I'm in.

I'm 6'00'' tall and weight in at 53kg. I'm aiming to gain up to 10kg to fill out, as well as increase both my general strength and flexibility; spending my childhood years hunched over a Gameboy did some damage to my back.

I gained 5kg and did some good strength training within two months at the start of this year, but lost motivation. I've already doubled my daily intake and improved the contents of my diet, and started back with the system I was using before.

I'm tempted to join in, but I wouldn't really know what goal(s) to set. I'm also not interested in joining a gym or anything. For me it would be more about just having something to put energy into instead of doing nothing.

Anyone know of some good exercise regimes involving just sit-ups and push-ups and stuff?

Aim to complete 10 sets of 10 push ups. For each push-up, you should move slowly and allow for your nose to touch the ground. Don't let your neck bend down at all to do this; your body should be a plank. Upon completing a set, sit on your knees and extend your arms to the ceiling to stretch. Consciously stretch your muscles rather than just allowing the basic motion to do the job for you. Stretch again at the end of your workout.
Once you're comfortable with this exercise, increase intensity by placing your toes on an elevated platform, like a couch or chair, and complete the push up from there. The broader spectrum of motion will stretch your muscles more and work them harder.
You can also move your hands in from shoulder width to an inward position, side-by-side one-another directly in front of your face. This will work different muscle groups.

As for sit ups, just be sure to do them slowly and deliberately contract your abdominals when completing one. You don't need to bring your upper body all the way up (i.e. head to knees); even sitting up by an inch is enough to effectively work the muscle group, but do aim to increase your range of motion over time. I'm a fan of ab wheels over sit-ups, personally; they're cheap tools, and they'll leave you sore on your first attempt. Afterward, they're great for maintaining and refining form.

Hi yes I am in

I am not really sure what I can do but I need to lose weight (130 --> at least 120 lbs, dunno if I can do it in 90 days tho) so I'll start by eating less and not making desserts.

cool that this is a thing again but I'm again in really good shape. I'm eating healthy, about to start training again for the next cross country season (coach told me to take a two week break after the season ended, the break ends next Friday), and I'm doing workouts everyday to improve my upper body strength and core. I'm gonna start training for a half marathon in the winter/spring.

I did find something helpful about losing weight during the first time I trained for cross country though. This could help you lose weight a lot quicker:

running is a great way to lose poundage; biking too. Most people while doing these things tend to stop when they are tired. That's what you can't do. When you're tired, that's your mind telling you that you are out of energy, and are now burning fat to keep going. You need to keep going after your mind tells you to stop, you need to push yourself farther than you ever have before. That's how I went from not being able to run a mile, to being able to run 8 miles in three months.

People also assume that once they done running, they are done with their workout. This is what I need to change in myself this year, because I became way too dangerously skinny from just running (107 lbs around 5/7-5/8). When you are finished running, take a little break of maybe a couple minutes. Get some water and stuff. Then you need to do accelerators in order to not damage your legs. This is very important to not injuring yourself. All an accelerator is is a short run that is broken up into 4 parts of different acceleration levels. So for the first 25 meters go relatively slow, then go to about the middle of full speed, then about three fourths full speed, and then full speed. Do this 4 TIMES while taking breaks in between to recover.

After that comes core and strengthening. For that what I usually do is about 25 pushups, 50 situps, 25 more pushups, 1 minute plank, 50 crunches, and then 10 triangle pushups. I would try to start low with these and then work your way up.

Immediately after your run you should drink a tall glass of chocolate/regular milk. Calcium helps strengthen bones and prevent injury.


EATING:

I've assembled a pretty cheap, good diet for people looking for to eat healthy too. If you do the workout described above you are going to need to eat healthy, or you may become sick or injured.
- So for a breakfast your gonna need atleast a toaster, if not a toaster oven. For breakfast make some cheese bagels, you can buy the bagels at a store for cheap and the cheese too. If you want instructions on how to make this hmu. Always eat a banana too with your breakfast, it will help prevent cramps and will protect the muscles from injury.
- Post-run (workout should be in the morning if you can) you should have eggs. Anyway you want them is fine as long as its healthy, its good to get protein after an intense workout.
- Snacks should always be either fruit, or a something carb oriented like a dinner roll type of thing.
- Dinner is where you can be a bit lenient, don't go overboard on the unhealthy things; try to keep it pasta oriented when you can.
- Keep your drinks to water and milk. DRINK 50-60 OUNCES OF WATER A DAY. You need to stay hydrated, but do not over hydrate yourself. You could probably have a beer or glass of wine at dinner (not really a problem for me yet.)


This can look intimidating at first but if you start low and work your way up you would be shocked at how good you can get. I know I was.

Also buy running shoes, not sure if I mentioned that but always buy running shoes or you'll do damage to your feet. Try to run on sidewalk and trail only, don't run on grass if you don't have to.


If you try this I guarantee you won't be sorry!

op updated

My goals is to bring up my left Tricep and Bicep, Squat 225lb, Dead 300lb, Row 135 or 80 db row and do 10 chins.

Current squat is 185 3x5, 2 chins (lol) the last time I deadlifted a few mounts ago I did 250 for three, and I can do 95 for 5X5 row. These goals are lofty, but I will make it or come close. Btw I am 185 and little less than 20% bf and eating more. I was cutting but I think tht I was cutting too deep and slowed down my metabolism and kinda stalled losing Bf. Now I seem to be losing more fat but eating more. I don't care how much fat I gain I'm going to cut any way mid January.
