The Metaltabs Fitness Thread

alright, since i know a lot of us here go to a gym, lets make a thread where we can discuss what we listen to at the gym, why we go to the gym, goals, status, etc.

i started going to the gym after i had spine surgery and have been going for a year now, but i recently stepped it up at the gym. i do 48 minutes of an exercise bike (500 calories, 11 miles) 5 days a week and then on mon/wed/fri i lift weights. since there isnt much to the cardio i usually dont need any kind of music or inspiration, i just hop on and go. however, i have a special playlist that i lift weights to. ill post it later

also, as a part of fitness in general, ive started to eat very healthily. the only thing i eat that i probaly shouldnt is too many carbs, but i try to keep that under control and they turn into energy anyways

what kind of exercise does everyone else do? do you prefer free weights or machines? also, ive noticed towards the end of my daily bikeride my vision starts to get kind of odd, almost blurry or unfocused. is this normal?

I work out at home every second day. For the most, I use my bench and I also do lots of different weight lifting exercises, as well as sit ups. I usually just work out my arms and upper body, but sometimes I use an exercise bike too. I totally work out around an hour every time. My playlist while doing so changes all the time, but hate eternal seems good to work out too, it makes me agressive And sam: I`ve never had that kind of blurry visions you are talking about, but I have heard about it before and it`s normal I think, but it might be that you are working out to hard though.

That's not normal.

I tell you, Anata is great to lift weights to I say.

But I do prefer cardio to most other shit. I walk about 4-5 hours a day, thats too and from school, through town, into the mall and at work and school.

But I'm not a real exercise fanatic though, I used to be, but my scedule is just too big, and these days, if I had the time I prolly wouldn't anyway. However to keep weight off, I do some very unhealthy shit that I wouldn't reccomend to anyone. I'll explain if requested but I already know you'll all just go "You are soooo stupid!".

But as I said I used to be a full fitness guy. Best bands to workout are White Zombie, Anata, old Sepultura I say.

Yay, I spy another fitness thread. As it happens, I'm doing my Masters in Exercise Science. I have an gym in my house (a real one with equipment not a fucking Bowflex Gaymaster Fuckwad 4000 or similar) and two other gym memberships. I have been to the gym four times in the last three days. Today I did a bench workout with a boxer who I hope to get to the 2008 Olympics. I design workout programs, diets and regimes for slobs, fit people and top class athletes. If you want to know anything I guess I could, uh, tell you.

I run medium distances like 6-10 km 3-4 times a week and after every run I do some workout like situps and shit but we have a gym at home so I'm going to start using it.

I haven't been able to do anything for two weeks because of some infection.

I lift weights, box, do some sit ups and do some foot excersizes about 3-4 times a week. I just started it last month I think and I can already see a lot of difference on me I hate running so I don't do a lot of that. Sometimes of you're really having fun playing guitar that can be like exercising if you jump around and act like a fool

I've also started trying to eat healthier food, althoug that ain't going that well, but something thoug. I don't eat near as much candy as I use to.

ohh, I forgot to say what music I like listening to while working out.
I think some glam rock or rock stuff is kind of neat because It's easy to sing along with like Kiss, GnR, Twisted Sister, system of a down and something.
Pantera are awsome for working out, expecially while boxing.
And I actually like listining to some techno sometimes while working out. Really pumps you up and stuff

I occasionally lift some weights and stuff.
But after taking gym class I really don't care that much.

Thanks Sam!

Yeah one to John Holland:

I was doing squats the other day, 3 sets, 10 reps, 160, 170, and 180 pounds for the three sets. I did the first and second fine, but when I got to the third, I got about 6 reps in, and my fucking head started to pound, I mean like an awful, painful headache. I took an aspirin, and it took a few hours to go away.

Needless to say I do squat thrusts with dumbbells instead for that muscle group, but I actually feel more comfortable doing squats with an olympic bar instead (albeit the powerful headaches).

Has anyone ever experienced this, with any exercise (namely for legs) ?

I use the machines and not the free weights cause they'd hurt too much if I dropped the bar or something. Machines are just safer. I do the 21s for curls: basically 7 reps from low to midway, then 7 reps from the midway to the chest, then 7 full curls. If you do them very fast, there's no need for caring about "ooooo, I do 80lbs instead of 60lbs."
I also runs sometimes, but I suck at that. So I just stick to the weightlifting mostly.

not any pounding headaches or anything, but at work i constantly run up these stairs and skip 2 or 3 steps each time, after I get up them I get this wierd feeling in my head about 50% of the time, like wierd pumping blood feeling, like im about to get a headache. It sucks.

But about working out, I try to run around 3 times a week, I run about 1-2 miles each time. Ill listen to CoB, Pantera, Arch Enemy, most of the old stuff i still have on my minidiscs, and i lost the software to put my most recent musical tastes on minidisc.

Ill do situp's and pushups and lift these wieghts i have once in a blue moon when.

But i am getting chubby, and i need to not eat out every damn day and I need to find motivation to work out.

You guys with your headaches worry me. watch the asprin, too, because that's just masking your aches and pains. I can bend over to pick up a slipper and feel something in my back go and I'll have a head ache in a matter of hours. The doc gave me neck and back exercises to do that are for strength and flexibility.
I had a rare pounding headache that effected my eyes over the weekend and it lasted about 3 days, but I had my normal headache (that goes down my back) on top of that. It was awful.
See if there's any spots on your actual spine that are tender to the touch when you get them. I have them in my neck and on the spine just a few inches below my shoulderblades when I get my common ones.

my kind of exercise!!

A friend of mine is a body-builder, I'm planning on joining him during his workout two times a week because I've been going to the local gym and it bores the shit outta me. I get the fatigue (sp?) too after going on for a bit too long. I don't drink and eat enough before going, which is a problem. I don't like to eat before working out, my stomach just doesn't like it.

I gained about 15kg's last year since I started doing some working out, which was pretty weird. but I do feel a whole lot healthier and I have way better stamina then a year ago. In the weekends I push 100/150 kg wheeled containers into trucks, it really helped getting my upper arms into shape too. (54 containers in one truck, haha, about ten trucks a day) My lower arms are still shit though! I need to work on my lower arms because they're a pain in the ass. my arms allways hurt after working 10 hours straight.

I used to cycle 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. but now I just don't have the time for that anymore.. so I need to work out to keep some shape, haha.

I never got that sort of pain doing squat-lifts ... how are you breathing? Make sure you're breathing from your stomach, and with your mouth. If you're holding your breath constantly, that could be it.
