    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Had Rushfit for a week now. Ask me anything.

    So, I got a copy of Rushfit from a friend who isn't using it and have been doing the workouts for about a week. So far I really like it. I am far from a couch-potato, but am also almost 40 and not currently at my fighting weight.

    This thread is for people to ask questions about it, and I will answer.

    Having literally not seen anything about it aside from a mention in his Men's Health interview, what exactly does it consist of? I remember on here a while back there was a video someone posted of him talking about not do any weight training...

    How does it compare, if you can compare, to Crossfit and PX90?

    WTF is rushfit? I'd look it up myself but there are better threads to read and this is your QA/FAQ post.

    It consists of 6 circuit style workouts using bodyweight excercises and light (5-25) dumbbells. Each workout has 5 5 minute "rounds" with a 10 minute warmup and about 7 minute cooldown at the front and back. There is Strength and Conditioning, Strength and Endurance, Abs/Core, a "fight" workout, Stretching and Flexibility, and Balance and Agility.

    I have never done P90X. Gotta figure it's about the same thing, only with an "MMA theme". I have Crossfitted, though. Definitely a lot less weight lifting. You only use light dumbells and bodyweight stuff. Also no pull-ups which, in all their variations, I found to be a large part of Crossfit. The Conditioning aspect is better than CF, though, imo. I sweat a lot more. Also there is a lot more working of the abs and "core" in Rushfit than CF.

    It's GSP's (really he just hosts it) strength and conditioning home workout DVD series.

    This concerns me. What exercises do they do for biceps and upper back then? I can't imagine a body weight exercise for the biceps that is NOT a pull-up.

    Lot of bent over and upright rows with the dumbbells. Also some curling motions.
