Decided to go for a longer run this afternoon. Ran about six and a half miles within an hour. After running so much at the gym this winter I'm finding that my indoor mile time and outdoor mile times are quite different. But the struggle is what makes it fun, I suppose.
90 Days are done and also the photo shoot is done!!
Don't stop no matter what even a small progress can change you one day. After 90 days I did a photoshoot by myself to show my progress in 90 days time. I started with 23% body fat and I couldn't even do 10 pushups or run more than 2km 90 days ago and the last 30 days I was eating junk food and smoking shisha everyday just to show people that its not your diet that is stopping you. I didn't lift any weights so it was even harder for me to reach this level in just 90 days.
Very nice work, bro. Keep it up. :]
Nicely done Brebaz !
So how many pushups and how far can you run now and your bodyfat after 90 days if I may ask? =].
I hate to be the guy who asks what I'm sure you've been asked numerous times... But how exactly did you do it, Brebaz?
What stops people most of the time is a lack of persistence and dedication. You stuck to your guns for 90 days without giving in and you achieved great things. That is what you can take away from all this and that is what you can say to people to inspire them. Most people work out for a month and take a 3 month break... work out for a month... and take a 3 month break... etc. If people day in and day out put their nose to the grindstone and just dedicated themselves for an entire year, they'd change their lives forever. But a large majority of people don't make it that long. You gotta dig deep and find that inner lion... that inner beast... and attack this crap with every fiber of your being. It's not some temporary fix... it requires a change in lifestyle and everyone has the potential inside them... they just gotta let it out.
Here's to another 90 days, bro. Cheers.
I was doing that for the past 30 days as an experiment to see what i can achieve while doing what i was doing. It all comes to your hard work and the goals you want to achieve.
I understand. If people get overwhelmed with too much when they're first starting out, they're likely to just give up.
Okay, guys. I finally got my bench and my bar. I have 300 plus the 45 pound bar. I haven't lifted in years and The last time I've done It I was doing 100 plus pounds. So now I've got back in It and I noticed that I was really tired after doing about 10 reps. I had like a 120 on the bar and I was like dang I'm out of shape :snicker So my question to you guys Is should I do low weight with higher reps or lower reps with more weights?
Also, what food should I eat and workout style should I use to get Bruce Lee's body?
If you mean light or heavy weights, it all depends on the person. The poundage i use is good for me, but you may not need to lift as heavy to get the same results.Quote:
My final question is what do you define as low weights vs high weights?
Just make sure you don't go too heavy that it affects your form and you're straining....... and not too light either. You really want to hit those fibers good. I would say go with a weight that you can do about 10 reps. Those final 1 to 2 reps you should really have to work at. As you get stronger you can up the weight and mix up the rep range/sets however you see fit. Just works towards a goal but make sure it's realistic and attainable.
Don't forget to throw in some cardio a few times a week if you need it.
What kind of equipment do you have? Do you just have the bench and Olympic barbell and plates?
How accurate is accu-measure caliper? I took some measurement a little bit ago and i checked this (http://www.linear-software.com/online.html) to calculate. Here's the result ---5.84%---
It's accurate within a few percentage points.
The most accurate body fat test is DEXA (Dual-Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry). If you really want to know exact percentages, this is the way to go.
It's a pretty common procedure... you can probably get it done at a local hospital. Most people get it done to test for osteoperosis, but athletes obviously get it done to determine exact body fat percentage. The calipers should be fairly accurate, though. Their accuracy is increased based on your experience and whatnot. I would take measurements a few times then average them together, if anything.
I would only get it done if it's something you absolutely need to know, because it will cost money. Might be a good thing to do at least once... such as the day you do a caliper reading. It will determine how accurate your measuring is.
I took the measurement 4 times just to be sure I'm not doing it wrong, watched a couple of videos on youtube and did it again just to be more sure and the reading was almost exactly the same!
I don't really want to spend money just to check something like my body fat lol! the caliper is cheap and enough for my use.
Like I said, there's a few percentage point discrepancy, but they're fairly accurate. It gets a little hard to measure though when you're extremely low body fat and the skin is really taut and hard to get a measurement from... not that it's a bad thing. :]
There's this stereotype that all forum-goers are a bunch of lazy, overweight nerds ... and then you see pictures of brebaz and x6Teen.
What I'm trying to do at the moment is, when time permits, do 30 minutes to an hour of cardio one day, and then 30 minutes to an hour of weightlifting the other. I've been attempting to do that as many days of the week as possible, usually ending up about 5-to-6 days per week. I still need to get better at getting together an organized regime, though.
Although I've gone a long way in achieveing my first real goal in fitness (lose a ton of weight, second goal would be to add muscle mass :)), I sure have been slipping over the past week or so. I tend to do this every other month. grr
It's mostly to do with food lol. Sadly I have been unable to convert members of my family to be vigilant in what they eat and how much they eat which means there is always a healthy amount of crappy foods in the house :lol:. Feels kinda lonely making my own stuff to eat and ignoring all the sugary and fatty delights in every corner of our kitchen all the time. So in a sense, for the past week or so I've let myself 'go' :(. Lol
Fuck it though, I'm back to me starting today. I do wish I could have inspired my fam a little bit though considering I've lost 70+lbs. My parents especially, both of whom are overweight and diabetic
