Health & Exercise Thread! 2.0
since no one is ever on this forums i guess its all me.
so i recently realized that i was doing the hiit training by the wrong 2:1 ratio , i feel really stupid now i was doing 2:1-Rest:Work ratio although its the other way around.Also my legs are aching like a mofo due too all the jump rope i've been doing without much break.
so anyone still working out or am i alone now ?

Looks like a solid routine.
Regarding the chest, try incorporating some dumbbells and incline/decline exercises. I would suggest trying out Flys, Incline Press, Decline Pushups and Chest Dips.
I train 5 days a week.. But I'm more bodybuilder training that fitness. Managed to break my record for Bench Press max the other day though 145KG For 10 reps. Chuffed with that tbh....
I am just over 5"7 and at the start of last year i weighed over 17st (238lb).
I believe I got to that weight because I never exercised and i over ate.
I got sick of being overweight so i decided to do something about it. First thing i did was cut out junk food like fizzy pop,sweets,crisps and I also ate very little white bread.
I also started walking to college instead of getting lifts from my parents.
I now weigh around 186lb and plan to get to 154 before Easter or Summer.
I have started doing some weight lifting recently too. Also my right arm is stronger than my left and this can make weight lifting difficult does anyone know how to fix this?
I'd never do more reps on one side of my body than another, All experienced lifters will tell you this. I'm not saying your not experienced MC, It's only natural its weaker than your right. It will even itself out and you will be fine. Dont train one side of the body more than another....
IS there any benefits to doing situps when i'm overweight? If so what are they.
For chest exercises I say stick with a bar and train for strength with reps of 6-8. Any less will cause the stronger side to take over and any more will cause growth which can lead to a greater imbalance. Don't go to failure the bigger side takes over once again.
Cable crossovers with only one side works well. Just do a crossover with the left hand and then the right hand.
Yeah it really isn't acne, but its very similar. But thanks for the input man, appreciate it.
Alright I dunno if anyone can answer this question, but I'll give it a shot.
So I workout about 3-4 times a week actively, and at one point I started to use protein drinks. Well I noticed that I started to get real bad acne from them, and it completely destroyed my neck. Well I wasn't sure that they came from the drinks so I started again, and again came the acne. Anyone know why this happened? Is there some special ingredient that I could be allergic to?
That would be my guess, but since you said the shakes causes them I don't know. Maybe the drink helped your body produce more testosterone? Also, I think an allergic reaction would cause a rash or bumps but not true zits.

but what if i don't really work till failure rather do the wights at higher intensity then will working one side more than the other be a problem ? as I'm only taking one side to failure & the other side is quite bigger(right arm) than the other arm(left arm) or the fact still stands about the overall imbalance being created.
also since the p90x topic cropped up again i'll tell you guys about my experience with it not that i've practiced the whole thing but i tried doing the yoga dvd thinking that it might be a little calmer then ab ripper x(which is what i did prior to trying the yoga) but man was it intense & a bit too much if you ask me.(i was like wtf isn't yoga supposed to be calming & **** ?)
@ F34R keep us updated on how that goes
also anyone jump rope ?
i do it by-weekly as my ankles start to kill me , but in retrospect its all ways worth it.

I'm about to start a blog for weight loss with only using good eating habits and using dance central and the fight lights out...
Cool, Look forward to it. Be sure to update us here too....
I exercise both mornings and evenings 5 days a week.
Mornings for 20 mins and afternoons for 40mins.
I took a break over Xmas which i am still trying to work off.
