    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Zeltrax, to lose weight it's more important to burn more energy rather than eat less food. Never skip meals, it actually makes metabolising your food a lot harder. (As an added personal thing I think it's also better for your body to eat your meals at the right time)

    If walking doesn't burn enough energy; go jogging a little. Another really good cardiovascular excercise is jumping rope, it excercises all the muscles in your body, and burns fat nicely. It doens't matter if you can only do a few; just build up 5 extra jumps a day and then break them down into sets of 100 and you'll be fit in no time.

    But good job with the weight loss so far Make sure you keep at it!

    of course I do the push-ups... I mean, what's the point of burpees without the push-ups?

    which brings me to the question. What should hurt/ache when you do pushups properly? given your body is not used to it and some muscle should ache in the beginning, right? So what part should ache so I know I'm doing the pushups right.

    so it's 6kg in 3 months, around 2kg per month. Not sure if I'm accurate.
    I eat breakfast at 10, skipped lunch(sometimes I have a little bread for snack) and have a light dinner.
    Of course, walk home every weekday for 75 minutes or so.
    So far so good but it's kindda slow but I blame myself for getting tempt occasionally and eating what I'm not suppose to.
    Cooking by myself helps alot.
    I believe that's very good improvement, Zeltrax!! That's great! If your aim is not for athletic development or whatever like these insane guys over here (BLAI), that routine sounds just fine, especially that you're cooking for yourself, and losing 2kg per month is okay. Just keep at it and eventually you'll get the habit, knowing how much to consume for yourself, knowing how much activity to burn what you've consumed, etc. etc. It takes time to really know your body.

    In about 6 months time of continuing what you're doing (walking/ light exercise/ proper diet) you'll eventually reach the stalemate. Something to the likes of: your body has accustomed so much to your routine that you'll have to up the ante. So you'll adjust again.

    It's easy to shed fat when you have a lot to shed. But as you become leaner, it gets harder and harder to lose just even half a kilogram. But that's far off from where you're at, I guess.

    So keep up the good work.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    A little update, milestone?

    7months ago I posted here saying ill be 80kg in 6 months but that didn't happen.
    Instead, I am now 95kg and halfway there, my original weight was 110
    I'm going to keep walking for one hour every weekday and stop when my holidays over here starts.
    During the holidays, I will go running on every odd day.
    Of course, with good meal planning too.



    Oh and I stopped eating McDonalds for 6months.
    Unbelievable.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    I wonder what's the best way to gain weight. I am 180 cm and 52 kg. I should be at least 60 kg. I started eating more recently, but... I lost weight. I used to be 55 kg. So I was thinking about playing a sport, still can't decide which one will be good for me.

    Zeltrax, congratulations on your achievement! Keep it up!

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Tennis is a great sport for building muscles while burning fat. If you want to gain weight it's the best way to go.
    You're not paid to think;

    so shut up and do your job.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    swimming/ running is a type of cardiovascular exercises. They simply burn calories and nothing else (aside from regulating blood sugar and adjusting your heart rates). In your case I wouldn't go for these types of exercises alone . The logical solution for gaining weight is increasing your calorie intake while burning less.

    But if you like, wanna gain weight but not look flabby= you better do some protein shakes or something. I wouldn't really know, because I never, in my entire life, wished to gain weight. >.>

    Since losing my job and therefore staying home and playing couch potato, I had gained weight again and so I am back to the road of dieting. gah.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    One of the easier places to control weight is diet. So normal excercise is fine, just eat a little more meat and a little less carbs. And then the weight will probably pile on pretty quickly.

    But I guess the other way is to build muscle, which is probably a better idea. Hit the gyms, maybe?

    (Just realised Blai already said this. I had no idea tennis made you stronger.)

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    I just wanna get the normal amount of exercise and strengthen up a bit and also stop being so skinny. I wanna be healthy. It's just that I don't know what "normal exercise" is. xD

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    eat a lot of dairy products, cakes, ice creams, and fruits with high calories like mangoes, bananas, coconut milks, fatty fish like tuna, salmon, some shrimps, etc. You have the same problem as my friend and she consulted a nutritionist. She's still a bit skinny now but she looks a lot better now that she's gained a bit of weight and looked a bit more er... meatier. hehe.

    The problem with being too skinny is just that you're eating way less calories than what your body is burning. You just need to load up, is all.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Thanks, baboysai, that helps a lot (physically and mentally).

    I was thinking of consulting with a nutritionist. I'm trying to eat some more and different food these days and I'll see how it goes.

    And I'll be happy happy!

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Page two? BLASPHEMY! REVIVAL INC.


    Just thought I'd share my current re-made work-out schedule, hoping I could get some tips or advices regarding exercises or the schedule itself.


    Mon: Biceps, Abd
    Tue: Pecs (Chest), Triceps
    Wed: Bike 45mins (usually around 25km or so)
    Thu: Back, Shoulders
    Fri: Legs, Free (choose whatever muscle-group I feel like)
    Sat: Bike 45mins (or a workout similar to -this-
    Sun: Rest

    I do five exercises on Abd, Pecs, Back & Legs and I do four exercises on Biceps, Triceps & Shoulders (as the former four are the larger groups and latter three the smaller). I do four sets of ten, giving me forty repetitions per exercise. I normally use one or two machine-exercises and two to four that requires nothing but dumbbells. Reason why I have two days of lifting in a row is because I activate different body-parts (muscle-groups) as my main groups to give them rest between. Even though I'm well aware that I stress my pecs when I use tight-grip machine bench press and that I stress my biceps when I do a wide grip bench press the day after.


    As an example of a muscle-group work-out, Chest:
    Flat (wide grip) bench press 55kg x10/4
    Straight arm dumbbell pullovers 16kg x10/4
    Dumbbell flyes 8kg x10/4
    Cable Crossovers 10kg x10/4
    Butterfly 45kg x10/4

    ---

    Anyway, anyone got some tips or advices for exercises I should try or comments on the current "schedule"?
    You're not paid to think;
    A mindless worker is a happy worker,
    so shut up and do your job.

    >.> Being in the cold for two months has caused me to gain 4 kilos! That's about 10 friggin' pounds!

    That's why I'm out to diet and workout again. >.< You know also when you have a physical job and you suddenly quit it and become a couch potato? That gets you really fat in three days.
