Fitness Experts-Workout Schedule

Postby RiRi » Fri, 29 Jul 2005 11:23 pm

Right I'll start off about myself

I'm currently overweight (tats a doh) but not into the extreme overweight side yet almost a 29 on BMI.

Currently I'm working out a fitness schedule to make myself fit by October (3 months)

I'm wondering if its possbile to get myself down to the acceptable BMI by That time?

Could i have some tips?

Ok I've set out in my head already and It's already in motion. The Diet i'll follow and the training i'll do

Diet:

Morning -> Cereal with Milk and A fruit (Banana For Energy) Cereal coz it's high wheat and less starchy i think

Afternoon -> Light Lunch maybe A bit of rice or a bit of noodles with little fatty food just chicken (No skin), Veggies to keep myself healthy.

A healthy diet needs meat too right?

Dinner -> Rich with Veggies Meat slightly heavier than lunch but not by alot?

Workout:

I seperated it into Different Days and When I'll do it

I do running in the morning or Evenings
Workout during the Morning/Afternoon

For Gym I'll be doing things mainly to my legs and chest area
Benchpress and er the leg exercise thing (don't know the name)
BUt generally to strengthen both areas for my Fitness test
(Yea i'm going into army and i'm trying to avoid tat 3mths extra i rather do it on my own and feel good about myself)

Mondays: Running(Morning), 100 Situps, 3 sets of Squats with 13 Repitions while doing it.
Tuesdays: Gym(Morning/Afternoon), Rest for the day.
Wednesday: RUnning (Morning), 50Pushups, Weightlifts(Arms and Squats) same as above
Thursday: Gym Morning: Rest
Friday: Running (Morning), 100Situps, Weightlifts(Arms, Squats)
Sat and Sunday : Rest
(OF course i follow my diet throughout the thing )


I don't have proper equipment to train my entire body at home so i have to go to the gym and since i'm going there i might as well do the whole body =p

Anyway i already started (Squats, Weightlifting), but i'm having aches and pain
Is tat natural or it is coz i dun do proper warmups =X
(Yea I tend to slack back on the warmups coz i'm on attachment now and i have little time at home.. so i tend to jump right in and i'm suffering now coz of it)


I Hope some fitness guy out there can guide me and tell me how i'm doing ?
Or if i should change my workout schedule?

Too extreme or too slack? loL

I'm like 1.7m in height
and like well 80+kg?

So.. Is it possible?

Oh and for those weight exercises at home i do it wif dumbbells

Doing Squats, Back Training(The one u use a bench and just lift the dumbbell off the floor)
The back of my arm section (Place weight behind my back and lift up and down)

Den thr's the one whr I life the dumbbell up and down wif my arms horizontal to my body
(I think tat one works the body too)

So i'm keeping it to a body workout rather than focusing
But i wanna loose tat belly badly..

Any idea how?
Coz i dun know any workout tat focus on the belly alone
I went to tat fitness webby tat shows exercies but can't find one for the belly loL
(SOrry but i'm seriously blur sometimes?)

So other than running and situps i can't think of another way to loose all tat fat! >_<

Someone HELPPPPPPPPP

oh and thanks =p

My BMI is 23.

Keep it simple. When you have a schedule that runs a whole page, perhaps you're a super-disciplined person, or you'll just break each one of them.

Eat your breakfast.
Eat your lunch. Avoid extra fatty food, e.g. skins.
Dinner should only be fruits.
No supper.
Take your vitamins to avoid being sick, which is detrimental to your ultimate goal.

Workout every day, the heaviest you can. I'm not familiar with cardio, only free weights.

Hi,

You didn't describe the intensity of your training or your age so it's very difficult to give any specific instructions. For me it seems that you are training quite a lot. If you train that much you also need to eat a lot more than before. Otherwise your body doesn't recover, this results that you can't train as hard as before and finally you see a drastic downward trend in all your results.

Of course you have to eat quality foods.

My dear friend, first tip is be aware that BMI (body mass index) is not relevant of a good health, or a so called "healthy weight". It doesnt take in consideration, genetics, water weight, fat, muscles or bone structure! So don worry about this number. I have read that you should keep it simple. Very good tip, however I'll be more constructive than that, if you allow me.As an expert I believe you shouldnt try to lose more than 2 pounds per week. Losing more than that, usually means that you are losing water weight and breaking down muscle mass instead of losing fat. If you do this, you will have less energy, and you will surely gain the weight back. A good way is by eating fewer calories. Do you see a nutritionist? It is complementary of physical training. We provide a free nutrition analysis, helping you with your eating plan, without any obligations! If you are curious about it here is our www.lenobleonline.com
Good luck.

i'm doing well, i think. got compliments from ex Mr. Selangor.

Denying the urge to confirm to the traditional dinner is key, imho.

Hi RiRi,
I admire your determination in reaching your goals :) Last year I engaged a personal trainer to help me with my exercise plans and I must say that it helped cos I learnt more about why I'm doing the exercises and what muscles I should be feeling when working out. Also got the results that I wanted. I'm willing to recommend my trainer if you want.

I would be very interested in the details of your personal trainer. I already have a few contact numbers but would rather go by recommendation.

Thanks

Hello Bumble Bee and tinkiewinkie, he charges between $60-$80/session, which usually runs for about 1.5 to 2 hours or even more, depending on what you're training that session (and your stamina). Being freelance he has quite a lot of freedom to plan your exercises but the good thing is that he'll always demo first and explain the principles and the risks of the exercise. He'll also vary your routine once your body gets used to it, which is good so u won't get bored or start hating a certain exercise.

I think he's good cos he actually knows what exercises suit me most, which muscles are stronger so must work the opposing muscle harder etc. He tells me why he's doing that workout. He'll also workout together so I know how the exercise is really done, I don't feel so being 'watched', I get my rest betw sets .... he's become more of a workout buddy! He also encourages stretching (to improve flexibility) and core stability exercises (which apart from improving stability and better exercise technique) also work very much on the abs. Oh he also watches my diet. I guess importantly, I understand why I'm doing that exercise, how to do it properly and what not to do. Really helps when he actually knows what he's talking about (and does it together).
