    :lol:, it depends how much you yourself are willing and determined.

    You can join the one I go to, its actually worth more than what they actually charge you for a month, fair amount of equipment, clean environment. Pakistani chicks in gym well the less I say the better.

    Well when I started the thread that my fitness machines will be used to hang clothes however with careful planning I have managed to keep my focus for almost 30 days

    One day I came and my mother had hanged some clothes over the machine to dry so I told my mother to please use the dryer , took care of that from happening again

    My routine does not have Running

    Only 3 exercises done immediately after other
    • Rowing 1500 Meters
    • Walking 1 Km
    • Bicycle 4.5 Km
    Modest numbers

    Avoiding running as it is damaging on knees may introduce it in program after certain goals are met end of August

    Aiming to have destroyed 10,000-15,000 Calories by August 14th or August 30 Target




    The intensity I think is no where military grade as folks do 5km -15km hikes or crazy Run targets

    For muscle building , I found generally people are advising to lift few repetition with heavy weights
    I don't have the heavy dumb bells

    At some point will introduce weight training into Mix


    At home I only have 35 pound dumb bells but seems people say you have to go heavier
    I think presently at my current strength I might have have chance for injury if I went too heavy quickly

    Rowing is the Superb Work Out it works out almost your whole body

    Good old Bike ride also helps burns some stomach excess

    After 30 days, I can physically see some difference in body shape tremendous difference in mood and energy level

    My routine lasts

    • 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes

    I see soldiers running around with Military boots , that is quite difficult and dangerous for groin injuries so respect to folks who go thru those drills they are quite challenging

    However my goal is to raise my levels slowly

    Next Mile Stone is 10,000 Calories destroyed by August 14 or August 30

    Horse sh*t. Though lifting heavy should be part of weight lifting regime, but not daily. To achieve well defined aesthetic look ......... lift moderate weights with max rep and sets. e.g. 10 sets x 15 reps with little rest in between. Lifting crazy heavy is only for pro builders who use steroids and those are temporary gains ... and may result in injuries down the road .... check Ronnie Coleman for example.

    OK. I have also recently started exercising after 8-9 years of inactivity.

    My weight during that period increased from 82 to 99 KG (Height 5'11").

    I used to be play basketball in my college/uni days. Also played squash for a year or so (one of the best exercise for cardio).

    I became inactive due to long hours in the office.

    This resulted in weight gain and some other problems related to back, neck, knees e.t.c

    I have currently started exercising. It has been two weeks now using calisthenics. Have installed a makeshift pull up bar for now. It is supporting my weight.

    My current weight has gone down to 96 KG.

    Does anyone know if the iron gym type pull up bars damage the door or not. I don't want to drill holes in the wall for a pull up bar (rented home).

    Will buy some cheap weights later on too.

    Looking to reduce my weight to 82 KG in 12-15 months.

    In my experience, free weights will do you more justice then these machines. When you use free weights you have alot kire flexibility and burn/gain more. These machines are only static moments.

    It's something hard to explain but the feeling of Cardio ... and blood flow puts you you great post workout feeling after workout, the light feeling and "CLARITY" in mind is a feeling which can only be experienced if you do a good cardio session.

    I extremely enjoy that feeling post work out which I get from Cardio and Clean Fresh water bottle which is not super cold

    I seem to have found a new hobby which is rowing , and row while watching videos of Olympic rowers and try to imitate their intensity

    However I do wish to go shopping for some heavier weights over 35 Pounds to help build bigger bulk

    Well that is why maintaining digital log is important it helps you maintain your day to day , week to week performance

    Similar to 50 over's cricket run rate you can chart your calorie burned per day for 50 days

    After you start recording your daily workout , you feel bad when you don't log anything

    10? I am more of a 9 person with 3 sets per game

    Machines are better as they help you target the muscles unlike free weights where you may wobble if you lift something really heavy :-//

    Nah bro, I speak from experience and I also took classes with a qualified trainer. You need to work more then just one muscle, which helps improve you overall. Think of it like working only your arms and not your legs.

    All fancy equipment, exercises and hipster head bands are pointless if your diet is rubbish. If you seriously want to improve your fitness/health for ever then change your diet and stick to it or else you're wasting your money and time.
