Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Someone write me up a cardio only (weights later plz) weight loss routine. I know what to eat, I just don't know what a good starting place is for exercise. I'm looking to lose, I dunno, 20 pounds.

Speaking of nutrition myths.. I really enjoyed when a few of my friends went on a diet to 'flush out their systems' by basically only drinking water/fruit juice for a week. Honestly, what crazy fads people will follow.

There are benefits of eating small and often, just as there are benefits to eating large and less frequently. The results will be the same if we train hard and rest well (and hit our macros/calories etc obv).

I just want to stress again that I never said that eating 3 times is better than 6. I'm saying that it doesn't matter. I eat 6, but I could happily go back to eating 3 and achieve my goals. The benefits of 6 are clear, but that's because it aids people in being able to have more manipulation of their macros (and stave off hunger) and not because it offers us any kind of metabolic boosts. It's all just a matter of calories in/calories out.

I don't want some heated, sarcastic argument, btw. I hope we can all benefit.
You know this was an interesting argument before UFC came on and put my ass to sleep with boring $55 fights. I can't believe me and my friends didn't just go to Buffalo Wild Wings. Now I have a headache.

@ GA: Doesn't matter what kind of cardio you do if your aim is fat loss. Just work the calorie count to around -500 per day. Run, Swim, Cycle w/e.

Doesn't matter, man. As long as you're in caloric deficit and are taking in enough protein to keep any muscle mass, you'll be golden. Like HoL said; aim for a 500 cal deficit below your maintenance level. I personally like to use a heavy bag, but cycling, running etc will be fine.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Just started going to the gym, used to be really active as a kid/teenager, but when i went to uni it all kinda stopped.

I'm a bit on the large side at 5' 9" 16 stone 10, more of an old school rugby type build than truly fat though. Still, saying that, the aim is to lose around 3 1/2 stone.

Been at it for a few weeks now currently going to the gym 3 times a week, mainly aiming to get a calorie burn of over 1,000. Mostly on the cross trainer and bike to reduce the impact on my joints whilst carrying this weight, I'm carrying a fair amount of muscle mass as it is so avoiding the weights for now, with the intention of toning up once I'm getting down in size.

Also Playing golf 2-3 times a week which suprisingly gets a decent calorie burn due to walking/carrying clubs for 7,000 yards over a period of around 4 hours.

I've been recording my diet and exercise using livestrong.com and the aim for my diet is around 2,000 a day consumption which so far I've managed to adhear to for 11 days out of 14. So this week some of my days my deficit has been 1200-1400 calories based on a 2,000 calorie diet other days only 600-700.

Any advice is appreciated and will be taken on board with this.

Thinking of starting to record my results visually from next week to use both as motivation and a reminder once I get to my goal weight.

I don't really think this is the best approach, mate.

I've PM'd you with a great cutting guide.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I wouldn't go overboard with the calorie deficit. There's a limit to how much fat the body is capable of releasing. The remainder burnt will only tire you out and cost your recuperation, even short-term.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Agreed. Plus you're just gonna cut into that muscle mass that you want to be preserving.

The notion of 'toning' is a myth too. It's just lowering body fat!

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Cheers guys, i$e I'll have a decent read of that tonight.

My diet is extremely healthy at the moment. I've not felt burnt out or tired after doing what I've been doing, and I'm feeling better in general along with it(not just the endorphine rush after exercise), only complaint is joint pain, but with my weight it's too be expected. Given my past fitness/sports history it was natural to me to jump in on the calorie/cardio side.

But after skimming i$e's link there's a lot I need to change in the gym. I'll probably be back in here in a week or two after changing it up to let you know how it's going. I might not stick to what the link says precisely as I need to cater to what I'm capable of, and what I have available.

The advice is definitely appreciated.
