5:30? Ouch......

5 miles? Damn.....

I guess I will never have a V. Gimme 500 yards sometime around noon, if I feel like it, then maybe I might be in.

I have no problem with the food though. Guess that is the thing keeping me from being a total fatass.

Thats some serious discipline.

Do you prep your food each night or at the begining of the week? My typical prepped lunches are a can of tuna mixed with lemon juice, pepper and relish served on a whole grain english muffin.

Next week im going to make an attempt at going to my gyms 515am p90x class. I want my six pack back more than anything else right now. Im 200lbs now, and am wanting to get back down to 175.

Can you describe that decline bench broomstick twist a bit better? Are you sitting up with your abs flexed and twisting?

Hook legs and sit on decline bench. You should be at a 65-75 degree angle to the floor. Rotate at the waist 45 degrees to the left, back to center then to the right. Keep back straight.

Thats what i thought, i normally use a 15lb medicine ball, but i think you probably get better extension with the broomstick.

so what you are trying to say is you are a musclehead that could kick the shit out of Fleaman, awesome :D

you know, I used to try and do a routine like that, but all I did was gain more weight from it. Now I just try to run at least 2-3 miles per day at the gym, and alternate my weights/body part during the week.

well, since the just worked out thread is still being held hostage along with the rest of the bizarro forum, I'd like to report that I was at the gym today. Did not do anything as intense as Turtle, but I did enough....my jelly belly is even starting to firm up (not just from today - duhhh) :D

Genetics has something to do with it. Even when I was 145 lbs and worked out 6 days a week, I had no more than a 2-pack.

Um, yeah. I'm starting Nutrisystem tomorrow to try to drop the 6 or 7 lbs I put on over the last 6 months. I just don't have that kind of dedication. Or time.

Nutrisystem to drop 6-7 pounds? Wouldnt it be better used if you were trying to drop 25-30lbs?

When I was playing Rugby, in college and then later in the Navy, I was working out regularly too but, when I stopped playing I packed it on. That and the fact that my hip is kaput doesn't help either.

This year I planning to get my hip fixed, once that's done I'm starting a routine again. I really hate my present condition.

I can't wait that long. :icon_mrgr I'd rather go on it now to avoid becoming a fatty pig fatty, instead of getting that fat. 25-30 lbs would require a new wardrobe, and I don't have that kind of money.

I will also being going to the gym (30 minute routine) & doing 8 Minutes in the Morning. Nutrisystem will keep me from over eating on a daily basis.

Yeah, I NEED to lose weight. Most of my pants don't fit me anymore. I wanna go back to the gym, but I havent worked in like 2 months, so I dont have the money to join, which sucks. It's too cold to go out and walk, too, so that sucks. I guess all I can do is play Wii Sports.

pushups, situps, pushups, situps, pushups, situps, pushups, situps, pushups, situps, pushups, situps, pushups, situps.

(repeat)

I usually do 25 of each every other day. Or well, maybe twice a week lately. It works, but I should start running or riding more often.. perhaps judo & stuff that will stretch my stringy as out. Feels like my strength doubles when I'm well stretched. (duh)

not many people do.. yeah I'm sure they could 'make' the time, but they either can't, don't or really don't have it.

I don't think it's necessary to run every day anyhow.
