DisposableSavior: Benevolent Misanthrope: On the one hand, I feel for the guy.  It's fashionable to say thing like that, to convince yourself that you can achieve your dreams, body-wise.  On the other, Jesus, what a farking idiot.  Learn the difference between sore and pain, between working out weakness and overtraining.  And for Fark's sake, don't take drugs that can eat away at your organs.

I do wish, though, that I could get myself addicted to cardio.  Or at least to where it's not a godawful "Holy FARK am I DONE yet???" experience.

I read ebooks or browse fark when I'm on a cardio machine at the gym. Keeps my mind distracted, though sometimes I have to take a break because I laugh too hard. Ymmv


We have an elliptical and a treadmill in the house. Between The Daily Show, Colbert Report, and the Netflix Queue, there's about ten hours a week of Idiot Box to watch.

There is a large screen TV and HTPC bolted to the wall in front of the elliptical and treadmill.

I only wish I had the endurance to watch it all.

I listen to podcasts and read e-books when I'm on the stationary bike. I still glance at the clock every 23 seconds or so. :/

Regarding getting "addicted to cardio"... Why cardio specifically? I'm assuming you're meaning just wasting half an hour on a treadmill or elliptical or something like that which I agree is boring.

Do some powerlifting instead. Squats and deadlifts are huge for vo2 max gains. And it's fun to lift heavy stuff.

If you aren't familiar with those lifts, get a trainer for a few sessions to teach the basics (or if there is a _good_ box in your area even look into Crossfit for a month or two - that'll definitely get you training to feel a runner's high plus the camaraderie tends to help you come back, and show you how to do all the major compound movements)

But as far as lifting goes look up starting strength, and cube method as simple ways to get started on a program that you don't hate going into the gym to do.

I'm a former competition power lifter and a classic endomorph. I build muscle fast, but hold onto fat like a polar bear. I like the lifting part of my gym time, but I absolutely hate anything that involves cardio endurance. Believe me, I have tried everything to make cardio enjoyable. Walking, jogging, rowing, indoor, outdoor, kettlebells, biking (stationary and real), even German Volume Training... It sucks. I'd rather lift heavy stuff, and I've never been able to lose fat doing that. Mostly because if I eat low enough calories to lose fat, it takes muscle with it and I feel like crap.


What about diet then?
Not just calories but your macros in general?

Try maybe going to a bodybuilder style diet? Fasted workouts, no carbs until in recovery mode for the day... Basically meal timing plus just going for body recomposition on macros.

I will confess, other than limiting my carbs, I know nothing of BB nutrition. I only have anecdotal evidence - keep my heart rate at 60-70% max for at least 30 but preferably 60-90 minutes a day, with no more than 30 of that spent lifting, plus limit carbs to 10% caloric intake or less, and I will lose. It's the only thing that has consistently worked for me - but eventually I freak out over a bag of Oreos during my quarterly week off training, and it all goes to hell from there.

Add in the fact that the female bodybuilders are so flush with testosterone that they need implants in order to have books. These usually look like they glued grapefruits to their chests. Add in that the testosterone gives a certain other part of their anatomy a very "masculine" appearance, and you've got a recipe for "OH GOD PLEASE PUT YOUR CLOTHES BACK ON!"

So running a 5K or 10K and training it to run it faster than the slobs in your age group gives you no satisfaction?  I find running and lifting are similar in that they give you very exact measurables on how well or crappy you are doing.  I like that and it motivates me.  However, you can't be a true powerlifter and a great runner because you will be too heavy and you can't be a great runner and be a true powerlifter because you'll run so much you'll eat the muscle away.

Would you believe I never learned how? Even as a child. I tried it as an adult, though, and could never get the rope going at any speed - I tripped over it after 5-6 slow jumps, and I never figured out how to do it faster.

Yeah, I know, I suck.

Building muscle and burning fat tend to work at cross-purposes. My body is just more comfortable lifting than running. But I still make the effort, because it's not good to be this fat.

Might be something to look into, just treat it as part of your training.

And don't freak out :-) just whatever you do, follow an 80/20 rule and for the 20 try not to overdo it.

Personally, I generally follow a paleo diet and keep the fruits away from workouts (fasted or protein/fat pre workout, veggie and root carbs post workout). It leans me up fast but I do tend towards a lean build to begin with.

If I'm trying to bulk for a training cycle, I'll start eating more like a powerlifter and start having the chocolate milk after and bananas before, etc.

I only mention it because a friend of mine who knows a lot more about this has biatched me out about my diet during a training cycle with him because he said I eat like a dieting bb.

I like the lifting part of my gym time, but I absolutely hate anything that involves cardio endurance. Believe me, I have tried everything to make cardio enjoyable. Walking, jogging, rowing, indoor, outdoor, kettlebells, biking (stationary and real), even German Volume Training... It sucks. I'd rather lift heavy stuff, and I've never been able to lose fat doing that. Mostly because if I eat low enough calories to lose fat, it takes muscle with it and I feel like crap.

So running a 5K or 10K and training it to run it faster than the slobs in your age group gives you no satisfaction?  I find running and lifting are similar in that they give you very exact measurables on how well or crappy you are doing.  I like that and it motivates me.  However, you can't be a true powerlifter and a great runner because you will be too heavy and you can't be a great runner and be a true powerlifter because you'll run so much you'll eat the muscle away.


Oh - and the winning, I would like. It's the training runs I hate.

Caeldan: Benevolent Misanthrope: Caeldan: Benevolent Misanthrope: Caeldan: Benevolent Misanthrope: On the one hand, I feel for the guy.  It's fashionable to say thing like that, to convince yourself that you can achieve your dreams, body-wise.  On the other, Jesus, what a farking idiot.  Learn the difference between sore and pain, between working out weakness and overtraining.  And for Fark's sake, don't take drugs that can eat away at your organs.

I do wish, though, that I could get myself addicted to cardio.  Or at least to where it's not a godawful "Holy FARK am I DONE yet???" experience.

Regarding getting "addicted to cardio"... Why cardio specifically? I'm assuming you're meaning just wasting half an hour on a treadmill or elliptical or something like that which I agree is boring.

Do some powerlifting instead. Squats and deadlifts are huge for vo2 max gains. And it's fun to lift heavy stuff.

If you aren't familiar with those lifts, get a trainer for a few sessions to teach the basics (or if there is a _good_ box in your area even look into Crossfit for a month or two - that'll definitely get you training to feel a runner's high plus the camaraderie tends to help you come back, and show you how to do all the major compound movements)

What about diet then?
Not just calories but your macros in general?

Try maybe going to a bodybuilder style diet? Fasted workouts, no carbs until in recovery mode for the day... Basically meal timing plus just going for body recomposition on macros.

I will confess, other than limiting my carbs, I know nothing of BB nutrition. I only have anecdotal evidence - keep my heart rate at 60-70% max for at least 30 but preferably 60-90 minutes a day, with no more than 30 of that spent lifting, plus limit carbs to 10% caloric intake or less, and I will lose. It's the only thing that has consistently worked for me - but eventually I freak out over a bag of Oreos during my quarterly week off training, and it all goes to hell from there.

Might be something to look into, just treat it as part of your training.

And don't freak out :-) just whatever you do, follow an 80/20 rule and for the 20 try not to overdo it.

Personally, I generally follow a paleo diet and keep the fruits away from workouts (fasted or protein/fat pre workout, veggie and root carbs post workout). It leans me up fast but I do tend towards a lean build to begin with.

If I'm trying to bulk for a training cycle, I'll start eating more like a powerlifter and start having the chocolate milk after and bananas before, etc.

I only mention it because a friend of mine who knows a lot more about this has biatched me out about my diet during a training cycle with him because he said I eat like a dieting bb.


Yeah, I should start acting more like a bodybuilder than a power lifter. Old habits die hard.

I hate training runs too :-)
Did several of those 5k+ obstacle runs (ie warrior dash) last summer though without once training running directly though. Mostly was doing cube method as training, maybe a couple days a week in a Crossfit gym for the metcons.

You could see if you could borrow a neighbor's large dog and take them for a run in the park.  They're so happy it makes it quite enjoyable.  Though I'm already fond of running when I can.

Gotta lift his weight
Now that he's all boxed
And dead

I read ebooks or browse fark when I'm on a cardio machine at the gym. Keeps my mind distracted, though sometimes I have to take a break because I laugh too hard. Ymmv

I quit "cardio" for walking with a bit of sprinting thrown in. Lost 40lbs and am in the best shape of my life, or at least post high school life. It works.

I ride my bike to the gym (about 2.6 miles) and most places around town, but the first and last things I do at the gym is hit the Arc Trainer. I've lost 32 lbs in 69 days.

Peter Dinklage disagrees with you.

But the moron in the article clearly had some kind of mental illness if he actually said out loud that he was invincible, and ignored having 2 heart attacks and 3 strokes.  That's more than just being stubborn.
