60-60-20 BJT’s New Plan To Try to Win the Gentleman?
As summer approaches BJT is trying once and for all to win the gentleman, a get together we’ve had since 2012 in which competitors rejoice over the weekend as well as race. But what is 60-60-20?
60-60-20 is a formula BJT developed and started testing just yesterday. It involves waking up and doing 60 calisthenic exercises, like push ups or crunches. This allows your body to get movement into it, according to Joe, allowing you to feel more energized throughout the day. This is noted by many studies conducted by Joe* in which he noted this effect.
The second part of the 60-60-20 formula is 60 minutes of cardio exercise once you get home. This is where the controversy starts …
The Controversy …
BJT and I got in a heated conversation as to what was involved in cardio as I planned to get my 60 by walking into town and back Friday night when at Killington.
BJT’s contention is that walking is not cardio as he contends there, at minimum, need to be small bursts of speed. I would contend that my walk counts as there are bears and it is cold at night, hence a faster than average walk pace.
He says walking is only cardio for out of shape people and that my heart rate would only be 90 bpm or so. I say that even happens when I am riding so the walking would work just fine.
O.k. on to the Final 20
Despite the controversy BJT went into his discussion of the final 20 … meditation about being your better self. As I ate a hot dog, I contemplated this revelation. Perhaps some grass fed butter and coconut oil along with candles would do the trick. Nah, that’s silly, but perhaps some form of meditation is worth while. There would most likely need to be some bee pollen and Spirulina, along with a little Maca root.
Anyways, I will have to try this 60-60-20. I know I can do at least the initial 60, especially if I get a good night sleep. I was beat today, almost falling asleep standing up.
I will try to incorporate this 60-60-20 with grace, tranquility, and ease, along with unfettered enthusiasm for fitness as I move forward.
*BJT has conducted no scientific studies as to the effects of 60-60-20 training, in fact, I think it is just something he made up while on the phone with me …
Anyways, thank you for stopping by and I hope you found what you were looking for.
