Well, yeah, you took one short, glib post out of a jokey exchange with someone I actually know (a bit) in real life, I can see why it didn't - but as Steev confirmed, it was pretty clear to the person who I was actually talking to.

No problem anyway, but next time if you're not sure you could try asking before chucking the insults around. Words on a page can be pretty hard to read intent in.

Back to the thread point, we've slacked off the gym the last week - finding time to go's getting harder as the term draws to a close. Aiming to catch up this week, though. Our gym seems to be a mix of "normal" people who are clearly just interested in getting fitter and the show-off preening types, and the two keep out of each other's way.

It could also have to do with the massive pies I eat when I get back home.

Both those programmes are interesting, they explore why exercise seems to work better for some than others and the reasons why some people become obese. Yes, it's always down to eating more calories than you burn but there are complexities beyond that and not just "water retention" or people having "slow metabolisms"

Robit - I've found some of those Penn and Teller things quite funny but they seem to boil down to a fat, obnoxious guy being smug and reductionist, like a more entertaining but even more didactic Richard Dawkins.

Well if reductionism is your bugbear in that episode they're actually being a hell of a lot more specific and subtle than the fat = bad industry and its followers.

Gym I go to is like this.

I've been once in 3 months. Work/childcare commitments get in the way of the gymming. I've started to put some back on, so need to do something about that

Post Re: Losing Weight
I was at my gym earlier, only did 40 min cardio but half an hour biceps and 20 min abs. I'm pretty sure I got the times wrong but I was taking the advice of a gym-rat at work who reckons I need to beef up as I'm now too skinny.

Call it a comfort zone thing, but I prefer my usual workouts with the massive amounts of cardio. I'm never gonna get über-ripped at my age anyway.

My arms and chest are fairly good at the minute, and my belly/love handles are shrinking slowly but surely, but that area on my sides, below the armpits is a fucking pain. Not much you can do about it other than overall weight loss I imagine.

Same story as my flabby back.

You can't target these areas - only hard cardio will shift it, especially if it's the area of your body you're genetically disposed to store fat in.

It's what you eat rather than what you do. The weights for example sculpt the body but. Where as what you eat is where the biggest changes happen. You can have the best training regime in the world but if you don't fuel yourself correctly then it's all for nothing.

You're probably quite healthy if you go the gym often, being overweight or fat doesn't necessarily mean you're unhealthy if you're excerising often. Shape of the body is controlled by the food.

I'd say you probably just need confidence boost rather than eating phallic shaped objects.

Again, 40 minutes cardio today before 50 minutes on weights - shoulders and legs.

I upped the weight, lifting heavier than before. Felt good. Squats, deadlifts, glute bridges, all good stuff.

Termy losing his house was one of the forum highlights of the year for me.
