I've recently joined a new gym, which has everything, and even though I met with a personal trainer and I have an upper body workout, I'm wondering what the rest of you guys (and girls) who do that sort of thing do...

I ask because tomorrow's another upper body day, and I think I might want to try something new.

bench
flys
decline bench
incline bench
dumbbell presses
incline db presses
decline db presses

(you can also hit shoulders as it works the same muscles most of the time)

I like. Reminds me of what I did in high school.

Now, after a warmup, I usually do flyes, bar bench, db chest press, dips, db military press, lat pull down and cable rows.

I'd also bet you can probably lift a hell of a lot more than I can right now. My primary interest is toning, though.

That entire workout is made for tone actually

Just do more reps, less weight

If you want to gain strength hit your reps like 3 or 4 times with heavy weight, if you wana tone do about 9-12 in sets of 4 or 5

Fitness
Obviously, there"s not nearly enough time nor space to give the
entire rundown on fitness, nutrition and conditioning. So here I"m
only going to provide the bare basics. This is enough to get you
started. If you wish to pursue your fitness and nutrition further (and I
recommend you do), there are recommendations in the Further
Reading section at the end of the book.
I"ll divide this up in three ways: weightlifting, nutrition and cardio.
Most guys, when they want to get into shape, they focus on cardio
first, weightlifting second and nutrition last. This is completely
opposite of importance. Whether you"re looking to gain weight, lose
weight or simply tone up, nutrition is by far most important,
followed by weightlifting.
1. Lift Weights
No excuses. Lift weights. If you"re trying to gain weight, all of your
gains will be stimulated by lifting. If you want to lose weight, lifting
weights will raise your metabolism (burning more calories each day)
and prevent any loss of muscle as you diet. If you simply want to
tone up and maintain good health, weights will shape your muscle
for a more pronounced physique.
There"s no way around it: join a gym. Push ups and sit ups WILL
NOT do. A pull up bar doesn"t count. Cheap 10- pound dumbbells
don"t count. Get to a gym and start lifting and don"t stop.
Weightlifting has been tied to so many physiological and mental
benefits, it"s stupid. One more time for the thick-headed and
stubborn:
YOU MUST LIFT WEIGHTS TO CHANGE YOUR BODY!
Once you get to the gym, start with machines if you"re a novice. But
move on to free weights as soon as you can.
185
You want to focus compound exercises. What this means is you
want to do exercises that stimulate multiple muscle groups at a time.
Too many guys show up to the gym, pump their biceps for 30
minutes and then leave thinking they worked out.
They didn"t do anything.
Doing three good sets of squats, bent rows and pull ups will yield
much better gains in your biceps than curling a dumbbell all day
will. These are the exercises you should focus on:
Squats, Bench Press, Military Press, Dead lifts, Leg Press, Back
Rows, Pull Ups, and Dips
You could start with these exercises three times a week, split
between legs one day, chest and shoulders one day, back and arms
the third day.
The reason you want to do these compound exercises, is not only
because they work more muscles at a time, but they stimulate your
entire nervous system, which helps your body synthesize protein
faster and more efficiently. A great "newbie" workout program is
called the Rippetoe System. I fully recommend it.
Also, if you can afford it, hiring a personal trainer to get you started
towards your fitness goals is a great investment.
2. Nutrition
Consciously determining how much food and what food goes into
your body is the most determining factor towards your health and
your body"s appearance.
The first thing you must determine is how many calories you need to
eat each day. This is easy. Take your weight, multiply it by 15 to get
your daily maintenance calories. Then subtract 500 if you want to
lose weight or add 500 if you want to gain weight. For instance, I
186
weigh about 180 pounds. 180 x 15 = 2700. I must eat 2700 calories
a day to maintain my current weight, 2200 a day to lose weight and
3200 a day to gain weight. If you weighed 150 lbs, you would eat
1750 a day to lose weight and 2750 a day to gain weight, etc.
Counting calories can seem like a big hassle, but it"s pretty simple
once you start learning how much is in each kind of food and what
kind of calories are present in them. NutritionData.com is a great
free site to help you start.
Next, we must decide the proportions of calories to put into our
body. This isn"t as important if you"re trying to gain weight as if
you"re trying to lose weight. Generally, if you"re gaining weight you
want to a 40% carb, 30% protein, 30% fat diet. If you"re losing
weight, you want less fat and carbs and more protein. I"m going to
leave the calorie proportions to other sites and guides " if you are
that serious, you will look them up yourself.
Instead, I"ll make some general statements about what your diet
should be:
- NO FAST FOOD. Way too much fat. Way too much salt,
cholesterol. This shlt really is a nightmare for any health-conscious
person. Not to mention they come in ridiculous portions.
- NO DRESSINGS OR SAUCES. This means: any salad dressing,
mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, butter, etc. All of these
things are PURE FAT, and not the good kind of fat either.
(Exceptions: Ketchup, mustard, jelly, guacamole)
- LESS CHEESE. Cheese is great, but it provides a lot of
unnecessary fat.
- NO FRIED FOODS. Again, it"s all fat. That means french fries.
Sorry.
187
- BAD CARBS. Bad carbs include just about any grain or starch
under the sun. Most breads (especially stuff like Bagels, pastries,
croissants, muffins), potatoes (french fries), even stuff like corn and
rice. Cut out pasta if you can. There"s a vast amount of research
showing that processed carbs are what make you fat " not actual fat
intake.
- LESS (OR NO) ALCOHOL. Alcohol calories are useless to your
body, they go straight to fat.
- NO SODA. The amount of sugar and sodium fvcks with your
metabolism and causes you to store more fat.
- Eat fruits and vegetables.
- Eat TONS of lean protein. Baked Chicken. Sirloin steak. Baked
turkey. COLD CUTS! No salamni, pastrami, ham, bacon or
whatever. Eggs are great too (especially egg whites).
- Milk
- Good fats: peanut butter, nuts (almonds, cashews, peanuts),
avocados, eggs.
- Take supplements: multi-vitamins and fish oil. Buy some whey
protein and consider getting some creatine (especially if you"re
bulking up).
Constantly check with NutritionData.com for what you"re eating.
You"d be amazed what you think is healthy is actually unhealthy.
3. Cardio
188
First thing, under no circumstance should cardio be your only
exercise. Well, I take that back. Cardio is better than no exercise.
But if you"re serious about chiseling your body into a modern-day
Adonis, it won"t suffice by itself. When you do cardio, not only do
you burn fat, but you burn muscle mass as well. You must
supplement your cardio with weightlifting to maintain your muscle
mass while burning your fat.
Second of all, you only want to do cardio if you"re trying to lose
weight or maintain your weight. Even then, it"s the least important
component and still optional.
What cardio is great for is cardiovascular health, blood pressure,
energy levels, etc.
Cardio is pretty straightforward, so I"ll only make a couple
comments:
- Walking for 30 minutes is not cardio. It may be if you"re a 50 year
old woman and wildly overweight. But if you"re in any reasonable
shape, simply walking for 30 minutes is nothing.
- Elliptical machines are probably the best for cardio as far as effortto-
calories-burned ratio is concerned. They"re really fvcking boring
though.
- Running and intense swimming are the best ways to burn calories
in the shortest amount of time.
- Unless it"s 20 degrees outside, treadmills are for pointless. You get
half the work out as running on a hard surface. Find a track or run
outside.
- Don"t run more than 3 times a week until you"ve been running for
a long time. Running takes a big toll on your joints and bones. You
189
have to build up some tolerance to it.
- If you play a sport, it can be a perfect way to get your exercise in.
Tennis, racquetball, basketball, soccer, etc.
- If you live in a big city (Boston, Chicago, New York, San
Francisco) consider getting around by bike. It"s convenient and
extremely healthy.
4. Setting Goals
The biggest problem people seem to have isn"t setting an exercise
regimen, but sticking to it. The best thing I

I do renagade push-ups, kettle ball swings and run.

I figure that hit's the whole body, plus my job is pretty physical so that's all I need.

Oddly enough my personal trainer fired me. I kept showing up drunk, and throwing up after he worked the shitt outta me.

It's good I couldn't afford him anyway. I had no ideal why I even hired one.

How expensive are they?

If you're creative you can probably hire one for one day a week so he can help build a routine for you and show you how to do different exercises. They are expensive, but I think if you're creative you can still make good use of one.

This is the workout I do at home: http://www.muscleandstrength.com...

It gets the job done right! Hopefully you'll see a few in there that you can mix into your own workout routine.

I ask because tomorrow's another upper body day, and I think I might want to try something new.

Here is what I do at the basic gym I have

Upper Body(Arms and Shoulders):

- Bicep Curls
- Forearm Curls(essentially you hold the dumbell on ur fingertips, slowly curl the weight up till ur hand is in a fist, then slowly curl ur wrist up. You'll notice how well it works the forearm once you do it
- Lat Pulls(for the shoulders)
- French(reverse) Curls
- Shoulder Shrugs
- Dips
- Push-ups(Hurricanes, diamond, one-legged, wide, and normal)

Core(Chest and Abdominals):

- Bench Press
- Butterflies
- Incline Press
- Inclined Sit-Ups(i'm at the point where i'm pretty much upside down and bang out 75-100 near each time)
- Weighted Inclined Sit-ups(hold onto a weight while you do the sit-ups.)
- Jackknifes
- Bicycle Kicks
- Plank

Now what I usually do with the last three is alternate while not stopping in between. So I'll do 20 jackknives, 20 bicycle kicks, and plank for 20 seconds, then wash rinse repeat until i hit 180 total(60 each)

- Abdominal Pulls

To explain this best what i pretty much do i use the machine for lat pulls. I'll change the bar from a wide bar, to a smaller bar.

Of course I set a weight(i'm at about 100 pounds) and once thats done i position myself standing up facing AWAY from the machine. I then pull the bar down to my shoulders, holding it against the back of my neck in such a manner that my arms are locked, and that bar isnt moving from against my neck/shoulders. I then bend slightly at the knees.

Now once all this is set, I bend slowly at the waist until my upper body is parralel with the floor. I then raise back up slowly till i'm standing(knees slightly bent) again.

The added bonus with these is it works out the lower back muscles as well.

Lower Body:

Squats
Leg Press
Double Leg Butterflies
Monster Walks(with an elastic weight band around the ankles)
Strafes(with elastic weight band)
Lunges

Some additional advice rep/workout wise

What I do is:

Day 1: Upper/Core
Day 2: Lower
Day 3: Rest(no workout)

So that way there is two days rest in between working out each section.

Set/Reps

Muscle Building (power gains): Higher Weight, lower reps(4-6 reps), 3 sets each

Muscle Toning(endurance gains): Lower weight, higher reps(10-16), 3 sets each

Like for example, if i were to bicep curl for muscle building, I would personally use 30 pound dumbbells at 4-6 reps each set, at 3 sets.

If i were to bicep curl for toning, I would use 20 pound dumbells, at 10-16 reps each, at 3 sets.

Nutrition wise its about protein intake whether you are building or toning. You're gonna need it either way. A good rule of thumb is that you should be consuming half ur body weight in grams of protein each day(a bunch of that coming post workout. So at the 180 pounds I am, I consume 90 grams of protein daily, and consume about 35-40 grams post workout.

Some high protein foods:

Soy Milk
Peanut Butter
Really any nut based food will give you the highest protein intake with the least amount of caloric intake. Meats(specifically red meats) and dairy products give you protein sure, but not nearly as much as a glass of soy milk and peanut butter sandwich(with about 2 tablespoon fulls of peanut butter) would.

Keep in mind this sh!t takes time to develop. If you want lasting, and healthy gains, ur gonna be at it for months upon months. The good news is eventually you hit the point i'm at, where ur body craves working out, and you get a twisted pleasure out of the pain and exertion it takes lol.

And start feeling a little depressed if you miss a gym day for whatever reason

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I used to workout.. punch the heavy bag and speed bag alot. That was awesome. Heavy bag is great for cardio and strength... but then I started working outside in the sun for 12 hours, and I didn't feel like working out after that. I just felt like sleeping.

But now I'm in school so I've started working out again.

I typically just go and do whatever looks cool for about an hour. Still trying to get something set, but at least I'm doing something to keep somewhat active. Usually it's something simple. Pushups, pull ups, a few different machines, 500 reps of various forms of crunches, curls, seated bench press, inclined chest press...

But I've come to realize that having muscles has almost nothing to do with being able to work hard. So I just workout when I want to do something, which is like every other day.

But I think you've gotten some good feedback already in this thread.

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

I like heavy bags, but speed bags piss me off. I eventually did figure it out, but it wasn't worth it.
