Does this look ok?
For my LHT days 2x/week, is this a good workout?
Overhead Press 3X12
Pull ups 4X12
Any suggestions or changes? Is this enough to lean out?
Try some deadlifts, push-ups, sprints. You can do 12 reps of pull-ups? Add some weight and hit some low reps! As long as you are progressing, you really can't go too wrong with weight lifting (when sticking with the compound movements.)
I use the assisted pull-up machine
I agree w/jessjane, add some deadlifts, pushups, sprints. Also, 12 reps is on the high side to me. i rather lift heavier and fewer reps/more sets. Leaning out will have more to do w/your diet than anything.
The selection of exercises is really good. Im confused why you would want to do 4 sets though. I do one set. intensely until failure. Once you've done the first set. your remaining 3 are counter productive as your going to be weaker. And therefore almost impossible to make progress. just a thought.
For the sake of accuracy...your workouts aren't what will get you to "lean out," that is all about your diet/nutrition. The workouts will build muscle and help you with that "leaned out" look...but only when the fat covering them up is gone.

That is fine, but not if you are going for intervals. It's okay to stop, catch you breath, then crush it again.. 2 to 3 times total, in a routine like this.

This was the mistake I made on P90x... I was "crushing" myself each and very day... thinking I didn't have to be so good all the time. It wasn't until I read the Primal Blueprint that I realized the wheat-bread subs at subway every day were going to sink me.. no matter how much insane effort I put in each evening with Tony Horton!
