The Get in Better Shape Thread (1/1/08 - 7/1/08)

Taking off from where Last years thread left off here



Alright everyone, after getting some feed back from some members about the last one, we're gonna go ahead and get another one started.

The Rules:

No Bashing/Degrading of any other member. Discussion is highly encouraged, but limited to only that: DISCUSSION. This is NOT a pissing contest. The only person you're competing w. is yourself.

Post a starting pic. Try to get one in as soon as you can so you (and us) can monitor results/progress. The pictures are here for reference. Posting other peoples picures outside of this thread without their permission will be dealt with harshly.

Set a goal. The most important part about setting a goal, is setting a realistic one; one that's acheivable. Is it to build up? Is it to trim down? Get toned? Get stronger?

Post up what you're regimen is. Work out routine? Diet?

I was very pleased that a lot of you reached the goals you all set. Challenge yourselves and have fun.

I have reached my goals.

I went to the gym 6 days a week, w/ atleast an hour of cardio, plus weights.

I ate right; healthy. No fast food, lots of frutis and vegetables, portion control, smaller meals, about six times a day.

I started at 180 lbs, I am now 125lbs. Note I am 5'6" so I'm just a little guy.

i'll definitely be posting in here. i just lost 20 lbs leading up to the holidays but i have definitely gained a couple back over the last week and a half. i am concentrating on portion control, and cardio 4 times a week for an hour as well as total body core exercises 3-4 times a week. i'll try to post a pic here in the next day or so.

I posted early in the last thread and I didn't do anything to improve my health. In fact, I put on a few more lbs. This time will be different. Basically, I'm tired of looking and especially feeling like crap all the time.

Stats:
5'6" tall
215 lbs (+/- 3lbs or so)
Estimated BFP 25-28% (embarrassing)

Goal:
Lose about 40lbs (the 170's are a healthy weight for me, and easy to maintain).
BPF closer to 12-15%

Workout routine:
2-a-day workouts, 6 days a week. Mornings will be cardio (treadmill). Evenings after work will be weight training. Different muscle group each day. ALL weight training workouts will include core strengthening exercises. At some point I will be joining an MMA gym, but that may be more than 6 months down the road.

Food: Eat foods that are not processed (whole wheat flour products, instead of bleached flour. Brown rice instead of white rice, etc). Eat more fruits and veggies. Cut out the majority of red meat I've been eating and replace with fish or poultry. Eat small portions 5-6 times each day.

I am in again.

Current stats are:

Age:27
Weight: 167-170
Body Fat: 20%

Goals: Add ten pounds of muscle in 90 days, and bring my body fat down to 12-15%

Websites I have found helpfull:
  1. http://www.bodybuilding.com
  2. http://www.fitday.com
  3. http://www.nutritiondata.com

Check out the BodySpace on bodybuilding.com. It is a great place to keep track of your gains/losses and lifting stats. I find it great for motivation. Here is a link to my BodySpace:
