Get all fit for uni. Then drink lotttts of beer.
And lose it all.
See it all seems a great idea in theory, but unless i lived near the gym i wouldn't really work....plus something iv never got?....people pay money to go and only go on those tread mills and bikes...have people forgotten the days when you walk out you house and actually go for a walk, or ride a bike??
In saying this, i did try eating healthly the other week, and for the first time looked at calories and fat etc in food, but there were far too many unhealthy things to eat....so i gave up! lol
i wanted to get fit for uni, and i achieved it.. but for no reason really!!!
I play in the rugby sevens 1st team and play in the football 2nd team and am in the first team for table tennis.. but didnt really need to get "fit"..
I think the idea of getting "muscley and looking good" may be a beta approach, but there is some1 for every one at uni.. so be your self and enjoy..
i can't think of a much better reason to get into shape than going to uni. i've been training 2 years now and am heavily into it, but i took it up the summer b4 uni so i could make a fresh start.
I had low confidence, had barely even kissed a girl and i generally considered myself unattractive . it was hard seeing all my mates pulling and stuff (realy immature **** if you think about it) and just standing there getting slightly more pissed.
So i kicked the drink and started working out. I was a respectable size when i got to uni and was puttting on weight really well. ended up being dumped for a bigger guy, but hell that's life. having a few girl problems at the mo (that's another thread) but the fact is, and it may sound arrogant, i feel no girl is out of my league. in essence, i turned myself around in less than 18 months from insecurity to an inner confidence i know myself to have.
So youd just as much want to play for UCL 1sts as UCL 2nds (they are both number 2) :P:!
i used to bodybuild but i just ended up realising that it would lead nowhere. its such a ridiculous effort not to mention high cost investing in all those high protein foods and its not rly a healthy way to live if u ask me. i knew a guy who was rly into it and eventually had to stop after years because so much protein had ****ed his kidneys up. ive gone back to boxing lately and im alot more happy knowing that my heart is healthy (i run between 4-5 miles every morning). i spose i dont look as big as i used to but knowing that i can beat most guys that walk around the gym shoving protein shakes into theior mouths is something comforting, and actually having to box gives me alot more confidence in life than being "big" does. ive lost 15 kg mostly in muscle since i stopped building. i can safely say that im alot more capable of defending myself then i ever was back then. not to say bodybuilders are all a bunch of ******s or anything, im just saying its not always a very healthy thing to do, even if it looks good...
I'm going to be living on top of a big hill with lots of steps up to my college... so i'm going to get fit while i'm there (lots of exercise and i've heard the food isn't the best at durham) and enjoy myself now!!
I'm also currently eating nutella out of the jar with a spoon...[indication of student life to come for thee all]
