6' (just under) 170lbs
33 years old (on Tuesday)
Getting back into weight training after ~6mos off. Looking to build a bit of muscle while trimming the holiday fat.

Current regimen is 4-day rotation of:
-traps and legs and abs
-chest and tris and abs
-back and biceps
-abs

I workout from home, mostly with just a bench, dumbbells, and a pullup bar. Oh, for abs I use Wii Fit Plus.

I'll also start back up on the bicycle once it gets a bit warmer down here in Houston. I usually ride for speed for 30-45 min, but I need to up my distances as I'm doing the MS150 in April (first time).

Eta: no supplements

Doesn't help to post my routine, I do a P90X'ish workout w/free weights and a pull-up bar. 4 days/week.

I run 2 miles 1/week.

5'8 170 lbs

Right now, my workout routines are limited compared to what I used to do because of work, but usually I pick something out of crossfit football or sealfit when I do get a shot about 4-5 days a week.

Goals are simply to maintain what I have done strength wise.

Supplements: Optimum Protein powder, vitamins, fish oil, flax oil, etc.

Do ladies have to post our stats? It's not you guys I'm worried about, it's the rest of the a-holes that can read this board.

Anyway, I'm 35 and I've done 2 rounds of Insanity, and I'd like to lose about 10-15 more pounds. First workout today in about 3 weeks, and it was brutal.

Don't really take any supplements, but I do add some protein powder to my smoothies. Got one of these bad boys for Christmas, and it's AWESOME!

2 rounds of Insanity




I did P90X and lasted maybe 3 weeks.


I do not have a REAL work out routine but I work from home, so I usually get up out of my chair and do burpees or something else multiple times during the day to get my heart rate going. I also do sit ups, lunges, pussy push ups...

I don't want to lose weight.... just stay somewhat in shape.


ETA: I don't diet but heard this is pretty cool...

MyFitnessPal

Online/phone app to keep track of calories, work outs, etc.

6'2"
258 lbs(pure sex appeal ladies)

Monday-Wed-Fri
15 min elliptical
Bench- 5x5 w/heavy weight
Curls-3x15 w/ medium weight
Flies-3x20 w/medium resistance(machine)
Military press- 3x10 w/55lb dumbells
Pulls- 3x15 w/ high resistance(machine you sit on and pull)
Bench Burn out- as many sets as u can with as many reps as you can. I start at 250 and work my way down to just the 45 lb bar. It's funny to watch as I barely get the bar up at the end.

I don't work my legs other than elliptical. I have enough issues finding jeans my legs will fit in as it is.

Ah, was on my phone and didn't even click on the link!

I use MFP on and off. Usually when I start cheating a bit and need to get back on track. Like right after the holidays...

re: Arkansas health and fitness thread


I'm not putting my stats on here b/c it feels too much like a dating auction? whatever that is.

I work out with a trainer 3 days a week. We do high intensity training focusing on my mid section, ass, and calves. I have had an elbow injury for 3 months and haven't been able to lift, but see a specialist today in fact. On the weekends I ride my Trek hybrid anywhere from 6-15ish miles. fricking hate running and only do as much as my trainer makes me.

Diet...I'm kind of hard core. I'm one of those annoying asses. Tofu, chicken (from an organic local farm) and salmon on occasion are the staples . I prepare almost all of my food and rarely eat out (only when I travel) b/c I avoid HFCS, casein, nitrates, nitrites, msg, (so nothing that says "natural flavorings lol. but this one is hard), obviously nothing processed or in a box, nothing bleached, and I could go on... lol. Breakfast is usually a bowl of steel cut oats with wheat germ followed with an almond milk, spinach, mixed berry, whey protein smoothie. I allow myself almonds and similar to snack on during the day.

I bet you guys think I'm a TON of fun, huh?

As for me, I'm 6'0" 155 lbs, 27 years old. I want to gain weight. I was even thinner in high school, but worked up to 180 lbs while in college. I continued to work out for about a year after I graduated, but when I went back to get my degree in physics, I got out of my routine and turned into Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.

Now I'm finally out of school, working full-time with a regular schedule, and can get back into a routine. Unfortunately, I now live in NYC and all the gyms around me are really shitty, and I have limited space in my apartment.

I just got an adjustable bench and some adjustable dumbbells (5 to 45 lbs in 5 lbs increments). I also have one of those iron gym pull-up bars that goes into a doorframe. That's about the best I can do with the space I have. Fortunately, because I'm so weak right now, the dumbbells should last me for at least six months before I need more weight.

I plan on doing a really basic three-day split, probably doing back/biceps one day, chest/triceps another day, and legs/shoulders the third day. I walk about two miles a day so I'm not too worried about cardio, but I will probably start running and/or biking when the weather gets warmer.

I would like to get to a lean 170 lbs by the middle of June. That's about 3 lbs/month which ma be a little optimistic, but I'm hoping for muscle memory to help me out. If I'm a lean 175 lbs by this time next year, I'll be really happy.

My primary motivation is that I'm going bald and I would like to avoid looking like someone who's gone through a couple rounds of chemo.

Actually that's how I was back when I was most successful with my weight/strength gain several years ago. I lived on my own and it was easy to stick with a good diet.

I've lived with my girlfriend-now-fiancee for three years now and it's much harder to stick with that kind of diet. I still eat healthily--fortunately she is a great cook and likes to eat well, too, but it's a little different. It's a lot harder to keep count of calories and she's the kind of magical cook that can grab random items off the shelves at the grocery store and create something really incredible. It's awesome, but it makes keeping track of things virtually impossible.

This was a long way to say that I don't judge you
