Title: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Corycaly on January 07, 2018, 01:07:09 PM
I decided to start sports again this year to lose some weight and muscle my back. I know it won't be easy but I think I may not be the only one in that situation!

Let's face it, it's easier to do it when you have a support group or friends to help you!
Together, we can make it!

Post here your sports goals for this year, come cry or rejoice with us!

Here is my program so far:
monday: "body balance": agility, stretch and soft gym
thuesday: dance (not tutu dance, it's dynamic nowadays music dance)
wednesday: stretching
thursday: abdos, hips and bottom muscles

It makes 4 hours a week. I will add probably bike during week-ends and walks.

What about you? Do you have new years sports resolutions?

Where I go to uni, you don't really need sports resolutions. The town is too crowded to park so there's no point bringing your car, and it's up in the mountains so you're gonna be literally walking uphill both ways to anywhere.

I'm definitely bringing my workout routine back to the foreground. The holidays were not easy, and I'm still stuck with a bunch of Christmas candy. But I've realigned with a heavy workout Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, with lighter stuff on the other days.

And I really need to excise snacks from the menu and eat smaller meals. I don't eat all that much to begin with, so it's not too bad, but I grow complacent too quickly and end up bingeing on this or that and ruining my diet. It's too easy to forget how quickly progress can be lost.

Best of luck to you Cory! With determination I'm sure you'll reach your goals! =)


It took me a while but I started lifting weights last summer. It hasn't made me skinnier but I've noticed improvements in health overall.

My routine is usually 3 times a week, albeit without a schedule. In about 30 to 45 minutes I try to get one of these routines in:
Routine 1:
4 x 25 curls
4 x 25 shrugs
4 x 5 lateral flies
4 x 25 tricep extensions
4 x 15 shoulder presses

Routine 2:
4 x 30 squats
4 x 5 deadlifts
4 x 10 lunges

Now to get on that diet...

Imagine an MR weight watchers support group, that would be fab  :thumbsup:

Personally since October (and into New Years resolution) I’ve been building up to thirty mins biking on the hardest gear and trying to start dumbbells 4 times a week. I think 5kg weights might be a bit too Light for development though  :hmm:

I'm sorry, not to derail us, but SaiHawkeye what a pleasant surprise. You're sure coming out of nowhere old friend.

I know--I had to do a double take on this topic for a moment.
The man, the myth, the legend.

Thanks for the welcome you guys! xD

GreenTrap, 5 kg is plenty to start with depending on the type of workout and goal. A lot of people think of building up muscle in general but they don't realize that you have to build up the supporting muscles too. This is why I would suggest free weights (like the dumbbells yo mentioned) over machines unless necessary.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: MahluaandMilk on January 07, 2018, 08:06:32 PM
I wish somebody told me about supporting muscles back in my early days. I did a lot of core stuff without any back stuff--now my back is whack. I mean I could probably do stretches daily and build it up to be better but I'm horrible at keeping any semblance of a schedule. My life is too much like a random magical girl anime for that. I wish that statement were only a joke.

You can still fix your build by doing the appropriate exercises. TBH, the back is probably the second most ignored muscle group other than the legs. xD

I meant more along the lines of support muscles in your muscle groups though. For example, take Person A and Person B both bench press 80 kg. Persona A does free weights and Person B uses a machine. If you switch their methods with each other, who would struggle more?

The answer is Person B.

Although they're lifting the same amount of weight, Person B isn't building up the support/stabilizer muscles which makes it more awkward for them to bench the same amount of weight in free weights.

Ever since I left my old ups job I've really let myself go. I mean I was already sort of a big guy and still am, but I did slimmed down a bit when I was still unloading trucks. And now those two years of picking up boxes have now gone to waste. So...

*Cues one punch man theme*

one hundred push-ups...

one hundred sit-ups

one hundred squats...

And a 10KM run everyday...

*Proceeds to die from exhaustion*

Right until your body breaks from over work.

I am also trying to build up to 100 push-ups again though. That's part of my routine as well. I got there right before graduating, but I fell of the wagon after that.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: MahluaandMilk on January 07, 2018, 08:37:21 PM
Oddly my old workout was something like 100 push ups and 200 crunches and some leg stuff. My horizons have expanded since, but I don't really have a set enough schedule for that kinda thing, as I said.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.

I might exercise when my schedule goes down in a couple months but in the meantime I just want to use my extra time for drawing.

Post by: SaiHawkeye on January 07, 2018, 08:46:54 PM
Working UPS definitely does burn calories, I can agree with that. x'D

TBH, the pushups, situps, and squats aren't much. It's the 10 km run that will wear your body out fast.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Coryn on January 07, 2018, 10:48:32 PM
Yeah, that's the main bit.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Corycaly on January 08, 2018, 12:02:09 PM
In one hour, I will go to my first sports session of the year!
I hope to keep my motivation steady (and to not catch the cold that so many of my students have currently T__T)
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Fronomenal on January 08, 2018, 02:13:58 PM
Good luck to ya Co! Hopefully a cold won't wavier your determination. Press on!
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Corycaly on January 10, 2018, 02:10:33 PM
I started sports again! I had the help from an instructor who made a special program specially for me! It will help me to improve my back hips and abdomen muscles.
He taught me how to use the machines and which movements to make. ^o^

Problem is that my cold became a full bronchitis today: no sports for some days for me. T___________T

Don't let it get you down. It's important to hop right back in once you can. I recall reading once that it takes 7 weeks of doing something to form a habit, so make sure to get back on it and stay on it!
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: MK on January 10, 2018, 03:22:14 PM
When you're sick you can still exercise as long as you're not sick enough to keep you in bed all day, just lower the intensity a bit.  Like instead of jogging you can walk a little above normal speed.
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Corycaly on January 12, 2018, 04:59:42 PM
I had tp wait some days because of the fever, the coughing, sniffing and tiredness but I'm impatient to go back!
The program has lots of varied exercices and machines. I loved the ones I tried to far!
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: SaiHawkeye on January 13, 2018, 03:25:46 AM
The same thing happened to me last week. The weather here goes from 10 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit day to day so it's tough not getting sick.

You've gotta take care of your health before working out. =D

So how is everyone holding up on this front? I haven't faltered in my routine after 4 weeks (discounting the night I missed because I was at work super late). So far I'm down 8 pounds and a belt size. Which puts me back at my normal weight and undoes the damage done over 2017 when I basically stopped working out, weighing in, or watching what I ate.

8 Pounds is good, was that since last post?  :ohmy:

I've lost 3 pounds this year, which means I'm halfway through my overall goal of losing 50 pounds from 2017-July  8) My exercise has been hampered by frost and light snow, so I can't go out much
Title: Re: new year resolution: I decided to start sport again.
Post by: Coryn on February 08, 2018, 10:13:16 AM
8 pounds was over 4 weeks of diet and working out. Which leaves me 10 pounds off from my goal of 190, which accounts for also putting some muscle on. Given my height and build, I'm pretty thin at 190.
