    Default So what did you do today for a workout? (continuous thread)

    well I noticed quite a few onrpgins are beginning to become more and more active. So I decided to make a thread where you can post what you did that day for a work out. I know some of us are at a higher activity level than others so please try to be nice and respectful, this work both way folks take advice with a grain of salt please.

    My goals:
    Old weight: 256lbs (8 month ago)
    current weight 220lbs, very active (workout 5 days a week and hike on weekends)
    Goal: 190lbs

    While I am dropping weight slowly it is mostly because I am actually doing it right and I won't have to worry about gaining back 50% or more of what I lost because it was all water weight from a poor dieting pyramid scheme.

    I'll start with a little catching up to do.

    Monday: 1 hours 2 mins on tread mill walking 3.5 mph at a 7.5 incline
    Tuesday: cardio = same as monday, 3 sets of 40 push ups (not sure why I went with 40..just seemed like an okay numbe that day ), 3 sets of weighted sit ups (25lb), 3 sets of 30 lb hammer curls, 3 sets of tricep extensions
    Wednesday: 1 hours bike ride around neighbor hood (equals 8.5 miles with plenty of big hills), and a brief 35 min tread mill session at 3.5 mph at 7.5 incline.

    I have been on a real cardio heavy workout routine lately mostly because it was a challenge from my bro. He runs marathons and said If I could beat or match his time for this upcomming august 5 mile a thon he would buy the drinks that night..and I was all like challenge accepted, it probably won't happen any ways big guys like me are kinda screwed when it comes to marathons, but we will see maybe I'll show up that little skinny punk.

    So what did you do today for a workout?

    p.s I also don't due much weight lifting because as for now I am moving people furniture for a living (until some much anticipated paper work finishes up), and well yeah lets just say I have a new found hatred for people with solid oak china cabinets who live on the third floor..

    Picked up my fork.
    Consumed food.
    Put down my fork.

    This was a big milestone for me today, I'm quite proud of the progress I'm making and I think I'm ready for a larger fork tomorrow.

    I rode my bike to work, which I would have done anyway. It took me a little less than an hour, but that was because I was really pushing myself. The last part is a massive hill.

    also I'm training for a marathon when I have spare time. Maybe not as much as I'd like, but work really sucks the energy out of me. it sucks.

    I'll post my next time on here. :] probably on Friday.

    and before anyone mentions, being underweight is no easier than being overweight. Fat people always try to give me that sht.
    damn 110..... whats your height?


    anyways I actually just finished a shoulder workout and also did cardio and abs since my gyms open 24/7 and didn't have the chance to go earlier

    My family has had a long history of High Blood Pressure, and I had problems with hypertension as a kid. I don't really have a choice, it's either exercise with some friends for free, or spend a ton of money a month on blood pressure medicine. I still use my old high school football workouts as a 3-4 time a week regiment.
