ShiaChat Exercises! [OFFICIAL THREAD]

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Need your urgent support regarding my fitness goal. I've got 6 weeks left and have to reduce a bit of body-fat percentage. While I am doing my best I thought of harnessing the power of community support.

So basically the idea is for us to challenge and support one another. My request to you is to tag me in this thread with motivating quotes/messages/soldier-instructions and in return I'll do either 10 Push ups or 10 Squats. And if you're also looking for some support and reason to become active again, you can join the club by requesting members to tag/motivate you too. It's a win-win!

My Fitness goal: 18% body fat.

Currently: 22% body fat.

Thank you and here's something to get every one motivated (halal police, for the love of God, please stay away. The context is motivation and fitness. No one shall InshaAllah fear falling into sin):

Go @Abbas.!

I want to improve strength and endurance and lose the "baby belly", but those are weak and unspecific ideas rather than good goals. 

Tag me and I'll do either 10 table pushups, or run up a flight of stairs.

I'd appreciate some help with a measurable and specific set of fitness goals suitable for a full-time mom who hardly gets to sit for 10 continuous minutes except while feeding the baby or sleeping.

Thx! I think that if you are already active during the day, all you need is a good realistic and a believable diet plan. I would suggest you to calculate the number of calories you will burn if you were to stay in bed all day (calculate from the link below). Then try to keep your average daily calorie intake less than or equal to this figure. Rest is plain maths. The more calorie deficit the more you lose weight. Stick to organic food and reduce processed and junk food. Of course you can add lil bit of bonus activities to your daily routine such as being tagged several times a day and running up and down the stairs :wOOt: So let's get going soldier. I tags ye @notme Report to me when your done!

You can do it!

Thank you. Done! But this is just the beginning sis. You better keep motivating me on a regular basis.

Push ups burn calories? I didn't know. Jog a mile each morning. Avoid all food which contains (1) sugar (2) oil (3) starch. The result will be a slim Abbas within days.

I generally do circuit training and have a disciplined diet plan. I had to resort to these at-home activities cz I have a twisted ankle and time is flying. Daily calorie deficit is 1000 per day so all is good. Just need words of wisdom and motivation coming from you guys. thx

By being physically fit, you are helping yourself by preparing for Imam Mahdi a.s.

I'm sorry if I sound corny, but here goes.

Get those reps in..you never know when some anti-islamic thugs might try to get the beat on you, especially if you live in the city.

The only kind of pain i enjoy feeling is the destruction and reparation of muscle fibers..it makes me feel good that I've done good for my body.

There's no doubt many of us here would stop making mutah threads and teary-eyed posts complaining about loneliness and lack of confidence if we'd make it a point to hit the gym routinely.

I promise to make some more so that I can see you all do well. Oh, and don't forget to eat leaves and fruits.

It's been a year since i've dropped soda. I still eat rather poorly but my face isn't as pudgy anymore. My jawline is starting to get sharper too. Starting to feel the ladies eyeing me more often :)

Did 20 mints on treadmil today. Better than the previous 10 mints. Heart rate reached 160 plus before I went totally breathless. The pain on my ankle faded after the stretching exercises. Maybe the day I do 3 hours of excersise without turning dizzy is coming!

 

@Abbas. (I hope tags work through mobile).

push UPS will make you build muscles. Do some cycling or running to burn belly fats, see how much dad space there is in your lungs.

Thanks !  Starting my morning with 30 Push Ups

Here's a tag for you @blu115 to push your limit for the day. Good luck and don't forget to report back with your progress.

Good job Chaotic. I like running as a good stress release. Currently sticking to basic at-home workouts cz of the sprained ankle

Here's a tag @Chaotic Muslem for you to push your limit from 20 minutes to 25 !! Look forward to hearing from your sore soul

@Abbas. with utmost regret I am informing you that I won't be able to give you 20, 10 or for that matter any number of push ups. :sorry2: It's not that I didn't  try, I did try ... very hard, I have been googling inspirational quotes  and videos since yesterday but......................

...........my faith keeps me from posting them here. 

see this hadiths: 

That you desire for others what you desire for yourself and do not desire for others what you do not desire for yourself" (Musnad Ahmed).

None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself. [Bukharee & Muslim]

Since I am a faithful muslima who believes body fat deposits are a thing to be loved and have no desire to do push ups myself  I cannot 'desire' them for you.

Does this ^ mean minus 20 pushups??? :grin:

    • Need to explain the reason of this wiki and Islam. My way of thinking : How do we sure/certain that Iblis has knowledge of God perfectly when he/Iblis disobey God's order to bow.
    • Salaam Alaykum Brother Good for your sister that has such a good brother. It is very important to observe Hijab and Islamic dress code. First of all, don't expect your sister to change her behaviour in one night. This process takes months, or maybe one or two years, so be patient. Never get angry on this because it only ruins your previous effort. Always calm and patient. Second, don't expect your sister to be nice to you when you talk about Hijab with her. She probably disrespects you or say inappropriate words, you MUST be quiet if it happens. Apparently your mother is concerned about this. It's a good thing that you are not alone. Observing Islamic dress code is very very gradual process. Your mother and you should be together and patient. Try to be more respectful to your sister and help her as much as you can. Let her think that you always support her. Your mother should also show observation in this matter. Your sister should see that your mother doesn't wear any kind of cloth. For example, when your mother and you and your sister are shopping, your mother should say(loudly so that your sister hears that), I don't like this dress. It's too short or tight and I'm Muslim. Never use force or fighting to make her dress islamically. Let her to understand this herself. Remember be kinder and more patient. Do as much favor as you can for your sister. Tell your mother to do the same. Gradually you can start talking with your sister in person about Hijab. The key is that she should first TRUST you that you are saying that just for help and your love as her brother.
    • Over the last 40 years, we have seen an increase in income inequality, especially in the US, with wages stagnating for a large majority of the population, but profits for corporations continuing to grow exponentially, this was obviously dealt a blow in the financial crisis, but the mechanisms in place to fix the crisis largely continued to promote neoliberal, state capitalism. The federal reserve, which I believe is criticised unfairly is largely a mechanism in place to fix problems within a very highly flawed system. You need a body that has to regulate banks and interest rates, otherwise you would have a situation that is even worse, where banks would continually just collude and set rates in a way that benefits them. The problem however is that, the Fed's mechanisms only empower the same system that has done damage to so many people's lives. By promoting bank bailouts, which then just give the bank the insurance that they can continue to do whatever they want, and the government will just continue to bail them out, they have no much incentive to act differently. Financial reform and regulation have been implemented since the financial crisis but these aren't enough, and the bailouts only led to bank CEOs giving themselves higher bonuses. But the question is how do you fix the system? If you don't bail the banks out, you leave millions unemployed, you make small business reliant on banks for short-term financing shut down. If you don't print money and you don't increase the deficit, you get rid of the few ways in a flawed economic system to boost the economy. So how do you fix it? More regulation? Do you make the Federal Open Market Committee meetings more public, but then that just allows political influence and gives more power to a very corrupt congress to make decisions, when you can't exactly trust them either? There have been attempts to make other currency systems like bitcoin, but on a national level what is a good solution? To centralise the banks completely would be a good idea but its just giving power to corrupt lawmakers who are bought by corporate interests. 
    • I think an important question that nobodies asked is what kind of relationship do you have with your sister?  If you're not super close and just come out of nowhere with all these rules shes going to rebel and your parents could get involved- telling you to stay out of it. If this happens- she might think its okay because her parents are defending her.  If you're not close, then maybe this is an opportunity to be. Try and be really open and non judgemental and find out why she doesn't wish to observe hijab. It may just be down to ignorance: she simply doesn't know its importance in islam. You'd be surprised what kind of interesting conversations you'd have.  My brothers beliefs are fairly different to mine and fairly often we have interesting discussions/debates about all kinds of topics. He's also very open minded so I feel reassurance/comfort if I ever need to ask advice or information about a certain topic.
