even if you dont have any exercise equipment, running 3 days a week, doing pushups and situps the other 3 days, and taking one day off can do a lot of good

when i first decided i wanted to get serious about working out one summer i went to this website and used its advice

http://www.intense-workout.com/

i lost 40 pounds that summer and was in the best shape of my life, so there is some really good advice there. ive recently started back up on a workout routine and it really does make you feel better

what?


if you want to be superficial and work out to the extent of looking good then do whatever and do not comment on my personal motivations.

i gave up smoking four weeks ago, for the same reason that i am wanting to get fit...... i.e. i want to live to be 50!!

i don't want huge muscles....i want to be fit! did i mention anything about looks????

I think it's good that we have this thread, in all seriousness. I know it can sometimes be just as hard for men to talk about body issues and so forth, and that sometimes men can feel they face pressure to look or feel a certain way just as women do.

I hope the guys know that they should be, and are, just as safe to talk about these things here as the gals are.

:: leaves boy thread for real and politely asks the gals to do the same ::

for whatever it's worth, I used to run track but since a back injury I now use a NordicTrak and the thing is just amazing. that and the B-man's preferred exercise - swimming - brings up a lot of endurance and strength without building weird muscles where you don't necessarily want them etc. great for the breathing and cardio fitness...

i agree diet is very important, people think if you work out than you can eat worse and it will be ok, but the truth is you need to be eating better to be able to sustain the workouts

but you can eat more than just salads and veggies

getting enough protein is key, good foods are turkey, chicken, tuna, eqq whites, cottage cheese....anything with high protein and low fat is great

if you do 40 mins of cardio 3 days a week, and then lift weights the other 3 days a week then that is good, but you should do at least 10 mins of cardio before lifting just for a nice warm up

Please don't be angry, I came in here thinking "The Guys" part meant U2, but before I left, I saw that a couple of you just quit smoking, and I wanted to pass this on for what it's worth. I quit last November, and never increased my caloric intake at all, and I have the lumps on my head to prove it, and about three months later, I gained 15 lbs. and was ready to put my fist through a wall, when my pulmonologist said that people gain an average of 15-20 lbs. even if they are as good as gold when they quit, because it is a build up of toxins that hang around for God knows how long until they're ready to flush themselves -- depends on the person. I wanted you to know, because you all seem so serious about the workouts and the diet, and if this happens to you while you're working so hard, you might get discouraged...I'll go back where I belong now. And good luck!

I keep routine fairly simple.....

* I drink whey protein powder 2 or 3 times a day...(this fills you up to) and it also helps burn fat, build muscle, gives energy... I drink it on an empty stomach to make sure its most effective.
* I take Vitamin C tablets daily that help restore and build muscle tissue.
* Then I do an hour in the weight room, rotating muscle groups daily.
* I then run a mile or 2.

Thats what I do Monday through Friday. I used to do it for basketball but now I justdo it for myself.

This is a great thread, I think men should really think about their health at an early age. I'm 39 and I'm in pretty good shape. I think I look better than I ever had, but my energy level just ain't what it was 5 years ago. My diet is mediocre at best (as I sip on a Corona), but I try to eat 3 good meals a day with minimum amount of snacking.

I also lift 4 or 5 times a week, and have been (finally) mixing in a real cardio workout. I also cut back on sodas and went to a lot of water instead...beers are water right?

Hey Mr. BAW great job, it feels good when you start seeing the fruits of your labor isn't it?
