Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Workouts have been coming along pretty nicely lately. I just have a couple questions regarding my weak areas.

1) How many days a week should I train my abs?

2) What are the best exercises for calfes other than calf raises? and how ofton should you train your calfes each week?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Down 35lbs since January. My main goal is to keep building my chest and tightening my abs as well as cutting a few extra lbs to kind of clean up my stomach area because there's still fat there I'd like and need to cut. Currently at 161lbs.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've decided to bulk up a bit before cutting. Im at 5'10, 177lbs. Starting using creatine again. Do you guys recommend mixing it with fruit juice or just drink it with water, and then eat a banana, oatmeal something high in carbs?

One of my main problems is I can't really decide what I eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Its whatever is made as I'm starting my first year of college this year, and still live at home. I do snack a lot and have a few too many sodas lol. So subbing those with a piece of fruit would probably help a lot.


I run for 20 minutes straight on the tread mill; usually burning around 500 calories, then stop for 30 seconds, hit 3 variants of crunch machine - usually equaling 300-400 situps - 20x reps, then generally end on the bike machine, rowing machine or working on my legs. I hit gym Tuesday, Weds, Thursday without fail and run or hit gym again on the weekend! My gym is now part of my life, as soon as I finish work I hit it, that way not gone home and changed, or rest, I just honestly carry on like it's a daily thing.

- Hope this helps!

1.) I personally lift 4 -5 days a week, and end with some abs. Never been way too sore the next day. So I'd say any day you lift.

2.) calf raises and running. maybe the step machine as well. I just tack calves on with my leg day.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Abs get worked enough on your compound lifts. I'd also never lift more than 4 days a week although I guess it depends on your split. I do 3.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

i'm in the gym about 3 days a week. Sometimes 4 but not too often. I generally do a bit of core work at home on days i'm not in the gym.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

What Do you think about circuit-training? I mean a lot of people dislike it, even for losing wieght, but from 2 weeks I've changed my program with it and I feel better
