Newbie (1/14)



  1. Now I'm experimentating a bit with calysthenics - namely, the "Naked Warrior" routine by Tsatsouline. I definitely liked his suggestions to get more of your strength, but I'm still confused a bit with the english, so I dont really know if I' m doing fine. Should have done about 30 push ups (inclined 45 degrees, groups of five) and 20 one legged stand ups from a very low platform. Tomorrow it's back to gym anyway.
  2. A relax day - legs hurt a bit after yesterday, so I just had a stretching and swimming day. I swim terribly, got to get it better before I begin work. Tomorrow will be pecs day, saturday gym might already be closed, so I have to switch to another one.
  3. Cardio day! Gave myself a treat for a good day's work- and because the temperature in my gym was almost 36 degrees, which is way beyond anything I have tried. Had a vegan gyros for my evening meal Went back to 5 meals/day, and bouth all the necessary ingredients for a more basic, all around healthier diet -mostly tofu, tempeh, seitan and rice milk with calcium. Had to walk an hour with my gyms stuff and two week's worth of food for an hour to get them... I'm actually content of myself today. My bf calculator already is around 18,5%, but it could be a simple mistake for having drank loads of water today (more tan 2 liters, 1 and a half in gym alone). I will still try to cut to 16 at least without counting calories and macronutrients overall. My habit is now: And, L&G got me curious about the whole juice fasting. Sadly, my parents would take me to a hospital by the third hour, and when I'lll begin my job (on a civilian ship) I'll be glad if they have some vegan stuff available.
  4. Okay, here we go for a first weight lifting day. In case anyone forgot, I have been spending a 100% non-active and anti-fitness life up to February, that's the reason of the bad stats And, having missed a good month of training, I took about 10-15 kg less than what I did before stopping. As for today: Hopefully getting back to the old weights in a week or two, today actually didnt feel difficult. Except for the cardio. With such a heat it's like trying to breathe fire after a minute or two... As for the diet, have to go and buy a supply of tofu tomorrow. By then I'll be counting calories and carbs/prot/fats again. Today I just had to manage with what I had around, mostly bean soup and nuts, and vegan biscuits as a treat for a first day of training

  6. Damn L&G, I get lazy for a month and see you making such a feat just as coming back! Thread saved in favourites, the concept seems intriguing.
  7. Going to be posting here everyday fro two months at least, then I'll begin working on a ship, and I'll probably will only be able to lurk once a week, and train through calysthenics. More than happy to hear your suggestions about a no weights strength training, obviously! As for today, I just came back into the gym, and there were about 35 degrees, so I merely had some cardio to get my body to understand it was back to training. 07/07/08 45 minutes cyclette - 13 km, 300+ calories. Oh, and I'm 19 now - growing old by the minute.
  8. As the topic said, I was missing from here due to my exams since a month or more. Going to be back at writing my journal and lurking everywhere else
  9. Still having a sloppy internet, but still doing cardio and weights properly! But my legs hurt still from the squats, I must ponder whether to lower the weight or not for next time. 18/04: Cardio: 30 mins step machine 8/12 19/04 12 mins HIIT treadmill 5 mins elliptical Weights: Bench Press : 5x5 40 kg. I can surely add to the weight, slowly. Inclined DB Bench Press: 4x8 (1xsixteen, 1x14 kg per hand, 2x12 Verticali 4x4 Have to look into my loss of strength in the inclined bench press, when the standard one was easier to do, and with more weight.
  10. Nice day. I managed both a good weight lifting and a somewhat decent cardio - happy with the program. As of yesterday, my BF percentual is sixteen, dropping 2 percent from about two or three weeks ago. Weights unchanged, so I am either measuring badly or gaining LBM - we will see with the time. Still using an accu measure still, and the thing is intuitive as they come. Squats: 5x5, 70 kg Leg Presses: 4x8 [3x110kg, 1x100kg] Lunges: 4x8 [2x16kg per hand, 2x14kg per hand] Hindu Squats [still have to do] Last time: squats sixty kg 5x5 Leg Press 2x8 100kg 2x8 90 kg Lunges 2x8xleg sixteen kg per hand; 2x8 x14kg Diet: 2300 calories Water: 1/2 liter in the morning 1/2 liter green tea afternoon 1 liter training a couple of glasses during meals.
  11. After a week of relax from physical activities its always nice to return to the gym! Cardio: 35 mins of step machine, 475 calories, diff 7/12 Weights: Deadlift 5x X 5 [40 kg] Bent Over Rows 4x8 [18kg] Lat Pulldowns 4x8 [40-45 kg] Seated Row 4x8 [30-35 kg] The lat pulldowns were done with a closer grip this time, varying a bit the ankles. The 5 kgs less were because last time I was having a bad form, and I always prefer going easy on the back. This said, I still feel I can add weight to my deadlift, so I plan on going to 100lbs for next time! As for my diet, I had to extimate today, since I had to eat 4 of my meals outside. Still, it was mostly healthy as it gets and I could tell the caloric content..
  12. 09/04/08 Hardest Cardio Training EVER! I am mighty satisfied with myself; at the end I was sweating like theres no tomorrow and my glasses were impossible to see throughfor the heat and drops of sweat falling down. And my face was ridiculously red. Might have been fun for people watching me. I definitely am using the step machine only for weight training days, and the treadmill for other days. Training: Cardio: 5 mins warmup step machine 30 mins treadmill (hill program) diff. 7/12 12 mins HIIT treadmill diff 9/12 Diet Drinks: 1/2 liter of water in the morning 1 liter of green tea at 2 pm 1/2 liter water as training plus three or four glasses during meals. Eaten: 07.00: Soy Milk 200 mL Musli "Basis" 50 grams Musli "Fruit" 100 grams 11: 100 grams seeds 14:Whole Rice 70 grams 100 grams beans 17: Seitan 100grams Veggies mixed 35 grams almonds 19: Seitan 100 grams Fruit mixed veggies total: 2280 calories, 253 carbs, 84 fats, 140 prot.
  13. Oh, and you are right. I have the simulations for my final exams, so I will spend about 18 hours in 3 days being thoroughly examined. Since I have to study for the third, this week might not be exceptional for my fitness. BTW, today I had calysthenics done, mostly since I slept the whole afternoon after math. I reached my goal of 100 hindu squats without stopping! Today: 3x10 standard pushups 1x100 hindu squats 2x10 hindu pushups
  14. Hello everybody! Hope you didnt miss me too much. My ISP had some problems and didnt let me connect for the whole week. This is what I wrote offline: 03/04 cardio: 35 mins step weights: squats sixty kg 5x5 Leg Press 2x8 100kg 2x8 90 kg Lunges 2x8xleg sixteen kg per hand; 2x8 x14kg 04/04 Cardio: 20 minutes resistance training at school; got a 10/10 as being in the last five remaining! Used to have really under average grades up to now, and my teacher hates me. It was hella satisfaction. 05/04 Cardio: 30 mins step Weights: Bench Press : 5x5 35 kg. Good form, tried doing slower reps and I surely felt they were working better. Inclined DB Bench Press: 4x8 sixteen, 14 kg per hand Verticali 4x4 better done. 07/04 Cardio: 30 mins step Weights: Deadlift: 30 kg 5x5 (my first kinda serous deadlifts! I like my form much better now, I think I can easily add 5-10 kg next time) Bent Over Rows 4x8 (14-16 kg) (I believed form was good, my trainer didnt. I try to be as careful as I get on back exercises) Lat Pulldowns 4x8 (40 kg) Seated Row 4x8 (40 kg)
  15. I ll admit that I have dicked around with the weights today - but it was my first deadlifts,and I didnt want t break my back right at first try. I did a lot of reps with little with no weight in the two exercises that were new to me. It was fun as hell, but I fell down sleeping as soon as I ate and went home.. poor my grades. Cardio: 30 mins of step machine, 400 calories, diff 7/12 Weights: Deadlift 5x X [about 12 I think, weight was only 20 kgs] Bent Over Rows 4x8 [16kg] Lat Pulldowns 3x8 [45 kg] Seated Row 4x8 [30 kg, difficult to keep arm right]
