leaving for navy basic in about 4 days
not terribly out of shape (ran a mile in a little over 10 minutes, have to be able to run 1.5 miles in a bare minimum of 13:30), but not an athletic god by any means
my problem is always pushing through the pain, does have any tips on how to do that? or is it just something i'm going to have to figure out how to fight through on my own?
User avatar #10436 to #10431 - newposterintown (07/04/2013) [-]
Tenacity? If you aren't determined you want to do it.

Or just try focusing hard. On nothing but your movement; because when I'm trying to hit a very specific goal and I'm close to meeting it, it's almost like my legs just move on their own (despite the fact they ache).

Try listening to music, it helps keep my mind off the fatigue and pumps me up.

nice man, you look sort of retarded in the picture.
But there's half the sport photos anyway.

+Respect from me that you like water polo.

with proper form yes

I could go 10 pounds heavier but my knees start to bend inward and buckle when I go that high

A few days ago I was running at an altitude of 6000 ft and it made my legs feel like they were going to fall off but now that im back at sea level my legs feel like they are going to explode. Is this normal?
#10426 to #10425 - rety (07/02/2013) [-]
yeah, its part of DOMS
In high alt areas, you tire much easier and your muscles produce more lactic acid due to lower oxygen levels, causing soreness/fall off sensation
legs feeling like they'll explode, again prob just DOMS(delayed onset muscle soreness)
but if you start getting shooting pain, some nerves might be involved, and you might want to find a doctor

so my friend introduced me to something and i'd like to know if anyone else has heard of it
he calls it (them?) Motherfuckers
-5 calf raises (i think that's what they're called, you lift up unto your toes)
-5 hops in place
-5 half-jacks (jumping jacks without the arm raises)
-5 jumping jacks
-5 hops in place
-5 calf raises
and that's all 1 rep
we did 5 of them, he usually does 10+
2 days later, i still feel it (yes, yes, i know i'm a wimp)

Hey Fitness, what are your thoughts on steroids?
#10403 - wispsimon (06/29/2013) [-]
Been lifting dumbells for a while. In the beginning I was able to add weight every week or so, but now it has stopped. I have been stuck at 15 kg for a while. Should I stay at 15 kg? I read somewhere that you need to add more weight all the time to get bigger. I still struggle with 15 kg though.

Anyone know what to do?
User avatar #10404 to #10403 - lolpandas (06/29/2013) [-]
DB's are more difficult to add weight frequently since you can't really add weights smaller than 5lbs at a time unless you find tiny plates. Try adding barbell work. Also adding supporting lifts to whatever lifts you're trying to improve will help.

Anyone have any good beginners basic work out Daily regiments?
User avatar #10437 to #10391 - newposterintown (07/04/2013) [-]
Ah, you really don't need a specific routine.

I started out just doing as many pull-ups or push-ups as I could and I started progressing. Start small; if you can't to a pull-up, don't dead-drop, just do halves. Push-ups, if they're too hard, just do your limit and make sure you have good form so you cheat yourself.

Don't listen to these people.

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. "

Yeah I found what I was looking for earlier. Thanks anyways brah!

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?
User avatar #10424 to #10374 - mcbee (07/02/2013) [-]
avoid all grains(anything with flour, even whole grains), I'll skip the details just do it and you'll lose weight guaranteed.
#10540 to #10424 - 4chan refugee (07/18/2013) [-]
shake-weights.
User avatar #10380 to #10374 - thisismyhandle (06/24/2013) [-]
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 - 4chan refugee (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 - 4chan refugee (06/22/2013) [-]
work several different muscle groups at once*



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

Pros:
-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

Cons:
-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 (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 - 4chan refugee (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.
