1  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Positive Bodybuilding Discussion & Talk / Re: Heart rate?! on: May 11, 2013, 10:45:55 PM

Mine usually falls between 80-95 bpm.
If you're concerned, have a doctor check you out. I wouldn't get too worried, though. Some people just have naturally higher pulse rates despite being healthy.

Yeah my heartrate has always been high, last time i was at doc's he said i was in good health...I kinda got concerned because of a recent article on sudden death due to high RHR
2  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Positive Bodybuilding Discussion & Talk / Heart rate?! on: May 11, 2013, 03:20:15 PM
28, 6'0" 170lb, small gut but other than that in ok shape

my RHR is 100!! and according to charts 80+ is the worst?

I quit drinking soda and generally eat ok (possibly could eat more greens).

Exercise about 2-3 times a way, either running or jumprope...but i can only run about 1/4 mile before I run out of breath (heart rate goes up fast)

I do live pretty stressful life with work/school and do drink coffee

I'm surprised my RHR is so high, simple tips to raise RHR and how frequently should i do cardio/how many minutes at a time?

Wanted to drop an update.

I had my deviated septum surgery about 1.5months ago and have been working out regularly for 2 weeks now. I think there is improvement, I can breathe better while running.

At one point I got up to 175lb before I started working out again post op.

A small update.

Have not been consistent with workouts yet. I've only been doing light workouts 1-2 times a week.

Once I get settled in this new job and moving situation figured out I will know which gym to signup to. However I got freeweights at home and bought a bench today to keep up the workouts.

scheduled surgery for deviated septim

p.s. just had a killer workout with the new bench, this thing is useful for sure

Have you consulted an Ear, Nose, and Throat about your frequent respiratory infections?...I had a deviated septum...When they fixed my deviated septum and took my tonsils out that stopped my colds/flu like turning off a switch!

So i got back from ENT and indeed I have a deviate septum, my tonsils look good tho...so i'll get that fixed and hopefully will make several problems go away

So far 1 week of consistent workouts, gotta keep it up.

Also got an ENT appointment next week.

Thanks for reminding me, I was meaning to do that...I have tonsillitis and need to talk to the docs if anything can be done about it

Raymondo: Def good points and def true about being consistent. I do have workouts broken down to core areas (chest, shoulders, triceps)(Back, biceps)(legs) thanks for website will get some tips there too.

W8M8: Good point about jogging, someone mentioned that to me before...I think I will switch to something involves pedaling or eliptical and has less impact on the back. In summer I plan on swimming at the public pool.

gona find an ENT doc and schedule that asap

Hi, I am 30 and feeling weak physically/mentally and I need some help (will focus on physically). I need help getting stronger and hopefully not injuring my self, I am not a very healthy person and have several health issues.

Age: 30
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 165lb
Body type: beergut+skinnyarms

Preexisting health conditions/problems:
1. Ex-smoker; I have been smoking for ~15years...now quit and recovering 10months smoke free
2. Bad cardio health; my heart rate goes up really fast and I run out of breath quickly
3. Bad Immune system; I get sick very easily (typically get several colds/flu's each year)
4. Sitting alot; I sit at the computer all day at work, sit in traffic and sit at home
5. Bad back; I have lower back problems, it gets strained easily and I get bed bound for months at a time (typically if i workout too much)
6. Diet can use an improvement

Goals:
Getting stronger (get that feeling of a man, not feeling weak)
Staying smoke free; keeping it up
Improving Cardio health; doing cardio before workouts
Improving immune system; perhaps with diet and supplements
Balance off sitting around; perhaps taking few minutes to walk around and stretch
Taking it easy on the back and try not to injure my self
Improving ditet; cut off sugar stuff and fried food, eat more veggies

I am joining a gym and going on a 3working days/week program and also will try to jog when I can (typically will be weekends)
I also want to quit drinking alcohol and sweet drinks

Tips on starting off will be great, I will most likely use this thread as a journal, thanks!





9  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Positive Bodybuilding Discussion & Talk / Help me gain muscle on: March 18, 2011, 03:55:27 PM
Hey guys need some help gaining muscle. I have always been a hard gainer, I'm 6' tall and was 135lb in highschool...I was doing gaining mass program by Anthoni Ellis after HS for about a year and gained some muscle/weight...then I stopped the program

I've been back on the program for 3weeks and not noticing gains.
I am at 160 and cant seem to gain past that (my top was 165 years ago). I am eating tons, 4-5meals a day ~2500-3000 calories total, plenty of protein
My meals might not be entirely healthy, not self cooked fresh stuff.
Workout breakup is 3days, split areas for 7day rest for muscle groups.

I am thinking maybe I am losing fat and actually em gaining mass...anyway, let me know what I can do to speedup mass gain that is not too intense (busy work schedule)

p.s. also I feel very fatigued after workout, granted I used to smoke for years and about 3weeks quit..guess I need to be more patient.

Thanks for tips in advance!

11  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Gaining weight without gym/freeweights? on: September 25, 2008, 05:28:59 PM
I know what ppl will say, so don't tell me to forget about it and go to the gym...I've been on a program for a while and under circumstances  I was forced to cancel my gym membership and dont own/cant afford/no space for freeweights

So I need a full body building program for training w/o freeweights...It must be possible, maybe not best results but better than sitting on my ass all day
1 legged squads
pushing against the wall calf raisers
handstand pushups (cant do those yet but will eventually leaning against the wall)
etc...
I can probbly do pullups with a rope around an ibeam in the basement

any small or big suggestions will help, thx in advance
12  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Injury and Rehabilitation / Chronic lower back pain? how to live/workout around it? on: August 16, 2008, 09:52:06 PM
Few years back I was moving some furniture and strained my back(at least that's what my doc told me) I was with pretty bad back pains for months. Ever since then I had recurring lower back pains, on and off. I will admit that for a couple years after that I spent alot of time sitting around during school/work and not doing much exercise.
Went again to the doctor and she told me I have chronic lower back pain, but I don't know...she didn't do too much checking...

Usually there is not pain from just doing normal tasks, but if i sit for a while my back become stiff.
The pain comes when I try to do a hamstring stretch(try to touch my toes) or try to bend over with straight legs, I get shooting pain my lower back and kind of on the sides of pelvis/ tailbone...just while I stretch
However, sometimes it gets worse for couple days and I would have difficulty sitting down or walking...it would be painful

I started going to the gym in past 6months, and my back has been better and worse. I was able to do most workouts fine, and started doing squats/deadlifts with light weight in past month (I tried to do as much of a proper form as I learned from videos/reading)
I was doing squats couple days ago and my pain got pretty bad a day after, I couldn't sleep, and only found relief while laying on back or stomach with legs flat.
Now its better but something concerns me, while sitting down I get sudden shooting pains going down my left leg and groin area...I've been trying to self diagnose it but not sure, I think I got a nerve pinched or maybe dislodged disc?

Anyway, any1 has any idea what exactly it is and how can i possible cure it? is it curable?
Biggest problem I got is that I cant do my leg workout routines when it gets bad, nor I can do bent over rows...I end up doing one handed once with knee on the bench, but my back was still hurting a little.
