Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

So I got myself a treadmill and have a set workout plan. I get on the treadmill for 30 minutes. 20 of which I will walk, and ten of which is running. The treadmill is also on a bit of an incline, which I am hoping helps. After that and a couple minutes rest, I do 50 situps followed by twenty pushups. Now I am trying to get rid of a bit of a belly, and shape up my stomach. Disregarding the pushup portion of the workout, would you guys say this is a good workout? Any altercations to be made?

P.S. I do the situps and pushups daily, but was planning on doing the treadmill 3 times a week. Open to suggestions.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

On a completely unrelated note, I am starting to makeover my garage into a gym. Just recently purchased some Pendlay bumper plates so they should be arriving soon. Starting to install a heating system in the garage, too as it is getting chilly here in Chicago.

Here's what else I need or should compile within the next month:

1. York Squat Rack
2. Pendlay Elite 20KG Bearing Bar
3. Platform / Rubber Mats
4. Pendlay Flat Bench
5. Collars, Technique Plates
6. New belt, do-win shoes, & foam roller

Still have about $1500 to invest (at the very minimum). It will be so worth it though.

Wow. Impressive. You've got it all, huh? Almost like a commercial gym with the multi station, free weights, and smith machine. I bet the gym treats you well. Sounds awesome.

An olympic weightlifting type of set up would work wonders for me. That's all I need. Platform to lift on, a squat rack, a barbell, and some bumper plates. I am salivating from the mouth while thinking about it. Mmmm

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

The multi station is pretty basic but you can do a heap of stuff with it. Goes up to 180lbs/81kgs. I use mainly for pulldowns, seated rows and most tricep work. I love the Smith Machine.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Just a thought.
There is a guy who is built like Batista (just comparing) but he is shorter. Probably 5'9. He comes to the pharmacy (where I work) and gets all these anti-depressants (he is a regular, being coming for 3 years maybe). The guy is kind of quiet, I talk to him a few times about supplements and working out for a little when we are not busy. He does not seem like he is happy. I try not get too personal with the guy as it is non of my business. But do some of you feel sad or depressed when working out? I mean I know your supposed feel "happier" as you get more self confidence, more energy, etc.... I myself feel great, but I just have little more of temper than usual (I have that latino temper), before I started working out years ago.

DID YOU NOT GET THE MEMO SON?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

21 in January, 6.0ft 305lbs... Hey guys lol i embarked on my 'journey' when i injured my knee really badly playing football and couldnt really do much excercise for nearly a year, add to that a very poor diet for the last 4 years without ever really paying attention to my weight or rather, not caring too much it hit me a few weeks ago that maybe i should "sort myself out".

I've lost 20lbs in 2.5 weeks with a diet consisting of a 'breakfast bar' (nutrigrain), no lunch (doubt many of you will think thats a good idea lol) and then dinner. I've also cut out all soft drinks and energy drinks (which i used to ONLY drink) and now drink water. I'm thinking that after a while this diet might backfire as i'm probably not gonna enough of something or other...

I have an elliptical trainer/cross trainer whatever theyre called and some weights, any ideas on some sort of routine? I've looked through the thread and i'm thinking i should do some weights before running, or walking as Rajah says it's better

Also, am i right in thinking it's easier to turn fat into muscle? As opposed to simply gaining muscle from nothing? If this is the case then should i be turning a substantial amount of fat into muscle and THEN losing weight and thus becoming a tank? Or would i just end up looking like a smaller, whiter, version of Mark Henry?

Thanks for any help, maybe i should take a 'before' picture?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

1. you can't turn fat into muscle.
2. your diet is still terrible. eat a better more nutritious breakfast, eat lunch as well. basically what is sounds like is that you're cutting way way back on calories, which is why you're losing weight. if you don't eat properly then your weight loss will plataeu, and you'll likely put the weight back on.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

You cannot turn fat into muscle. If you gain fat quickly, chances are you'll gain muscle quite quickly too, dependent on your body type. You can do both, build muscle and lose fat at the same time but I'd concentrate on one more than the other and let the other be a 'side-effect'.

If I were you, I would cut down on fat for a while until you're decently toned (8% - 10% body fat, maybe?). If you want a good physique, this would be better, but if you're in quick need of power and strength, then start lifting.

---

Question, how many calories do you burn usually per day? And what's your RMR?
