I need some genuine help (it's not dire, but help would still be appreciated)...
I've been working out consistently for the past 6 or 7 months now, but I haven't noticed MUCH of a difference. I'm beginning to understand the reason; it's not that I overeat or have an unhealthy diet in general, but rather, it's the fact that I stay inside most of the time. I'm your typical otaku/gamer, but I don't stay inside for the reasons most would. Assuming none of you give a shit about why I stay inside, I'll just get to the point:
My running routine has me burning approximately 500-600 calories per workout, and I do it 3 times per week. I alternate that with my strength-training routine, which focuses mostly on bodyweight exercises such as curl-ups, push-ups, squats, etc. I'd say, working out alone, I burn about 2000 calories per week. That, combined with my decent diet, has been allowing me to lose about a pound every two weeks. My problem is that running is starting to become boring as fuck, and strength-training has been boring as fuck ever since I started it. I've always enjoyed sports, and figured they would be a good way to burn MANY more calories per week than I do now... but I don't know where to start. I prefer volleyball, racquetball, tennis, and kickball, amongst others, but I have no idea where I should go to start playing them outside of school. I'm 17 with no car, and my parents have no interest in doing sports with me... so where do I begin? Where can I find fun groups to play volleyball or tennis or whatever with? Or, better yet, are there any substitutes to sports? DDR? Jump rope? etc.
tl;dr I need help finding shit to do to burn calories
also, sorry about the giant walls of text

You could start an Ultimate Frisbee league in your area. It might cost a bit of money to ensure you have a field for each match, but you could figure it out and everyone can pay to play (that's how my league does it).

You could also try HIIT, with the basic way of doing this being to just alternate between sprints and walking/rest. If you're interested, here's the plan I'm currently using:


I just started doing this and it is quick and sufficiently entertaining (I don't get bored while running at all). You could hypothetically use this for anything else, however (cycling and jump rope come to mind).

Pic related, it's what you need to know for the plan. There's more with the link, though.

That actually seems pretty fun. I still want to run moderate pace like I have been doing, to the point that I can at least run for some 45 minutes or so without rest (I can do about 30-35 minutes now), but I may take up this program. Read the article, and it seems pretty appealing to me. Do you know, if by chance, anything in particular that I can do for HIIT? I was thinking of shadow boxing, since it doesn't stress my legs as much as other workouts would (seeing as how I'll still be running on my off-days), but any recommendations would help
User avatar #10938 to #10930 - thisismyhandle ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
You could definitely try shadow boxing (I've never done it for HIIT). I can't think of much else, though. Exercises involving legs take more than ones revolving around arms, so running/cycling/elliptical/etc. are typically what people use (it's the same reason that legs are used for general cardio, as it is easier to get your heart rate up than with arms). If you want to be able to continue your distance running, HIIT may not be the best choice of exercise to do along with it.

Eh, there's a big problem with sports when you're 17. If you're really, really good, you could join a junior A team or something. If you can't, there's really just beer leagues.
User avatar #10908 to #10907 - jvizzlez (08/10/2013) [-]
I never really meant anything competitive, just something that can get me out of the house more often. My neighborhood never has anyone playing any sports, and even if they did, I probably wouldn't be seen playing with them anyway mainly because they're all white trash .
So, rewording a little bit... is there anything that can get me out of the house more often? If I had my own vehicle, house, etc., you can bet your ass I'd be out every day, but until then... I'm just kind of stuck here.
User avatar #10909 to #10908 - teoberry (08/10/2013) [-]
Hmm. You could try refereeing. Although I can only speak for basketball, it's just like being on the court. You run up and down, stop for a bit, and keep going. That's prolly not enough tho
User avatar #10910 to #10909 - jvizzlez (08/10/2013) [-]
Never really cared for basketball, but thanks for the help anyways
Perhaps I'll keep with my current routine, and just be patient with it. I've been at a consistent 25% BMI for the past 7 years; healthy, but not really... you know... HEALTHY healthy. Since I'm not morbidly obese and dying, I can just take it patient for the next year or two... I'm losing weight at a decent enough pace as it is, and if I pushed myself any harder, I'd probably become too fatigued to want to keep going.

running is still fucking boring though
User avatar #10911 to #10910 - teoberry (08/10/2013) [-]
Then challenge yourself. Try sprints with jogs inbetween or something
#10912 to #10911 - anonymous (08/10/2013) [-]
too lazy to login
kind of misworded again... by boring, I mean the payoff isn't as much as I hope for. I get all sweaty and shitted out by the end of the workout, but all I'm doing is just running. Adding sprints and whatnot would change up from just casual running, but it would still make it harder... something I don't enjoy too much nowadays (going through the "OH GOD THIS IS TERRIBLE WHY DID I START RUNNING" phase every time I run doesn't help).
I suppose another substitute, or, something I'm looking for, is something that's light work. Something that may work up a sweat and get my heart beating a little, but not to where I'm literally in pain at the end of it. Anything that can increase my general exercise levels, but doesn't tire me out THAT much. Again, if I lived anywhere else I'd be out taking daily walks/jogs in a heartbeat, but with my current condition (overprotective parents, shitty neighborhood, etc.), there isn't much for me to do.

Here's my current plan for trying to lose weight and still maintain muscle (or at least tone):

6 days/week

2. Chest/Triceps + Running (distance, probably starting at 1-2 miles each time)
4. Back/Biceps + Running
6. Shoulders/Legs + Running

Is there anything I'm missing that could improve the plan?
#10921 to #10905 - flyhawk (08/10/2013) [-]
Personally I'd mix up all the running as that will get boring quickly so do like rowing or cycling or something along those lines every now and again to mix things up

I need some help with motivation I like to over eat and also I like to skip meals I know that makes you gain weight but I can't stop. Also I can't afford the gym anymore so what are some free or cheap workouts?
User avatar #10915 to #10904 - daryldixon (08/10/2013) [-]
running is a free and easy workout, sit ups pull ups curl ups etc.

I'm a straight girl so that's not really motivation and thanks I should have thought of that I feel stupid now but I think I will do that

start with zero calorie it is still bad for you but going cold turkey will be really bad. Also try something like mio fit and juice but nothing with too much sugar.

User avatar #10903 to #10894 - peaceloveowls (08/09/2013) [-]
I have a whole workout plan book mainly you pick what you want to work on that day (arms, back, legs etc.) do a workout relating to that (weights, squats, 3 sets of 15) then 30-1 hr of cardio. hope that helps a bit also take breaks don't do this 7 days a week
User avatar #10896 to #10894 - obedientflyer (08/09/2013) [-]

There is probably nothing 'we' can do for him. You as a friend should talk to him about it in a serious manner. There is nothing that can to more for someone than a 1on1 conversation when it comes to motivation. I am personally a lazy person who was in the 110kgs(~240lbs?) and 170cm(~?'?"). I thought about how I felt about myself and decided to trim down to 90kgs(~200lbs), but it didn't work out the first month. I ate like a pig and wasn't able to work out how I wanted. What worked for me the second time was entering a sports group. There I was pushed to be better by the others, I told them that I needed help at being able to push myself. I was able to start working out in a systematic order, and consequently I was able to eat less. When I first started eating less I felt really bad in my stomach(was used to huge amounts..), but after a while I start liking the feeling of hunger. It then became easier to set up a good food program for each day, because I knew I could hold my urges for fat, sugar and all that is good in this world. I am now weighing 91kgs(~202lbs) so my goal is more or less achieved(190cm(6'2") tall).

The hardest part is often being able to continue if you happen to suddenly burst and eat a lot of shit. An important thing is that he MUST be proud of every health related action he does. If he is able to reward himself with confidence for each time he works out or reaches the next planned meal without eating, he will be able to do it easier for each time.

I would happily make him a program on eating and training, but it wouldn't be on par with professional help. I went through school on a top-sports route until I was 19 and have a lot of knowledge and experience as a swimming coach.

It may sound simple but 'push/press ups' are actually the most effective form of muscle building, you work your stomach, and all of your arms. I try to do at least 100 a day( not trying to gloat but I do it in one go I'll tell you how), I got to being able to do this I used to do 10 push/press ups whenever I was bored/angry/nervous and it really adds up, after about 3 days I moved up to 13, then 15, then 17, 20, 25 and so on, at first, I had 1-2 day intervals but now I don't usually need to.
#10877 to #10873 - anonymous (08/07/2013) [-]
I used to do that. I did pushups whenever I died in my vidya. I died a lot!

IDK if any of you would like this or not, I'm sure most of you have heard of it, but it's the deck of cards one. basically, get a full (shuffled) deck of cards. face cards are worth 10, ace can be 11 or 1 depending on what you feel like. this is what I do
diamonds - squats w/ 30lb kettlebell
hearts - kettle bell swings w/ 30lb
spades (10, J, Q, K, high ace) - burpees
spades (everything else) - pistols
clubs - lunges

I've recently put on about 30lbs. because I don't have health insurance and I have PCOS (which can make hormones crazy and make you gain weight). Anyway, I try to jog but I run out of breath really quickly and end up in pain trying to catch my breath due to my diaphragm extending unnaturally high into my right lung- the lung capacity in my right lung is drastically lower than my left.

Any tips?
#10891 to #10854 - anonymous (08/08/2013) [-]
I've got asthma and unfortunately a love for running as well so what I suggest is working up to longer distances. Start out with a 400 on a track and wait 5 mins then jog it again. Continue doing this type of workout until you dont need the break between the any of the 400s anymore. You can gradually shorten the break time if need be. Start out jogging the 400s and as time continues get faster. You shouldnt run faster than your best mile time plus 1 min though or you could get injured but idk if that matters to anyone not on a track or xc team.

I never had good stamina, but at soccer training our coach made us run a lap of the perimeter of our field which had about 4 soccer pitches in it, every 30 minutes, as weeks and months progressed we did more laps, more frequently, it really doesn't feel like it's working but it does I know from experience.
#10866 to #10854 - anonymous (08/06/2013) [-]
Apart from what the other commenter has suggested, I would advise saving up to get the problem sorted a little if you can't lose any weight.

It's a vicious cycle, you gain weight from it and it gets worse as you gain weight. I had to get some tablets to get my hormones sorted, then was able to lose some.
User avatar #10856 to #10854 - connorjay (08/06/2013) [-]

Use the machine
I've got asthma, I can't run for whatever reason but I can cycle for about 30-40 minutes at a fairly high intensity

Or skip. Even 5 minutes of skipping it brilliant.
I started last summer, I couldn't skip. Within two weeks I was skippng at 120 a minute. Tones your shoulders, I lost half a stone in a week, and got my 6 pack vaguely back.

Skipping is the exercise of Gods, I need to get back into it.
