STAY/GET BACK IN SHAPE VOL 3.0 -- A New Niketalk = A New Thread

post #1 of 40622
Thread Starter 
With the thread that exists here, it's severely outdated, it's time for a new thread. Here's the old one: http://niketalk.com/t/213108/stay-get-back-in-shape-vol-2-0/20070

Intro to supplements:

Fitclick.com : Calorie tracker / weight loss advice site
http://www.fitclick.com/

Interested in fasting?
I recommend you begin here, and read all of the links. It'll take some time, but so will making progress. Make the time.

Looking for some fun and healthy recipes? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What are macros / macronutrients?
Read the first few posts to get an understanding of what they are, why you need them, and how many you need of each on a daily basis
http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981&page=1

I'm too lazy, and I suck at math, isn't there an easier way?
OF COURSE THERE IS!
http://www.physiquefx.com/bmr-calculators/
I use the excel sheet available for download , and plug in my numbers. It's worked for me.

How do I keep track of my daily intake?
There's quite a few apps out there. I'm on the Android platform phone wise, and lately i've been using MyFitnessPal to track my intake and workouts. I recommend it, MUCH better than NOOM which I was previously using.

cinco.. loading and updating your first post with common Q and A would be awesome... and links to places like fitclick that show you each individual exercise etc, and maybe even a link that shows/explains different supplements?

I dunno, just an idea...

Hit they gym last night after about a week layoff. Been doing starting strength for a few months now with a couple friends. Considering purchasing a belt when the poundage starts to get heavy. Anyone have any experience using them or recommendations on some brands?

Gotta get back to making some gainz now
post #16 of 40622

Trying to get down to 190, so far only lost 7lbs since the summer started since I was busy with school (done now).

 

Consistency is key, I keep telling myself that. I lost a pound since last Friday, but I feel I can do better. I had a cheat day yesterday, which wasnt that bad, just an extra plate of rotisserie chicken and rice, but I need to stop those. Im cutting rice completely out of my diet til I reach my goal. I just hope I dont gain it all back once I get down to 190.

 

On another note...damn shoulder pull. I havent done shoulders/chest in almost 2 weeks because I messed up my front shoulder. Feels batman.

you aren't kidding about consistency. I lost about 25lbs from January to March by keeping to a strict low carb diet. Felt like crap at first, but after like 3 weeks it was ok. You think of trying Keto?

Whats up NT... Im finally off my training and now I have a set schedule. Working 12 hours but going to start my day at the gym.

Now the real question is the diet. I haven't been good during my training phase of work, but now that I am off training no excuses time to diet right. Anyone have good recipes ?

This. Consistency is definitely the ingredient to any kind of progress.

Feels good to be back. I was on crutches for a while and when I went back to the gym, I lost all my strength and confidence. But after going consistently, I've been making great progress and it feels awesome. Been going 4 days a week, but added Wednesday and made it solely for abs and some cardio. Been going strong for a few weeks now. I hope to see some drastic changes by the end of 12 weeks.

Anyway, how do y'all prepare your lunches? This is my problem since I don't have a lot of time to prepare. Been getting pre-made sliced chicken in Walmart which is 2 for $5, 8oz each, with white rice and veggies but I need some new stuff. Care to share how y'all handle your food? I need to eat plenty, especially lunch cuz it's my after-gym meal.

LeanBodyLifestyle got plenty of good, easy, and cheap recipes but I use his recipes mostly for dinner.

A question for you guys.

Does taking protein (bars/shakes) actually make difference in terms of building muscle? I wanna get more cut rather than looking more bulky. How do you get more cut instead of adding on more muscle? Thanks.

Cardio, preferably, high intensity interval training or HIIT. And of course, proper diet.

I assume you want to get rid of the excess fat. In order to do this, you must burn more than what you consume.

HIIT or any interval training works because it keeps burning calories even when you're done with your workout and well-throughout the day. The difference is, compared to long endurance exercises like marathon running which can break down muscle as well, HIIT takes short intervals of high intensity exercise to target mostly your body fat.

Anyway, I'm no expert. This is just basic stuff I know from it. Here are a couple articles if you're interested:
