  • Leg Pressed 930 yesterday for my heavy double...I'm on my way to 1K, but there is a problem. The sled holds a max of 810:( (the sled weighs 120). And they don't have any 100 pound plates at Planet Fitness. I think I'm just going to have someone sit on it when I get to that ability, lol.

    • Every morning I wake up I've been doing ab exercises (leg lifts, crunches, sit ups, and bicycle crunches) along with pushups.

      At lunch I do more pushups (not many, maybe 15)

      Then in the evening I do more pushups, crunches, and walk for an hour.

      I've got to lose 50lbs soon.

        Are you a member a gym? I use the sit down bike for 45 miuntes on cardio days and just watch the Phillies. Time flies that way. Burns 394 calories for me as well.

          Yes, I am. When I used to go I used the elliptical and treadmill.

            If the goal is to lose 50lbs back off of the abs and do more cardio. Ab exercises aren't going to help much for what you want to accomplish. Ab exercises will build up the muscle, but it won't burn a lot of calories so you won't be losing much weight from it.

              When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

                • At around 270. The scale in the locker room said 276 but I subtracted 6 pounds due to shoes, sweat soaked clothes, and not having **** in a while.

                  My body hurts from my previous two workouts. I hate conditioning tests, have to prepare for one in just 5-6 weeks, which should be plenty of time if I keep practicing and doing other conditioning.

                  ^Thanks to Eaglez.Fan for the sweet sig!

                  • I hated conditioning tests......altho I was way bigger then. I would probably not mind them as much right now. My cardio is getting pretty good.

                      • I really need to start lifting this week but I have absolutely no motivation to go to the gym whatsoever. Idk what it is because I used to be a really hard worker.

                          This is the only thing I can give advice on, motivation. I have struggled with motivation to go to the gym for a while, and is a big part of the reason I've never been in good shape. Over the last year or so, I've really started to get motivated. The big thing is forcing yourself into a routine regardless of circumstances. If you have no time, still go to the gym, just to do it even if you don't stay that long. I've found that once I get into a routine with going to the gym, I will feel guilty and lazy if I don't go one day.

                          • I'm at 147...so pissed that its the end of the third week and havn't added on any more weight. I went from 144 to 147, now I hit a wall.

                            I'm start making my own weight gainer of whey, oatmeal, banana, peanut butter and milk.

                            I eat 3000 clean calories, I'm about to up it to 3500.

                              Best way to do it, is keep making sure your heart rate changes when doing cardio. Doing cardio for 1 hr is okay, but doing cardio for 30 mins, with different intervals will really burn those calories. The 1 hour cardio, your body will be like ohh snap the first 10 mins, then it'll be like okay I know what to do to now no sweat. Now if you do 30 mins, of intense stuff, like jog then sprint walk, sprint again. You body won't know what the hell to do and you'll burn of more calories and fat that way.

                              • I need to get protein. It's been three weeks at the gym and I haven't been taking any supplements other than Fish Oil that I've discontinued.
