    If you're doing any sort of lifting you do have to eat decent stuff, enough low GI carbs and enough protein, don't have to go to the extremes of 3000 cals, nor did I say so in my post, but you would have to have a good well balanced diet all the same

    why the **** with the neg rep, i'm in enough of a ****ing bad mood anyway, ffs
    If you're attempting to lose fat (I assume you are). First, find the right diet i.e. cutting out carbs and so on.

    Go tesco's, buy a set of DB's, a skipping rope, an Eminem CD = sorted.

    GL and stick at it.

    No, the main reason I was trying to find time to exercise wasn't to do about losing fat.

    and it's gonna be a long time till I can exercise again due to my broken ****ing ankle

    Not really true, i was talking to a trainer at the gym about it last week when i was entering an offroad race(just incase...)

    He basically said just to hit the weights for 6 weeks or so if you break your ankle, and a lot of gym have other machines for upper body...

    Not that you can afford the gym easily but it'd be worth trying to go once a week or something...

    I don't have time to train... but I want to a good body.

    It's you against excuses, It's you against can't. Make time. Time management. It's upto you.

    - Get a bike with lights and go a cycle.
    - Buy a pull-up bar.
    Whatever... Opitions are many.

    I've heard "I can't afford stuff" before...

    And normally these people are either wasting a lot of money or not being bothered to get a job.

    I have no help from parents at all and just live off student loan and job wages and i easily afford the gym...

        Do this in your room;

        20 burpees, 10 press ups, 10 mountain climbers (alternate squat thrusts), 10 sit ups. Reduce each set of burpees by 2 but keep other sets static at 10. Stop when you have counted down to zero. It works!

        If you have a job how do you have no money?

        You MUST be wasting money somewhere...

        Maybe pick up a few more shifts a month at work?

        Gym memberships are about £15 a month for the average uni gym so that's what, 3 hours working?

        Thanks for this. I actually have a broken ankle atm, by the time that heals I reckon it'll be light enough on mornings/evenings to go out. Thanks agian.

        If you have time to post 3770 times on TSR, you have time to exercise, you just don't want to.

        All I'm seeing are a list of excuses

        Darkness really is NOT an excuse.

        Gymnasiums do not alter their opening times during to change in season....

        I personally run to the city centre and back in Manchester, since my local park is closed as soon as I come home.

        If you insist on NOT working out you must lower your calorie intake, even if it is healthy food otherwise you WILL gain weight.

        I live in the county, after people called my a pussyhole who lacked motivation, I went for a run, went over on a tree root, broke my ankle.

        And why does everyone assume people just exercise because they want to lose weight??
