Pff.. I'll start working out again tomorrow!
Pff.. I'll start working out again tomorrow!
Sing with me a song of Conquest and Fate
The black pillars crack beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts, all alone.
I enjoy skiing and table tennis in terms of sport, but the less said about my rugby skills the better. XD I am good at the aforementioned sports and cricket, and I HATE cross-country running.

I'm gone from SPPF to pursue academics, and I most likely won't be back. Bye!
Taking two weeks off from the gym, hopefully I come back better than ever.
Nintendo Gamer since 1999.
Thinking about going back to the gym in this new year. 2 days a week at the very least. The big problem is my work schedule and the ferry schedule - sometimes I got a double shift and etc.
Last year I was doing the Stronglifts program and made it to like around a 175 Lb Squat until I had to stop because of work getting too busy. This year, I'm doing all the SL exercises (minus Barbell Rows, hated those) but adding in a few more exercises. Dumbbell Waiter Walks, for example. It'll help with my job, carrying heavy platters. Since I actually have really thick legs, and turning out to be good at Squatting, I've been doing squat variants like Jumping Squats (FUN!) and Zercher Squats to focus on my tummy, now that could really use work. I'll go from the bottom up.
What should I do to help build up my back muscles? Any Deadlift variations? I'm excellent at those too.
How can I actually get faster at swimming? My fifty free time is 36 seconds while another boy a year older has 27 seconds. As well as for the others strokes.
Strengthen your legs by squatting. I've had really powerful legs my whole life and they've allowed me to become a great swimmer.
Strong legs mean strong kicks mean faster movements.
Personally, I did raised deadlifts. Put your weights on a smith machine and drop it all the way down, should be at about your ankles. When I'd raise it up I'd do the shrug at the top. The reason behind it is that initial lift from the ground to the ankles puts the most strain on your back and is the weakest of the muscles you work. By eliminating that foot or so I was able to immediately lift 50 lbs more and didn't feel that slight strain from the initial lift anymore.
Right now I do nothing. I severed the tendon in my left index finger last month and I'm having a cyst removed from my right wrist next week as well as a 50 hour a week work schedule. When I heal and find time I'm doing core and cardio. Day 1 - 10 pull ups, 15 push ups, 10 dips, 25 sit ups, 2 minute rest. Repeat until dead. Day 2 - burpees, jump rope, ab ripper x. Day 3 - elliptical or bike (I have bad knees as well lol).

i take mile runs twice a week and for school i run about 2/10 of a mile for gym.
i actually enjoy running, i use to swim but i don't have time to.
i feel good about exercising
i also want to look good in a bikini :X
Me, exercise? Hahaha, no.
I do occasionally run though, it's the only form of exercise I enjoy.
All of my time belongs to ΩR & αS.
The smith machine is only good for incline- and decline bench press. And that's only because a free weight alternative isn't available in all gyms (unless you use dumbbells, which still only works for incline).
I just did 100 push ups with like 30 seconds breaks in about 10 minutes. Feel pretty good

I try to exercise, there are some weeks where i would exercise nearly everyday, but other weeks where i struggle to exercise once or twice a month. However I am still pretty fit thanks to working in the retail industry.
I do light exercise every day with Wii Fit. I focus on the strength training exercises, and after thirty minutes, I'm working up a sweat. I also take a twenty minute walk every day if weather permits.

What's the best way to shave off fat? So far, I've been doing three reps of weighted crunches.
Also, what's an easy way to improve stamina for running? In P.E., I'm always falling behind when running. I don't have time to practice running in my neighborhood or on a treadmill.

I have always exercised to keep myself in shape since I was in Middle School. But the last few years, my exercising has greatly increased (thanks greatly to having a full gym and recreation center I can go to at College since I am a student ). I have mainly been in the weight rooms for the most part. I do sometimes spend time doing cardio by running, getting on the machines (tread mill, etc.), and playing sports there like basketball but not as much as I would like to. This coming semester I intend to continue my focus on my weight training, but put bigger emphasis on cardio and playing sports. Hopefully, my classes wont get too crazy that I have to cut back my cardio again.
While I am at home on breaks, I have exercise equipment like the iron gym, a resistance band, and a pair of dumbbells. I also have Wii Fit even though I haven't been on that in a while. I am always expanding my home exercise equipment when I can. I also do exercises that don't require any equipment.
So overall I have been really good and consistent with my exercising.

Do as many crunches as possible within a certain amount of time. Something like to build tone and definition. Running will help you shave off fat.
There are a few ways to improve stamina for running, you either run, or you run. And weight train as well. Both of those together and you'll increase your stamina in no time.
The only way to lose fat is to consume more energy than you ingest. This is easiest accomplished with compound exercises. Do a lot of squats and deadlifts. The leg muscles are big and therefore consume a lot of energy. Do however remember to train the entire body. A good rep range is 6-10 reps.
The only way to increase stamina for running is to run. The body won't do anything that you don't demand from it. If you don't run, don't expect to get better at it (not counting things like losing 50kg fat, meaning that the mass you have to move is significantly less).
