Not weightlifting, but for the weight loss and fitness I did insanity.  Dropped 110 pounds doing that and eating well.  Been a stressful year and I gave back 25 so starting back on my hardcore regiment now. 

You don't need cardio to lose weight, lifting can do that. But it is good to mix it in for heart health.

I love lifting weights and occasionally cardio but I've never been extremely cut nor bulky. I'm the type of guy that binge diets/excercises when I start to get uncomfortable with my weight then just go back to the required lifting. I only do this so I can eat pizza on Saturday night at 2 AM after the a night out and still fit into my slim cut shirts.

I've recently started going at 5:00 in the morning before work and it makes the work day so much better. Especially the 12-14 hour days at the office.

I do the same thing, 5-5:15 workout 5 days a week.  6am on Saturday.

That is impressive. When you first started this regiment did it take you awhile to get used to the 5 AM?  I seem to get a few in a week then really struggle the rest of the days.

the key (sounds obvious) is to get to bed earlier. I used to be out by 10 - 10:30 and had no problem being out the door by 5. Now, I'm up until 11 or so, getting out by 5:30 can be tough
I'm also 15 years older now

There was a brief period of time, long ago, when a friend and I would hit the gym before dawn. I've never been a morning person, so the waking up was always the hardest part, but it sure did make the rest of the day feel pretty good.

Nowadays I have precious little reason or motivation to even attempt such a thing, so I tip my hat to those who do. (Except I get to stay up as late as I want drinking beer and farting around on the internet! Yeah yeah!)

This is what I do. Planks, pushups, situps, curls and some chin-ups most days along with stretching.
Down 10 lbs, hoping to drop another 10 or so by the time I'm done.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

But the real question is..... What is your go-to Phish workout track?


I often go with 6/11/94 DWD.

otherwise known as the most raging DWD of all time, my dude!

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

What'd I miss?!?

I run a bit, so I'm all about corework.
Trying to stretch more than I do this year (~30min now) and more weighted lower back stuff.

My favorite weight lifting exercise is the deadlift. If you've never tried it, you should look into deadlifting. Great exercise for the core, lower back, and most of all hamstrings. 

I'm terrible with stretching/ warm up. I try to add it into my gym schedule, but sometimes I just don't have the patience or I'm running behind that day. It does make a difference as you get older.
