MetCon + OLAD for Fat Loss?
If I'm looking to shed fat, are MetCon workouts the best way to go? I was thinking of doing something similar to what Steve had mentioned in another thread - maybe like One Lift a Day followed up with some body weight/metcon work. (which sounds sort of like Cosgrove's deal, but I don't know since I haven't read the book/PDF)

And, as a follow up, would a 5 days on, 2 off of that be too taxing?
(especially considering that 1-2x a week it would take place in mid-fast)

There's really no reason why it wouldn't work. The primary driver behind fat loss is always going to be the diet.

sweet, thanks Steve.

One thing I forgot to post earlier: Does anyone know of a resource (anyone on xfit, other sites) where I might find a list of metcon workouts/ workout ideas?

Ross Enamait's "Rosstraining.com" and his message board.

Scrapper's trainforstrength.com


A lot of the XF affiliates publish their very own WOD too. You can always check that out too.

thanks again Steve.

Sounds good to go. Keep us posted on your progress!

What's your take on Staley's EDT routine for fat loss? (I know Mike Mahler preaches it with KBs)....taking 2 compound exercises...say a deadlift and push press, weights are at a 10Rmax, and SS sets of 5 going back and forth for a set time...like 15-20min. I imagine the GH response for fat loss would be through the roof.

Ah, yeah, the gymjones.com site has lots of stuff too.

We forgot to mention that the OLAD is the Intellectual Property of Daniel John...who stole it from others fair and square.

Honestly, if you went with a "Green Face" Diet (Protein and Veggies) and took the OLAD seriously...it would work very well. Cosgrove would maybe recommend adding two to three cardios a week...intense intervals like Tabatas...so you would have to figure this out somehow, too...
