Ok........ I've got to get my metabolism moving again! I've stopped protein powder as of 2 weeks ago hoping I could send my system into weight loss shock.....Nope, aint happening.

I'm kicking cardio's arse 5 times a week - keeping the heart rate from 120-145 or so.

The ONLY thing I can think to do at this point is roll my lazy carcass out of bed and hour early - hit my little handy dandy shop gym since its a bit dark to be running at 415 out in the boonies with no light but the moon, and knock out about 20 minutes each morning then continue on my 5 evening cardio - blending in the 3 evening resistance into the 5 evening cardio.

As you are probably aware, I'm typing this for my own motivational alert - HOPING this message will sink into my overworked hard drive with many a bad sector and go into workout mode tomorrow morning at 415 \:\)

Anyone else doing any 2 a day workouts?? If so how many times a week and did you see a lot of benefit from it?

Something I noticed in one of your other posts, was that you are doing cardio before lifting. You'll see better results if you lift heavy and do cardio last.

Are you having variety in your cardio? If you are going out doing the hard run etc.. your body learns your routine and slows metabolism in anticipation. Mix up cardio, hill sprint repeates, long slow run, trail run, eliptical macheine, hard bike ride, etc...

No. I'm lucky to get the running in I do now.

But I'm switching to "conserve" mode now. TAFKAP III is due any minute now, and I'll need all the rest I can get.

I run 2 times a day when I have the time.I'll usually run 5 or 6 miles in the morning and run another 3-4 miles that evening.

Tried that - I skimp on cardio that way. I've basically doubled my cardio and reduced resistance.

1/2 mile hard run, 5/7 minutes hard elyptical, 5 minutes bike, 1 minute to drop HR a little between each - back thru that again

The advice above is good! Be sure that you are getting the HR up after you lift .. and dont forget to change things up. Have you ever tried boxing??

Also, how many meals are you eating per day?


Killer idea .. we should get together a team and do a TNDeer 5K team!

I am a large fan of the lifting side. Of course the more muscle you have the more you burn. The thing I like about it is that you will burn calories longer during the lift/fatigue/repair process than you will the cardio...

I am coming in on this late but how much attn are you giving your diet?

My diet is the worst it's been in 5 yrs... Now, with that said - my appetite is INSANE since I stepped up cardio several weeks ago, and I mean INSANE!! The fatigue and insane appetite worried me enough that I went to my GP last week for bloodwork......all good EXCEPT low Calcium.. I get outside enough, am a dairy fanatic and take D3 daily SO she is sending me to an endocrinologist tomorrow for his assessment. Guys in the last 8 weeks or so I can run home eat lunch - FALL ASLEEP in the chair at noon !! I've NEVER been a napper! Now I get 6.5 to 7 hrs sleep most nights and even some 8's on the weekend so I don't think its sleep related. All I know is I'm exhausted, tired, hungry ALL the time and diet is pathetic. On a good note - ran a half mile Monday in just over 4 minutes \:\) (still gaining weight - at 225 now) before hitting the elliptical hard - keeping the heart rate at about 135-145 - then resistance - then a 5 minute 1/2 mile following the resistance then 5 minutes hard on the elliptical again. BTW, my resistance workouts are patterned as in P90X - Bi/Tri/Shoulder, Bi/Tri/Shoulder, 1 minute break, etc etc etc.. Heart rate stays high thru my resistance workouts.

Diet SUX!! \:\(
Whatever is going on all of the sudden with my metabolism is kicking my rump! Im eating like an idiot and starving at all times \:\(

My heart rate is elevated - but at different levels - throughout my time in the gym. 135-145 cardio and most often 115-125 during all my resistance as I nearly run from one body part to the other, kind of mimicking a P90X routine.

Too old and too many parts hurt for boxing \:D

I read a study that says shorter work outs are better because it doesn't kick in that 'feeling of needing to eat'.

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/he...ticle-1.1462723

I'm no expert but maybe kick up the pace a little during your running sessions.

High Intensity.

You ever seen a 50 yr old fat boy running faster than 8.5/9mph for a half mile \:D
It's a SIGHT as is and I don't think I can do much better. The elliptical normally sounds like it's going to fly apart for my 5 minute intervals too - to a point that I get funny looks in the gym \:D
I'm convinced at this point that it's my diet - all the sugar - GOT to pull head from arse and get the diet back right. Did well today and tonight.......now there's only tomorrow to worry about \:\)

Interval Training. Simple as that. If you want to boost metabolism that's the best way in my opinion.

Do a little research on post workout nutition. Another search on Post exercise oxygen consumption or EPOC. Always remember you cannot outwork a poor diet.

Whew BIGB I just did some reading on EPOC and now have a headache \:D

I have no doubt my diet is my largest fitness adversary however my peanut sized brain cannot seem to say No to the junk in the pantry, so far.

I've been where I need to be - to a point that I could walk by my favorite cake or pie, smile and keep walking \:\) and was in the best shape of my life at that point, not long ago.

I can tell you this - it's been HARD for me this go around... I am doing very well in the gym - likely the best gym-work I've done with the exception of P90X at home years ago.....but as you said, you cant beat a bad diet with a great workout. For me, to get my head right, I think I'll have to start working out in the morning and the afternoon (which I've yet to begin so far).. I'll have to have SO much vested effort that I kick myself for reaching for junk food etc..

Yes it is good to have ammo for the argument within ourselves. After you've invested your time and effort in your workout you can tell yourself it's not worth undoing it for a moments plesure. One hour to burn 1000 calories and one milk shake to put them back.
