Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Weights are expensive as fuck.

All I have is this machine at my house, but i'm sure weights would be better.

Any non-weight related workouts for slimming down? Right now I'm just jogging for about an hour a day.

Pull some chairs together and do dips. Bang out some push ups. Get a chin bar for cheap and do some weighted chins. Lose weight in the kitchen doe.

Jump rope to throw a little bit of change in with the jogging if you ever get tired of it.

Also, the chairs that i$e recommended can be used to throw in a few variations of pushups. Incline, decline, and deep stretch by positioning the chairs a little wider than normal, allowing your chest to go further down than it would if it were on regular ground. Then you have normal, on the floor pushups. I swear by keeping your elbows as tight to your lats as possible and not teetering out. I read somewhere that great Russian strongmen of the past did hundreds of those a day with elbows in tight and ever since I've been doing them that way with better results. As you advance, throw in some plyometric or "explosive" pushups where you literally push your self off the ground.

Then you can throw in your situps, air squats, lunges, calf raises, pull ups, chin ups, flutter kicks, planks, etc.

Don't forget the neck though. Look up wrestler's bridges so you don't wind up looking like a John Basedow v. 2.0 toolbag.

The frat boys have nothing else to do now that football season is over for the most part. Got to get back in shape for next season's grueling beer pong tournament with their bros by adhering to the following routine:

Monday: Chest, abs and arms
Tuesday: Chest, abs and arms
Wednesday: Chest, abs and arms
Thursday: Chest, abs and arms
Friday: Chest, abs and arms
Saturday: Chest, abs and arms
Sunday: Chest, abs and arms

I second the jump rope. I decided to do a bunch of it after I watched the whole Rocky series in high school for the first time, really good stuff. I think Ali also did like 5 hours a day, or maybe it was 15 minutes.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

question on the IF:
I get up around 8 or 9 AM, then I like to do cardio (though I almost never do) in the morning. I fast then till around 4/5 PM, will have an apple and some kind of protein, go lift, then really eat afterwards. Is it really necessary to
a) do cardio as well as lifting on IF (I like to eat a lot)?
b) take a tiny protein shake after my morning cardio?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Okay guys need a bit of help..
I joined a gym this week and I have been going but I'm not exactly sure what I'm meant to be doing there, and what to eat and stuff. I got weighed in at 87.7kg and I'm 191cm tall with 16% body weight. My goals are to lose the fat off my stomach and to get bigger arms ya know..
So can anyone help me on what to eat, how often I should work out at the gym and what equipment to use. Would be rly greatful guys!

Just basics.. eat one gram per pound of your body weight so that would be about 192g for you. Get your protein from fish, chicken, red meat... if you can't get there from foods look at getting some protein whey is the best. Also eat veges and fruit and go easy on the carbs and sugar. If you want to get big, skip the machines and go for the free weights like dumbbells. Work different body parts on different days. e.g. chest/triceps on one day and back/biceps on another. Lift light to start and concentrate on good form. (keep your back straight, no swinging, tense your core (stomach) concentrate on your breathing inhale on the easy movement exhale on the hard movement. If you want to lose weight also add some cardio work to your routine, the rowing machine is good and it works your upper body as well.
