Been thinking about working out, lack the motivation at the moment. Health purposes of course, want to get rid of this gut, to much boozing and not enough walking.

A combination of gymnastics, muay thai, and nin-jitsu does the body good. You can be the huge body builder type, but flexibility is often overlooked and very useful. That, and running, bike riding, etc. to build up and maintain endurance. I work out everyday just having fun practicing martial arts with my buddies. I say, it's most important to make exercise fun, that way it's easier to build up strength and agility. I work out to increase my skills, and all the wonderful benefits that come with it.

I used to do a little Aikido, but that was a few months back and it was more for emotional calming than physical exercise. That said, the walk to the Dojo was a good 2 miles at least. I guess the walk did me some good, but the martial art itself was slow paced.

yes, circuit training is very good. Its a very good method of working out. It doesnt get boring aswell because your not always doing the same type of exercise (push-up, step ups ect.)
And it keeps you fit.

Also martial arts is really good fun too.

This is the thread I've been looking for! I weight train 4 days a week and diet. I lift for 3 reasons. vanity, girls, and for health. I have a comprehensive week starting with legs and ending with back and biceps. I also diet 90% of the week. I don't struggle with weight issues so I tend to make up excuses to not do cardio but I do like cycling and an incline treadmill set to basically climbing a steep hill. I lift mainly for body building reasons and plan on taking some self defense classes here shortly.

I do martial arts. When I was in my teens I did Tae Kwon Do for about 6 years. I did boxing for a little bit as teen as well. Now I do Vale Tudo. Which is pretty much like MMA, we have classes dedicated to wrestling/jujitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing and cardio classes. I don't train as often as I would like because of my work schedule, but, I still get in some classes.

I read a fitness topic a few days back but after searching I noticed that there weren't any body building topics. But then again I can't even figure out the quote option on this site! LOL!

So I want to discuss the finer points of body building with others, either aspiring or competing. Body building is a very misunderstood sport, sport in the only sense that at the end of your on-season you actually compete against anyone else. Solitary in the sense that you train alone or with a spot from others. Hugely misunderstood that we are all juicers or meat heads.

When we are considering the pro's of the sport we are, for the sake of being real, looking at steroid abusers. Those 300lb. plus dudes that have stomachs that resemble turtle shells. That is due to their intestines growing inside their stomach. Freaky shit! Even Arnold admits to using doctor prescribed steroids, and in his country it's not demonized like it is here, even though he was lifting here. Mostly experimentation in those days but has spawned a new kind of freak.

There are natural events where steroid use is tested for and prohibited and if I had a better body without so many anomalies I would try to compete. The naturals aspire to have that Greek scuplture look, we want to look like works of art. There is scrutiny in the symetry, definition, seperation, and even striations in the muscle that are looked at by judges.

The misconception that we are all "meat heads" implies that the only thing we think about is the gym. That is very far from the truth. We all juggle social lives, most of us have female admirers (sometimes males too), we pursue educations, read books, etc... just like anyone else really. Body building is in the blood, and it takes a complete life overhaul to live it. It's how you sleep, eat, train, and live! Sometimes it's what I dream about too! I don't ever plan on taking steroids but in this sport it isn't about cheating, it's actually about keeping up.

I'd be curious as to what some others are doing for their training, dieting advice, physique critiques, etc...

If Satanism is based on strength, then it is only natural to make full use of this vessel!

Ahem...

I am 39 now and these days I mostly lift weights just for strength and endurance as part of an overall fitness program to fight in MAA.

However, when I was a younger man I was a body builder. In my prime I was 6' and a ripped 200lbs. I was all natural. I did everything right. I read everything and used every natural hedge there was. A lot guys I knew were on the juice and because I got big very quickly of people thought I was too. My training focused heavily on using the correct work out, not over training, and using work and rest cycles that promoted the natural release of HGH.

 Quote:

Actually no. Those bulging stomach come from a lot of 'body builders' who are just plain fat and are tool lazy to get cut up. Regardless, most common body building lifts require a strong core. Your abs act as a hydraulic piston to keep your back straight. Guys who strain their back do so because of a weak core. The ubiquitous 'weight belt' is for increasing this pressure on the core. If you are doing a lot of heavy unsupported lifts you will develop a stronger core by default. A lot of power lifters have this look - a combination of fat over top of an over developed core to support the loads they work with. By and large, intestines don't grow.

 Quote:

Yes, Arnold took steroids. However, he also worked his ass off and had superior genetics. The vast majority of body builders on the juice are lazy. They just want take a pill and get big. They do not have the dedication to actual put in the sort of work Arnold did. When was the last time you saw I guy doing Arnold's 50 pull up routine?

 Quote:

Yes! Because that is the idealized human form. Look at the sculptures of Hercules - not just powerful pecks and lats, but a powerful core with bulging intercostals. This is the look of a truly powerful man!

Damn fist! An inch shorter than me and ripped to shreds at 200lbs.! You must have had an amazing diet and workout regimen. I've plateau'd at 6'1" 183-185 lbs. and the shit is pissing me off. I'm trying to take in more protein see if that helps and I have noticed some fullness in my muscles with the creatine ethylester I'm taking. Did you plateau, or did you just stop for the time being? And I do have to admit that the shape you need to be in for MMA is pretty solid indeed. I saw a fighter in my gym doing neck push ups upside down against a wall! Crazy shit!

This is some footage of a professional fitness model that openly admits steroid use and is sponsored by muscletech, who in turn sponsors Mr. Olympia champions like Jay Cutler. He takes steroids because of his testosterone count, and is doctor prescribed. So I'm pretty sure I would trust his advice on the subject of steroid use versus abuse. There is no possible way to get that fucking big fist! You can't argue with me on that, look at how big even men with great genetics get, they don't plateau at 320lbs. rock solid.

I agree with steroid use 100% but not for baseball players, or football players. I think the physique looks amazing when done properly. This guy looks pretty good, but I naturally could probably never look that way. I would be happy at your weight (200lbs.) shredded.

He also says that you can't take a pill or injection of HGH and get big. You still have to have the same dedication in the gym as I do, and anyone that's ever had to take a steroid for an injury knows that you have to work the injection out of your system otherwise you'll turn into a toad. There are Pro Hormone cycles that are adamant about you eating fatty foods on your cycle, I'm pretty sure that HGH is no different. My physique is in cycles...bulk, shed, and shred. Still bulking, lol!

Look at this guy and tell me honestly that he isn't juicing...

Yes, back in my mid to late twenties I was in my prime. I never went into ketosis for competition or anything crazy like that. I also ran about 20 miles a week so I had a good cardio program. On average I held at about 10% body fat.

These days, I am pushing 40 with a wife and two kids. I am about 230 with 17% body fat and working on some love handles. Still, I can throw down a slow 6 mile run, bench 300lbs, and do a 30' rope climb.

However, I am much better technical fighter because I have had many more years to train. These days I can beat most guys half my age as long as I can finish things in the first couple of rounds. I am much stronger than I was when I was younger but my endurance has gone way down.

Never the less, I can easily overmatch your average idiot (and his two toughest friends) who doesn't work out much, smokes pot, and watches MMA on TV. These asshats are a dime a dozen and seem to hang out in every mall and gas station in the country.

Well, as a guy that has been involved with MMA since the beginning and martial arts before that, I highly recommend MMA training to anyone that desires physical superiority \:\)


I have been practicing karate and cardio kickboxing (the latter being, in my dojo, very much a fighting discipline as well as an aerobic workout) since September 2009.

I also, each morning, do a calisthenics routine consisting of twelve sets of fifty jumping jacks, sixty crunches, and twenty push-ups, with each superset of three sets separated by karate's first kata.

I am 48 years old, male, five foot five, and 159 pounds. According to BMI, I still have ten pounds to lose to achieve a state of health. BMI is the stricted measurement regime I have yet identified. I don't know if I will lose the ten pounds but barring serious accident or catastrophic ill health I will continue with the physical exercise discipline described above, as it has dramatically improved my body and my psychology, plus actice participation in a dojo is fun and socially rewarding.

I just signed up to the gym again after years away. I have olympic bench and plates in my living room. My flat is my gym but I thought I'd start personal trainer again a few months back, I have a few young people that come here and I meet in the gym.

I weigh 154lb with 15 1/4 inch arms, I have no bodyfat because I don't eat any fat, I bench press with 220lb. Military press with 122lb (hurt shoulder). 37 wide grip pull ups in one set is my best. I have a shoulder injury I'm rehabilitating so I had to take some exercises out. I just do more upright rows for shoulders and the shoulder is almost repaired. My back routine is basic as fuck and composed of numerous sets of barbell rows and weighted pull ups, dumbbell pullovers. The only exercise I do for chest is bench press because the shoulder thing. My shoulder routine is varied but with the main exercise being heavy upright rows. Sit ups and hyper extensions every other day, shed loads of sets till I'm crippled. Legs is squats only.

I'm a light guy, my bodyweight to strength ratio is advanced. I have some funny videos some place of dumbbell pullovers and hyper extensions.

Does anyone have a personal sick record for hyper extensions? personal goals? my routine is still compound basics
after all these years, I just concentrate on adding weight to the bars and keep my bodyweight down moving toward an ideal ratio.

Obviously this above is not any workout routine just a few things I do. I'm always on a split routine of 'Chest/ Back'. 'Shoulders/ Arms'. and 'Legs' on separate days. Since I was 18. Same exercises, add more weight to the bar as I go. I had 5 years off and got back on board 2 years ago. I'm in the best shape of my life at 30, muscle memory.

I design more complex programs for others, but I have always responded to primitivism and reps ranges of 5-8, everything explosive. I do my cardio separate with just a run around the wood now and then.

I eat 5 times a day and make the most seriously tasty healthy foods, I'm an evil genius in the kitchen when it comes to healthy food preparation!

Most of my training is derived from Bruce Lee's Tao of JKD rather than the bodybuilding training I've had. I train with a young boxer who comes here and eats all MY protein bars that I make!
