  1. Hey, as my gym membership comes to an end in little more than a month I'm becoming more positive that it would be best to get some stuff and start lifting heavy, at home. Now, are there any specifics I have to pay attention to? I've been looking around on internet shops and found some nice gear but I'm not really sure what to look out for. The bench of my desire is adjustable in 3 different heights, 4 different positions (making it suitable for flat bench press, incline and even decline! ) with a max loadabilty of 250kg (conside my bw at roughly 80kg and that's more than enough for some time).
  2. Hello there. I'm a 26yo skinny fat male, 182cm/68kg For the last many years I've been sitting in front of my PC playing games and learning programming. Since I didn't have money I couldn't afford eating burgers and stuff like that so I only ate what my mom cooked me, thanks to this I'm not overweight, but I do not have muscles while percentage of fat is pretty high I'd say (around 25%). For the last few monthes I've been doing some push ups and squats so I can do 24 push ups in a row. 5 weeks ago I was 71kg but decided to cut my calories intake (to 1500) and in 4 weeks I became ~67kg.
  3. Well, I'm still here. The weather out here has taken a turn for the awesome, and we've had a very snowy fall. I have a very interesting road ahead of me now. A substantial portion of my bandwidth is going into getting this house buying thing across the finish line. The above is the view from the window. Yes, in Colorado deer are everywhere. There are issues with the inspection, and I'm hoping the Seller can meet with me near the middle and get us across the finish line. This will be fairly vague, but I'll keep you updated with the effort. Pending any luck, I'll
  4. Have you ever taken any online fitness courses ? How much have you payed for it? Are they lacking in any way? I've been training for years and I would like to now if a project like that would work. Thank you for your nice replies.
  5. Hi, I am new to this group and had few questions that I wanted to ask. I am someone who used to be overweight and have lost considerable amount of weight recently (34kgs to be exact). I am 6ft tall and weigh about 72kgs now. However, my body is still out of shape and hence why I have decided to follow a work out plan that will help me gain strength, bring my body back in shape and build muscles. However, I cannot go to gym. It's too far way from my home and I have no time to travel that far right now. Does anyone have a specific work out plan that I can follow at home? I do have couple o
  6. I read Level Up Your Life this weekend and was super-inspired to work out. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble breathing due to a (temporary!) lung infection, so I thought about Other Quests. One of my Quests is to make my current home a place I really enjoy being in. I'm a visual artist, and it's important to me for my space to reflect/channel my sensibilities. The book talks a lot about abandoning one's possessions in order to Level Up, but my house is really important to me. I can afford it. It doesn't hold me back from the other things I want to do.
  7. Last time on the Rebellion I'm back! My last couple challenges were a struggle to get through. I was tired, depressed, and fighting to find a way to come home. My spouse and I were living 3000 miles from home, and desperately trying to figure out work/jobs to make it happen. A miracle dropped out of the sky in March and I moved back home in April. We did it guys! My spouse and I are living in a gorgeous city in Northern Ontario close to our families (3 hours drive) and both have great jobs. I can't begin to express how lucky I feel or how grateful I
  8. Hello, I've created a small site that generates a Tabata (intervals for 4 minutes) workout (based on the equipment you've selected), and then allows you to execute it with a synchronized timer (+ videos of the different exercises).Perfect for home workout with limited equipment. Check it out:http://tabatagenerator.net/

  10. I have been going to some poundfit classes at my local gym and really love the workout. Unfortunately, it only happens once per week. I want to start watching videos and doing it at home, but it's all really expensive ($20 for plastic sticks?). Does anyone know anywhere else I can get the sticks they use in class?Also has anyone else been doing this at home and how do you like it?
  11. Hi everyone, I'm new to the rebellion and was just wondering how some of you guys deal with living with family members who are well intentioned but are constantly tempting you with foods and life style choices that are completly contrary to what your trying to accomplish.
  12. I only have a single 20lb dumbbell and a single 15lb dumbbell. I also only have about 5ft by 10ft of floor space due to the fact I live in student accommodation. I can nowhere near afford a gym membership nor have the time in the day, so I workout at home. There are plenty of workout routines online, however none I have found which can be done with my limited resources. Here is my current workout. I've been doing this or slight variations of this for about 2 months, and I am starting to see my beginner gains. day 1 - biceps, triceps, chest 3 sets, 12 reps, dumbbell curls 3 sets, 12 reps, t
  13. Any good recommendations for a belt suitable for adding barbell plates to for weighted pull ups at home? Looking to purchase one because i do most of my pull up exercises at home on my iron gym and would like to start adding weight. For example, the belt that this man is wearing: http://officercandidatesschool.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/20-pullups-pull-ups-pft-usmc.jpg
  14. I'm about to move to Cardiff for university. Well, technically, 20 minutes from Cardiff in a village called Pontypridd. Has anyone got any tips for living there e.g. the best places to eat, hike etc.
  15. Hey all, A few (okay *quite a few*) months ago I bought an Olympic bar and 100kg of plates. Wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them, but decided it was an investment in my future health. However, thus far they have sat unused for one simple reason - I have no idea where to start. I'd quite like to start Here are my questions: I don't have a squat rack or money with which to buy a squat rack; so I guess I should be starting out with deadlifts? Anything else?Not buggering my back (or any other part of me, thankyouverymuch) - my brother told me there was "no way" I should consider lif
  16. So this is what the Strength Guild looks like...I like it It's been a long time since I last lifted, but I remember really enjoying it. My problem has been that we moved away from my gym, and I just haven't got one nearby that's worth the price of admission. I'm thinking it may be time to start putting together a home gym. For now, all I really want to do is deadlifts. I've got a decent bodyweight training reperatoire going, but I haven't found a good replacement for the deadlift.On top of this, i really can't afford to go all out with squat racks, bench press rigs, etc. I just want to ke
  17. Hi all, so lately I've been paralysed by choice. Reading around on NerdFitness, I've read a LOT of articles about Body Weight training. However most articles have been prefaced with something along the lines of "Want to get fit but don't have a gym membership?" which has lead to some confusion. My goal is simply to lose weight and build muscle. I have a consistent schedule, as a student and I can make time to go to the gym for 30-60 minutes 3/4 times a week. I also don't have many weights at home (Although I have a pull up bar and have all I need to easily do both the Beginner and Advanced w
  18. I'm taking this challenge off - I'll still be in and out of this thread and the forums, but I've got a lot going on, and many of my goals will be non-fitness related. This will be my log for the time being, but expect sporadic updates and no scoring this time around. Anyhow, misc stuff I'd like to do: Life stuff: ALL the homeownership stuff:Move inFix the initial stuff that needs fixing(electrical stuff, hot water heater, mold in the attic)Furnish the place, including *the mancave*Lots of other little bits and piecesOther Life StuffMove forward with enrollment in Grad SchoolSucceed with m
  19. Hey everybody! I have been lurking around for two and a half weeks now, reading up on paleo and life style changes and now it's about high time I introduce myself (very briefly) and post my current workout regiment My name is Melanie, I'm 26 (27 in a week) and originally from Germany, but moved to London 2 1/2 years ago where I work as a video game localization tester (yup, I get to test/play games for a living ^^). I have been hitting the gym at the beginning of last year for three months and was able to do some real nice improvements until life got in the way, I had to move and me and a
