    Strength and tone question

    I recently moved to my village, in order to help my father with seasonal country side manual work, for olives' picking for olive oil, so I think of staying away from typical cardio (running or jumping rope), as I will be constantly working for about 6-8 hours daily and is pretty taxing (it burns around 1400 kcals)... So I think of focusing on my strength workout for this time, but I have a question. I am between rotating 6 workouts (level IV) (power flow, bounty hunter, black panther, hard mode, combat strength, bodyguard) or begin the STRENGTH PROTOCOL program... Of course they're will be mini sessions of jumping rope before (as warm-up mostly) but I want to know if some of these two structures deliver more results or will be better for fat loss and muscle definition (with proper diet of course...). My main goal is to maintain my endurance level for cardio, gain some agility and do things better anyway...
    Thanks a lot

    I went through something similar recently, when I picked up a construction contract and which was fairly taxing. At the time I was doing 4 different programs , level 2 or level 3 and I found it easier to follow along with those and just choose what I felt like on a daily basis. I also stopped cardio, cardio conditioning typically lasts for 3-4 weeks until you see dropoff in capabilities, so if depending on how long you will be working there, you will not see much drop off. Of course that much work will provide some cardio as well.

      CaptainCanuck I haven't worked at a construction site to tell you how similar they are in taxing the body and burning calories, but to give you an idea, what I do is moving constantly, whipping olives from the tree branches in a chopping motion... Anyway, I found Avatar Upgrade as a cool program, closer to what I was looking for... Can you please explain how the point system works and what are the "double points" in the later stages? Thanks

        I have done some farm work and some construction and they are similar, at least in terms of keeping you busy with activities that can be unexpectedly easy or unexpectedly hard.

        I haven't done avatar upgrade though sorry
