  5. I was reading an article about some apps talking about quitting such as quit smoking slowly, smokefree & quit smoke etc. Is this really a good way to kill the bad habit? If anyone tried please share me the story.
  6. Help with a workout plan...

    Hello David. I think I have replied late for your post since I have just joined. It is absolutely wonderful that you are taking care of yourself and I want to congratulate you that you've joined your local gym. If you are unhealthy then yes start eating salads, veggies and fruits everyday. I know it would be a pain in the ass for the first couple of days but usually around 3 weeks time you will develop a habit of eating well and going to gym everyday. A lot of people will tell you different things but my suggestion to you is when I started going to the gym I only focused on one particular body area. For example, on Mondays I did chest, Tuesdays - Shoulders, Wednesdays - Back, Thursdays - Arms and on Fridays - Legs and then I repeated the same routine for another 4-5 weeks until my muscles got used to it. In terms of supplements I now started taking a brand new supplement called Elev8 that is doing its magic. It is helping me to boost energy levels before and after my workouts which is totally insane. If you are open to the food supplement then click here. Also you can check out exercise routines on YouTube which can help you get started. You can even do home workouts if you ever feel tired going to the gym. I hope this helped you David.

There are a lot of testimonials for this product and if you guys are open to this new product please click here. Thank you
  8. Cardio vs weight training?

    Sounds like you have a plan Rosiebea Best fat burning exercise in my experience is jogging - not quick but work up to continuous 45min - no gym required! remembering one cannot spot reduce fat! Get a programme from the gym you join in September (should be part of your membership fee) & specify beforehand what your specific goals are Good questions! keep in touch
  9. The Cardio Thread! Exercise For Fat Loss

    There is a lot of ways of cardio exercise but according to me Running & Boxing one of the best cardio exercise which helps to burn fat more fast then other exercises..........!
  10. I have a habit of eating too much of food. Whenever I start to eat any meal I don't think of quantity and I eat till I finish the plate even if I am full. I feel like I am eating mindlessly or sometimes I feel I have the stamina to eat more. Is there any effective treatment approach?
  11. Cardio vs weight training?

    I'm a healthy weight (5'10, 9 stone 12lb) but would like to lose some excess fat around my abdomen/legs, I currently don't have access to a gym, would it make sense to focus on cardio/reducing body fat percentage before focusing on weight training when I have access to a gym (September)? I really want to tone up and get stronger but will it be easier when I get rid of some excess fat?

  13. Hi, In my teens I was into gym and fitness but stopped working out due to injury. Now I'm 35 and two weeks into fitness again. I haven't joined a gym yet, as I've decided to ease in slowly to avoid injury. I'm jogging, and workout out at home with dumbells and bodyweight excercises. 1 week ago I used the machine at boots pharmacy to check my body stats. I was 71kg, BMI of 22.8, height 175cm, body fat of 10kg / 14%. I'm a male. I did feel a bit flabby around my belly and wanted to lose the fat before starting an serious workout regime. I immediately cut my daily calorie intake to between 1200 - 1600 calories. I've been eating Eggs, vegetables, tuna, chicken, Continued jogging, weights daily and checked again yesterday, I'm down to 69kg, BMI - 22.5, body fat of 8kg / 11.2%. Today however I feel a bit weak and constant hungry. My question is, have I cut my calorie intake too much? Is it normal to fee quite weak and sometimes even a little light headed! Is 1600 calories dangerously low for 35 year old Male. 3% body fat seems to lot to lose in 1 week and maybe I'm going overboard. Any advice appreciated !

  17. health and nutrition

    Having just started on the forum I don't want to sound like a professional, but receiving sport and work injuries over the years left me with many aches and pains, recently I started using Xenca collagen revitalise powder and noticed that the problems started to ease, they also supply several other health an nutrition products which may be beneficial to people using this forum. Take a look by visiting xencabetterhealth4u.co.uk, there could be something for you, or if need be reply to this post and I will do my best to help.
  18. Help!

    To burn fat, your energy intake (food) has to be less than energy output (activity) One can 'endure' longer doing cardio than strength training so get into jogging, power walking, swimming, gym cardio machines etc - sweat a lot on whatever you enjoy doing! Also watch your diet - I have a simple eating plan, Only eat natural foods, protein eg. meat/ fish/chicken/ eggs/ cottage cheese and 6 'colours': red, orange, yellow, green, white and purple fruit /veg per day Log your belly's inches once a week and let us know how you get on
  19. My Fitness

    You need to do a body composition Often the fat loss is off set with muscle gain - some actually gain weight! but they also change shape, that's what you want! Change your scale to inches around your chest and waist - that's where the fat is and that all you want to lose. Get back to us if you have any more questions
  20. Need help with a workout plan...

    Well done Davida for changing your wellness tide! 1st - Do your strength training before your cardio training (just do your cardio warmup 1st) Do 3 sets 10 reps and the last rep in the last set should be the last one you can do! to failure Let us know how you get on

  22. My Fitness

    I have been exercising since Dec 2016, cross trainer (Elliptical) and weights, I have noticed my body shape is changing, but I cant lose any more weight, I have stayed at the same weight for the past couple of months. why is this?
  23. Help!

    After hours of research this is my last attempt at finding a plan to lose weight at the gym. Google it and thousands of page tell you what NOT to do and not what actually to do. So I hope here someone can give me a link or a plan to lose weight in the gym. Me: overweight, not very familiar with (or good at) weights can do a lot of cardio though, have loads of time on hand so dont mind length sessions; calories intake I have taken down to around 1800 So anyone got a plan or a link to a plan I can follow?
  24. I am new here, and I am new to fitness and the gym generally, so please be nice Just to give you the scenario, I am 6ft 2in and about 16 stone, I am pretty unhealthy eating several takeaways a week, working a deskjob, smoking (but only about 3 a day). I am in a position now where I am feeling motivated to do something about it, so I am making little changes like swapping chips for salad, planking and doing push ups etc, cutting out chocolate in between meals etc. I am not doing everything at once, I think it would be a shock to the system So basically, I have joined a local gym and have been attending for about a month, 3 times a week for about an hour. I am not really looking to loose too much weight, I don't really look fat, I just need a bit more definition and maybe to build a little muscle. So I have been usually doing 30 mins on the treadmill, I do a few mins warm up, then I set the treadmill to 6.5MPH, but I can only do this for 6 mins (when I started could only litterally do 1 min). Then I do 1 minute rest and then 1 minute running again. near the end I up the incline to about 11 and just walk. After this I work a bit on arms and abs, but this is where I get confused, how do I work this? I tend to work on 3 or 4 different machines to do with different muscles in my arms etc, but am I supposed to set the weight so that I fail after a certain amount of reps, how many sets? how many times? Can someone shed some light on this and let me know where I am going right/wrong. Any other advice is also welcome. Thanks.

  26. Increase your protein levels, do compound exercises, don't eat too many calories but don't eat too few.
  27. Here's the photo!! Thanks in advance im a young 6ft 1 male around 25% BF
  28. Newbie needs advice

    No, they're pointless unless your protein intake is already on point. Focus on eating less than you do currently, eating a little bit more protein (chicken, beef, fish) and a little bit more vegetation.
  29. Problems with abs

    Never heard of that before! I'd see a physio or maybe a doctor.
  30. Problems with abs

    So, I have done a workout where I was doing pull ups whilst holding and L sit, whilst doing this you get hit in the stomach, after the first one I felt fine but the second one winded me so I stopped to save it for another day, now I have one of my abs the has kind of split into three, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this or has experienced this, I would like to know if it's for life or if it's just bruising
