Do you workout son!? 🧐 πŸ‹οΈ

danielkrupnyy profile image Daniel Krupnyy ・1 min read

Hi comrades! πŸ’ͺ

I think you now that sitting work isn't good enough for your body.

If speaking of me, my training program in past was similar to this:
mr.Bean Workout

But then I found out that it's not the best program πŸ˜„

I don't like go to the gym and I solved to find something for home training.

I've been training for Insanity by Shoun T. This program gave me a very big endurance πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Then I found App - Centr by Chris Hemsworth. Now I'm training by this program πŸ‹οΈ

So how do you usually maintain your health? πŸ€”

Does archery count? πŸ˜… I mean, it is a sport after all. Other than that, I'm definitely a couch potato! πŸ₯”

P.S. : current lockdown measures make it IMPOSSIBLE to workout as usual (you know, surrounded by others and such). Might as well jump rope in my backyard since there ain't sh!t to do outside anyway 😀

Once tried doing workouts using some mobile app named BodBot, but it didn't really do much to me. πŸ˜… Wasn't losing any weight despite my goal set on losing weight (Bodbot adapts its exercises to the goals you've chosen) and definitely sweating hard.

I also once joined a badminton club. Eventually I was banned because they thought I had some dangerous health condition due to how much I had to lie down as to not to faint (note: nothing's wrong with me, I just overdo myself and have low blood pressure by default). Conveniently I was banned the moment covid began and we got in lockdown, so I haven't attempted to defend myself on that matter.

Now I'm just trying to stay healthy with an exercise bike, by doing gardening, and when the weather's good enough I just play some badminton in the garden with my partner. Emphasis on trying. πŸ˜‚

For weight loss, exercise isn't going to really do much since it will also increase hunger. I recommend changing your diet instead. Dealing with nutrition first also has the added benefit of making exercise easier and, depending on the individual, being less prone to injury.

Not sure if you've read everything else in the thread, but I'm doing exactly that. I ate way too many carbs (which I've drastically cut off after doing keto for 3 months and currently limiting the intake permanently), but other than that I've had the sufficient amount of nutrients my whole life.

I was never overweight until at a certain point in my life that was caused by multiple factors. I haven't been able to lose that weight again ever since, despite eating even healthier than before I was overweight.

Wow, your training history is very interesting! If you want to get rid of stubborn fat, you need to reduce your calories. And it's all.
I was overweight, and I burned it only when the calorie content was reduced. I stopped eating all sugary foods and all flour products. It was hard, but it was worth it)

Haha, diet advice on dev.to!

I already did what you said. I never really liked sweet things like sugary food in the first place, I was on a strict keto diet for 3 months (recommended by my doctor) and my carbs intake is currently still limited. My fat levels were also already low, so that was definitely not an issue. It's just not working out I guess. πŸ˜…

You say you completely cut off on flour products. Do you mean you did that permanently? That's really impressive. πŸ˜„ I don't think I use a lot of products that contain wheat nowadays, since I mainly use alternatives, but I don't see myself never eating wheat bread ever again. I only have bread about once a month but I still absolutely love it lol!

I don't really know much about this kinda stuff, but people always say that just healthy food and moving a lot don't work separately. You have to do both. And I'm mostly missing the moving part. πŸ˜‚

I just started getting back into the gym (I was really into it years ago, then started spending more time focused on learning dev). I'm running the Greyskull LP program which is a good program for beginners and people getting back into the gym. It's really flexible and as a result can be modified to whatever your goals are.

It's also referred to as GSLP. There's a variant called Phrak's GSLP and it's become a go-to for beginning and returning lifters in r/fitness. Here's some more information about it. There's a whole book about it with a lot more information, but this should be enough to get the gist. It's a 3 day/week program which focuses on compound lifts and then allows for accessories, circuits, etc depending on goals.

I have been reading a bunch of books showing extensive research about the necessity of exercising. My psychiatrist also could not stress more with me about doing it consistently. Those resources together finally convinced me that exercising, especially cardio should be done at least 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes a day. I finally managed to build the habit of doing cardio every day for 30 minutes. As my doctor said, it does not have to be a crazy workout. I just need to make your heart beat faster and to make you breathe more heavily. Right now I am doing HIIT, but when I get bored of it I change. The exercise does not matter much. Find something that you like and do it.

I workout to BOD workouts. Have you heard of Shaun-T? Well guess what? He's my teacher and hes INSANE!! YOU! CAN DO THIS! COME ON YO!!! LET'S GOOOOO !!!!

Right now im doing Shaun Week and while it only lasts a week, this is my second week and I absolutely love it.

Other workouts (not cardio) I'd recommend are The Work by Amolia Cesar and you can't forget about doing The Prep first, because if you want to do The Work, you have to do The Prep.

Another wonderful cardio program I'd recommend would have to be Morning Meltdown 100 by Jericho Matthews and DJ Josh (i think that's his name) she's insane too, very diverse workout program with a focus on "goal reflection".

Can't recommend BeachBodyOnDemand enough it's seriously good with like, I guess 100's of established programs with highly skilled instructors. A workout in particular that I haven't done has got to be P-90X. Very similar to The Work with weights and cardio combined, don't think there's a "prep" workout.

This is the list of programs I have done over the course of 2 years approximately (from July 31st of 2019) that is 548 days, and on average that's 6.16 workouts per week.

  • Insanity
  • Insanity MAX:30
  • T-25
  • Morning Meltdown 100
  • The Prep (3)
  • The Work (4)
  • Shaun Week (1)

Yes, I do workout "son".

Since the gym closed in pandemic (now reopened but I don't dare to go), I made a push-up website:
pushups.ndn.today

Supported browsers: Firefox desktop, Chrome desktop, Chrome Android.
I built the routers and repository servers.

Vendors have been sending me discounts and swags to get featured with some push-ups in their honor.
