    [QUOTE=rhinger;29092255]Good luck, but are you sure you're gonna pass the muscle-building parts of the gym? You can burn loads of calories through lifting weights anywhere on your body.

    Don't forget crunches, they are cruuuuuuuuuuciallllllll.

    Started doing legs last week Friday. I had never,ever done legs before so I'm focusing on that right now. My upper body had bulked up due lack of cardio and weights from Sept to December. Decided to take it easy on that.

    I have this sweet gym membership at an amazing gym til friday. From then on I wont be going as frequently or for such long duration as I'll be studying at Uni. My previous gym, the I will returning to on Sunday, doesn't have a squat rack

    Ah, well, you could cut down on the fatty foods as an alternative then. Red meats, chocolate, drinks, all that. It would help with the weight loss if you can't exercise too much.

    About the squat racks, I guess you could squat with lower weights, so you wouldn't need the rack? But that would be embarassing I know hahah
    My problem is not what I eat; it's how much I eat!

    Ill squat with lower weights. The hell if I care what other people think.

    Trying to cut down the amount of time I spend in the gym in each session. I spent 90 mins. Aiming to get that down to 60 mins of high intensity workouts.

    Also trying to limit size of food through use of chewing gum

    Finally, one rest day a week.

    I'm no diet expert tbh.

    The only weird thing is you keep just editing your OP. Normally for fitness blogs people just make a new post for every update/new day. That way anyone following it will get a bump.

    If you want quick advice C&P your diet into a new thread in the fitness section and you'll get the experts tlling you the stuff...

    28th December 2010
    30 minutes on Stationary
    20 mins HIIT on Treadmill
    10 Mins on Rowing machine
    15 mins on Cross Trainer
    Personally I'm not a fan of jumping from one cardio machine to another for an extended period of time. Find something you enjoy and stick with it. If you get bored switch things up with intervals, vary the intensity and/or cut down on overall workout time. Again, personally I wouldn't use the x-trainer unless I had an injury.

    As for your current HIIT setup I've got my doubts. You will get the most out of HIIT being fresh and if you do it properly, that's when you call it a day. By all means warmup and do some light cooldown work but 30mins stationary beforehand is excessive and almost another 30mins after of cardio means that you probably aren't working at a high enough intensity (if you're a beginner, fair do's but otherwise think about scaling up the intensity).

    The bulk of your progress is going to be via your diet, not spending hours in the gym running around like a hamster in a wheel.

    You've obviously got access to the likes of free weights, that should make up the bulk of your work not machines. Focus on one quality lower body exercise (eg; lunges, stepups, squats, deadlifts), one upper body pull (eg; pullups, chinups, dumbbell rows) and one upper body push (eg; dumbbell overhead press, dips, weighted pushups, dumbbell bench press). Perform 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps with 3-5 mins rest between sets (with the bodyweight exercises by all means shoot for more reps). If you can't perform pullups use an assisted machine or jump until your chin is over the bar and then slowly lower yourself - when you can perform 10-20 negative you should be able to do at least one pullup, then focus on doing multiple singles until you can do a double, etc.

    If you've got some spare time at the end of the workout by all means do some additional exercises but again, I'd lean towards doing more free weights or bodyweight movements but simply with a lighter weight (eg; if you did 5x5 16kg lunges you might do 5 sets of 20 with just your bodyweight at the end).

    Sort out your knees. If you're injured rest and/or get some physio, revise your technique and don't overt-reach. If you've got flexibility and mobility problems stretch, foam roll and do some mobility exercises


    This is pretty good but it could do with a lot more fruit and vegetables (vegetables especially) in there:

    1st january
    REST DAY- TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON CARBS
    breakfast: 1 pitta 3 pieces of skinless boiled chicken
    lunch: 2 pieces of skinless boiled chicken, 2 small apples and salad
    dinner: 2 apples/ 1 white pitta/ Chick peas / 4 bacon boiled/ 3 chipolatta sausages ( 150 calories worth)
    Also shy away from the likes of saveloy, luncheon meats, etc - they're normally heavily processed and not especially good for you. Better options would be to make some homemade hummus, cook up some chicken from the night before and slice it up, tuna, etc.

    1) Ate before I did my workout and was able to break my rowing record - 4500m in 19 minutes.
    2) Did many reps in a short amount of time- 60 minutes weights.
    3)Didnt touch free weights. Stuck to Dumbbell and Matrix.

    Cardio
    1) Noted. Stick to one and vary the intensity. Cross trainer is crap. Never use it these days.
    2) Yes. My intensity is too low. Went to play football today and sprinting on and off left my lightheaded. That due to me going to gym in the morning probably

    Diet
    Noted. Already bought vegetables and apples. Bought chicken thigh and drumsticks. Sausages are low in calorie and filling so I still will eat them.

    Weights
    Will stop focusing single sessions to one muscle group. In a 1hr session I will do One upper pull/push and leg.

    Knee
    Bowlegged with high arch of foot resulting in high susceptibility to shin splints. Currently being treated.

    Most sausages, frankfurters and saveloys are heavily processed, by all means have them as a treat occasionally but they shouldn't be a staple of your diet no matter how low in calories they are.

    I am hungry before I sleep and wake up at 4 am hungry. Should I eat and what types of food should I eat at this time?

    I think complex carbs for dinner would solve tis problem - no?

    Once a week update

    Ever since doing free weights only, I can only do 50 mins max in the weights room and I come out dripping with sweat.This never happened when I was using machines.

    Tried HIIT proper today on the rowing machine. Will do this as my gym cardio. Only 10 intervals now and will gradually up the intervals once I get better. I got up to 1800 speed during my "on" phase today

    With football training once a week, that's another HIIT!

    ADOPTING THE SMALL TIME HIGHER INTENSITY APPROACH.

    I'm a student, not a boxer!

    Week 6 Update

    Blood test results came back normal
    Was 67kg this time last year. Started lifting from April/May of last year and now 76/77kg fully hydrated and full stomach. Was worried that this was hormonal but alas, I must have been eating too much

    Given up on French Baguettes.
    They tasted wonderful but I would eat massive portions of them.

    Currently weighing in at 76kg and have put on size able muscle in the upper body. Too much. Afraid that I may reach a weight far, far too high for my 5'10 frame.
    That's why I'm now going to the gym twice a week.
