can't hurt to try it for a month. on my heavy set now i have way more control and better form, so i can see how it benefits

the first time i did a reverse pyramid set, i got that weird "haven't worked out in over a week" cold burn. never had that happen before

you know, when its a cold tight cramp that feels good? that's the kind of burn i got from reverse pyramid

make sure you do 2-3 warmup set or circuits before you try loading 90% of your max

my eventual goal is to just do one full body circuit on my machine with 20 reps 3 days a week. i only have 110 lbs on it, but that's a 55 lb pectoral fly, 55 lb curls, 110 lb pulldowns, rows, etc. if i can crank out a 20 rep circuit on those weights i'll be pretty well off overall in the endurance, strength, proportions and cut

after a couple of warmup circuits first

eventually it will just be a very heavy aerobic exercise

granted, i'm just starting out, so i will grow faster than someone that has been committed for awhile, so i'd say give it at least two weeks. but you should see results quickly.

Yeah, I can see how a good warm-up is key... Be easy to get hurt going heavy right of the bat.

Ok workout peeps...what are ya'll goals for 2013!!???

I have been gym slack for about 6 months now ..gained 5 lbs from that (and drinking a wee bit more wine during the warm summer months).... then I quit smoking with added on another 5 lbs...yay..get healthy...gain weight..FUG YOU CIGARETTES!! 10 lbs isn't excusable..totally unacceptable seeing as I've worked SO hard to get rid of the extra 50 that was there prior....So I ended up joining Planet Fitness..it's 5 minutes from my house..$10 a month..no excuse NOT to go and workout when it's cold and/or rainy. Got up at 5 this morning and went to workout for the first time BEFORE work in quite a long time. Didn't realize how much I actually enjoy working out at that time vs. after work at 5:30

So besides losing that 10 lbs....I want to...

Finish the 5k I'm running in March in under 29 minutes...
Run a 10k

Be better about eating healthier..for the most part I'm pretty good..but then you get on a roll...and it's, "ok..fine I'll eat those 5 chicken wings because I worked out today"


This year I plan on dropping down to 8 % body fat, run a 10k in 40 minutes, and pack on more muscle after summer is over.

A few things I'm doing this year.
Totally NO fast food at all.
Gym 2 x a week and dvd's at home 3.
As much as I loathe it I'm going to run at least once a week. Up it from there as time goes on.
Rotate between soccer, basketball and either riding a bike or rock climbing or paddle board each wkd to keep from getting bored and meeting new people.

Trying to keep my goals simple and fun.

Good luck all

Find fitness activities you enjoy, otherwise you will be less likely to stick with it.

what about combining positive and negative pyramids in the same workout?

I normally do 7 sets of each weight type exercise

I got a heart rate monitor for Christmas. I've wanted one for a long time. It's awesome, highly recommend.

I have one..but for some reason I've never fuged with it...I does beep at me and I can hear it in the kitchen...maybe it's telling me to put it on..hmmmm...

on another note...the next person I see not wiping down equipment after your nasty sweaty ass has used it...is getting a kick to the crotch...ok, not really ..but I'm going to glare really hard at you!!!

I wipe down my stuff before and after b/c there are so many nasty people out there....also, please stop wearing perfume, ladies..if you stink, take a fuging shower

Happy Monday errbody! I was up and at 'em at 5:00 this morning!!

In general, the majority of most gym users gym etiquette is non-existent.

yup first one. Have run some 10ks but never thought I'd be able to do this and to be honest I have all the speed of a household appliance but I can run slow for a few hours. Marathon will be on the grounds of Biltmore estate so it ought to be a blast. Going to run it with one of my daughters who lives near Asheville. Not bad for a 56 year old former fat guy who still smokes about a 1/2 pack a day
