I just wanted to ask, that how many of you go to the gym? Me personally 4 times a week - more of a power building type. How many of you are a gym bro?
Yep been lifting for 30 years and listening to music a whole lot longer lol
5 days a week with a 16/8 fast Mon-fri…just started the fast about a month ago and so far so good. Goal is to be at 15% body fat at 215lbs currently roughly 10lbs from that goal…but I eat whatever I want and drink whiskey so it is taking a little bit longer than it should…but I work out to enjoy life food and booze included lol!
Been going since March, 5 days a week. I want to lose 50 or so pounds.
I’d like to not die alone
You can do it!!! Just keep dedicated, sometimes I’ll have a bad day or I’m extra tired, and the trick is to just take the first step in doing it…either pick up the weight for your next set, or get on a bike, start to jog etc…then once you start going it propels you onward! Stay motivated my friend!!
I’m aiming for one step above “disgusting”
It’s the best I can do
For now, for now;) you got this!
I go to the gym 4 times a week with a 1 hour of cardio and 1.5 hours of strength training. Trying to get more toned rather than bulk up. I was big when i was younger (230lbs at 20-22% body fat) but now looking at hitting (185lbs at 12-14% body fat). Looking to get a 6 pack but love to eat too much to achieve it. Gotten closer in it in the winter but when traveling that all fell apart.
i am 5’ 9.5" tall
Been a power lifter for 20 years. After bouts of sciatic and shoulder pain, I’m now down to 2 hard lifting days per week. I swim at least 1/2 mile, sometimes more, 2 additional days per week.
Just keep going. If your not up to exercising do anything that’s active. Hell just go for a long walk with your favorite headphones. Your going to have some ups and down. Also never ignore any injuries and give yourself proper time to recover.
I feel your pain buddy, two torn rotor cuffs and a hip replacement here means I train a whole lot differently in my 50’s than I did in my 20’s…pre exhaust super/giant sets for me now but the intensity and focus is still on point
Jesus, I’m in and out in 30-40 minutes.
Clearly I’m not doing it right
I doubt I’m doing things right. Every place on the web has conflicting info.
I’m there 30-40 minutes. I’m pondering going back at night and doing 30+ mins of cardio. I really have nothing else to do but though I go, I’m not a fan of the gym.
Yeah its more about waiting for freed up space in my gym. If I go through everything without waiting It would probably be around 30-40 minutes of weight training. Add cardio, if your not all ready active in sports or at your work. Not just for burning calories but overall health.
Looking good Ohmboy!
Cheers buddy 53 in that pic and yeah no more than 1hr in the gym for me…progression/intensity + focus + diet + rest = gains not time spent chatting on FB and posting on insta lol…oh yeah and a bit of cardio
I hate cardio as well so i usually start off with it. Even though it causes my lifts to suffer, my cardio would suffer more if I started out lifting first.
When I cut it’s fasted cardio in the morning, followed by an adjusted calorific deficit diet and weights in the afternoon…cheat day once a week.
Audio wise = Digital sources, DAC’s and razor sharp analytical headphones daily and with a cheat meal of Vinyl, valves once a week lmao
Yeah 40-60 minutes on average with rest times, I usually get 12-19 different excercises in that time… with 3setsof8-10. I use it as my cardio to some degree by keeping breaks short and heart rate up. Plus 16/8 fasting to keep weight down…6’2” 221 as of this morning…looking to break 215lbs by end of June-mid July. I go 5 times a week 6am start time helps keep the crowds away and the weights open!
Shit, that means at 5’7 I’m fat as f***.
I bet if I cut one leg off I’d still weigh more than you. Ugh
Don’t fret, it just takes time and effort…you will get there! I’m actually just now getting back to where I should be after a Achilles rupture 2 years ago…with a couple of months of inactivity and bad diet…I went all the way up to 250lbs at one point…routine helps a lot in staying dedicated…plus set small goals like 1lb a week or 5lbs a week…or extend it out a month with goals of 5-10lbs a month loss. Celebrate the small victories… they keep you motivated to the big victories!
