Eat fiber and protein and workout 5-6 times a week.
Ok so on the food note, drinking gives you the impression of being full so if you carry like a soda or something around and drink it when you get hungry then that might help. Also fruit fills you up over twice as fast as oil rich foods.M4usor said:Meh kinda an odd question right? Well anyways lets start off. I'm 5'9 and wight 180. That's about 20lbs over the average weight of a 16 yr old. I've lifted about 10 times in my life, mostly due to the fact that I don't have time or a location to lift. Over the summer I did not exercise much. I've ran a couple of times this past week, but that's really it other than going to the gym those 10 times. I'd go when we were away at a hotel ect. Well it's jr year for me and I don't want to be over weight anymore. I plan to go to the school gym about 2-3 times in a week. I swim competitively as well but I find myself eating more good than normal after practices. How can I make my self full without eating as much? And how can I get into the cycle of working out too? Odd question but I know you guys can help.
Edit: an how this relates to airsoft? I would be able to play for longer an be more effective and have more fun. Also, if I do join the marines, it would help ALOT to be in shape before. Links, videos, whatever is fine.
If you start lifting. Remember..... Friends don't let friends skip leg day.....M4usor said:Yea so ill get some protein bars and try to sleep well(jr year sucks). As for running ill start doing it more often, may join cross country. And yea ill tell my parents to stop buying chips for my brother. BLOW UP THIS THREAD, I want all people that what to get in shape to see this and go for it, post good things to do when you start working out etc. Ill update this thread as well, on my own status and I hope that ill get into the best shape I've been in, thanks
This is something idk if you'll think about or not but after lifting always take a shower before you sleep. If you lifted correctly and you were quite sweaty then the sweat leaves a salty residue on you until you wash it off. Then the covers will stick to you and you'll just begin to wonder whats going on.M4usor said:Don't really drink soda that often. Ill lift and run once in a while as I said I alway have swimming because I'm on a club team, I just wanna do this stuff on top of swimming
Something I've noticed is that some people sweat more than others. I could be out airsofting with my buddies and while they are soaked I haven't even sweat a drop.One more thing, if you aren't sweating after you're done lifting or running you weren't working hard enough. Just something I like to go by.
You might want to start drinking water.airsfter123 said:Something I've noticed is that some people sweat more than others. I could be out airsofting with my buddies and while they are soaked I haven't even sweat a drop.
But if he is 16 and 180 lbs. he better be sweating or he's doing it wrong. And yes.... Water is important.airsfter123 said:Something I've noticed is that some people sweat more than others. I could be out airsofting with my buddies and while they are soaked I haven't even sweat a drop.
When I'm exercising I drink plenty of water. Something like 4 bottles of water an hour plus drinking from my camelbakYou might want to start drinking water.
