Probably a very good decision

I used to train with a weight vest when I was at uni, but I now live in the centre of a not necessarily big but important city and my morning run takes me past a lot of big government buildings, national monuments, galleries, museums, archives etc and I'm afraid that if someone doesn't know what a weight vest is, an...awkward...situation might arise—the vest does look rather "unusual". So I keep it now for my treadmill runs.

Re: Bond fitness thread

I’m still grinding it out on the gym floor and have added some running to my programme as well.

Yes. Considerably!

How’s everyone doing on the Bond 25 Fitness Challenge? I’m lucky as I train at home anyway so not much change for me on the training side. I’ve increased my calories slightly recently though but do need to keep away from chocolate jar  ajb007/lol

Sticking at it 6 days a week. 1 hour each day HIIT Boxing traiing/strength and conditioning, now home based and livestreamed/youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChAXnX … RZQN65mEQ. Fresh food. https://www.amazon.com/Fighters-Kitchen … 146548373X I like Chris Algieris recipes.  No booze.  Active rest on the day off.  Plenty of walking at other times.   ajb007/cheers

still on this plan, outdoors, which is great. have added a 20 minute stretching routine which is a great cool down and help with mobility (age doesn’t come alone).

It gave me the stamina to go from running 7 miles one week, to a half marathon the next, to a marathon the week after. I’ve never run for exercise and these were progressively my longest ever distances. Not recommended!  It was really 50% ignorance and 50% sheer bloody mindedness.  ajb007/insane

Dont wait for your ship to come in.  Swim out and meet the bloody thing.

Re: Bond fitness thread

Guys I've recently had to stop my PT training due to covid which has effected my business only on a small scale thankfully, but it meant this luxury has had to go.
I continued to train on my own in my garage until lockdown was over and then returned to the gym.
I'm not out of shape by any means but would like to put some muscle on and a be a bit more learner.
I'm 49 years old and have been following the VSHRED programme app , theres lots of chest exercises in there and its 6 days a week.
Struggling with tightness injuries due to my rotating cuff surgery i had a year a go and committing to those days consistently.

Do any of you use the P90 workout ? do you recommend it or do you recommend anything else.
I just want to find something i enjoy and produces results and reduces injuries, I also train alone and want to continue going to the gym.

Thanks for your help

Re: Bond fitness thread

I have done P90X 1, 2 and 3, all are good but definitely have different commitment levels.  1 is intense, but is an hour plus each day.  I enjoyed most of the workouts, but couldn't really ever get into the Yoga one, it was well over an hour and just not my cup of tea I suppose.

P90X 2 I didn't really care for at all, too many odd exercises and moves for my taste.

P90X 3 was probably my favorite, but I can't say the results were anywhere near what I got from the original, but the workouts are a more manageable amount of time.  I think if you could do the resistance workouts from P90X 3 and the cardio from P90X original you would have a pretty doable and effective program.

If cardio is more what you are looking for, I also did Insanity, it pretty much kicked my butt a lot of days.  Good luck

Re: Bond fitness thread

Rookie here..... 2020 was a tough year for the world, but it feels like I finally changed my eating habits and got down to the bottom of the psychology of it, losing about 25 pounds.

It's tough to find some basic dumbbbell training videos, and I hate to be that guy, but..... anyone have any tips\videos\resources they found helpful? Some real nuts and bolts\101 stuff.

Yes. Consssssiderably.

Re: Bond fitness thread

I started eating one meal a day consisting of 4 pieces of bacon, 4 slices of cheddar, and one chicken breast over greens with exercise and went from decent (I thought) to almost skyfall shape in 2 months.

Wife is happy of course. Not done yet but pretty happy. Now all my 32 trousers are baggy.
