Second week of kicking the ass of my arms. 5 sets of alternating curls supersetted with hammer curls supersetted with preacher bench curls, then three sets of 20 overhead tri extensions.

For the first time since I got sick at Thanksgiving, I actually almost have an appetite

Yo i have some weird questions ...

Regarding ejaculation and test levels . I think i should do it less, but porn and boredom almost always trap me. I notice when i skip a day though i feel a bit stronger the next day .

What's the optimum frequency for highest test levels ? How much do test levels drop after ejaculation ? How long untill levels are back to normal ?
What about right after training ? I'm usually a bit horny after training, should i try to not masturbate after training ?

Or, should i just forget all about it and do whatever i want when i want to do it .

Serious question dudes, i can't find any reliable and consistent information about this.

There's a chance of PP & I doing a trip around Borneo later in the year with jungle treks and a 'climb' of Mt Kinabalu and I'd like to start training just in case. It's not hellish, about the equivalent of 900 storeys of varying gradients, but well beyond what I'm capable of atm. I'm thinking my focus needs to be cardio with some weight training but beyond that I know nothing. I'm hoping to get some advice from the gym tomorrow, but any pointers would be appreciated.

Cardio, cardio, cardio.

I climbed Longs Peak back in the spring and me being in good shape sure helped. When you have altitude to contend with cardio becomes even more important. In addition to what your normal workout should be (chest, bi's/tri's, back, shoulders, legs, etc) focus on squats and dead lifts. Basically power lifts to build strength that you're going to need on the mountain. It doesn't look like you'll need any additional equipment beyond a basic kit so training with loads really isn't an issue. If you have the chance I'd start trying to train at altitude.

Deadlifts (280lbs) and shoulder presses (120lbs) tonight...again. Getting close to being able to do my full program though and getting quite excited. Only a couple weeks to go.

Ordered my power rack a few minutes ago.




Another problem too. It's time to drop $100 for another set of 45lb plates. After three months of lifting, I've outgrown the 300lb olympic starter set that I bought on Oct 12. Hopefully I can keep making the same progress and even gain faster now with the rack and start pounding the calories. I went from a starting deadlift weight of 170 on Oct 12 to tonight doing 280lbs. Again...hopefully I can keep on going at the same rate for a while longer!

Last night was deadlifts and pull-ups after a week off, felt good again. I keep slightly losing my form but last night it was dialed in.

Tonight is shoulder night.

hey guys.. was hoping maybe someone with some experience in this could help me out a bit. going to try to make a long story short.

I joined a gym in late december. I've been going 4 times a week. I do 40-50 mins of cardio, broken up in 2 sessions with about 20-30 mins of weights in between.

I've cut out obvious bad foods and am eating better. I'm also counting calories and restricting myself to 1800 a day.

I have about 80 pounds to lose to be at an ideal weight for me (yea i'm a fatass). My previous lifestyle was do absolutely nothing exercise-wise and more or less eating way too much - explains how I got to where I am.

Anyways .. I know I haven't been doing this very long yet though I'm kind of disappointed with my results so far after my first week.

First week was great - 3 pounds.
2nd week - no change
3rd week - i have yet to weigh myself though not optimistic given last week

I figured by making such a radical change to exercise level and eating habits, plus having so much weight to lose, I would have seen some consistant weight loss, at least a pound or two each week.

I know its still really early on and its long term that matters, but its really hard to not to get discouraged. I really feel like if I went from doing *nothing* to doing what I am now, I can't help but get results - and i figured, at least at first, it would be more than what I'm getting

So my question I guess is - is it be normal so far to see so little change on the scale after changing my exercise level so much? Am I doing something wrong? Is there something I could be doing better?

After going to the gym I feel fantastic. I look forward to going now. Plus I FEEL better..less "bloated" i guess you could say, but that doesn't change what it says on the scale and I want to lose the weight.

thanks

Wal-mart has them cheap. I got a set of 45s for about 60 bucks total. Also, Craigslist is awesome, I got a power rack + 300 lbs Olympic weight set for $350. Just take someone with you just in case the dude tries to rape you.

I can't really give much advice because I can't manage to lose weight myself. I still go to the gym 4-5 times per week though and walk my dogs the same or more. I'm a lot more active and yet not losing much fat at all. I am building muscle though, that part is obvious. I've been doing this for a year and a half and I've tried various different diets, different calorie amounts, different types of workouts, etc, haven't found anything that works for me yet.

I know someone who got Walmart plates. One weighed 39lbs and the other weighed 46lbs. Blech.

I wonder if anyone on CL would buy my ****ty ass plates, I'll probably sell all 800lbs for like $75. Pieces of ****.

^ I think this is your problem. So 2x25min of cardio? Your body is barely getting warmed up in that time much less converting to burning calories. Keep what your doing but non stop cardio of 1hr minimum at a good calorie burning heart rate. Pounds should drop then.

If your main goal is to lose weight you need to figure out where your BMR sits roughly, there is an equation to calculate but i've found that the online calculators are pretty accurate.

http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/

Once you determine roughly how many calories it takes to sustain your current weight at a sedentary lifestyle any added exercise you will contribute to your caloric deficit, typically 3500 calories is one pound, so just saying if a persons BMR needs are roughly 2500 calories a day and you are actively burning another 1000 - 1500 through exercise and daily duties you have 3500 - 4000 calories to maintain weight anything under that will be a deficit, typically i would aim for around 1500 to 1800 calorie deficit a day, 2000 tops, which equates to ~10500 calories a week or 3 pounds anything more than that you risk shutting down your metabolism and entering starvation mode and your body will retain everything it can including fat , yes it will take from muscle first because fat is the last line of defence. It just takes time.

I would stay between 1800 and 2200 calories per day, lots of fibre and veggies, hold back on the heavy foods but don't deprive yourself either, dump empty calories like drinks with calories and treats like candy. Get a scale and count calories religiously, some people have food journals, never hurts to educate yourself on food habits, can show where you went wrong in the first place and teach you proper portion sizes.

Plan your meals... have a huge salad before your main meal it will help fill you up, stay active take small steps to make things more difficult, walk 10000 steps a day, they don't tell you to walk to lose weight for nothing, it works and it works well, if you are lifting weights you could be gaining muscle which weighs more than fat and can also offset any differences on the scale, and as far as the scale goes you will notice you tend to fluctuate from day to day up and down but will have a tendancy to have a low time during the week as well as a high time.

Don't get discouraged, it's all about figuring out a plan and then seeing it through and tailoring it along the way.

Personally i don't really like male oriented weight loss sites, they tend to be mostly muscle heads, if you just want to lose some weight without being arnold schwarzenegger i suggest a site like 3 fat chicks, it in my opinion is more difficult for women to lose weight with less muscle mass so when they find things that work you best listen and implement similar actions, plus they are a heck of a lot nicer.
