the un official workout thread

Fuck, yoga feels great once you are finished, but I hate the shit out of that shit.

It's the most sweat producing workout I've ever done. Maybe just as bad as an hour of plyometric shit.

 

MAR, you from Israel?

On my way there in a couple more months.

So I did the yoga, and wow...so many hot chicks. I was 1 of 4 other guys, all straight too—surprising.

 

The yoga wasn't that bad either, definitely tricky.

I'm progressing, i think. I need to work on slipping and getting my body weight into my punches. Its still by far the hardest thing I've ever done.

Yeah we jump rope for three rounds. We shadow box, work the bags, and get time with the instructor but idk if that's drills. Its pretty affordable since he charges a flat rate for the month.

that's fuckin dope, sounds like my kind of workout.

 

so has anyone been doing the Convict Conditioning from the e-book that Casek uploaded?

i've been doing it for a few weeks now and was gonna post my progress if anyone else has been doing it as well.

 

 

Let's hear it. I'm curious about someone who uses that exclusively.

That's up for debate. Maybe on a small scale you can, but you are not going to put on 20 lb of muscle then lose 20 lb of fat.

 

If you are trying to get big but putting on to much body fat try reducing carbs and still bulk. Or quit bulking all together and cut off the fat. Keep trying to lift heavy.

 

I droppded 20 lb this spring by only cutting carbs out of my supper and doing more conditioning and cardio.

Been doing it close to everyday for 3 weeks. 50 push ups 50 leg raises 50 squats 50 jumping jacks and running.

 

I have noticed a vast improvement in my arms. Definition has increased. Overall I just feel a whole lot stronger. I got more work to do. But I'm keeping this up. Best routine I've used.

Gym yoga is a joke. It might be a good place to start so you can get over whatever fear, anxiety, or story you have about it all.

But go to a real studio. The personal instruction on the breathing and poses is invaluable.

Try hot vinyasa flow for a real workout.

Or Bikram if you want to die.

I'm not trying to become a yoga instructor, just doing it because my boxing coach told me to. That said there was enough attention paid by this instructor to both posing and breathing.

Yeah, theres no need to take a hardline approach to any form of yoga unless it is your life.

As long as you have a decent instructor.

Those other forms are insane though, Bikram yoga...I don't know how people don't pass out from dehydration.

Is it possible to burn fat while still putting on muscle?

 

I've recently realized I'm developing a third roll......interval training starts today.

 

 

its possible to do, but very very difficult.

 

since you need to limit calories to lose weight, and you need excess calories to put on muscle effectively, these two things counter progress of each other.

 

my advice, break it up into two stages:

 

stage 1. lose fat with cardio and proper diet

stage 2. gain muscle with resistance training and proper diet.

 

just focus on one first, and then the other.

 

 

you will get better results this way.

I signed up for a marathon in December. Anyone got any advice? Shoes? Ways of training that worked for you? Any advice would be nice.

I have been on a 10 running team... provided it was not a marathon i did learn how to train for long distance running. We did an exercise called mile-repeat. go to a track run your 4 laps (1 mile) at a pace that is about 80% say that mile ends up being 6:30. After that mile jog 2 laps and repeat 6:30 mile. Do this for 5 "sets" so in total you 7 miles (5 for time, 2 miles at the slow job pace). This teaches you how to manage your pace once your heart rate is already through the roof. Being that your doing a marathon perhaps you would ideally want to build up do maybe doing 10 miles for time etc... WARNING this shit fucking sucks dude... it kicks your ass but works.. My mile times went from about 730 to 630 and i ended up running my 10 mile in 68 minutes (about 650ish mile time so it was close to what i trained for)

so last week was excruciatingly painful, but the good painful. im about healed up this week but i have an acute soreness in my right elbow.

 

about a year and a half ago i tore a tendon in my right arm (still unsure how). the hand specialist i went to said it was an extreme case of chronic tennis elbow. at first it was a very sharp pain, but the less i used the are the less it would hurt and the pain would became dull, then about month ago it seemed to have vanished. well i went to the gym 3x last week and i feel like its slightly returned. i skipped yesterday but im going back tomorrow. anyone have a similar experience?

any suggestions?
