What’s the best fitness plan for me?

Question by Damon4000: What’s the best fitness plan for me?
I am 27yo, 5’7″, 138lbs, Asian and have been trying to beef up my figure by going (on and off) to the gym for a year now and watching my diet. I’m taking protein supplements and watchful of my carb intake. Most internet resources available deal only with exercise and most meals are too foreign for an Asan like me. I particularly would like to increase my shoulder, chest and bi/triceps size. What is the best mix of exercise and diet for me? Any suggestions?

Best answer:

Answer by Joey K
Yea, I’m a bodybuilder and I see HUUGE Asians at my gym. What kind of protein are you taking? You should take whey protein, 1 gram per pound of body weight. I recommend Optimum Nutrition- the cheapest and the best.

You have to lift very heavy weights- but don’t injure yourself. Work up to it slowly. You CAN do it, don’t believe that you can’t. You have to rest body parts, so dont work the same body part two days in a row.

Do something like this Day One: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps Day Two: Trapezius (part between shoulders and neck), Back, and Biceps. Do shoulder shrugs for Traps (be careful, go slow with very heavy weight)- that makes your upper body look very large, and it is one muscle that girls do not work out, so you’ll def look like a guy.

Tell me how it goes.

Just give me answers on physical and eating. I already know in order to lose weight you must exercise and i love walking and riding my bike but what else is there to offer.

Best answer:

Answer by The Grit
I can’t give you a lot of information, but I can give you one bit of advice about eating well. Implement the ten minute rule. You can go as high as twenty minutes, but ten is usually enough. Basically, what that means is, when you are eating, and you are trying to decide if you want more or if you are full, stop eating and just sit for ten minutes. It takes at least that long for your stomach to decide if it is full or not. It’s a great way to avoid over eating.

Also, remember that portion sizes are everything. Most serving sizes can fit in the palm of your hand. So, imagine eating at a restaurant and getting a plate of food five or six times that!

Hope those two help. :)

You don’t have to do them all in a row, but if you do each of them more than once a day, you should have really good, relatively fast results. Oh, and maybe for inspiration, you can read this:

What is the best 9 months fitness plan?

Question by Alex: What is the best 9 months fitness plan?
I want to start a 9 months work out plan.
What is the best alternance of phases (i.e. strength, endurance, and so on…)?
My goal is to gain 5 kgs of lean mass.
Also, can I do a lot of cardio like running at the same time, without affecting lean mass gains?

Best answer:

Answer by DM
I would have to say that the best work out plan would be pyramiding, to gain muscle. Start with a certain amount of weight that you can do 12 reps with, and then add 5 pounds to that and then do 10 reps then add 5 more and do 8 reps and then add 5 more and do 5 reps. this is the best way to gain muscle mass. if you are talking about curls though you should probibly add less then 5 each time like maybe 2 pounds. and and yes you can do cardio without affecting muscle gain because cardio will help tone the muscle that you are making so alternating every couple of days is a good thing.

I cant remember how much fat you should consume per day, but I’m glad to hear someone with a resonable goal. 2 to 3 pounds per week is a very health and doable goal. good luck. although, it doesnt sound like you need to loose any weight.

What is the best diet/fitness plan to lower cholesterol and triglycerides?

Question by artboy34: What is the best diet/fitness plan to lower cholesterol and triglycerides?
I know about eating more fish and getting more exercise, but what’s the best overall approach to balance everything? (I’ve been eating low-carb, and everything else checks out fine. The cholesterol and triglyceride levels are out of control, though…)

Best answer:

Answer by gangadharan_nair
Dyslipidemia is elevation of plasma cholesterol and/or TGs or a low HDL level that contributes to the development of atherosclerosis. Causes may be primary (genetic) or secondary. Diagnosis is by measuring plasma levels of total cholesterol, TGs, and individual lipoproteins. Treatment is dietary changes, exercise, and lipid-lowering drugs.
Cholesterol –Get your LDL (bad cholesterol) levels checked at least once a year. (Target: Below 100 mg/dL). Triglycerides. (Target: Less than 150 mg/dL) Serum Cholesterol (Target: Less than 200 mg/dL) HDL (good cholesterol) (Target: More than 50 mg/dL)
Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet. This kind of diet includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish (not canned in oil), vegetables, poultry, egg whites, and polyunsaturated oils and margarines (corn, safflower, canola, and soybean oils). Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, lard, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.

Changes in lifestyle habits are the main therapy for hypertriglyceridemia. These are the changes you need to make:
•If you’re overweight, cut down on calories to reach your ideal body weight. This includes all sources of calories, from fats, proteins, carbohydrates and alcohol.
•Reduce the saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol content of your diet.
•Reduce your intake of alcohol considerably. Even small amounts of alcohol can lead to large changes in plasma triglyceride levels.
•Be physically active for at least 30 minutes on most or all days each week.
•People with high triglycerides may need to substitute monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as those found in canola oil, olive oil or liquid margarine — for saturated fats. Substituting carbohydrates for fats may raise triglyceride levels and may decrease HDL (“good”) cholesterol in some people.
•Substitute fish high in omega-3 fatty acids instead of meats high in saturated fat like hamburger. Fatty fish like mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Question by Kirsty Gray: What is the best fitness plan to have?
I’m a bit lazy, but I’m looking into having a fitness plan. The only thing is, I don’t know what to do for it, and I have tried these in the past but I can never stick to them.. can someone give me some advice as to how I can stick to it, and even plan one in the first place?
Thanks:).

Answer by Kirfuu
this is a diet plan try this
Eat more! Don’t be fooled because the article is referring to more of healthy, low-fat foods rather than junk food. Junk food can range from burgers to those cookies that you always bought! Adding a lot of vegetables and fruits to your diet will help you. Also, drinking bouillon, a Haitian soup, made with filtered water will help you feel full.

Exercise every day! This could be the most difficult step to follow. But what you can do is actually start slowly then steady increase the amount of exercise. For example, today you will walk for 10 minutes, repeat this for the whole week. For the next week, double your workload. You may get leaner that way! The important thing is to get your heart rate up and start, now!

Feed your temptations once in a while. Go ahead and have that donut or slice of pizza, but before you do, drink a few glasses of water and eat a bowl of raw veggies such as cucumbers, celery, carrots, and tomatoes. They will fill you up and you will have very little room to eat the “junk” food.
Consume things that have no calories. There are two things you eat and drink that contain no calories: water and fiber. The more of these you get into your diet, the better off you will be. For example, you can eat a pound of mixed salad greens with assorted raw vegetables (carrots, red cabbage, celery, broccoli, onion, etc.) with a low or no-calorie salad dressing and only have eaten 100-150 calories. This is because of the high water and fiber content of the salad and low calorie dressing. Also, eat lots of celery. It has only 8 calories, but amazingly, it takes more than 8 calories to digest it. So, you actually BURN calories by eating celery! It’s not much, about 2 calories per 8 inch stalk, but it sure doesn’t hurt.

Avoid sodas as much as possible. Instead, drink flavored water or unsweetened iced tea. Caffeine, when placed in a low-calorie beverage like black coffee or unsweetened tea, raises your metabolism and causes you to burn more calories. Too much caffeine has harmful health effects, though, so be reasonable in your consumption if you choose to have caffeine.

Have broth-based soups. They are relatively low in calories. A commercially-available ready to eat “chicken and stars” soup may only have 80 calories for 1 serving, much less than diet “meal shakes” or nutrition bars.

Spread out your diet! Eat more small chunks of meals, rather than 3 big meals. If you eat 100-150 calories or so every two hours, your body stays in a higher-metabolism digesting mode. This allows you to burn more calories than eating just 3 meals a day

Record What You Eat! This is a simple yet very powerful exercise to open your eyes to see whether you are keeping up with the dieting plan. Often, we tend to overlook those snacking we do between meals and really think that our diet is failing us. But the truth is there can be many petty things that we do that really affect our dieting plan. For example, one might skip breakfast 3 times a week without being conscious about it. Studies have shown that if you eat breakfast, you tend to eat proportionally fewer calories the rest of the day. Without a record, it might seem like you are doing all the right thing, yet fail miserably in your dieting plan

Make Vegetables a Major Part of Your Diet Plan! If vegetables are not a major part of your diet, it is time to reconsider. Studies have shown that vegetables can play an important loss in losing weight. This is because vegetables are high in water and fiber and low in energy density.
