So basically i descided i would take up the hobby of working out to sorta counter the guitar playing...

Playing guitar.. do those finicky little movements.. get annoyed take a break and just push yourself off the ground for a few minutes kinda deal ( major stress reliever )

So i sorta wanted to start a progress keeper for anyone else who is working out

basically i focus on abs, arms, thighs, and core

So my workout includes a few simple things

Pushups ( core )
Situps (abs)
Crunches (abs )
Leg Lifts (abs + thighs)
Bicept Curls ( arms )
Arm squeezy thing ( arms )
vertical press (arms)
and squats

currently i can do 40 pushups in a row,
50-80 situps in a row before i stop
90-100 crunches
25-30 leg lifts
15 bicept curls at 25 pounds
20 virtical presses at 25 pounds
and 30 squats

what about everyone else.. + suggested other exerizes smile.gif?

Well having strong muscles(not talking about pro powerlifter level) is very healthy and it can for example prevent back pains(wich I had severe ones before I started working out) And I would say muscle training on any level would be a MUST for a guy to stay in really good shape.

I've been working out for many years now eventhough I had a pretty long break wich ended just recently. So I feel pretty confident on saying you can ask me if you have something you wanna know wink.gif

I'm pretty much a brute.

My workouts are broken into 4 day splits.

Monday: Chest/triceps/abs
Tuesday: Quads, hamstrings, calves
Wednesday: Back, Biceps, lower back
Thursday: Shoulders, traps, abs

Now during rugby, I have practice on tuesday and thursday, but still hit monday and wednesday.


max bench was 405, max squat 495 (was scared to go higher), and deadlift was 455.

No clue what it is now, probably somewhere in the 350 range. I did 315 4x about a month and a half ago, but I don't really keep track anymore. Now I have to lose 30 lbs to play rugby tongue.gif.

Ive been working out since i was 18, and im 39 now..

My schedule is similar to his 4 day week schedule..escept i go 5 days a week
Im 6'2 and weighing 240 with 8 to 10% bodyfat...

Monday - Chest and back and abs
Tuesday- cardio
Wednesday- Legs
Thursday- Arms, cardio and abs
Friday- Shoulders and calves

I usually split it up after 3 months of being on the same schedule, to some different.. Like chest and arms or chest and shoulders, but i always do legs by themselves.

Very important to do your legs

just recently i started upper body stuff. I do 5 minutes 6 nights a week- iv got a upper body resistance trainer thing. Should i not be doing this every night? Would it be better to leave rest days? I never feel aches the next day because i always warm up/stretch/warm down but would i get better muscle growth from taking rest days?

I have no Idea what a "upper body resistance trainer" is, but when you actually try to grow muscles in size, you REALLY shouldn't train same muscles 6xtimes aweek. Then again you do just 5 min? tongue.gif I don't know if you have some magical mean bean machine, but 5 minutes sounds like nothing. If you really wanna grow muscles you should start by going to the gym... smile.gif

Tuubsu is spot on. Nothing is going to replace the iron in the gym. There's some good high intensity programs out that I would go to if it weren't so pricy, but check out www.crossfit.com it combines strength with speed and endurance and is a guaranteed ball buster.

Its a kind of air pump. theres 4 different exercises that target differnt muscle groups- like lats, traps, biceps, triceps and pecks.

Iv only just started and though itd be a good way to start ooff kinda slowly without hurting myself.

I don't wanna crush your dreams of an easy way but, if your a weed and you wanna add some muscles... I really don't believe it will happen with that, I'm sure Goliath and outlaw would agree on that...

I still recommend going to the gym. I have some experience about those kind of training equipment, which you pump or bend or what ever And with great confidence I would say they can add a little to your strenght but, for muscle growth gym is the only answer, besides I don't know about that pump of yours but, you usually "outgrow" these equipment with your strenght pretty quickly...


Oh! if you decide to go to the gym... Remember to eat well escpesially a lot of proteins! muscle growth doesn't happen in one night wink.gif

Your welcome! I'm just happy theres finally a topic where I can help also smile.gifwink.gif

Just one thing I would like to add: Always have to remember the three factors: training, sleeping and eating, if one of these is screwed up you won't get to your goals wink.gif

Muscle growth happens in one night and every night!

But yeah, any jerk can move weights in a gym, the difference is the big jerks eat right and get plenty of sleep too. If you're a rookie around the weights, it might not be a bad idea to pay a trainer to show you some exercises at first to make sure you don't injure yourself and lay the foundation for beginning to understand how to grow.

Be careful though, it's easy to get sucked in once you start seeing success. I got sucked in to the point where I was big-o-rexic, which basically made it so now I have to buy "big and tall" clothes and nothing fits quite like it should. Having to trim back down to ~250 was almost devastating news to me since I know my strength and size are going to take a hit, but I enjoy playing rugby so I'm going to have to get down there. Started at 285, at 270 and dropping currently, but boy has my strength taken a hit sad.gif.

uuuh! touché, you got me there wink.gif

I started going to the gym because, I used to be REALLY fat (175cm, 120 kg) and I was "naturally a little stronger then other kids of my age, so it felt like a good idea...

Now as I've gotten the weight down, I just can't see myself quitting this(and theres no reason also) BUT, I can see myself bigger and stronger in the future... cool.gif
