Scorz' 2010



  • The end of 2009 put an end to proper workouts for me - moving from AKL meant I had no weight lifting equipment for 6 weeks (finding a place) and resorted to "rulks" (that's a cross between a run and walk, people - as opposed to "wans", which is walk and run... keep up!). Which I dislike immensely.

    So starting the Monday (11/01) I have been hurling myself back into it... Alternating two weights programs and then into 40mins of cardio on the bike. Also being more Fascist about calorie and carb intake again of course.

    This thread is just to keep me from slacking off because the last one was good for motivation.

    Kicked off on Monday 11/01 with a lightish full body weights effort, 30 mins on the bike.
    Tuesday did the weights and then mowed the lawn which took about 2 hours and poked me.
    Wednesday did a heavily bench press and quad orientated weights session and then 40mins on the bike.

    Any weight/fitness goals in particular Scorz ?

    Aw and I farkin hate rulking and waning as well.



  • Goals? To be ready for a big snowboarding season mostly, so lots of bum and thighs and calves and guts exercises to get into. By-product of which will be losing the excess girth!



  • do you have a hill at your house? do hill repeats for an hour, followed by weights. For example, yesterday I did 70 minutes of hill repeats (20 reps, each one fast up, jog down, no break), followed by 5 minutes continual benchpress (stopping when tired, restarting asap), and 5 minutes of pullups mixed with knee lifts.

    For your snowboarding, mix in some agility jumping

Also I do weights then cardio, as per the idea that weights = building muscle so better to use the available energy for that, then cardio to deplete calories/burn fat.

    I do have some good steps that will come in handy for some plyometric (sp?) stuff closer to the season!



  • so how goes it...?

    Or is it still 'run fatboy run'...



  • Still keeping on keeping on Bartman, have been strictly low-carb lo-cal for about 2 weeks and the effects are not devastating but encouraging. Have been doing more cardio than weights.



  • protion size helps too Scorz!! But good lad, keep on!



  • Well duh Bartman...

    Living on all bran, and bloody chicken with salad, mushroom omelettes, and fruit. So much fruit...



  • fruit - I eat ZERO fruit. LOTS of sugars (carbs) in fruit. LOTS.

    Correction, I eat 1 banana a day in mid morning protein shake - and that ia a huge treat, normally zero fruit a day, too many cartbs!!



  • At least fruit has a bunch of fibre - I try to stay amongst the apples etc... I did have a chart with all the fruit carb numbers somewhere. Besides, better an apple or orange over a muesli bar or a bag of crisps eh!



  • Carrots and Peppers are good though aye Bartman ? I often snack on these when at home, helps that there's no shapes ( yum yum I love shapes ) in the cupboard.



  • better neither perhaps Scorz!!

    carrots are pretty good I thinbk - although they did turn Mrs B orange - that old wives tale IS true!!

    Bart if I absolutely have to have a beer do you reckon the low carb Macs or Pure Blondes are better ( bearing in mind any beer has fuck all carbs in the first place )



  • having had maybe a dozen beers since last April, no bloody idea. And to be fair, I don't really miss them anymore!

    How sad is that.



  • Well back here away from the beer questions, the weight's gone down, the stamina and speed is increasing, and my protein shake should arrive Tuesday.



  • Picked up some new dumbells on the weekend, and some more useful - heavier in one unit - weight plates.

    Happiness = biceps are bigger

    Grumpiness = dodgy knee twisted today, going to try it out now.



  • Well, the Wounded Knee is a bit sore, but not as sore as my shoulders which probably got overdone yesterday due to the stupid knee. Bench press, seated tricep extensions, Military press, Upright row, Rear Delt rows with the new dumbells, rinse and repeat, followed by the usual ipod-Genius-mix-fuelled exer-cycle until my knee got too sore about 15mins in.

    Will see how it goes this time...



  • Been trucking along with this and lost a bit of weight so far. It really is far more effective to combine avoiding empty carbs, crack into protein shakes, doing weights and cardio in that order for me. Gotta have that "day off" though.

    Very noticeable how much longer and faster I can pedal on "upper-body" days and how fast I burn out on "Leg" days!
