When Was The Last Time You Worked Out At The Gym
 
I work out about 3-4 times a week to stay healthy, active, and in shape. As far as exercise i do pushups, situps, pull ups, running, weight lifting, and boxing classes.

What areas are you trying to work out ladies? If you need tips and motivation just ask we're here to help. :wub:

If you go to the gym what type of work out plan are you on? ;)

Guys how much can you bench? :happy0180: (bragging rights)

Post pictures if you have any aswell. So many people in America today that's out of shape these days. I feel if you try to exercise and watch your calories what you eat we all can be healthy and happy.

For the last couple weeks i've seen women and a few the guys talking about it so thought i make a place to call home to get help and talk about it. :)

One thing about people who haven't worked out for years they lose focus and determination easily. My friends sister she's not exactly the biggest or thinnest girl she don't got patience and prefer having a friend go to the gym with her to make it comfortable so she don't feel people looking or laughing at her. It can be a big issue mentally she stopped working out now and just happy being her.

I go to the gym every other day for weights, and run 5-7 miles on my off days. Also I never eat fast food, soda, or any junk food at all.

Soda is one of the leading causes for obesity. :thumbdown:

I agree 100%...I mean I didn't just do the 90 days and the weight flew off...NO, did I lose about 20 pounds, yeah but I personally was still unhappy with myself.

Focus and just doing it everyday was hard. I made the mistake thinking this has to be easier than insanity etc. and I was dead wrong lol

My advice to any starters would be to first, map out the diet they give you. (I didn't and I paid for it) and secondly, just stay with it and don't get discouraged...if someone like me that *use to eat fast food almost every other day and cokes throughout the day go to quit drinking soda etc and lose 40 pounds, I believe anyone can do it :thumbup:

I actually just got back to the gym tonight after a year and a half break and it felt amazing. I pretty much just do weights and some cardio thrown in. Just enough cardio to keep the fat down and heart in shape. Before I quit going I would bench 405 for reps and max at 495. I'm a bigger guy at 6'5" 300lbs (normally around 260) but it's gonna be a while before I'm lifting like that again. Tonight just did light weight for reps to get everything going again.

It's all about your heart, focus, and set goals for yourself. Take things one day at a time.

One of the worst thing i've seen is people paying 100's for a gym membership and never go make excuses why you can't make it. :facepalm: I actually know people who's done this too.

Run my 6 miles a day, hit the bench, do a few lat pulldowns, some dips/pullups and im usually done. I usually like doing exercises that work multiple muscles so that I dont have to stay in there as long. I do hit the gym twice a day 5 or 6 days a week. Im a small guy @ 5'10" 195lbs. so my bench press rep is normally 3 sets of 10 reps @ 225. My max that I have been willing to try without a spotter was 2 reps of 320. The second rep was because I was feeling myself ( I damn near died ).

Never ever try to be hercules. Leave it to the professionals.

Thanks man. Felt good to get back. The gym used to be my second home lol I could easily spend 4 hours a night there when I was in my prime. Couldnt stand missing the gym for anything. Ive been meaning to get back for a while. Only thing I'm not looking forward to is getting back on my diet. Dozens of eggs, oatmeal, fish, chicken, yams, brown rice, broccoli, spinach.......yum lol

If anybody needs diet advice feel free to ask. I spent about a year researching and designing and refining my diet to suit my needs at any given time. There really is a science behind it if you want to go hardcore. Its amazing what different foods can do for you when you eat them at different times in different amounts etc.
