Reading: “The Interval Training Workout: Build Muscle and Burn Fat with Anaerobic Exercise”

Our post wod discussion centered on why anaerobic exercise is far superior to aerobic (aka: long slow distance) exercise for losing weight and building muscle. The above book has been met with some criticism from the lsd community. However it really explains well the superior benefits to interval style training. Read the first chapter on Amazon. Now, mix in functional exercises, lots of variety, and intensity and you have CrossFit.
