for like 5 minutes inbetween sets which is boring to me I cant do. Even when I lift heavyweight I rest no more then 90 secounds to 2 minutes but low weights high reps I rest about 30 secounds at most. Some guys can lift for an hour former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin has a very intense circuit training exercise you can view on youtube. He hits 10 body parts for 10 reps and does 10 sets of this with no rest exept for his job to the machines it last him about in hour.
