Velocity Diet Workout


#1

Are you required/suggested to use the workouts the Velocity Diet comes with. Or can you use your own workout during the 28 days?

Suggested, but keep the perimeters of the V-Diet in mind – no traditional “cardio” and focus on weight training with abbreviated rest periods.

Thanks

Is there a log or template for the workouts?

Not sure what you mean. The workouts are in the V-Diet ebook, and we have a forum for logging if you’d like: http://tnation.t-nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_bodybuilding_velocity_logs?pageNo=1&s=forumsNavTop

Hey Chris,

Is there anything I can switch in for shoulder press and push press in the workouts? I have some shoulder issues that have been flaring up when I lift weight overhead and I have been told not to do it for awhile.

Whatever doesn’t bother your issue basically. I had that issue recently and found that seated cable overhead presses with a neutral grip (palms facing each other and kept closer together than normal) did the trick.

I’ve also used what I call a “delt trio” when overhead pressing wasn’t possible. Basically, it’s a tri-set of lateral raises, front plate raises and rear delt raises done without rest. Since only the overhead movement bothered me, this trio hit every head of the delts without putting a bar overhead.
