She looks high maintenance. Can she put on sweats and be out of the door in 5 minutes for hiking or something, or is it a caluculated game of what hiking outfit she needs to wear for IG pics that day?

LOL! Far from it, we are both quite happy in sweats 90% of the time.....also as we are surrounded by mountains where we live wind swept hiking is a regualr thing for us.

she has an Israeli look where are you from

The UK.

You look like a nice couple. Congrats

TY.  The food was superb!

hot yoga benefits for a bodybuilder from me

1. calories burned 400-500 per session
2. excessive sweating/water weight - makes me drink more water during the day
3. improves balance/flexibility
4. slows my mind down, its hot as hell in their 104 degrees so/i sleep awesome when i am done with it
5. done properly - its tons of stretching
6. very challenging for musclebound types
7. hot chics -
8. It has improved my bbing posing since i am more focused with my body & control
9. abs abs abs - most bbers dont train abs enough
10. accountability/place to be. keeps me out of trouble - i go in the evening typically 530pm class or 7pm class


if you do to decide to do it, give it a real chance. sign up for 2 weeks and go 5x a week, i would recommend a month and go 20-22 in 30 days.
 

i love hot yoga - shop around, also you will do a ton of laundry cuz you and your towels are drenched



We have been contempalting trying this after reading BPak article a while ago.

Normal yoga has worked wonders for me with injurys to my lower spine...

What about the argument that the little bit of extra rest also helps build muscle? That is when our body is actually building the muscle.

True, but without the training stimuli...

If I get into a routine and have regular naps, work permitting, I recover faster which will ultimately mean more improvements.

Nowadays my shoulders hurt so much and Iím so busy that I hit arms and calves once a week and then do push-ups one day.Thats it and I feel so much better less aches and pains.Also only thing I care about is arms and calves and chest,So if thatís all I want then no need to do more anyways.Spent 25 years hammering my body,time to ease up on joints so Iím not a cripple in 10 years.

(Back when I actually trained) I used to do a 6 day split, with Sunday off. Basically following the beginner's program of the Arnold Encyclopedia for Modern Bodybuilding. It's a good split if you have the time and can tweak things for your own body. Following the split exactly took me about 2 hours per workout but I tweaked it in later years to be around an hour or so.

I tried it when I was in my early 20's (was natty).  I ate 6x a day, but I burned out in less than 3 weeks.  If anyone follows the advanced workout routine in that book, you have to be on gear in order to recover.

Absolutely.  When I was in my 20's training 6 days/wk, I got home from work, ate dinner, took a 45 min nap, then I went to the gym... strength/energy in the gym was always much better after the nap.

Pretty much what I do, although I am considering splitting my sleep into two mini sleeps, going biphasic if you will...I tried it for a week a few months ago. 

18:00-21:00 Sleep

21:00-02:00 Wake

02:00-06:00 Sleep

I still get 7 hours sleep and the 21:00-02:00 window is insanely productive for me for some reason.  If I had a 24 hour gym this would be perfect & I'd probably be doing it right now, but as my gym closes at 22:00 it makes training hard work/rushed.

Daily, but I only do light weights and bands. It gets the juices flowing so to speak and minimizes joint pain.

I'm 51, 5'9", 210lbs and I have a similar routine.

Friday: Chest/Back
Sunday: Shoulders/Arms
Tuesday: Legs

The days off in between are essential. 

During off days I do 1 hour of fasted morning cardio, except Wednesday because my legs are like jello.

No different to training quads/hams in the same session IMO.

Push/Pull workouts are old school but work.

This hot yoga def sounds very beneficial. Except nr 7.
You think you and me could do some hot yoga sessions in the near future?
Somewhere private maybe?

Just kidding bro (I quess).
Thanks for the informative reply.
Good luck with the contest prep.

« Reply #74 on: October 04, 2017, 05:05:00 PM »

here's a question that never been asked before on getbig, for those of you who goes to the gym, how often do you train?  Cool

First off, I 'train' every time I go to the gym. It's getting there that is a problem for me. Too often, I talk myself out of going. At the end of the day, if I average my training frequency, I have to honestly confess it is probably between three and four times a week, although the plan I'm on calls for six days a week. Each gym visit is about 1 1/2 hours long. When I train at home, the sessions are considerably shorter, since I lack the equipment to do a lot of exercises.
