Thread: What exercise did you do today? Log your workouts, keep accountable

    What exercise did you do today? Log your workouts, keep accountable

    I joined a new gym near me a few days ago. It is a real man's man gym..(note *I am a female.* lol).
    It is an amazing gym with many weights and machines. Many athletes train there for body building and Ironman and such. I like weights.... a lot. The more muscle you have the more you burn calories even at rest.


    Today (Saturday) I did biceps (bicep curls, seated curl with straight bar), triceps (bench dips, tri pushdown on cable machine, overhead press), shoulders (military press, front and side raises) I also did 20 minutes on the stair climber.. this is a real workout by the way. I am getting back into after being away from the gym for three months. I have been biking outside a lot, but not been in the gym.


    This will tighten the buttocks and legs.

    By the way my goal is to workout four to five days a week for now.

    Good gym work.

    What's your height and many kilos are you?

    Thanks, I'd rather not say my weight, but I want to lose about 20 kilos, and I am 5 inches 4 feet. I've done it before, but have gained it back over the last 6 months or so. I'm back at it again! lol. My gym is making me a program to follow soon. I know my way around the weight room very well. It is just a matter of consistency for me both diet and workout.

    20kg is a massive amount of weight to lose.


    As in, absolutely massive.

    If 5'4 and hoping to lose 20 Kg, it would take a year of absolute misery, and then comes maintaining it.


    Probably better setting realistic benchmarks. Do it healthily and do it right. Set 3 months 5Kg first. Done through a calorie deficient healthy diet and manageable daily exercise. Not some fad diet.


    Good luck.

    ^It isn't that massive..lol. I carry my weight well as I've been told. lol.

    Anyway, it doesn't hinder me as in I still do whatever I want, still attractive enough to date guys, etc.. it is just that I know what it is ilke to be lighter and more fit and I want to get to that point again. I agree that take it in small chunks is the way to go, like mini goals (10 pound increments).

    Fok the gym. Athlean X is the way to go. Hit a point in the gym where nothing was happening. Started at just over 100kg, now 84, lean and toned within a year. 20-30 min workout Mon to Fri. Sat and Sun break. Cured my rotor cuff syndrome, back and knee pain. Back to full on tennis in between.

    You really should hook-up with that Pattaya Plies character here at TC. I am serious. You will reduce the amount of food intake (god awful: https://thailandchatter.com/showthre...ll=1#post88409 ) or youíll pass away. To survive his meals/time with it/him, just donít eat much: https://nutritiouslife.com/live-cons...-carcinogenic/ - https://www.thoughtco.com/backyard-b...health-1203996

    That's very good.

    You must eat a hell of a lot of food.


    If you want to lose 20 kg, you're gonna have to be massively calorie deficient.
