One time i at the gym, i was doing some shoulder exercises. I had almost finished, but a woman took one of the weights i needed to finish and placed it on the bench she was using.
I thought; " Oh well, i'll just do something else until she's done with it."
She then started to talk to someone, and they talked for almost half an hour.
She didn't even use the damn weight.

You're just wrong.

Even some body building programs use minute long rest periods, and if you're a powerlifter -like myself- you rest as long as you have to in order to get another set.

It's the difference between focusing on strength, and focusing on size, training the CNS vs training the muscle.

Hey losers, I'm planning on going to the gym for the first time later tonight.

What's the etiquette for using equipment? I don't want to piss anyone off on my first day
Is it okay to just wander between machines, using whatever is free?

Do some research as to get into a good routine, and then stick to it. Literally just Google how many days you want to workout a week and then type in gym split. Follow that routine or change the exercises to some that you enjoy more, then you're set!

not to put you on the spot, and not to make it seem like you at all would have to, but if that's the case, (and honestly it is my problem as i have promised myself many times, maybe having outside influence would help?) would you mind sending me a reminder every day randomly if/when you log on?

I will be honest and tell you if i have or have not done it in return. If after 2 times I have not, bitch me out and give up on me. Being FJ I know you wouldn't have any problem telling me to **** off for this request, but can't hurt to ask.

If you can't run a mile in less than 10 minutes you have serious fitness issues.

Like i mean really serious.

Overweight 13 year old boys can do it in under 10 mins.

Easy checks for your fitness/cardio levels.

Run a mile and time yourself. Make sure its a mile. use google maps to measure it if you have to.

more than 10 mins - Seriously bad fitness - probably struggle to even jog
More than 8 mins - pretty unfit
7-8 mins - Ok fitness, not good, not bad, should be better
6-7 mins - acceptable fitness
5 -6 mins - good fitness
4 - 5 mins - really good fitness
4 min mile - extremely good fitness

Ok here's the deal, I go to the gym and use the treadmill every time.

Since you seem to know your stuff I'll ask you. Want to be accurate so here's the details: girl, small build, slim (not toned) but up until now inactive - trying to be healthier.

When I run I usually make it about 2.2 miles in 15/20 minutes... Does that mean my fitness is ****? I'm a little out of breath after but I've got enough energy to do more, and I never hurt the next day. In short, does this mean I'm not pushing myself enough?

That seems fine. Should be content with that, it seems like an ok base to work from. I mean its not an amazing time or anything, but its not a bad one.

Before I really give advice, what do you want to see improve? Such as:
General health and fitness?
Improve fitness? (As in get athletic)
Tone up/lower your body fat?

What do you want to happen from your running bassically.

Thanks for replying.

Basically, I want to get toned up, but in the long term I want to improve general health/fitness. My main goal for motivation is probably a toned stomach. Right now I'll admit there's excess fat there, not a lot, but I notice it. It seems thats where my body fat is concentrated since the rest of me is quite small. Which probably means its going to be harder to lose haha.

I understand I'll have to do exercises like sit ups and things, as well as cardio.

Ok, well a toned stomach is all about low body fat.

You could have the biggest abs in the world but not see a toned stomach (six pack for guys) if you dont have a low body fat.

Its one of the harder things to get tbh.

One thing I wanna say before i give you the proper advice is always warm up before a run/exercise, few stretches, then a gentle jog at like 60-80% of what you jog at for 5 mins, maybe a few dynamic stretches (stretches as you move, like high knees as you run or as you run kick your bum with your heels) if you're in the gym you maybe dont wanna do the dynamic stretches, but just make sure you do the normal stretches and warm up run. Also, set a treadmil to 1-2% incline, this takes some of the pressure off your joints. Warming up is also to try and make sure you dont damage your joints and not pull a muscle and also not tighten up and not be able to perform as well as you can.

Ok, now for your jogging. You seem to be at an alright standard, not too bad. You want to be out of breath when you finish jogging, taking like 30-60 seconds to get your breath back, but not so out of breath you feel light headed etc. Keep up what you are doing and gradually increase the pace a little until you reach a good speed and feel comfortable at, then increase the duration and try for say 3 miles. Jogging is partly aerobic and anaerobic. Anaerobic is about 15-18 times less efficient than aerobic, so is great for losing burning calories.

If you do running outside, a good way of toning up is HIIT (High intensity interval training) bassically like short big burst of energy like sprinting. One thing you can do is sprint for 20 seconds, then walk for 90 seconds. And repeat 4-5 times. As you g et better at it over several weeks/months, gradually increase your sprint time to 30 seconds and walking time to 30-60 seconds. Walking time is bassically to catch your breath again while still moving. It sounds easy, but its hard, but great way of toning up.

wouldnt all fit in one comment, continuing.

You will also want to do "Weights". You're a girl so you dont want big muscle, so you wanna be doing endurance type things, not proper weights.

Consider joining like a pilates class, they're good.

But you'd be best off doing something like a circuit workout than weights.

For circuit training its bassically you do several exercises in a row with no break.So it is cardio as well as endurance training for your muscles and are usual done using your own bodys resistance (like sit ups etc).

Google circuit training workouts for girls and find one you can do and like. They'll be loads.

I gotta get going now so i'll have to leave you, good luck!

Really appreciate all of this, thank you so much. Feels better getting advice from a genuine person as oppose to reading articles on the internet.

Sorry for the trouble, just one more question. In relation to food I am TERRIBLE for under eating, I don't do it on purpose but most days I eat say 800/900 - 1,100, sometimes I hit 1,200 and on those days I'm happy. But usually, the under eating is pretty bad, will this hinder/stop me toning up and such?

If you arent getting enough calories into your system you wont have the energy to carry you through your work out.

I know it sounds counter-intuitive... but you need to eat to lose weight/tone up.

You need to be eating the right things though. Eating a pack of doughnuts to give you energy to work out isnt going to be helpful. You want protein and complex carbs.

Bassically, sugar is a simple carb, it gives your body energy but your body "burns" it all within like 30 mins, then your body has all this excess energy and so stores it as fat since you cant use it. Complex carbs however (Like brown/wholemeal rice/bread, porridge(Oatmeal) and starchy veg/beans/legumes) get digested over several hours and so your body uses it when it needs it and you have the energy for like 5+ hours rather than for 30 mins, much better. Also, it raises your metabolism a little, so its burning calories just by eating them and being alive. You dont wanna eat complex carbs after like 4-5pm though if you can help it.

But yeah, back to your question. You are going to need to eat a little bit more if you are going to start regularly working out. As a girl you dont need to worry about "Mad gains" and stuff with muscle so you dont need massive protein intakes and strict protein heavy diets. Go for about 25% protein 55% carbs 20% fat roughly and you should be good. I cant say how much to eat cos i dont know you but you would wanna eat more than you do. Try and find the balance where you have the energy to workout without eating loads
