Just found this thread, thought I'd share and see if I can pick up any tips. Hopefully I'll be able to stay connected.
I'm Sean, 20 years old and weigh 150lbs.
I pretty much only do aerobic exercise, lots of reps with moderate weight.
Arms: All sorts of lifts with my 15lbs dumbbells, but I have three main routines to isolate my biceps and triceps.
Back: Once again with my 15lbs dumbbells, I work out my deltoids and lats (looking for a good trapezius routine)
Abbs: Oh I do all sorts of shit for my abbs. Slow sit ups, crunches, supermans, six-inch killers, planks, and I'm practically flexing my stomach all day.
Legs: I live in quite a hilly college town and I ride my bike to class every day, so that's the majority of my leg workout. The two times a week I do go to the gym I start off my routine with non-stop jogging of several miles (depending on how badly the running makes me need to crap haha).
-I don't eat hydrogenated oils of any kind period. So I'm always looking on the ingredient labels for the clever ways food companies try and disguise it. So basically no fast food, cake, pastries, and most fried foods.
-I take a multivitamin every day, no protein powders, steroids or any of that stuff.
-Do more aerobic exercise, it'll trim ya up.
-Don't quite lifting until you literally can't lift you arms/legs/body/etc. up anymore. Then take a breather and do it again haha, I prefer this to counting my reps. Besides, the moment of your workout where you burn the most energy and tone the most muscle is when your muscles are aching their worst!
-Don't be afraid to grunt and yell while working out, it proves to yourself just how much effort your putting in.
-To tone my leg muscle without destroying my knees.
I'll get a picture up when i find a good d-bag pic.
