Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I would suggest getting your diet and sleeping patterns right as lifting weights is only part of the deal. As far as diet goes eat foods that are rich in protein and low carbs, e.g. fish, chicken, lean meat, also eat fruit, try to avoid fatty foods. You are limited to what you can do at home but Situps, calf raises, stomach crunches, dips and of course pushups help. Also make sure you stretch to get your flexability. I would recommend going to the gym, as you're limited to what you can do at home. If you do go to the gym don't go overboard with the weight as you said you want an atheltic look, so go low weight high reps and just concentrate on getting your form right. e.g. tense your abs, keep your back straight etc.
