    30 minutes yoga focusing on lower back flexibility and core strengthening
    100 push ups
    20 pull ups

    pull ups kinda suck because I don’t have a door frame / high enough ceiling combo in the current apartment

    10 lbs down, eating at a 500 calorie deficit and working out. Bands at lunch, and HIIT and core at night.

    How much protein do I really need to make sure I won't inhibit muscle growth Inna deficit.

    Rule of thumb is your weight in pounds should be the grams of protein you eat for gainz

    Yeah forgot who it was that mentioned pooping more now that they’re exercising and that’s how it works. More calories burned equals more food needed. In your case since you’re going lean more ‘tein and fat, less simple carbs

    It’s been said but somewhere between 90%-110% of your body weight in grams of protein. The more drastic the deficit and the longer the cut you want to keep protein high. Only take calories away from fat and carbs as you progress through weight loss. Protein is more satiating, prevents muscles from catabolizing, and takes a good bit of calories to burn.

    Capstone 88 or any others: any thoughts on getting your protein in food vs. protein shakes?

    I eat like 90% vegetarian, and to supplement that I usually drink 100-125g in protein shakes per day -- just put the powder in after a meal, minimal water, and chug it. I know food is generally better, but is there a big difference?

    Without getting too into the weeds, the main thing to look for in protein consumption is a complete amino acid profile. Quality whey and casein protein shakes will give you that and theyre a great supplement for a vegan/vegetarian type lifestyles. Where you run into trouble in your protein intake is if you’re counting a lot of your daily protein with incomplete amino acid profiles. So don’t get a lot of your protein from non-protein sources like rice, oatmeal, etc.

    Also, for clarification sake, when we talk about close to 1g/lb of protein we’re talking about athletic performance, resistance training, muscle growth, etc. If someone isn’t into lifting/serious exercise and just wants to eat a balanced diet then their intake can be lower

    A few years back, after way too many years of living a sedentary lifestyle, a buddy of mine gave me the original P90 workout to try out. Those DVDs sat on my shelf for a solid year or more completely ignored. One night, after my wife went to bed and I had a belly full of wine I popped in a video and on the spot did the first workout. Not sure what prompted it then, but I finished the program. Went on to do P90X, P90X2, P90X3, Insanity and Asylum. Lost a solid 30 pounds of fat and looked trim.

    For the last year and a half, my trial schedule got so hectic that It became impossible to get a daily workout in. Started drinking too much and gained about 20 pounds back. Just before the quarantine I decided to go back to P90X and I’m on the eighth week now. Also cut back my drinking tremendously. I look and feel 1000 times better.

    Now, to curb boredom, I subscribed to the Beachbody streaming service so I can replace certain segments of the workouts with sessions that target similar muscle groups. For me, I generally need these types of workouts because I don’t have time to go to a gym and it’s just easier to follow instructions from a trainer on a video than to formulate my own plan. Now that I’m back into working out again, I feel like my days aren’t complete if I don’t get at least some type of exercise in.

    Ive always been decently athletic, but I have never really worked out except for a a month or two stretches. What prompted this was someone did the pushup challenge on Instagram and I could barely do 10 pushups. Ive worked up to 30 before failure now.

    I wasn't getting near the protein I need until a a few days ago. I was just eating my deficit. I feel much more full now, I have a whey protein and another brand that is a mix. So far I'm pleased with the results but I'm itching to get some gym time.

    Where do y'all get your yoga classes? Have you paid for an online class or a local studio or something? I think I would like to give it a try but don't even know where to start and would prefer not to pay a fortune for something I have no idea if I will like or keep up with.

    The one thing I love about pushups is that aside from the fact that they’re a great exercise, they’re also a confidence booster because of how quickly you make noticeable gains. When I first started working out I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t even do 5 legit pushups with good form. Within a couple of weeks I was able to do 20 at a time, then those numbers just went up each time I had a session involving pushups. Now there are certain rounds where I wind up doing upwards of 200 by the end of an hour workout.

    I did yoga for the first time in my life when I started the P90X workouts. I always assumed it was kind of a BS workout because every stay at home mom around my neighborhood does it for exercise and not all of them are particularly for. Holy shit was I wrong. I’d definitely start with the beginner stuff by Adrienne on YouTube first just to start getting accustomed to the positions.

    I'm really hoping that come May 4 Seattle does like a "soft" re-opening, at least opening the mountains and hiking trails. All trailheads are currently closed and people's cars are getting towed while they're hiking. Itching to get into the fucking mountains.

    While obviously not the Seattle mountains, we've got a national park mountain around the corner from us. Used to doing trails once a week and I want to get out there so bad.

    is there anywhere where you can buy weights or at least bands? i ordered and paid for some bands and then the place said they ran out. i'm trying to get my money back now. it wasn't an amazon prime place which was my bad, but was through amazon. seems like dumbbells are impossible. seems like bands are impossible to get as well. My wife has 15 pound dumbells so that's all I've got.

    Lately any type of home workout product is all but impossible to find as a people have transitioned to home workouts. However, I would check Target or Walmart because they still occasionally get shipments. I’ve seen bands at my local Target. The dumbbells are all gone. I haven’t been inside a Walmart in forever, but my guess is their clientele is less likely to be that concerned about working out.

    Totally sold out the couple times I've looked. Folks without weights are pretty much fucked at this point. In a selfish way I'm rooting for gyms to open up so demand for this kind of shit drops. I've gotten used to working out at home and just want to build out my garage gym now.

    our dumbass governor is opening everything back up including gyms on the 18th

    would you go to an apt gym that’s never really used at like 3am if you wiped everything down before and after?

    Same with Alabama. My gym is delaying their opening til June 1. They are also a client and in talking with them they are wanting to make sure things don’t spiral out of control and don’t want to be a contributor if that happens. Their plans are to thermal scan everyone that comes in, run at half capacity, have machines spread out, and provide extra sanitizer. They will also run on shortened hours to allow for cleaning in between openings.

    Even considering all that, knowing the broad spectrum of age ranges there, no I won’t be going back until we have a proven treatment or until I know I’ve had it. That’s not only selfish, but I also don’t want to be the asshole that unknowingly introduces it there and gives it to other people.

    On another note, I never cancelled my membership bc I want to make sure they are there when this is over. I encourage everyone else to do the same if you can afford it.

    i should probably hold off, but i already am losing it. i just figured if i just went to my apartment gym when no one else is there and cleaned the equipment before and after it’d probably be fine. i’m sure i would be, but i don’t wanna risk anyone else so you’re probably right about holding off

    My gym sounds like it’s a completely different situation. I think you’re fine if no one else is there and you scrub everything down. I think we are getting to a point in this where mental health is just as important as addressing the covid situation and if you can safely and responsibly let out steam with a workout go for it.

    i guess we'll just have to get some spray and paper towels and wipe down every dumbell and bench and equipment every single time. and carry hand sanitizer around. and stay 6 feet away from people.
