Keeping fit

Recommended Posts

You might get referred physio. I had the same problem a few years back, my knee would seize up the day after exercise and I couldn't bend it for 24 hours. They couldn't really diagnose it, but they sent me for weekly physio on the NHS with a lovely young thing called Candy who cleared it up.

The right bottom bit of my left foot - if that makes sense - not as mad as it was but I can't step on it with out limping a little.

It was great. I got out of work legit once a week, I got a lovely knee massage and lessons in how to put strapping on correctly. I was actually quite sad when it cleared up. :lol:

I did the same as SLP and it worked for me, kept resting my knee, it kept flaring back up after 1 or 2 miles and I had to stop. Was referred to a physio who unfortunately was too male to be called Candy but he did nail the problem straight away, told me it wasn't my knee, was a muscle that runs from the hip down and was given exercises to stretch it as it was awkward to stretch the muscle if you didn't know about it. He was spot on I've never had bother with it since.

My lass's dad has a similar problem and he swears by rubbing crushed garlic and butter into his feet at night. He says he wears a sock on top overnight and in the morning the swelling's always gone.

My work netball team has started up again and I'm wavering over whether to commit or not. I said I would play because I thought it'd be like a year or two ago when we just had 1 game a week against another team in the league, but today I had an email with a Powerpoint presentation on the rules and suggestions for drills we can do in training sessions. :lol: Don't think I'm that fucking interested like. I don't even particularly like netball, it's full of bitches.

 

Actually, just remembered I'm also shite at it, so I think I'll sack it off. Must make up some other commitment that has come up.

:lol: If it was a sport where I could go straight through them (joke in there somewhere) with a hard challenge rather than being a shitty non-contact sport, I'd be a lot more up for it.

Doing the 7 minute work out every day and certainly improving. Can now do proper push ups rather than the fatty knees on the floor, bob your head type.

 

Also just doubled up with an hour on the gym so well and truly foooked.

 

Being watching the biggest loser lately and it's quite amazing how quickly these horrifically fat people become fit whilst still obese.

 

Decided to try and step up my own attempts so that I can finally get below 12 stone.

how many times are you doing this 7min work out, not once like surely?

:lol: fuck off

 

The idea is once a day and it's obviously aimed at unfit people who find every excuse under the sun not to exercise. It's hard to find an excuse not to find 7 minutes.

 

Hopefully as you become slimmer and fitter, you not only feel able to do more but want to do more. That's where I am at the minute.

 

That said, for a lot of people who arnt gym rats, a 7 minute work out every day must be beneficial.

i wasn't trying to take the piss fwiw i was pointing out because you can err "miss things" now and again that you might be supposed to do it more than once.

 

most of those short workouts are meant to be done like circuits/in sets with a brief rest period after completion doing as many as you can till you're busted.

This is the blurb on the app....

 

 

Backed by peer-reviewed scientific research, the “7 minute workout” is becoming an international hit. The authors, Brett Kilka (C.S.C.S., B.S.) and Chris Jordan (M.S., C.S.C.S.) have written a very comprehensive research article that should really be read in its entirety.

 

 

 

For those with little time or patience – here is our summary:

 

The researchers have put together 12 exercises that can be performed in seven minutes but achieve the equivalent of an hour’s workout. The catch is the following: you need to do them to the best of your abilities (high-intensity) and rest very little in between (10 seconds only). When rest intervals are too long though, it undermines the effectiveness of the workout. The 7 Minute Workout effectively increases your metabolism, so the benefits are in effect throughout the day.

 

The article goes into great detail as to why these 12 exercises were chosen in particular – it was not a random selection. For the sake of brevity, we have left out the details. From a practical standpoint though, we will point out that the exercises do not require any equipment, and therefore, can be performed anywhere and anytime. The researchers recommend doing the circuit 2-3 times if time allows.

 

What is the basis behind the workout though?

 

There is no debate in the fitness community that regular aerobic and resistance training results in increased physical energy, prevention of fatigue, decrease in insulin resistance (a major factor in Type II Diabetes development) and weight loss.

 

Traditional resistance training involves lifting weights for 8-12 repetitions and taking 1-2 minutes of rest. As a result, the sessions are rather long at 30 to 60 minutes and need to be done several times a week.

 

The “7 Minute Workout” does not abide by those rules. This engineered workout is based upon the concept of high-intensity circuit training or HICT. It is a combination of high-intensity aerobic and resistance training with limited rest placed in between. Numerous cited studies have shown that HICT achieves GREATER gains in SHORTER overall exercise time, than traditional workout routines.

 

What are the workout’s limitations?

 

The researches state that “although HICT can be an efficient means by which to improve health and decrease body fat, it may be inferior to creating absolute strength and power, specific endurance, and other specific performance variables”. In short, this is the routine for the masses, not the elite. If you are an athlete, this workout is likely not for you. This is for those with busy lives that want to simply become or stay healthy and wish to achieve that goal with minimal time commitment.

you'll start at 7 minutes but once you start seeing a change you'll want more...then it will take over your life!

 

:lol: I was watching Skyfall the other night and noticed Daniel Craigs form and considered how far away I was.
