Re: Bond fitness thread

Just wanted to contribute to this thread with an update of my progress. I posted a pic of me on vacation back in the later part of April. I was about 235 pounds back then. I was happy because I was down about 10 pounds from the end of March. Looking back now, I’m surprised at how fat I still was. Anyway, I’ve continued with my new lifestyle of improved nutrition and more consistent workouts. Here is a picture of me from today. At about 201lbs (for reference I’m 6’0’’)

Re: Bond fitness thread

Thanks! I'm hoping someone can draw inspiration from seeing someone make a little progress. Only downside is having to buy a bunch of new clothes as I continue dropping pounds haha.

Anyone know which manufacturer was used for the pull up bar in skyfall ?

Re: Bond fitness thread

Hows everyone's #bond25fitnesschallenge going? I think those recent pics of DC in Matera (and all the thirsty comments women made) were definitely inspirational in how I want to look in clothes.

Re: Bond fitness thread

I've been doing general fitness over the years with olympic lifting and high-intensity interval training and have enjoyed it, so I feel I have knowledge of the movements, lifts, etc and have a decent base for my strength.

As with many of you, I like to reach general fitness goals for the release of a new Bond film. I haven't really followed any program in particular nor really had goals or achievements that I worked towards.

For the new film, I want to change that a bit and do a work-out program to improve my endurance. I can be pretty athletic for 10-minutes or so, but after that my body falls off a cliff and I really struggle.

So for that goal in mind, I've purchased the kindle book of Tactical Barball: Conditioning (http://www.tacticalbarbell.com/about/).

While technically the second book in the program (first one is detailing the strength routine), reviews online have suggested that folks start with the Conditioning book first in order to follow the "Base Building" programming for 8 weeks or so, then start to incorporate the other parts of the program into your work. I've only decided to do it a few days ago, so I'm only 25% through the short book. Plan on finishing it this weekend, making myself a plan, then beginning the base building next week.

From the sounds of it, the programming should be right up James Bond's alley.

Re: Bond fitness thread

I recently broke through the 200lb mark. The only downside is I have to rebuild my whole wardrobe as my pants, shirts, suits, etc are too big.

I found out that I've gone from a 38 and even a 40 pant size to a 33. I'm currently 195. Still got a little bit left. I think my ideal body will fall around 175-185...so basically 180 is the goal. From there I'll look at my bf% and figure out how to proceed to get that lean muscle cut look.

Re: Bond fitness thread

I've decided to make a public commitment to getting back in to shape and here seems as good a place as any......

I turned 53 last week and I'm nowhere near in the shape I want to be in. Having been in good shape most of my adult life (I'm ex-military, I have worked as a fitness instructor and I qualified as a personal trainer 7 years ago) I know what I should be doing but allowed myself to fall victim to all of the excuses I know are bs......I've also had some personal struggles to contend with but the last  few months have seen me doing next to nothing and I've had enough.

My current stats:

5'8" (172cm), 145 pounds (66kg), 19% body fat, 38" chest, 31" waist. Weedy arms, pretty poor strength and lacking cardiovascular fitness. 

My goal is to be in decent Bond shape for the release of NTTD - and by all means hold me accountable. I'll also take a look at the #bond25fitnesschallenge

My name has changed! I’m no longer dufus......now I’m DB6

Re: Bond fitness thread

In the UK the Holland and Barrett Healthy Magazine for January (out now) has a kind of interview with Daniel Craig. Theres not a great deal of info there but does mention fartlek training and his daily nutritional plan. It also comes with four free nutritional samples all for £2.45 I think  ajb007/martini

Yes. Considerably!

Re: Bond fitness thread

Thanks everyone, really appreciate your support!

I'm not sure what my target is in terms of numbers - drop some of the body fat and increase the lean muscle to look better in shirts I guess; feeling inspired by how DC looks in the Matera scenes  ajb007/smile
