its time....to post!!!
just got out the gym i was in for about and hour and 15 minutes
did a 5 minute jog before workout.
Squat 3 x 5 of 175lbs
Glute Ham Raises 3 x 10 w/(25lbs)
Bent over row 4 x 6 of 100lbs
Barbell Curls 3 x 8 of 55lbs
Rotary Calf Raises 3 x 15 of 170lbs
I dislike the bent over rows, maybe i was doing them wrong, so I'm going to you tube it. Mood was great, I still have a lot of energy left, but i have a history of over training, but i am a bit sore lower body a tad bit though, after the work out i did a 3 minute fast pace jog on the treadmill
btw im thinking about buying that fish oil stuff, is there a specific brand i should get or avoid?
03-31-2009, 09:41 PM
25 minutes bycycle
5 minute jog
then 6 minute speed interval 60 seconds speed running then 60 second jogging
btw would it be bad if i switch the bent over row to using Dumbells???

Just wondering why you're doing any cardio. Are you trying to gain or loose weight?
03-31-2009, 10:56 PM
nope im trying to lose those love handles actually i really dont know if its fat i did a bf test and came to be 6.2% but i want to still be able to run and be in shape cardio wise and build speed
was going to just add cardio(not so intense) on either tuesday and thursday or both and sprints on saturday
03-31-2009, 11:32 PM
Cardio is def a good thing in general, but I have to avoid it if I'm trying to gain. 6.2% is REALLY lean man..... I can't imagine that % and having love handles, sure it was measured correctly?
04-01-2009, 12:22 AM
yea heres some pics
04-01-2009, 12:33 AM
btw should i raise weight throught the sets or keep them the same and then when that workout comes back around the next week raise the weight?
04-01-2009, 03:30 AM
Love handles? I see no love handles. I do see an hourglass figure though... (I know this isn't bb.com but seriously no homo)
BTW 100lbs lost, wow!
04-01-2009, 08:35 AM
Still don't see any love handles. Have you considered putting on some solid weight? And I'm not so sure you're at 6%.... How about eating more (protein)? Do you lift much?
04-01-2009, 10:35 AM
It will take awhile for you to get used to the bent rows. Just keep at it and eventually it will come easy to you, trust me. For back width, there is bent rows trump them all IMO, that and chins.
If you trying to bring your athletic conditioning up, I would keep up with the HIIT and really try to push yourself. You really have no love handles. Its just your shape. Once you bring up your muscle mass, especially your back width, the rest will take care of itself.
What does your diet look like right now?
04-01-2009, 11:50 AM
thanks guys, btw i have a lot of loose skin, i used to do nothing but cardio so this lifting thing is new, to day i put in my workout B
diet mmm don't really keep track i know i eat a lot (300 Dollars by myself a month) through out the day i do not have a job as of now and I'm in the process of getting one this week so the first thing im buying is fish oils and a whey protein supp.
BTW should raise the weight through out the sets or keep them same weight then when the next week approaches i raise the week such as
week one: Bench 165 3 x 5
then week Two: Bench 175 3 x 5
04-01-2009, 12:44 PM
Keep the weight the same then raise it next week. You really need to keep track of what you eat and be CONSISTENT with it. you'll never know what works and what doesn't as far as macro breakdown if you don't write it down. You just need to eat and lift heavy. I've noticed a trend of 150-170 lb guys wanting to get "ripped". You lost your weight now is the time to build muscle, when you have a solid muscle base then you can cut. HEAVY WEIGHTS + QUALITY FOOD + CONSISTENCY +TIME = A BIGGER YOU

[/u]thanks guys, btw i have a lot .....maybe some -not a lot .....of loose skin, i used to do nothing but cardio so this lifting thing is new, to day i put in my workout b

week one: Bench 165 3 x 5
