Re: Fitness page


I've been trying to eat more meals a day... Smaller meals that is. That would help get my body working properly again. Usually I have the average "rush and go", daily food plan. Coffee in the morning, skip lunch and pound dinner at around 6:00 to 7:00 at night. That's probably one of the main reasons my metabolism isn't what it used to be either. That, combined with my 36 years. :lol

Re: Fitness page


Here's the lowdown...

There will not be a separate section for fitness info on the BOTB. If you want to talk about your fitness programs, diets, whatever else goes along with it, the topics will be handled in the "Off Topic" area. I moderate that section, and will even go as far as to stick them at the top for everyone to see. But, for now, no section for Fitness.

Thanks,

Re: Fitness page


Hey Echo,

I hear that eating 5 meals a day is the best way to speed things up, I believe it is called "Grazing"...ya like a cow lol. When I use to train for competition and get my athletes into their categories we worked on a simple system. Your body has three burning systems, energy (in forms of various sugars), fat (the stuff we all love) and protein. The first 30 min of your workout your body uses the energy it gets from sugars, then it moves to the [sign in to see URL] you get to protien, you gone too far (dont think you are in danger of that). So if you like to run, for example, anything after 30 min, on average, means you are burning fat. I dropped 30lbs in 3 months doing just that when I was 28. Another thing to keep in mind is that 1 lb is 3,500 [sign in to see URL] is only about 500 calories less, per day, you need to take in per week to lose a 1 lb of fat.

Cheers,

Okay before I ask this I need to preface it with the [sign in to see URL]'m NOT actually as crazy as this sounds.

How far do you guys want to take this?

What I mean is this, I happen to own a fitness company, and I ALSO happen to own a Reality Based Personal Protection Company.

On the one hand I teach aerobics, on the other I teach terroroism survival technques.

The reason I mention this is beacuase of the difference in fitness and the how your goals will dictate your training program.

So I can suggest the following options...

1) Train for cosmetic purposes e.g look good naked and in spandex

2) Train for functional fitness and health e.g. be able to catch the bus, play a good game of football with the kids and carry around the tv when needed with ease.

3) Train to be Batman, e.g. The strength to press and pull over 900lbs. Running in full gear for 40 km and then fight 5 rounds of full contact sparring each lasting no more than 3 minutes. Be able to move bodyweight in any plane and master gymnastics movements such as the one handed handstand and planche, both free standing. Full flexibility including the spilts. etc etc

Each of these goals if fully achieveable but requires different training methodologies and different mindsets.

My clients are mostly NO.2 - I train a select group of two people at lvl 3 (and yeah, they're nicknames are Nightwing nad Robin)

If you post your goals I'd be happy to write some general guides on how to achieve them. I'm also quailified in Sports Nutrition should you have any dietitary questions and am a qualified TCM practioneer should you have any injuries or medical concerns.

I guess I do.

Is an early morning workout (before leaving for work) a better time to work the muscles or is it better in the evening? I've always done it right after getting up, but it's tough to get back into the old habit.

Also, snacking throughout the day, does this help boost the metabolism? As I stated before, I really only eat at dinner time, which is bad. If I make sure to eat throughout the day, that should force my body to build up the amount of energy needed to burn extra fat that my body is used to storing.

Cool, a few easy ones to start off....

Reagarding workout timing...

Physiologically, assuming you work the normal hours of life, the body is most prepared to workout at around midday, 12 o clock. That said it's inconvenient for everyone except personal trainers and fitness instructors.

Personally this is what I advise to my clients at all levels. Make your health a priority - it can literally add years to your life.

Workout first thing in the morning. It wakes you up and revs the metabolism for maximum fat burning effect for the rest of the day. If you really want to burn calories and get rid of the bat belly do all your cardio (no more than 45 - 60 mins) before breakfast.

A typical day for me starts at 6 am regardless of what workout I'm doing.

I find that clients who lack motivation often find early morning training better. Simply becasue you do it first thing its done and doesn't intefere with your life. Do it in the evening, you will be tired and less than enthused, besides there's dinner, the kids, nightly patrol.... emoticon

Reagrding snacking..

This is usually great advice, but it helps to understand why, so here is the answer...

It's all about Protein. Protein is a key factor in maintaing and developing a lean muscular crime fighting physique. Its also the most satiating food we can ingest. This means if you have equal amounts protein, carbs and fat the protein keeps you fuller for longer - hence protein based diets help you cut calories, you feel full quicker hence less food.

Anyway, Protein breaskdown after 2.5 - 3 hours. If you don't have protein in your system the body gets it from your muscles. It breaks em down and uses them for food.

Eating every [sign in to see URL] hours in smaller controlled meals each containing protein keeps your metabolism high (it takes a lot to digest protein) hence you burn more calories, but also keeps your muscles in tip top condition.

It doesn't always have to be a full meal either - an apple and peanut butter, or some nuts is fine.

For maximum fat burn, cut carbs back by [sign in to see URL] each night. And remember to get you food in as quickly as possible after your morning workout. If you sleep for eight hours thats at least 8 hours you body has been without protien.

The real secret to long term weight loss is muscle. You put on an extra 5lbs of lean muscle tissue, you'll burn off 20-25 lbs of fat off annually doing nothing - great when your researching criminal profiles on the bat computer.

Re: Fitness page: Stuck Please Read If Interested


Isshogai,

Your advice on the board has been very helpful so far. Thanks for all your contributions.

Of the training methodologies you listed, I'm striving for #3. I know it sounds unusual but I really do want to condition my body in the way of the big bad bat as best I can.

I'm 21 years old, 5'11" and about 135lbs.

I have about 10 years or so training in Shotokhan Karate, but I recently switched to the school of the Bujinkan to get a less rigid and more fluid training that will improve my endurance, flexibility, and stealth.

I am beginning to get into weight training, but I know next to nothing about lifting weights, physical training / fitness etc.

I am also cooking for myself for the first time, now that I am away from the temptation of junk foods at home.

Any tips or pointers that you may have to help get me started on a daily training schedule and diet would be greatly appreciated.
