the un official workout thread


Recommended Posts

You can't lose fat in specific spots exclusively.

Burning fat towards nice abs takes a good diet and total body workouts aka WORK.

Most everyone has strong abdominal muscles, but they're covered by some pudge because it just tends to settle there. I mean, you wouldn't be able to stand up if your core was all flab.

 

vanfullofretards post is on point.

Work your whole body in muscle groups.

You can love food and eat well without becoming a lardass.

Fuck, pretty much all you need to watch as far as food intake is soda, greasy fast food, alcohol, and chips and shit.

 

Also, when you eat is important. You can Google all of this shit. It's not hard to understand, but it's not the easiest thing in the world to commit to.

im making steady progress on my weak ass bench. im currently stalled on my squat, but dead lift is still going up. go figure.

floor presses and close grip inclines seem to have helped me a good amount. i was stalled, started doing these and weight keeps getting added on the bar.

you got proper form?

like jim wendler here:

 

note arched back, feet back, driving heels to floor, upper back nailed to the bench, remove bar and descend with your lats... (try to pull the bar apart with your hands) this really changed things for me. about a year and a half ago. almost immediate strength increase

I did the arched back/ descend with lats.. it helped a little I also did heavier weights with lower reps too so we'll see next week if all that helped.

 

Can anyone give me a summary of hgh? I don't know much about it except that it's naturally produced in your body. Does it aid in muscle growth? Is it even legal?

cool. give yourself a couple weeks to get used to the form, and once you get leg drive into the bench, you'll see your strength increase dramatically.

Hurt my back a while back ago, fell off of my routine. Just got back on it last week.

I'm adding in way more cardio because I have gained some weight. I didn't lose much strength which I surprised about. Anyone see any issue with doing shoulders/bi's on the samde day? I switched things up a bit...

it probably wont help your shoulder pain, but check out some mobility exercises. get a foam roller and roll everything down. a tennis ball for piriformis release is great. since i started doing mobility work and a proper warm up before my work outs i havent been injured, my recovery time is quicker and soreness is greatly reduced. no more dull aches in my knees or hips or anything like that like i would sometimes get. proper warm ups and stretching go a long way

 

check this out for shoulder rehab:

OK, well I am 31 now and have never been to a gym in my life haha, I'm no fat git though I am 6ft and slim, I am looking to build my muscle tone in my arms, shoulders chest and back mainly. Can anyone recommend a good daily workout to get started on this before I end up shelling out some cash and actually joining a gym.

Good question!

 

If you don't have any equipment you're really limited in what you can do, but you're going about it in the right way. I did basic exercises here and there for a couple months before I decided I was serious about paying for a gym and I'm really glad I did that.

 

Do you have any weights laying around? If not all you can really do are push-ups, sit ups, crunches.. maybe pull-ups. And of course running.

 

That's all i got

Yeah the fucking do. I was amazed how little soreness I experience now from hard ass workouts because I warm up beforehand. I still get a little stiff, but I don't get nearly as sore as I used to.

You're should do a total body workout regardless of what areas you want to be improved.. Working your upper body alone could end up being problematic in some ways. Check out THIS site for a shitload of bodyweight exercises you can do at home. After you figure out what program you wanna set up for yourself you can find other resources online. ROSS BOXING has some good exercise regimens on his site. You could also download P90X and get a couple dumbbells and work through that. You don't need a gym. In fact, a lot of people who go to the gym just putz around for an hour and think they worked out, but in reality they half assed it and paid for that privilege.
