Playing Basketball/ sports> Working out, you can at least have fun and not just rigorously do something over and over again.

I started running on January 15th starting at 238lbs. My biggest weight I've ever been was 245. I ran for pretty much 3 months and the last 4 weeks up until now I've been lifting and running then resting one day and starting that cycle over. So I usually run 2-3 times a weak then lift 2-3 times a weak, one day of rest after each lift.

Right now I'm exactly 191.4 my goal being 178 (60 pounds). I'm so close to my goal being just almost 13 pounds away. Just 4 weeks ago I was hanging around 200lbs. So it's very near if I put the work in. Since I started lifting my weight loss has slowed down, but that's fine as long as it's steady or I lose 1 pound every one or two weeks. But I totally see a change in my physique being accelerated.

Ask for food health? I bought 86% dark chocolate cocoa and mixed that with shelled walnuts. I snack on very small portions of those daily. That type of dark chocolate has great antioxidants and omega-3s. I also watch my portions. I eat oatmeal with milk and a juice blend in the morning that gets almost all my fiber for the day.

Both times in the heat.

Tomorrow: 20 minute Power Run (details below) on the treadmill followed by a 45 minute workout using 7-8 different weights/machines.


1st 2 minutes: 5 mph (warm up)
3rd minute: 6 mph
4th minute: 7 mph
5th minute: 8 mph
6th minute: 9 mph
7th minute: back to 6 mph
8th minute: 7 mph
etc.......
20th minute: 10 mph

It's a helluva rush and well worth it. Try it if you can



Good Thread
I personally do 30 mins on the days I run, I do speed 7 probably 15 of those 30 minutes and speed 8-10 for 5 then 10 mins of 3-4 for circuit training. Overall treadmill says I burn about 400-500 calories each time.

What were your methods for running when you first started. I'm at 240 right now so it's almost exactly where you were at the point you started. I'm hoping to stick around 200-210 by the time of my weight loss phase.

On another note, does anyone use any interested gadgets or apps when they exercise? Just read this article on Yahoo! http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged...235234324.html

There's some pretty interesting stuff that seems like it can help out a lot.

high protein foods, lots of them

Besides the usual meats a food that can really help is Tuna Fish. They are extremely high in protein and aren't unhealthy, mix it up with mayo and it tastes pretty good imo. You can also buy peanut butter with high protein, cottage cheese(tastes like shit), eggs(good source), turkey, etc..

Also be sure to get on some whey protein, drink one shake a day with milk and that should be around 28-40grams of protein alone.

30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, 2-3 miles depending upon what I felt like doing. At first I would run at 5 for 30, then upgrade to 6 for 30, 7 for 30, 8 for 30 then walk or powerwalk at 3 or 4 for 1 minute, then start the cycle over again, then at the 25 minute mark I would sprint at 10 for 30 seconds, I can now do 10 for 60 seconds. Then i would slow down the walk to 0 until 30 minutes. Usually that would equal 2.0 to 2.4 miles.

I don't use anything special. In fact I started running with regular dri-fit nike shorts and a dri-fit t-shirt with a mp3 player. Now I run with Combat Pro compression shorts and a compression t-shirt by nike, with a sweat band on my left arm. No mp3 player. I feel more comfortable running without the mp3 player for some reason.

6'1.... 155....

Swimming does that to you.
Lost a ton of fat and gained some muscle mass.

Before I began swimming last year, I was same height and 185, mostly fat.

I'm not entirely sure if I want to gain more muscle mass, though.

They did a pole and most women like the "swimmers" body. Swimming is pretty much some of the best cardio you can do. For 6'1" anything from 150 up to 180 is completely fine. If you did some muscle you could probably be 160-170.

ur crazy


milk's good post work-out? i've thought about trying a protein powder rather sparingly, i don't get a lot of protein in my diet and even though i'm not trying to bulk up, i reckon that lack is having some influence on my muscles

i've been thinking of starting to swim as well, i've got a horrible upper body physique, it'd be nice to look a little more tone

Milk's one of the best natural protein drinks you can get. Whey protein is taken from cow's milk. Main problem with it is the high calorie intake.

i've never been heavier than 155 at about 5"10 so calorie intake is not much of a worry, especially because in the summer im just naturally active. and thanks, i figured as much, knew where protein powder came from but i'm totally new to actually trying to figure out a truly healthy diet. i tend to just eat cheap which lends itself to a healthy diet regardless... just not a balanced diet. lol


another question: i'm looking for some high protein and cheap foods for my bike trip, stuff that doesn't require any heat as i won't be doing any cooking. so far my eyes are on lots of beans and i might try to suck up my age-old hatred of tuna fish and give it a shot... any other suggestions? and also general foodie tips for an extended 5-6 day trip with loads of energy being spent daily?

Some times you'll have to check labels on...

Milk
Yogurt
Certain Cheeses
peanut butter
peanuts
tofu

Chicken breast if you can get it is aewsome for protein, lean, about 30 grams in a 3.5 oz breast.

Beef jerky
cottage cheese with some type of fruit (i know people who have mixed dark chocolate with cottage cheese)
tuna
protein bars

You a fan of tofu? Relatively high protein content. Get it cubed and it might go nicely with whatever beans you carry.

Damn there's no way I can run 30 minutes straight. By the end of my last week though I was able to push out 15 minutes, might've been able to get more but my shins started to hurt like hell so I walked for a couple minutes and started up again.
