Try working out your tibialis muscle. If you're lucky the gym you go to has a "tibia raise" piece of equipment.

Used to get them horribly when I ran in a pair of cheap $50 Nike running shoes. Then I bought a $150 pair and the problem went away. Felt like I was running on a cloud. Shoes can make all the difference.

thanks for the advice, i do need to upgrade my shoes for sure. i've never done tiablis excercises, but i'm looking them up now.

 

as for enjoying running, not totally. i do it to burn some fat fast, excercise my dogs, and releave some stress..

 

i'm good for 2-3 miles outside at a good pace or at about "7" for 2-3 miles on a treadmill.

I see.

Well, as far as the dog walking, that's a must.

As far as the rest of the jogging, I'd abandon it if I were you.

Firstly, the treadmill. It is useless for anything besides a warm up and the mileage you do on it is not nearly accurate because you aren't using all of your leg muscles to "run" on it. You are basically bouncing up and down on it. You could get the same amount of exercise doing jumping jacks.

 

Jogging doesn't burn fat fast.

It's steady state cardio and fucking boring, not to mention it's hurting your shins.

 

You could get much more out of sprinting 2 or 3 times per week if you're willing to change it up.

Just mark out a spot that is about 100 yards and gun it, rest, then do it again.

Do that until you can't do it anymore and you're done.

Takes like 10-15 minutes.

Burns way more fat and saves muscle.

 

Here's an article.

Yeah, I mean if you enjoyed jogging it'd be different.

I personally hate it with all my heart.

Sprinting is fun for me though and it's over and done with in 20 minutes.

You can also feel your legs and ass getting stronger after doing them for a few weeks.

yo kiddies... i need some help finding a program.. the particulars

 

-been running and doing body weight stuff of and on for the past year. prior to that weights regularly

-It's too cold most of the time and snowy to go out, but I occasionally go hiking or some shit

-not willing to pay for weights or gym, as i am moving soon

-have access to stationary bike, rowing machine, and some piddly weights (3 lb dumbbells and ish)

-primary goal is burning fat, secondary goal is increase power, then mass (i'm a bigger cat)

-have the time for 2 workouts in one day

 

currently i'm working out about once a day for an hour with mostly rowing or burpees and/or pushups, sit ups, and some other slightly aerobic ish just to keep the heart rate up (shadow boxing, etc).

midwestfit.com (though i'm in Cali) has great daily workouts. they are quick and kick ass; creative. i've been getting emails from them for about two weeks and love it! better than usual chest/back/shoulders one day, arms/legs the next, rest, repeat.

How often do you gorillas take a rest week or deload?

I been going 6 days a week for about 4 months straight and I think I need to chill this week.

Been feeling lethargic and just tight all over since Friday night.

Haven't done much but stretch, sleep & eat since then.

I don't really buy all that programmed rest stuff, but rather do it when you feel that your progress is being hindered.

How often for yous fucks?

i work out every day unless i do something pretty active.

some days lighter than others, but bare minimum some cardio push-ups, pull ups.

days i skate a bunch or work really hard im not gonna do much, thats like a day off.

i gotta wear myself out to sleep really terribly.

 

i guess ill only be able to rest when im dead.

ok, so after doing the convict conditioning for a minute....

 

Like:

-it's focus on no equipment

-focus on overall development and not just for looks

-fairly simple system

-more physically challenging than anticipated

-almost entirely focused on strength/ power, so can do a cardio routine the same day

-different exercises.. it's nice to be upside down sometimes

 

Dislike:

-some of the later progressions in a step can get boring (3 sets of 40 vert pulls)

-not the fastest. you can't pump out a set quickly (120 vert pulls at the suggested 6 seconds a piece = 12 minutes of vert pulls, not counting rest)

-some of the earlier steps are almost all form, so it's hard to know if gains are due to better form or actual strength.

 

So i'm sticking with it for now. I'll probably reduce it if someone gave em a gym membership, but i ain't paying for that.
