Huddle Workout Warriors

Was talking via PM to sagaciouspanther about stuff and we got to talking about working out. He said he may or may not need some motivation and I had been thinking about starting a new workout thread for those of you who do work out, or want to start working out...

I've been lifting off and on since 1996... I got back into it seriously in about 2006 and last year after my rehab from shoulder surgery got REAL serious about it.

So I wanted to start a thread where we could discuss it and get ideas.

I'm currently trying to cut some fat with my workouts/supplements. I'm walking 30 minutes in the morning and doing cardio/lifting in the evenings after work. I'm off of creatine monohydrate for now, and I'm taking GNC's Ripped Vitapak and Cellucor C4 pre-workout, along with protein supplements during the day and after my evening workout.

Two more weeks of that and I'm getting off the vitapak and back on some creatine, and I'll probably get some M5 pre-workout then. I've dropped from 6'0", 225 (which I had been at for some time) down to my current weight of 215 and haven't lost any muscle that I can tell. Strength seems to be about the same too...

I don't do a lot of running because it irritates my knees. Would love to, just can't do it.

What are you guys doing?

We just got a heavy bag/speed bag combo here at work. Great full body, strength and cardio workout at once. I drip with sweat and my shoulders and legs kill me after I am done. I do that three times a week and lift twice a week, and the next week I flip it.

Today I'm running 400m repeats during lunch.

Dude that's a quarter mile... how many repeats do you do???

I've very seriously considered enrolling in some MMA training or something, I know they do a lot of work like this^. Anybody got suggestions on that?

I don't take a class or anything ... I just bob and weave and beat the hell out of the bag with combo punches. I do it more as a stress reliever and picture the bag is my VP's ugly-ass face and throw jabs, crosses and hooks.

They had a heavy bag hanging in our gym for a while, but they took it out... I think some of the gym patrons got a little carried away with it... lol I never tried it.

I just try to do something active every day. Whether its the Y, mountain biking, wake boarding, etc. I don't track anything. I just make sure I am active for an hour a day. Its a lifestyle thing, not a workout routine. I can easily run a mile, bench press my weight, do pullups, everything a man should be able to do.

That's a good plan and something a lot of people don't do, they'd rather sit in front of the TV.

I personally have to make it more structured than that for me to be motivated to do it... otherwise other life stuff gets in the way.

Don't think I can run a mile with my knees but I'm in the shape to do it, and can do all the rest of that stuff with ease. I could probably bench 215 18-20 times if I just laid down and did it... never really tried to see how many pull ups I can do, but I've been doing 4 sets of pull downs, then 3 sets of 10 pullups after that... so... Just trying to get back into squats, kills my shoulders to hold the bar on, but I'm working on it.

Benefits of owning your own business.

I used to get up at 5:30 and ride my bike because there is zero time after work between the kids and dinner. Stuff doesn't calm down until 8:30-9 and by that time it's like fug it.

    • SMH. Guys weren’t ready to cover kicks since they hadn’t had to recently and we didn’t have enough OL to block for the FG so we pulled a DT onto the field to block? Elflein was 1 injury and that basically led to a blocked FG. SMH again. Working to fix mistakes? This seems like terrible preparation. How do you not have the one guy who comes in to block 1 OL injury and how do you not have your coverage team ready? A single OL injury shouldn't be a surprise and everyone knows Gonzalez = returns and honestly Gonzalez was hitting the end zone but Harris knew we sucked at coverage so he continued to catch the ball mid end zone and go because he knew he’d get 30.
    • Isn't it interesting how all the proud "realists" on the Huddle were very eager and confident in shouting their evaluations from the rooftops in thread after thread after thread in the offseason about how: we're still bottom-dwellers for at least another season any predictions about a top-10 defense is coming from delusional homers Darnold is one of the worst starting quarterbacks our o-line is worst in the league Shaq is an overpaid JAG Fields was the better pick over Horn etc. etc All of this before a single game was played by this team in its current state. Now after two games these are the same people saying across multiple threads "woah woah it's only been two games, way too early for any judgments".  Like come on you lil doomers, enjoy the excitement while it lasts...it's okay to entertain some positive discussion. Like yeah no sh#% it's too early to make any definitive conclusions about this team, but quit being boring as hell.  You can talk about what has surprised you so far.
