Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

meant in terms of time/distance/reps/sets/weights etc hard to judge otherwise. like technically today i walked, jogged, spinted, swam and lifted some weight but i wasn't 'working out' so to speak. just general crap around my house.

The backyard is 70m gate to gate so I usually jog that in a 10 "lap" circuit I guess (so 700m), then I usually do 20 laps of the 10m pool (so 200m), and with the pilates thing, inside the box it came with recommended exercises to do with it, and I do 30 reps of each exercise (6 different). Usually do all of this over an hour.

Not really lifting weights except for general shit around the house such as bags of concrete, laundry baskets etc.

I'd just go the gym but not really confident with that yet. Want to trim a little off and then hit it with my mates who do a shitload of weights and cardio

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

alright good start. Try and now increase the amount of distance you run and swim. Little bits at first, say another 2 laps of the pool and maybe an extra lap of the backyard over the next 2 weeks.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm planning on going to wrestling school late this year/early next, and obviously need to build some sort of muscle seeing as I only weigh 9st13, which is about 140pounds I believe, and i'm 5ft 10 1/2. I used to weigh 18st 6, and that was obviously fat, but i've slimmed down quite a shitload over the last year and a half after going to the gym constantly.

Basically, I did too much cardio work, and i've got a little bit of loose skin on my stomach area which needs sorting out. I was just wondering if anyone had any idea on how much I should train? I don't do many dumbells, or much lifting at all, infact. I've no idea where to start on that. Whenever I go to the gym I mostly run for 15 mins, chest press, ab toner, hip abductor, another ab toner, shoulder press, and then cool down. I know that's not enough, so I need some sort of guidelines to what I should be doing. The gym owner told me to eat twice as much too, which I admittedly find quite hard to do, but i'm determined enough to do it. I've got some 10kg dumbells at home and they're enough for me at the moment but I should obviously look to lift much, much more in the future. So any help will really be appreciated, thanks.

It's all about calorie deficit. Cardio helps that obviously since you are burning calories to help create a deficit.
It's doesn't matter if you do 3 hours of cardio ... if you are still eating 2000 calories over maintenance you are going to gain weight/not lose weight.
A lot of people lose weight and don't even do cardio

Weight training > cardio since muscle mass burns calories.
Both combined is great , but the final answer is your diet is the quickest way to shed fat. Cardio is a great tool to aid in reach a calorie deficit each day


Also the whole excess protein makes you gain fat thing.... for the love of christ STFU
If the protein fits into your macros and a daily calories you aren't going to gain fat.
One certain macronutrient isn't going to make you fat as long as you are within your diet.
On a bulk everyone is going to gain a % of fat depending on how clean your diet is.
You need 1-1.5 grams of protein per lb of weight you are

Eating twice as much with that routine will get you nowhere. You might gain weight, but not in the form you're hoping for. But you already know that. I'd chill out on the ab stuff first of all...as well as the cardio. You can do some light running for maybe 5 minutes before you hit the weights, but dont overdo it. You dont want to be huffing and puffing before you even start lifting. 15 minutes is way too long. Throw that ab shit at the end of your workouts if you really want to do it....thats accessory stuff. You definitely dont want to be that guy who goes to the gym, does a bunch of ab exercises and dumbell curls and goes home. I would just stick with the basic big exercises for now, like bench press, rowing, and squatting. Something like the Starting Strength routine is always a good choice. Obviously though you will be massively limited in what you can accomplish at home as far as accumulating muscle with 20lb dummbells though.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

How does this sound?

Trying to devise a plan/schedule again for my workouts.

Saturday - sort of the "start" of the week for me.

Back and Chest

- lat pulldowns
- seated row (straight back)
- bent over row
- chest press
- bench press
- cable standing fly
- dumbbell bench press

Sunday - either dayoff/break or exercise bike + weights at home (its all I have at home, so its undecided)

Monday -

Shoulder + weight training exercises

- sled shoulder press
- dumb bell front raise
- dumbbell shoulder press (maybe)
- EZ Bar Curl
- hammer curls
- preacher curls
- dips (tricep version)
bench dips
- something else (suggestions?)

Tuesday - BREAK

Wednesday - Focus on cardio

Thursday - Leg and Stomach Exercises

- leg press
- leg extension
- leg curls or something else which I can't remember what its called)

(note: I'm not comfortable with squats at the moment, which is why I'm not doing the "best" squat exercises yet)

- decline abdominal crunches
- medicine ball or holding weight crunches
- oblique twists

Friday - unsure?

Saturday - startover.

Would love your thoughts, but don't go ranting and raving about it, because I'm simply learning and getting the hang of things, designing a workout suitable for me.

Cardio in itself doesn't lose the weight. It will also be food choice first, exercise second. You can do all the cardio in the world but if your food choice kills the entire effort, you will either gain weight or remain level.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

It's look awful I'm afraid (not having a go just saying). If i were you i would something like this to start with then move onto something more advanced if you like.

note: I'm not comfortable with squats at the moment, which is why I'm not doing the "best" squat exercises yet)

At the risk of sounding like a dick, the only way you will get comfortable with squats, is to squat i'm afraid. If you new to them start off with goblet squats (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKmrXTx6jZs ). These will help you get more used to the plane of movement.

Here is what i would do

Workout A:
Goblet squat
Weighted dip
Bent over row
Military press
Bi curls
Planks

Workout B:
Deadlift
Benchpress
Chins (if you struggle then do lat pulldowns instead)
DB shoulder press
Tri pushdowns
Jacknifes

So the week would look like this:
Saturday: A
Sunday: off
Monday: B
Tuesday: off
Wednsday:A
Thursday & Friday off
Saturday: B
You get the picture.
Do 3 sets of 8 for everything.

Hope this is helpful
