Re: Muscles and too much cardio

I ride to work and there is no escaping it. I do about 13 kays each way most weekdays plus train weights Monday Wednesday and Friday and swim...

Re: Worried about school + gym

Geez, i wish i had this problem! Go to the uni gym for sure. Its free! You can break up the monotony of exercising at the same time each day, by doing different routines OR different intensities OR keeping consistent with your workouts and really trying to nail your diet. You'll see the results you ...

Muscles and too much cardio

People often say lifting weights and cardio dont mix too well, or that the cardio lessens the ability to 'grow' muscle. So what actually happens? If i went to the gym and did a full on weights session every three days, but did cardio every morning and afternoon 5 days a week, what happens to the mus...

Re: How Does This Look For a Three Day Routine?

ok guys, i have been swayed :) I went to see one of the trainers at the gym (i got two free sessions upon joining) and she told me that the routine i had was good, but i didn't need to split up the muscles at this point. So, she has written out a FB program that can be completed in around 40 minutes...

Re: How Does This Look For a Three Day Routine?

Thanks lp. Are you saying that compacting my routine to cover all muscles in the one day and do that three times a week is better?

I should probably mention at this point that i need to work out in my lunch break, which is an hour, so i have about 45 minutes of actual work out time.

Re: Is alcohol that bad?

Yeah good thread.

I thought a beer after a long day of working out wouldnt hurt a bit. I was very wrong.

Re: New to site, new to fitness!

Thanks Nokie!

Yeah i had a feeling the muesli bars weren't the best option. I'll try and replace them with something a little less sugary.

Is portion size a consideration with what im eating? When i see people posting what they are eating in a day, it seems much less than what i have?
