Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Cool, thanks. I like pretty much everything you listed, with the exception of hommus.

My goal is to just tone up at the moment really. Not seriously bulking up just yet, but i'd like to bulk up a bit as i'm only about 140 - 145lbs.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Purchased the Total Gym since HBK endorsed it and I'm a huge fucking mark; coupled with my diet and weekly wrestling training I've lost 11 pounds of fat in the past month, down from 179 to 168, and am really starting to tone up. I still have a gut but it's shrinking every day. Pretty crazy to me considering this time a year and a half ago I was close to hitting 210 pounds.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Good for you man, of course if it's the athletic look you're going for.

I used to be a 300 lb fatass without any muscle, now I'm 240-250, pretty massive if I say so myself

Nah I'm just talkin shit, but it's obvious as pro wrestlers we're both going for different looks... you seem to be doing well with the quick paced athletic look.... i'm pretty close to achieving the look im going for



Of course I'm much taller than Tazz

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm 24 years old and I've only been working out and running steady for the last 2 weeks(I used to do it all the time from about since about 17 years old until I was just 23)I've dropped a lot of fat now and I'm at 260, and when I started my workout I was actually 265. So basically I look thinner but I have gained muscle. All without the aid of a special diet, just eating a good amount of decent food when I need to and laying off sugar and salt. I'm just so shocked because while I've always been tall and had a semi decent frame I've never been this big yet and at the same time so thin. I think part of it is just natural, not to knock any of my hard work thus far.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm starting to get back into my routine, but i think t his time i'm going to change it up. It used to be core plus cardio five days a week and i got pretty bored with it. I'm going to try to focus more attention on my legs because i really want to improve my vertical leap.

My workout plan is going to look more like this now.

MWF Core exercises

TTH legs mostly

M-F playing basketball.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm 16 5'9, don't know how much I weight but I've been lifting for 2 months now and I can't see any damn results. I know it's only been 2 months but damn. I do cardio basically everyday.

How long does it take till you actually see results?

I do a good amount of reps nothing to the extent that I'll overwork myself yet I still feel the "burn" and a little tired when I'm done.

So yeah how long does it freaking take? If by 6 months I don't see improvement I don't know what to do.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Don't do big reps. Do bigger weights instead. You don't even need to do much. 5 X 5 is very effective, 6 X 5 or 8 X 4 also work depending on the weight.

Also, what exactly do you do? Focus on presses, squats and deadlifts + pullups b/c they release the maximum amount of GHRH, which are used pretty much by all muscles to grow.

You also need to be eating enough, and perhaps cut out the cardio b/c if you're simply looking at gaining, then cardio is a non-factor. You can lean up later.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

cut back on the cardio, it will affect your gains.

think of a rough guide as;

Power - Reps - 1-6, done quickly
Strength - 1-6
Hypertrophy - 8-12
Endurance - 15+

also, what kinds of lifts are you doing, exercises, resistance etc.

Cleans, squats, and a limited amount of snatches to improve vertical leap... Add in some box jumps every once in awhile, too.

3 sets of 5 reps at the same weight for all the compound lifts (squat, bench, deadlift, press). i.e:

Squat:
45 lbs - 5 reps
95 lbs - 3 reps
115 lbs - 1 rep
125 lbs - 1 rep
135 lbs - 3 sets of 5 reps

Bench:
45 lbs - 5 reps
65 lbs - 2 reps
85 lbs - 2 reps
105 lbs - 3 sets of 5 reps

+1 Pulling Exercise

If you get all three sets of 5 reps, add weight the next workout. If you don't, then you're not eating enough or resting properly.

Routine:

A: Squat, Bench, Cleans (or Chins, Back Extensions, Rows if you can't do cleans)
B: Squat, Press, Deadlift
C: Squat, Bench, Cleans '''

Rotate these on non-consecutive days. M/W/F or T/Th/Sat.
