I really wanna get in shape to do a yellow ninjetti cosplay in march for megacon! http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...iYDq8SFTjNCwE= I really want to tone up a lot and get stronger so I can do proper kick ups when I do this cosplay. Right now I'm following the intermediate workout routine that Kasinator created on here as well as playing sports.

lol you know it's funny it's been discussed on the discovery channel the best feritilizer for tomatoes are human urine cause it's really rich in nitrogen. Although I wouldn't dare to eat it, I kinda wanna plant one in my yard and watch it grow =x

When you drink water a lot on a daily basis for a long period of time, your body expects that much water to be taken in, and use that as the normal amount. You shouldn't have that "pee all the time" feeling once your body really gets used to all that water. I think I drink about 150+ fl oz (1.17 gallons) of water a day and I never get that feeling anymore.

I'm on a crash diet and fierce exercise regiman in order to cosplay as Vegeta (Saiyan Saga).

So far I have lost 4 lbs and will be debuting as him at the end of October, October 29th to be exact. I eat no more than 1500 calories a day and work out *cardio* everyday for 20 minutes. Due to a medical condition of my ribs coming out of place, I must be careful so the upper body like lifting heavy weights and bench press is out for now.

Could anyone assit me with the right course of action such as building muscle mass and strength trainning while losing weight and inches of my waist and hips?

No more bulk--in terms of training and eating-- time to get shredded/cut/ripped.

I have two. Hopefully when I reach my goal weight I can pick both but till then they hang on my bulletin board for inspiration.

Because when I was 6 I thought she was such a bad ass.

Because when I was 6 I thought a staff was way cooler than a baton.

Definitely need to get in shape for a Wrath cosplay. He's just so amazingly awesome like that. xD Plus, even less revealing costumes would look better once I lose the tummy. OwO



Currently don't have much time for exercise, so I'm just cutting back on junk foods. I get somewhat of a workout during the school day from running back and forth to my classes, stairs and all. Whenever I do have time on the weekends, Zumba DVDs are always fun. Oh! And DDR! I once lost three pounds in a week during the summer from doing the Standard to Challenge levels every day.

EAT more and dont kill yourself! You can loose weight and gain muscle. If anything since your really want muscle, You will want to eat more for the sake of growth! just don't eat too much!

I'm getting in shape to cosplay Rogue from X-Men : The Animated Series around March 2011. And Yoko Littner (Space Outfit) later in 2011 because I need to make sure my abs are in good shape for that, haha.





Up to 40 pounds lost since March/April. Would be more if I didn't quit going to the gym over June/July. I kicked it into full gear in August though. I'm really starting to notice a difference now with a bit of muscle definition, smaller waist and fat % lost. I had to go shopping for jeans that are 2 sizes smaller. Was a fantastic feeling! I'm so pumped to keep going!

Not currently working on it, but ultimately I'd like to be able to pull off characters like Noctis from Final Fantasy XIII Versus:



I'm eating healthier foods (grilled chicken sandwiches vs. cheeseburgers, fruits for snack, etc.), taking fast-paced walks every day, playing tennis every weekend, and will be starting P90X again probably tomorrow. Trying to get from currently 191lbs to a more reasonable 160lbs. If I went by BMI, I'd have to be in between 115lbs and 155lbs to be in the "normal weight" range. 160lbs should be a good start, anything better would be a bonus. Target date is June 2011, which should be a reasonable amount of time if I can stay committed.

::Doubletakes:: anime rogue figure?

Huh.

Anyway...



Arms are there, legs are there, torsue is getting there, abs are....not fucking there at all...

UGGGGGGGGGGGGGH this is gonna hurt.

As for what i'm doing:

In the gym every other day or next possible day work schedule permitting, alternating between upper and lowerbody with midsection.

Upper body is usually bunch, assorted dumbell exercises, low weight clean, that...crazy thisishowyouhitpeopleasalineman machine, assisted lift.
Lower body is squats, high weight cleans, assorted nautulus machines, assisted press, those...kneebendwhileyouholdthefreeweights exercise that I cannot remember the name of and that's really really bad because my dad use to make me do them for a quarter mile when I was playing football and it SUUUUUUUUUUCKED.

About 20 to 30 minutes of cardio after that to make sure that my muscles don't try to murder me in my sleep.

You know, after all this time, after playing sports for years and helping people with their workout, the best cardio workout I ever got was doing 10 footers on DDR, just...in a row, constantly banging them out. Oni runs were great for keeping your endurance up in the off season.

My Rogue cosplay is actually based off of that art. And yeah, spandex is not forgiving. I love being able to see my progress by comparing the different con photos, though. ^^
