Anyone into this? Lifting, Crossfit, fitness etc?

I've been mixing up some different workouts lately, trying to get a good blend of muscle and endurance. Tried some crossfit, some basic powerlifting stuff, body weight only, etc... I made a video about what seemed to work for me.



I am 30 years old mind you, so I am just slightly starting to feel some wear and tear on my joints. I have been on a no Sugar, HFCS or alcohol diet for about 4 months now so that is probably helping quite a bit.

If you have a fail proof, awesome workout post it here. Or just one that you think I should try. I'm down to give anything a shot, provided it isn't an obviously ridiculius routine, or something I know doesn't work.

Man, you have a lot of willpower. I work out every day, but I have a weakness for dessert.

It is really really hard lol. Everyone tells me "1 little bite won't hurt!", but now it's almost more about the will power to keep going, than how much it will really affect me.

My running isn't outstanding yet, so I generally keep it to 5 miles and work on speed for the time being. My goal is the fastest 3 mile possible, but I don't want to drop a ton of body weight either. I might give this a try next week though, problem is all the hills here, I might have to go to the track.

My normal workout is.

2 mile run. I like to change up the location. Woods is my favorite.
10 minutes of Elliptical at it's highest resistance.
45 minutes of lifting (8 exercises 3 sets of 10 reps each)
10 minutes of stretching

I basically do this:
Mon: Pull ups, burpees, wait a bit, 5 mile run
Wed: Clean and Jerk, dips, knee raises on pull up bar, plyo jumps (have to do 2-3 mile run this day as well)
Fri: Deadlift, Bench press, wait a while, run 5 mile

I have been switching the DLs with just bent over rows and shrugs so I don't have to ... negatively affect my running for the leg strength to do high DL weight. It is really the best exercise, but I guess I can't have both. It makes me mad cuz this other guy I know, who I work with can Deadlift a ton and still runs faster than me. Genetics I guess, or steroids.. idk which.

I will sometimes switch those up. Like, this happens a lot, something will happen where I have to miss a day or two, like my constantly rotating work schedule gets in the way, and I end up doing them different days.. but still the same basic rotation. I consider the most important movements, in my opinion, to be clean and jerk, burpees, pulls and running/sprints.

No. Ignore Surfer, it's obviously steroids. Cheaters never win bro!

But seriously, props to you on the willpower. I always do a similar thing during lent (giving up sugars), but I'm always back drinking sodas once Easter rolls in. As for my workout, I have a much milder workout than what has been posted. Basically I'll bike a couple miles, maybe jog two or three, then go light on the weights. Every two/three times a week I'll do a six exercises abdominal workout x2. Up until today I thought I was in pretty awesome shape for a comic book reader, but it seems like the bar has been raised.

I lift for football a lot, summer conditioning started yesterday. I also practice with the Cross Country team when I can, although I don't go to meets. I get my ass kicked at XC practices, those guys are insane.

If it means anything, all I do is Karate.

I haven't worked out since December of 2011, so I am pretty out of shape right now. As of yesterday I had decided to pick up my training and see if I can get in better shape than I am now, because I feel weaker, not as fast as I used to be and my endurance completely sucks right now. So I figured that I get back into my Karate training and see if I can keep it up and not drop it like I did months ago.

My work out consist of...

Warm Ups

150 - 300 Jumping Jacks

90 - 100 Push Ups

100 - 220 Sit Ups

Leg Stretches

Arm Stretches

Punches

Rapid Combination Punches

3 sets of Stretch Kicks - 20 Reps each leg

Karate

Technique Drills- Hand Techniques, Leg Techniques, Jumping Techniques, Combination Hand and Leg Techniques

Kata- 1st Kata to 8th Kata.

OK it's been 4 months without any sugar and I'm starting to really want some damn ice cream. I have Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby in the freezer waiting for me and it is this almost irresistible urge. I got 26 pull ups this morning so it's not like it will really hurt. I know I just crave the sweet taste and it has nothing in it good for me.. but it's soooo hard to resist any longer.

You have a very good exercise regime fella. You can afford the occasional treat.

I think something that you will find amongst all the greats in any field is that they managed to enjoy life as well as stay incredibly dedicated and on top of their shit.
