Need some good ab workouts
User avatar #17169 to #17141 - misticalz (08/23/2014) [-]
Sit down
back straight
legs like -\ (pretend that's ya knee m8)
Take a medicine ball, or just a weight that you feel comfortable. could use a dumbbell, even a heavy speaker I guess.
And do twists with it.
like, handle the ball from side to side. I think you know what I mean.

Do as many reps as you want and as many sets as you want
User avatar #17142 to #17141 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Hanging leg raises, ab wheel, reverse crunches, pullups w/ hang leg raise hold, leg raises. There is a ton of them you could do.

I weigh 150, I'd like to get down to 140-130, maybe even 120, any advice on how to do that as quickly as possible without dying? Near death is fine, I'd like to avoid dying tho.

Running and gradually lowering your caloric intake are always good approaches to losing weight.
User avatar #17139 to #17133 - lolpandas (08/21/2014) [-]
The general guideline is about 1/2lb a week (not counting water weight), and that's by burning/consuming 300ish calories under maintenance a day. You could easily do more than 1/2lb a week but I wouldn't push it to more than 1lb at your weight. That being said, it will still be a while before you can realistically achieve your goal. You could always choose your least favorite limb and "accidentally" chop it off.

Many people don't seem to realize that unless you are in extreme conditions of either malnourishment or obesity that gains and losses aren't going to be instantaneous. It's a process, and it's going to take some work.
User avatar #17137 to #17133 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Fastest way to do it is to lower your calorie intake to a few hundred below what you need, while also ramping up your metabolism as much as possible by doing a fat loss workout routine. Lifts 3 days a week ever other day doing big compound movements (squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press), then on days you don't lift weights you should do some HIIT (High intensity interval training), basically sprint or do some super fast activity for 30 seconds, then rest 30 seconds and do it again for about 6-8 repetitions. If you are a girl (I'm assuming you are, few guys want to weigh 120lbs), I wouldn't want to weight a certain amount, you could weight 120 pounds and look terrible if you lose muscle instead of fat. If you do what I just told you you will not only lose 99% fat, but you'll look great and probably will weigh around 135-140. If you do this right it may take a couple months. Anything faster then that you risk losing muscle, killing your metabolism, and gaining all the weight back and more, looking worse then you started.

So, uh, I'm broke as shit and have no weights for lifting. So, bodyweight exercises good?
User avatar #17148 to #17147 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
It'll be much more difficult to retain muscle mass, but you could. Lots of pushups, pullups, sprints, and core work.

Well, the good news is, with school starting, I have Military Fitness as gym class, so come to think of it, I'll most likely have access to weights.
User avatar #17132 - kinginyellow (08/21/2014) [-]
Hey I'm trying to get down to 160, a healthy weight for my height, and I was wondering how I would go about it. I'm at 214 now, lost the 6-ish pounds by cutting out a lot of junk food and soda, and I've taken to 5 reps of 10 pushups and 5 reps of 10 situps. Is this enough? And if so, how long before I notice some bigger change?
User avatar #17136 to #17132 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
See how many calories your body needs a day with a calculator on the internet. Then make sure you eat a few hundred calories below that. Combine that with some kind of physical activity like walking, working out, playing basketball, etc and you'll lose about a pound or two a week.

User avatar #17121 to #17113 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
If you've been working out for at least a few years it shouldn't be hard at all to get everything back to where it was.
User avatar #17124 to #17121 - thegrohltroll (08/21/2014) [-]
6 months actually
User avatar #17125 to #17124 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
So 6 months on, then 2 months off?

Still shouldn't be horrible, lost gains are a lot easier to get back then it is to make new gains.

Does anyone know of a weightlifting sport or just like, a sport that has fitness/training tied into it? For example, the Reebok crossfit games, that has weightlifting, cardio, etc. Also, can someone tell me what's so bad about crossfit I watched the games and it seemed to be a legit test of fitness. I'm on mobile so sorry for any typos
User avatar #17145 to #17093 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Oh and strongman competitions.
User avatar #17120 to #17093 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Powerlifting is a weightlifting sport.

Also there isn't anything wrong with doing crossfit, it's just that 90% of the trainers are shit, don't know what they are talking about, and that because of the super high intense and overwhelmingly bad form that is usually implemented injuries are a very normal occurance. If you can do it properly while maintaining as much good form as possible and avoiding injury it can actually help you build muscle and make you super lean.

No i am saying like a sport where it is (sorry if i am using it in the wrong context) "literally" weight-lifting, endurance etc.
User avatar #17081 - unncommon (08/20/2014) [-]
I just got transferred into Weight Lifting 1. Has any of you taken weight lifting in High School and can tell me what goes on in there? Like is it a routine or just a free for all?

Pretty much a free for all but we had to log it and had some homework.
User avatar #17086 to #17081 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/20/2014) [-]
During my weight lifting class we just did Bigger, Faster, Stronger as a routine. We just did bench, squat, overhead press, and power cleans.

can you guys gimme tips on what I should work on at the gym to body fat and get a chiseled body? I don't like having skinny fat.
User avatar #17096 to #17056 - thelegendneverdies (08/21/2014) [-]
<3 <3 <3

Anyways if you have a muscular build and want to get lean at this point I'd just say work on losing fat. As bladeboy said cut out all pop and shit and eat v healthy, and do more cardio. Also, not that you have to post it, but getting your body fat % could really help. There's calculators online, not 100% accurate but it'll do. If you're 180 getting down to 150 by sprang break should be no biggie

I believe in you senpai we should switch weights. i want to be 180 and my lazy ass did close to nil this summer except not eat so it'll be at least October before I'm there

browse fit for the body rate threads, with a couple months of lifting you'll probably look like them.

Start doing benchpress, curls, dip, pull ups all the basic stuff for starters, dont forget to do squats and deadlifts as well.

What muscle do you want to focus on?

You dont really get abs from working them out, it helps, but losing fat is how you get abs
User avatar #17080 to #17079 - misticalz (08/20/2014) [-]
yeah I know that part
I just think I know that I don't really have any anyways so I might as well get them stronger while I'm at it.
tbh I probably just need to lose body fat, I already have a muscular build
User avatar #17082 to #17080 - bladeboy (08/20/2014) [-]
If you want to build up core then do leg raises on a dip machine. I suggest only throwing abs in at the end of your workout, never as a full on focus.
User avatar #17085 to #17082 - misticalz (08/20/2014) [-]
Also I'm reading the /fit/ sticky rn

it says protein helps cut body fat. The only protein I'm getting is from Peanutbutter, nuts, and small amounts of coldcut meat.

I'm thinking I should invest in some protein powder?

and do you have any tips for cutting down fat m8?
User avatar #17089 to #17085 - bladeboy (08/20/2014) [-]
Yea, all that stuff you have is really healthy and good, keep it up. I would invest in protein powder as well.

If you want to cut down weight make sure you're eating AT LEAST 3 small, healthy portion meals. Brown rice, veggies, chicken, fish would be a good example. Go for runs at least 3 times a week, and cut out pop and milk, only water. Also, no bread if you wanna be extreme.
User avatar #17090 to #17089 - misticalz (08/21/2014) [-]

Normally what I do is I get books from Men's Health or some magazines for dieting to workouts, so that way I can try new routines and have a variety of nutritious food. I never count my caloric intake (though I probably should) but I usually have 3 meals a day with 2 snacks in between. Incorporate cardio into your routines. I'd give you my current workout routine but it's too long to go over and I'll probably go for another workout routine to beat plateau (plus I find repeating routines with just adding more weight a little boring, I'd probably get a lot of flack for saying that here). But all in all, proper eating, more fruits and vegetables, less red meat and check out some bookstores or bodybuilding.com for some useful tips and exercises. I hope this helps you out. And motivation is key. I believe in you misticalz.

I've been doing my cardio shit every day, one day running and one day incline. Been also lifting, doing push-ups and all that for like a month. Anyway, my waist went to 29 inches to 26. My mum, who's a real health junkie, thinks I'm too skinny.

you'll get used to the pain
User avatar #17032 to #17028 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/19/2014) [-]
If it's painful because of clothing or whatever, you could just do some other ab movements. Situps are actually not that great for building your abs.
User avatar #17033 to #17032 - nefarian (08/19/2014) [-]
Any recommendations?
User avatar #17034 to #17033 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/19/2014) [-]
Most major lifts work the core, squat, overhead press, curls, pullups. All involve the muscles of the core to stabilize the movement, so unless you have an especially weak core you really don't even have to do core exercises. If you want to do them though, I'd recommend hanging leg raises, reverse crunches with a weight, and wheel rolls.

oh so it's your lower back and ass hurting? Same thing happens to me. Do it on a rug, or a mat yeah. Don't wear thick, hard clothing around your waist either
User avatar #17030 to #17029 - nefarian (08/19/2014) [-]
I did it on the floor WHILE wearing thick clothing around my waist. This explains everything.

So I got a packet for the National Guard today in the mail, and as I was reading through it and considering the benefits of it (a little extra income, some money for rent if I move out, pays for school), I am seriously considering looking into it. I'm already wanting to join the Air Force as an officer after college, so I think it would be a good introduction into that kind of life, that plus being able to help others during floods or any kinds of disasters would be a fantastic feeling. Anyone have any kind of experience with it?

Obviously I only want to cleanse chicago and st. louis of the rioting negro communities.

Holy shit dude. Where in Illinois.
User avatar #17008 to #17006 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/19/2014) [-]
In between Springfield and St. Louis, about 10 miles from the Illinois river.
User avatar #17010 to #17008 - scoobydoobydo (08/19/2014) [-]
Ahh you live in the rural part. I have only been to Springfield once on a field trip for the Lincoln stuff. I live about 35 minutes from downtown in bloomingdale. We will have to lift sometime.
User avatar #17013 to #17010 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/19/2014) [-]
Ah so a Chicagoan eh? And hell yeah it's rural here, but I love it. And if I'm ever in the area and need a lifting buddy I'll let ya know.

have you thought about any of the reserve forces? (aside from NG)
>inb4 Rangers still don't have a scuba qual
User avatar #17005 to #17004 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/19/2014) [-]
I hadn't, like I said I just got a thing in the mail for the National Guard and it seemed like a good deal for me while I was in college and before I tried to go OCS and become an officer.

Whats the difference between NG and the other reserves?
#17007 to #17005 - fresighto (08/19/2014) [-]
They play different roles and NG forces are beholden to the gov of your state instead of a CG at the end of the day.

If you have more specific questions i can help you with those- i typed a text wall, and hit the goddamned home button instead of backspace and it deleted it. I'm not retyping it, but id be glad to answer anything you want to know.
BTW, I am not a recruiter. Just want you to make a good choice, whatever is best for you. I was a marine in 1MSOB, and I loved the hell out of it. I'm listed disabled now, otherwise it'd still be there. Please forgive my bias toward the corps.

Well I'm in school, I have a job and I live with family. The NG from what I've read is one weekend a month, helps with school (a HUGE plus for me) and will allow me to have some kind of military training before I try to enlist in the Air Force as an officer after I get my bachelors degree in a few years. What kind of work do they do? Is there a kind of basic training for 6-8 weeks before you start doing drills once a month? Is there a set time limit I have to be in the NG before I could join the Air Force? I'll be asking for further info from the NG itself, but the idea of an extra paycheck and having a lot of school paid for while preparing me for a military lifestyle seems promising.

hey guys any advice on how to lose weight I currently weigh 202 and 6ft tall I'm trying to get in a weight training class and have been counting calories but wanted to ask if there is anything else I could do.

how much should i run each day?
User avatar #17021 to #17019 - chocolatehotdog (08/19/2014) [-]
you should do HIIT, e.g. sprinting and jogging, for the quickest results. Do it ten minutes four or five times a week, or 45 mins two times a week (etc,.) Don't do any cardio longer than 45 mins.
User avatar #17048 to #17021 - imnotasian (08/20/2014) [-]
sounds good and I'm doing this since I got about 3 months to get into rock climbing shape so hopefully this will help
User avatar #17020 to #17019 - misticalz (08/19/2014) [-]
idk bruh
User avatar #16992 - unncommon (08/18/2014) [-]
Any of you guys know how many calories school lunch has? I failed a couple grades and am in high school (because parties, depression, injury, and just being all around immature when I was younger). I gotta work my ass off so hopefully I can graduate this year.
User avatar #16999 to #16992 - thelegendneverdies (08/19/2014) [-]
You'd probably have to ask the people there, or find out what company they're sourcing from, because they usually do. Can you make your own? Also, best of luck man.

Thumb 4 U gud sir.

School lunch is a pretty general term lol. I make my lunch though so I can track the macros plus its healthy and not pizza or shit everyday.
