30 Bananas a Day!

Tips for getting the most impact out of my workouts in the shortest period of time. Pics included.

Hey guys,

 

So I have not hit the gym so to speak since I became LFRV (lazy, health reasons ETC) but it's been 5 months and I'm really itching to start working out again.

I don't have time (and no it's not that I can't make the time) to devote more then 30 mins a day to extra exercise (above and beyond my already very active lifestyle).

 

So I'd love some tips, exercise ideas etc to help get the most impact out of my workouts. Mostly targeting my abs, hips and butt would be great! (my brother will cover the rest with his plan for me)

 

Here's where I am at right now (pictures on my profile page).

I'd love to be able to see my abs by summer, get rid of some of my "jiggly bits" and just generally tone up.  So thanks for any of the help:)

I love bodyrock.tv  they post high intensity interval workouts that dont take very long at all :)
Thanks joy:)

Find activities that you enjoy, and if you bore easily, switch them out.

I LOVE running, but I bore, so I sometimes Mtn Bike, or speedskate, I have rollerblades for lvel bike trails, and have been swimming a lot.

I suggest planning active weekends hiking or indoor climbing (learn! worst case, you hate it, never do it again).  have friends in the vegan or raw community that you share with, and have friends that motivate you to move!  Find anyone or group to do an active vacation with--if not the Himalayas or diving in the Red Sea, then Appalachia or Florida.  Or a cruise with an active bunch, or active themes..

I hate all-inclusive like cruises, but a lot of fruit likely (ask).  I hate golf, but is better toning than watching another episode of Friends.  And so on....

You are young, and have a great body, though you are aware of what is not perfect, and what you can improve.  A lot easier NOW than later, and a lot easier to maintain than recreate later, or much much later.

Many, or most thinking about having to get in shape also think of the 20, or 40 pounds they have to lose to get to your starting point.  You are lucky to have everything going for you, all you have to do is find the time and motivation--many are crippled or sick and can only dream of doing more than just getting a little workout here and there at the physical therapist.  Been there and done that, "bedridden" for 3 years with spinal injuries, told operations would get me 50% chance to walk with "pain and a cane".  Fortunately I was raised as a "hippy in the '60's", to not respect authority, and healed myself with diet, chiropractic, and lots of good attitude--obviously not hurt as bad as the doctors said I was.

MAKE IT FUN!

Wow Rock thats amazing! How did you injure your spine? I fractured my tailbone giving birth & my dr said they can't really do anything about it. It hurts so bad :-(
Stunts for movies and commercials.  That accident was a grand finale type of escape (ski) jump, the practice one went fine, not so on the final.  The practice one was used.  80 ft jump over a hill with snow tractors parked on the top of it, was not leaning forward enough on the landing.
"They" can't do anything about it, but you can.   Your body is programmed to heal, just remove the obstacles.  Belief that it will not heal is a BIG artificial obstacle, and belief is powerful, even when negative.  Good diet (as you are pursuing) is a major breakdown of obstacles.

Stick to 80/10/10, rest and sunbathe (for vitamin D). I experienced something similar and it hurts for a long time, just try to sit in a position that doesn't stress it. The healing process got a lot faster in summer :D.

Love, peace and sesonal fruits.

If time is an issue, I recommend checking out Tim ferris' books, blog, youtube vids, etc. Here's a couple of links where he talks about and demonstrates doing a single exercise (kettlebell swings) a couple of times per week for great results:

Hey Mel::  Hooray for ABs...when I think of Abs I think diet!!!  Diet Diet Diet!!!!  And since here on 30b we have a nutrition health regimen going on...focus on the workout and my suggest would be intense cardio.  High energy cardio!!!!   That will strip and surrounding fat, release water, so the AB muscle already underneath the skin will pop!!!!  **When you are doing your Ab exercises..concentrate on the squeezing factor....and do them until it burns--->THEN push pass the burn and do some more!!!   Try them in the morning when you wake..and befor you go to bed!!!  A few sets.....breathing in between..but SQUEEZE!!!! ~~~Hope this helps!!!
