My Fitness life after Heart Surgery. by The 1st Fuzzy - Sun, 02 Apr 2017 18:15:00 EST ID:TsW1Ty5D No.94033 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

First lets be clear here, I am high as I am writing this but what I say is the truth.

3 Years ago I had my major Heart Surgery that kinda saved my life and gave me a 2nd chance for life, but not without its challenges into having that good life 2nd chance.

Halfway during Recovery from the Surgery my back gave out and I lost all the muscle strength in my back. It kinda hurt like when I was trying to walk because it felt like a steel bar was on my back. And after 6 (can't spell) Chiropractors (all good, auto correct!) I started physical therapy.

They tested my will and my strength and pushed it to its limit and maybe even past that. After 3 times a week for 6 months I had finally graduated my physical therapy, I just wish my grandmother could of been here because she passed December of last year. But Shes watching over me now and I promised her to forgive the people that have hurt me in my life and to always make sure I am trying to better myself.

So even before she passed I started my own little workout to only last one hour for each day. I started with lifting a water jug over my head from my waist with my arms all the way down to my legs 25 times at times then over time I am now to 200 times. But the water jug broke and now I am using my chair stool that has a nice padded side to it so if I get too out of it I can rest it on my chest that has my heart surgery scar on it for a bit then carry on. Anyways I lay on the floor and lift that up about 30 times now. After that I do bridging that is like a crab walk but with no walk and just moving your hips up with your legs. I do those 100 times each with holding for 5 seconds each time I go up.

Doctors say my spinal disk is being slowly fused with my hip bone.

Anyways what do you think?

200 is too many reps maybe. Im still studying to be a personal trainer, but you want to build muscle without wearing out anything too much. I personally like more weight in reps of 15-20 only 1-2 sets.

anything above 15 is cardio.

you are using oxidative phosphorlation energy systems, which is basically fat for energy....which is cardio

if you want to build muscle...
>you must increase volume
>people who increase strength increase volume better than those who dont
>people who train for strength have genetic markers that indicate higher rates of hypertrophy
>people who train for strength have higher rates of myoprotein synthesis
>people who train for strength have more markers indicating more muscle damage
>people who train for strength have more testosterone, igf-1, GH, and lower cortisol than those who train high reps

you are basically telling this person to do cardio with weights.

Hi. 5'10 135lbs. I want to bulk up and get jacked son. I currently have two 35lb dumbells but thats it. I don't care for gyms because I can't stand being around people. What can I buy to get j4cked at home? The most cost effective route is...kettlebells? Thanks

Spend all your money on food. Seriously eat like 4000 calories on your lifting days (3 days rest between) then cut on your ab and cardio day (4 days in between)
Sleep well, learn more kinds of pushups. Always do 15 reps of better, never do sets of 3. Try to be creative

Get adjustable dumbells with a couple of plates. The variety in resistance will literally give you dozens of workouts to do.

What plan (shake or no) is good is entirely goal dependent. Unless you're bulking up and want protein powder shakes I don't know if any shakes are actually worth it for "meal replacement" though.

I struggle with depression and PTSD. Working out helps me feel way better. The problem is actually getting off the couch and doing it. I usually just lay around before and after work scrolling my phone. The only thing that helps me get my ass up sometimes is putting on work out music, or reading this board or different /fit sites. I know if I could just start a schedule every day I would be feeling better in general and better about my body, but I just can't fuckin do it. Right now I'm just doing a few sets of core / cardio stuff like twice a week.

Do you have a gym membership? Go right after youre off and don't go home first to even be tempted to not do anything. If you don't have a membership, maybe go to a park right after work or asap so you can make sure you do it. Also getting a workout buddy helps a lot so you can be motivated and it will be harder to bail

I have 2 questions about working out.

  1. What would be the best formal for reps and sets in the gym? Currently lets takes hammer curls as an example. I would like like 3 sets of 10 reps and then up the weight and do 3 more sets. I have heard of people doing same weight sets but with reps of like 12, 10, 10, 8, 6 or I have seen people do a set with all of the same reps but the weight starts off a little lighter, then goes up with each set and then back down to the starting weight over 6-8 sets. I know it may be different for each exercise, but what do you do?

The other question is not technical. I used to workout at home solely until I found aa gym in my area (moved to a developing nation back in 2010 lol) and prior to going to the gym my gains were slow as hell. Now I have been going for only 4 weeks, my body has changed already in a big way, it's crazy. At home I found it hard to workout for more then 30-40 minutes but at the gym it gets around to 1 hour and I wanna do more, but stop myself as at my level it probably will be counter productive. So why is it so much easier to push yourself at the gym, and have you found this yourself?

See the thing is I looked through many split routines and I found 1 that works for me, however there are 2 days close together where one day it is chest, triceps and shoulders, then the next it is biceps and back. I was thinking if I should swap the back and biceps with abs and legs? Pic related, week 2, today in fact I did biceps and back.

your chest and back recover at a faster rate of 1x-2x/week.

splits and loading your body full of volume 1-2x a week is just inferior and retarded.

So, around 14 years ago i dislocated my knee the first time playing hacky sack.
in 2014 I dislocated it again when i got caught between a couch and table.
2015 I got in a car wreck and dislocated the same knee again.

With enough exercise and conditioning will I ever be able to ride a skateboard again? It was my pushing leg and I haven't skated since 2001 after the first dislocation. I just want to be able to ride around.

I scooted around a few minutes ago and my knee started acting weird just from a couple pushes. This sucks. I've only got to climb one mountain. Never been water skiiing. I suck on a bike. I'm going to end up like that guy from Blade.

Best advice I can give is to maybe cut all impact related exercise and switch to something that doesn't put strain on your body in the same way like swimming.

I've got a repetitive stress injury in my first MTP joint (see picture) from smacking my foot on the ground with all the force I can muster when I ride, since I like to really haul ass. It's still not 100%, but having stayed off it has helped me tremendously.

Consider physical therapy if you are serious about getting on a board again, but I can tell you that multiple dislocations can cause some trouble.

Knees just steadily get worse until you die, however as someone else mentioned if you strengthen the muscles around the knee you will prolong them.

I've had one knee surgery and I still run and stuff, but I have to be careful. But no I can't fucking skateboard anymore really. I do mess around still on a skateboard but not seriously.

There is so much to say. I do parkour and my knees are sometimes my worst enemies. I have a bad one yeah; my landing/step out leg. Plus everything else that has hit and pierced that thing. First of all I would say to always have hope. Your positivity is in fact one of your best friends when healing. Its true. Depression hinders your cells. Nutrition: healthy oils, antioxidants, and general health. I've been suggested collagen. Habits: You start with the everyday habits. Are you walking uneven? Stand up straight, force your knee into place, stretch your back. Move. The knees can heal but they need to be active and warmed up to gather nutrients. The knee is a hard place to transport nutrients it seems. Exercise: Slow and steady. Look up videos on physical therapy and pick up some techniques that work for you. Work out your bad knee more than your good knee to bring them to an even point. working out is going to hurt at first. A little pain can go away. A lot of pain can do damage. The pain will go away if you persist. STRETCH! You can never stretch enough. Again don't push yourself. learn to properly open up your muscles. Learn to move the waste out of your muscles and joints. Massage yourself. Lacrosse balls rolling under your legs can help with that.

Honestly I stopped skating because it was fucking up my foot. If you love it though you should try your best at it. There are other sources of fun and love though.

Hear is a Athlete that I admire. He has knees of iron.

Doctor Ronda Patrick has some good advice on health and she sometimes talks about joint health.

One more thing. Every day you must tend to your injuries, It is what makes a warrior. Make that bad knee into your strong knee. Dedication and patience my friend.

Hey /ana/ (when did it change from /fit/?) anywho, I'm starting this year on the right foot. I'm not drinking for a month, I've started doing yoga every day, and I'm trying to eat better and keep my finances in check.

I'm a full-time line cook, about 5'11" and probably 130-150 lbs, and i've never really worked out besides walking every where, or riding my bike. The yoga has been great, I'm on day 4 of a 30 day yoga challenge and I certainly plan on continuing my practice after the 30 days.

I come to you today as a total newbie to the workout life. I just looked around on the internet for a beginner bodyweight program that i can do at home until I can get enough money together for a weight set. Here's the routine:

Three Circuits of:
>20 squats
>10 push-ups
>20 lunges
>10 dumbbell rows (using a jug filled with sand or something)
>15 second plank
>30 jumping jacks

I think that's a pretty good start for me, not knowing much about working out. So I guess my questions are this:

Not OP but I have a pretty decent home gym set up. I recently went to check out a gym in my area, it's been a while since I've gone to one since I have almost everything I need already and my god I like working out at home sooooo much more.

there's never anybody occupying a machine or using equipment that you have to wait for, I can play whatever music I want, I don't have to worry about my shit getting stolen from a locker (I have serious trust issues when it comes to this) and I live decently far from any gym in my area so the combined drive time and the time it takes to get changed and put shit in a locker altogether adds an hour to an hour and a half.

shit will eventually pay for itself too, I get most of my equipment second hand and anything that can be built I build (access to welder and workshop with every tool you could need to build shit). the way i see it a gym membership plus gas to drive to the gym is easily 350+ a year, but i've barely put 1300 into my setup and have almost everything I need. In 4 years my home gym pays for itself

Started the PHUL programme as of today (Upper/Lower Strength/Hypertrophy alternating days, 4x a week) and half an hour of relatively lax cardio (bike), and on days in which I'm not weight training, doing that little extra cardio. I'm wanting to get from 160lbs right down to around 130, realistically if I were to keep this up, how long should it take to achieve that?

Assuming you're a man you're *probably* going to lose weight on that diet. But how much for sure is impossible to tell without your TDEE. You should calculate your TDEE (just google to find an online calculator), subtract your caloric intake from it, and that's your calorie deficit. But of course that's the theory and in practice metabolism is complex and ever-changing. Follow your plan for a week, see how much you're losing, and adjust your diet/exercise accordingly. E.g. if you're not losing fast enough, drop a couple hundred more calories from your diet and/or up your exercise.

Good luck! 130 seems pretty damn low though, so make sure you're not morphing into a skeleton or something.

Forgot to add that the typical rate is ~3500 calorie deficit for ~1 lb of fat loss. So if you're at a 500 calorie deficit per day, you should lose about 1 lb a week. I don't know if that's actually true, but it's a baseline at which to start.

Sorry if this one gets posted a lot I couldnt find anything on it..

Looking to start my first dbol only cycle (25mg daily) i've been told I should half these and do one part in the morning and the second at night.. is this correct?

I have enough supply to last me 30 days then ill be taking nolvadex and clomid as part of my PCT for about 4 weeks (as well as fish oil capsules throughout both cycles)

question is, what does of both nolva and clomid should I be looking at to get my body back to normal? i've had a look around and cant get a straight response on this one..

thanks!
