Gym/working Out

Recommended Posts

... I've never really been fat. Just, lumpy as a child.... and when I was smoking too much pot, I ate too much and weighed like, 130lbs. It was crazy.

 

But, I'm healthier now... and am back to my normal weight. All without working out.

Hahahha, I used to be HUGE. I weighed more in Grade 8 than I do now. It's crazy. I just gained some height, started working out, ate better, and bam. It was pretty crazy.

Haha I weighed more in 8th grade than I do now too ;)

I've been skinny my whole life. I have a really high metabolism and it's so far impossible for me to gain any fat. Last time I tested, I had about 8% BF. I have gained quite a bit of muscle recently, though.

Can you over-exert your muscles?

Yes you can. It's called overtraining. When you work your muscles you should let them get a minimum of 72 hours of rest before training again.

 

An ok split is to do this:

 

Day 1: Back/Biceps/abs

Day 2: Cardio

Day 3: Chest/Triceps/shoulders

Day 4: legs/abs

Day 5: cardio

 

and then start again at day 1.

 

You probably don't wanna work all of your muslces in one session, and the best split is one between pushing (chest, triceps, shoulders) and pulling (back and biceps) though working occassional supersets into your routine can give you some good quick results if used sparingly.

I'm addicted to the gym and running. running for hours, it's the greatest feeling. and pushing yourself beyong where you thought you could go. it's great for health, fun, and for building discipline.

I'll vouch for that ;) .

 

I really haven't had any time to do any exercising lately, but when I do I love to see how far I can go. It's a wonderful challenge.

it's impossible to work all your muscles at once. if you do, you're pretty much wasting time. different muscles heal at different rates. most muscles dont need more than 48 hours rest. your biceps heal the fastest and your ass heals the slowest. your biceps shouldn't need more than 48 hours, max. you can still workout when they are sore.

 

your schedule is arlight, except you wont make much gains with chest/triceps AND shoulders on the same day.

 

i do, typically, not necessarily in this order,

 

back/biceps on the same day,

 

chest/triceps

 

legs ( I can't do my abs at the same time, because my hip flexor always tries to do too much when I do abs and legs on the same day, can't isolate them)

 

shoulders + something else, ( an extra biceps workout, or triceps, or any thing that needs work)

 

I fit abs and cardio in all over the place

i lost 35 lbs in grade 12 when i had mono and almost 6 years later still havent got it all back.

My friend overdosed on morphine and spent a week in the hospital, lost like, twenty lbs, and is still a twig two years later.

The other biggest key (that has not been explicitly mentioned, but implied in the last couple of posts. Do note I haven't read the whole thread) is to make sure to work paired muscles equally.

 

That's all kids

I've been a skinny little kid all my life, pretty much. Especially compared to those neanderthals that have taken gym all through high school so they work out on a near daily basis. Lousy bastards.

 

Next year at university I plan on making use of the gym facilities. I'll sexify myself in time for me to start talking to girls.

i just noticed you said 35. Holy fuck boy, it's a good thing you didn't gain it all back if you could afford to lose that much in the first place.

 

 

 

How'd you get mono?

I lift free weights every couple of days. Pushups and situps as well. All I can really do in my house. Though having lost around 50 pounds in the last 18 months, and still losing weight, I'm not overly concerned about being a fat kid anymore.

i was all hard core into working out, and I eventually got decently muscled, but then a combination of things (was in a car accident, got a girlfriend, and started going back to school) pretty much caused my 6 day a week habit to dwindle to 3 at best....i think i've lost about 15-20 lbs of muscle since summer. I hate being skinny.

Post some pics. You probably just think you're skinny but everyone that looks at you probably thinks "He's ripped!"

the 3 most important things are diet, sleep and form. if you don't do those things right, don't even bother workin out.

This is the only pic I have of myself without a shirt on. My pecs and traps are pretty nice in my humble opinion, but my arms could use a bit more mass.

 

Edit: Also, does anyone have any tips for getting over my bench plateau? I've been stuck at the same max for waaaay too long now.

You know Owen, you look older than you are, that's a compliment, I think

That's definately a compliment, and a surprising one, as I often feel like I look younger, as I have a very hard time growing facial hair. Damn smooth skin.

 

Edit: It's actually quite embarassing. I only shave like, every 3-4 days, and that's just to remove the 13-year-old stlye moustach...
