    Evaluating ones fitness and plan to improve is always so multidimensional. Many evaluate both in one dimension, they are happy….. or not, instead of evaluating what and how they are proceeding to achieve their desired results. My own plan is a mix at the moment. Very pleased with my cardiovascular work this summer season, some challenges with my upper body resistance work, I stessed a deltoid and is causing me some interesting moments. Training around that injury. My morning body weight work varies, but I’m consistent with it all. So, to you all, my RJ brothers, how do you evaluate your overall fitness health and your current workout plan. Why are you satisfied. (or not) and what are you doing to improve it?

    Yes, I am satisfied with it. Modest as it is. I still get stares when I am at our local gay bars. Of which there are several here in our little gay village of Wilton Manors.

      That’s awesome, keep up the great work. Modest or not, an exercise plan of any kind has great effects!

    Well I restarted my workout plan since few days ago. I had many struggles due to the pandemic and now I got back to training. Anyways, I think diet is extremely important. You can always improve your exercises and the way you want to strengthen your muscles or parts of your body, but the correct food and a healthy style of life are fundamental to get your goals. So far, im going step by step after many months out of training, but we will see if I can recover the body I used to have and have the discipline to control my diet.

    I have been quite consistent with getting to the gym three times a week. My workout plan is okay for the most part but it could be better and somewhat more effective. However I have completely ignored the chest and pecs because they are impossible to develop and strengthen and have focused on all other body parts instead. Some guys have criticized me for abandoning my chest and pecs and that I am going to create problems for myself down the road. However I do have a bit of a hard time changing things up in my workout routine and I seem stuck in the same pattern every time I go to the gym. I have noticed some aesthetic improvement in my physique since getting back into the gym consistently and also biking everywhere and running four miles every other day.

    Getting more and more satisfied as I go. I found a great youtube channel by Ryan Humiston. He is the best I have found to help me meet my personal goals. And he is funny as F N Hell.

    I lift 5 days a week. I do full body workouts on all 5 days. I lift moderate to heavy weights in a 12 to 20 rep range–no more lifting heavy for me. It is too hard to maintain big muscles as you age especially when you have to watch wear and tear on your joints. Lifting too heavy no longer gives me the get results I like, I lose the mind-to-muscle connection and just get bulky, and if that’s your goal, knock yourself out, but I end up looking like a fucking bulldog. –Also, look at poor Arnold. Once the muscle God of the world, now the dude looks like someone let all of the air out of his man titties. Big old muscles sag if you can’t keep up with the demands of heavy lifting. That is a lot of energy, fuel (food) and commitment that most people cannot maintain. Better to be lean or ripped in the long run. As John Adams our second president so wisely said, “In all things, you MUST consider the end.”

    I also do some kind of cardio for at least 60 minutes every day. Sometime on the weekends I can do a lot more. Hiking all afternoon or biking all day, kayaking all day etc. I do fun cardio. I don’t do cardio for any other reason–only if it is fun. I do not do my cardio inside. I live in the Mid-west. We have brutal winters and brutal summers and about 2 weeks on either side of winter and summer that is nice…otherwise, you gotta cope and get out there no matter what and even if…Having a partner that is not active is non-negotiable. Keep up or find someone that wants to sit around and knit sweaters with you. Cheers.

      Ryan Humiston! LOL. I thought I was the only person who was obsessed with him. Sometimes I have to play his videos four or five times because the first time or two I’m too busy drooling and pondering why life is so unfair that I can’t marry him. 😢

      But when I can pry my eyeballs off of his muscles and ruggedly handsome face while constantly on the lookout for his dickprint, (I digress), his workouts are pretty gimmicky to be honest. I actually built a workout program around his recommendations. I’m embarrassed at how much time I spent doing this….pausing his videos to do screenshots of him doing the exercises, etc.

        I totally feel you on Ryan!!! He makes me LMFAO!!! In over 30 years of working out I have never gotten results like I have with his methods. My arms are 1.5 inches bigger in the last 4 months…I just found him 4 months ago. Doing 20-30 reps? I would never have done that in a million years, but I tried it and fuck if it didn’t work!!! Ryan in the man…and yeah, he is something hot to look at too!!

        He’s certainly easy on the eye but I found some of his humour a bit heavy handed and his exercise plans hard work for my age. Why is it that so many You Tube exercisers love their loud intro music? My man of choice is now Sean Nalewanyj. A calm and measured approach suits me better now.

    I have come to realize that my workout plans tend to evolve over an extended period. I’d actually like to be using equipment, but since Covid I’ve been hitting money problems and had to let go of gym memberships. I currently use body weight, dumbbells and resistant bands. The only thing I’m really unhappy or unsure of is if I am getting the maximum experience for my muscles to build. (I have seen results but I’m definitely new and over think so I’m always wondering “am I doing it right.”) The other thing I’d actually like to change is the amount of supplements I consume. I drink a lot of protein powder, I also use C4. However, I’m definitely looking for alternatives like working more meat into my diet. I actually bought a quick to go blender so I can blend up a good healthy foods on the go rather than packing down powders.

      Josh, sounds like you are doing an awesome job and I applaud your efforts. Hopefully more opportunities will be present to expand what you are doing eventually. Sounds great!

    I just joined the gym after a long time away do to a injury to my shoulder. With 40lbs of extra weight and flappy muscles I decided to get advice from a trainer. I was so disappointed that she wanted me to put on more weight and was didnt address my weak and sore shoulder. I am thinking of just going slow and easy myself and then when my shoulder is stronger then hit the weights hard. I tried swimming but lets face it ..the breast stroke doesnt babby the shoulder at all.

      Well sorry to hear about your shoulder and hope it improves soon. The trainer didn’t listen to you and your concerns and/ or ask the right kind of questions. I’d suggest chatting with another trainer(s) and get additional input. Kudos for getting back to the gym and making an effort. I hope you continue to improve!
