    If you have one.

    I had one but I kinda stopped for a week or so because I got sick, then lazy lol. I'd really love to get in shape, as I've never really been "fit".

    Also out of curiosity, for those who went from average (or very unfit/fat/etc.) to fit, how long did it take for other people to see significant results/change? How hard did you work for it?

    I hit the snooze button on the alarm. It goes off again. I get up and turn off the alarm. I get ready for work. That's my workout.

    I try (emphasis on try) to maintain a 3-on / 1-off routine, but it's difficult when I have to travel for work.

    I also attempt to get around 20-30 minutes of some cardio exercise every day around lunchtime before I eat anything.

    My weightlifting splits like so:

    Day 1 - Pectorals, triceps, deltoids, calves, abs
    Day 2 - Legs, light delts, abs
    Day 3 - Back (lots of muscles), biceps, light delts, light calves, abs

    I had a trainer once tell me that it's almost impossible to overtrain your shoulders, calves, and abdominals...so far, he's been right, so I hit them every session at least once.

    Composition and timing of your sets depends entirely on your goals for lifting. I'd recommend getting at least three (and ideally six) one-hour professional training sessions to let them discuss your goals and set you on a program.

    I'm not able to pay for a gym membership right now. However, I am doing pushups crunches and jogging 4 days a week. It seems to be paying off as i'm starting to see some results after about a month.

    I had a question. I have problems with my neck. I was wondering if any of you have the ab rocket. And does it really help support your neck. I mean does it feel comfortable when using it. I'ved heard mixed reviews on the product.

    I've been a lazy ass lately, but it's usually 30 minutes on just about every machine when I go to the gym. There's never anyone there, so I can constantly be on the move and not stop.

    I start off by lifting my head off the pillow a few times, followed by a walk to the bathroom and then sleep again for about an hour I do that for about 3 reps then take a break.

    For the past 8 weeks, I've been doing this program: HOW TO GET SIX PACK ABS IN 16 WEEKS - Six Pack Abs Workout Routine

    I found out about this site through LPSG and it's been the best thing I've done in a long time. I'm halfway through the 16 week program and the changes to my body have been amazing. Everything you need is on the website. You just have to be diligent and follow the routines. He has weekly videos of what each week should look like. You'll want to do one of the dynamic warm-ups before each routine. Challenge yourself and try it. You will be amazed with the results.

    If only you lived closer, so that I could wipe you off the court and send you crying to mommy :tongue:

    When I stopped playing semi-pro tennis, I could finally bulk up a bit. I did two months of a basic routine, consisting of 12 multi-joing exercises, then another two months of isolation exercises. I'd then take two weeks off and then restart the cycle. I get my cardio mostly from sports, but I jog now and then.

    This is my basic routine:

    Day 1
    Upright rows - Traps, forearms, delts.
    Chin ups - Biceps and lats.
    Stiff-legged Deadlifts - Hams.

    Day 2
    Bench Press - Pecs and triceps.
    Donkey Toe Raises - calves.

    Day 3
    Squats - Glutes and quads, but also strengthen the lower back.

    Day 4
    Off

    I do one body part a day... Heavy. That way when I get back to that body part it's had MORE than enough time to rest so I don't over train the muscle group.

    Day 1- Chest
    Day 2- Legs
    Day 3- Shoulders
    Day 4- Arms
    Day 5- Back
    Day 6- Rest or start over :)

    **toss in abs and cardio on any day you wish...

    ***ALWAYS separate Shoulders and chest and Shoulders and Back. Shoulders are the most over trained muscle we have because we use them on both Chest and Back Days...

    ****Always eat/drink some protein before a workout and within 30 min after a workout to keep muscles from protein depletion. If you do not have enough protein in the body, muscles will start pulling from within muscle fibers to repair.

    This is what works for me...everyone is different in the way their body responds and grows. Also, having an exercise physiology degree and a Neuromuscular therapy degree helps too. :)

    GET MASSAGES!!!! Massage REALLY REALLY Helps when training!!! **and pays my bills if you come to me for it!** :)

    I work my punching bag for 1-2 hours a day and do 100 crunches after that, then 100 more before I shower and go to bed. When working the punching bag, I move all around the bag instead of just standing in one spot. It really helps foot work, balance, and cardio. I also ride my mountain bike atleast once a week, usually 5-10 miles.

    I use to treat myself to a deep tissue massage once a week when I was doing heavy free weights.
    It is the best for getting rid of knotted muscles.
    The masseuse I use to use was a tall muscular lad who did house calls.
    What I adored about this lad was the fact that his hands were freakishly strong so he didn't have to lean into my quads or gluts with the point of his elbow.
    I had to fire him after he started leaving XXX + rated porn in my letter box and sending highly descriptive texts.
