Exercise and Fitness Thread

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous Discussion' started by DarkGengar, Dec 18, 2012.

    I didn't see an exercise or fitness thread here, so I thought I'd make one.

    I've been exercising for a year now, and I'm in the best shape of my life. I haven't felt this good in years.

    I thought it'd be interesting to get a discussion going and to see how many people here go to the gym or live a clean and healthy lifestyle.

    I guess we can discuss this thread now :)

    PS. If this thread exists, feel free to delete it moderators.

    There was a thread.. it died in page 2 and beyond of SPPF misc

    I like topic about wellness of the body too. I'm new here and this site really captured my interest because I love Pokemon. I exercise not that often but I ensure that I always eat nutritious foods.

    i'm going to mitigate this by bulking up BECAUSE OF a course next semester. same department in which i took a skydiving course a couple years ago.

    i love that entire goddamn department sometimes.

    I had a buddy who was a fitness nut so I hit the gym with him regularly, I was in the best shape of my life, but when I moved that all changed.

    I have never been one to exercise. I was underweight as a kid and when I hit my 20s it caught up with me, I've had a gut ever since.
    I keep saying that I need to lose it, but I can never stick to an exercise regiment.
    I will start exercising and then something will throw me off track and it comes to a full and complete stop.

    Now I don't expect any sympathy or anything of the sort, but I know my flaws.
    What I could use is an exercise buddy or someone for moral support.

    probably because nobody here takes fitness seriously

    I love to exercise. Weight lifting is my favorite thing to do. freaking love lifting man
    I do Powerlifting in High School, which is like, literally competitive weight lifting. The lifts you do at the Powerlifting Meets are Squat, Bench, and Deadlift. My first meet of the season (senior year btw) is sometime in January.
    If you lift frequently then you'll know what a Max is so I'll post my most recent numbers:

    Bench- 250
    Squat- 340
    Deadlift- 350
    Power Clean- 215
    these are all "raw" numbers, meaning I didn't use a Bench Suit, Squat Suit, or Knee Wraps to aide with my lifts.

    hopefully more people post in this thread because i enjoy talking about fitness and lifting man i love it

    I'm trying to get myself into a routine for sprints and various other workouts in between the days I go to the gym to practice my gymnastics. It's difficult to find the right balance because gymnastics requires basically every muscle in the body, and if I over-work something I'll be uncomfortably soar and unable to accomplish much. My legs are still stronger than my lungs though, so I can do difficult sprints to strengthen my lungs, without straining my legs too much.

    Also, I love gymnastics. Never had more fun in a sport since martial arts.

    i don't understand?
    but anyways, the classes i am taking tends to drain my energy and time just to get the information down LOL

    Good luck. We'll see when this thread dies again lol. the old thread got up to page 2 or 3 before it dies

    what's a power clean?

    also, threads like this always surprise me... I never think weight lifting and pokemon go together

    How to Power Clean
    Firstly, this is Misc, a place on SPPf where pokemon discussion actually does not occur. (because it can be done on other parts of the forum newsflash!!!1)
    and why not? you don't have to be a skinny physically inept nerd to play pokemon. that is a very naive generalization you have going there

    true. but i get the impression that i will only meet people who are into both physical activity and pokemon are only on the internet, hahaha.
    *not true in RL, at all lol

    There's like no iron at home lol. I'll have to make do with something

    Bodyweight exercises are good for stamina, but free weights are better for strength. However, with lack of other options, bodyweight exercises does suffice as substitute for short periods.

    I train 2 hours per day - work out for one hour in the gym at morning and swim in the pool for about one hour at afternoon. I have been exercising this way since March of this year.

    I'm in the best shape of these years, but it's still a lot of work yet. I want to obtain more results.

    I was about to make a similar thread soon, but you made it first! Nice thread, dude! :D

    I mainly do cardio and stuff. My sister is overweight so I'm trying to get her into working out now. We've only worked out once together so far though. Luckily, there's a break coming up for her and I'll probably get her moving throughout those days.

    I lift weights six days a week for around half an hour each day. I've been using this schedule for a couple months now, but I've been lifting for close to two years. What bothers me is that while I have built some muscle, it's not even close to how much most people who lift have. My guess is because my body is not fully grown yet and I'm still relatively young, so hopefully I will start to bulk up.

    Also, does anyone know if it is true that your growth is stunted by weight lifting? I used to be pretty tall, but ever since I started lifting my growth has gradually decreased and I am now of average height, but again, it may just be because I haven't finished growing yet.

    What muscle gain you get from the training mainly depends on what exercises you do, how you perform those exercises, how heavy weights you lift, what and how much you eat and genetics. With unfavorable genetics, it doesn't matter how ideal your training is, you still won't get as strong as those with better genetics.

    The growth is not stunted by weight lifting, but your spine can be slightly compressed after a few years of doing squats, resulting in getting slightly shorter.

    Believe it or not I actually take exercise pretty seriously. I run about 5miles on average a day excluding weekends where I may or may not take a break. I think the primarily reason I do not see big muscle mass gains is because I eat so much carbs and probably need to intake more protein. Even with bumping up the weights curling and the like have physically only left me more toned.

    People tell me more reps for tone and more weight for mass. Idk if that holds true for everybody though.
