    Alright, I'm starting an new workout program that my advisor had given to me and I wanted to get some advice. I'm a ballroom dancer and Zumba instructor so I would really like to lean down and build up my endurance for when I'm out on the floor. I also would like to tone up more. My advisor knows how much I like to swim so he suggested this:
    Mondays:
    Swim and Yoga
    Tuesdays:
    Run and Chest/Triceps/Shoulder
    Wednesday:
    Swim and Lower Body
    Thursday:
    Run and Back/Biceps/Shoulders
    Fridays
    Swim and Yoga
    Weekends Off

    I have until January before I start competiting with my dance partner and I just wanted any advice on if this is a good way to tone and lean. Thanks fellas.

    Looks good to me [but what do I know?[ not much]] icon_smile.gif


    but OT

    Is Zumba good for guys? I've been seeing it around a lot recently. I've thought about giving it a try [I love to dance] but I'm not sure I'd really get anything out of it. It's just a fun twist on cardio right?

    hi,
    everyone There are many ways to define body image. It is the three dimensional concept of one's self, recorded in the cortex by perception of ever-changing body postures, and constantly changing with them. The subjective concept of one's physical appearance based on self-observation and the reaction of others way use see nose right scam or "The mental representation one has of oneself which gradually develops in each individual." Body image is not a factual reality; rather it is a perception of on self based on outside stimuli. It is more a factor of self-esteem than beauty, more a factor of love of self rather than self criticism.
    thanks

    Zumba is wonderful for guys because it works the entire body. It is cardio with a fun twist that helps you in the clubs. lol. And there are many types of Zumba, there is Zumba toning, Zumba Aqua, een Zumba for kids. I'd say definitely give it a shot. Thank you for your advice. I appreciate it. I really want to look good on the dance floor.

    I'm on a tone/lean routine for 3 years. It's 50-80 percent diet (the older you are, the diet is more important,... also genetic factor). Are you using the following:

    1. psyllium husk for toxins/waste absorbent?
    2. cinnamon for sugar control
    3. omega-3 for cleaning out bad cholesterol
    4. 40-60 percent raw produce in the diet.
    5. very very small amount of processed food in the diet. use only non-fat processed food, non-fat breads, non-fat pasta sauce, etc.
    6. Use ONLY good fats, i.e. avocado, tahini, flax oil.
    7. Alkalize your body - see http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1174317

    Good luck.
