Have you seen a Coleman video? That guy takes 60+ pills a day and most of them are prescriptions. I don't care what anyone says, the guy isn't healthy.

I have to disagree little to your post, muscle mass does equal healthy, but only to an extent. Someone that is 5'10" and shredded at 280lbs is probably not healthy. Someone that has visible muscle and not too much fat is probably healthy.

As far as America's ideal body image, Coleman and Cutler are far from it. Bodybuilders haven't been considered mainstream since the 90s, and most of them are referred to as freaks instead of having ideal body images. Aesthetics appeal left bodybuilding long ago and was replaced by un-human width and muscle mass.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

You don't have to be healthy to be fit.. I mean, you can be a fking lazy couch potato and still eat good foods and do everything that leads to a healthy life style, but I guess being a couch potato would lower how healthy you are :P

Fit is having a good body.. atleast that's the main part. It means you can go fking run for a while lol.. I heard that in high school your ''major test'' is that you have to run around a 400 m course for 20 minutes.. if you run anything below, even 19 minutes.. you fail.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Probably a stupid question...
But should you stay away from working out if you are unwell?

I've had a kind of mild flu the past week or so, and the aches and pains/sore muscles have made me stay away from the exercise equipment in my home.
However, I'm going crazy not being able to use it! I feel like I'm gaining weight, just sitting around on my ass. Haha.

Any suggestions for light exercise I could possibly do in the mean time?
Or is that a bad idea?

I've just seen him work out. However, I've seen his body, which is enough, as well as what people toss around as his cycles.

I'm not saying muscle mass is unhealthy at all, what I'm saying is people that are clueless about nutrition and bodybuilding (two very different things) seem to think that more muscle mass= more "in shape", healthier, more fit.

Just rest and get back to good health. I usually still run when I am feeling sick but really that is up to you.

Up your Vitamin C intake and hit the gym.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I am in dying need of new exercises!

Anybody have exercises that will start to reveal my already starting to reveal 6 pack? I am currently on vacation and I have probably eaten the most I have in like the whole summer, and I still have maintained a weight of 127 pounds! That means I only gained 1 pound! And surely, I am going on a hike with my grandparents in a few days so hopefully that will do something.

I need exercises to reveal my 6 pack! I will green rep you if you give me good ones!

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

hanging leg raises is the #1 ab exercise as said on Mens Health. Hang from a chinup bar (works grip too) and slowly raise your legs trying to make your knees touch your chest, then back down. DON'T SWING YOUR UPPER BODY AT ALL. If you are swinging, you are using momentum. Do 12 reps if you can, then do 3 more sets of 12.

At 127 pounds your abs should show automatically unless you're like 5'0. You don't want any extra mass? Why the hell are you eating salads and starving yourself when you should be packing on muscle and gorging your mouth with food?

Anyways, for the two that asked questions about ab exercises/recommendations.. Look back in the thread. I've wrote up plenty of my views/concepts on what I do to keep a good mid-section.
