  1. *Tiger Bass' Workout Log*


    Age: 19
    Height: 5'7"

    Goal: To greatly decrease my BF% while putting on muscle.
    First Target weight: 185 lbs

    Diet:
    -yogurt
    -grilled chicken
    -apples
    -bananas
    -basic salad mix with fat free raspberry vinaigrette
    -whole grain rice with grilled chicken
    -whole grain spaghetti with low fat sauce and grilled chicken
    -turkey, grilled chicken, and tuna sandwiches with low fat swiss
    -handful or so of cocktail peanuts as snacks
    -water, water, and more water

    Background information: I started the weight watchers diet around January and weighed approximately 255lbs. About 3 months in, I had lost about 30 lbs and went off the Weight Watches diet and started to use a more common sense approach. This consisted of absolutely no fast food, junk food, soda, etc and only food that contains some sort of real nutritional value. I periodically give myself a break from this when I go out to dinner with my family which is approximately once a month.

    I have no been actively going to the gym and all weight loss can be accounted to my day to day activities such as walking to class, not eating fat and calorie laden food, and simply a lack of eating. Realizing that this might not be the most effective nor safest way to become healthier, I have decided to start going to the gym.

    I have quite a few genuine medical problems that make it difficult and sometimes discouraging. I have very bad ankle problems that make it very difficult for me to endure long periods of cardio since most put large amounts of stress on my ankles. So far, the bike is the best I can do and can do about 20 continuous minutes on average. And for reasons I don't feel comfortable releasing yet, my gains for exercises involving my biceps, and especially my pectorals, will Always be low.

    My workout schedule is Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evening. I will be expanding this and hopefully move them to the morning as I become more accustomed to working out and waking up early. I will always measure my cardio length in time when my heart rate is above 160bpm. I measure dumbbell exercises as the weight of 1 dumbbell that I use, even if I'm using two. Here is my progress thus far:

  2. Congrats on the progress thus far...KEEP AT IT!!!

  3. I'm going to take it easy today, mainly just work on cardio and do low weight/high rep on the weights.

    Should I be concerned with my rapid weight loss? I've been eating about 5 meals a day, consisting of anything from a banana to a huge salad mixed with chicken and tuna.

  4. Whats your day look like, diet wise...?

  5. Yesterday's Schedule
    10:00 Wake up, banana
    12:30 chicken sandwich
    4:00 Yogurt
    7:00 Turkey sandwich
    9:00 Handful of peanuts
    9:30 Went to gym
    11:00 Salad with about 1/3 of a large can of tuna
    1:30 Went to sleep

  6. Tuesday (10/2):
    Cardio: 10 min at 170+ bpm
    DB Shoulder Press: 20x10, 20x10, 20x10
    DB Seated Curl: 15x10, 15x5, 15x5
    DB Front Raise: 10x10, 10x10, 10x10
    DB Wrist Curl: 15x15, 15x15, 15x15

    Weighted Lever Crunch: 60x15, 60x15, 60x15, 60x15

    Body Weight: 194.2 lbs

    After reading THIS!, I have decided to adjust my approach on cardio. Instead of shooting for lengthy sessions at 160+ bpm, I'm going to start aiming for 15-20 min sessions at 170+ bpm. Does this sound like a good idea or does it really even matter at this point in time for me?

    Eat more when you wake up....

    Heres the basic formula I keep...Carbs high in the morning and tapered down throughout the day. Fats high in the morning and night, Protein constant throughout the day.

    You need to do a little work on the diet, you're probably pretty lethargic all day with the huge deficit...I'm a little beat at the moment but tomorrow hopefully I can get some more info to ya....

  8. out of curiousity, who else is from caraudio.com?

  9. Shakesallday is the person who showed me this website. I can't find who else said they were over here, but I'm sure it was more than just him.

  10. Nice, glad to have ya...

    ...now about the diet...

    You want ot keep calories constant over the course of the day, not fluctuate so much. Your maintenance is probably around 2500 cals @ 195lbs, so if weight loss is your goal I'd drop down to about 2000 for the day.

    Going/Feeling hungry isn't really a good thing.

    Definitely starting to see some progress in my shoulders. Getting harder to push myself while doing flys and curls though. My muscles just get so fatigued that a day isn't enough time to let them rest. It's the main reason I haven't even tried the bench press my last couple sessions.

    I also improved my diet as you suggested.

    One last thing, any suggestions for more exercises I could add to my routine to further workout my upper back and shoulders? I feel like I just don't get a thorough enough exercise with what I have now, especially my back.

  12. I'm not used to doing such high volume...where did you come up with this in the first place?

  13. Do you mean my number of exercises? It's just kind of a list I put together based off a couple other websites explaining the exercises.

  14. Missed Sunday because I had to study for an exam. Tried to go Saturday but the gym was closed for tailgating. Anyways, todays log...

    Feels good. I actually start looking forward to going to the gym now.

    Did the treadmill for the first part of my cardio today. I was pleasantly surprised how well I was able to handle it. I can't go very fast because I have limited mobility in my ankles. If I crank the angle all the way up though, I get a pretty good workout at a pace less than that of a jog.

  24. Saturday (11/3):

    Peck Deck: 80x10, 85x10, 85x10, 90x10

    I know AM cardio on an empty stomach is suppose to me the best, but I had absolutely zero energy when trying to do this. Any way to remedy this problem?

    Body Weight 191.0

  27. What kind of cardio are you doing? Just running/walking on the treadmill?

  28. Stationary bike. I generally get my heartrate up to atleast 170 before the end of each session.

  29. I'm not sure whether my fears are a little irrational or not, but should I be worried about having a lot of excess skin at the rate I'm going? What exercises should I add to my list in hopes of countering such results?

  30. I went from 190+ to <170 without any "extra skin" leftover.

    I would mix up your cardio methods... running, eliptical, HIIT, etc.
