Line to be honest I prefer doing military press but its a movement that seems to aggravate my injury in the left bi but it aint half bad coz I'm feelin the anterior delts the next day! thanks man, it means a lot
fallen cheers mate, its hard to describe, i can feel this one tendon running down both my tris which gets sore if i squeeze on it or do a contraction. hopefullly it'l be right come tomorrow for bench
tweak hehe, always good to have your encouraging words mayne, i'm sorry i let you down with the cardio
Glex hehe i think you're right on that one, i've been too carb depleted to even update my own log!
here's yesterday's cardio session
Treadmill: low-high intensity for 35mins (430 calories)
Elliptical Trainer: medium intensity for 45 mins (510 calories)
Cycle: low-medium intensity for 15 mins (70 calories)
Time: 95 mins
Total Calories: 1010
Weight: 80.7kg (181.5lbs)
Result: shredding that fat babyyy
thanks FF, tweak that's a lotta calories in a short amount of time . I really don't want to increase the intensity to more than 140bpm other than when I'm running where at times I'll get to around 170bpm. I do enough cardio throughout the week and I'm not sure that so much high intensity cardio will do my muscles any favour...any thoughts?

I have absolutely no scientific basis for what I'm about to say, so somebody should either back me up here or shoot me down, lolOriginally Posted by MaKaVeLi
I think doing high-intensity on the elliptical is probably easier on your muscles than running at high-intensity, so you might be ok to do Tweak's 500 cals in a half hour, lol. I say this 'cause my legs decreased in size far more than my upper body when I ran, partly because the muscles in my legs were adapting to running rather than lifting (or sitting around playing computer games), and (this is the completely unfounded part) I think the shock of running wears on your muscle as well. I especially noticed it in my calves, and since I did a lot of hill running this summer I thought there might be some kind of connection. Elliptical trainers are for all intents and purposes impactless, so you won't have that stress.
Just a thought. Nice workout, by the by; looks like you wore that chest out!
500 calories is easy as pie in 30 minutes though
STEP IT UP ANYWAY! DO ITTT!!!
Bench press is looking good, great job hitting those pullups as well, you definetely destroyed that back of yours.
as for cardio you gotta increase the intensity dude come on lol. Ever tried HIIT? High Intensity Interval Training, goes something like this.
Sprint for 60 seconds
Jog for 60 Seconds
Sprint for 60 Seconds
Jog for 60 Seconds
give it a try
You can also do it by distance (called Fhaertlik, I think...kind of like repeats for the trackies out there), or both. You can also do increasing intervals, like:Originally Posted by Tweak
jog 60 sec
sprint 20 sec
jog 60 sec
sprint 40 sec
...etc up to like 1:20 or 1:40 and come back down. Pretty much you can just make something up, too... if you think it's going to suck, it's probably good for you! Lol
Where the hell are the updates???
