  1. Tight belly, tight butt, no back injury get loose, and like Simon said, you can keep in mind most personal trainers get their credentials via a weekend (or shorter) class taught by another goober with a weekend cert
  2. so just record 2 hours of a drum meating 130 BPM, there ya go
  3. ^^This, get that upper back TIGHT and the lower tends to fall in line
  4. I tried it after watching the first 'rocky' movie, it is gross
  5. most beginners do full body routine 3x a week, and get good results, but they're also doing basic barbell movements Since you don't have the equipment for that, not sure that'd be the right approach If you like what you're doing, and it works for you, keep it up
  6. keep it up
  7. if you're trying to drop weight, probably boiled is best, just from a pure caloric standpoint, otherwise it doesn't matter, fried or scrambled in butter would be my go to I even learned how to 'over easy' them in the oven (300deg oven, a bit of oil or butter, 5 minutes, get em out)
  8. more DOMS, of course after you've been lifting fo a bit the DOMS doesn't happen as much, it just takes a bit for your body to go 'Okay, I guess I can deal with this'
  9. if you're pushing yourself you're gonna have soreness, injury and soreness feel different using correct form is important to prevent the latter
  10. you are always going to have plateaus with weight loss or strength gain A few years ago I went on an extreme diet, not to lose weight, but to reverse diabetes, and even eating 700 calories a day, I had times where the loss just.....stopped Then it'd start again after a few days with the limited equipment you have, I's be doing split squats, pushups (with added weight once you get fairly strong) Overhead press, and some ring rows or inverted rows if you can find a waist high bar to do them on Mike D96 might have some better suggestions, once he comes across this post I do think you may have to get some more equipment sooner or later though, even if it's just more, heavier Dumbells Ross Enamait has a good idea for homemade DBs: 3/4" metal pipe, 'standard' 1" weight plates, and hose clamps In fact, he has a book, 'infinite intensity' that's all round fitness, with mostly cobbled together stuff, but its a bit advanced for a beginner, for now just do what you can with those weights and hit some easy cardio every day for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes
  11. was just about to say, hacksaw that might be the only way
  12. I used to do them, but once the 5x5 got heavy (to me) I just hadn't the energy left, lol
  13. Sprints IMO are better suited to after training than on days off YMMV, etc
