not a bad way to get started

by Michelle212 on Feb 29, 2008

In short, what Cruise suggests is this: 1. Lift and lower weights much more slowly than traditional weight training. 2. Eat 5 or 6 times a day. What I liked about the workouts: It's twice a week, for something like 20-30 minutes each session. Anyone can make time for that. The workouts appear simple and "doable," regardless of fitness level. The slow lifting method is really effective. It really fatigues the muscle, and that seems to get results faster than the prevailing methods, because the intensity ramps up really quickly...but he doesn't advocate such a heavy weight that a person would risk injury. A rock climber I met swore by the slow lifting method-I figure she would know, since she's the one clinging to a rock for long periods of time. It seems to provide the best of both worlds-muscular endurance, and muscular strength, particularly as you are able to lift heavier weights. What I didn't like: I'm fortunate enough to have access to free weights, which he advocates for several of the workouts. It might be somewhat costly for someone who is cash-strapped. What I liked about the eating program: appetizing, healthy recipes. What I didn't like: Whey protein shakes, 2-3 times a day, as meals??? Ugh! expensive, and um, how can I say this politely? not appetizing. Guess he's trying to make up for it with the recipes. :-)
