so the initial workout plan i had was: Mon, Wed, Fri - Full body with rest days on all the other days but im kinda getting addicted to going to the gym and doing full body so i have basically started doing full body from Monday to Friday and resting for 2 days on the weekend. Is this okay or is it too much?
I've been going to the gym twice a week for a couple of months. I don't feel like I do much but I am noticing fitness improvements. My heart rate seems lower doing the same cardio stuff and I can set the machines to slightly more weight.
Atm I do: - 120 calories in 10 mins elliptical - 1500m rowing machine - 30 reps on each upper body weight machine, increasing weight each time but I'm still at the very easy end of things - sit ups and planking at times depending on machine availability.
I'd like to add more or do things differently, but not sure what to do. Only thing I can't do is leg stuff due to a knee injury. Elliptical is fine as low impact, but I tried using weight machines for my legs and it's not good.
Also, I am slowly increasing the calories and sometimes throw in some other cardio.
Y’all ever take your pre workout and then you have to the bathroom. Then like a few minutes later your looking at reddit and next thing you know your body get the tingling sensation from the pre workout. Well it’s kinda cool and wasted, but I thought I would share my experience. 😁
Alright guys I'm homeless so I cant be too picky with my meals. The shelter I live at serves so many carbs and sugar I've gained like 30 pounds. Also I'm a recovering alcoholic so that put some weight on me too. I just got gifted a membership to the YMCA and I'm kind of lost. I havent worked out in well over a decade. I just started counting calories and I know what to do cardio wise. I've never been a weight lifter though and I'm very weak unfortunately. What are some of the easier exercises I can do around here? I'm kind of embarrassed but I have to start some where
I've been going to the gym for months and my dad says that he is mostly paying for me to be fatter (and he's saying this bullshit bc my stupid mouth told him that today, out of all month of cardio, that I lifted a weight once) and now he doesn't want to pay for the subscription again bc and I quote "I don't want to have a sack of beef walking in my house". I want to say that, out of every sport I tried, the gym was the only thing sportive I've liked and my asshole of a dad always used to oblige me to do everything I didn't like( for example when I was little he obliged me to go to some tennis courses which I hated and I had never been happy there) and now that he sees that I'm doing something that I LOVE he wants me to stop from it. I'm 15 so no job for me. And don't tell me that I should do some natural exercises home bullshit bc I've had enough of it ,I just need some help in what to do to knock my asshole dad into his senses.
BTW I've tried to tell him that by lifting weights is the best way in losing fat and losing fat is way better than losing weight and more healthy as much as physically and mentally.
Hey all, i am an intermediate lifter, its been four months that i am going to gym. My question is, is it essential to change your workout plan frequently? I mean every month or six weeks? Or we can continue same plan just increasing the weight? And if we need to change, can anyone suggest me workout plan?
