When I was in my twenties, just after leaving the Army, I had the time and energy to spend an hour and a half in the gym, 5 or 6 days per week. But nowadays, as a full-time parent and employee, I have to grab my workouts when I can. Last Christmas, I purchased the P90X program for my teenage son. He was starting to get into fitness and I figured that it would be a good way to spend some quality time together and get back into shape myself. I had been practicing my own routine off and on over the years so I was in good enough shape to give it a go. However, I had to take a break after about 2 weeks as I was feeling worn out and housework was piling up. My son continues to follow the program religiously, and has seen some decent results, but I needed to find something that would better fit into my busy schedule. As luck would have it, after scouring the Internet for a more appropriate alternative, I chanced upon the Old School New Body routine.
What I like about the F4X protocol is its efficiency. I can get a F4X LEAN workout knocked out in under 30 minutes, 3 times per week, and know that I’ve hit all the major muscle groups but without getting overwhelmed. I know that I’m not getting cheated because I can feel the soreness in my muscles for days after the workout, yet I don’t feel exhausted. I’ve been able to maintain my routine for months now and am very pleased with the results. What’s more, I’m still left with plenty of room for future growth. While I may never have the inclination to try the advanced BUILD workout, I can see myself graduating up to the SHAPE routine someday when time permits. And as someone who has periodically injured my shoulder practicing more intense routines, I can appreciate the low joint impact.
I almost didn’t try the Old School New Body program as I was looking specifically for a fat burning workout, which I had always associated with intense cardio. I wasn’t looking to bulk up like a bodybuilder either and, having injured my shoulder a few times in the past, wanted to steer clear of anything that smacked of heavy lifting. But after reading up on the science behind the F4X protocol, I was surprised to learn how much more efficient weight training is at burning fat compared to cardio. While you may burn a couple hundred calories during cardio, your metabolism is actually stoked for days after working out with weights – even at rest – as your body works to rebuild the muscles that were just torn down. In addition, the High Density Training method employed by Old School New Body maximizes the fat burning process during your workout.
So if you are a busy parent and / or professional, are just starting out or have suffered previous injuries by overtraining, and are looking for a way to build lean muscle and lose fat efficiently and with low joint stress, at any age, I would highly recommend giving Old School New Body a try.
