Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (except bananas). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water.
Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today.
Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. No Baked Potato.
Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.
Beef And Tomatoes: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days (but not both).
Beef and Vegetables: Eat to your heart’s content of beef and vegetables this day. You can even have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. No Baked Potato. Eat your soup at least once.
Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.
I've been doing well for myself. I've kept my post-Coachella weight in check and that's usually when I start to fall off the wagon. Been sitting on my ass less at night and working out in the morning.
must be from stupidity trolling allover
You're right. That looks healthy AND smart.
EAT AS MUCH BEEF AS YOU CAN, Y'ALL
I just finished my 11 rep, Cycle 2, light day (9th week) of the program and I'm feeling pretty good. I'll start my test day on Sunday and if I pass I'll be increasing my wieght on some lifts by 30lbs from where I began. That's 30lbs gains in 2.5 months.Quote:
A Simple beginner's Routine
You will do 3 work outs per week on non consecutive day. The first work out is your heavy work out. The second work out is your medium work out, use 10% less weight for your work sets. The final work out for the week is your lite work out, use 20% less weight.
Do a lite warm up with 1/4 of your work sets weight. Do a medium warm up with 1/2 of your work sets weight. Do 2 work sets with the same weight. Choose a starting weight and start light.
These are the seven exercises you will be starting with.
Overhead Barbell Presses
You will be running this program on a five week cycle as follows:
The first week do all 4 sets for 8 reps.
The second week do all 4 sets for 9 reps.
The third week do all 4 sets for 10 reps.
The fourth week do all 4 sets for 11 reps.
The fifth week do all 4 sets for 12 reps.
If you got all of the required reps on the fifth week then increase the weight by 10% and
repeat the cycle. If you didn't get all of the reps on the fifth week then repeat the cycle with the same weight. You shouldn't need more than one minute rest between the warm up sets and you shouldn't need more than one minute thirty seconds between the work sets.
Do some cardio and abs work on non weight training days.
Sun - Lift (Heavy)
Mon - Cycle class
Tues - Lift (Med.)
Wed - Run + Abs
Thurs - Lift (Light)
Fri - Run + Abs
Sat - Rest or Ride or Run = )
Went to a tribe anniversary about 9-10 weeks ago and haven't had a cigarette since, doing way more hikes and have better lung capacity than a 20 year old. Starting to do a meditation/yoga/dance "temple" and holy shit did my abs get worked from the first session. Gorgeous ladies in the class being stable at jaw dropping positions is also great motivation to stick with this plan.
I ran 2 miles in just under 17 mins and did 2 sets of sit ups this am. Tomorrow I'm going for a 30 mile ride outside. I'm gearing up for a Hercules and Love Affair make up date at Coachella 2013. You know, so I can boogie down in the Sahara with my shirt off.
I just bought a jump rope. it's either going to help me with cardio or I'm going to kill myself in a bizarre accident because of my two left feet.
I've never done any boxing or sparring but one of my girlfriends regularly jumps rope as part of her workout and she suggested it to me. She also said it helps to tone your legs and butt, so I figured it was worth a try. I'm currently only doing cardio workouts while I establish a routine, but eventually I'll add a bit of strength training and work on my core.
can anybody give me some suggestions on how to i guess take care of your back before a weekend festival? i have scoliosis in two places and the only thing running through my mind before a wicked festy weekend is my back and how much its going to affect me...which sucks cuz all i wanna think about is the actual show and who im going to see! anybody else have this problem or have any suggestions on some stretching techniques before concerts/festivals?
believe it or not, hamstring stretches do wonders for sore backs even if it's something like scoliosis.
I'm starting to wonder if being thin was just a phase and that I'll always be fat. I hate having tits.
nice sepa....fucking idiot
I have been going to 6am bootcamp classes at the park next to my house for a couple weeks now. They are kicking my ass. But it's good for me. And I like that they are first thing in the morning because then I don't have any excuse to skip.
How are you all doing with your fitchella plans?
I'm also 5 lbs up the 30 lbs I lost 1.5 years ago. I'm determined to lose it again before the new year.
