Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've just started my regular Spring workout routine again and I was just wondering about some eating/protein shake tips to maximise my results.
Currently I work out about 3 times a week. I haven't really got a nailed schedule. For instance; Wednesday is a bit of weights and abs before spinning 50 mins (this is the only day that's regular). Thursdays are bandy which I attend when I have the time. Might throw in a couple of hours on Friday and Sunday night were we just go around the gym doing the different machines trying to work out the different muscle groups. In addition to that I play some football when I feel like it.
I'm 185 cm and about 70-75 kg and I'm not looking to get bulked up or anything. Just trying to get more defined muscles and loose some of that winter fat.
Anyways, I was just wondering what would be smart to eat/drink before, say weights/spinning? Regular eating and drinking tips before and after a workout would be appreciated.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I went on a 2 mile jog on a local park yesterday which has sort of encouraged me to start doing more excercise. I started doing weights when I felt like it a few months ago but have never really stuck to anything. I'm 5 feet 10 and currently 150 ibs and I'm hoping to get more definition into my stomach and chest area aswell as gettiing down to around 128 ibs. I'm starting the following routine on tuesday/wednesday and I would like for one of the more knowledgeable fitness guys to tell me if this will work or is good enough as tbh I'm pretty clueless.

1 hour on cross trainer or a 2 mile run (I've been doing these regardless anyway)
270 reps doing various lifts with my dumbells such as bench presses, bicep curls and so on.
300 reversed crunches
300 regular crunches

I've been doing the above routine in various spirts recently but I've not really been eating stuff that helps muscle growth though so I haven't beeen noticing as much difference as I'd like. However I'm going to purchase some pro pretipe (sp) tomorrow as a friend recommended it and instead of having food I'm just going to have 3 pints of that per day which will result in around 600-700 calorie intake which is usually about what I have during a day.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Just out of curiosity, why are you trying to get down to 128 at 5'10?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Well I was 128 before Christmas and had hardly any fat but no muscle and since I've gained a little fat and a little muscle and I'm hoping to burn that little bit of fat but be toned at the same time.

Nolo King suggests trying to not lose so much weight!

Weighing 150 pounds at that height is okay, just work on turning the fat into muscle!

Losing that much weight will make you really skinny, not even sure if it is healthy, lawls!

You can't spot reduce fat but losing that much weight is unhealthy. At 5'10, 150 is a comfortable and a relatively light weight. Just watch your diet & exercise regularly.

Go something like high protein/high fat/low carbs.

You want to be 128 at 5'10? That's not really healthy. If you want to gain QUALITY weight, as in not gain weight without getting any sort of gut, then I can help you with that. If your goal is just to be really skinny then I guess running a lot and eating "filling" foods and high fiber foods when you do eat is the answer. 700 cals a day for someone your age is pretty much insane though.

FYI, there's no such thing as "turning fat into muscle"

Was interested in trying that out and Kane Sumbatt from Controlled Labs follows this model.
I would be really careful on overtraining doing a two-a-day type workout. If both sessions are intense, you are pushing it too much IMO. I know alot of people that do something like this, but not two workouts per day. Say, I work chest on day 1... on day 2, I work back. So, on day 1 I do heavy chest, and on day 2 before my back workout starts, I do 3 or 4 sets of really light chest... then move on to heavy back... day 3, I work shoulders... I do light back, then move into the heavy shoulders.

Training twice per day, 5 or 6 days per week is just too much... most trainers that aren't crazy will agree on that. In fact, most trainers say that 3 to 5 times per week, no more than 1 hour workouts are more than enough to do strength training.

Not trying to flame, but even if you are 12 years old, 5'10" 128lbs is dangerously underweight... in fact, 150lbs is borderline. Remember, weight doesn't mean that much anyway... what matters is how much fat you have on your body. Muscle weighs more than fat anyway, so all you should be worried about it eating right and getting some muscle on your body. You could be 5'10" and 225 and if your bodyfat % is low, you will look great.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

That is not really that small tbh. I can see why you guys are saying not to lose weight and try to get to that but I was a pretty small guy when I was that young and I was skinny as well. Was a skinny kid but I played sports and everything all the time so weight stayed down. Even now I am like 155 at about 5'11" and am solid. Would like to be more bulky but does not bother me to much. 150 is definitely not borderline for a 12 year old kid. He should be eating more though, 700 calories is definitely not enough.
