[Muscles] Working Out [Invincble Beauty!] (42)

1 Name: Enthusiast : 2005-11-24 19:34 ID:jaIcX+bm

Do we have any other weight lifters here? I only started about 6 months ago, so I'm just now starting to see results... It'd be a lot better if I could change my diet, though... :(

Does lifting boxes at work count? I reckon I've got a nice set of biceps from stacking frozen stuff all day long...

We have an obligatory workout program at school so I follow it. I never thought I'd say this but I actually enjoy doing it. :)

I forgot to mention that I'm less into the physical weightlifting and more into the other things.

5 Name: Enthusiast : 2005-11-26 16:30 ID:7kPUAoYz

I would be well-served to concentrate more on aerobic exercise... I could stand to lose about 20 pounds or so. But I hate running... :( I'd rather lift.

I used to have a regular routine. I should get back into it.

I used to lift, but I'm stopping for now cos:

I believe lifting impedes growth, and I feel I still have the potential to grow another 1 or 2 cm.

For results, lifting requires alot of discipline, and even more so for maintaining what you've gained. I'm gonna have a very busy year ahead of me, so it would be impossible for me to troop down to the gym regularly.

But I have this friend who used to be extremely scrawny and get bullied alot. He started lifting and after about a year, now his chest muscles are larger than some girls' boobs.

Listen to the voice of the internet, it is never wrong and does not rely on the fallacies that are logic and reasoning.

Just got back into my "as many pushups/pullups as I can do at night" regimen. Ouch. It's gonna be worth it, since I'll be closer to a non-horribly underweight body if I keep going.

14 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-01-29 19:31 ID:7Ek4D1Us

I think most people ought to exercise more.

I do push-ups and sit-ups in the aisle between cubicles every night at work, after the managers go home and I'm alone on the graveyard shift.

I am thinking about getting a cheap cast-iron 40 pound dumbbell to do curls, presses, and shrugs in my cubicle, and I'll hold it against my chest when I do sit-ups.

I too have become a fatass since I got out of college and wasn't able to work out every night any more, but I'm slowly, slowly getting back into shape. Remember, muscle mass is where fat gets burned.

It'd probably help if I ate something besides the crap from the vending machines in the break room, though. T_T;

>Remember, muscle mass is where fat gets burned.

Untrue. You can't control where on your body you'll lose fat from. Also, anaerobic exercises like lifting weights aren't very effective for losing weight. The best way to lose fat is with aerobic exercises like jogging, circuit training with lighter weights, etc.

16 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-01-30 01:43 ID:Gc/t2+v7

I'm speaking of where metabolism takes place, rather than where the fat will specifically disappear to.

The more lean muscle mass you have, the more fat you will burn, because the body uses it there, right?

17 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-01-30 05:38 ID:kU8O1MBP


Oh, true.

Just so you know, muscles are heavier than fat, so if you start losing muscle and getting chubby, you're losing weight.
This thread reminds me, I've got to get back into the gym.

19 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-02-09 06:03 ID:r0fLsdY8


No, you're just getting more fat than muscles, therefore gaining (useless) weight.

20 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-02-10 01:43 ID:g91C11x3


I keep hearing about losing muscle. Is this even true to any noticeable degree? I know muscles atrophy when not in use, but I don't know if they just get weaker or actually decrease in size to any extent.

Anyway, I've just started hitting up the gym again for the to be strong bigger. And running days I don't gym for fat losing trying to. Mlep.

Strong muscles embiggen the smallest man.

Hehehe. Embiggen.

School kicked me hard in the nuts, so I haven't been working out lately. Gotta do something about that.

What would be the best and least dangerous way of strengthening one's back, especially the lower back?

30 Name: L : 2006-07-01 00:42 ID:uQY0ir7G

Eat proteins. And by proteins I don't mean fucking all-you-can-eat meat buffet but healthy proteins like eggs, for example. Or just protein powder.

On topic: I was weighing 98kg when I was 15 years old - definitly too much. Then I started eating more healthy and lifting weights. Now I'm almost 18(just one more month), am 1,85m tall, weigh 84kg and got a more or less nice build.
Weight lifting seriously does help you, but I probably won't go any farther. Being ripped is one thing, being bulky another. An athletic build is the best of them all

31 Name: Love fiasco-guy : 2006-09-03 10:09 ID:wTeZd5oT

Eat proteins, but more or less raw proteins. Eggs, cooked(not fried)white chicken meat, protein powder etc.
Lie flat on your stomach, hook your feet on some couch or something and raise your upper body until your head looks straight ahead. Hold the position for 2 seconds, then lie on the floor again. Repeat.
Man, that's my life story too. Weighed 98kg when I was 15, started eating less and working out, lost weight, then got fatter again, started working out and eating healthier again, and last month fell in love and lost 12kg and weighted 80kg then. Now I''m 18, weighing 83kg by 1,86m height and I'll start working out again because I still have unneeded fat on my legs and ass :(

get a swiss ball and do a wrestler's bridge on that.
if it's done properly, it's a pretty safe way of strengthening your lower back and the rest of your core.

I started doing back bends in January and I can rave to the world about them. The rush of holding a back bend for 10 minutes is truely a great feeling. I eventually want to end up this flexible ('A`) - http://www.therubberboy.com/pages/SSbackbend.html

Say What ? Unless you were doing an aerobic program or following a diet thats very unlikely, after all weight lifting only adds to your weight 'cause muscles are heavier then fatness...

OP here.

Since November, I finished college and moved out of the house - and I've lost a lot of weight as a result, since I can control what kinds of food come into the house. Lots and lots of running... Went from 205 to 180 over the last 6 months. I'm trying to get started back lifting again... want to put some of that weight back on in muscle before I really hit the running hard again when spring comes.

Keep going, everyone!

so aside from eating a lot of protien, how else do I help gaining weight? do I have to work out or will that slow things down?

36 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2006-12-26 12:56 ID:atzWNNIN

Work out regularly, train all muscle groups, eat protein-rich food and give your worked-on muscles at least a day to regenerate.

Bodybuilding is men's equivalent for anorexia. Think about it.

On one level I can see where there are similarities, when you think about a society that's obsessed with physical appearance, and about the gender roles we're all programmed with since birth.

Anorexia, on the other hand, tends to be kind of unhealthy and people even die from it. Bodybuilding--if, IF you resist the temptation to use steroids--is healthy exercise.

I started a month ago, april 11th to be exact, and my gains have been epic. I train upper body on mon, tue, fri and legs on wednesday and thurs. No protein shakes too.

I'm starting to train abs and I already see visible lines in just 2 weeks of ab training. The swiss ball definitely helps and you really feel a great burn with this ball.

On everything, the machines, dumbbells etc. I do 3 sets, 12 for easy sets, 10 for moderate, 8 for hard. Proper form, slow movements.

42 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2011-05-23 07:41 ID:ybXURadW

BTW I go 5 days a week, 3 hours a day. 2 hours of weights, 1 hour of cardio.. starting to use HIIT nowadays.
