Hello fellow forum users....

Expanding on from our boy GNR's thread.
Let's talk the talk in this thread.

Lets motivate each other to achieve our goals through discussions of fitness, GYM and workouts.

Not necessarily like the other thread where we discuss the past more so the future.

What workouts did you do today?
What are your goals?

Lets go boys and.... girl.
2020 is our year, lets make it happen.

Currently doing 6-7 days a week cardio. Can't do weights at the moment as waiting for my shoulder recon + bicep repair end of February.

HIIT training 3-4 times a week and low intensity cardio for the remaining days.

I'm hoping we can all contribute and just keep it alive to motivate each other, track progress, post workouts, etc.

Get us all on the right path, fighting the good fight.

Hows your diet and nutrition bra?
Got respect for any one that gets in the ring.
I'm a life long boxing fan.

Shift work is tough used to wreck me
Once motivated working out becomes so enjoyable.
Almost like therapy sounds so corny and cliche
Trying to better yourself is a primal simple pleasure of life

The fittest guy I ever met was 43 at the time
Ive always been motivated by him

I agree brah.
I tell everyone the same thing.

It's just you and the barbell.
Good release.

Its almost a break from all the other distractions in life.

Wives, girlfriends, workout, all that stuff.

Tough I'd imagine with a baby and having the energy once they're asleep to workout. You're getting some in that's the main thing.

I'm a life long boxing fan.

diet and nutrition could be a lot better...it was good leading up to my fight then once I had it I continued training for a while but diet slipped badly. Could never get it back. Shift work and commitments for the kids made excuses easy.

Looked in the mirror and was fairly unimpressed with what I saw. Missus had an anniversary reminder come up on her facebook and she mentioned "geez how fit were you!!" and that summed my slide up.

Now I'm back into training and trying to get my diet and nutrition sorted. Training is the easy part, it's the food I struggle with. Any and all advice is welcome from me.

Boxing is the best!!! One of my mates runs the Sydney Fight League and I'm now always at the fights.....one coming up at Paddington RSL and I can't wait!!!

Cheers man
Yeah so true.something is better than nothing.
I got really down on myself last year .started to let myself go and kinda accepted it
All it takes is a photo of oneself to light the fire (as vein as that sounds)
This thread is great love reading it ?

Man, shift worker here too.
Its a struggle but at least you're putting in the effort.

Diet is always the hard part hey.
I'm enjoying the intermittent fasting and keeping the meal clean as possible and noticing improvement.

My brother is a bodybuilder and did the stage posing stuff a few years back but he works long hours these days and has fallen off track but is back into harder than ever this year.

Today i said....i dont look at the numbers on the scales and just go off by how i look.

One of his trainers is a lady in her 40s who use to be on that 6am aerobics show... he said she says the same thing ?

I just wanna look good and feel good as i get older and I'm about this life.

Speaking of boxing just saw our boy George kombosos is 1 fight away from sealing a deal with Loma. Topix for another thread but massive for him but Loma is the best l ol.

I’m 53. Played league all my youth and built up due to years of weight training. Currently 95kgs - could lose 10kgs to be honest. Last thing I want or need is weights in a gym - been there!
I do hot flow yoga. Great cardio workout, great sweat, great for movement, strength, flexibility and balance. I try to get to 4 classes of high intensity a week. Thoroughly recommend it for those around my age. But it must be a challenging yoga studio, not just a yin class (Slow).
Also suffered unfortunate financial loss leading to a nasty divorce and subsequent mental health issues. Yoga helped a lot!
Of course what goes in my mouth is ultimately what determines my fitness. I’m remarried to my absolute lifetime love and we eat and drink well. Oh well - gotta live as well!!
