Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

depending on how long your break is, don't bother. If it's like just a week, you can afford to take of; but there's no reason you have to, some people just find it easier rather than having to think about working out. do your pushups and stuff, etc. but don't feel guilty if you don't.

lower reps is better for building muscle. Even on a cut you won't just stop building muscle, it just halts it more. But, the idea is your engaging the muscles you do have better by doing lower reps; thus burning more calories. Harder work causes more testosterone release, a big reason they tell people to squat and deadlift; those are huge muscle groups.

I personally, imo, I think, if it were me, I would rather do more reps while cutting. But I like the idea of endurance training while cutting. you don't HAVE to do lower reps, but I can see why i$e would recommend it.

Look up "Starting Strength Program". That will give you an idea of where to start.

My calories will be on a deficit so the muscles won't be able to build?
Bullshit. If you have never followed a set program and have never lifted seriously before, your muscles will respond regardless of whether or not you eat at a surplus.

Btw, I am going on holiday next week and there's no gym, should I just do like push ups, (pull ups if I can find somewhere), sit ups, planks, shoulder taps, etc or just leave it and wait till I come back?
Never, ever pass a pull up bar without knocking out a few reps. Pushups, situps, leg raises, flutter kicks, prisoner squats, lunges, etc. will all get you by. There are some pretty ripped dudes who do nothing besides calisthenics and are bigger than people who have lifted weights for years.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Getting my diet sorted out after getting back from the Himalayas. Had to have some tasty but not healthy food after coming back, being away from it for so long.

It was probably the most intense physical training of my life there. Food wasn't bad, but monks are monks.

Probably in the best shape of my life right now aside from when I was pro.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Went as a tribute to my MMA teacher who died three months ago. He always talked about it. I spent most of my time near (well about 500 Kms removed) a little mountain town called Leh in Kashmir.

And yeah, climbed mountains, ran up them, martial arts, a little bit of chores etc. GOAT monks. They were so hospitable, worked me like a dog but hospitable nonetheless.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Weekly check in...DDP Yoga and a cleaner diet has yielded a 13 pound loss for me in less than a month. Obviously that's massive gains very quickly, so I dont expect to keep that pace up, but I'm THRILLED with my progress.

Insanity Workout DVD

Has anyone tried it? I know it's kind of pricey.

I'm on day 16, and it's killing me! I can see why it gets great reviews. Im not noticing too much difference in my body yet, just little things like more fllexable and my legs are far more toned.

Has anyone else give it a go?

Re: Insanity Workout DVD

I did Insanity, P90X, Beast Body and that Tap Out XT. I kind of like trying new workout dvd's and I loved Insanity. Your body will be killing you, but it really works, especially in month 2. In month 1 I lost about 10 pounds, but in month 2 I lost another 18 pounds. My cardio also got much better.

Nice to here it worked!

When did you start to notice a different in your abs? Ie: Toning

I've only done 2 of the cardio abs disks up to now.

Re: Insanity Workout DVD

I completed insanity. it's good. it's great for flexibility, you're right. the only hard/bad part about it is the 2nd half with the stretching day (or they call it "off-day"); it's super hard for guys who aren't real flexible.

check out the workout thread at the top of 'Anything' section. A few people in there have tried it, plus lots of other similar programs.
