Does anyone have that quote from the [Renaissance I'm assuming] where it says something along the lines of "Every man should be an expert in the field of physical training, for it is a sin if you do not see your body at its fullest potential."? I'd appreciate it.
User avatar #10377 to #10375 - lolpandas (06/23/2013) [-]
Sounds like Socrates.

'No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training…what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. "

Hey fit, I'd describe myself as in between skinny fat and built fat. I'v been doing insanity for about 5 weeks and can't say I'v lost weight. I'v also been doing oblique exercises because that has always been a problem area for me and those helped a little bit no weight was lost. I can't say that really anything has changed since doing insanity, perhaps I look slightly less pudgy but not a whole lot. I used to be very athletic and look pretty good so I know what it takes to get fit, but unfortunately a lot of injuries have made pushing the limit pretty unwise.
I'd like to slim down my torso and build my pectorals a little bit. My lower body is completely fine and doesn't need work at all, which is why I think insanity isn't really helping a whole lot it is heavily focused on lower body. My obliques are very odd compared to the rest of my upper body. They are well built but have a good layer of fat that I can't get rid of, doing oblique workouts helps a little bit, but I'm afraid they are just going to make the muscle bigger and not lose fat at all.

Got any advice?

avoid all grains(anything with flour, even whole grains), I'll skip the details just do it and you'll lose weight guaranteed.

You need a good diet. There is no way that you are going all out with Insanity without results unless your eating habits are poor. Also, this kind of workout will make you lose weight everywhere. You lose fat where your body decides it should come off, so doing upper-body workouts won't specifically make you lose weight in your upper body.

However, assuming you want to build muscle in you upper body (or lower, for that matter), you should join a gym.

I feel like free weights are better than machines but I just need some confirmation. can someone give me some pros and cons of both please?
#10370 to #10368 - anonymous (06/22/2013) [-]
It depends on the kinds of weights and specific exercises you'd be doing. Compound movements done with barbells are superior for beginners as they works several different muscle groups and once and really require your body to get stronger and bigger as a whole. Machines don't do that, they only isolate.

Once a good base of strength is developed, then it's fine to incorporate some machines into your routine, especially to help further develop weak points. I hate machines, but have to use them right now because my gym is shitty. Going to switch to a power-lifting gym soon and touch nothing but sweet iron.
#10371 to #10370 - anonymous (06/22/2013) [-]
work several different muscle groups at once*

User avatar #10369 to #10368 - thisismyhandle (06/22/2013) [-]
Free Weights compared to machines

-You can do basically anything with them
-There are typically more weight variations (almost no machines can have weight raised by 2.5 pounds)
-You can do everything with the same basic equipment/in the same area, but with machines you need a different one for almost each different, specific exercise)
-(IMO) they are often more comfortable than machines when used for the same exercise

-They are far more dangerous if you don't take the necessary precautions (having a spot, knowing limits, etc)
-Difficult for beginners. Not only is there danger, but form and general knowledge of different exercises takes time to learn and perfect.

I don't feel motivated to work out anymore
I used to workout every other day, but now I don't even feel like doing that...
User avatar #10383 to #10367 - mexicanfood ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
WOrkout, keep it on schedule. eventually it will become habit forming. This is when you need to stick it out the most
#10372 to #10367 - anonymous (06/22/2013) [-]
What's your end goal, because if you don't have one you'll wander off the path set before us by Brodin. If you stray you can be brought back by one who is true to the course.
However you must remember if you do choose to not workout anymore every drop of sweat you have poured, all those hours of effort are for nothing and you will fall into shadow.

Also i saw your picture below and would describe myself as "swimmer otter mode" with more bulk around the arms. I would have to use an ab machine to look like Ripped or athletic

Here's my story.
I was about... 5'9 160 pounds. I was skinny but not... tone or muscular.
I started P90x (lean) and went down to 130 pounds, I was in very good shape, and was very skinny. Not sickly looking, but vert fit.
I then moved on to P90x (doubles) And am now 5'10' (grew an inch) and 138 pounds. Im around 7% body fat.
*Note* I did this by eating healthy and doing it every day

Do you guys use some kind of software to track your diet/fitness progress? If so, what is it?

Also, can someone recommend me a free fitness software to track fitness logs? I don't have enough money to register for Bodeefit and such. the free one usually just like MS Excel with 'workout log' title, it's cheap ass shit

Used to weigh 175 lbs (had quite a bit of fat) and I benched 160 lbs.
I lost weight and now I weigh in the 130~135 lbs area.
After losing that weight, I've only been able to press 135 lbs and can't even get 150 lbs off the rack.
Is is body weight related or what?
User avatar #10353 to #10352 - obedientflyer (06/20/2013) [-]
You loose muscle when you loose weight. It happens to everyone.

Over the last 2 weeks I've been trying to get back into working out and I've finally made serious progress. For the first time in my life a couple days ago, I ran a mile in less than 10 minutes. I reached a mile in 9:37. Now, I haven't been able to get even close to that since, but I'm working my way back towards that and to still have enough energy to use machines and do some body exercises.

But still, that's progress!

Nice! I recently broke the 8:30 mark for the first time myself.

This is a summer I get fit. I will make myself a stronger man. I will make myself a skinnier man. I will make myself an overall more respectable man. I have my own self-motivational push, but something is still missing. I need to hear your success stories. I need to hear your stories of turning your life around and how it made your life exponentially better. That's all.
#10348 to #10344 - houseofbrick (06/17/2013) [-]
I'm overweight and have been for a while, so I don't really have that much of a "success story", but I recently broke a personal record. I ran a mile in 9:37 when my previous record was somewhere around 10:30.

im joining you brother, i start gym this month got my diet planned. Just need the inspiration to keep it going

So, we're talking about food here?
How about some Philly Cheese Steak stuffed bell peppers?
You're gonna need some bell peppers (2 large ones will make 4 of these), some provolone cheese, a VERY small amount of olive oil, half of an onion, and an 8 ounce package (give or take a little) of roast beef.
Take Roast Beef (like the kind you get in the clear deli boxes don't use the giant 4 pound pack or else this will end up tasting like shit) and onions and chop them up. Kinda just fry the onions with a touch of olive oil until they start to carmelize. Now add in your roast beef and fry them together until the onions are completely caramelized or you're just happy with the way it looks. If you want the cheese to be all through out the meat and not just on top/bottom, I would suggest VERY strongly to add a few slices of your provolone cheese and stirring it up into the roast beef while it's still really hot.
Then take 2 large bell peppers and line them with provolone cheese. Place your beef mixture in their bell pepper and cheese cocoon, and top with more cheese. Place in the oven and broil on high until cheese is kinda melted and kinda golden.

Honeycrisp Apples master race.
1: incredibly juicy
2: crunchy and crisp
3: sweet, but not sickeningly so
4: good texture to the flavor
5: medium to medium-large size
1: Expensive
2: Real Honeycrisp Apples are somewhat season-locked.

Eating a lot is going through en entire tub of yogurt in 2 days, eating a pound of steak per day and going through a gallon of milk every 2 days.

Well, I'm kind of here to be one of those guys who has what's probably a dumb question.
I've got the littlest bit of fat to burn, you know, typical shit. Little on my chest/abs, but the bit that bothers me most is the "Lovehandles" which I believe are over my obliques (At least that's what I remember being told, anyways). So basically I want to cut some of that out. I don't drink soda hardly ever (Maybe a can a week at most) and otherwise eat relatively well and work a labor-intensive job, so I'm in fair shape, but not necessarily toned. Not that I'd mind making that happen, either.
As for equipment, all I have are a set of 3,5,10 lb dumbells, one of those ab-rollers, and a pullup bar. A friend recommended using the pullup bar and pulling my knees up to my chest to work out aforementioned oblique muscles. Thoughts?
Or is there a diet/specific regime of little workouts I should do everyday instead?

Hi chewy

What are you doing on food thread?
User avatar #10318 to #10312 - mexicanfood ONLINE (06/15/2013) [-]
the only way to reduce fat on any body part is to reduce your overall body fat percentage

working your obliques will just give you bigger obliques which will make your love handles stand out more

Run. Running solves a lot of problems.
Also, if you are going for like a 6 pack remember, abs are made in the kitchen. In order to get one of those sexy abs you need to watch what you eat hardcore.
User avatar #10314 to #10312 - disobedientdigger (06/14/2013) [-]
Do some core exercises.
Deadlifts, Side planks, Barbell Side Bends work the Obliques really well.

1. Heat up your body in an oven
