Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Im doing a small intro to pro wrestling course and trying to get into shape. what exersizes do you recomend to strengthen upperbody strength if im going to do lifts etc.
ATM im doing crunchs, side sit ups, planking, leg lifts, tricep dips, push ups, hill climbers and squats

for cario extended length hill climbers 5 min each and im building up to 3 mile runs but im only at 1.5 - 2 miles in a single go atm

i know they are mostly focusing on core and legs muscles thats why i am asking for upper body mainly arms.

im getting some dumbells in the next week to do reps with them

also 11 weeks to the seminar

Sorry about your damn luck

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

From a cardio perspective I would recommend running stairs. Also, what worked for me, was start about a 12 min mile jog or however slow you need it to be. The longer you can stay at it the better you will eventually be able to do just try to push yourself as it becomes easier. Furthermore, this may make you look like a idiot, but if you listen to an ipod while you jog, sing along with the lyrics (to your self). I found this greatly increased my endurance, because A) I wasn't thinking about jogging, B) this forces you to breath in and out.

You mentioned dumbbells, I am not sure you mean run with them (if you don't I apologize) but i wouldn't recommend it, I have heard running with weights in your hands (vest on the other hand are good) is incredibly bad for your joints

Eve torres does this, and it's no easy workout. 'stair way to a heavenly body', google her workout video. Yeah it's a chick, but it's still a ridiculous workout.

Lots of shoulder and other joint stability exercises. LOTS OF STRETCHING! then the basic power lifts: Bench, dead lift, squat. some wrestlers I'd follow up are:
+ John Morrison for stability exercises
+ John Cena for Strength Exercises
+ Randy Orton for explosive strength
+ Kofi Kingston for sretch exercises
Even if you don't like those wrestlers, that's mostly their specialties. So google some of their routines, then incorporate some techniques into what you want to be like; the strong Khali wrestler, the bouncy Kofi, the explosive Orton, maybe the grappling Bryan.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Stay away from all these fucking supplements.

Don't do "low carb diets" or Fad Diets as they are known either.

Just eat a healthy balanced diet and exercise, thats how you lose weight and get in shape.

Don't drink energy drinks or take supplements before working out, have a bannana, theres tons of natural healthy energy.

Did cavemen do low carb diets? Hell no they eat a bit of everything and exercised and they weren't fat.

The Rock! Best Of All Time.

I lift twice a week, but haven't incorporated running into my routine yet this year. If I just eat whatever I want, but eat healthy I'm not going to lose any weight. Gotta watch dem carbs man.

I'm black so that's as close to a caveman as you can get I think.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

K so prom is in 2 months and I'd like to be in shape by then. I've lost 12 pounds over the last month and a half (196-184) and my chest has really started to get into form. I think I'm okay with losing fat as I'm planning on running 2 miles a day, 5 times a week ( comes out to like 300 calories according to my treadmill). The main thing I'm focusing on now is my chest. Still going to hit the gym regularly. I'm hoping to get there at least 3 times a week, every other day. Almost every workout I do works the chest and I do them every time and throw some biceps in here and there. They include:
  • Bench Press
  • Incline Press
  • Seated Dips
  • Assisted Dips (I'm making progress - went from 130 - 70 during the course of a month!)
  • Dumbbell Press
  • The rope (where you sit down, lock the setting in (I do the max, 7), and pull the rope down for 40 seconds)

I do all these at comfortable, yet challenging weights and do three sets of 11. I'm hoping to both cut the fat and build my chest and lose the moobs (they're actually getting less and less moobish lolz). Can I do this at this pace in 2 months? I'm hoping to drop another 15 pounds, don't know if that's going to get me where I want to be, but that's my target.

I eat well. Can't stand soda anymore, chips haven't touched my lips in months, and all greasy snack foods are out of the equation. I'm doing really well with the eating part and the exercise part is actually enjoyable. Is there anything else I can do to guarantee I reach my goal in 2 months or should I keep going at this pace?

Edit: I also grab a Chocolate Muscle Milk after every meal for protein.

did cavemen have processed foods, bread, wheat etc? No. Paleo diets, of which there are variations, are all forms of no to low carb diets based on the philosophy of 'eating like a caveman'. So yes, cavemen did have low carb diets. Only the concept of a low carb diet wasn't invented.
