My old Nike trainers broke last weekend. So this week I got new Adidas ones (Thank you Daddy!).
Wore them to the gym the first time yesterday and I love them! So comfy and best of all... CLEAN.
I may not be the neatest person I know (in fact I can be quite a sweep-dirt-under-the-carpet type of person).... but there are a few things with regards to cleanliness that I'm obsessive about. I think the soles of my old Nike's peeled off because I kept putting them in the washing machine and tumble dryer... ( I can't clean them with my bare hands if they are muddy... yuck).
I HATE soil and MUD and grass. So I cannot stand having them on the soles of my shoes. I'm also particular about glasses I drink from, and the ice (sometimes i feel that ice isn't clean). Other than that, I'm a fully functioning normal person! I swear. haha. (come on, we all have our quirks).
I need to work on my thighs and ass. But I keep working the top of my thighs more than the back of my thighs. Any ideas how to work the ass and back of thighs effectively? BUT NOT CARDIO based exercises (like an hour on the stepper!!!).... so bloody boring... I won't be able to stick to it!
now i noe we can throw our shoes into the washing machine lol. that's something new.
wayangtimes- Thanks for the link
r u french chinese ?
you should have tightpussy and tightanal
Maybe I'll work it into my regime.
anon 6.24 - no I'm not. I'm Eurasian. Portuguese and Chinese descent.
anon8.52 - there's a wonderful exercise for tht called the Kegel's. as for tight anal.. my advice is.. don't do things tht will make it lose in the first place! :P
anon 9.46 - yeah I know.... got to work on it even before it starts to spread. when i was a teenager... i was scrawny and then when I hit adulthood (the 20s) I started putting on weight.
Now I'm about 5 to 8 Kgs heavier than when I was a teenager and it's practically impossible for me to lose it and go back to my weight when I was like 18yrs.(EVEN 1 KG is a struggle to lose and i put it back on in no time)
So I am on a mission to maintain... (and also get tighter ass before it's too late and no amount of work will help!) :)
I usually imagine my ass getting tight, hold it and release, and go down with the weights again.
Works for me :)
Oooh ya, the breathing is impt too.
top of the range of motion? For what exercise? Squats?
do squats with weights? how heavy? I've done squats with the lighter dumbells before and felt like the additional weight didn't make a difference, was much better to just keep my arms out, parallel to the floor.
any advice is greatly appreciated
no point watching s factor tomorrow since u are out.sian ah
Date me :)
Joking.. or not.. hmm..
Think the advice above are good enough :)
must say u looked very different with make up or w/o make up.u looked more like a chinese w/o any make up.
any hot hollywood actors or any other male stars u favor?
anon2.45- yes. don't worry I'll be ok.
anon5.13 - i think you should still watch it! entertaining to see how things pan out.
Al- No thanks, sounds like you're the kind tht makes the girl do all the work! hahah (am v. happy in tht department now, so I'll have to pass.)
anon6.05- is it? yeah I think i look diff with and without make up. Otherwise, there wouldn't be any point to make up ! lol :P but yeah maybe look more chinese without make up.
anon6.27 - odd Qn. why? I do like leonardo dicaprio (since i was like 16)... and Robert downey Jr... Benicio del torro and matthew mcconaughey (dunnoe how to spell) and Al pacino is also a favourite of mine. never been the brad pitt or George cloony type of girl.
1. Squats. Not just squats but those kind that you cant even walk str8 after finishing the workout. There are many kinds of squats too.
4. 'Superman' exercises
6. Rubbing off excessive cellulite at hamstring area
haha all said i would love to see you actually carrying out the exercises.
No i'm not that guy that make girls do all the work :)
I make them do the work and then i help them :)
still digesting information though :D
plenty of helpful emails too (thanks everyone!).
some conflicting information though... had email from someone who is a PT and he mentioned tht squats build mass (with or without weights)... and will thcken the midsection??! I'm seriously thinking of cutting squats out of my routine.
went to the gym today but didn't do any more squats (the one with the weights on the smith machine).
found out tht this gym had a glut/hamstring type machines.. did tht and the side of my ass hurt! Will def do more of those... will note what it's called next time (yes I can be quite a ditz).
will prob try every little bit suggested out in the next week or so.. and then work on a Butt post (most prob from some gym in Spain!) Hope i have the discipline to go to a gym while I'm there.
After she felt them getting easier to do. She did it with dumbells. The trick is to do go down slowly and go up fast. A good rule of thumb is five seconds to go down and one sec to stand up. This ensures toning. If the exercise is done slowly both ways, then bulk is built.
you can prob work on ur posture, and other parts as well like ur back to improve the overalls.
well the glut/hamstring machine works for me too. it's all abt contracting (tighening) the muscles XD
work on a Butt post (most prob from some gym in Spain!) <-- yea gd idea. include some photos!
Posture is of utmost importance when doing squats (which may help to explain why you felt you were working your quadriceps more than your glutes and hamstrings)
You may want to try doing squats on a bosu ball w/o weights first. This will help to fire up the muscles around ur butt and your core muscles.
Lunges can also help =)
Round off all these exercises which you have planned with an aerobic type activity (30 - 60mins) to burn up the remaining fats eg jogging.
one impt thing to take note in fitness is that there is NO such thing as spot reduction. What we have right now depends a lot on our genetics. Hope this helps !!
btw i seem to recall you look skinnier in jc, not that i'm implying you're overweight right now....
ashtanga- thnx for the tips. and yeah... I was skinnier in JC., though tht weight wld be impossible for me to reach now. I was like just 40Kg.. and yet same height as now, 1.65m. ugly Boney.
though I would like to weigh 45Kgs. dunnoe if it's possible. Am 48 to 50kg now.. always fluctuating in tht zone. damn it.
40kg is like.... ANOREXIC !!!!! jeezz...
and anony 12.42 - yes you should start your work out with weights/squats first. Reason being you want to have the energy to perform these exercises in the correct form and posture. (remember to warm up first with some light jogging 2-3mins, to get the heart rate up)
finish off everything with your aerobic activity...and watch what you eat for lunch !! =)
I have a slim figure except that i need to tuck in my stomach..HAHA!
Can you give me some tips...
maybe besides doing sit ups.
