Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I'm fairly overweight and I'm looking for a regime that will get me into shape without excessive dieting.
I have my own home gym that has a treadmill, a bicycle, a standard weight set with a few different options and a bench. I usually do 12-14 minutes of jogging, then move to some incline fast paced walking, then once I'm tired from that I do shoulders, 3 reps of about 11-12 on a weight level that pushes me to the limit. I do a few leg lifts (or whatever they're called, about 3 reps of 10 - I have bad knees hopefully this will strengthen this). After that I do around 70-80 odd ab crunches. Am I doing a workout that will help me to shed some kilos? I have been slightly watching what I've been eating, and will probably be able to do a workout nearly everyday, if not every 2 days. Should I add anything in for fast weight loss? Perhaps do some more weights?
Take it from me bud, I was overweight from the age of 8. No lie. Then by the time I was about 11 or 12 I just started to lose weight- a lot of it. How? Just dieting. I cut the shit out. I never lifted a finger (unless pressing the x button repeatedly on my PS2 counts) and I lost a ton of weight.
I still had some fat around my stomach and well shit, man boobs but by the time I was 15 I started exercising regularly and now I'm a skinny fuck.
