Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm pumped and huge!!! Just did a shoulder workout tonight...my new gym (yes another one) has a shoulder press hammer strength machine that holds 8 plates total, and I repped it. 2 sets, 275 lbs on the overhead press. Finished off later with HS machine shrugs, filled it with 10 plates, 2 sets.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm still lifting and doing cardio at least a couple of times a week. I plan to begin doing more.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I had a good exercise session last evening after I got off the computer. I lifted weights and did a little floor work.

I just destroyed my shoulders today for the first time in a long time. My right shoulder bothers me a lot, so I don't normally get to exercise it that much.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Hi guys, I'm pretty new to this board but I thought I'd share a bit about myself.

After 26 years I've finally decided it's time to get in shape. unfortunately my love for fast food and my dislike of exercise took its toll through the last decade of my life. About a month ago I decided enough was enough. I'm exercising every day and dieting... I've gone from 327 to 297 in the last month and am just praying I don't hit a plateau any time soon. Believe it or not even though I've lost 30 pounds I'm still really waiting for the obvious visible differences, but hopefully they'll come in soon.

Plateaus will happen, but there are ways to overcome them.

Re: Fitness Checkin

All right, my new goal is to never skip a leg workout. I hate legs. It's my absolute least favorite workout, and I have a really bad habit of saying, "I don't feel like it today; I'll do legs tomorrow." And then it just never gets done.

I am also going to make myself do at least 20 minutes of cardio every single day.

Awesome! I didn't have quite that much to lose, but I did have a fair amount (100 or so pounds). I wish you the very best!!

If I have any advice, it is don't worry to much about the visible difference! My experience with that was that because I was around my body so much, and the fact that it was changing slowly meant that my mind was adapting to it as I was losing the weight. It sometimes felt like I wasn't losing weight, but I looked at the scale and my weight was dropping. Even though you might not see it initially, as I didn't, the visible signs are going to be there! Don't get discouraged.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I quit my gym membership at 24HF two years ago and decided to get an elliptical mchine, which I use most days of the week. Besides, when I had gym membership, I did mostly cardio stuff anyway. I got tired of other people monopolizing the weight equipment and the dingy locker room and showers. Ialso have dumbells and a fitness "ball"at home, but I would definitely like to try a variety of exercises; that's the only thing I'm missing from my gym days.

I've also been eating more veggies lately (salad for lunch).

Cardio is great for fat burning, but don't forget that its the lean body mass gained from weight bearing exercises that'll be the most beneficial long term. Every pound of lean muscle will increase your metabolism. The calories you burn of with cardio can be quickly re-added, but the lean mass will keep burning long after you get off the elliptical.

I know, I know. It's been easier lately since I've been "training" a friend of mine. I can't in good conscience make him do legs if I don't do them, too.

Always a good incentive. My training partner damns me every time we do them.

Absolutely. He's never worked out a day in his life, so I'm trying to teach him good habits.

He could not wrap his head around how much pain he was in the 2-3 days after his first Leg Day.
