clearly u havent seen matty hayden the tank? haha. no i just want to work out regularly, trim down to a good weight etc. ive been running in the mornings like i said, ive been doing that since i was about 13 or 14, motivation begins to lack. trying the gym for something new. trying for broader shoulders, a bit of arm muscle, back strength n endurance, abs etc. legs are strong enough as they are, just need to get rid of the off season fat hahaha.

Chris, here's a challenge, work out something for me!

I'm six three, about 100 kgs......I've done weight work since I was about 14 (now 25, almost 26), played very elite level AFL and basketball.......but here's the killer, my injury list......

Left kneecap dislocated 3 times
Left knee re-alignent operation
Left knee reconstruction
Right knee cap dislocated 1 time
Right shoulder double dislocated (fu*k that hurt, took six people to put it back into place)
Right shoulder reconstruction
Right foot broken 2 times
Right foot fractured 3 times
All ten fingers (including thumbs) broken at least once
All ten fingers (including thumbs) dislocated at least twice

Irrelevant, but also broken a jaw in two places, broken my nose 3 times and fractured an eye socket.

So what can you suggest for a 25 year old whose body is an absolute mess?  Did all that before age 22 too!

Homer!  What have you done to the car?  I don't think it had broken axles before.

Before!  Before!  You're living in the past, Marge.  Quit living in the past.

What, I never said I didn't like it asshat! :P

At least I don't think I did... but if I did, then I'm the asshat.

LOL jesus ! you've had more serious hits than michael jackson  :D

well look, im not really in the position to say, yeh go hit up the weights, you'll be fine.

but if i were you, i'd write up a routine of what you done for afl training and up the weight lower the repetitions (my mate played afl at a good level too and he got pretty cut up fairly quick, but it was all lean not much mass heh)

just go in there, do a 5minute walk to get blood going, then do some stretches, go do the weights and don't go too heavy, even if you like a tool doing 5kg per arm on chest press, who cares lol, just make sure your technique is spot on before you even go near heavy weight. even though fractures and breaks arn't really an issue in weight training, if you have ligament issues that's abit more serious, although it's good to see your wrists havn't had issues, which is a good thing !!  :D

ok heres a question... you all seem to say you use weights. I, as a girl, dont feel the need to have bulging muscles from my arm and legs (we have a thing called thighs as it is) but could i use weights and not get all manly like... i guess the words are just 'loose weight and tone up'?

Coz i dont see how running/walking could get your arm muscles up to a point that they exist. Id love to throw a punch at my man while we are play fighting and him actually feel it for once. So can weights be used in my situation??

well i've just recently joined a gym. recent contentment has allowed kilos to pile on. stupid contentment :P

now i'm actually going in for my official measurements and crap on monday nite, chat to the PT and everything. but in the meantime i'm just going to hit the treadmill and the bikes, just to sort of get used to acutally moving. i've become quite lazy as of late.

a few stats, dont laugh at me! grr :P

height: 186cm
weight: 94kg... eek! but i dont look huge cos im so tall, thank goodness :P
goal weight: 75kg


i really just want to be a little toned so i guess i could report back here every couple of days to let you guys know whats crackin, and that might help out some of the girls too, to decide what you want to do.

Your my idol thumbtack  ::)

ive tried to join a gym a couple times... one was a free trial week, that dream ended quick, and the other time was i did a 1 hour aerobic class every friday after school for about 2 months. But yes both turned out to be failed attempts.

Ive also tried the whole taking the dog for a walk, walking around the block with a friend, those stupid blow up aerobic balls and ofcourse that exercise bike machine that now sits in the corner collecting dust. Oh and there was that one time i watched Carmen Electra's fit to strip DVD's but umm yes was a bit hard to actually move when shes on the screen  ;D

I wouldnt say im overweight but i definatly think i have weight to get rid of.

Basically i am the most unmotivated person you will ever meet.

You saying that after being lazy your actually going to push youself to gym it, well i admire that a lot. Doing it for the girlies  ;D

Deffinately post up your progress, id love to see how your going. Hey never know it might make me get off my fat arse and try again  :D

Goodluck Thumbtack  :P

im looking at bulking up a bit, although not too much.

Im 188cm and 68kg, so a bit underweight for my height. i want to get to about 75 -80 kgs, no more, i just want to gain a bit more weight for soccer and footy, without afecting speed and agility (my 2 best abilties - 100m 12.10).

I eat relatively well, but recently ive been trying to eat better, salads, steak, and eating more often, also taking a protein supplement.

i have oztag tues, soccer training Wed, Soccer friday and oztag training sunday, i just want to know if anyone has any idea how many times a week i should hit the gym a week? and what type of exercises etc i should do. also can doing basic weights at home help too?

Good work Bec!!! Just keep up with the motovation!

I remember the first time i did a body step class at gym. I couldnt walk properly for 3 days! And i had to sit an exam the next day for 3 hours. The workout was a good break from the study though i must say. Cleared my mind a bit, so then i could get back into the study after the class.

I started off going to the gym a year ago, just for a bit of fitness, as i hadn't played any sport since uni when i did dancing, but then gave up the gym after about 5 months, as i didn't have enough time after work or on weekends. I only went for the classes, and didn't bother with weights.

I now play oztag with the boys (Stick and Tommy) in a men's team, and up until recently i was also playing mixed indoor netball.

I'm 174cm!! But standing next to Tack makes me feel like a midget! lol.

Hahah that's funny!!! I worked wth a chick a few years ago who would've been about 190cm, perhaps even a bit taller. She was told that she couldn't do modelling because she was way too tall and the agency would struggle to find other models as tall as her for the runway.

The worst thing about being tall i find, is trying to find pants that are long enough. Short people whinge that they always have to have their pants taken up, but it's not like we can add extra length to pants! Even if you let the hem down you get a really bad crease mark that will never go away.

Yeah i'm finding the netball really hard on my knees, now that i'm getting old and all, which is why i decided not to play this season.. lol. I was told as a kid not to play it, due to having weak ankles, but i still did anyways, and never really had a problem other than the odd sprain. I'd much rather take up basket ball again, but at this stage oztag's keeping me fit enough and i'm really enjoying it.
