On an earlier thread, The Fat from our Aussie Parish suggested that we start a little friendly competion to help each other reach our target weights.


The idea is that we post each Monday morning with our progress. There was talk of some rugby kit being involved but I am not sure how that will work, but I'm happy to award The Fat with some finest English kit if he manages to do well.

If you want to play please feel free to join in.

My Target is 92KG (which is my 'correct' BMI score) but feel that 95KG will be more realistic.

I'm game, I weighed myself this morning as was 101.3 kg.

Target is to be 90kg in 10 weeks.

I'm in.

Current weight: 111kg

Target weight: 80-85kg (more realistic 90kg)

The Fat

OK.
The Fat's not as fat as he thought he was. Nice surprise on the scales this morning has me starting at 111.7kg. I think my scales are a little under a true reading but I'll only use that one set so I guess at the end it will all be relative.

Good idea by Toby to invite others to join in and use the weekly weigh in for motivation.
My pie man is not going to be happy though.

Currently 14st 5lb = 92kg ish

I will try to get to 13st 7lb = 86kg Ready for my YRS fitness test in the summer- August ish.

I haven't been 13st 7lb since I packed in playing in 1998.

My missus has lost 10kg since last October so I'm feeling a bit of a fat get - although looking at some of you chubbers I feel better! :biggrin:

Wish me luck.

Very late to the party but I'd like to join. I'm a little heavy, but its more important for me to drop my bodyfat and put some muscle on my useless, vestigial little arms.

So, yeah. Start weight - 63kgs, Goal weight 58kgs. Body fat percentage will be calculated in a couple of days by the good folks at the referees academy.

I hate weights, bore me to tears.

Same for me usually. So I decided to start a program with more of a cross-training feel (4 days per week), and it's really easy to manage at home (bit tight on the budget and can't afford gym fees at the moment:( ). It's been working really well for me and I have only been going through each station twice up till now (instead of 4 times), going to bump it to 3 next week though.

Have a look here:

http://my.menshealth.com/workout/The-Spartacus-Workout-2.0/workout-a

Doesn't look much, but if you push yourself it works you pretty hard. I just do warm-up cycle for 10mins. Resistence level set just where you feel pressure. Intensity level where you would struggle to maintain conversation from 2mins onwards.

Then do circuit above (using 8kg dumbells for me). Then cool down cycle for 5-10mins.

So I do this 4 days a week. Referee Friday nights and Saturday. Rest Sunday.

What is everyone else trying?

Robert Burns
05-05-11, 12:05
That looks quite good.

I'll have a go let you know how it goes.

I have to admit my upper body strength is rubbish compared to my lower which I believe is very good. (I can leg press the entire weight stack in reps of 12).

Still don't have bodyfat actual measurements but when they took them Mat said I had less than average muscle for my height and more than average fat. Less worried about losing weight than reversing those figures.

Sadly - had 2 weeks without gym (physio orders), followed by 2 weeks on an all-inclusive holiday in the Bahamas, with a gym that was broken (yes I tried to use it, but.....). And the best food was the buffet, and lots of booze.

So the results are bad!

Hi Toby,

Don't be disheartened - there are a number of factors to consider- not least of which is that muscle weighs more than fat, and lean mass is desirable...

Happy to talk you through this if you want - just let me know...

All ears to tips, what info do you need from me in order to give some pointers.

Some generic background:

Exercise 5-6 times a week (mainly by cycling during the week long swim at W/ends) I will make this shorter and sharper as the season approaches.

In terms of diet, just try to eat sensibly reducing calories esp. from bad foods (ie booze and sweets etc).

Aim is to be c92-95kg but just fitter and lighter generally.

I'm never (best to be honest) going to be able or want to give up life's nicer things and actually going for a few beers / nice meal is important in return I accept that progress will slow a little.

Tips / suggestions gratefully received

Hi Toby,

So - couple of questions...

Height, age, position you played (when you played), excercise regimen, diet (break it down per meal and frequency), body type (if you know it...ecto, endo or meso)...that should do for a starter ;-)

Hi Toby,

So - couple of questions...

Height, age, position you played (when you played), excercise regimen, diet (break it down per meal and frequency), body type (if you know it...ecto, endo or meso)...that should do for a starter ;-)

Stephe

I would love some help/ guidance as well if possible.

Body type: Endomorph (I think- from doing a basic google search and some reading).
Height: 183cm
Age: 30
Weight: 103kg

Position: Front-row (early on in my career) second-row/ back-row (later on after losing a lot of weight - I was 88kg then, 5 years ago)

Exercise regimen: Has dropped a lot lately. But I aim to do this http://my.menshealth.com/workout/The-Spartacus-Workout-2.0/workout-a 2 times a week and only through twice (Tuesday and Thursday), Futsal twice a week (40 minute games, Monday and Wednesday) and 2 games refereeing (Friday night and Saturday).

Diet:
Breakfast - porridge w/ skim milk and honey.
Morning snack - fruit (apple and/ or banana).
Lunch - chicken salad sandwich/ roll (most days) or Pasta salad.
Afternoon snack - nuts (cashew/ almond/ macadamia), yogurt (not always low fat). Maybe fruit again.
Dinner- (probably lets me down a bit) lots of pasta based meals (spaghetti bolognese etc) and often big serving, always try to include at least 2 of the following vegetables, broccoli, fresh carrot, potato, pumpkin, corn.

Hi Toby,

So let me see if I have this right:
Currently 98kgs, 6ft4 - and have plateaued..

Personally, I think you're being waaaay too hard on yourself....for a big guy, your weight seems fine!

Let's just discuss lean mass as a principle quickly. In essence, muscle weighs a LOT more than fat - and at a quick glance, I'd say your ratio was around 20%, if not less - which is good! (you can confirm this quite easily).

If I was going to make any changes, I'd say get off the bike and get on the road....cycling is OK, but it really doesn't push your heart rate the same way running (or even brisk walking) does....Also try and get some resistance work into your routine - your upper body is just as important as your lower body!

Diet wise- you KNOW where your issue lies - too many empty carbs. If weight really is an issue for you, skip the pints and try water - or sports drinks post workout.

Try and have your main meal during the day, rather than at night, and increase your protein intake and try and lower your carb intake slighly. HOWEVER, CARBS are king - and need to be maintained - especially during the season...

Finally, understand the difference between weight and fitness- they are not necessarily related....if your goal is to be fitter, then we can work on that, if your goal is merely to lose weight, it becomes a diet thing...hope this makes sense and is (in some small way) uselful

I have included a link on the different kinds of hunger - this may prove interesting...

Hi Mick,

How is your approach going to chnage now that your season is over?

Do you intend keeping up the same routine? Calorie intake...

Let me know what you plan to do and we can work it from there...

Hopefully my approach won't (need to) change too much, BUT I probably need to find a replacement activity (ASAP) for the 2 games I was refereeing on Friday and Saturdays - as I think the games were a big help in improving/ maintaining my fitness and maintaining motivation to workout (although this should just be living healthy, for me the games at the end of the week make it easier to workout during the week). Diet should be maintainable.

Restarted due to: a) Setback with the recovery for my knee; and b) all inclusive trip to Bahamas, where the gym was broken

Update:

New Target: 100kg by end of August (15.6kg)

Week 0: 115.6kg
Week 1: 114.9kg
Week 2: 115.5kg (4th July BBQ at friends house.....)
Week 3: 112.8kg

Week 4: 111.3kg

Total lost so far: 4.3kg (3.7% body weight)
% of target loss: 27.6%

Think the target is a hard one, but in the gym ~4 times a week, for 2 hours, on CV and rehab - limited to what I can do.

Finding it hard to crack the 100kg mark as carrying a niggling leg injury but determined to get under the century before the final weigh in (start of your English season in September???).
Good news is being able to make it through games comfortably which is making the effort more than worthwhile.

Good progress rather oddly not being able to exercise due to bust collar bone hasn't been bad (just adjusted diet accordingly)
