Starting The Gym Tommorow
I am starting at the gym tommorow. I was just wondering what is the best things to eat, purchase to help me along the way. I wanna start by slimming down then tone up, what are the best diets, foods, tips, what I should do at the gym anything and all advice will help, anything I should use for energy, pills to buy anything. I dunno the fastest way to lose weight best stuff to do basically.
Well, I cant really give much advice myself, but a nice FAQ has been developed here full of resources to help you along your way.
Take a look through there. Might I also suggest look for posts by adonis. In his sig he has a link to his blog, which is full of weight lifting advice along with MMA related items. Along with that link is a link to a message board.

(credit for both of those sites goes strictly to adonis, whom is also the tao of fitness)
Hopefully you find something useful out of all of that.
I like to do pyramids. Thats where you do a set of 10, add weight then do 8, add weight and do 6, add weight and do 4, add weight and do 2.
make sure you have a workout partner. without a workout partner, its hard to have motivation, someone to push to the gym and to the next rep. on supplements, nos blast(nitrix oxide) is really good for working out. also, creatine and lots of protein if your looking to gain muscle.
yea i'm trying to formulate my own 12 week short term plan to follow.
nothing major. just want to start something to get back into stronger shape.
Hey thanks for the links man! The http://charlesgym.blogspot.com actually talks about some fish oil study - something I've been looking for, for a while now. Thanks and rep'ed ya.
As for gym if your goal at this point is stricktly to slim down I would do interval training. Get on the bike when you get to the gym. Set the level somwhere aroud 5 set the time for 20 -30 min. Get on the bike and go at a quick but comfortable rate for the first 2 minutes. At the end of that 2nd minute bump the level up to 13 or 14 and pedal as hard as you can and fast for a minute and then put level back to 5 and keep doing this till the time is up. You will burn calories all day because of this.
If you want lifting tips let me know. I am here to help you if you want it
good luck hope u stay consistent unlike me ...
Hey pimpslappd, whats the update on your working out now?
Eat healthy (at least try to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch). Oatmeal or Kashi Cereal are good for morning meals. I try to eat healthy all week, this way if I need to splurge on the weekend, I can.
Drink lots of water - I mean seriously, do what I do, buy the huge water container that is meant for reuse and travel (they are sold at GNC, CVS, etc) and drink the whole thing throughout the course of the day. Make sure the water is cold. Fill it with ice. Intaking cold water into your body burns calories because your body has to work double time to heat it up. Water, WATER, WATER.
Be sensible.. when you get on the exercise bike, olypitical, etc.. don't go balls to the wall for 5 minutes and then give up. Most people's aerobic/anaerobic threshold (something like that) occurs usually after 15-20 minutes, this is when the body REALLY starts burning calories. Do a decent pace for longer periods of time. Taking sections of time to sprint is always good (maybe not in the way beginning, depends on what type of shape you are in). Quality over Quanity.
Stretch/Warm Up before your work out.. and stretch again after your work out.. After working out is the best time to stretch. Your body is loose and you can maximize your flexibility. Not to mention that it is a good to do as a cool down activity.
Everyone else gave good advice too.. training partners always help for example.
