Alright sc/out/s, what kind of activities do you do to stay in shape for your (enter favorite outdoors activity here) season? What do you do in the off season? What are your goals conditioning wise?
Hunting, camping, climbing, downhill sports.
Mostly cardio, some weights(trying to avoid the gym til February), and small amounts of body weight.
Lots more running and some rugby. Most of the time I just watch my intake.
Get back down to 10% body fat and be able to run constantly for 60 mins at 7mph.
Camping, urbex, moutin' biking, field recording/tography.
Bike, tree climbing, pushups, light lifting (dumbells)
Jump rope, bike on the street when not too snowy, pushups, bidaily fappenstance
Keep fit, keep heart healthy, keep mind healthy, keep my MS from going full paralysis mode
close enough :]
If the weather's shitty for one, it's probably decent for the other. KEeps me riding all year.
As a with no car it's interesting to observe my family who have cars.
Of course, having a car is objectively better. I'm not going to argue that it isn't.
But it's like... I want to go to the shops just down the road. I'll walk.
None of them would ever think to walk even if it's literally under ten minutes.
I want to go to the city. I'll take the train. None of them will take a train and they let it keep them from going to the city: they don't want to deal with the traffic or cost of parking.
I try to walk a lot, but I work an office job that takes up a lot of my time so my exercise regime consist mostly of me walking around the block at lunch time and all season trail hiking trips on the weekends.
Why do you have to be a faggot, anon?
Because the idea that any activity=thinness is complete and total bullshit. Walking around hardly burns any calories, our bodies are adapted to use some of the most energy efficient locomotion possible. How fat you are depends almost entirely on diet. Unless you are honest to goodness athlete in serious training material you are not exercising enough to have a significant caloric deficit as compared to how much you can lose by just cutting out a few cans of soda and a bag of chips from your daily diet.
The human body cannot be reduced to simple physics without including metabolism, the energy needed to digest foods, the fact that calorie counts are inherently inaccurate, the miscibility of foods, the absorption of foods, genetic factors, etc.
>walk to work
>walk to lunch
>walk to store
>walk to visit friends
>go to gym and walk on treadmill for a long time
The calorie expenditures, as written, might be the same, but these are 2 very different things
In the first example, the walkers metabolism is raised several throughout the day, and when metabolism goes up, it takes a while to go down
The second example has one spike of activity for the entire day
You don't have to take the integral of these graphs to figure out who is going to burn more calories total
This is something that is not accounted for in the simplistic view of X exercise for Y minutes = Z calories.
Sure this can be negated by stuffing one's face with garbage, but walking all day long should not be so quickly dismissed, especially since it helps circulate lymph
Sorry anon, I didn't knew you were so sensible. I guess being homossexual fits you right. No hard feelings, to each their own, right? ;-P
While that may be true, if a simplification is fairly accurate why not use it? For instance while it is true the specific gut microfauna a person has will decide a persons absorption and digestion pattern, we can still use general rules that apply to most everybody to measure their general level of functioning and energy inpuit/output. And since it's generally found that variable metabolic considerations are not a huge deciding factor, while there indeed may be a difference, it's questionable if the difference is large enough to be the difference between a low body fat and a high one. I personally doubt it would be.
My favourite example of this is people who go to the gym, don't lose weight then complain that its genetics or some other bullshit that keep them from losing weight.
Yes, exercising will use energy. Yes, you need to eat to give your body energy. The thing is, a lot of people have such shitty eating habits that the minimal exercise they do will not negate what they shoved in their gaping maw.
Also, some people like a "treat" for going to the gym. Like a reward. Just because you walked on that treadmill and burned 200 calories doesn't mean you earned that heart attack known as mcdonalds.
I want people to lose weight, i want to see people become the person of their dreams. But i get so fucking angry when i see someone neglect their own self to point that a normal daily task becomes a chore.
This. So much this. There's a girl at work who will roll her chair to the fax machine from her desk. The fax is literally on the other side of her desk against the wall. Out of curiosity one day I counted the steps it would take her one way.
10 fucking steps one way.
The lazy cuntrag can't walk 20 steps to get a piece of paper.
But hey, she drinks Coke zero. So, that helps. Right?
Want to get into rock climbing soon too, and maybe mountaineering one day.
I've always lifted, but then I got into powerlifting and got fat because I was too caught up in getting stronger I didn't want to lose muh gainz from under eating. Now I'm more concerned with fitness to do the things I enjoy, so more cardio now and circuit training for my resistance work.
I don't really have an off season for either of my /out/ activities because stalking sambar is year round here, and the weather goes from 40C in summer to -2C in winter but as long as you gear accordingly it's fine any day.
Start climbing, do longer/multi day hikes, lose more weight, get as fit as I can be. I'm not overly worried about the aesthetic thing, I'd be happy around 15% bf, just hate what I let myself become.
All calorie counts are off by at least 15%, some maybe 40%, up OR down, depending on the food, and they do not account for the cost of digesting the food.
So a food might be high in calories, but actually yield way less because it takes more energy to break down.
This is one of the many reasons soda is so bad; it costs so little to digest
>decide to get scientific about backpacking food
>make spreadsheet of calorie counts, macros, and weight
>sunflower seeds is the winner in calories/gm
>leave the trailhead with lots of sunflower seeds and brotein powder
>shit my pants on the second day
>stop eating brotein powder
>first good solid poop
>tons of undigested sunflower seed bits
Calorie counts are significantly flawed in the way they are determined. My body is not a bomb calorimeter and I don’t combust sunflower seeds to completion
The calorie counts for exercise are similarly flawed.
Sure use guidelines, it’s all we have, but you really need to figure out what works best for you through trial and error.
>Calorie counts for exercises are similarly flawed
I am going to have to disagree, measurements of cellular respiration are very unlikely to be inaccurate and they can and have been used to establish calorie expenditure given how much work is being done.
Climbing, hiking, wakeboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding
Cardio and weights at the gym
when is off season? Riding by bike to the office? Taking the stairs up to 4 floors? Short sprint up the stairs instead of taking the escalator?
Stay in shape as I am. Try new things like fixed rope, mountain climbing.
It is all about metabolism, so move a lot and even eat and drink a lot. It helps keeping your metabolism up and working.
Walk at least 2 hours every week day
Swimming on weekends if I feel like it. That's about it really. Seems to do me fine. Always prefers veggies and lean meat/fish and hated soda and such so diets never really been a problwm
Can any of you please post some body shots?
Just to get a look at our /out demographic and to gauge which pastimes produce which physiques.
I do running and hiking, as well as fairly regular physical work in the bush. Looking to get into climbing. While not /out it's gymnastics.
>While not /out it's gymnastics
this is gymnastics
>no qt bouldering euro champion gf
you could keep some of that chalk next to the bed >:]
My fav out thing to do is long distance hunting hikes. So I walk maybe 100 - 150 km and have quite heavy gear with me. About 35 kilos in total because of the guns and shit. Pic related.
Carrying this is hard work. During off season I mostly do deadlift, squat and OHP. Strong core and shoulders are the most important muscles imo.
