Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

How intense is this Spartacus workout? I'm guessing it's rigorous since it's named after a former Roman slave. I'll look up the exercises, see what I find. Might be just the ticket.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Well you are working 10 minutes flat out, and you have to do it 3 times. So the session would be around 30 minutes of solid work (breaks included). I have yet to do it but I'm guessing its super hard, but I like a challenge. Not forgetting how heavy the weights are. If you like a challenge, and have time to do this workout I would recommend it. Some exercises require no equipment at all and its all about pushing yourself for 1 minute/60 reps.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

All depends how weak your are? Can you bench the 40kg easily or is it an absolute struggle. Also, you have a dumbbell or just a barbell? I have a few exercises you could try out but that means eating right too. Can't just work out and then to down pub and has 5 pints and a kebab.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

No I am actually pathetically weak, so its a struggle. I've got the determination to get this right though, so I want to eat right too. Barbell and dumbbell.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I presume it's top half only? No one cares about legs if you just want to look good. If your pathetically weak I'm suggesting 6 meals a day is pretty key.

Take a read at this too,http://www.ironmagazine.com/article68.html it should help a little. I could give you a little routine to do but not sure how it well it would work because I know nothing about you.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Take up BJJ it smashes your core to bits lol!

I do that and football (soccer) for my running twice a week. I can't just run it has to have a purpose or else it gets boring.

Also when I worked in my local gym cycling and Swimming toned me up when on a low/little to nothing carb diet.

*edit*

sugars are important for this though otherwise your muscles will eat themselves lol. With the latic acid I presume, it's called metabolic or something.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I took the Spartacus challenge... Damn near killed myself. Workout is tough. I couldn't keep up with it and I did less, but I will do it every two days and see where it takes me. Always up for trying a new workout.

Haha. I'm starting it next week. They do say it's key to hit 60 reps in a minute but for your first time, you can't really complain. Some people refuse to do it at home though because they think you need hexagon dumbbells so you don't die. I;m doing this for 4 weeks before I hit holiday, as soon as I come back. Burn the alcohol from my system for another 2 weeks with this workout and then slowly implement it into a heavy weight training programme.

I don't mind swimming to keep fit but I knew a mate who did it as a normal sport, 5 or 7 days a week (cant remember) day and night. It's just constant swimming lengths over and over again, I couldn't think of a more boring training routine, so tedious and boring. It develops though (as I've heard or something on the lines of this) a different kind of muscle compared to weight training and such. He would swim every day and then play rugby for us on the weekend. He would just totally break down. He kept going down injured and asking for muscle rubs and you could see he had a definition from swimming, but it seemed as if he kept a layer of fat with prevented the definition. This kid was a fine, fine rugby player too. I'd swim to keep fit but not on a permanent 3 hour a day morning and night basis.

sugars are carbohydrates so either you weren't on a low carb diet (which is pretty bad and won't cause fat loss) or you were and you're just talking out of you ass during the 2nd part (which you are as well ). Breakdown of muscles is called catabolism, as opposed to anabolism which is the construction of molecules from their consituant parts. Metabolism is the general overview term that is for the chemical reactions that take place in the body, thus catabolism and anabolism are metabolic processes.

swimming is primarily stressing your aerobic energy system (depending on the distance obviously) and isn't a resistance based exercise (well it is kinda b/c water has a higher resistance than air but not the same as doing weights) thus your muscles aren't going to hypertrophy. Either way it shouldn't really affect how often he gets injured unless he's playing rugby while his muscles are fatigued and weakened.
