I've recently discovered 'the plank' and it's brilliant.
Post your post-summer hints and tips here.
to be the best method.
An example of one of those exercises is: Sprinting to the bus stop before a bus leaves and then not catching the bus anyway
really motivates you to run away very fast so you don't get a wollop
For the lols
and then have a sensible dinner
as well as all food cupboards and mirrors. It'll help to remind yourself what you don't want to be.
And she'll be all like "eyw, no way" and the football team will laugh at you, giving you the motivation you need to get in shape for the big prom and show her what a huge mistake she's made
Just do an exercise montage
join the DIS strava club
those apps that someone recommended that count your squats, press-ups /sit ups work in a levelling up kind of way.
its self control though.. without being obsessive about it.
free exercise and the veneration of the nightshift posters will boost your self esteem
Great workout, meet loads of nice people, and super fun
looks great. i want a strong back
and not telling people what the plank is. What a rotter.
like where you hold the press-up position until your core muscles explodes?
this isn't some exclusive LME thing is it, really?
just been watching his Mr Motivator VHS
I just play football once a week. If there's a cool new thing to be doing, I might be interested, though. If it's holding the press-up position, that sounds pretty shite. Not interested. Thanks for explaining though.
its not shite pal.
none of this soft-lad nonsense
Might 'work', but it's probably boring and painful. Verdict: not worth it. Fuck off.
it was fab.
pin it in your glutes weekly
Only since August 5th. I've never noticed anything have such a dramatic effect on my body fat. I've become visually leaner in that time, whilst sticking to pretty much the same exercise and diet regime.
N.B. I've also been avoiding caffeine, but never really had that much to begin with. Maybe one cup of coffee and one cup of tea or diet coke a day. Pretty much just been drinking still and sparkling water.
But more specifically I did it by skipping the pointless foods out - chocolate, crisps etc. Also I used to have loads for breakfast like a big bowl of sugary muesli, I substituted that for a banana and coffee. Fruit for snacks, then a healthy lunch. I went from having a couple of sandwiches to having one with lean meat and salad and a cup a soup. If you go from a McDonalds every day to a small quinoa salad, it isn't going to happen. Just make simple changes. Then in the evening I pretty much kept it as it was, just always went for the healthy option if there was one when going out, or having less or a healthy version of whatever I normally eat. Again, cut out the snacks. Drink lots of tea.
As for exercise, I have never done any running and never stuck with a gym. So I just walked everywhere. Inspired partly by Stephen Fry, he said he would walk miles and listen to audio books. That could work for you, I decided to walk home each day and have a long walk at lunchtime while listening to music. On the weekends I would go for 3 hour walks to interesting places, explored every inch of the city by the end of a summer.
So in the end I dropped nearly 3 stone doing that. The only tough thing really was cutting out a filling breakfast, but after a few mornings of feeling starving, I didn't miss it at all. I think your stomach shrinks a bit too so after a few days, you don't want a massive meal.
