Default Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Hey I'm getting a gym membership within the next 2 weeks. It's a gym that's inside of a local hospital here. It's really professional looking. It's $88 the first month then $33 every month after that. Is that average for a really good gym? How much are you guys paying?

Anyways. I just got back from the doctors today for a checkup since I have type-2 Diabetes. I used to weigh 392 pounds I'm down to 326. I'm 6'4 so I don't really look like 326 I kinda look like 280 probably. Anyways I haven't worked out all I've done was changed what I put into my mouth, what I drunk and I'm a bit more active like I walk alot more instead of sitting around all day. I don't mean I walk a mile a day but I'm more just generally more active with doing everyday shit instead of being a coach potato. I also don't eat all that healthy I just don't eat as much fast food but I still eat it. Which I hope when I get into the gym it motivates me to stay away and eat healthy.

I have a concern. Since my weight loss I've noticed my arms look a bit more defined which is awesome motivation but there's still alot of arm fat on my biceps and when I pull the skin on it and let go it doesn't go back into place it kinda stays there which concerns me because my goal is to cut down to 250 pounds and stay there and just build muscle and stay fit but I'm really concerned if I don't get into a gym fast and start lifting I'll be 250 pounds and have a shitload of loose skin that I can't get rid of unless surgery.

If I get a gym membership soon and start lifting + cardio will this stop loose skin? Or is it just a given that if you were morbidly obese and lose a ton of weight you're gonna have permanent skin damage (ie: stretch marks and loose skin)? Stretch marks I can deal with, they'll eventually fade but I'm really concerned about having loose skin. What do you guys recommend I do to keep my skin firm and tight. I'm not just talking about my arms either I still have a belly that hangs and would love to get it smaller and more tighter without any noticeable loose skin.

Any tips? I've never ever been inside a gym befor.

Well, it's your choice but I wouldn't really go into a gym. Gym's probably have more higher advanced technology, but I just do the basics.. lifting (Dumbells) which you can buy at any sports store for like really cheap.. I have a treadmill that I run on every night and I have certain programs I work on to work on my abs as that is what I am mainly focusing on as of now..

Perhaps this is what every workout routine shares in common: a total disregard for human psychology. We need to be excited about a program, and as soon as the excitement runs out, our motivation comes to a dead halt. We abandon the program. Maybe we stop working our all-together.

My point is that no matter how effective a workout routine is, if it bores you, it’s useless. I would even go so far as to say that a less effective but highly exciting routine is better than a highly effective but boring routine. The reason is simple. You will remain committed to working out more consistently when you are excited about working out. You will then in time get the results you’re after.

But let’s entertain another possibility. Maybe all workout routines are self-undermining because of this fact: they’re routines. And any routine — no matter how varied it starts off — will become boring. And as soon as boredom sets in, motivation drops. You stop looking forward to going to the gym, or you put less energy and focus in your training. As a result, you don’t make the gains or goals you’re after. It’s a vicious cycle.

Which brings me to my main point. Stop using a workout routine. Don’t stop training, of course. Just stop training along the same set of principles and rules that every program locks you into. Change up your workout frequency, your reps, your sets, your exercises. Or cycle through different routines. Experiment.

But wait a minute. You might be thinking, What if the constant change approach turns into a new program?! What if you become locked into the so-called ‘change principle’? Can we avoid that? Can we avoid the boredom that will inevitably set in from having to always experiment and change things up?

Here’s my solution. If all you’ve been doing is changing your routine, try staying consistent with one program. If you’re always experimenting, then not experimenting will be the new thing for you.
Read this on another website. This guy is actually shredded and has a ton of strength which is hard to obtain for many naturals. He squats 300x5, Benches 225x12 quite easily, and Deadlifts about 500lbs while maintaining a 4-8% body fat.

I don't know if anyone is familiar with Kane Sumabat from Controlled Labs, but this guy is his full time, real life workout partner. I love reading his columns and insight, guy is always point on. A lot of his general thoughts apply to the way I go about training.

Thought people would maybe enjoy reading it a bit.

Kind of a stupid question to ask, considering you'd know best by looking in the mirror but I'd say not.

I'd say no, but I'd be careful not to gain anymore, but it all depends on your muscle mass, seig as ur 15, u probably dont have much, as a 15 year old, you might wanna lose a stone, but don't pressure yourself, it's not the end of the world if you don't

I read this in an article in mens fitness and really is the best advice anyone could get, especially all the young guys. How much you weigh is really just a number that you should not worry at all. I would not ever even look at a scale unless you are doing that cutting stuff for MMA, wrestling, etc. If you look in the mirror or whatever and are proud with how you look or the progress you are making then keep on going, do not let some number change that.
