Gym Equipment And Weight Loss

Hi All,

There was a thread on FF going back around 6 months ago regarding weight loss and muscle gain. I was around 93kg at the time and I am 186 cm tall when i read it and though to myself i am getting a little bit heavy so i did some extensive reading over the next month and devised my own plan with a lot of mixed thoughts.

Within the last 5 months I have been going to the Gym 3 to 4 times a week and latley slowing off a little. I am now down to 80kg with a hell of a lot more muscle bulk than i have ever had. Im currently taking protein shakes on my workout days and love it. One problem is my gym membership has expired and I can not afford to go anymore. I am now going to buy myself some weights so I can save money. I also would like to help others out with what I did and how I done it so if anyone is interested reply to the thread. Mostly my diet changed i ate just more often around 5 to 6 times a day to keep the metabolism running and all soft drink was dropped.

Also if anyone has any gym equipment Like a bench press, Barbells, Dumbells that they dont use and want to get rid of em to the right buyer PM me.

Ready to help
Steve B

Re: Gym Equipment And Weight Loss

I have tried heaps of differant protiens, rule of thumb if moeny is tight take 1 shake 30 mins before workout and one directly after workout there i slike a 45 minute window after a workout that will close so everthing has to be taken before it closes.

If you have a little bit more $$ to throw around take one in the morning one before training and one after training also take one in the morning on your non training days. I also must stress do not to any type of cardio 8 hours before of 8 hours after a Weights workout. Your body will otherwise burn the muscle that gain it so to speak.

I have a current 2 day split program, it was on a three but have been a little slack I guess I am a lound to be it's Xmas. Plus my gyms bloody shut when I get home so its getting me angry thats also why I want to get my own weights they can never make up there mind when there open.

Just make sure the protein has around 25 - 30 grams of protein per 30g scoop. Price really means nothing, I have tried some expensive ones with the same results as the cheaper ones I guess its experimenting. I usally buy a 3 kg tub that last's just on a month to month and a half around $60 - $80

WPI (WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE) is more for after training quicker absortion and weight loss.

WPC (Whey PROTEIN CONCENTRATE) has more carbs and will make you put on more bulk.

Hope some of this info helps

Re: Gym Equipment And Weight Loss

My brother after his first knee injury was overweight and was ridiculed at school because of it. After he did his knee, his whole attitude changed, and the rehab he did consisted of a lot of running, swimming, cycling and weights. He lost a lot of weight and also put on a reasonable amount of muscle. He has changed so much and is a lot happier because of it.

It is definately a great thing to be doing...and I'm glad you mentioned the fact that you eat 5 to 6 times a day...because that is one point people lose it on..they think that if they eat less that they will get better. A common misconception. One thing my brother did in particular eating-wise though was cut out a lot of carbohydrates in his diet....a bad thing for you to actually do..but the quickest way to eat away the fat - use more energy than you consume.

I really need to do something though...I am definately not the correct weight for my height. Alas, I never get off my arse to do something.

Cheers for that Steve. I not too worried about putting on the bulk but more using the fat stored when training. I will check out the stores after new year for the ones with WPI. I used to take L-Cartine to help my metabloism, it worked well but I thought I better get my body to do it on its own. To help I have moved into low GI foods. I am on a 3 day program myself and find it easier. But the damn gym is shut for 1.5 weeks due to chrissy and renovations. So the new year I will be back into it.
