Toning up, no access to gym?

Toning up, no access to gym? Topic: Pro no homework
July 17, 2019 / By Brook
Question: Alright, I'm 16. I don't consider myself over weight. I'm 5'8" and 130 pounds, but I want to be more tone (I have gross thighs and a little pot belly that is totally disgusting). It's not that I want to lose weight because it's summer, but because I have nothing to do this summer so I figure that it's a perfect time to start working out because I don't have school/homework getting in the way. I can't go to a gym because i have no ride. lol.. and I live in the middle of no where in the mountains of new mexico. my brother also has a weider pro 9652 that i could use.

Jog for 1/2 hr outside every day. Then do pushups, sit ups, and use a picnic table bench or other surface to do "dips" (google that). Then do "mountain climbers", "squat thrusts" "lunges" and and "wall sits." (google those). You can also do "squats" with no weights. Then do a lot of stretching. If that's not enough, you can jump rope, do crunches, leg lifts, v-sits, and a whole host of other training exercises. Do pull-ups, push ups, tricep (triangle) pushups, dive bomber pushups, scissors, good morning darlings, flutter kicks..... There is so much you can do outside without a gym -- google "calisthenics" and you will find a million of them. You can get variety by mixing up exercises. Run a 1/2 hour and do 1/2 hour of calisthenics per day and you will be fine.

Try this link: http://sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_articles.asp?id=773 On trainer says this: "Jen Mueller, Certified Personal Trainer You'll find a lot of different opinions when it comes to this question. I don't know that there is a lot of reliable research to substantiate doing one or the other first, so I think it comes down to individual goals and preference. If your goal is to build muscle mass and strength, you'd probably want to do your weight training first. If your goal is to gain cardiovascular endurance, you'd want to do your cardio workout first." So, from that you are looking to loose weight the most, so do cardio first, then lift after cause that's secondary of importance to you. My other suggestion would be to subscribe to one of those women's magizines like Shape, or Self I think they are. They always have awesome articles, and health tips too. BEST OF LUCK!

i lost 35lbs on it in one month and a half. Basically i just wrote down everything that i consumed for the day even though it was just a small piece which still counted and just imagine all that food together. Scared the hell out of me there after i just ate one meal a day. Nothing with fat and excercised like four two hours daily. Doing crunches, running, fast waliking and a lil boxing. I got some cramps and was sore for a lil while but i just learned to not to try to work out two hours straight and instead give myself breaks to rest and stretch. basically doing this and just feeling guilty for everthing i ate in the past made me eat less and in no time i lost weight. Also no snacks only liquids after your meal for the day

Do alot of running. Push ups and sit-ups also help. You should definitely get your hands on a couple dumbbells so you can atleast do shoulder presses and curls. Run and Diet because you can't burn fat without running and dieting.

Go running or speed walking, do crunches for your abs, lunges for your butt and thighs, push ups if you want to work your arms

When someone is overweight, the skin stretches to accommodate the increased volume of weight. After weight loss, the skin sometimes fails to tighten back, and becomes loose, hangs or sags. It often acts as a reminder of the weight you once had. There are some ways to fight it. 1. Skin care. - Start by exfoliating your skin daily in the shower. The outer layer of your skin is made up of old, dried, dead cells. Exfoliating will help the skins circulation and the balance of skin growth. - Treat yourself to a hot hour-long bath once or twice a week. While the bath is being drawn, add 1/2lb of pure sea salt to the water and allow it to dissolve. Besides relaxing your body and muscles, it will draw toxins out of your skin and will improve your overall skin tone. - Aloe vera extract, soy protein and yeast extract can improve your skin's elasticity by increasing your body's production of elastin and collagen. It not only tightens your skin but your skin's natural defenses as well. 2. Change Body Composition This means working on the ratio of your body fat to lean body mass. You should gain muscle to replace some of those lost pounds while preventing loss of lean body mass when dieting - This will dramatically improve loose skin from appearing. Also, loose skin is one thing, but still having body fat is another. - Lunges are great for sagging skin on the upper thigh. In order to tighten loose skin by exercise, you need to pinpoint the right exercises that will target the area you wish to tighten the skin on. The upper thigh requires lunges, in which you tone the gluteus, upper thigh and hamstring, pulling the skin tighter to the thigh and creating a more attractive thigh area. - Squats also assist with your lower body sagging skin. Squats are a dream to tighten loose skin by exercise. They provide an ultimate lower body workout for the gluteus and thighs. With your feet shoulder length apart, you simply keep your back straight as you lower yourself into a sitting position as if you were sitting in a chair. - Bicep curls target that nasty underarm hang. The arm skin that hangs down has been called many things by its biggest haters. This problem seems to be one of the ladies’ biggest woes and can be targeted with bicep curls. It is important that when you tighten loose skin by exercise you perform exercises that are toning the muscle, and therefore the surrounding skin. - Planks work that stomach flab. With your hands under your shoulders, hold your arms out with your legs straight and toes holding your legs up. You get the most abdominal toning with this exercise the longer you hold the stance. The recommended time is 20 to 30 minutes. - Crunches are painful but highly effective. When you are seeking the ultimate way to tighten loose skin by exercise and targeting the stomach skin flap, crunches can be the most effective. Crunches provide complete toning for the abs if performed appropriately. The back should be straight with the chin level, and you will raise your torso to your knees, fighting the resistance. This will be one exercise you will feel later. 3. Surgical Reduction If neither fixing your lifestyle, changing your diet, or using the above products didn't give you results. There is surgery, it is expensive, but well worth the money if you get it done right and by a good surgeon (research your doctors).
