Alright, saw the youtube clip, I'll try it today at the gym. May not have enough room though, hopefully I will!

Right after I have done the bulk of my assessments for contract law and theoretical criminology I promise to review my workout plan - read all those articles and methodically train in the future. But as for now, I'm lucky to do a few sly dumbbell curls and run on the treadmill in the midst of studying + work, I have to keep my mind set on priority 1 which is uni, 2nd is gym and 3rd is work, 4th is free time which I don't have much of anymore now that holidays are over. Appreciate the time and effort + assistance you have all given me though, I will never forget it.

EDIT: read briefly one of the links and it was saying you can eat cheeseburgers and hamburgers everyday haha, wow, obviously you guys are only referring the method of training RE: sets, reps, types of exercises etc. but I thought it was pretty funny, clean bulk is the way to go, paleo + working out = good results.

I was talking to a body sculptor and this was her recommendations - only work each muscle per week because if you don't rest it doesn't grow as before I never rested, also the new transition of taking protein shakes should help me a bit because I never have been on them before - religiously anyway.

Surely what I am doing is correct? Working each muscle each week? :( sigh

I want to get vanity muscles for now as I won't be doing proper training for a few months, then when I'm on proper training I will probably give up on all the weights anyway and stick to the pushups, chinups, situps and buy a set of dumb bells to maintain some of my muscle.

Forgot to put squats in there! Legs will only be worked once a week as they're so painful to do, but when I am running/cycling that works my legs anyway so that's why I haven't placed much emphasis on those exercises. When I run I also jump in the air when I am resting from sprints, so yea legs are always working overtime.

Yo G!, What's your goal with this workout routine? Looks "all show and no go"?

Basically, I am on contract at the gym I am for another 9 months and my old man is paying for it, so what I want to do is in that time is to get as much muscle and fitness as possible and once my contract wears off I will start kick boxing full time - in place of what gym work was. I am now only going to be doing kickboxing once a week (if that), and I know this isn't really training and won't learn much but I am hoping next year I may get into the ring like my brother does, that would be an achievement to hang up my sleeve. Then I can turn to fat after that I wouldn't care, lol joke.

Well, touch wood - caught the flu and was inactive for about a week, during which time I learned the importance of rest. I have stripped most of the fat content and so sprinting everyday isn't something I need to do.

New routine:

Day 1:

Shoulders and triceps + protein shake mixed with raw egg

Day 2:

Running/jogging or biking + abs

Day 3:

Biceps and chest + protein shake mixed with raw egg

Day 4:

Running/jogging or biking + abs

Day 5:

Chest and back + protein shake mixed with raw egg

Day 6:

Running/jogging or biking + abs

Day 7:

Nothing/nada/zip/nil - aka day off.

EDIT: This is obviously a base for my training days, I have part time work and uni full time to attend to as well, so obviously this will not be followed 100 percent, 100 percent of the time. But, it is a general point where my training is, and + the irony is if I say it won't be followed 100 percent of the time, it will be, but if I left it out I would of found more obstacles - murphys law, get it?  ;)

The first few kilos to lose is easy, it's when you want that tight definition that last 2 or 3 kilos, very hard work. I was 66kilogram for like 2 weeks, now 65kg, that's everyday sprinting, no rest day at all, and eating relatively healthy. I have not had a rest day for about 6 weeks and I'm still going hard - although I have blisters all on my feet from running :(

+ I try and stay away from the scales 99percent of the time, my weight and how I look are 2 different things.

I am so with you LoneWolf, I used to wear size 34 pants, they were a bit loose, now I'm on size 32 which are now a bit loose, I have had to throw away many jeans and shorts and I only have a little bit of cash now though.

That sounds pretty good man, very creative, although I generally stick to the treadmills (intense sprints) I might make 2 days of the week x country up my mountain just to mix it up a little, it can get boring behind a treadmill all the time and it feels like you are going nowhere. So, with tossing rocks up a hill, can that not roll back down or cause a rock slide haha! Maybe down hill or to the side hill would be safer, until another person is using the tracks and I'm tied up in civil litigation or worse criminal prosecution. The holding the rock thing sounds good until I see another passer by who thinks I'm going to crush their skull with it.

But on the flipside not many people are on the track, most people prefer jogging on the road up there, but I think that's far more dangerous considering there is no pathway for pedestrians and it has lots of turns like a donut track going up + sometimes we get people drag racing there cars down the hill which is why I never ride my bike up the road anymore.

Okay so basically,

Eggs for breakfast - with legumes, which are non paleo, or an apple and coffee (non paleo)

Lunch usually consists of heaps of turkey 150 grams give or take

salads: baby spinach
          avacado (sometimes)

condiments (non paleo): perry sauce super hot chilli sauce, hottest stuff you can buy at the shops that I know of, burns my mouth, clears the sinuses and burns for like half an hour.

drinks: water or orange crush cordial (non paleo) -however diluted so much its 80 percent water anyway.

Between meals: Nut mix, brazil nuts, almonds, macadamias, pine nuts, walnuts with pumpkin seeds, and saltanas which are non paleo I think.

Also I eat, apple, bannanas, strawberries, blueberries, rasberries, and grapes between meals usually with some lite vanilla yogurt which is non paleo.

Obviously I stray away from some of these foods every now and then, but I try to adhere to this, and some days I have a piece of bread (non paleo) with my lunch.  

I had some choc chip cookies the other day, usually I eat macadamia nut cookies (healthier alternative) and the choc chip cookies made me sick, won't be having them again.

Well, I've been at the gym everyday for about a month now and not even close to burning out, it's like whoever said over doing the gym means you won't sustain it long was some fat lazy fool.

I have to give credit to Wldfg who has now transitioned my motivation at the gym to now thirst for that pain and suffering, this morning it was pouring heavily in my area, flash floods (terrential rain) I then went for a jog up my mountain, couldn't see in front of me because the heavy rain was splashing in my eyes, every second I had to wipe my face, coming up there were mudslides, rockslides, mini rivers, had my shins covered in mud and dirty water but I loved every minute of it then later that night I went to the gym, I keep doing my sprinting sessions everyday until I'm close to puking. I had my head over the sinks between breaks haha, it's great fun though I just keep pushing myself harder and harder everyday, I want to seriously just break and push limits which are unbreakable, know what I mean?

As you can tell, I have laid off the serious weight training I only do a little bit of curls, dips, chinups, pushups to maintain my muscle mass (if any that I have) - maybe once I have cut down fully I might bulk up later, but I don't like being fat, I rather be lean with not much muscle, than having muscle and no visible abs.

I hope its pouring down again tomorrow I am so up for round 2 with that treacherous mountain   ;D - Talking about all this is making me pumped and I'm about to sleep, haha.

Stress and anger are typically not synonymous. You can be stressed AND angry at the same time, but in general that is not the case for me.

Good point, though when you mentioned "punching the wall" - I immediately assumed you were talking about anger related stress, which can be a problem for many, when I am stressed I usually am angry I rarely ever tuck my tail between my legs and wallow in self pity. Anyway the point was for people like me who get angry when stressed, try to exercise, punch a bag, listen to some music, lie down (granted you did not know this already), I am merely justifying my aforementioned post.

When I am stressed I never eat, which can be annoying I like to graze throughout the day. Now with college starting up again, I believe it's going to be more difficult.

You need to learn some healthy (or even unhealthy) ways to releave stress: go for a walk, do some pushups, take a bath, go for a drive, have sex, etc (unhealthy: punch a wall, smoke a cigarette, yell, etc). This was the hardest and greatest thing I learned while quitting smoking - that there are other ways to get rid of stress without stepping out for a smoke.

I have to post my lack of support for this advice - taking a drive when angry can pose a myriad of obstacles (speeding, road rage etc.), same with sex when angry can hurt your partner. Punching a wall, smoking a cigarette - yes unhealthy, punching a bag no, yelling (righteous anger) is healthy, granted the person on the recieving end deserves it. Bottling in emotions is not a very good habit to get into, if you are mad with someone - let them know, if you are happy, let them know!

The fact I have such a rigorous training program, sprinting everyday, cross trainer everyday, weights everyday and general chores around the house I feel like I can eat as much as I want (paleo wise), if I choose to have a snack at 10pm I don't worry about me getting fat or anything because I know I will burn it off quickly anyway. I usually have fruit/vegies, fish, chicken or some eggs, I have laid off the red meat for awhile and it's weird I am still losing wieght even though I feel I eat like a pig, its an amazing feeling.

I believe half of dieting/exercising is mental rather then physical.

Don't beat yourself up lonewolf, we all fall short at times, with the exception of wlfdg who has probably not eaten something sweet for 10 years. Just get back on the wagon, and pat yourself on the back when you do good, and sort of slap yourself in the forehead when you do bad, but try to remain mostly positive when I eat cookies I just say well I shouldn't have, but I have been rather good with exercise and eating of late.
