Endurance training would be good for that I think. Just run at a brisk pace, eventually when you get tired it wears down into a jog, and have a set distance to run - but don't forget to add laps to make sure you're actually progressing. It's good to stay fit whereas stuff like sprints and frog leaps are good for leg muscle development.

"I don't what muscle I just want to be fit."

Why don't you want to build muscle? If you are afraid of looking like a bodybuilder, then don't worry. It takes years of clean eating and heavy lifting. Which is something you don't seem to be willing to do.

Anyways.. What do you mean when you say that you want to be fit?
User avatar #10736 to #10735 - kingarther (08/01/2013) [-]
I prefer speed to strength so workouts that get my muscle toned and my heart strong are what I am looking for.
User avatar #10783 to #10736 - themongoose (08/05/2013) [-]
Your logic is quite faulty.

Cardio training conditions the body and forces it to be more efficient in burning calories - your metabolism will skyrocket it's not off the charts already. These are good things. BUT strength training increases all aspects of fitness. Conditioning is lost and gained fairly easily - for a healthy person, within a matter of weeks it is gained, and within a matter of weeks it is lost. If you're already in a conditioned state, you can increase to an extent, but it's not doing much for the health of your body (which is what should be meant by "fit" - healthy). Strength training, on the other hand, builds the muscles that causes the body to move (obviously). If you increase your power, you increase all other aspects of fitness and health as well. You NEED a strength training regiment to make you faster and "fit," so I don't really understand what you mean "I don't want muscle I just want to be fit."

Also, the whole "toned" thing is a myth - as a skinny person, as you put it, any muscle you put on will make you look "toned." Someone who is toned just has low body fat (which it sounds like you do), therefore allowing the muscle to show through the skin. It doesn't matter if you do high reps with low weight or low reps with high weight.

Your best bet: increase your calorie intake to allow you do build muscle, slow down on your cardio so your already high metabolism doesn't cannibalize your muscle mass, do HIIT once or twice a week and the rest of the time LIFT. You will be blown away at your results. You'll build muscle and get the toned look you want, all while increasing your speed, endurance and strength.

So cardio based workouts?
User avatar #10738 to #10737 - kingarther (08/01/2013) [-]
As much as I hate cardio... yes
User avatar #10739 to #10738 - Eox (08/01/2013) [-]
I would suggest doing HIIT!

mixed with interval running before your actual workouts.

What if I said I was asthmatic ?
User avatar #10741 to #10740 - Eox (08/01/2013) [-]
You can do HIIT with asthma as long as you do not do it for long periods of time. Which you shouldn't with HIIT. So I would think that the workout that I gave you should be just fine. But remember: What Should I Do to Control My Asthma When I Exercise?

Always use your pre-exercise asthma inhalers (inhaled bronchodilators) before beginning exercise.
Perform warm-up exercises and maintain an appropriate cool-down period after exercise.
If the weather is cold, exercise indoors or wear a mask or scarf over your nose and mouth.
If you have allergic asthma, avoid exercising outdoors when pollen counts are high and when there is high air pollution.
Restrict exercise when you have a viral infection, like a cold.
Exercise at a level that is appropriate for you.

Swimming burns the most calories of any aerobic exercise and never gets you overheated. Muscle workouts produce an afterburn affect that eventually burns more calories over time

Working out, getting in some fitness for the summer of next year when I go to Canada to learn Drunken Kung Fu.

Yes, I take it seriously.

Anyway, just wanted to know some cool exercises you guys do. I've been doing the same thing every day for the past few months, and I realized the best way to motivate yourself (or just not to get bored in general) is to switch it up often.
So far I've just been jogging, doing sit ups, doing those elbow-punch situps (idk what they're really called), dragon-flags, leg lifts, squats, a simple calf workout, and numerous types of push-ups.
It sounds like a lot I guess, but most of these things feel almost exactly the same. What are some cool workouts you guys do?

Also, please note that I don't have weights. Everything I do, I do using my own body weight.
User avatar #10707 to #10705 - spankyy (08/01/2013) [-]
For just body weight? Try buying a pull-up bar. The kind you put in your door frames perhaps. Do some pull ups, and try things like one-legged squats, crane hops, diamond push-ups, one handed push-ups (half-way if you can't do full), supermans, wall sits. There are a good number you can do with just body weight, but i'm definitely an advocate of free weight training. You can probably get a gym membership somewhere for 10$ a month.
User avatar #10709 to #10707 - spankyy (08/01/2013) [-]
Oh and if you don't know what crane hops are (doing martial arts you might know of them) just stand on one leg with your knee of the other leg at about chest or stomach height, then hop up with the leg on the ground, and land on the leg you had raised.

Put simply, raise one leg up to waist or higher, hop and switch. repeat.

Squats > Deadlifts
Deadlifts > squats
Opinion ?
#10722 to #10700 - anonymous (08/01/2013) [-]
Deadlifts are fun. Squats are some shit you just have to do.
User avatar #10708 to #10700 - spankyy (08/01/2013) [-]
As far as just enjoying them I prefer Deadlifts. As far as being better, they're different exercises. Squats will buff up your legs, deadlifts will do a LOT of body parts. Primarily back and core.
#10704 to #10700 - unoriginalaccount (08/01/2013) [-]
I personally like deadlifts more than squats.

Anyone here into Highland/Scottish games? Stone throw, caber toss, weight for distance, etc.? I'm looking to get into it (I'm built right for it plus dem scottish roots) and I am looking for tips and anyone in the upstate New York area to train with/learn from.

Posted this on 4chans fit and alternate sports boards; little real results.
#10696 to #10695 - anonymous (08/01/2013) [-]
Shit basically looks like Scottish strong-man training. All that functional strength

No offense, but you'll probably be terrible at all of it unless you've been strength training for a few years or doing something of that nature. Try and find a group or festival in your area that holds that type of stuff though. Try not to die
User avatar #10697 to #10696 - jcfjr (08/01/2013) [-]
Oh, no, I know I'll be terrible. The first few festivals (at least) will be about making connections with people who can help me improve technique and with whom I can train with.

Hey guys.

I've been aiming to get to 120 by the end of the summer, and I'm super close, about 7 pounds away.

Summer for me is over in a few weeks, though, so what can I do to lose the rest within this amount of time?

I'm female, and I'm not saying that to seem special or ask for more attention because of the fact, but I know that when it comes to gender, losing weight may not take the same methods to get rid of it faster.

Thanks c:
User avatar #10778 to #10693 - abstract ONLINE (08/04/2013) [-]
At first I thought you were some skinny guy trying to get up to 120...

But yeah, lower calories, more cardio.
#10788 to #10778 - ohhaitharyou ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Nope. Just a short lady with some extra and unneeded chub.
User avatar #10789 to #10788 - abstract ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
How tall are you?
#10790 to #10789 - ohhaitharyou ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]

It's not too short, but when you have a friend who's 20 pounds heavier, yet looks more thin due to being 5'7, it kinda settles in your brain and makes you want to lightly toss a chair.
User avatar #10791 to #10790 - abstract ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Lightly toss a chair? You're gonna have to throw that chair as hard as you can to lose those extra pounds. Throwing chairs is actually the best cardio ever. It's a secret.
#10792 to #10791 - ohhaitharyou ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Tossing chairs is the best form of cardio?

Well that sounds a little... abstract.
User avatar #10702 to #10693 - theantidote (08/01/2013) [-]
Depends at what rate you lose it, 7 pounds is possible to be lost in a few weeks with strict dieting. However if you burn slower, I could recommend fasting then exercising. Just don't eat until after a gym/cardio session, you will be exhausted and it is unhealthy way to lose the weight, but it depends how much you want to lose it
#10743 to #10698 - ohhaitharyou ONLINE (08/01/2013) [-]
Well shit.

User avatar #10784 to #10692 - themongoose (08/05/2013) [-]
Hit the gym!

When I first got into working out, it was because I bought Arnold's book "The Body Building Encyclopedia." he has beginner and advanced routines, on top of how to perform each workout correctly so you don't hurt yourself, and which muscles they train. If you have someone you can workout with, your results will be almost double what they are when working out alone.

Most importantly, begin with your mind. Once you actually make the decision to get into shape and not let anything derail your plans, you will be invincible. If you have facebook and instagram, follow/like pages like Gym Memes, DOYOUEVEN.COM, Lance Schilling, BOSSfit. They're incredibly motivational.

User avatar #10678 - HURLEYSURFERDUDE (07/31/2013) [-]
Quick question, bastards and cunts alike. Ive been doing semi-regular PT. The strength stuff is alright no issues. But Running for me is getting batter.

What my question is, however, might I be doing something wrong? Whenever I run I do pretty decent times and distance but afterwards my right calf seems to hurt the most or be most sore. Yes my left may sting alittle but my right calf is mostly the one hurting. Does that mean I favor the right leg for most of my propulsion while running? Is that a bad thing?

Just curious.
#10785 to #10678 - anonymous (08/05/2013) [-]
suck on your left nip nip
User avatar #10763 to #10678 - newposterintown (08/04/2013) [-]
It may have to do with takeoff. I always takeoff on my right leg, and obviously since those are the muscles I am using to really get myself going they are being used a bunch. So maybe that is why it may be a bit more sore than your other leg, but I'm not sure.
User avatar #10679 to #10678 - alphabethsoop (07/31/2013) [-]
You might want to go to a running store and have your arch evaluated. If you arent wearing the proper shoes you could end up with injuries like the one you are having now. You could also be an over pronator which is also an example of bad footwear. Do not go to dicks or modells but a local running store to get your arch examined. Another thing you can do in the mean time is heating your calf before you run and icing it afterwards 15 mins for both should be fine.

User avatar #10759 to #10690 - alphabethsoop (08/04/2013) [-]
Oh okay v good because if you run on a track your right leg gets more wear than your left leg so you have to switch the direction youre running in to prevent injuries.

So I was planning on getting fit during August and I was wondering how to workout some obsure body parts.
Like the neck, side abs, calves etc.
User avatar #10673 to #10672 - lolpandas (07/30/2013) [-]
Compound lifts usually take care of the small muscle groups you wouldn't usually target. Squats, Deadlifts, Overhead Press, Bench press, Rows, etc.

If you want to isolate them instead, you can do weighted side bends and oblique crunches for your obliques (side abs).

Calf raises/presses for calves.

Not sure what you mean by neck, traps maybe or do you want to work out the actual neck? Rows and shrugs help traps.

So, semi-fitness related. I am meeting my recruiter tomorrow and her boss. I am at my maximum weight limit for my height, its pretty obvious that I havent been working out when my recruiter told the marine recruits to "steam" me.

Two questions, first, how does one go about getting ABS, such as the ones in the
picture, and secondly is it possible to get ABS like in the picture. I have never seen an
exercise program in my life and I wish to no longer be that kind of a fat lazy guy.
Also mfw nipple salads.

The key to losing weight is really obvious eating less calories than you burn. that doesnt mean you cant eat food though just eat protein with every meal and you should be okay until the next one. Also know how to say no to sodas because they will take away drasically from your allowed calorie without fill you up and you wont reach your goal. I suggest running because you can burn (in my case) 600 calories in just a 50 min run. If you decide to run, I also would buy a garmin gps watch and put your weight in truthfully or your calories wont be accurate. After you have lost significant weight I would work on your core but you can do some while you are still losing weight.
User avatar #10675 to #10660 - the one and only (07/30/2013) [-]
25% workout and 75% diet... that's what I've learnt and do strenght training for 3-4 times a week, give it 3 weeks you might see minor changes and do it for 6 months, your abs won't look like that within 6 months but it will start to form (also depends on the exercises you do for your abs)
#10665 to #10660 - lolpandas (07/30/2013) [-]
Krieg reminds me of Frank Zane. Ridiculously small waste but built as fuck. Yes it is possible, but Naturally? The low bodyfat % might be but not sustainable for an incredibly long time without loosing some mass, and you'd have to build a pretty solid physique before hand before you look like that.

Hit the weights and find a good program. Starting Strength as stated will get you a strong foundation, then move on to a split routine. Your diet needs to be on point also.
#10661 to #10660 - sharing (07/29/2013) [-]
possible with low body fat
you should try starting strength or a 3-4 day routine
