I am really bad about talking in this kind of topic, however I will try my best. I live in the area of Berlin, NJ. I am having trouble of finding a buddy. Sometimes I get "I am too busy", "I don't have time", or any other dishonest reply. I really don't know what to do. I have been doing the Basic Bodyweight Workout for a while. I would like to have a buddy to work things out for me and try to commit to speed up the process a little bit more. I have not been getting any other help at all in my life other than the ones who do their job. It has been hard for me to do things by myself. If there is anyone around my area, feel free to. If not, well, I tried...
Everyone looking for a great way to lose weight, or the newest quickest way to burn fat. Tricks, tips etc. Well this works. GUARANTEED. Its all about intensity and progression. Its not about the time you are in the gym, on the bike, at the track, its the effort you put in. Thats why this workout REALLY WORKS. Instead of short bursts of intensity, followed by long bouts of rest, its the opposite. You are, or at least should be, always going about 90% whatever your ninety percent is. You also can never really out grow this workout because as you progress physically you simply go faster, push yourself harder, get in more repetitions and burn more. I gave this a shot because I dont like boring steady state cardio, and even as I had not changed my diet or really tried to lose weight, I lost 9lbs in about 2 weeks. Note: You want to seriously do the warm up and stretching properly and make sure you make any necessary adjustments to the exercises if you have any nagging injuries. Have padded shoes, towel and water. ITS GO TIME! You can stream Insanity on Demand here: https://club.teambeachbody.com/sign-up/?upgrade=true&redirect=%2F
Hi! First of all, thanks for checking out my thread! I'm 100% new to all of this, so I really hope I'm doing it right! A little about myself - I am 24, a mom of 2 (6 year old and 6 month old!), a wife of an amazing husband, and a full time office-job-glued-to-my-desk worker haha . All-in-all I have about 60lbs to lose (about 25lbs is baby weight, the rest I had prior), but for me it's not the scale that I'm worried about. I want to look and feel amazing. Right now, it's the opposite! I'm addicted to sugar (no joke) and I'm tired of being a slave to food. If I can break my sugar addiction I believe I'll have no issue eating healthy and losing this weight! I would love some tips/pointers from those who have been there are broken the addiction! I really hope to complete this challenge and feel motivated to reach my goals! Speaking of, here they are: 1) Main Quest (Long-Term Goals): To lose weight, lose fat, and gain some awesome muscle. One day I want to be able to lift major weight like Staci! 2) Smart Quests (Short-Term Goals): 1) Exercise at least 4 days a week! 2) Give up chocolate/sweets (my kryptonite!) for at least 2 weeks of the 6 week challenge! 3) Eat completely healthy (breakfast, snacks, lunch & dinner) at least 3 days a week! 3) Life Quest: To do something nice for someone else at least once a week! 4) Motivation: My family! I want to be a good example for my children, and I want to look amazing for my husband and be happy with myself!
I've been focusing on slimming down to a solid base for the last 6-8 weeks, and now I get to start adding some muscle! Here's the quick synopsis with details to follow: Goal 1 - Weigh more at the end of the challenge than I do at the start. [+4 CON] To accomplish this goal, I will follow the Surge phase of the Engineering the Alpha program, focusing on lactic acid based exercises to stimulate Growth Hormone and eating at a surplus on training days. I started this phase at the end of the last challenge, so I'll be completing Weeks 2-4. Based on a calorie surplus on training days and a deficit on non-training days, I should be at +1000 calories a week for 3 weeks. If I'm tracking correctly and the laws of thermodynamics hold, that would equate to just under 1 pound (3500 calories). I have a feeling my tracking won't be that spot on and I'd be happy with extra weight, as long as it doesn't affect Goal 2. Grading: A - more than 2 pounds gained B - 1-2 pounds gained C - less than 1 pound gained D - zero weight gain F - weigh less than when I started Goal 2 - Have a lower body fat percentage at the end of the challenge than I do at the start. [+3 CHA +1 CON] To accomplish this goal, I will follow the Complete phase, Weeks 1-3 (with Week 4 falling between challenges). The focus will be on burning some more fat and "completing" my new chiseled physique... I will be eating at a surplus 3 days a week and at a deficit 4 days a week, with a sum total deficit of 400 cals/week for the last 3 weeks of the challenge. Grading: A - more than 2% reduction in body fat B - 1-2% reduction C - less than 1% reduction D - no change to body fat percentage F - higher body fat percentage than start of challenge Goal 3 - Focus on my lagging features 3 times a week. [+4 DEX] I've managed to drop some inches from my midsection during the last challenge, but I'm still not seeing/feeling much definition in my core. I'm going to try and work on my abs/core by doing some beginner Pilates or Tim Ferriss' 6-Minute Abs from Four Hour Body. I also want to give some extra attention to my arms and chest as they seem to lag behind. This will probably be suspended flyes or extra pull-ups. Grading: A - 18 sessions B - 15-17 sessions C - 12-14 sessions D - 6-11 sessions F - 5 or fewer sessions Goal 4 - Complete 3 activities from the Geek Dad Guide to Weekend Fun. [+2 CHA +1 WIS] My goal is to complete at least 3 weekend activities from the Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun with my kids. This is a rollover from last challenge. My kids are still pretty young (2 and 5), so I'm limited on how many of the activities are age-appropriate for them, but I think I can find 3 good ones. Currently considering: Superhero ABC book using construction paper, glue sticks, and pics from the internet Geeky Art Prints with shaving cream and food coloring Alien Drums with various lengths of PVC pipe See the World From the Sky with balloons and a Flip video camera Grading: A - 3 activities B - 2 activities C - 1 activity F - 0 activities New Life Goal - Break my iPhone addiction!
