Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
 
Thought I would bring this thread back, has died many times before but hopefully we can keep it going this time. Basically discuss anything to do with working out, weight lifting, body building, dieting, etc. Feel free to give people tips, ask and answer questions, whatever you guys want.

I started pretty recently myself. Never did anything up until I was like 18 as I was always playing high school sports so never had to worry about getting out of shape. Started doing casually since then and now been going hard for the past 4 months about. I am stronger in virtually every area now, stuff is starting to take shape and I am pretty damn happy with the results.

Goal now is to bulk up, which is tougher then it sounds :$

Keep building your base first. Nothing is more futile than trying to bulk up without an adequate base of muscles first. Four months is not enough to build up a proper base. I've been consistently working out for about a year now and do not have the base to bulk up the right way yet. Granted I'm not trying to bulk up though as I am perfectly content to be 170 with just a base.

well im 5 11 200 pounds i basically live on milk and protein bars lol. I have a cheat day once a week where i eat whatever i want just to keep myself from eating bad stuff the rest of the week.

My workout is all at home i have a bench that you can adjust and i have weights. I do situps on it i put the bench all the way down so your basically doing situps upside down. Then i also do chest i take 20 pound dumbbells in each hand and raise them slowly like 4 sets of 10. Other than that i play basketball outside on my hoop for cardio.

I'm not strong at all, but I'm in great shape. I run stairs for about 45 minutes a day then I do about 200 push ups and sit ups. Then I do 500 flutter kicks before I go to bed. I usually only have a 1,000 calorie diet to so I can stay at 140 pounds.

That is not healthy dude. You should be putting back like 3000 calories.

Working out, knowing what to do, that's easy and pretty much common sense in 2009. Figuring out what your body responds to in terms of substances is a lot harder and takes more time.

Ive been working out for years. Since I was 16 basically. I eat whatever I want, but havent had any fast food in 10 years. And no candy or sweet stuff really. (Not cause its healthy, I just like stuff like apples more than candybars.) I drink more Lite beers and Liquor drinks now. Less full bodied, calorie filled beer, wines, and such.

I go to the gym 3 times a week usually. Strength hasnt really changed much since I was twenty, got as big and strong as I wanted. So its basically maintenance to keep it up. (which is 100x easier then trying to bulk) 90min-2hours in the gym usually only amounts into 45 mins or so of solid lifting. I just love going, being with the friends Ive made there and helping out people. Wife is into all that palates crap and cycle class stuff. Ive been a couple times, I really should take a day and do it weekly. Which I prob will.
At my biggest was when in college. I was playing DT and was like 6'3 280 and could bench 305, 3 times. Now I dont have to be big, and after a couple knee operations. Im down to 235 (220 is my goal), and can still put up around 300 if I had to I feel. (though I haven't tried really putting past 260 on a bar in a couple years.)

Actually some nights when on here. I do some stuff like aussie pullups, situps, and work the stairstepper. Hitting the refresh button between sets. Im just trying to be more defined nowadays. Cause I was like a NWA Hernandez or Warren Sapp style shape. Now more like Tommy Dreamer.(some gut, nice sized, undefined arms)
