Not seeing any Progress

I'm just wondering how are you supposed to do press-ups properly because I've been doing them for 1 year now and I am not seeing anymore progress I always did 60 everyday and now I don't even feel tired is it because I have increased in my stamina or I'm just slacking ?
Also is my training regime too much for me or is it just ok: I do 30 push-ups,60 press-ups, 30 chin-ups and I am on the running machine for 5 mins, I do all of these things twice a day Is that too much ?
My little brother also does the same but I don't know if that is ok for him since he is only 14 yrs old and I am 18 yrs old

    You dont say what your goals are m8 is it to loose fat to buidl muscle increase stamina ???
    what progress are you expecting ?

    if your aim is to build muscle mass then you are doing way to many press ups take a look around the site for more info but the more info you can give in relation to the first couple of questions the better someone can advise you ... oh and Welcome to the board

    Oh right sorry, I am trying to gain weight and muscle mass, I can see my abs if I tense my stomach but I'm expecting to gain weight mostly from doing my training regime my goals are to reach at least 12 stone my weight is now 9 stone (I'm quite skinny), also is my regime too much for me and my little brother because I don't want to injury myself or lose muscle either.

    Your going to need more than pressups and crunches mate.

    You're going to need a good weights routine and a whole lotta good food.

    By the way I think you mean stone not pounds. At least I hope so

    Ok I have been to the diet and nutrition forum and bodybuilding for beginners I know I have to eat 5 times a day, every 3 hours I know I have to eat lots of fats because you burn 10x of fat in your body when you workout. Also I need to know how much muscle mass and fat I can gain in a full 6 weeks of my training regime, is it possible for someone to do an approximation of how much I can gain in muscle and fat ?

    Huh ???? i'll agree that every person is different, but that doesnt make much sense

    try and get around 20% of your calories from fat. ( mostly good fat , ie not trans or saturated )

    and to answer your question..... no.

    but, if you eat 3500(in theory) cals more than you burn over a given time youll put on a pound
    gaining muscle is all about stimulation, nutrition and recovery.
    if you dont do the above properly youll lay down fat instead.

    it really is a thin line... get it sussed and youll be well away

    Best advice I can pass on and that has been given to me bearing in mind im very new to BB is to read and read and read somemore of the articles and questions asked on these forums you will find a wealth of knowledge on almost every topic you could imagine .. but the most importnat is to get your diet sorted in its basic form you can then adjust it to suit your requirements If you have the determination to do press ups for over 12 months im sure you will do very well ... its a slow process but the end result is something you can be proud of because you are the person and no one else who has done it ... Good luck

    RE: Not seeing any Progress 2005/07/23 18:45:08 (permalink)
    Here's a guide for your weight at present;

    1.AVERAGE DIET: FOR 130 POUND BODYBUILDER WITH LESS THAN 11% BODY FAT

    DAILY CALORIE INTAKE: 2,600
    CALORIES FROM CARBS PER DAY: 1,430cals = 357.5g OF CARBS PER DAY
    CALORIES FROM PROTEIN PER DAY: 780cals = 195g OF PROTEIN PER DAY
    CALORIES FROM FATS PER DAY: 390cals = 48.75g OF FAT PER DAY
    55% carbohydrates
    30% protein
    15% fats

    BASED ON SIX MEALS EACH DAY. EACH MEAL SHOULD CONSIST OF
    59.6grams of carbohydrates
    32.5grams of protein
    8.1grams of fat.



    2.AVERAGE DIET: FOR 140 POUND BODYBUILDER WITH LESS THAN 11% BODY FAT

    DAILY CALORIE INTAKE: 2,800
    CALORIES FROM CARBS PER DAY: 1,540cals = 385g OF CARBS PER DAY
    CALORIES FROM PROTEIN PER DAY: 840cals = 210g OF PROTEIN PER DAY
    CALORIES FROM FATS PER DAY: 420cals = 52.5g OF FAT PER DAY
    55% carbohydrates
    30% protein
    15% fats

    BASED ON SIX MEALS EACH DAY. EACH MEAL SHOULD CONSIST OF
    64grams of carbohydrates
    35grams of protein
    8.75grams of fat.


    If you find the 1st diet too little food try the 2nd Make sure you have no processed foods if possible. Eat clean (good food)

    Example;
    Tuna baked potatoe with salad
    Chicken omlettes with salads
    Kebabs (Wholemeal pitta bread, turkey or chicken with salad and humous)
    Small bowl of pasta with tomatoe sauce, turkey breast and sometimes small omlette
    Beef, boiled potatoes or rice with vegtables
    Chicken, rice and vegtables
    Protein shakes; protein 1-2 scoops and oats 2-3 scoops and fruit if required

    There are so many different meals you can make, but as long as you get the above amounts mentioned in the diets from good sources then it's fine. Try to make the fats your having good fats. I use olive oil quite a lot with salads etc and most of my other fats come from natural foods. Don't forget to have as many different types of foods as possible, including nuts, seeds, grains, fruits etc.
    No white bread

    A good carb for the day if I go out, which I use, is 50% oats 50% mixed fruit with peel. Mix it in a blender and make a kind of flapjack. This with a protein shake works well for me.

    If your a person that finds some foods bland, use different things to replace salt and sugars. Herbs are good.

    If I have salads and the salad is a bit bitter, just add sliced grapes,apples or oranges.
    If rice is tasteless add an herb when cooking, something like thyme.





    Good luck and hope this helps.
