    I'm doing the 3 peaks challenge in April so I'm looking to get fit as well as less fat currently doing circuits 2 or 3 times a week and 1 spinning class. In the addicted/mad for
    It mode at the moment. I (and others) have noticed my weight loss ( as I seem to be losing inches faster than weight) which is nice. So I'm happy with the 2lb a week as I 'should' of lost another stone by the end of April.

    If you are exercising a lot then you will lose inches before weight, for two reasons: you will be toning up and so your muscles will be pulling in, and you will be developing muscles which weigh more than fat.
    TBH it is size and shape, not weight that matters - You can have two people who are the same size but whose weight is very different.

    Well since Jan lost 11lbs but main bulk of that came off when first started.7

    In nov/dev put load on (not eat healthy with Christmas and lack of exercise) and then when concentrated in Jan getting back on track first month lost 6lb and between 24th Jan and 13th feb lost 5lbs.

    That puts me back to my pre christmas weight but like anyy weight loss and health program the first bit is always easy to lose it is the second part that is hard.

    A good way to lose fat...do 10 press ups, every 10 minutes for 2 hours...sounds daft but it works the arms, shoulders and chest, and builds muscle, which burns fat like crazy. It will hurt your arms after a while but believe me, it is worth it.

    Same goes for sit ups.

    Over 2 hours 5 minutes, should be like this

    0 Minutes - 10 press ups
    5 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    10 Minutes - 10 press ups
    15 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    20 Minutes - 10 press ups
    25 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    30 Minutes - 10 press ups
    35 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    40 Minutes - 10 press ups
    45 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    50 Minutes - 10 press ups
    55 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    60 Minutes - 10 press ups
    65 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    70 Minutes - 10 press ups
    75 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    80 Minutes - 10 press ups
    85 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    90 Minutes - 10 press ups
    95 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    100 Minutes - 10 press ups
    105 Minutes - 10 sit ups
    110 Minutes - 10 press ups
    115 Minutes - 10 sit ups

    If you are unable to do it after the first hour, break it up for morning and afternoon exercise.

    It tones well and if you think you will be doing 120 reps of each, you will tone up nicely, as well as define your muscles. After a month it should increase to 15 reps of each, and go up each month until 30 reps.

    Far too complicated. Eating sensibly ( see earlier post) and three or four half hour swims or gym sessions per week have done wonders for me

    my way is free, and costs time, but you get good rest between each set of reps

    MON
    WED
    FRI
    SUN
    TUE
    THU
    SAT

    that allows a rest day after each day and gets the body's metabolism in routine to work muscles, build muscles, work muscles, build muscles etc

    You are mental but well done sticking to that schedule!

    oddly, you dont realise you have done it over an hour, just set a stopwatch to beep every 5 mins.

    OK if you are a bloke but I don't really want shoulders like a prizefighter thanks!
    I do about 150 sit-ups a night which certainly helps.
    But ladies, or gents, if you want a flat tummy then sit-ups alone won't do it. The way that works, although it takes some time, is to suck your gut in as hard as you can for initially 30 secs and slowly increase to sets of I min each. In order to check that you have got your muscles tight, put your hands on your waist and then cough - you will feel the muscles pull in - THAT is where they are supposed to be.
    Takes about 6 weeks to see results but you can do it wherever you are and don't have to stop working!!

    Burpees are your enemy!

    Turned up the difficulty on my kinect workout and now its adding mountain climber and burpees in large amounts and fast along with push-ups in between and much more intense cardio warmups including long on the spot jogs and "tire drill"
