    You must be fucking fit.

    I might've meant 4-5 Laughing . But if I really really go for it, it can definitely be in that quadrant , knackered afterwards, if you really punish your body you'll be surprised what you can do a lot of the time.

    Im sure you guys had mile runs as part of fitness tests in high school? Was about 7 minutes for me in year 10...Around the time I started smoking

    I don't see myself as fit yet, quit smoking almost a year ago now. And usually I put a towel over the display on the treadmill because numbers are distracting/rewarding. Also means I don't really know how long, but at a pace where I could run after it, definitely would be upwards of 5-6 minutes

    That's quite good then. I stopped cycling for the last 3 months because my bike broke. Got it fixed recently but lost a lot of fitness, so going to have to build it up again.

    They're second best.

    The best thing about the forest fruit is that they're a lot softer and less chewy.

    Best thing for my fitness was getting a light bouncy ball and playing football inside the house with my brother. Then after that I had a few kick outs with mates and felt the difference.

    Motivation

    But if I don't stretch properly i'm down on the ground after 2 sprints Laughing

    I was like that, it's just starting that is the problem, I was awkward and quite skinny to go into the gym and 8 months later have put on a lot of muscle. It becomes habit once the motivation goes.

    Yeah you just need to be motivated. I started off tagging along with my brother and his mate to the gym, before i knew it i was going by myself 3/4 times a week.

    Can't wait untill next week, 2 weeks off college so my workout schedule should be packed. What a Face

    I'm gonna start jogging and doing hills sprints as well.

    Do any of you guys (UK ones) buy like oat bars from supermarkets? Thinking about in-cooperating something like that in for a between the lesson dash to class. Also is there anything that's a little snack, that's high in protein? (except nuts)

    Oh and one other thing, do you think wearing a vest instead of a top so yourself flexing better while doing workouts gives you more motivation, drive to get bigger? Just a thought... Rolling Eyes

    All you need is some dumbbells and a barbell which could all be done at home. I woud show you the sixpackshortcuts youtube channel and explain it but I think people in here are sick of Mike Chang popping up.

    Oat bars probably wont be good if you're cutting. High carb and high sugar more than likely.

    Cheese strings are quite good, high protein low carb.

    Just saw this.

    If you mean protein shakes, then the majority I've had tasted too bad to work with. I settled with MyProtein. It tastes amazing. And I'm fairly sure it works.

    Hmm I guess that's a decent idea - taste pretty rank though. Laughing

    @crump Can't go wrong with whey protein from MyProtein = http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/impact_whey_protein

    I had a pretty good workout today.

    My legs arms and core felt tight/hard as fuck after so I guess that's good?

    1kg won't last you that long to be fair if your having them daily with 2 scoops in.

    But yeah it's an easy way to get protein into your diet which most people don't think about..
