Internet tough guy



I'm going to start doing some at home exercise. Nothing real serious just some push-ups, sit-ups, and some dumbbells. I heard doing these exercises every morning and night is a good way to gain the muscle. Now I actually have some natural muscle, I haven't worked out for like...2 years. Sad, I know. But I've never really thought I had to.Now I don't have any equipment (not that I could afford it anyways) and I don't have the best eating habits, but i don't eat candy and chips all day long. I'll have a salad every few days, but I'm going to go cold turkey on soda. I weight 120 right now, and i'm about 5'6-5'7. I swear to god I have not gained more than 5 pounds in the last year, it's actually really weird. So if you have any tips, or any more info you think would help me. Please feel free to drop a comment and I would be glad to read through them. Thanks ya, wish me luck ;)

  1. Excellent to hear about this! Check out Combat Conditioning by Matt Furey.. He goes into great detail about a variety of body-weight exercises that will help you get into shape very fast!

    Also, if you can, check out P90X. I hear many great things and am planning on trying it myself.

    But be careful: you don't want to burn yourself out doing two-a-days right from the get-go. Easing into a routine is definitely a better way of starting. Remember, consistency is key.

  5. 5'7" 150lbs here. Gaining muscle from home is always hard, so you'll have to be serious about it. 120lbs sounds a little light, i don't think you'll have to worry about cutting soda and stuff out of your diet, but then again it is aways good to eat well. Make sure you're eating enough to gain muscle mass, though.

  7. Don't forget to stretch also. I made the mistake of just lifting weights onetime without warming up or anything first, the next day I was sore as shit.

  12. All you have to do is like 100 push up and sit up a day, until you can do it without a break. Then do 200 a day, so on and so forth. That's what I do

  19. We have the exact opposite problems... I'm 6'3, 230, and can't DROP weight easilly! Gaining muscle and weight has never been an issue for me (I'm in great shape now, just a little extra around the middle), and no matter how much cardio/running/cycling I do, it WON'T LEAVE!!

    Haha, P90x totally works, give it a shot!

  20. I HATE P90x, it's crazy (but it still works!)

    Burnout sessions are great, oomph they hurt.
