Is poxy foookin hard , always struggled with the spare tyre over the years , lost 4 stone in 3 months 3 years ago and got myself into great shape and was playing ball at a decent level and enjoying it . 

Broke my ankle last year and didnt play ball and piled the weight back on ,Been back running sinceApril and  2 stone gone so far but still 2 to go , finding it extremely tough , pre season is horrible , getting slightly fitter week by week but its so frustrating !

Anyone share my pain ??Cry

5 a - side soccer is definitely the best way. great craic and you exercise like a mad bastard without even realising it. if i lose possession in the other teams half, for instance, im gonna make that run to get back amnt i? with running though theres just no incentive. its difficult.

People always go about losing weight the wrong way
Contrary to popular belief, running is not the best way

A quick, 20 minute weights programme every day is the best way. Low weights, plenty of reps and fuk all breaks.

Combine that with a healthy diet. Carbs before workout, protein afterwards.

Don't ignore cardio exercises however, but place more emphasis on the weights programme

I dont put on too much weight but wouldnt mind losing a few pounds all the same, since the incident last christmas I have put on a stone! Eat ok but not exactly healthy as I am a very fussy eater but am getting a small bit better, dont enjoy running and gyms wreck my head, basically I am fuked and slowly but surely I will be the size of Peter Griffin! I also enjoy a few pints at the weekend which doesnt help.

Might look into the weights like Ger has mentioned but unless I am pushed to do these I really cant see it happening, does anyone do any classes which are worth recommending? Just something twice a week which I could get into?  
So in short I am unhealthy and going to be fat when I am older! Approve

i knew you had to have with that comment. i won a membership there,was quite good. altho once you know the method/intensity etc there is no reason you cant do it yourself in a normal,less pricey gym.

Can be done but love my greesy food too much. If I put me mind to it I can do it. done it before when I was single for about 8 months, got down from 13 stone to 10.5. Although that also involved drinking from 6pm on a Friday - 11pm on a Sunday and only eating when I remembered to.

At a stage now where it is hard to find time to exercise, I don't eat as much sh*t but just don't have much time to hit the gym or play too much football. Might do as Gerk said and just do 15 minute high intensity weight session in the gaf. High intensity training for 15 minutes is supposedly better for losing weight then say 1 hour on a thread mill

Anyone got any decent work out plans for losing weight?

Planning on visiting the gym everyday for the next week or so hopefully, bored of my current work out which usually consists of -

Basic stretching

Treadmill for either 30 or 40 minutes

Sit ups for 5 minutes

a few free weights or shoulder weights on the machines for 10 or 15 mins, or else rowing for 10 mins.

i lost a bit of weight at the start but thats stopped the past few weeks, any advice welcome

If you do the same thing all the time your body will get use to it and then not burn as much calories.

You need to mix it up a bit,
I would advise to get a program off one of the instructors or get one of your mates to come along.
No better way to motivate yourself when your competing against your mate.

There was this author of a alternative weight loss book on Tom Dunne teh other day. He said if you have a cold shower/bath first thing in the morning as a good tip. When the body is cold your metabolic rates speed up hugely. He said just by doing that, people have lost a good proportion of weight.
 
Also he said dont eat breakfast, instead have two black coffees!
 
Also blow up balloons as means of excercise. htere is an article about it here!

Losing weight is entirely mental....

Disipline to train
disipline to diet
discipline to keep the routine......

All mental....if you want it bad enough...

I was the same till I started doing the classes in the gym about 2-3 years ago. I found them to be the best way of loosing weight, spinning, boxercise.. there is a new thing that a few mates I know did called hot yoga, it is meant to be very intense. its just basically streching but in the most intense heat. It sounds girly but I know  a few lads who cant even last 10 mins in the class.
 
I always found doing an intense 20-30 mins session is far better than running on a treadmill for an hour.

I lost a sh*t load of weight by eating only once a day.No conscious choice or anything just don't eat much when drinking.I was on a major month long piss up in Canada last summer and lost more than a stone in the same way.Very unhealthy and put in back on straight awayCry
Trying to keep the weight down by swimming every few days and just not eating junk since i came back,seems to be working.

Exactly this. Got married last year and went from 14 and a half stone to under 12 in four months by keeping to a very similar program. Swapped the beer for vodka

Lost about a stone about a year and a half ago by eating every two hours in really small amounts. Obviously the food I was eating was healthy. I also stayed away from drink for about a month. I am going to do it again in a few weeks so I can lose weight before an operation I have to have as ill be out of action for a good while after it and ill prob pile on the weight. I am also giving up cigarettes so ill really have to be good with my diet then. I exercised everyday for for an hour for 2 weeks with my friend that is a personal trainer when I was on this diet and lost about 10 pounds in those two weeks and the rest of the weight in the weeks following it. Its the best diet ever imo as you are never starving and you dont have to cut out a massive amount of food either.

I train about 3 or 4 times a week and get my routine changed every 6 weeks, I would get bored doing the same thing all the time.

I also take CLAs, BCAAs, Green Tea tablets and L-Carnitine (all for recovery and weight loss)

There is some really good information and motivation on bodybuilding.com

Unfortunately not but I have to now, no choice. I put on a stone the last time I gave them up but obviously giving them up is the better option than having a bit of weight on.

I was in a few different gyms on and off over the last few years but didnt really stick with them.
 
Last September I got a shock when I weighed myself and saw I was 15 stone, I just decided there and then I was going to lose weight.
 
At the start of the year I was planning my trip to Poland and that was good motivation for sticking at it, I ended up losing a stone and a half.
 
If I can do it anyone can do it anyone can do it, you just have to set a few short term and long term goals and stick at it.

BCAAs are Branch Chain Amino Acids
 
I do a mix of cardio and weights, circuit training is great for losing weight.

WTF are these bad boys CLAs and BCAAs?

What do you do in the gym?

My mate that I went with has now emigrated and I tend to slack off when working out in my own.

LOL
 
BCAAs are Branch Chain Amino Acids
 
I do a mix of cardio and weights, circuit training is great for losing weight.
 
I could pm you my routine later if you wanted to see it.

Yeah go for it Clap

I think that most important is regular training and well balanced diet.

Jogging improves condition, stamina, you loose your weight at beggining, but then you have to increase the distance or speed if you want to keep the effect, because your body is getting used to it.
If you want to loose weight, then optimal Heart Rate during jogging (and other cardio exercises) is about 70-75% of your maximal HR (maxHR= 220-age). It generally means that you can run and talk to a friend at the same time without getting shortness of breath. But pulsometer is a great stuff, very helpful and not very expensive.

Two years ago I was jogging 3-4 times a week, whole training was taking about 2h (30 min fast walking, 60min jogging, 30 min fast walking - and I was gradually increasing time of running), plus I was having some exercises at home (crunches, some push-ups, jumping jacks, etc.).
I was in great shape then, I have to start my training again, because I put on weight lately... it's not much, but I'm short, so every kilogram up and down is easy to notice.

That guy has good tutorials about doing exercises properly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmYwZH_BNd0&feature=list_other&playnext=1&list=SP5D4FDA5D308D70EC" rel="nofollow - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmYwZH_BNd0&feature=list_other&playnext=1&list=SP5D4FDA5D308D70EC

You won't loose weight without diet!
Beer is very fattening, it has high glycemic index (sugar level in blood rises very fast and then is lowering very fast too - that promotes the formation of adipose tissue). Generally alcohol is not helping...
You should limit eating saturated fatty acids and replace them by unsaturated fatty acid, avoid sweets and eat much more vegetables and composed carbohydrates - like
wholemeal bread (instead of wheat bread), etc...

Do you reckon you have to actually go to the gym a few times a week or would a 30 minute walk/run around the park etc have the same effect as the gym would? Is it just about getting your heart rate up in general or do certain types of exercise work better ??

A great way to lose body fat is the Fartlek Method of running. 

Basically it is walk, jog, sprint. Eg. walk for 30 seconds, jog for 30 and sprint for 30. Alter the times according to your level of fitness.

Alternatively, go for a few FB (Fat Burn) runs although when I was at Longford they were called the Fat Bastard runs. The FB runs we done were 8 minute runs just above jogging pace but below half pace. Because you are working at the lower end of your heart rate scale, the more fat you will burn.

It takes years of training and dedication to turn into a bodybuilder , you could always get to a certain point and just keep changing what you do to maintain the way you look when you reach your goal target Thumbs Up

How long would u do each work out for?
What other exercises would you do before or after the interval running? weights, rowing or anything??
 
was doing a 30 minute run on the treadmill on Monday, just at steady pace but for the last 8 mins i did 1 min jog  then 1 min sprint
did 12 mins last nite of 1 min jog 1 min sprint
 
its a lot tougher and you feel better after it than just doing a boring long run at steady pace.

Women thinking they'll turn into a body builder if they do weights is a completely ignorant opinion. Weights tone up fat faster than walking around the local park. FACT.

Surely cardio is better for weight loss than weights, no ??

Weights will do it quicker but to be honest you would need to be doing both weights & cardio. Just cardio isn't that great really. Weights are good for toning up & looking defined. It's understandable why women avoid weights but they have to be done.

My friend had me doing both today. Kettlebells and I could only manage 20 times over my head with a 8kg weight but I did it 3 times so I suppose its not all bad for my first time training in 2 years. Its hard work this cardio and weight business but I feel great since I started yesterday. Gonna go on a walk up to the hell fire club tomorrow so I will probably be found dead on the side of the mountain come tomorrow evening.

Good to see Irish women working out. Keep it up. First few times doing kettle bells will hurt but you'll notice your body change after 4 or 5 sessions.

I lost 2 kilos in 3 days last week. I limited my calorie intake to 1000 per day, walked 16k at a decent pace over Monday and Tuesday and played flag football on Monday and Wednesday.  Then i sprained my ankle Cry

The 1000 calories a day is easy when you eat the right stuff. Lots of Fibre and filling foods. Those Knorr Snack Soups are quality, they're only about 100-130 calories and fill you up nicely.

Dont mind all those health people, starving yourself and exercise is the best way. I lost 6 kilos in a week last year and then for the other 51 weeks I got to eat and drink like a king until i got back up to 70 kilos this year and decided to lose it again. It was only injury that prevented me doing 6 kilos in a week again.
