CROSSFIT SUFFOLK *** Forging Elite Fitness
Skill Development and Workout That You Missed
The below is an excerpt from T-Nation.com interview of Mark Rippetoe. The entire interview can be read by clicking the link within the Cutting Edge Muscle Science article above:
T-Nation: To switch gears, even though you're primarily a strength coach, summer's here and we all get a little 6-pack happy. Do you have any tips about fat loss for recreational lifters or athletes?
Rippetoe: Oh, sure… Zone Diet.
T-Nation: No, seriously.
Rippetoe: Barry Sears' Zone Diet works every time I've seen it tried. I know lots of people in Crossfit that need to gain weight, in my opinion. But I also know lots and lots of people in Crossfit that are carrying 8% bodyfat, and they all got there by doing Crossfit-type training and the Zone Diet.
It's weird how fast it works. Every time I put people on the Zone Diet, their Crossfit performance improves and their bodyfat goes down. If you want to drop a bunch of fat in two months, go straight to Crossfit and the Zone Diet. Say what you want to, but it works better than anything else I've ever seen.
