Hey guys, share your workout schedules (details!) and your goals!
I want to look cute in a t shirt,,,my goal
I want to lose 20kg.
But you need to write what you actually do
I don't really have an exercise schedule per say. Most of the time when I'm bored, I'll just start doing crunches, pushups and other stretches to keep myself in shape for bboyin'. I live next door to an elementary school so I'll go there and shoot hoops for a while. Also yard work really helps develop my arms. Being a distant runner, I also occasionally run around the lake behind my house when I have the time.
I workout 3-5 times a week.
The full workout is:
10 mins warmup (stairclimber)
40 mins weights - varies: day 1 is biceps, back and shoulders, day 2 is triceps, chest and legs
10 mins abs - ab biking, russian twists, assorted crunches, leg lifts
10 mins stretching
20-60 minutes cardio depending on my schedule (usually either 30 or 40 mins) (elliptical machine or recumbent bike)
Quite often I don't have time for all of this, so I'll either cut down on the cardio or abbreviate the weights portion.
I don't have any goals really - I workout because I enjoy it and have friends at my gym who I enjoy exercising with.
weight training 5 x week with a personal trainer
cardio 2xweek(could be more but I'm trying to gain weight)
Max Effort Lower;
Squat/Deadlift variations for a 1-5 RM
SLDL/Romanian DL/Good Morning
Dynamic Effort Upper
Speed Bench with bands/chains or straight weight for 3 week cycles
upper back work
Dynamic effort Lower
Box sqauts with bands/chains or straight weight for 9 week cycles
Max Effort Bench
Bench press variations for 1-5RM
elbow flexion work
Goals, total 2300 in total elite 275 class. So I'm looking to put on atleast 50lbs
Mr. snakey starts his day with a morning work out in his jungle gym doing push ups. He then will do 5 sets of shoulder presses with his barbells. His cool down and rest period are midday to night time. He takes Flinstones vitamins 3 times a day and Peanut M&M's to get the fuel he needs and strength to lift the heavy weight.
Currently, I do 70-90 minutes of cardio 6-7 days a week. I divide my time between:
Reclining Stationary Bike
Upright Stationary Bike
Right now I'm in the process of slowly converting over to treadmill entirely because I will eventually just be jogging because I won't have a gym in Europe, where I will be for 2 months.
In the fall, I will convert to 45 minutes of cardio of one type followed by free weights, 3 sets of 15 rep:
Reverse Bench Press or Bicep Curles
I don't do much with my lower body interms of weights but I know I need to add squats at some point because my booty is pretty damn flat. The only problem is the I don't want to spend the additional time. I already commit about 2 hours a day to the gym when I factor in workout, shower, and drive time, which is a little much. However, I always find the workout to be very satisfying; it really stablizes my mood and improves my sense of well being.
Oh yeah, I also do 100 regular crunches and 50 external oblique cruches on both sides for a total of 200 . . . although I still have a gut :redface:
5-10 min stretching
30 min cardio - usually elliptical
20-30 min lifting weights
10 min ab work or boxing work
10 min shower + change
Repeat 3 or 4 times/week.
I do it usually during my mid day break with all the gym regulars. It's a social thing more than anything. I like that tired alert feeling afterwards too.
I reduced it to three days a week:
Mon - legs, abs
Wed - chest, triceps and shoulders
Fri - back, biceps and shoulders
With an explanation -- I divide shoulders into pressing and pulling movements, so the main shoulder pressing exercises go on Wednesday, the pulling ones like shrugs, upright rows, rear delt flies go on Friday.
I ride to work 9 miles each way in about 45 minutes. So, I gym 3 times a week:
45 minute ride back from work to the Gym
10 minute jog on treadmill
20 minutes on the x-trainer
2 songs worth of rowing.
I'm not really interested in muscles at the moment, just losing weight.
On Monday, Wednesday, Friday (early a.m. all three days), and on Saturday afternoon, I'm at the gym 75 minutes. Half of that is cardio (elliptical and treadmil, totalling 2.5 miles; half is weight-training, alternating workouts on back/biceps; legs/shoulders; and chest/triceps. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday (early a.m.), I spend 20 minutes on the Nordic Trak, with the arm and leg settings both on high. Just about every evening, after work or after dinner, I also take a brisk, 2-mile, half-hour walk. I cycle on and off creatine.
At over 40 years of age, 5'7", 135 lbs., 12-percent body fat, 29" waist, 37" chest, my goal is maintenance. I can still wear clothes I've owned for 20 years.
But here's the kicker: when I look back at what it took to keep in the shape I'm in now when I was in my 20's, it was a walk in the park by comparison. I could get away with two visits to the gym each week, and a fraction of the cardio. Sheesh, that old Lewis Carroll line about having to do all the running you can just to stay in the same place never seemed more spot-on than it does now.
I slice a banana in half, and place it in a bowl. I scoop out three scoops of vanilla ice cream, and place them between the banana slices. Then, I cover it with chocolate syrup. Feel the burn. ooooo
I am 6'2", and I weigh 165lbs. I work very hard at my job, and don't get fat. (eats another spoon of the ice cream) ooooooo Feel the burn.
I'm sure half the men and most of the women are cursing you as they read that post :biggrin1: :biggrin1: :biggrin1: Good for you I used to have the same type of metabolism until my thyroid went whacky.
Well, I have a 32" waist too. hahaha Plus, I will be 47 in a couple of months. (Takes another bite.) oooo I feel the burn. I feel pumped. What a workout.
Six days a week at 6am we run 3 kilometers to the beach, swim 1 kilometer and run back home. Then it's off to work. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we go to the gym and work out with weights after work. For me having a workout buddy is a big advantage because you can't jam out.
I eat mostly carbs in the morning and protein late in the day. I don't eat anything after 8pm.
I am 6 feet 185 lbs and my body fat is about 8 or 9 percent normally. I got a little fat this winter and am working back down.
I swim 2500 meters (mile and a half) 3 or 4 x week. (that takes just a little over an hour each time.) Weights and core work every other day or so. I used to do the separate-day-thing to concentrate on certain body parts (arms, chest etc.) Now I just go and hit as many machines as I feel like in whatever order I feel like. I'd usually rather be swimming because it is good all over but the trainer I see at the gym yells at me to get upstairs and do weights too. And you kind of have to do what she says or she'll keep busting your balls. I eat what I want including oatmeal cookies, chocolate and blueberry muffins. 5' 10, 170 lbs, nearly 32 waist (again). It's a good life.
You know when you asked me how long it takes me to swim 3 miles? I said over an hour, however thanks to the metric system that would be 3 km, and usually i only do one and half km, so sorry for the confusion, I was wondering why on earth you never responded, hehehehe I am sure you must have thought i was flipping bullshitting you HA HAHAHA:biggrin1:
