    Well you're hitting on a girl who you have no chance with

    Mate this is tiring , but I'm motivated to do it! Lol swear down if my future guy is unfit, I'm ganna run after him to ensure he's running lol, or if i'm feeling mean make a dog run after him ( dunno how that's ganna work cuz i'm scared of dogs too).

    Well.... My plan in order...

    1) Stretches (2 mins)
    2) Yoga ( 5 mins)
    3) Push ups ( 2 mins) --> it's soo hard lol
    4) Sit ups ( 3 mins) -> find it hard
    5) Squats ( 5 mins) -> i need that ****** loooooooooool
    6) Maybe some random dance for (3 mins)

    Is that okay? I'm worried about the amount of mins i'm investing
    Hahaha worth a try Well you know what they say, no pain no gain!

    I'm a big fan of yoga, but normally people spend like an hour doing yoga don't they? I'm not sure I'd put it in a workout like that, it's doing the same job as stretching. Also, I'd strongly suggest you do a number of sets and reps rather than a time limit for something like push ups. If you're struggling, you can start by doing push ups with your knees on the ground and build up your strength until you do full push ups. Following a similar sort of plan:

    1) Stretch out for 2 mins - Keep your stretches dynamic though, cause if you passive stretch before you warm up you'll injure yourself.
    2) 5 mins of cardio to warm up - Dance would work just great for this
    3) Push ups - 3 sets of 15 reps as a starting guide, raise or lower it as you see fit.
    4) Sit ups - 3 sets of 30 reps: 10 with your feet tucked up tight against your bum, 10 with your feet in a typical sit up position, 10 with your feet further out (the different foot positions focus on different parts of your core)
    5) Squats - 3 sets of 20 reps: Again, raise or lower as you see fit. If you've got decent legs, you'll quite possibly want to add weight. Just stick a rucksack on and fill it with books.
    6) 8 more mins of cardio - Dance would still fit the bill nicely

    Taking rests between each set (no more than 1 minute I'd recommend) this should take maybe 25, 30 mins ish? Decent starting point if you're doing it every morning. As your fitness gets better, you'll want to add some more cardio somewhere. Like I said, I'd suggest once you're comfortable with this maybe do a couple evenings a week of cardio. Something like going running for 40 minutes.

    Daily routine ... okay a typical day
    Breakfast ( if I don't miss it) --> Wheatabix, egg on toast, and tea.
    Lunch-> If at college I usually get a cheese and tomato sandwich/ tomato pasta, and sometimes I get a breakfast bar or grapes, and drink water.
    Dinner-> can be from Pizza, chips, jacket potato, mash potato, Spag bowl, Pasta, Chapatti....

    Previously I did 0 exercise.. sometimes did Yoga

    Cardio is the best exercise for loosing weight, helps stamina too.

    You can't focus on losing fat in one area, pretty sure that's a myth.

    (Original post by Anonbabes)
    do you mean by reps?
    It's one action.

    One rep could be one push up or it could be one push-up combined with another exercise, or a combo of them... ect

    Powerless to resist, eh?

    Reps as in repetitions. So 1 sets of 15 reps, would mean you do the exercise 15 times and then take a rest. So 3 sets of 15 reps, you do the exercise 15 times, then take a rest. Then another 15, then take a rest. Then another 15, then take a rest. You'll probably find squats without weights pretty easy. If you do, don't coast! Add some weight until you're feeling the burn when you squat down.

    Gonna dance for me, are you? Gosh, such a tease

    Here's my suggestion

    Breakfast - Keep it like it is , could have porridge and egg and fruit instead but what your having now is okay - maybe replace toast with brown bread if your having white , and don't have like 20 sugars in your tea cuz then you'll be off it.

    Lunch - As your at college i know what its like having to get something like healthy but i would say maybe go to a grilled chicken place and have that with rice , or just literally buy chicken at home and brown rice and have that - its really good for you and will fill you up

    Dinner - jheeeeze those carbs are killing me hahaha , yeah for dinner i would have fish or chicken again , can add a jacket potato in but obviously no like salt or beans or cheese so like plain , maybe a little butter


    this is just something i would change

    this is just something i would change
    Breakfast-> I don't like porridge. I only put a half of a big spoon of sugar in my tea.

    Lunch-> I prefer going to the cold side...

    Dinner-> I know we eat too much during this time ahhahah. Hm the thing is I can't have fish and have cereal for breakfast cuz apparently it's not good to have milk and fish together.

    I NEED THE CHEESE AND BEANS MATE

    yoga for 5 minutes isn't going to achieve anything, how are you doing yoga? even short beginner videos are usually 20-30 minutes and that's a very short session
    if you want to actually be fitter and healthier you're going to have to do some cardio and if you 'hate sweat' you're not going achieve anything exercising full stop

    So long as it didn't earn me a slap, I'm sure I could deal Hey, you don't know that

    No problem, I forget that gym talk isn't exactly familiar to everyone sometimes lol.

    Is the crab the bridging position? Or is it the one where you balance on your hands?
