Forums - General Discussion - The 2021 Get Yourself in Shape Thread

With the vaccines to become widely available only towards the end of 2021 in the richest countries and far later elsewhere, not to mention No-Vax blockheads that won't have it even after five years of the hugest worldwide field test ever, wouldn't it be more prudent to make the 2025 get in shape again thread?

Well, I mean, it's still possible to workout at home and eat better to get in better shape here and now. 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I barely do it when I can go out and meet girls, but to stay at home naaaa, too much of a hassle!    Not to mention that my favourite exercises are skiing, swimming and dancing. Also cycling, but not in Genoa's traffic, it scares me.
Anyway, even if my diet isn't low calories, it's almost always low cholesterol, low saturated fat and often low sodium too, as I put very little salt in dishes (often no salt at all in salads) and my favourite bread is the Tuscan unsalted one.

I'm doing this currently, I'll give results later .

1st day was easy.  Btw , if you do this in a park that has too many children it becomes embarrassing, also not good look if you're fat jumping rope or not the right clothes.

For some people "getting in shape" doesn't mean "becoming as strong as possible"...

Right, but you'd have trouble getting to even Cat. III on this chart with bodyweight exercises. Cat. III is considered intermediate and basically somebody of average to decent strength. There's a whole other chart for powerlifters, and people that want to get as strong as possible. This chart is just for normal people.

I weigh 139lbs Right now I can bench press 40lbs only

Are you sure about that? The standard barbell bar weighs 45lbs, so without any plates you're already lifting over 40lbs.

Barbell 45 + 10lbs x 4 , 2 on each side. 95lbs then, My wrist circumference 6 inches , triceps circumference 9 and 1/2 , forearm 6. these arms are girly made.

Though I'm doing using info from high school when I weighed 180lbs , And lifted 40 lbs , I should update and try bench pressing again since I lost 41lbs. I think the max I can bench press currently is 45lbs barebell + 5lbs x 4 , with 2 on each side so, 65lbs maybe?

I started to do some abds, and I said to myself "ok next time I'll do more". And I did like 150. And kept going the next week, and then twice a week.
At one point, I reached 1000 abs in one session. And I kept going. Currently my record is like 5150 abs, and it took me almost 2h to do it.

And I lost 8kg (I don't care for lbs), and I am in the best shape I've ever been. I had to stop 3 weeks ago cause I moved somewhere else and lost my work-out room, I need to set it up again.

I'll continue until I reach 10k I guess
