    Cling film effectively creates a 'sauna' around the middle which helps burn fat quicker. Many boxers who need to make weight in the final 2-3 days before weigh in do this.

    When removing the film, sweat drips or sometimes, pours out.

    ... So when are you going to post the 'After' pics?
    A couple of weeks after I get back......Not really, I've got this far...I'll drop the strict high protein/low carbs diet and then work on staying in good shape. The diet was only to drop the fat, and that isn't good in the long run. I dropped mainly wheat products (not all) and changed to gluten free stuff, my ''good'' carbs come from fresh fruit, veg and rice.

    People wax lyrical about the Atkins diet, 20g carbs a day with very high fat & protein intake. It's bullshit. This can cause kidney damage or even failure, as well as stinking breath and sweat (body permanently burning fat)
    Obese people who take such drastic action risk dropping dead.

    Yeah, not really what I meant but ok.

    Fock that for a joke though. You'd have to be pretty desperate and a bit useless to have to resort to that.

    All fad diets are bullshit. Utter bullshit. Atkins, Paleo, - how about the 'STOP EATING SO MUCH YOU FAT FUCK' diet.

    Calories in versus calories out is the only way to approach it.

    I agree with that but macros and the type of calories plays a part too I reckon.

    That's pretty much the name of the game.

    Gastric bands are probably more effective for these people. This guy is heading for the coronary ward

    Sad to see Geoff Capes has let himself go a bit

    Started the day with a swim and sauna.
    I did 20 x 25m lengths.. okay that's not much but still 500m.
    15 breast stroke then 5 front crawl and not too out of breath at the end.

    Did a 10 k run down the river. It took me fucking ages.

    Bloody muddy puddles.

    Yes, I'm going to blame the muddy puddles.

    Good idea, me.

    I joined a gym last week. Went Thursday and Friday just using the treadmill and X trainer.
    Sunday I dusted off the Xtrainer hidden in the shed and today I went to the gym again.

    My first exercise in about a year.

    Well done, Kurgen. Keep it up, but be careful not to burn yourself out.

    When your body is in top condition like mine you just need a tweak here and there to maintain it

    Took me a while to get back onto an exercise routine again after about 14 months, recuperating from a broken rib-cage.

    OK now, but couldn't do any much exercise for 6-7 months, just breathing and stretching, and then long walks, no swimming pool handy.

    It's surprising how quickly the exercise 'bug' gets ye, so enjoying my daily routines now, nothing too stressed out, short bursts/reps etc, frequently.

    Resistance bands are the greatest!

    True. It's an excellent habit/obsession. Almost as good as chasing a hit of crack with a ya dong shot.

    Slightly off-topic but maybe of interest to the runners on here...

    My neighbor recently completed one of those ultra-marathon thingies: 100km in damn near 18 hrs. Dude doesn't really look like a runner either. Quite a big chap, around 6'1 - 2" and 90 kg+

    Whilst I can't help but be impressed I still think he's an utter nutter!

    I was a bit too tired to run today so I did a 10 mile bike ride instead, in 40 minutes.

    What kind of course was it? Road, track, park? Straight run, out and back or lots of times round a track or circuit?

    A circuit of sorts but through all sorts of terrain I think. It was here in Thailand, Pakchong

    The trick to uphill cycling is to move down to a middle gear once you've used 1st to get some momentum. Using first gear all the up the hill tires you faster. You'll push harder but get further eventually

    Then again that depends on your fitness levels and the gradient

    You can't really get any momentum in the granny gear can you? Depending on how fit you're feeling, approach the hill at pace in high gear, focus on a spot you think you'll be able to reach, stand out of the saddle and ride for it. Once at your marker, click down through the gears and ride in the saddle at a speed you feel comfortable with at a high cadence. Alternate this with out-of-saddle efforts in a higher gear until you hit the summit.

    Today it was about back, arms and abdominal in the gym. No single joint exercises like any kind of biceps or triceps isolation exercises which have basically screwed up my elbow joints at one time or another. You can get your biceps and triceps workout in many back exercises. Avoided crunches in favor of the Plank on a exercise ball, except for one machine I just have to use. Call it addiction, I guess. Also, moved as quickly as possible from set to set and exercise to exercise to increase aerobic exertion. Ended up doing 4 sets of 10 reps each for 10 different exercises in an hour exactly. Will run 7.5-10k tomorrow for a full on aerobic session. Cutting out the sugar and increasing protein intake to get rid of that last stubborn bit of belly fat.
