Anyone else tried this ??

 

I have managed, in my footballing absence, to build a rather impressive spare tyre around my midrift.

 

For this reason i am trying to lose a substantial amount of weight now, (around 2 stone)

 

I am going on a 4 week alcohol free tint after next tuesday. And am trying hard to lose what i have put on, for the moment i am not joining the Gym as due to work and need for an op on my knee i can't sign up for anything more than a 3 month membership.

 

So, i found this site http://www.hundredpushups.com

 

By the end of 6 weeks you should be able to perform 100 push ups non stop.

 

I doubt i will make it, but worth a go.

Started doing this but got bored after a week. My start point was pretty low so I decided to do it over 12 weeks, I reckon 6 weeks is a bit racy.

 

You need to be careful if you are after rapid weight loss. The temptation is to go all guns blazing for the first few weeks but it is easy to get either over-tired or disheartened and then return to bad habits. My advice is start off gradually and then up the intensity as you go along. It can be hard to go the gym etc after a long day at work so might be worth considering incorporating exercise into your normal routine day e.g. cycling to work etc

It is something i have done before, basically i have torn my ACL again, i did it when i was 18 and piled the pounds on but worked hard to lose them, unfortunately it looks like i have re injured myself and again waiting for the NHS to sort it i have been doing more or less no exercise for a year.

 

I am pretty good when i get into exercise, but find i need to set targets or else, like you say, i get bored, i am basically going to do some running, and press ups, weights in my own time. I have set targets which i intend to meet, the 100 press ups is one, but i will give my self 10 weeks, 6 weeks is, like you say, too hard.

Somewhat unbelieveably I seem to have lost 10lbs in 10 days according to my scales - they are unreliable but I haven't altered them so it might be right. My regime has been cutting down on calories more than upping the exercise rate.

Can you walk / swim at the moment? Because they're reckoned to be the most efficient fat burners. (Power walking, that is, not strolling to the pub :D)

 

And they do say that the quicker you lose weight, the quicker you'll put it back on. So have you thought about a lifestyle change for food? Because that's what you have to do, I think.

Yeah, i have. I have been eating a lot healthier lately anyways, the missus is on slimming world, so i took the chance to remove all the unhealthy stuff from the house, and follow that regime (loosely).

 

I don't mind eating a meat and some green veg at all to be honest, i'm not even that fussed on carbs but realise i need to eat a certain amount. So sparingly eat boiled pot's.

 

Yeah can walk, and run, just 'shouldn't' really do any twisting sports but i have played the odd 6 a side game recently.

 

I'm not a fan of swimming, i used to swim but never really fancied it as a fat burner, you can tone up swimming but prefer running for weight loss.

But running could cause even more probs for your knee (I used to be a fitness instructor / dancer BTW so know a little bit).

 

Pavement / road running jars the knees a lot and soft terrain running can cause twisting problems. That's why power walking is so good - no stresses on the knees.

i have lost stone and a half since February, having also done my ACL and piled the pounds on post-op.

 

Well on the road to my usual only slightly chunky self!

 

Having the use of a free gym actually AT work has helped, can finish work, have a good workout and still be home for 7. Think if i had to go home, then go to the gym i would mostly just stay at home! X training with a monster hill to battle has helped (running too far still a bit dodgy, still got a tiny thigh!) followed by a good 15minute Row. Steamed veg and steamed chicken for dinner a few nights a week, Roberts your mothers brother

Most gyms have short term memberships available either this month or next month ( 3 month memberships for the summer )

 

Even if they don't, all have a clause which means when you have your op you will be able to freeze your membership for up to 6 months.

 

I am just starting on my lard-off again, I started it after Wembley but tore my hamstring which set me back, but getting back on it.

 

I am going to train 6 days a week and follow my 'diet' 6 days a week. My day off I will drink beer ( in proportion though ) and eat what I want.

 

Drink 2 litres of water a day. No more than 3 coffee/tea a day.

 

My diet is simple. I won't eat any Carbs, so no bread, potato or pasta... chicken or tuna and veg for lunch and veg and lean meat for tea.

 

I will split my 6 days on with one day cardio, next day weights.

 

I reckon I will lose a stone each month, although I only really need to lose 2 stone max.

Nah, don't have IPhone, i do have a X Trainer at home which i need to start pummelling again for a decent time.

 

Yeah, like Stevo said, it was easy back in the day when i was at Barton as Flemming was just a short walk/drive away but getting home from work etc makes it harder.

 

I may look into that cheers Stu, 3 month membership would be great, chamberlyne isn't far from me, and having the freeze membership thingy would be good too.

 

Used to do about lvl 14 -15 in my Barton Peveril goal machine hey day ;) but likely could get to about lvl 3 now lol.

 

Drink only water anyways and drink a lot of green tea, not fussed about the perfect push ups yet and TBH wouldn't do 50-100 yet anyways !!

 

Cheers guys, i'll let you know how i get on anyway.

Get yourself some of these - I got some for Xmas and do 50-100 in the morning (before breakfast is best) and another 50-100 after work.

 

I would highly recommend! Decent results within a few weeks.

I reckon I could get to 100 in about 3 weeks.

I think a lot of that is to do with flash diets etc.

 

regular exercise and eating right is different i believe.

 

Yes you're right but Stu was talking earlier about losing something like a stone a month. If you lose weight too quickly your body goes into panic mode and tries to hang on to what fat you've got. Then when you start eating normally again, it hangs on to that fat too - just in case :)

 

Slowly and surely and lifestyle change is the key.

Having looked at myself in a mirror about 3 weeks ago and saw that I was in fact a lot bigger than I thought I was, I decided to go on a diet. 2 and 1/2 weeks later, i'm feeling a lot better and i'm a bit slimmer (didn't weigh myself when I started so not much point in starting now imo). I also have knee problems, which rules out serious exercise for at least a few more weeks (don't want to run the risk of doing it again and aggravating things), so this looks like the perfect thing for me to start on. Think i'm going to start on a push up/sit up regime sometime this week and compliment that with some swimming as my knee's not solid enough yet to run on for extended periods of time.

 

Thanks for the link S_S, and i'll get cracking now! :D

I know someone who lost 7 stone in 7 months and has kept it off.

 

My cousin lost 10 stone in just over a year and has kept it off.

 

Yes weight rebound happens in alot of cases, that's generally because people seem to think if they exercise for 3 months and lose the weight, once they get to their goal weight they can go back to eating/not exercising like they did before.

 

This obviously is complete b*llocks and as you state, when they do the body stores the food as fat and they end up putting on more weight than before.

 

HOWEVER, if it is a permanent lifestyle change then weight rebound won't occur.

That's the problem with computer games etc. Luckily my boys are both football mad so kicking them out to have a kick about is no problem.

 

It's not hard to keep your kids fit and healthy, just don't let them watch TV / Play on their computers during the day unless it's raining and don't feed them sh!t out the deep fryer.

Try snapping your ACL........

 

Indeed! I did that 14 years ago and was told "60% of people get by fine without it"!

 

A few months ago the knee twisted with weight through it and I've now been on crutches for 9 weeks with another to go until I actually see a knee specialist! :(

 

MRI and X-rays done. Confirmed bone in joint making it lock up. Day surgery to remove the bone and a decision to be made on the ligament reconstruction!

 

Meanwhile, with little exercise possible I'm on the calorie counting and losing weight steadily! Best exercise I've found is cycling! No impact on my knee and a good workout!

I've signed up to the Cancer Research 10k run around the Common in October, my aim is to lose a stone and a half - two stone by then and be a lot fitter.

 

However I have been doing the 100 push up challenge and cant get past the 42/43 mark but have been doing over 2 months now. You do get great definition on the shoulders, upper arms and upper chest I've found.

With all due respect mate, press-ups are for upper body strength, not gonna be much use for the 10k.

 

Mixing weights and cardio training in your fat burning zone will get the weight off, then move your target heartrate up to improve your cardio.

 

I am doing the Great South Run in October. :-(

Ha yeah I know, thats why I'm starting a regime of sorts from June.

 

Running on the Monday and Tuesday, football on the Weds and Thurs. Rest on Friday with the gym for weights on saturday. Getting in another rest on the sunday.

 

Cant run for toffee, thats why I'm begin training so early!

 

10k is my limit, at least the Great South Run is relatively flat compared to the Great North Run right?!

On the website linked there is also the 200 sit up challenge (which would probably be easier than 100 press ups!)

 

And also 200 squats.

Yeah Great South Run is pretty flat, one of the flattest courses.

 

I have put in the ballot for next years London Marathon too. lol :rolleyes:

I tore my acl over a year ago and had to take up a different form of excercise rather than football until it was sorted.

 

Hit the gym 5 times a week for the past 11 months... Mainly weight training with the odd bit of cardio. I didn't diet as such, just ate a bit more sensibly and limited the beer intake to once every fortnight.

 

I now weigh a stone less through a lower body fat percentage, but at the same time I have packed on alot of muscle.

 

Good luck with the op... Had mine 3 weeks ago. Counting down the days until I can return to the gym.
