ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR WORKOUT PLAN?

  • ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR WORKOUT PLAN?

    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 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!

    I’m pretty satisfied with my current workout plan. Lots of running, some calisthenics, and having a blast climbing indoors. There’s still some improvements to be made with mobility and strength training, but overall it feels great to be able to do the hobbies I love and look good while doing them.

      Well congrats for sure. Sounds like you are keeping busy with a cardio program that is paying dividends!

    I was not happy with my workout plan, and I had no idea what I was doing. I was one of those newbie’s who would google different plans and select the one that I thought was best. I didn’t know anything about supplements and could not afford a personal trainer. LOL, I look back on those days and wonder what I was thinking.

    Then I found a Discord group that absolutely took me in and helped me find success.

    Sometimes the best support is from eachother!

    I am very happy with my current workout routine, I focus a lot more now on mobility and stretching, which I think should go on sync with strength training. I separate my workouts into upper body and lower body, with one or two good exercises for each muscle group. This gives you the opportunity to work out a muscle week twice a week instead of the once a week chest day for example. Cardio and rest day is also a must. 🙂

    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.

    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!

    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 find that the older I get, the more brutal my workouts need to be! It wakes your body and mind up and really transforms you. I have read experts same similar things. I think people are just afraid to say it because if someone injures themselves, they could be liable. I thought I was done for 7 years ago when I got severe tendonitis in both elbows and a rotator cuff injury in my right shoulder. My workouts were boring and I was having trouble lifting more than 20 pound dumbbells without pain. I rejoined CrossFit several months ago and the coach really puts us through it. I’m handling weights I never dreamed I would ever lift again, and all pain free. I have also dialed in my diet and got animal products out of my meals, except for bivalves occasionally.
