I will be starting my program tomorrow and wondered if there were strong opinons on two things:
1. is it ok to add a 20 min. kettle bell routine in addition to the described plan on cardio days?
2. Am I correct in understanding that on weight training days you will really only do one main exercise per muscle group end that with a "12 rep super set" of a second exercise? If so, is there anything wrong with pushing past the 12 reps or would the opinion be that more weight should have been used instead?
You could work in kettle exercises as your superset, something to think about. If you would like to do it after your HIIT, you need to keep it at low/ moderate intensity and I would only do about 10 minutes. You could work in an extra 40 minute cardio day low/ mod intensity with your kettle belle routine on your normal free day. Here is my reference, hope it helps ;) hussmanfitness.org/.../TPBodyforLife.html

Oh I forgot to answer part two, I normally go past 12 if I can, but then adjust for my next workout ;)
