Why did you have to tone your butt for karate? I dont really understand this..?

But thanks for that really good description of how to do the exercise! Im sure all the ladies will be getting into it now

Also I was thinking of doing an Olympic style challenge for the club to participate in against each other if you guys are interested just let me know, I have two sources to pull the exercises from so i can try and make it as easy for everyone to have the required equipment.

    On the off chance someone slaps me in the ass, you know . . . >____>

    Nah, I dunno why lol. I haven't really done that exercise much, it was something that I got told one day and we did it like once or twice but that was it.

    I might participate, depends on what kind of challenges you have in mind.

      You have to build up your muscles in your thigh/butt area because when you kick, that's where the power is suppose to come from.

      Also, who doesn't admire a nice butt?

      CWP- I would be interested in the Olympic workout, and if you need help, let me know.

      OH I see that makes sense.

      I dont need help making it, I have it ready made just got to pick out the ones thatd be easy enough for a lot of people to do.

      With this I also add I was thinking of adding a wall of fame for club challenges. Itll hold the users name the challenge and the time/whatever they completed the challenge in. This could bring more activity to the club and having something to try to best is always fun, what does everyone think of this?

        Power comes from your hips mainly and then your leg muscles. I don't think the butt plays a large part in the strength of a kick.

        I don't mind giving the olympic challenge a go but I don't have any gym equipment, just a bike. I don't go to the gym either, since I work out at home or on my bike.

        A hall of fame sounds interesting as well.

          Why you're joining: I trying to get back into shape. I used to play basketball and throw shot-put and Discus. I hurt myself my 11th grade year of high school and that stopped me from doing a lot stuff my last 2 years of high school. So since then I've gotten out of shape and I don't like it.

          PS. Whats are some of the best Workout apps?

          Welcome Yung!

          Umm best Apps, I dont really use any but NIKE+ tracks the distance you run and fitocracy gives you points for the workout you do etc. I dont use any of them though.

          So this coming Monday I was thinking of starting the Fitness Olympics! It will consist of the exercises I wrote up two post before this one and you still have the weekend to suggest alternatives if you can't perform one of the exercises put on the list. The way to win will be whoever can complete it the fastest at a set weight etc. Hope ya'll excited!

          Well today Nike had an event called game on where everyone tries to beat the most Nike fuel points gained over a day. It was a nice little motivation - my first run since coming back to Australia so I only ran just under 5km.

          But on the bright side I bought a lot of Nike apparel for training in including this dri-fit shirt that shows EVERYTHING wore it today lucky I saw no one I know because yikes

          AND SOUTH AUSTRALIANS SHOULD GET PUMPED FOR THE CITY TO BAY gogogo do it

          Welcome back Impo! Did you pull any hotties with your sexy body
          How did you go with the Nike event did you win?
          Is your Nike stuff awesome or what? Fits nice and comfortable?

          Okay the Olympic challenge has officially started since none of you have decided to chose any I made the executive decision and chose one myself, youll all have to follow now! Sorry. So its going to be time based, with the fastest time getting a place on the new wall of fame! As well as possibly an emblem if I can get it organised with Lightning.

          Okay This is the Workout:

          1. Alternating Dumbbell Switch Steps. (5KG Dumbbells.)
          2. Two-footed long jumps
          3. Medicine Ball throws (5KG Medicine Ball)
          4. Weight Jump Squats. (10kg Dumbbells)
          5. 400 metre run.
          6. Walking lunges with jumps.
          7. Cable Woodchop
          8. Barbell Rotations
          9. Medicine-ball chest pass and run
          10. 1500 metre run.

          The routine:
          1. 15 seconds of doing as many reps as possible.
          2. 5 Reps
          3. 6 Reps
          4. 6 Reps
          5. 400 metres
          6. 12 each leg
          7. 5 each side
          8. 10 Reps
          9. 5 Reps
          10. 1500 metres

          The time for gold/the emblem is 11:42. If you can beat that time youll have the gold emblem and a place on the newly formed wall of fame for a long time! If you have any questions on the workouts and just ask me and Ill explain the work outs in detail for you.

          Also theres going to be other challenges for the wall of fame such as each humpday workout and some run challenges which will all basically be time based.

          Current Wall of Fame:

          Week 1 Hump Day Workout: Thrusters, Sit Ups, Push Ups.
          Holder: CarefulWetPaint with a time of 4:52.

          Hump Day Week 2:
          No holder.

          Hump Day Week 3:
          No Holder.

          Hump Day week 4:
          No holder.

          1500 Metre Run:
          No holder

          3000 Metre Run:
          No Holder

          5000 metre run:
          No holder

          Hope this adds some competition to the club and encourages you all to push yourself harder on certain workout days. Competition on!!

          I didn't get anyone I'll be alone forever

          And the event wasn't one you could win, per se, but just one where everyone bands together and exercises and it was fun!

          and it all fits, got all my new exercising stuff now :D !

          AND I RAN 12KM LIKE THREE HOURS AGO THE PRIDE THE PRIDE

              Oh I see I see! That's interesting then I had a general idea of it but I hadnt really incorporated it before because changing weights is such a pain. /lazy Im sure heaps of people would find that interesting, also I hope you dont mind if I put your workout up as the new gym program, crediting you of course.

              Heres my next workout for you all, it's my personal adaption of a fight club workout used (apparently) by Brad Pitt for his role as Tyler Durden. It's muscle group targeted and incorporates legs instead of only focusing on upper body. Use a weight that allows you to do the set number of reps without failure but any more puts you over this limit.

              3 Sets of each exercise with either 60 seconds rest after each exercise or 90 seconds after every two exercises.

              Monday
              25 Push Ups
              15 Chest Press
              15 Incline Press
              15 Chest Fly

              It's a fairly intense regiment to follow but it should get you fairly ripped in about 8 - 10 weeks. Also feel free to drop the leg workouts or not do all of them if you don't feel the need to, I just have skinny legs so gotta hit them as well as my upper half so I dont look stupid.

              Feel free to tell me what you think of this workout.

              Also if anyone is curious about my current routine feel free to ask and Ill share it with you :)

              Is it bad I don't know what most those are? I've been trying to do some workouts at home but I get stumped to what to do after lunges, squats, pushups, leg-crunch thingies, tricep pull one behind the head, and superman :c

              Know any good videos I can learn any of these other ones from?


              You can tell I am n00b by not knowing the actual name..

              Haha dont even worry about it! A lot of those are gym based moves and I would be pretty surprised if you did know them.

              In all honesty you really dont need to do more then you are already doing, that should be fine enough for you.

              The best place is to just youtube the exercise and youll definitely find a good video demonstration of the movements, if you really want Ill find them myself for you and post/vm them to you.

                Sure that'd be cool! I grabbed a bunch that I've been doing cause I am afraid of working my abs or something too much and forgetting my back.

                Haha my thighs and butt still hurt from two days ago when I did squats until I literally couldn't anymore haha~

                  Okay Kura, I'll find some over the weekend and PM them to you

                  93 welcome to the club! What kind of running do you do? Long distance or short distance? And does yogi mean Yoga? How often do you run and do yoga? Is that the only kind of exercise you do?

                  Hows everyone's work outs going? Anyone on an interesting routine at the moment?

                  Figured id post here as i have a bit of spare time finally.

                  My old laptop broke and i cant get the built in cam to work on this new laptop at all, but ill post progress pics when i get an actual webcam for updates.

                  Basically i have a lot more definition/am more cut that a few months ago since i posted here last, more vascular in appearance in chest etc. About ~147 lbs and i think 11% body fat atm (yeah i lost fat AND gained muscle at the same time whilst i was on a cut which was unexpected especially on a ketosis diet lol), ive also cycled off of creatine for the time being to give my liver a rest lol, which also bloats you up.

                  Im still eating at a calorie deficit (1700 per day and like 2200 ish on workout days) but ive reintroduced carbs again, ~70-100 grams per day and a little more on workout days and lowered my fat intake from being extremely high when i was in ketosis to sort of like 50-70 grams a day. Im going to bulk up again starting November/December time.

                  Still doing a 3 day split in my lifting routine but changed my cardio from interval to more longer continuous moderate paced. I think ill stick to that also, i prefer it alot more truth be told.

                  Anywho, my personal trainer course is going well, intense but fun and im learning a heck of alot, especially about nutrition, injuries, abnormalities and sports specific training etc.

                  Last but not least i have a duathlon which consists of a 3 kilometer run, 16 kilometer bike ride and then a 5 k run coming up, not looking forward to this. 1. Because i suck at endurance and 2. I actually hate anything longer than 20/25 mins running with an unbridled passion. I may also be entering a deadlift competition since for my weight category i can lift a ridiculous amount on all major lifts lol. So yeah fun busy times.

                  Now im going to go into hibernation for like 46 years.

                  Been a while since I posted here (I don't post much in general) but I recently bought myself a set of gymnastic rings. I'm still waiting on them to come but I've used my friends a bit.

                  Personally, I really recommend them. I find them a lot of fun but they also build your stabilizing muscles and are really good for genuine strength. Does anyone else here use them? Or plan to?
