    Other than the sheer boredom of being on an elliptical machine for that long, I would concur with recommendations to add some HIIT. I might recommend some HOC work, too (heavy object cardio) - take...

    Echoing the above, a few pushups here and there is a great way to improve numbers - and strength.

    The trick is to remember to do them!

    But after a month of randomly doing small sets of 3-5...

    I think Profs. Palfrey, Neckhammer and eKatherine all make some interesting and valid points.

    But this thread brings to mind some I recall from a few months ago, where the subject of exercise...

    Yeah - that's not a lot of protein. I would up the eggs and add some more meat and fish. It does take some getting used to, though - particularly if you were big grains person.

    If you still have...

    Are your numbers closer to our colleague's beginning stats or current stats?

    If you are only lifting 10lb weights, you aren't going to put on any appreciable muscle mass - certainly not enough to...

    Are you talking about actually increasing muscle size - or just increasing tone and definition?

    If it's the former, you can't do that and lose fat at the same time. To increase muscle size, you...

    Here's mine (similar to some of yours!):

    1) 1-arm pushup
    2) pistol squat
    3) handstand (kicking up onto the wall)
    4) 300 workout in under 26 minutes

    I think the 1-arm pullup will have to wait...

    I think you are right to try to limit the definition to physical fitness - otherwise we conflate "fit" with "suitable for" - which is true in terms of how the word is used, but not helpful for our...

    I think this is a great and important question - with a lot of different directions for answers (as our colleagues have already suggested).

    I would start where Prof. Primalrob started, the ability...

    We actually have a poster of her doing dumbbell bench presses in our work out room. I guess they didn't have sports bras or something back then, since she is lifting in her brazier!

    Still, it's a...

    I think our colleague's outrage is understandable. There is a certain virtue to the work it takes to mold one's body into the image one has for it. Things like steroids seem to bypass that. But...

    Reminds me of a line from the Lord of the Rings: "Short cuts lead to long delays!"

    I wonder how many people end up doing more harm than good with such things (probably most), so that they take...

    I just got to unevens on the CC progression. So I'll concur with both the OP and, well everyone else.

    Pavel recommends consolidation training to help with this, which I have been trying to use...

    I'm about where you are in the CC program. I feel like it has added muscle - but I haven't done actual measurements. I think if you really want extra muscle on the program, stick to the...

    I took a look at it too, before trying Primal.

    What sort of turned me off a bit was the order the big meal had to be eaten in - that seemed a bit strange to me.

    I can understand the...

    The various things you mentioned are all compatible with each other, anyway. A good comprehensive program that combined big moves (deads, etc) with kettle bell and bodyweight work would get things...

    I don't want to necessarily dispute some of the interesting posts here (and I think I will take a look at Leangains), but I tend to think the whole "gain muscle while losing fat" thing is actually a...

    I think I agree with our colleague above. Lighter db's won't do much for you.

    If you can do 12 snatches a side with an 8kg KB, you should be getting heavier bells, not lighter bells. Even...

    Lots of what you talked about can be found in the Convict Conditioning system. Lots of threads on that here.

    You might also want to check out the Monkey Bar Gym at monkeybargym.com.

    In addition to the wise words of Prof. Neckhammer, I would add that, while it might be annoying that others can do things you can't do, you can probably do things they can't.

    So it's all a wash in...

    I think one of the hardest things to do in these situations is assess where you are at, and NOT compare it to either: a) where you think you should be (based on what?) or b) where others are.

    I thought Mark mentioned something in this neighborhood a few days ago, when he said that eating too few calories on the plan might actually stall weight loss (as would eating way too many).

    Part of it might just be a mental block, too. If you can do a bunch of knee pushups strictly, then you should be able to at least lower yourself in a full push up.

    I've been using journals for the last 6 years - usually ones I bought at Target for a few dollars.

    Each week, I write out what exercises I intend to do, and then what I actually do (or, if reps...
