    I had my annual gym MOT today.

    It's revealed a few things.

    1. I should lose approx 1 stone (says my PT), mostly in body fat to drop my BMI and body fat %

    2. My core needs activating - especially my glutes and lower back which are not firing as they should and in case of my glutes weak

    3. I have tight hamstrings and calves which ..

    4. has led to a wierd running gait: landing on the balls of my feet and toes and springing forward from there rather than heal and toe. The "springing forward" is leading to lower back pain as is the "stockyness" of my upper body. Hence needing to stretch out my hamstrings and calves, strengthen and activate my core and lose the excess pounds.

    The lowets body fat % I ahve had is 12% and I felt and looked ill. If I can drop it to 15% I'll be a happy man. icon_smile.gif

    So yeah...tips/hints etc gratefullly received.

    (Alas! none of my friends believe Ive been told to lose weight as they think I am the fittest person they know...wellI am....but they mostly dont exercise due to being geeks and a tendancy towards skeletal or the spheroidal......)

    Just to reiterate what you said, so your goal is to lower your bodyfat% while keeping on muscle right?

    I give you some weight loss tips:-

    Use less fat foods and oily items,
    eat fruits and vegetables,
    use water mostly in a day about 8 to 10 glasses,
    do exercise for 30 mints and also go on walk,
    don't take rest after eating.

    I would completely agree with everything you said, in fact this is perfect advice. But thirdy minutes is what is advised to avoid weight gain over time in healthy individuals. I would recommend 90 minutes per day. I know it seems like a lot, but losing weight is tough.
