Bingo....just go do something and focus on eating....you could spend another week debating or lose 3lbs....your choice.

Shiny new workouts are out there....to make money....the basics of heavy lifting and eating right have been around for a long time and don't costs a penny.

Don't chase perfection....no such thing....just go do something and enjoy the journey.

I'll second the: just pick something, and do it. I've done great with CF, great with Super Squats- the rest is diet. If you like Ross, and repect his work, I'd wholeheartedly think about buying Infinite Intensity. Set up at home, do what he has laid out. Dial in you food. Ignore all training advice from anyone but Ross for a few months. The hardest parts are food, and focus. Just decide you'll pick a program and stick to it for a few months. One nice thing with Ross is he's got a coherent method that is pretty cheap on the gear front, as brutally hard as you want it to be, and has a one-stop-shop set up if you choose to use it- there's a tone of folks on his forum using his stuff. In the internet age it's hard to not be continuously moved from program to program to program...I did well with Super Squats because all I did was Squats, Deads, Chins, Dips, and Rows for half a year. I didn't know enough to get bogged down in the minutae.

Default Another Vote For Ross Enamait

I learned about Ross Enamait's site and books from the recommended reading list in the Resources section of the CA site. I wish I had read Infinite Intensity and Never Gymless years ago - they would have saved me years of doing less productive stuff in the gym.

I haven't read TT but I have read a friend's copy of Afterburn. I would recommend Infinite Intensity over Afterburn ... II is cheaper and contains much more substance regarding training over the long haul. I am confident that the work-outs in II will achieve a similar "afterburn via EPOC" as the complexes that Cosgrove prescribes.

Ross Enamait is legit. Is it wrong for me to have more respect for a coach/trainer that actually excels at the very training he/she prescribes?

I dont mean to sound... um... well here goes: you want to train harder, willing to do hours of reading/research/surfing, PAY(gasp!!) for a workout plan, and postpone your progress for weeks/months because it's "easier" than dedicating yourself to what you put in your body for fuel?!

K., what would you say to someone who said, 'I know heavy cleans are the best thing for me, but I don't like to work so hard, so I am going to do hours of 'cardio' instead'?

I used to weigh 316lbs at 40%BF. I'm 212lbs at about 9% right now, and I can tell you from having tried every shortcut, every diet, every training program on the planet that if you just fuel right, damn near anything will work. Fuel right and do high intensity, infinitely varied, functional movement and you will fry.

cheers,

Chef
