Any of you guys are out in the Valley (Los Angeles County). Because some of this training gets fricken boring, especially running.

If anyone would like to partner up, would be awesome.

I suggest for those that can not get thier body fat done ( Most gyms do it for free if you ask them ) Post your measurements, waist neck , arm upper legs.. it will give you some good starting points.. to give you an idea

on my bodyfat check revealed of that 270 pounds... 188 pounds is muscle and like 80 pounds of fat... so as I work out.. my muscle weight should go up... my fat weight should go down... though my overall bodyweight will not chage as drasticly..

Actually that 188 pound is (mostly) water, bone and muscle.

Have never been so motivated to get back into fighting shape as I am right now. STarting to do 2 workouts a day, better diet, going to also hit the mma studio again.

my exercise routine:

1) 5 mile mma sprints.... run at normal pace, then occasionally burst out for 30 or more seconds then back to normal pace.
2) 3 sets of crunches and 3 sets of leg lifts
3) 3 sets of pullups
4) 3 sets of reverse pushups? (off the bench backwards, moving up and down)
5) 3 sets of burpies (army term)
6) 3 sets of shaolin kicks (kneel, get up, kick... repeat with other leg)
7) 3 sets of weights, nothing too heavy to keep punching speed.
8) speed bag and B.O.B. bag workout usually 15 mins each.
9) occasional sparring with my roomie in BJJ and muy thai mix.
10) Jump Rope - 3 sets.

This routine has always worked for me in the past and is starting to kick me back into fighting shape really fast. Hopefully it can help other folks too.

I have a 6-pac pretty much no matter what/how much i eat (obviously if i eat a whole load of chocolate cake then it becomes more of a 4-pac, but stil), however my cardio isn't very good and is probably worse than many people who have larger stomaches than myself lol.

Is this a good/bad thing does anyone now?

Thanks.

You can have good muscle tone but bad cardio... sounds like you do lots of lifting.. start a cardio program... you should get results pretty quick.. I suggest some sort of interval training..

To be honest i don't really do any lifting, but probably do 100-200 push-ups per day, and 50 sit ups once a week maybe if i can be arsed.

how is everyone doing... Right now I personally have a case of muscle soreness... espically in my calves.. I blasted them hard the other day... I'll admit I am shooting myself in the foot with my diet.. I have changed it only slightly.. espically when I should know better being a former dietician and all.... But how are the rest of you doing... Any good results so far.. lets celebrate some successes.. has anyone hit any pitfalls and struggling... that might need some help... let us know lets see if we can help...

ok... well I have gained about 6 pounds... i am not overly worried cause I feel better over all, I can seem my muscle tone and size improving... but at the same time I am worried... I really am not interested in competing in the Super heavey division... as I am going to be a small guy for that group granted overall I may be faster and more flexible... but who knows... I think I do need to work on my diet better

down to 182 pounds now. Dont see myself ever getting a six pack or whatever body where muscle shows up, I just like mayo too darn much to keep my body fat % down.

So lost about 5 pounds a week just working out 5 days a week with routine i posted earlier. Probably starting to level off now.

if you start leveling off thats a good time to switch up your game plan... different exercises.. different types of exercises and such...

7/23/08 7:23:19PM
Thats a good point Don. I just dont know what exercises to try.

My usual routines do kind of stick to the basics. Jogging, jump rope, pushups, lunges, pull-ups and weights.

Anything you can recommend?

Ok if you have been doing mainly body weight training I might suggest doing some tradational weight training... maybe take some arobics classes or a yoga class mixed in... I started off doing about 2 weeks of tradational weight training.. now the last week or so I have been doing bodyweight resistance stuff...

Well, let's see here. I'm doing "ok" I guess.
I slacked off on my diet and workout for about a week because I went on vacation, still having trouble staying with my diet, my weakness is chinese food, eat alot of it and love it. But when I started I was 198, now I'm down to 185. Hoping to cut quite a bit more, just to hard for me to do this damned diet!

yea I thik Diet is the hardest part of anything... So much fast and easy food.. the trick is to try and go for the healthier choices.. I try to go more towards salads and such, wheat breads when ever possible.. low or non fat toppings... physically I am doing good.. food wise not so much... or rather not as good as I should be...



Anyone else who is trying doing anything or have anything to report...???
