3 times a week, ride my bike for an hour each day to and from work and to the gym.

I SHOULD work out, but I don't. I used to lift a weight every day but then I lost ambition for that too.

Every day...

just do as many push-ups as I can before I go to bed... for the lulz.

EDIT: And I walk my dog when I have time


better do 'em in the morning. that way you use your arms all day and you up the effect a little. doing them before you go to bed is the smartest idea, but there are different schools of thought on this.

Doing it in the morning gets straight to burning fat. I think.

about 5 days a week
Running away from this earth.
May it pass away in the beautiful flames that it was created for.
Because when tomorrow fails to come,
today is just not the same.
Inflamed earth.
Roses.
In this hope.
For all i care set it all ablaze.

I cycle everywhere I go in the local area ('cus a car would use up all the money I put into buying overpriced monstrosity-pedals like my GT-10!) and Everyday I use two power-balls (hehe...) simultaneously before I play guitar - It's the ultimate shred workout and it's slowly making my arms look a lot less girl-like.

Ok... sometimes I do them before I shower too... thought you might like to know...


better do 'em in the shower. no wait, thats bull.

seriously, working out early in the day grosses the highest result. don't exercise right before going to bed because you produce endorpines and they could keep you awake.

THE penis? You mean there is a one penis to rule them all?

I go to the local gym twice a week, but I usually go running every now and then, when I feel like it.
#26
Twice/Thrice a week, if I can. Sometimes only once a week.

I want to get going on some HIIT, bump up my fitness a bit.

Grosses the highest result for what? All depends what you want to do. If you want to lose weight and be fit then probably yes, as your energy reserves have been used up during sleep when you wake up and exercise you will be more likely to get into that fat burning zone, which if i can remember from school is I think 30-40% of your max heart rate. What that means is if you work at about 30% of your maximum effort you are more likely to burn fat, working at that rate is known as aerobic exercise where (again if my memory serves me) oxygen is used to burn carbohydrate (and once that is used up, fat) stores.

The alternative is to work from 70% and up of your maximum effort which is known as anaerobic, what this means is your body uses up oxygen faster than it can get it in through breathing. Your body dips into it's more immediate stores of energy called adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) and glycogen. Once these stores are used up then the muscle fibres themselves start to break down. Why it is important after training hard to eat something straight away, or take some kind of protein supplement during exercise.

Oh and I used to weight train 4 times a week and play rugby 3 times a week, intense aerobic and anaerobic work.

like i said above: '...but there are different schools of thought on this....'

and i find too many fitness freak people throw a whole lot of information with difficult words like glycogen and anaerobic at kids who are just trying to put on a little muscle.

keep it simple so he stays motivated.

thanks though. interesting stuff.

So opinions on:

Harder work for shorter periods OR
Less work for extended periods

Which is best for fat burn? I find that long periods of moderate work the best, I'm losing 2lbs a week through this (1lbs through excersie and 1lbs through dieting).

Harder work for shorter periods will work on muscle mass.
Less work for extended periods will favour definition more.
I play 6 days a week of organised basketball + about an hour a day. I also do 4 hours of volleyball a week at school and go for the occasional run or bike ride.

Once I got fit, I just loved the feeling and wanted to continue to improve.

well i favour giving info where info is required, slightly more useful than giving a vague "if you work out you will get muscle" which is a little bit obvious. The problem is do some things wrong and you will not put any muscle on at all. I've lost count of how many times i've heard people ask about not putting on any muscle yet they work out. Things like waking up in the morning doing a lot of press ups and wondering why you aren't getting any bigger. You could do 500 pressups and not really notice anything while another guy does 500 and notices a big difference, in that case the diets would come into play.

So if you found it interesting but didn't understand what I said read up on it, it not as complicated as say, learning to play the guitar. Anyway yes I gave a detailed answer because i'm interested in the subject and like talking about it, is that a crime. Hopefully people find it interesting and read into it more.

I ride horses 3 days per week, about 45 minutes each session. I also teach lessons so i'm running around following runaway horses.
I also go to the gym as often as possible, though lately i've been slacking =(
