There’s a fundamental rule in “fast weight loss”:http://www.fastweightloss.com/ that you have to burn more calories than you take in. Some diets make this easy by focusing on protein-rich foods (which fill you up faster and take more calories for your body to digest) or foods that give you energy (so you burn more calories sitting around). Best of all, though, is a little daily exercise.

Fitness Questions

Hey there. I have an elliptical machine at home, made by Life Fitness. I have a knee injury that I am recovering from, so this is the only way that I feel that I can get in a good cardio workout at home without overworking my knee joints. I’m a 5’ 7", female. I weigh 242. I’m 43 years old. I’ve been spinning my wheels with uncertainty for years because I keep reading different tips. I’m hoping to hear back from just the certified trainers on here, I could use a consensus of professionals’ advice.

Following a visit with my doctor and numerous tests, I discovered that I have a couple of food allergies, primarily to gluten and dairy. I’m working on getting on a low-glycemic, casein (dairy) free, gluten-free diet because of these allergies. I had my blood sugar tested and discovered that I have a tendency towards having higher blood glucose levels that return to nomal levels slower than the average person’s (I’m not a diabetic, but my mom is, she has diabetes type II). Finding cookbooks that encompass this diet (with nutritional info.) is nearly impossible. The Paleo diet doesn’t look too appetizing to me. I like veggies, but I’m not a big meat eater. I’m not a fan of soy. I mainly eat chicken and fish when I do eat it. I try more and more to just go vegetarian, but I’m not sure if that would go over my dietician-recommended “no more than 25 grams of carbs per meal.” I was also told to keep my fruits limited to two servings a day (because of my higher blood sugar levels). I hope this is all correct.

I’m fine with tracking exercise, but I don’t want to deal with constantly tracking everything that I eat. I tend to get easily carried away with details and maintaining prescribed limits. I think that if I maintain a low-ish fat, low-carb diet that is still gluten and dairy-free, while managing to listen to my hunger levels – being mindful to eat low G.I. foods, to eat slowly, not to overeat, and eat smaller more frequent meals, I should be okay. Counting calories, carbs, etc. would put me into overdrive on the details, and I will probably end up giving up out of uncertainty and frustration. In other words, I need to simplify. I’m not sure what to do there.

I have an elliptical machine, a Maximus multi-station weights gym at home, and free weights, as well as one of those AbLounge machines.

I’m setting out to lose weight; about 60 or 70 pounds, or a weight that feels healthy. I don’t want to spin my wheels doing cardio again that won’t get me results. I’m looking to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week.

I’m confused from reading conflicting opinions over the years about doing cardio (to what intensity to work at, and whether to do this trend of HIIT cardio). I’m still unsure how to do it, vs. doing a steady 70% to 85% RPE (rate of perceived exertion). I must have read ten to fifteen books over the years, many saying different things about how to do cardio…. I’m very confused as to how to go about doing cardio effectively.

In the past, whenever I get started on a cardio program, I’ve noticed that I have a lot of adaptability and endurance. After a few days, I can handle the higher intensities with ease and my body is able to adapt very quickly.

With doing weights, I’ve read that weights are even more important than doing cardio, as far as weight loss and general health is concerned. I get the general concept of weights (i.e., maintaining good posture, breathing, proper rest periods between sets and workouts, slower movement on the return of the weight to starting position, and using a weight that makes the last two or three reps tough but do-able, etc.)….

…Doing effective cardio burning confuses me to no end. I calculated my resting heart rate over three mornings (69 beats per minute) and using the “220 minus your age” formula, I calculated that to be in “The Zone” (of 70 to 85% RPE), my target heart rate should be between 145 to 161. Is that correct? I’m uncertain whether to maintain that target heart rate throughout the entire cardio workout, or whether to do “HIIT” cardio, as seems to be the latest fad (I wish trainers/exercise physiologists could come to a final consensus on this).

So I’m confused about what to do…

- a steady cardio (within the 70% to 80% R.P.E. or less?) for 60 minutes

OR

HIIT” training (and how to do it)???

I need to be sure of what I’m doing, but never have.

I’m also looking for ONE source to get CORRECT information on exercise. Does it exist? Trainers must have some authorative resource from which to get this information, right? Help???

What’s happenin? I’m posting these questions to hopefully get some advice on if I’m doing everything right, and what I should Modify. This is a longer post, but I’m trying to get everything in here. Let me start off by saying I’ve worked out on and off throughout my life so far. Approaching 30 and am noticing myself getting weaker than when I was in high school and college. I’m a year round hockey player, golfer, have an office job, and have completed P90X, Insanity, T25, and Les Mills Combat. I’ve used schools gyms, had gym memberships, and used my own stuff with the BB programs. My equipment consists of an olympic smith machine with pullup bar, tons of weights, dumbbells both 1 piece and adjustable, straight bar, e-z curl bar, and a bench that can decline, incline multiple positions with a preacher pad on the end. I also have a bunch of resistance bands that I had when I didn’t own a house.

My goal is basically to maintain, maybe lean out a bit, and build some muscle. But I’m not looking to blow my muscles up like balloons and I’m not looking to add TONS of mass, but a little would be fine. Again, I play ice hockey once a week in the summers and 2-3 nights fall through spring. I work full time.

Here is the current workout plan I’m following based on my time limits, equipment I own, and what I’ve put together from a few different programs geared towards hockey players. Basically built it to maintain my current weight, yet gain a little mass and lean out at the same time. I drink a single scoop protein shake mixed with FF milk prior to workout and a recovery shake after workout. I’m 5’6, about 155 lb and my BF% has ranged from 12-18%. Typically I do 3 sets of 8 reps each, with the last set usually being strenuous but able to finish with good form. I’m in my third week with this program and have gradually been increasing weights each week. Sometimes I’ll switch a day around.

- Hockey once a week currently, typically Sunday or Monday night late. Going up to 3 nights after Thanksgiving(more on this later).

- Monday – 4:30AM – Chest/Bis
- Flat Dumbbell Flys
- Standing Barbell Curl
- Flat Barbell bench Press
- Standing Dumbbell Curl
- Dumbbell 15 deg incline bench press
- Preach curl
- Decline Bench Press
- Reverse Barbell Curl

- Tuesday – 4:30AM – Quads/Calvs
- Goblet Squat
- Dumbbell Lunges
- Front Barbell Squat
- Dumbbell Calf Raise Standing
- Barbell Squat
- Seated Barbell Calf Raise

- Wednesday – OFF

- Thursday – 4:30AM – Back/Tris
- Wide overhand pullups
- Dumbbell lying tri extension
- Reverse grip chin ups
- Dumbbell Tri Kickbacks
- One Arm dumbbell row
- Pronated Dumbbell tricep extension
- Bent over barbell Row

- Friday – 4:30AM – Shoulder/Hams
- Dumbbell Shrugs
- Front Dumbbell Raise
- Barbell Shrugs
- Reverse Flys
- Dumbbell seated shoulder press
- Sliff Legged barbell dead lift
- Side Lateral Raise
- Romanian dead lift

So Here’s the questions:

1) Does this plan look ok? Any suggestions based on the equipment I have? A different movement or anything I can add? I try to keep my workouts to an hour due to work, life, etc. Is the order of each movement ok or should I re-order something to help out performance?

2) What kinda ab workouts can I add? Should I do something 3x a week like P90X abs or Insanity abs, or is there something I can roll in with these workouts to use weights for abs and obliques, again, based on my equipment?

3) I plan on getting a spin bike and starting some HIIT once it’s here. Did hiit on spin bike when I had gym memberships and lost quite a bit. What days should I be doing HIIT along with this setup above? Do you think I can sub hockey for HIIT once 3x a week starts? Issue with using hockey as HIIT, is I’ll be skating Mon,Tue, Wed all in a row, then nothing until the following Sunday. Hockey games are usually at 10pm, then I’ll be lifting at 4:30am the next morning for 2 days in a row, off day Wednesday. Should HIIT be only 3 days or can I do it everyday, or every other after the 3 days of hockey in a row? Like Thur, Sat?

4) For any specific hockey players that ride a bike after games, how long do you ride for and what intensity?

5) Like I said above, I’ve done programs like P90X and insanity. Those programs always have a rest week every 5th week. Should I be doing something less every fifth week or just keep going?

Sorry this is so long, just trying to give everyone enough info to minimize questions. Thanks in advance for all the help!

If living in the real world and desire to stay the actual natural life, best and unique way is to develop body naturally by eating good nutritious food including, read meat, vegetables, milk, pulses, make natural body no doubt will take time but more effective as compared to the supplements, but supplements are also good idea as they help to develop the fitness in faster way after all we are in the advanced technology, even I had tried one supplement name *http://usplabsdirect.com/oxyelite-pro-super-the… as it has certain important feature like it makes muscle stronger, burn fat, though it has OTCN2 molecule makes it to provide high bioavailability as well as it is responsible for the differentiation and hypertrophy of fat-cells.

But making the natural body is good idea try them in prescribed amount instead of heavy amount after all what we eat during meal depends on how hungry our stomach is as taking extra food to stomach harm, so take the supplements in little amount to make the body faster.

Imagine if you were blind. Complete darkness. No color. If you were blind, ask yourself how badly you’d want to see. If pushing yourself to your limits could give you sight, would you do it? If there was a cure would you let anything stand in your way. Would you risk the haters and the critics to see again? Do you really want to succeed? Then Do whatever it takes to see. If not your just blind anyways.

To increase your stamina you need to get plenty of oxygen to all your muscles, as quickly and efficiently as possible. As iron helps transport oxygen into your blood stream, it is a very essential nutrient that you should include your daily diet.
