- 60 elevated sit ups

Training
Almost completely got the ground roll down!
Instead of going up steps one at a time I am going up two at a time, then eventually 3 then 4 and so on as high as I can go, to get rid of fear of jumping on stuff not vaults or anything, but this should help with those too! and I am working on fluidly jumping up them which should help too :D

Workout
- 90 half pushups, this is where I put my knees on the ground and use my hands to pushup half of my body, doing these until I can do pushup's more easily
- almost 2 full regular pushups
- 60 elevated sit ups
- 150 squats going for 150 throughout the day, I do these almost daily with 4 sets of 30 throughout the day


Training
Some parkour roll attempts, well uhh seems my shoulder is hurting a bit, going to try and give it some reset  yeah hit it a few times on accident before, and now even if I only hit the meat on the back it still hurts slightly probably a bruise, might as well let it rest for a few days!
Still going up two stairs each time I go up any stairs, forget sometimes but most of the time not got better at it, I can go up them without any use of hands but it is harder without hands a lot harder :P hoping to get this in muscle memory for jumps up some things. and if I ever do parkour race's/free running races I will be able to go faster up things like stairs then some others :)
Also working on overcoming the hesitation when jumping down things (and by things I mean 2-4 stairs lol yeah gotta get rid of that hesitation!

Also I done like three precision things, but not very far at all, like 3-4 feets, needless to say I hit them all mostly, going to start actually training that soon :)

Workout
- 90 half pushups
- 150 squats through the day

Training
I done some of the stair training I have been doing.
I done a few parkour rolls, my shoulder still hurts slightly and I still can't do the roll 100% correctly, mainly because I am sitting on the ground or squatting low, yeah my body doesn't agree to that, I might have to try only slightly squatting positions on soft material.
I also done a few precisions, seems mine is already good just not the best
I tried to see how far I can jump, I used my feet to measure 7 feet (my feet are big, size 14 shoes so) and I could make it with two feet squatitng down then jumping.

I still am drinking a little bit of iced tea (its not to sugary it just has 21 carb's per cup of it so)
but I ain't drinking as much as before 1-2 glass's compared to like 7 yeah there's a difference, oh yeah btw my appetite has increase sense I stopped drinking it, didn't realize how much energy my body was using it for :/ like come on what would have made me full before only fulls me up like half way, but oh well I am not changing how much I eat.. Yet... and I had a few chips but no where near as much as I would eat before (like 1-2 bowl fulls compared to like a handful or so, yeah there's a difference... much difference... but yeah  I usually don't eat chips even beforehand so.. its easy to lower the amount I eat.)

well glad to be encouraging someone  xD
Honestly at first I wasn't going to be so honest about some stuff, but yeah I need to get rid of caring what others think, xD for some reason it was so bad before I cared what people on the internet thought... o.o

Title: Re: Training Log COMMENTS AND CRITICS WELCOME

Not caring about what people on the internet think is an important life skill. Especially when it's anonymous there's no reason to care.

That being said I'd like to give you some advice. You seem sincere and I think you've got what it takes. Your current workout routine isn't really going to do too much for you though. Check out this link http://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/wiki/training_guide and read everything there. And I mean thoroughly. It might take you a while to get through all the information and you may need to read it again a few times. Read the links, too. It will tell you pretty much everything you need to know about getting started exercising and the basics of diet and weight loss.

I don't mean this as an attack on you, but you need to be honest with yourself. You're 300 pounds with a BMI of 36.5. A BMI of around 18-25 is considered healthy, and over 30 is obese. You say you're 300 pounds but move well for your size. Adding that modifier (for my size) does you no good. You should want to move well for anyone, not just for someone who is overweight. You can't move as well as possible, you aren't in as good health as possible, and you're more likely to get injured. The great news is that you've gotten started and you're working on fixing it. Honestly I think your best bet is to prioritize weight loss and strength increases for now. That will make the biggest possible impact on your health and movement.

Post by: Magmaman101 on May 29, 2015, 09:29:39 AM
You don't get what I mean by can really move good, by that I mean I can move as if I only around 20 pounds overweight, (how this is even possible? I have no clue...), and btw I can't really dedicate myself to a certain exercise schedule, just not possible with my life.. so yeah, nor can I count the calories I eat, only a rough estimate, (I usually never decide what I eat, its usually my parents and they don't count it either so), btw I ain't going pass things like precisions/rolls/maybe eventually vaults until I am at least 230 or so just to be safe :P

either way thanks for the link, I am looking at that now :P and btw I am doing intermediate fasting, I've been for like years without realizing it ^.^ but I got no benefits from it thanks to drinking sugary drinks all day... 


and still thank you again for that, now /rant end

( I AM UPDATING THIS AS THE DAY GOES BY!)
- 30 half pushups (I am so tired right now D:)
- going to try to get 150 squats done even though I am really tired
GUYS, I need to tell you something, my strength with pushups is increasing every so often, my arms get tired after going to my max pushups and I can't do anymore really until two days later, then my max is increased somehow, probably all the extra weight I am carrying, if I can do around 6 pushups on the day my arms aren't tired at all, yeah once I lose all of this weight I can bet I will be much stronger then people who didn't train there strength while overweight, :)  if they were overweight that is...
BTW the amount of time I can do physical activity seems to be increasing too, or maybe that's just all those sugary drinks being removed?

Training
Doing stair training thing, upgraded the amount of stairs I do at a time to 3 :D
Done some parkour roll training, almost got the ground roll done only hit me head once and my shoulder like once, though my shoulder isn't use to it yet so its still feeling like I pushed past the amount of push ups I can do (I need to increase my strength more so its easier :P)
I done some precision, seems I was already really good at this :D

Also sense I barely have time to train some days (not a exageration, though I do go to online school doesn't matter, I have to help work in the house a lot), so I will try training with what I have at the time (its not uncommon for my to randomly jump off of things when at like a picnic always done it, maybe that's why I am so good at precisions and so on?), like if I am helping carry heavy things, try taking the heaviest there to train my strength, or of I am walking with my family, ehh run most of the time I can, or if lets say I am at a picnic, try jumping off of the things nearby such as empty bench's and similar, if anyone else has training tips I can do any time I am doing daily things tell me :)

BTW to the guy that gave my exercise tips and so on , up a few posts you said that sense I am overweight I am more likely to get hurt, yeah I really don't believe that at all why? well let me tell ya

I have been overweight for more then half of my live, and I haven't had any injuries worse then a simple SCRAPE, when I am doing just as much as average weight people, EXAMPLE: wrecked my bike more then once, got a simple scrape, so I don't believe the overweight = more injuries theory, or maybe its just me? though if you can't move at all really then probably more injuries, but not in my case at all, I have even fallen off of things and had no injuries what so ever, yeah I doubt you all believe I am telling you the truth right now, but it is the truth :P this has just been bugging me sense he said that I just had to post this, :P now end of my rant!
Title: Re: Training Log COMMENTS AND CRITICS WELCOME
Post by: Dick Stapleton on May 31, 2015, 09:18:11 PM
That doesn't disprove it, though. Quite simply you have more weight. That means everything you do involves more force. Landing, jumping, running. Everything. You cannot take the same falls you would be able to if you were at a healthy weight. Just because you haven't been injured doesn't mean you aren't more likely to be. More likely does not mean guaranteed.

For a decreased risk of injury and improved health and movement losing weight is probably the most important thing you can focus on right now. You don't seem to want to admit that and I'm not here to berate you, but you will be extremely glad if you do it. It's holding you back way more than you think.

Post by: Magmaman101 on June 01, 2015, 04:36:26 AM
No, I am focusing on losing weight, and I know there is a higher chance of injury, but I doubt I will get injured from simply having more weight :P of course most disagree with this, but from what I can see I won't, cmon I even fell down a full set of stairs (14 of em) and got nothing more then a scare.. and maybe bruises ('d like you to know I almost landed on my neck and nothing happened) maybe its just because I react faster then some? oh well...

Either way these are the only things I am focusing on right now as I stated..
- Losing Weight
- Muscle Strength (which is going well, I'd say)
- and the basic techniques like the basic roll not the dive roll just the ground one, or precisions which I am surprisingly really good at.

Okay if it's okay with you I am done slightly arguing :P I don't want to have a argument/debate trust me I will never stop... xD

Great to hear you are working towards loosing weight and a healthier life style. I've been focusing on loosing weight myself. I weighted 200lbs (yes, no where close to the goal you are aiming for I know) and am trying to reach 180 (I'm 188 right now), simply to reduce the impact my legs take on landings. I have a few tips for you since you are 14 and can't regulate your food and fitness schedule that much.

     First, work on taking carbs out of your diet as much as possible, be creative with it. For example, if your parents cook burgers don't eat them with a bun, use lettuce in the place of the bun or just eat the patty. I love eating hot-dogs with lettuce for the bun, I think it taste better as well. It is true that in the beginning your parent's may say stuff and think its weird (tip: most parents expect their kid doing such a thing is just a fad that they will grow out of) however, if you keep at it and don't stop they will begin to respect it.

     Second, work on taking sugary things out of your diet. I saw that you have already realized how bad the drinks are for you, which is great. Now, you just need to work on getting to the point where you no longer crave them because sugar is addicting to a degree.

     Third, drink a lot of water. Water is the core fuel to everything in our body, proper hydrating increase metabolism, energy levels, focus. People just do not realize how important it really is. For your size, try to drink close to a gallon a day. A gallon is 128 ounces so aim for about 100 ounces a day.

Finally, just work on developing a cardio schedule to help you loose weights. No type of work out burns calories faster than simple cardio. Even if you do not have much time to work out in the day, 30 minutes is enough time to power walk 2 miles.

Get creative with how you pursue these goals, and prove to your parents that it is not a phase by taking action.

The sugary drink I always drank (iced tea) was the huge source of carbs in my life, I don't eat bread and that way to much, basically I would drink like 6 big cups of it a day and each cup (the measurement kind of cup) had around 21 grams of carbs, yeah that was to much, I am still drinking it a bit but I am slowly eliminating it more, and btw my parents won't really care sense are family isn't of the families that eat together I usually eat in my room, :P and we don't eat hambugers and that much maybe once a month or so :P

I ran around outside a lot of the day, mainly helping clean out the garage and do yard work, but I ran around a lot of the time and done some really basic parkour things, mainly just getting jumping done things like 2-4 steps easier...

Training
I done two parkour rolls on CEMENT today, No pain or anything uncomfortable, actually IT felt better then grass, probably because its flat and grass has roots and so on, thats probably what was hurting my shoulder slightly, but the cement didn't :) and I got the movement down that I can instantly get up from the roll if I want to,

I am doing 150 squats, done some regular squats then I decided to start doing jump squats, man they get my heart rate up! :o and they really worked out my legs too, I am going to start doing these for a bit xD maybe regular squats too!
I tried to do pushups today but my arms are to tired, for some reason I can only do pushups every few days when I am not tired in my arms at all, guess its because I just started doing them not long ago, sucks I wanted to do strength training a bit today :( tho I did do some half pushups

Training
I done 4-5 or so rolls on cement, hit my elbow once. didn't get injured tho, scraped up my left hand a bit tho not that bad.
I tried a small dive roll on it, yeah I should learn it on grass first tho, but no injury I just bailed out at the last second and went straight cross my back from one side to the other
Honestly the cement rolls feel WAY more comfortable then the grass ones, the grass rolls are just UGH from all the roots and rocks!
sense I can do a basic roll on concrete and cement I might start practicing squatting dive rolls on grass tomorrow or so, or maybe get my roll in muscle memory first.

I also done the usual stair exercise I made up, its where I go up more then one stair at once, yeah I can do 2 steps like 1 now, and if I do 1 it feels really weird and like I'm putting to much force into it. yeah it helped my leg strength, going to start doing 3 stairs at once almost always now :)

Goals
50 pushups in a short time period
Have basic rolls in muscle memory
Do a ground roll correctly on cement more then once without pain or uncomfortable feeling - DONE
Do a dive roll correctly on cement
Have flips in muscle memory
Get to the right weight for my height and age
At least 200 situps in a row (I can do around 40-50 right now)
MAJOR GOAL: get people to do parkour with eventually..
Remove junk food and sugary drinks from my diet completely and fast food if possible
I will add to this as time goes on :)

Ugh still drinking way less sugary drinks and less junk food, slowly eliminating them, but its hard when your house is full of it :(

I rode my bike obviously.
I ran back and fourth and stopped ranomly squatting done parkour roll and ran again, done this twice, got me really tired and sweatier then any other workout I've done lately! and I also done some pushups tho not as many as before, I was tired today for some reason, maybe I need to eat me, I have been eating a lot lately, just didn't feel like eating plates upon plates of stuff anymore, and the fact that I am basically done drinking super sugary drinks that gave me like 400 carbs from how much I drank a day of it, xD I'd estimate my carb intake daily before was like 400 now 150 or so xD
Training
parkour rolls!I got the basic mastered! tho I can't do dive rolls yet, I can run and real quick squat and go into one transferring the momentum to it, tho I am slowly getting to a dive roll :P

Not much today :(
Training
Started basic dive rolls and I am doing cement roll,s problem is when I do them I get scared thinking it will be harder then grass, when it really isn't I've done them before, and they were easy, but every once in awhile i get scared to do one, and accidentally hit my elbow or similar..
btw I started some vault training, I can't do much yet, thanks to my weight and strength, but when I started, I didn't know what vaults are which, so I just done what I could
The only way I could get to work, or only way that I wasn't scared to do right now, is now that I see it, is like the lazy vault BUT,one leg crosses first and then the other, lets say I take my legs up to the right of me, I put my right leg first on the ground then I spin to the left, twisting my body to the way I was facing, kinda easy but hard to explain, do any of you know the name of this vault or if there is any? couldn't find it :(

camping on the 6th! and for around a week afterwards! good time to train and exercise for me!
Its odd, i think I eat less then the 2000 calorie diet now, (i think i have always) its odd that i still am overweight, probably because i had no exercise really for the past like 5 years, or so and a lot of carb intake above what it should be so i didn't burn fat while exercising, either way I have a lot more hungry now sense I toned down how much iced tea I drink (I still drink a few cups, but hoping to cut that to 0)

well, squats obviously for leg strength, and i rode my bike to a ally where i like to do rolls (soft grass and flat ground) and ran back and forth doing dive rolls/parkour rolls, i kept going until my arms were weak and my legs and my rolls got really sloppy, by sloppy i mean i was going really slow and literally just rolling from one side of my back to the other... lol
Training
DIVE ROLLS WOOT, and on concrete too BUT i have not tryed it over anything yet, and when i do i will start out with a object that is only like a foot off the ground...

Ugh tried a dive roll without running, for some reason i can only do them running right now, and tried going out further then i was before, that was a few days ago and i hit my shoulder, even doing regular rolls right now HURTS gotta give it a break on the rolls, :(

BTW guys, my stamina has increased by A LOT
running from my backyard to the front yard would've made me tired and sweaty before, now it just makes my breathing slightly higher, I'd bet I could run 4x farther then I could before.

I haven't updated for awhile, just a quick update, not a log, I haven't train in awhile, but I did parkour rolls today, just as good as ever, I am planning on focusing on loser weight more than parkour training for a bit, but I will train parkour still :D, and BTW today I was walking backwards in our front yard, tripped on something, hurt my ankle, hopefully it heals fast :D

UPDATE:
I haven't been training lately, I am working on completely cutting sugary drinks, and more food then I need (seconds lol), and I am working on loosing some weight and strength training, Haven't worked on strength lately, but last time I checked I could do a few push ups, which to put this in perspective, start of summer = nothing at all, after summer = a few push ups at 300 pounds, (tho I might be less now, don't really have a scale) and my muscle mass hasn't increased at all, tho the fat on my arms has tightened a lot, and my muscles there feel a lot denser, (which is good I do not want much mass at all, there's a reason I hate being overweight), and I don't think i'm gaining weight at all, I have a lot of stretch marks (obviously), most of them are starting to fade, but the newest ones aren't just yet, tho they probably will soon, which if I know anything means I'm not gaining anymore weight, as when I was gaining weight they would never fade,

Also the step training I was doing, (going up as many steps as I can at once all the time), i stopped that awhile ago, but I'm going to start it again, hopefully it'll help, cold showers, need to keep up with that, they were refreshing but I was sick lately so I stopped them, but I'm hoping to start them again, as hot showers make me REALLY tired for some reason. (relaxing probably lol, while cold showers don't make me relax until after i adjust to the water),

I am still trying to ditch everything bad in my diet,
I honestly feel like I can do anything, though my body isn't the best right now, I think I am going to start doing things I wouldn't have done before, its probably ever since a dream I had.
I was doing parkour, BUT it was much more extreme then I ever thought I would do, and I could jump up a four step height with ease, which right now, I am able to jump up 2.5 steps or so with ease, probably because the step exercise i have been doing for awhile, and i was getting to 3 stairs not long ago, but i decided to stop exercising for awhile like a idiot ;'c but hopefully i can get back into it completely. :)

Update: my whole family is going on the Atkins diet, and I have been losing weight since December, and I have ONLY drank water or the past 2 weeks or so, man my energy has increased....
Title: Re: Training Log COMMENTS AND CRITICS WELCOME
Post by: Magmaman101 on April 28, 2016, 06:01:09 AM
Update:
Been awhile aye?
I've lost 20 pounds on the atkins diet, though our family has been horrible at following it, you see, I don't really decided my food as I'm still 15, and they make stuff that isn't good for our diet a lot, like cake etc, at least i'm not gaining it back right?
I am going to try and start exercising a lot more, so far I am still doing daily squats, not nearly enough, but my legs are really strengthened, I'm still around 100 pounds overweight but I can run almost as fast as my brother who isn't overweight at all.
But then again, hes extremely lazy.
The other things, my arm strength is better, though I haven't trained much on it recently sadly, I don't really get many chances.
Now that its no longer snowing, I probably will begin adapting my body back to parkour rolls, now that i'm 20 pounds lighter, it'll probably be easier, and doing that will hopefully make me lose more weight!
---
Currently, on a rough estimate, I'm eating probably 50-100 carbs a day, while before it was at least 300, so hopefully I can really get into parkour soon!
