How effective is Shovelglove, and will it help me in what I'm trying to accomplish?
I'm considering adding Shovelglove
to my workout routine, but I have a few questions. I'm asking here because everything I've read at the Shovelglove site is so completely positive that I'm coming here in case there is another perspective on this workout.
Background: I'm 37 and an ove-lacto vegetarian. After a few years of the completely sedentary/pie-based/dietary anarchy workout system, I'm getting back into shape. I bought a mountain bike last week which I love to ride. Right now, I'm going 30-45 minutes a day each morning. I'm also using the No-S Diet
I'm what you could call "skinny-fat." I'm 6' and around 187. I'm the guy about whom everyone says, "You're do lucky to be so thin," but there also seeing me with my shirt on. My arms and legs are skinny, but my gut/torso have gotten flabby and jiggly.
My goal is to look and feel better. We have a baby coming in early autumn, and I want to look better, feel better, and (most importantly) have more energy when the baby comes.
What I love about the idea of using Shovelglove is the simplicity of it. It's what I used to love about running. There is nothing to futz with; you can just get dressed and do it. Compared to using a weight set, there is no changing plates or anything like that. It seems like a nice, compact, easy to learn workout. However, it's simplicity makes me wonder about its effectiveness.
Thanks in advance for your help.
