Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

you're working your legs and not your upper body?

you're not training your upper body properly?



kinda need to give more info if you want a proper answer.

Makes sense. You have a high metabolism. People like you have it easy at losing weight.

Oh and Sticksy, take it from me. Leg's are much easier to get muscular and tone than your upper body. The calf's especially. 2 weeks of working out and they feel like you've been working out for a year.

Disagree. They're easy to get strength gains in (as are other big muscle groups ie back, chest) but hard to hypertrophy. Regardless he wants to know why his upper body isn't getting stronger, and it doesn't take a genius to see he needs to give a lot more information like the exercises, weight, reps, sets, how often etc.

The calves especially?!! Congratulations, you are in the 5 % of the population that doesnt bitch about their stubborn calves when it comes to hypertrophy. Theres a reason people are always searching for the "perfect calves routine"....and you get answers all across the board.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I found the calves comment a bit off as well. They are the most stubborn muscle for anyone to get decent gains from.

High metabolism? He considers a high carb diet 150 g CHO. That isn't very 'high'... Metabolism is based off of chemical reactions. There's anabolism and catabolism. Your metabolic rate, which is what you are refering to, is largely based off of metabolic conditioning. Judging by the way he/she is conditioning their metabolic rate, 150 g CHO being considered 'high carb' does not = high metabolism.

Calves are also reliant on genetics, for the most part. You'll see top level IFBB bodybuilders (cough - Dennis Wolf - cough) with horrible calves despite putting in insane amounts of work.

I hear running is the best strategy. Gonna order a treadmill in 2-3 weeks. I'm eating fatty food less, but don't really wanna go on a diet, since like I said my stomach is not a big issue. I'm currently doing 50 situps, 20 pushups, 10 ab crunches each day. I don't know what its really doing, but I hope its working for something. What altercations should I make to my daily routine?
Well, let me analyze this context.

-You eat fatty food to a lesser extent than you did, which in all likelihood, can still be a lot of fatty food, as you termed it.

-You haven't watched your diet intently nor do you want to monitor what you're fueling yourself with.

-Your stomach is not a big issue even though you're striving for a six pack? Contradiction... Unless of course you don't care what your stomach looks like but that defeats the purpose of striving for the said six pack?

-You are exercising like a woman.

-You are unsure about the effect it has had on you.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

FUCK...ME. Just popped my shoulder out of socket again after tripping over a chair in a dark room and trying to catch myself on the wall from falling. That was 30 seconds of pure agony before it went back in somehow after moving my arm around. Ive had a shoulder instability issue for like 10 years since i originally hurt it but ive learned to deal with it by avoiding certain positions with my arm. Ive had some twinges here and there but this is the second time since the original injury though that i felt it completely pop out. Man...this is going to set me back now. I need a beer...cause that shit hurt!
