  1. I think i have To go super simple - drink 3 litres water each day -my gym just reopened and i will go two times a week i forget how this all works!
  2. 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).
  3. My boyfriend is 35 years old and currently 200lbs. We are beginning the keto diet this week and had recently gotten gym memberships about a month before the quarantine began. Pretend the quarantine is not going on and gyms are open. What would be a good workout plan for him at the gym for weight loss, specifically belly fat? Our gym has all the typical equipment, a pool, sauna, and track. We are not comfortable using the weights yet, but do use the ab machine. So I guess a workout that is more cardio based would help. Our current
  4. I guess I'm here. Howdy. Goals: * Home cooking 2x/day. This is to curb my eating out. I love Chick-fil-a and it's great for when I'm running late into work, but let's face it, it isn't that healthy. * Bike at least twice. Preferably the trail with my mom because then I can get some good mileage in (we did 11 just before New Year). * Lift heavy things. Even if that heavy thing is just me. Every other day minimum. Anything counts if I do 5+ reps of it. * Finish a book for once. I'd like to get in one chapter a day. This is actually doable now
  5. Hey everyone! To those who frequent my challenges, welcome back! To those who are new, welcome to my crazy rantings. Feel free to introduce yourself, I love meeting new people. I was looking over my New Year's goals from 2019. Many of them I at least attempted at some point this year. Some I realized just were not for me, others I just didn't prioritize, some I stuck to all year, and some I started and stopped throughout the year but am finally getting them to stick. I noticed that most of the weightier of my goals, the ones that should have been highest priority and we
  6. Hi there. Hope to receive some help. Will tell you my short story. I was a heavy smoker and one day I've decided to give up that habit. It was 2 weeks ago. I was doing my best to manage, but now I'm almost on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I became too nervous and too irritating. I started eating too much, but then I've realized that I didn't want to be fat and ugly. I decided to go to the gym to leave my energy and bad emotions somewhere. BUt guess what? I came to the gym with vape. One of my friends recommended it to me and I thought it would be a good alternative not to smok
  7. Joining late and fist week is not as good as I would like but here it is. My Goal = Improve fitness, reduce % body fat and get stronger Each day has tasks worth points each week I give myself a score out of a possible total of daily points.

I don't have any knowledge about shaping body so I have a partner with me who has some experience with gym and I follow his instructions ... here is what we did in the first week : day 1 : warm up - mix workout ( push ups(15 - 20 reps) , chin ups ( hardly 3) , sit ups (50 reps) , biceps , triceps , wings ). day 2 push ups , chin ups , sit ups, chest day 3: push ups , chin ups , sit ups, arms day 4: push ups , chin ups , sit ups, biceps , triceps tomorrow : shoulder here are some issues:
  9. Hi all. Callanthae here. I had a previous account on Nerd Fitness a long time ago, so I decided to skip the Level 1 Challenge and come straight to the Rangers. My challenge doesn't really have a theme, but it does have an inspiration. My favourite anime of all time, the reason I got into tennis, Baby Steps. For those who haven't seen it, Baby Steps is a tennis anime. What makes it so fantastic in my opinion is a host of factors: - Maruo Eiichiro, the protagonist, doesn't have impossible skills. He starts out as a complete beginner to the sport. While his eyesight and his studious nature are
  10. Hey guys, I'm a 32-year-old male and was wondering is it fine to take testosterone specifically for when I work out?. Hope to hear from someone soon Thanks in advance
  11. Nightcrawler_Bamff Rejoins the X-Men (Take 2) Nightcrawler: Me Rogue: Unknown (but AMAZING!) Photo: Burump (Instagram) Goal: Get back to within 2lbs of my Weight Watchers goal so I can start going to meetings for free again and stop paying for the online tools. This was the goal for the last challenge, but I fell off the wagon and ended up at the same weight I started at. I am currently 6lbs away from this goal. How: 1. Weight Watchers: WRITE IT DOWN!! I'm figuring out that if I eat something that isnt very Weight Watchers f
  12. Right now I'm unemployed and it's great! I'm finishing a semester of school, and I've got a job lined up to start on May 21, pending a physical and such on Friday morning. But until then, I've got plenty of time to get into the gym and work my butt off and prepare good meals and track nutrition. If I really buckle down, I think I can get below 240 lbs. by the start of my new job. I've also just read How to Be a Stoic by Massimo Pigliucci. I've always had a spiritual and philosophical streak in me, and I've had problems with depression, anxiety, and some anger. I often g
  13. Have you ever wondered, bodybuilders like Arnold, Flex Wheeler, Shawn Ray and many others are so committed to working out? How do they get it right every single time? Because they not only work out physically but also their mind is trained for it. They experience a feeling of euphoria. It is a feeling where the body and mind is in unison Does this seem difficult? Let me tell you, it's not. Here are 3 simple tips to getting the connection right! 1. Be positive- You can do it. Arnold Schwarzenegger always believed that the immense power came from
  14. Photo by Robert W Scott Photography on Flickr: Costume by me Photo by Robert W Scott Photography on Flickr Nightcrawler has been working hard to lose the extra pounds he had gained during his two years away from the team. Over the course of the next four weeks, he plans to drop the remainder of the excess weight and rejoin his friends at the mansion. Goal: Finally get back to my Weight Watchers goal weight! Plan: 1. Follow the Weight Watchers program: Track everything and stay within my points allowance each week.

  16. 2018 Changing Behaviors This year, my first challenge was a “what the hell am I going to do challenge”. So I threw in some stuff that I thought would be good to focus on. Those goals were good but I still felt a little lost and kept thinking about 2017 and what worked and didn’t work. 2017 was a stressful year and I let my impulses kind of run wild. I’ve always been a wants over needs type of person but have had a difficult time figuring out a way to change that. I just want to do everything now and feel silly taking it slow. Mentally, that’s what I want and I don’t want to wait to
  17. Hello There! So, I can proudly say that yesterday was my first workout (much more to come) at a proper gym. I did my routine, learning the proper forms using low weight and testing the machines. The experience was nice and I feel accomplished of doing a full hour of exercises. I started a beginners routine but, after a couple of weeks, I will build my own to cater to my necessities. Thanks for the support guys and, to all of those out there looking for an extra push to do this, I'm 272 pounds coming from 315. If I can make a difference in my life by adding good desition
  18. SORRY FOR THE LONG POST; BUT I APPRECIATE ALL INPUT ON WHAT I MAY BE DOING WRONG OR RIGHT. attached are imagines of my weight throughout the years, from 16,21,24 (current, bathroom and hiking pics) http://s1361.photobucket.com/user/ga...?sort=3&page=1i started losing weight about 3 years ago when i was at my heaviest about 290-300lbs, i dropped down too 220 and then stopped and went back up too about 250-260. i then started losing weight again (around late november) too my current weight of 205-210lbs. not 100% sure on my height its from 5'9-5'10 im not sure if im working my body too har
  19. Just like the title says, I have no idea what I'm doing. Usually I have a whole bunch of challenge ideas but I've been procrastinating and drawing a blank. Well not really procrastinating, I just have no idea what I want to accomplish this year fitness wise. This challenge I'm going to try to hit some basic goals and figure out what I want out of this year. Challenge Goals 1. Save Money - Save $85 2. No fast food - Avoid Fast Food - Will allow 5 slip ups. I'm not a saint! 3. Donate Plasma - Donate at least 4x this month. I was sick last mont

  21. So I'm sick... again... If anyone remembers from last challenge I go stupidly ill and wasn't able to do much of anything gym wise since I couldn't stop coughing and I'm also just not a jackass and I stay home when I'm sick. Nobody needs whatever plague can ever get through my usually killer immune system. I got over that bug and then a week later landed a new one! I was rocking a brutal fever and full body pain for 5 straight days. And I actually had to go to work on all of those days because my boss was away and there isn't anyone at work who can step in for me at all ever. It suc
  22. It’s time for Jonesy's Magical Christmas! 2017 is coming to an end and it’s time to bring my Disney theme to a close. This year has been a year of fantasy and disbelief. I’m not exactly where I want to be health and fitness wise but I’ve done a lot of good things this year. To end the year I want to focus on the Holiday and enjoying the season. Holiday Funtivities I have a few activities planned and have created an advent calendar for even more fun! I’ll post either a picture or a description of the activity I have been tasked with. Calendar must be completed by De
  23. The grinder challenge (not to be misconstrued as the Grindr challenge!! O_O) Often my last lift in a set will be really hard, I will feel like I can’t possibly do it, that the weight is too heavy, that I’ve done too many reps. But, slowly, surely that bar will inch up (often with a growl of exertion) until it clangs back into the holders. This will be the theme of the final challenge of the year. I’m tired. I’m feeling like maybe it’s too hard. I’m going to do it anyway. Goals. Gym: Once a week PT, once a week Krav, minimum once a week visit gym for programmed lifts. Eat: 5
  24. Come one, come all! Join my Disney pals in celebrating my NerdFitness Anniversary! November 5th is my official 5 year NF Anniversary. To celebrate I’m going to challenge myself to do my original challenge. Although I’m making a few tweaks based on my end of challenge results because I still hate the morning mile and because I’ve learned a lot in 5 years Oswald is going to remind me what my original goals were, right after he gets done fighting this guy… ORIGINAL - Back when challenges were 6 weeks and we still used stats
  25. So as small of a success as this was, it still impressed me. Throughout my entire college career and even into my job, one of my biggest gym problems was forgetting my socks at home. I would bring my bottle, headphones, cushy supps, and my whole outfit, but my socks would always be conveniently left behind. This posed a problem when i wouldn't have worn any that day, and my mind always immediately used that as an excuse to turn back home and not work out. After all, i don't wanna wear sweaty tennis shoes with no socks right? Flash forward to today when i leave my non-dress socks at home again
