See, I'm studying 12-13 hours per day. I really don't have time nor money to go to the gym, but what I do have is a boxing bag (used to do muay thai) and a pull up bar. Now the question is, would this routine help me at least a little bit? Of course while dieting aswell.
-Pull Ups / Chin Ups
-Do at least 5-6 rounds of heavy bag workout.
-Go for a run twice a week.
Got a very difficult test in june, It's for a scholarship. Fully paid undergrad in Japan, only 1 spot for the scholarship. I want to ensure it, also it's spread out throughout the day and have at least 1 hour of rest inbetween each session. I live in Paraguay and I want a better education, trying to go to tokyo university and get an engineering degree.
7-11, 12-16, 17-21
Also japanese before I go to bed at 1 am.
Would be doing my workout in any of the hours I rest on.
My week kinda looks like:
Math- Physics- Math- Chem- Math - Physics -Chem
Hey, thanks a lot. Least I can do is some pull ups, push ups, squats and sit-ups so I don't go crazy. I can't just be studying all day without doing anything or else I'll become a fat piece of shit. I'll try to eat well too.
You do? I'm trying to decide between tokyo and kyoto (well if I do get the scholarship at least) Tokyo has more prestige to it but kyoto has a more relaxing enviroment. Also I just study by myself, learning vocab and kanji everyday. Maybe I should try watching japanese shows on my free time to enhance my listening.
Thanks for the advice guys, appreciate it. Hope you all have a nice day.
There's some stuff that you don't learn through academic sources. Like odd phrases and weird grammatical things which are common but not "correct". For example I doubt you're going to run across JK or "mecha yabakunei". Another weird thing is using the subject at the end of the sentence in conversation. "zenzen wakanai, ore wa".
I'd do it in kana but can't be fucked, I'm sure you get the gist anyway.
if you're a biginner than yes a little bit but you can make it harder by using only one hand/leg or use stones as weight be creative also eat enough and give muscles time (3-4 DAYS) to rest
Mfw I spend 2 hours a day studying math and physics and it already feels like hell.
How are you studying 13 hours a day? How long have you been doing this? Do you take nootropics or addy?
Even my MIT buddy doesn't study that much and he's the legitimate autist type. Back in HS, he told me he studied 5-6 hours a day for 3 years for the SAT. I went to his house and he literally had huge stacks of SAT review books completely filled out.
How did ya do it while staying focused? I have to space my entertainment and studying, or I feel like I'll go insane.
I got it, thanks
I am going kind of insane, I just overdose on coffee. Also I created a new account on windows that has all webpages but google and study stuff blocked. Only my books pdf's and necessary programs.
I study this much because the test is on june, your friend studied 5-6 hours per day because he had 3 years. I'll only be studying this much until june, then I'll relax until I get the scholarship and go study in Japan. I'll prob only study 2-3 hours per day while I'm there.
Yeah, its tough but there's only 1 spot for the scholarship like I said and I want to ensure I get it. I don't want to study in my shitty country, I want a better education.
Damn, this really puts everything into perspective. You're legitimately studying hard and striving your best to obtain a better education and hopefully achieve better living conditions than your parents.
Here I am, failed my classes because I couldn't be assed to even put in 10 minutes of work a day.
Godspeed man, you probably won't need luck to get that final spot. Looks like only hardship and desperation can temper a man and push him to achieve greater heights
Stay strong m8
>studying 12-13 hours per day
If you're studying that much (you fucking aren't, my friends in med school study less), you are going to a university which has a gym. Use it. Also stop lying to yourself.
Why isn't he? I'm at uni for 8 hours a day and have 4 hours of travel time where I study on the train. Why couldn't he be doing the same or similar?
Most uni courses recommend 1 hour of self-study for every 1 hour of contact time anyway. 12-13 hours per day would only be 6 hour days.
Yes you fuck.
Go over the bodyweight general on /asp/
You can make a decent amount of progress without weights (except for legs)
Go to fitloop.co
Go to reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness
Go to startbodyweight.com
Godspeed anon. You can make it
I like how you give an excuse immediately. Like fitness is going to be easier because it understands your situation.
I work 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. I run twice a day, and have basic at home routine I use to keep active and limber. On top of the gym.
You have no excuse that will make it any easier. Time in = results
Bless you friend, I hope you have a nice day.
Math masterrace desu senpai
Thanks anon, I respect you aswell.
I really can't afford it for now, gyms are really expensive in my shitty country + I'm poor and right now I really have very little time avaiable,. But studying takes a lot of energy aswell, I understand it sounds like an excuse.
Dude you can do heaps.
You can work your chest with different types of push ups and work triceps with dips and triangle push ups. You can do dips with two chairs or a chair and a couch.
I would say do as much Muay Thai as possible because that's an amazing skill to have.
One day work chest and tri's
Another day work and and shoulders (if you can get a dumbbell)
Last day work back and biceps on pull up bar.
Rest day, repeat.
You will definitely grow. Eat those proteins carbs and fats and you will grow.
hey man i am a real asian living in asia and i want to wish you the best in your important exam. Don't care about weights and all that bs now, just do freehand exercises. It's the most affordable and best choice for you now. They will stay with you forever. Good luck.
How do i force myself to study for 12hrs?
Please share your tips and valueble lessons.
Also you can follow progression like in pic related. However some progressions are not too interesting milestones eg 1 arm pushup, i rather achieve 50 diamond pushups. Some like handstand pushups and 1 legged squat.
Then again it depends on your goals. I heard cardio give the most cognitive benefits, but i think you should google that. Also look into c25k.
Don't listen to "dudebros" in here
Pull up bar is the most efficient form of getting a good body
I'll give you a good routine man:
10 reps – diamond push up
10 reps – classic push up
10 reps – wide push up
10 reps – wide push up (hands out)
Ťhats a set. You should do it five times.
Good for your chest
Do chin ups and pull ups.
I can't give you a specific routine on this one, since they are bit harder.
You should find what your max reps are, and repeat them about 4-5 times, if you can.
Do your boxing on this day as well
This is really good for beginners.
Do it after 45 minutes of running.
And Sunday should be your rest day.
You'll get shredded in no time, just adjust your reps and sets from time to time. Or add weight.
(Note: Guys here are fucking idiots, don't listen to the word they say. You won't become ottermode, you'll get pretty fucking big doing that.
My friend only uses pull up bar for two years, and his biceps are the size of a grapefruit, his back is flying squirrel mode, and he almost has an eight pack. Better than any of these fuckers.
You know 8 hours is 4-5 less hours than 12-13 hours so you're much less busy than him, you uppity cunt
There's always one of you in these threads who like to act like they have it all figured out and everyone else is a headless chicken
Get a durable cloth bag, and throw your textbooks in it. Hold the handle, and use it as a dumbell. Between that and the pullup bar, you can hit most of your body, but your leg strength will lag behind.

>3 days for 4 hours in uni per week
>mfw studying 0 hours per day at home
Thanks a lot guys! I Appreciate it.
Like I said, overdose on coffee. Take vitamin and fish oil supplements, oh and create a new profile in your computer that has chrome with every webpage blocked but google and your sources. And a bunch of your books pdf's, oh and setup a schedule. I have a whiteboard right beside me with my schedule, with time and everything. Try to do that, oh and also have motivation. If you don't have a motivation you will fail. I wish you the best and accomplish your goals!
1200 euro a year? only in shitty private unis, public ones are free and have a better reputation, especially for engineering.
I paid 42,50 per semester and at least in my state, Bavaria, it's not higher than 50 euro anywhere,
Studying in germany is also really easy for foreigners, look into that OP.
