    I got smoked by a car while crossing the street in mid-May, and I injured my knee so I've been unable to do leg-related workouts for the last 6 weeks.

    But my bench press is at 275 lbs now, which is nice.
    Gonna go for 285 next week.

    Nice Jake ! I started out with the bar (weighs 45lbs) and now I am at 160. I started deadlifts last week ., Those are cool. I have been with a personal trainer for 3 months and plan to train with him for a year.

    I am down another 5 lbs now. 222 lbs and on the cruise I was 252 lbs.

    Image

    Anything can be achieved once you put your mind to it. This is life-long and not a fad. I hit the gym 4 or 5 times per week. My trainer goes 7 days per week, he is 23 and looks like Stallone in Rocky IV (Body wise)

    Sorry to hear that. I cracked a rib 2 weeks ago doing 1 leg , leg presses. had like 300 lbs on the fucker. I am almost better. But I can still do squats, lunges and step -ups and leg extensions and hamstring curls and the calve machine.

    If you fuck your knee up it sucks. I love leg day. I am usually sore the next day and the day after !

    i have also been doing 25 to 30 miles per week of cardio. Usually 5 miles everyday. And I drink over a gallon (usually gallon and a half) of water everyday

    Pre workout- Muscle Pharm- "Assault" fruit punch flavor
    Post workout- Muscle Pharm- Protien Shake cookies and cream flavor

    And a multi-vitamin. :)

    I have likewise been working on health stuff.

    I can't claim any desire to be "fit", as I'm lazy and I just don't want to work that hard. But my doc said I need to drop 50 pounds or die, so I've been working on that. 2 months and 20 pounds are down so far, and I do feel a lot better than I have before.

    I did two 4-mile runs yesterday and Monday. It seems to be replacing taewkando as my preferred way of getting exercise, since I don't have to worry about leaving work early enough to get there on time. Yesterday, I was running to the songs "Heathen Arise" and "Frail Titan" (Thanks Viathyn!"). I may have eaten away all of that progress today though, thanks to a trip I took to Five Guys.

    Good luck to everyone. Once you realize "This is a lifestyle" and not "I need to drop" thing then you will succeed greatly.

    I am strength training 4 days per week (2 with a personal trainer) Before the workout, I take 1 heaping spoonful of Muscle Pharm "Assault" (fruit punch). Post workout I take 3 heaping spoons of Muscle Pharm Protein powder (cookies and cream)

    Then I do cardio (4 to 5 miles) 6 days per week.

    My broken rib is STILL healing after 5 weeks since injury. Sam Peters said it took 4 months for his 2 broken ribs to heal after he broke them during "Pull the Plug" by DTA in the Chorus Line on the last cruise.

    Broken ribs are fucking terrible, massive hindrance on everything you try to do.

    I fully agree on the "this is a lifestyle" comment. As an example for myself, just doing a full on change in diet at home has allowed me to drop 25 pounds over the last year (and I'm generally considered a "smaller" person).

    Things are getting better for me! Did my first leg workout last week since the accident and will be doing another one today :)

    I'm very happy that you're working so hard and seeing the results you wanted, Scott. Keep it up, man! How's your rib feeling now?

    Hahaha nice, man! There's a bunch of fast ones on the new one too, so hopefully you'll have a couple additions to your running soundtrack.

    Thanks Jake, its actually much better and tomorrow is leg day and I think I will try leg presses (with both legs at once as opposed to one leg ones that broke my rib)

    Long time no see for me and this thread as I fell WAY off the fitness/nutrition wagon for some time there as a result of injuries and falling back into old habits.

    Scott... Holy Crap!! You look GREAT in that outdoor pic and the details you've posted of your weekly routine are intense! Good for you man! I know how hard you've worked at various times trying to find your groove and get a system in place that would work for you long term. So happy to see/read that you found it. You must feel totally awesome!

    As for me, the ankle I sprained a couple years back was flaring up and responding to various workout/run attempts with lots of aches and pains that were quite discouraging. After a few failed attempts to push past the pain and then a car accident that had me hobbling around for a few months with neck and back pain, I was pretty discouraged. Having gone from 235 to almost 175 a few years back, I got pretty depressed when I shot back up past the 200 mark but still didn't know what to do about it or feel motivated. When the scale finally nudged it's way up to 215, I really got pissed off and decided I had to do SOMETHING.

    That was 10 weeks ago and I've been swimming 2 or 3 times/week ever since. Took another 5 or 6 of those weeks to start eating better and add the 100 pushups system into things. Then, just a couple weeks ago, started getting on the treadmill and into the weight room on my non-swim days. I now run 3 days and swim 3 days/week and rest on Sundays. Wasn't sure how the ankle would respond to the treadmill but it seems that swimming has provided the ideal physio as it's stronger and more pain-free than it's been in years. Even ran a couple miles outdoors yesterday with my daughter and have no complaints today. Scale was at 200.8 this morning so there's progress in that category but even more important than that is that I'm back to enjoying fitness activities, loving how I feel and look for the most part and am just super grateful for my overall health today. No more injuries allowed!!!
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Just got back from 2 hours of chest today. Congrats to the people who are changing for the better. I too am excited about the gains. I didn't like my appearance during the first cruise and shortly after that decided to join a gym. Its been almost 2.5 years of 5 days/week for me now and I feel great and make better nutrition choices. I stopped asking people at work if/when they were going and just got in there on my own. Now I know many more enthusiasts that I ask for tips and spots and its easy to be motivated. Its now a lifestyle that I wish I started when I was in high school and its something I look forward to week in week out.

    Cheers

    I've got a degree in Exercise Science. I'll have my gym bag with me.

    I'll definitely be in the gym while on the cruise.

    More than happy to share a workout and answer questions.

    I was out of the gym for 6 years due to an accident and healing complications and I just started making my comeback.

    I'm not impressive anymore but I'll get back there. I should be back to "normal" for the 2016 cruise.

    Just look for the guy with long red hair, a red beard, red earphones, and a huge red scar down his left forearm. That's me. lol.

    I'm really inconsistent with exercise, because I don't prioritize it over my hobbies enough.

    I meant to get back down to my comfortable weight long before the cruise, but it looks like that isn't happening. However, this year I've been building muscle for the first time ever, so weight isn't really the problem.

    These last two weeks, I'm taking the final plunge, and doing an ab and thigh challenge, with some cardio. I figure if I can't get size 4 thin again, I can at least tone up. I'm not overweight by any means (maybe even slightly below average for my height), but I've been more comfortable before.

    Here's the plan if anyone wants to join me:

    Abs:
    14 Day Ripped Abs Challenge
    Day 1: 20 second plank/10 v-ups/15 sit-ups
    Day 2: 25 second plank/15 v-ups/20 sit-ups
    Day 3: 30 second plank/20 v-ups/25 sit-ups
    Day 4: REST DAY
    Day 5: 35 second plank/25 v-ups/30 sit-ups
    Day 6: 40 second plank/30 v-ups/35 sit-ups
    Day 7: 45 second plank/35 v-ups/40 sit-ups
    Day 8: REST DAY
    Day 9: 50 second plank/40 v-ups/45 sit-ups
    Day 10: 55 second plank/45 v-ups/50 sit-ups
    Day 11: 60 second plank/50 v-ups/55 sit-ups
    Day 12: REST DAY
    Day 13: 65 second plank/55 v-ups/60 sit-ups
    Day 14: 70 second plank/60 v-ups/65 sit-ups


    Legs:
    14 Day Lean Legs Challenge
    Day 1: 10 High Knees/15 Calf Raises/20 Plie Squats
    Day 2: 15 High Knees/20 Calf Raises/25 Plie Squats
    Day 3: 20 High Knees/25 Calf Raises/30 Plie Squats
    Day 4: REST DAY
    Day 5: 25 High Knees/30 Calf Raises/35 Plie Squats
    Day 6: 30 High Knees/35 Calf Raises/40 Plie Squats
    Day 7: 35 High Knees/40 Calf Raises/45 Plie Squats
    Day 8: REST DAY
    Day 9: 40 High Knees/45 Calf Raises/50 Plie Squats
    Day 10: 45 High Knees/50 Calf Raises/55 Plie Squats
    Day 11: 50 High Knees/55 Calf Raises/60 Plie Squats
    Day 12: REST DAY
    Day 13: 55 High Knees/60 Calf Raises/65 Plie Squats
    Day 14: 60 High Knees/65 Calf Raises/70 Plie Squats

    ive seen things very close to this last year I did one ab workout which was a 30 day challenge which for all purposes is just an extension of what you are doing. kinda worked, I think the insane amount of calorie depravation helped even more so though haha good luck....... :chug:

    Yes. This year I plan on one day of cruise doing an upper body train and then leg day on another day. Love squats and lunges with dumbells or bars with weights. Will be bringing my protein powder for post shake and hitting the spa sauna, steam room, and whirlpool. At the Marriott in Hollywood beach for two days before cruise. I plan to check their gym out too.


    Cheers !

    Anyone ever have or know anyone who's had Meralgia Paresthetica? My doc is out of town til Monday so I'm not sure this is what's been ailing me but am fairly sure and it's painful and annoying as a motherfuck. I'm being a stubborn bastard and pushing through it but it's getting worse fast and I'm not sure which exercises might be exacerbating it and which not so in a bit of a fitness conundrum atm. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
