Thread: Your Workout Routine?

  1. #1

    Your Workout Routine?

    I have been hitting up a gym quiet regularly for past 2 - 3 years

    I have tried many workout routines and nothing has given me results I wanted.

    Until, I stumbled upon full body workout with compound exercises.

    Best results I have achieved is when I implemented full body compound exercises. It changed everything.

    Results were visible with in a month.

    My workouts are anywhere b/w 45mins - hr + 10-15 mins HIIT cardio.

    Tell me about your workout routines, I would love to hear from other members.

    Four way split twice weekly.

    Legs AM, Back and biceps PM, next day Shoulders and upper back AM, Chest and triceps PM.
    Stretch and core after each session.
    Moderate weights and high volume, I am old and have a lot of injuries from MMA.
    No cardio but careful keto diet. Easier to not get fat in the first place than work it off.
    Plan workouts you can actually do, consistency is more important than a one-off 300+ bench.

    I bought a working ranch.....
    After a few years I can out lift most 20 year olds in a hayloft, I can swing an axe without stopping for about an hour, 195 pounds with a shoulders and chest that fit extra large, with a 32 inch waist.
    I got in shape, and made a living at the same time.

    Personally I do full body circuit training, about 5-6 times/week depending on my energy levels/soreness. (usually minimal to zero soreness, luckily) They're about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. No cardio on my end. I start with my bigger muscle groups (quads, chest, back/shoulders) and work my way into the smaller ones. Not as many compound exercises as I'd like in hindsight, and about the last half of my work out is targeted exercises. High reps, mid-ish end on weights. Some exercises I'll go til failure; depending on what's left to do.

    I agree with westwoody in terms of consistency being super important; and one's diet just as important.

    I feel you, sybian. Finding clothes that fit has become difficult; especially shirts. In my case I'd need medium shirts to fit my chest/shoulders, but then they never fit my waist.

    ^ Brains are the thinking man's muscles. Good to see someone using their head.

    Don't compare yourself to others, do what is best for you.
    I am in my sixties and still learning, never think you know it all.
    The best thing I ever did was get real coaching from someone with a degree in Kinesiology. It has made a world of difference.

    I am hardly the cattle-country Adonis that is Sybian, but my fitness philosophy is about the same. My workout routine consists of life. There's always plenty of physical stuff that needs doing and/or is fun to do, when you live on the edge of the rainforest, and have buildings and properties to keep up. Workouts just for the sake of workouts really bore me.

    Preworkout before workout @ 450am. Post workout protein powder+supps
    Coffee, black, lots, omlette with sausage or bacon in it.
    Lunchtime big chicken caesar salad, homemade dressing. Occasionally make chicken salad sandwiches with my own homemade whole wheat bread.
    Dinner, meat of some sort, lots of greens. No late night snacks or eating after dinner. 
    Meal prep is your friend, do it on Sunday for the work week.
    Sunday is steak or burger BBQ day.
    Try tracking your macros for a few weeks to see exactly what you are taking in.

    I am not going to go into medical advice, but get a DEXA scan, looks are deceiving! People can be thin but fat, or huge but all muscle.

    Stretch in the shower. Poor man's yoga at thai massage place every 2 weeks.

    Breakfast- Coffee, and donuts from Tims

    Lunch - Subway - Foot long, usually a chicken sandwich.

    Supper- Tims chilli, and grilled cheese sandwich and a donut for desert.

    Ok that's what I want to eat... mosting salads and lower carb food and veggies and protein.

    Weights 2 to 4 times a week.


    Drink lots of water and Tea....

    A Cardio program of circuit training consisting of body movements - considering push-up, jumping jacks, situps, crunches, skipping, burpees, leg lifts (horizontal from ground), running on spot (knees up), might include some ball exercises.

    Also hot yoga considering- improves flexibility and you sweat like a pig.

    surest sign you are gaining is that you are sweating...

    I like SUBWAY, but urrrgghhh its not healthy as they advertise. Have once a month and thats about it.

    I am trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet. Greens, greens, & more greens....

    Also, I have recently started incorporating kettlebell into my workouts, never done before & boy O boy, does that it work or does it work????

    I always heard & saw trainers talked about it, not until few weeks ago I have started using it.

    I can clearly see why they swear by it.

    Any one else into Kettlebell

    Get up around 9 and start the day with a cigar.
    Skip breakfast but have a couple of Spanish coffee's then off to work.
    Grab a danish at the local bakery.
    Sit on my ass all morning. Move as little as possible.
    Go for lunch @ 2 pm. Often a business affair, so start with a couple of double martini's some pasta with a rich creamy sauce and bread with butter and lots of it, accompanied by a glass or 2 of red wine.
    Work til 7 while consuming lots of coffee with heavy cream and 4 sugars along with a couple of mid afternoon chocolate bars.
    Later on a couple of Scotch's (neat) then a big fatty piece of prime rib, potatoes, no veggies' (yech!), yorkshire pudding and lots of gravy. A few glasses of red wine.
    Then some kind of cake or torte for dessert with rich dairy ice cream piled on top.
    A glass of cognac and a nice Cuban cigar to finish it off.
    Do some work for a couple of hours.
    Watch some TV while enjoying a few beers, some chocolates and potato chips and dip.
    Then to be usually around 2 am.
    As for cardio nothing gets the heart racing while doing deals where you can lose $2 Million in 10 seconds.

    Cheers

    Why did this thread go from workout routine to snack food?
