Did you exercise today?

Talk about anything here. Post lifespan is 1 year.

Nothiing wrong with that. Doing anything is better then nothing. Best of luck!


Thanks, both the wife and I am in some desperate need of exercise, now we really don't have an excuse. LOL


Short term goals. Don't push yourself too hard too fast. Anything is better then nothing! You got this.

Waiver for what?

Also, for diet. Not sure if anyone else does this but I've been doing intermittent fasting for about 5 months now and I feel like my body is burning more of the food I eat at a faster pace. There was an initial weight loss period and now I seem to be maintaining.
I don't eat anything after 7:30 at night or before 8:30 in the morning.

Could use some pointers

Gonna start going to the gym soon with a colleague, never really worked out but I developed a thyroid condition. Which has been

Gaining weight= Even easier, losing= really difficult.

Any starting exercises to get into a good rhythm I should focus on, my intention is to lose a decent amount of weight and tone up as well.

Thanks.

Well, the Boston Marathon was fun. Finished it though, with only a mild amount of hypothermia.

Without knowing your physical condition and gym/exercise experience IMO check with your gym for a session with a personal trainer. Doing so could prevent injury or you trying something that could demotivate you. Good luck, stay with it.

If you haven't every really worked out before and are just starting out with the intention of losing weight and toning, I would recommend high-intensity interval training with body weight movements

I would recommend a Tabata type workout that looks like this (just an example)

4 rounds of 40 seconds work, 20 seconds of rest of:
1) Max effort air squats
2) Max effort pushups
3) Max effort body weight lunges
4) Max effort situps

Today marks my 8th consecutive month of going to the gym 5x or 6x per week.
Haven’t felt this strong since my early twenties.

This.

Also with diet. As I mentioned earlier above, I do not eat anything after 730pm. Sure if we have a dinner occasion out and about I let it slide but that's few and far between. In the morning then I don't eat until 830am, usually later too. It has been working very well for me, but everyone is different with diet AND exercise. Just mess with some things and see what works best for you. We also on top of everything we do make it a habit now for 20 min post dinner walks. Every little bit counts. Best of luck!

For diet, calc your macros using IIFYM calculator. Track in caloric intake with a macro app.

For routine, find a good PPL program that emphasizes low weight/high rep and proper form just so you can get used to the movements.
