And what do you do? I mostly do body weight exercises and bench press as well as going for jogs every now and then, and lots of heavy bag training

I don't really workout to look good as much as I do to beat people up so I don't really worry about how much calories I intake and just eat whatever offers the most protein.

I recently made up my own push up routine.

Instead of doing three sets of forty standard push ups followed by explosive push ups until failure like I usually do I decided to add some more variations to my routine.

Standard Push Up 1x20
Wide Push Up 1x20
Elevated Push Up 1x20 or until failure
Diamond Push Up 1x15 or until failure
Explosive Push Up until failure
Isometric Push Up 2x30 seconds

it's only my second day of doing this routine but it seems like it's working.

I try to alternate every day- isolations one day and cardio the next... Pull up bars work well if you're looking to do build up upper body mass.

The body is a weapon of war. It is important to keep it clean, well fueled, and in good running order. I used to do free weight until I was able to bench press 300 lbs. I got tired of bodybuilding and just got into a simple routine of calisthenics and fight training. I really don't like physical contact unless it's absolutely the last resort. I prefer to hex people.

I'm a pretty big guy, around 6'4" and nearly 200 pounds so for the most part people tend to avoid getting into physical conflicts with me. But I was a bit of a dweeb when I was younger, didn't workout and couldn't really fight well so I've been training myself in Boxing techniques and working out for a year now and it's amazing how people began to "bow down" to me. It's almost as if they can sense that I don't fuck around now and can theoretically kill some of them with my bare hands.

I like physical conflict to an extent. I'm a hyper aggressive person. There's something about fighting that I enjoy. Maybe it's the fact that the whole world dies down for a little while and it's just about you and the person in front of you. In the same token I'm just as comfortable relaxing and being friendly with people, usually I let the other person challenge me in some way and then I smack them down.

Fighting and even killing are a pleasure, preferably if you are the one winning. Unfortunately, doing these things in public may eventually get you locked up or the subject of some lawsuit. There are legal avenues that allow us to pursue these pleasures. The military is one, and the professional fight game is the other.
Violence in our society is something that is publicly condemned, but secretly condoned. If you are really good at it, it can be very lucrative.

I work out every day, alternating push-ups, sit-ups, and squats... I also do some free weights to supplement on the days when I feel like an extra push. I eat very healthy, and I have had some martial arts training in the past which I practice when the weather is nice and I have time. I also drink lots of water.

If you have any MA training, I would suggest that you never use it where there is any possibility of witnesses.

IMHO it is better to withdraw and fight on your own terms.

If you sit by the river long enough, you will see the bodies of all the sheeple you wish you could kill with your bare hands floating by... Or something like that ;\)

Sound a bit weird if your exercise consists of just push ups... If you want to be in a condition to beat up people, with that routine you are doomed to fail.
Human body is a lethal weapon, but you need to train the whole body. Mostly all movement comes from your abdomen/back/hips.
If you punch a guy with just the power of your arm, it'll get you nowhere, sure, it'll sting but it still leaves the opponent standing. And probably pretty pissed off... ;\)

I have found the greatest way of exercise, good old girya/kettlebell. There's not a thing you can't do with it. It's not very expensive and lasts forever. It comes in various sizes that can be used for many different training methods.
I myself currently use a 16kg kettlebell (about 35.3 lb) Most of the exercises I do are so hard for me that a lot bigger kettlebell would just brake my joints. My current routine consists of about 6 diferent moves and totals a little over 300 reps.
That training method is quite convenient cause I don't have the money nor time to go to a gym, and with the kettlebell I can do it all at home and it takes about 30-40 minutes.

Anybody else have any experience with the kettlebell? I'd like to hear about your exercise experience.

Edit. Oh, sorry, I somehow managed to read and already forget that you did mention all the other exercises as well... \:\)

Yeah I try and mix it up with a good all around routine. Push ups, clean and jerk, squats, bench press, dips, and I recently started doing sit ups. My main focus is push ups and bench though.

Also push ups actually will strengthen your abdominal muscles if you do them correctly.

If this is the case you are going about it all wrong. Calisthenics are fine and dandy, but they won't really help you in this regard. I recommend some thai boxing and/or BJJ classes if the goal is to be physically dominant over other humans.

Muscles are useless if they aren't trained.

Well, Lady CS, I sort of did. Muay Thai and BJJ are generally trained full contact. This is in direct contrast to most 'other' martial arts that are little more than the 'texas two step'.

My main point though is that huge muscly guys that dont know how to defend themselves generally fall about as quickly as little guys that don't know how to defend themselves \:\)

Quite true.

It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

It has been my general experience that a lot of big guys have coasted through life without having to actually fight much. They tend to have used intimidation more than skill.

All the same, few people have ever been in an actual street fight. I am not talking about some jackass fist-to-cuffs or bar room brawl. Rather, a real street fight with no rules where the loser goes to the hospital or the morgue.

In general, in a real street fight I would never recommend anyone roll around on the ground like MMA/BJJ. This is just begging to get your head kicked in by the guy's friends. Finish the fight quickly and violently. It should never go to ground.

Granted, BJJ is a tool in the tool box but it is not a multi-tool. It is a specialized tool for the fighter foolish enough to not finish the fight on his feet.

To actually win an unarmed life or death violent encounter, few things work better than the eye gouge. In my experience your opponent will simply lose the will to fight. You can then finish him with more traditional techniques.

I would also highly recommend Bas Ruten's "How to Win a Bar Fight" DVD. Clips of it are on youtube. Bas has one of the best styles around. It is very reminiscent of the old WWII style of US Army Combatives before we got all gay and adopted Modern Army Combatives.

Any fighting style worth it's salt is easy to learn, easy to employ, simple and utilizes techniques that can quickly cause incapacitation, disability, or death.

I've been a fan of UFC for the over a decade. I was one of the first on my block to stray into the local video store and pick up UFC #1 from the Korean guy running the shop. Back then, there were no rules. No weight limits. No gloves, no pussy stoppages, no regulations. You stepped in the octagon, fought your ass off until a winner was declared, and went back in the locker room to recover for 20-30 minutes before coming back out to face the next guy. Guys would pound the hell out of each other for 20 minutes, the winner would come back out bleeding and bruised and face the next guy. I witnessed 120 pounders take on 200 pounders and waste them. Look at some of Royce Gracie's fights from back then. He would dispatch foes twice his weight in seconds. Snapped elbows, choked out, ankle locks. He would absorb some brutal punishment initially, and then it was lights out. Today's UFC and MMA in general is apples to oranges to the initial game.

I've been in my share of street fights when I was younger. Where I grew up at there wasn't much else for kids to do other than fight each other so I know the "no rules" rule applies in a street fight. I've been training myself in Boxing and been thinking about joining a Boxing or maybe even a MMA gym since there is one nearby.

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 \:\)

Most MMA is just a solid mix of BJJ, wrestling, and Muay Thai, but between those three elements the whole of fighting is pretty much covered.

lol upper body realy is no good unless you are going to push people back. your strike does not need to be powerfull just fast. if you can hit your opponet twice before they can hit back their strke wont even hurt. I myself use kicks to drop them then use either a ground and pound a guillotine or some form of choke.

im a 6'0 200lb MMA fighter i started training at 16 and never stoped i will not ever do UFC because of the rules but im telling you now DO NOT EVER kick someone that is already down and NEVER perform a knee drop Unless you plan on killing them that is one of my good friends is serving 1 count of manslaughter for kicking a guy that was on the ground
and I've seen some nasty knee drops

But to get back on point the only workout you need to be a good fighter is cardio.

I do workout when I can. At work I'm always bussy that keeps me active. During my off time I dance moving my hips works the muscles. I only eat 2 meals a day instead of eatting a lunch. I eat this bar called Mrs. Marys Naturals it has three nuts, three seeds,and three fruits. You can get a box of it from Costco for $15.99. After I'm done with the bar I down a bottle water. Right there I keep myself full until dinner time. I also do light jogging and sex.

I'm impressed Dan ;\)

Unlike everyone else here (it seems) I work out to maintain how I look and be healthy. Usually sit ups, push ups, running, weight lifting, that sort of thing. As for my diet I'm a pescetarian. I've also been getting into sambo.

Even though I often hear Tae Kwon Do playfully referred to as "Take One's Dough," I'll have to agree with you on its benefits. Loosely translated as "The art of hands and feet," the purpose is to attain the feeling of the mind and body working as one.

It gives me the feeling of being Kosher for Passover!

What rule makes that so? In a fight isn't the goal to be a terror to you enemy? There is no room to be soft if you are already engaged in combat. I personally do what I have to because the only unfair fight is the one that you lose.

As for work out, I do pt in the mornings. Just simple 5+ mile runs as of the past week or so. But it gets rotated about a day of upper body push ups and stuff like that. Then lower body such as sit ups flutter kicks. Then running. But as far as going to the gym no not really once in a blue moon if I got a friend who needs a buddy to spot or if I have a pt test coming up.

heh, the way I see it the only times kicks can never be implemented is in a fight that's done for pure sport. But in a street fight anything can happen, the point is to attack your opponent until they can't or don't want to attack you.

No the point of a fight (in my view) is to incapacitate to enemy. They are your enemy for a reason give them a reason to quit which is the inability to continue. I see no point in "oh we were fighting but you haven't learned your lesson as to why we are fighting. You want to stop because you aren't winning so I need to quit." Screw that! Make them remember you for the rest of their life. Leave them with shame and let them ruminate over the fact that you are supperior. Let them understand that might is right.

LOL! I'm sorry, but if someone fights with me, I'll kick 'em while they're down. Count on it. If I can get in close enough, I'll stick 'em. I do the maximum damage I can. Why? Simple deterrence. The message is clear. Don't start shit with me and all will be well.

Dont get me wrong I will kick and do anything else needed to win but I dont plan on killing my enemy just downing them to the point that they cant stand. most of the time one or two kicks to the head while standing are enough but once an enemy is down a ground and pound or choke is enough a kick to the head once they are down can and will kill them. And I am not going to lie that is a scary feeling and not somthing I will do again.

Head kicks while on the ground were always legal in PRIDE, and nobody ever died in pride. I myself have eaten and dished out many head kicks on the ground while sparring/in matches and I live still! (as do each the unfortunate motherfuckers I gave a close-up of my foot to)

Weren't you leaving?

My school was like that. The owner of the place promoted people that had no business being up there, because he got money by doing it. It was dangerous because those people thought they were a lot more badass than they really were.

But, the learning depends more on the student than the teacher. If you want to learn it for real and work hard, they'll teach you for real. you make their school look good.

I slipped a disk a couple of years ago, which limits what I can do in terms of working out. I can use what my brother so eloqently described as "pussy-weights" but that is about it. Contemplating starting jogging in the mornings though. Feel I could do with losing a pound or so.

This is a heads-up for the adult males here ...

When you reach about age 40, your body's natural production of testosterone starts to lessen, anywhere from slightly to dramatically. This is the stuff that keeps you young, energetic, enables you to build muscle mass when working out instead of just getting tired, etc. Google "testosterone" and read up on it, including the 40+ decline.

Most men have no idea this is happening, and your doctor probably won't think to bring it up. Ask to be tested; it's a simple blood test. If you're low, inquire into a prescription (which medical insurance generally does cover) for the stuff. The skin-gel type is best, because then it doesn't go through your liver like pills do and bother it. You may be startled to see the results in a few months.

Just keep the gel away from your lady friends unless you'd like to see them develop deep voices and beards. ;\)

Last caution: This is a serious medical matter; you need to do it under a doctor's testing and monitoring.

Thanks for the tip.

Is it possible a divorce impacts production of testosterone?

People arround me tell me I'm younger and younger since I divorced. \:D

I know it's funny, nevertheless I'm not joking.
Nothing on wiki on that, I continue my searches and if someone has some info... Welcome!

I knocked the dust off my select tech dumb bells yesterday. Although I didn't push it to hard, it's a start. I strategically put them next to my PC; (so they could stare at me). It will interesting how long I'll stick with this time. At 5'3 pushing 190, any thing is better then nothing.

No working out here. I have the slacking mode on. Seriously overweight. I used to box in competitions and so forth but because of the extra weight and partly of my heavy structure I had to go against longer, older and more experienced guys and got beat.

Though I did ten push-ups, squats, abs and the back while showering. That felt good. I should found a new kind of meditation form where you sit, think and workout under shower. For the rich westerners. You can touch yourself too.

My routine workout is usually using small 5-pound barbells to strengthen my upper arm strength and tone them a little.
I sometimes use it when I do squats. I do girl push-ups because my arms are more weaker than my leg muscles. I do crunches for my stomach, and twisting to slim my sides. Then I do those things ballet dancers would do, which is pull my leg behind me up and constantly pump that leg up as high as I can, over and over, to tone my ass and legs. :P

I love running and walking, so hiking is something I'll do from time to time.

My typical workout consists of a few 12oz curls. In between I do several stair climbs to retrieve more 12oz weights. To work on my cardiovascular I generally smoke a cigar or three and switch the channel to one of my teams. That always gets the blood flowing. Between the yelling at the refs, screaming when we score the go ahead goal, and running up and down the stairs for more 12oz weights, I can get pretty winded. I follow that up by wrestling with my cast iron grill. That sumbitch is heavy. Once I get the charcoal going, I select a fine cut of meat and work my brain trying to devise what rub or sauce I am going to slather on my cut of flesh. Out to the grill, where I continue my 12oz curl regimen coupled with some sauna sweating. Gotta sweat out the toxins too. After feasting on the flesh and a few more 12oz curls I incorporate some leg work by doing moutain climbers up the stairs. My workout works for me. I am still able to slip on my parachute pants from 23 years ago and have managed to gain just 10 pounds.

Well Jake I agree there I got in one today with someone and not only did I kick him while he was down but I did everything In my power to destroy him and that is my usual method and I will continue to use it. However it is dangerous to use I just don't care if I kill them or not they should learn not to fuck with someone bigger than them in the first place.

And no charges will be brought up because he threw a 45lb. weight at me. lol

It's fun to see most of the responses actually..
Most are working out to remain fit or for a hobby..
What about working for a change? Doing a few things in the house.. some gardening etc.. it's practically the same as working out with weights.

Ofcourse, I know there are people who do these things and go to the fitness for some relaxation...
But hell, I already met many people whose house looks like a tornado passed, nag their household doesn't advance but still go to the fitness..

Occasional two mile jog.
Cut grass with walk behind.
Weight machine stations...Leg extensions, Seated Press, Lat bar, Seated arms from side to forward thing whatever the fuck you call it.
Things I fall back on at times over the years:
Stretch back of legs.
Alternating front kicks.
Tread mill.
Bench press.
Standing press and curls.
Biking-too big now as I need tractor seat or have to surgically remove seat from ass after ride.
Marine Corps. National Guard.
Traditional Karate that usually degraded into contact.
Throwing hay bales farm shit.
ALOT of rehab stuff. 8 surgeries since 2000.
As far as fighting things:
I have been knocked on My ass some and find that being able to take a hit is vital as throwing punches and kicks.
Also being able to punch with the whole body.
Sex: Three kids now strung between Baseball and Theater.
Tried to talk Her into another one right before sitting down here. I have girlfriends.
Life comment: Best advice I ever read was to learn Karate and Skydiving. Although I was only a Green Belt as I worked to better the basics as time permitted and I only have six jumps over the years, I think these activities have a rounding effect in approaching Life things.

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:
Even Arnold admits to using doctor prescribed steroids


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:
The naturals aspire to have that Greek scuplture look,


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!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7qGvm05swQ

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.

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!

I was doing a ridiculous amount of Tang Soo Do and then my husband was laid off so I felt I should quit ($$$$). I still practice my forms and some of the kicking and punching techniques.

Now, I'm starting to gain weight. I'll probably start lifting (at home) again. My concern is that weight training drives my appetite through the roof.

I'll probably have to do a combination of high-fat/low-carb, high-intensity intervals on my elliptical, and weight training. I'm female and carbs do not like me.

Intense exercise keeps me well adjusted, and I'll forever be attached to it. I weigh 170 and I'm trying to incrementally build mass. I work out 6 days a week: a variety of traditional isotonics and isometrics. I prefer to work in the mid-rep range to maintain my joints. I usually stick with sets of 12-15; so 275lbs on squats, 210 on bench, and 315 on deadlifts.
For cardio/aerobics I run/bike for transportation, and it has worked out fantastically for me. During the winter I ran through the snow/cold from my train to work (about 2 miles), and back at the end of my shift. When summer rolls around, I'll be making the 12 mile bike trip again.

My shoulder is now rehabilitated and I'm back on track but my lifts have suffered somewhat. I'm 152lb 5'7 and benching 190 for 8 reps, my arms went down to 15" while I was resting my shoulder for months, but I'll build back up in no time. I still have very low body fat.

I have one of those excellent p90x pull up bars come a few days ago, but guess what, my door frames in my new flat are all next to corner walls, this means there is no room to put it up ha! Oh well I will just keep going to the gym to do my back routine. My gym is 24/7 pin code access, this is ideal because I sleep through the entire day.

I wonder if anyone will post some workout videos on here.

I really love exercising. I'm not a huge fan of weightlifting, but more of active sports like swimming and running, it really clears my head, boosts creativity and make me feel great inside my body. I also do lots of yoga to keep my body lean and flexible. I also love to put my body to it's limits and do things I never expected by doing things like climbing. Also, I dance a lot!

Nice, it's only logical to choose exercise.

There is nothing negative about weight training, I have done it since I was 17. I find reading occult literature is relaxing between workouts.

I must get to the gym more often although I have Olympic weights in my flat I don't have everything the gym has.

I do it Dinosaur Style.

I have a rather severe situation with one of my legs (motorcycle crash, decades of surgeries, nuff said) that stops me from really going crazy but my main focus is finding really heavy shit and moving it around.

I have a 700 pound boulder in my back yard. I roll it around, any way I can. Out at the barn I move 10"x10"x 8' landscape timbers. I just roll them, pick up and swap ends etc and move them from one of the field to the other. Sometimes back.

I have an olympic bar and several hundred pounds of weight. Sometimes I load that up to what I can carry and walk around with it.

I'm not really picky, varieties of sizes and shapes keep it interesting. I have a 400# marble table top in the back yard I flip over and over (used to be my dining table). Bags of cement are good, anvils are good, sledge hammers on tires are good.

No gym for me. They'd throw me out for trying to slide the equipment around.

Nice! We used to have a tractor tire and flip that as far as we could. I like your D.I.Y. hardcore style. By using your whole body flipping those apparatus around you get those important tie in muscles that usually only swimming can target.

I'm anti machine myself and do everything free weights, I can't do pull downs at a 5-8 reps weight because the weight I need is heavier than my small body ha! Wide grip pull ups for me, lots of them.

I can't have my heavy bag in this flat and it's going to go mouldy left outside in the rain *cries*.

A young boxer comes here to train still and he's about the only one who turns up any more.

The lady that owns the barn where we keep our horse has an old truck that's just sitting there with a tow chain on it. I've considered picking up the chain and seeing if I can drag the truck through the field. That may be my summer workout plan \:\)

I had an old heavy bag for a while. I tried carrying it up and down stairs but my hammered leg wouldn't allow me to continue that workout. It was great though!

Another one that kills is pinch gripping a 25# plate and carrying it around as long as you can. Your hands and forearms start screaming after a while.

Sir, did you state that you are in fact a Dino like myself and my dear mentor's Mr. Brooks D Kubik, Dr. Ken, and Prof. Brad Steiner???

Hmmm, I have always been partial to a heavy sandbag lug and load and a water filled beer keg.

Sigh, some of my best and most torture filled moments were in the garage with the rack and my olympic barbell set.

Sigh, I wish Brooks would bring back his old blog, I used to love contributing to it and talking with him.

Okay for all the sick minded Dinosaur type people here, I offer this workout.

This is what I call my advanced Dino program. I followed this bastard for six weeks and wiped myself out on it.

Day One

1. Bottom Position Rack Squats 5 progressively heavier singles working up to 1 rep max.
2. Bottom Position Rack Half Squats 4 progressively heavier singles working up 1 rep max.
3. Bottom Position Rack Quarter Squats 4 progressively heavier singles working up to 1 rep max.
4. Deadlifts 5 progressively heavier singles working up to 95% of one rep max
5. Quarter Deadlifts in rack 4 progressively heavier singles working up to 95% of one rep max.

Day Two

1. Barrel or Bag Clean and Press 6 Attempts with progressively heavier barrels/kegs
2. Nightmare carry time You will need two heavy dumbbells, a heavy barbell, a sandbag and a barrel/keg. You will carry the barbell deadlift style across the lawn and drop it, pick up the dumbbells and walk back across the lawn, drop the dumbbells and pick up the sand bag and carry it back across the lawn, drop it and carry the barrel back. On and on as non-stop as you can.
3. Lay on ground and curse the day you ever heard of D.T.

This is a good all round one, with more of a focus on legs and back. Only perform two days a week.

Now that the snow has melted away enough, I've been doing 60-70 miles a week on bike. The bulk of that being on the way to work, but there is alot I also do just to work out. Its good cardio.

I really don't know much about who's who in the game... I've just always been attracted to trying to lift/move heavy objects versus the aesthetics of bodybuilding. I've only recently run across Kubik's blog and have been enjoying reading his stuff.

Trying to make a sort of set workout of it all really came from reading about Bill Kazmaier trying to press the Inch dumbell (176Lbs) one handed. The main difference between this dumbell and others is that the grip is super fat (2-3") versus the traditional skinny grip. That led me to grip strength, bending nails etc which led to stripping the glamor off of everything to do with working out.

It's really an old story for me though. My brother and I grew up in the country and one of our pastimes was to take the trash can (one of those old metal kinds) out and see how far we could fill it with snakes (non venomous, of course). The novelty for me became seeing how big of a rock I could flip while my brother caught whatever was underneath. I got strong doing that (and throwing hay bales). Using my body to push/pull/lift things became something I was always testing (and still am).

These days I'm into it for building sheer animal power and nothing else. I'm too old and too scarred for vanity and, truth be told, I was never all that pretty even in youth when those things seem to peak.

Anyway, I've been reading Big Steel for a while. Building this kind of raw strength, to me, has many-an-application.

Cool stuff, I actually made my own challenge dumbbell for kicks.

I took a regular dumbbell handle and wrapped it in roll after roll of insulation tape until the handle was a 3 inch thick handle.

It was a little bastard of a thing, which I called Matt's Challenge Dumbbel. I would set it up with about 30 kilos or more and try and lift the thing. Boy, oh boy, those old timers had real grip strength.

There are some good books, DVD's and great tools on hand strength, which you can get from the people at Ironmind enterprises, which is a company I highly recommend for grip strength enthusiasts.

Man, I was like a committed single minded Dinosaur for years. Still train, but that obsession has dried out a little.

You have to check out the above link. I don't know who is posting all these old articles (maybe Anthony Ditillo's son?) but there are absolute gems there.

And something to dream about.
