Ever since I got my truck and installed mud tires on it, I've been doing off-road driving a lot. It's not much of an exercise, unlike hunting. Now I ordered a bike and will start cycling soon but I need to build up my stamina by jogging. I'm looking forward to running away from my sedentary lifestyle since I'm not getting any younger.

I've been doing a carb and sugar free diet. The first week was hard. Now it's getting easier. I've lost 65 pounds since starting it. I also have a consistent energy level.

I was making great progress with working out and eating right until about two months ago. Then...well...life got in the way and I fell off. Thing are back on track now and its back on that horse. Finally able to get back into a routine. I'll wait until this weekend to hop on the scale and get my starting (again) weight. I would say "wish me luck", but I don't need it!

I'm trying hard not to let that happen and keep up my workouts, if anything I am trying to up my reps now and make them harder and I'm up to running twice a week now without being fatigued.

I did haul a 120 lb davit base around yesterday and the rigging for a good bit so I didn't need to workout when I got home. Sum bitch was heavy for dimensionally not being real big

Any of you guys into cycling? I just dropped some coin on a Trek Project 1 Domane. I just think cycling is easier on my knees compared to running. I've been trying to do 25 miles a day. I really want to start tackling some nice gradients. What do you guys try to keep your heart rate at when going up steeper hills?

Years ago I was into cycling. I would ride to and from work in the summer, about 20 miles each way. It was great. At the time, my belly was too big for drop handlebars. I went with a flat bar road bike. Today I still have a Felt Speed 50, though I don't ride as much as I'd like. I will say this, get a couple pairs of bike shorts. The spandex kind with the maxi-pad thing sewn into the crotch. If you don't want to be seen riding in spandex, throw some regular shorts over them but the sewn in crotch pad is a life saver on long rides.

Lots of runners turn to cycling because of knee issues. My knees were blown so bad (not from running) I had to wrap them daily for years. Once I took up cycling three years ago, my knee issues have for all intent and purpose disappeared.

For steeper grades, the secret is cadence. Do not 'grind'. 'Spin' instead. Higher rpms at slightly lower power with each rev (good) yields the same or better sustained power than lower rpms with higher power per rev (bad).

I pretty much don't pay attention to HR, although I do track it. I am much more interested in pacing by keeping rpms and power in sustainable zones depending on the length of the climb and grade. I'll tackle short 0.2 or 0.3 mile 15% grades much differently than I will 20 mile 5% grades.

No updates in here for awhile so how is everyone doing? Hopefully you guys are still at it.I finally hit my 3rd and "final" weight goal this week of 180lbs. Down 65 lbs since March. The difference in the way I feel is amazing.

I could actually go to 170-175 I think....Mrs. says I am showing signs of anorexia lol.

I am hovering at 185 to 190, up to running at least a couple times a week usually a couple miles each time on up and down hard grades. Incorporating more bodyweight exercises into my upper body regimen, I actually got out 20 pull-ups without stopping last week, which for as long and skinny as my arms are I was pretty stoked about.

I think the running and cardio is what really helped me lose weight. Especially when I started doing it in the morning. In the beginning I did high reps of light weight but the last month or so have started trying to build some strength with heavier weight.

I am like you with the long skinny arms. My genetics never have been such that I can get very strong. It is frustrating because I am in the best shape of my life, but feel weak as hell when it comes to lifting weights. I was a lot stronger when I was a 250 lb fat ass lol.

I don't lift at all, Chuck Norris machine and body weight exercises,free weights are no friends to my joints and I never really gained or did very well with them. I have only been at it hard about 5-6 months now but I am literally in way better shape than I was when I was 20, I would beat the shit out of a 20 year old version of myself no contest. I wouldn't say I have really put on any size, just toned and strengthened and moved fat from areas and turned it into well exercised muscle.


Herschel Walker is good inspiration, that dude for his age could beat the shit outta 99.9% of people walking on this planet and he is up there in age a bit. Doesn't lift weights ever.


I also tend to trick my chuck norris machine because I only weigh so much I add weight when I need to up difficulty, usually ammo cans, but I like it, allows me to work ranges of motion you can't do with free weights and also works those small little stabilizer muscles really well.

Holy smokes that is awesome man. And hard to do. I went from 221 to 176, took a job w high stress and long hours (all meals at desk) and went back up to where I am now which is about 220. I should be no more than say 200 or so. Diet is terrible and that is the main culprit. Need to get back on the wagon.

The overworked stress thing is pretty tough to deal with. I need to work on handling stress better too. I get way to worked up over things and that is just as bad as being out of shape I think. I found that exercising is the best thing for me to get my mind off of things. Wasn't going to do anything tonight but I am working legs and forearms just because I feel like I need to do something other than watch TV.

Oh and picking my 2 yr old up apparently wrong tweaked my back and I'm having some soreness in my left wrist (I'm right handed)
I've been using dumbbells and stationary bike...wondering if using wrong form on the weights....guess this is why it could be worth it to seek a professional trainer..? Thoughts on that or experience

Stretch, every day, stretch some more, keep up fluids and make sure you aren't deficient on potassium.

I cut out sugar and pop (soda) a few weeks ago, I have not changed lifestyle which is mostly sedentary due to work even though I have a standing desk, but I’m already scrunching down on my belt considerably, amazing what how cutting that out had an almost immediate (2-3 weeks is immediate) impact on my size

I’m maintaining being skinny since leaving the Army and plan to keep it that way

Yes sir that is the #1 thing I contribute my weight loss to. Cutting out the sugar.

I started 9 months ago after an injury, pretty thin at 5'11" 160lbs. my goal is to increase strength size and stamina, basically make my body a machine. Since my last post here on 6/18/2017 I've put on about 11lbs, body fat has gone down. I'm at 180-82 lean right now, want to get up to and maintain a lean 195. I do bench press, pistol squats, and massive amounts of pull ups and chin ups and dips. Weighted pull ups/dips really put a lot of mass on my body, I'm a classic "hardgainer".

I think the fact that I changed to a healthier diet and stopped drinking really helps. I also experienced far better gains when I switched to making my own "gainer" shakes with banana/oats/PB/milk instead of the expensive gainer supplement powders.

g19 in my ccw holster, inside the small backpack I bring to the gym. backpack usually has a small towel, water bottle, sweatshirt, protein bar in the big pocket. holstered g19 in middle pocket, and I put my phone, keys and wallet in the front pocket usually. I just set my pack down in whatever corner im working in.

but the "gym" I go to isn't a real gym lol it's just the one that's at my apartment complex. Its more like a large garage with a bench and pull up/dip bars with a few treadmills.

So this is fun, I stay pretty fit, mostly cycling and weight training. However every year I run a 5k Turkey gobble thing with my family.

I ran it this year as usual and now the bottom of my left foot fucking hurts like hell.

I have been googling around bit and have come across a few possibilities, stress fracture, plantar fasciitis?

Any tips from filers? Its been hurting since thanksgiving.

I'll add my .02.

I'm a very dedicated forager. I forage wild plants and mushrooms almost every day. The hiking + the healthy eating has me in the best shape of my life, plus I have learned so much about what I can and cannot consume in my neck of the woods the passed few years that I am confident enough to survive out here year round, even in the cold months if I can harvest some wild game on top of the limited supply of other edibles this time of year. That and Winter preparations like drying leaves, roots, etc & storing them.

This lifestyle is in my opinion the most important if you are aiming for self sufficiency, which was my initial aim and is now also an extremely enjoyable lifestyle.

The health benefits are also endless from eating a wild food diet. In fact, after suffering from Graves and Hashimotos Diseases most of my life, I no longer suffer from them and my levels have been normal since I have been eating wild food regularly and taking motherwort & lemon balm tinctures. My gut problems like IBS and constant bloating that I've delt with since middle school has also completely gone away.

All in all, I feel like a million bucks, and know that I will never starve. People always ask me if I work out, I just tell them I go to the woods.

It could be stress facture or plantar fasciitis (but Im no dr). I ran 60+ miles a week, averaging 9 miles per day in addition to weightlifting and have ran into everything you can imagine including those. If you are like me and hate going to see a doctor there are a few things you could try to do to see if its a stress fracture that a dr showed me at a marathon/half marathon race once. Try hopping on one foot. If the impact causes pain youíve likely got a stress fracture. If its this no way around taking time off from non-weight bearing activity.

If its not a stress fracture it most likely is an overuse injury, plantar fasciitis. Very common in my book for runners. Its involves the tendon that runs lengthwise across bottom of foot. Its a sharp, stabbing pain and sometimes comes out of nowhere. Could be any number of reasons why you have it if you do:
1) Running in wrong type of shoe for your foot (not enough support, etc), 2)increasing training volume or intensity too quickly or
3) tight/weak calf muscles.
I always tell my athletes to stretch properly which include stretching feet and I always carry a tennis ball in my bag so athletes I train, workout with or myself can use prior to physical activity. If its plantar fasciitis I recommend you roll both your feet (yes both, one foot may now be taking on more weight/stress due to one foot injured) a couple times a day (especially getting out of bed and right before getting in) and stretching feet prior to any activity. Even if it doesnt hurt do this for a few weeks.
Again, Im no doctor and I do stress having a professional look at it but if you are like me I hope this info helps. Id be interested to see an update...

I ran it this year as usual and now the bottom of my left foot fucking hurts like hell.

I have been googling around bit and have come across a few possibilities, stress fracture, plantar fasciitis?

Any tips from filers? Its been hurting since thanksgiving.

People neglect their core.
Very important.
A weak core will lead to back problems in almost everyone at some point.

As for the wrist, not nearly enough information. It will probably resolve itself if you use some common sense.

People also don't warm up and stretch before they perform strenuous activity most times.








Well I haven't lost anymore real weight I stay between 185 and 190 and have really only put on muscle since my waist has started shrinking. Problem is now I can't wear a belt, I am so slim that my pants pretty much just work there way down no matter what I do and eventually it's like a tourniquet around my waist. After long days at work the last month or so I can definitely tell the constriction is irritating my back.



So I got me a couple pairs of suspenders, a bit goofy at first but the comfort and mobility is so much better, I don't think I'll ever go without at least a couple pairs of them ever again. I wish I could wear a belt only but my waist type won't hold it in that exact spot with a belt unless I crank it so tight it's cutting off bloodflow. Any looser and it just gradually slides down my waist as I do anything, then the gnawing pain starts. I frankly may have been dealing with this longer then I realize.



Overly tight belts or pants can cause back issues as well it seems.

After feeling like I wasn't going anywhere the last couple months, I am making an appointment with the doctor for a full workup. Going to have him check on my thyroid and T levels for sure. I am betting on thyroid, as there has been some issues throughout my family with them.

That is not a bad idea if you have a history of it in your family and very well could be fighting against you big time.

I wasn't aware until I talked to some family over Thanksgiving.

It's good info to have.

I wasn't able to even get an appointment until the beginning of Jan, but sooner is better than later.
