    Hashing out my training plan

    Back in April of this year, I hit 266lbs. I limited my caloric intake in May/June then 5 weeks ago I made a commitment of getting on a stationary bike 1hr x 5 days a week + a pushup regimen x 3 days a week + a weekend hike. The result was dropping a pant size and weighing at 242lbs today. I still got a ways to go (my goal is 210).
    However, I'm getting bored of riding the bike and watching TV, an hour every day throws a wrench in my already busy schedule with grad school and internship, and I just felt like it was time to upgrade to a more well-rounded regimen. I ran across The Gauntlet kettlebell program and I've committed to doing that for the next 30 days + stationary bike 30min x 3 days a week + a weekend hike. I'm considering returning to Brazilian jiujitsu twice a week, but I think I may try to get through this kb program first.
    After I finish this program I'd like to figure out a 4 day a week regimen like I used to do when I was more active years ago, but I'm taking it one day at a time and I'll reassess in 4 weeks.
    My question is if this is a sound plan? Am I rushing or overcomplicating things?

    Any plan that works and likes is a good plan
    You have to do a little bit of experimentation to find what works really well and there is no problem with changing.
    Some of us are very comfortable with Darebee's 30 day programs, follow those and don't have to think about anything and maybe add a challenge or two.
    Others always use the 30 day programs but do not do them every day but every other day.
    For example, I follow a 30-day program as a basis and then I do a part of the training based on what I want to do
    The advantage of the programs is that they are already good, well-structured workouts but with a little experience you can make your own tailor-made training program.

      There are also the training plans which you can follow, which are less structured but also designed to keep you on track.
