  2. Hi I'm 25yo, 91kg, 180ish cm tall. Lost about 30kgs over the last few years. but i still got a few more kg's (4-5 would be nice) of fat that i want to get rid of. I've been weight training quite a bit lately. usual stuff: deads, squats, cleans, press variations, row variations, pullups, etc. I'm pretty happy with my progress in that department with regard to strength gain. But I don't do much cardio at all apart from playing indoor soccer, and a bit of bball with mates. My diet is mostly clean with the occassional, controlled, light binge. Otherwise heaps of veggies, lean meats, some fruit, yoghurt, nuts, not much carb apart from morning oats, and i take protein powder. Heres the problem: I have an Epigastric Hernia, its a tear near the middle of my top 4 abs. It doesn't hurt, but I've got my operation for it today. It was caused from lifting, and probably from being obese before because the doc said i have a slightly larger gap between my abs.. presumably from stretch resulting in the weaker tissue in the area. Doc says I can't do any exercise for 8 weeks after the op. Week one i'm not too fussed because i've been lifting almost everyday for the last month cos i knew i'd be losing muscle so i'll let the body do its thing, after this i'm planning on doing alot of walking incl. 10km walk home from work a few times a week at least then look at increasing to jogging a bit as i start to heal up more. I'll be assessing my ability to lift light weights around the week 6 mark but nothing silly you know, just cosmetic work. Basically i need ideas on how to minimise muscle loss in the next 8 weeks, whilst making progress in the fat loss department, without doing weights. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
  3. Cardio, running, health.

    i play basketball with friends, we play for fun not to try to become pros. Its not a sports program, its just a game. I've got a punching bag i haven't used to vent on in ages cos i don't get that stressed cos i don't take everything that seriously. Its apparent to me that you, m&m, are very focused towards making every effort count towards generating the results you and your clients are after because thats your livelihood and your passion. To people like me its an aspect of lesser importance because i have other things i need to focus on, and subsequently, jogging becomes a reasonable compromise.
  4. Cardio, running, health.

    far out, ppl take things way too seriously these days. its a forum... discuss... i lift weights to get strong and to look good. I do all compound lifts: deads, squats, rows, presses, pullups. I also jog for basketball, soccer, getting to the train when i'm late, and to see the hot women running around the tan. I also do some mountain biking. Just cos i do something, i don't expect everyone to do it and enjoy it or even understand why i do it, I just tell em how i see it and let them figure the rest out. Stress less..
  5. Protein powders

    yeah i'll be hitting the ON stuff again after i get through the met drive, but seriously the med drive rocks for flavour and texture (chocloate all the way) I had some myopure sitting in some tubs for like a year and they seemed to get bugs in there somehow, so bulk storage would have to be pretty air tight. oh, and check out the curry dude on chapel st. he's pretty cheap when it comes to ON...
  6. Protein powders

    myopure stuff is good and cheap, no flavour, no b/s... shouldnt you try something first before buying 100kgs? i bought a lot of Metabolic drive from the states while the dollar was decent, split with mates. best tasting stuff i've ever tasted...
  7. Bra Boyz

    yeah wasn't fantastic as a doco, but still enjoyable. Can kinda relate it to my childhood for some reason.
  8. Jobs

    i'm a business analyst or mechanical engineer depending on the client...i solve problems...
  9. Re-Intro and questions

  11. Re-Intro and questions

  12. fitness first - "spotting"

    i was at the melbourne central ff with after work crowd, there was this one guy i was watching in the mirror cos i recognised him from uni. He put his towel on the squat rack and waited, then he saw a free incline bench so he dragged that over to the squat rack and put it infront of it facing the rack, then he got some dumbells, and waited, then he grabs another barbell and puts some weight on it. so now after about 15 mins he starts stretching.... 5 mins later he finally starts to lift. 1/2 squats with about 70kgs for 8 reps, then 8 deadlifts with about 80kg, then incline bench with about 25kg dumbells. then he drops the weight and runs to the other side of the gym to do pullups and dips, then comes back for the next set, then he's gone in 15mins leaving everything there. I pissed myself watching this guy, was soo tempted to steal some of his weights while he was doing his dips. but it also pissed me off that this guy hogs all this equipment during peak hour. such a tool some of the trainers are definitely whacked out, the weird sht they make their clients do on a bosu ball is just fkd up...
  13. 170kg atg raw squat

    awesome. I always worry when i see big squat videos ever since i saw the one where the guy snaps his leg cos his leg started wobbling... yours looked good though. two thumbs up
  14. Few questions, I'm a bit of a noob.... whats SLDL?? Why shrugs with soo much deadlifting? What are breathing squats? Why no rows? Why no good mornings (or does no one do these anymore)?? I'm no expert, but everything else looks good to me.... big load, big compound lifts I'd consider throwing in a calf exercise aswell, but thats just me...
  15. S14 Coilovers

    my bad, URAS is right.....
  16. S14 Coilovers

    on the rears, the r33 and r34 (not GTR) will fit.
  17. S13 circuit setup.

    START WITH TYRES........ Upgrade brakes choose suspension setup according to tyres. Modify engine to suit tractive limit of tyres. Everything should be built to ensure maximum tractvie limit of tyres is being utilised at all times.
  18. Worth it!

    define better to work on............ easier?? cheap powa?? looks?? handling?? figure out what you want man.
  19. Dynamat

  20. RDA rotors for a S14a

    Ace brakes.... i got quoted $185 for pair front for my car.
  21. suspension bits installation

    Castor isn't really effected by vertical suspension travel.....(depending on geometry) I don't think it will make a difference....
  22. RDA rotors for a S14a

    call around, they are usually pretty cheap. I'll be going ofr RDA over DBA purely for cost. the slots go all the way to the edge aswell unlike some dba....
  23. Boost is cuttin out.

    fuel reg maybe.
  24. stock turbo + cams

    there is nothing wrong with running cams with a stock turbo. depends how much its costing you and what you've already done to the car....
