  1. Update: I've now lost 140 lbs. I weigh about 138. WOOOT. How's everyone else's weight loss going?
  2. Hi Guys *waves* This woot is for myself and everyone else who's observing Ramadan. For those of you who don't know - Muslims fast for 16-21 hours a day (depending on which part of the world you live) with NO WATER and NO FOOD. I've been able to make it to the gym and 1) lift heavy 2) do cardio 5-6 days a week while fasting. I'm proud of myself.
  3. Hello, hello - As a Muslim, I can say this is completely safe and awesome. Our elder ladies put it in their hair to cover up the grey. I love Henna. Wear it every chance I get. Temporary tattoos FTW. PS: your hair looks awesome.
  4. So does it only have to be within the "fat burning zone?" What if you're doing fasted HIIT? Would that not help those stubborn fat spots?
  5. Diet is key here. I won't speak to the workout, because those guys ^ have done a great job at it already. Make sure you eat clean and track how much you're eating. With diet alone, you can lose. Combined with the workout you have laid out, you're gonna be in shape in no time. Good luck to you sir.
  6. That's always been my issue. Form. I originally launched into Stronglifts without checking my form. Had to backtrack and do it over again. I only recently fixed my form on box jumps too. My goal is to master lots of different bodyweight movements with good form. Thanks again for your help.
  7. Nuts, nut butters, dense in calories and in fat.
  8. I think you might be right Vintage. In Crossfit, a lot of times burpees are done for time and a lot of the time, my form falls apart. I will try to do them slower and practice them properly for our next go. Thanks! Templar, yes, I'll start foam rolling before my workout. I don't adequately stretch out my back before launching into the workouts. Thanks.
  9. Yes, take a break from the diet. Increase your carb intake (sweet potato etc) and eat at maintenance for a little while. I'm in the same boat as you, but I've been stuck for about 5 months. As of last Wednesday I ditched paleo completely and am eating at my maintenance level. I've lost 2 lbs and it's not been a full week yet.
  10. I'd ditch the dvd and start with Nerd Fitness' Beginner Bodyweight Workout. Have fun.
  11. Don't know where else to put this, so will just drop it here. Every time I do burpees, I'm stiff/sore with lower back pain the next day. No other bodyweight exercise does this to me. I can do squats fine, have a pretty strong core (I'm a lifter) and can do pushups just fine as well. What can be the problem? Thanks in advance for your help.
  12. Planning to pause Stronglifts for BW Strength training. Yay or nay?

      I did the opposite lol, stopped bodyweight in exchange for SL. I'm only going back to bodyweight next summer when it's nice out.

  13. *does the happy dance* Woooo! Excellent work. Keep it up!
  14. Welcome back. Have you thought about getting into weight training? I hate cardio so launched into weight training. It kept me going back into the gym to try to beat my numbers. Starting Strength or Stronglifts is good if you want to give it a whirl.
  15. ^ she took the words from my fingertips. =( I just bought some size 8 jeans from Old Navy and they make my squat thighs (and booty) look fabulous. I usually buy stuff from Macy's and if the thighs are good, then the booty is all messed up and falling off (teehehe). Old Navy jeans are cheap, so you can go through them quick and buy several pairs.
