Gay Christian Online - Athletics - My Athletic Life HOME

firmly believe we are triune, just like God. God is Father, Son, and Spirit. We are Spirit, Soul, and Body. We often devote our lives to our soul and body, forgetting the spirit. But, those of us who are Gay or Lesbian Christians, we sometimes forget the body, too. All three must be in balance. So, make sure your body is as healthy as your spirit and your soul.

eople write me now and then and complain about "certain pictures" on the website, pictures of people, and pictures of ME "supposedly" unclothed. They think it is not Christian, or sinful, and I have a problem. I remind them WHY these pictures appear. The photographs used here relate to the topic discussed, to show the muscle groups involved, or to show athletic development. People see what they see; I sometimes believe their objections actually reveal their true hearts. So, I remind you, too, to have a proper and healthy perspective on art and photography, for rarely are they the problem; instead, the problem lies in the heart of the viewer.

ave fun. Be careful. I am not responsible for your health or work out. Consult with a physician before beginning any exercise program.

As a Gay Christian, you get out what you put in your workouts. You'll learn what your body can and cannot do, what it will be stubborn about, when it is willing to give in to your will and go beyond its preconceived abilities. Time and patience are your friends, and your frustrations. Set goals but make them small steps and attainable, and allow time for them to come to pass. Recognize you'll reach occasional plateaus, or peaks, when it seems like your body isn't making as much progress or as fast as in the past. Wait them out, work through them. Change your patterns, days, or frequencies regularly to break boredom, and break through plateaus.

Simple Tips to Maximize Your Work Out

Warm Up

ever work out without first warming up, and stretching. If you are only doing cardio exercise, you still need to warm up, go at a slower pace for a few minutes, and then move up to your program.

Gay Christian Athletics - Chest Development

Your muscles won't grow if they are not warmed up. Warming up pumps fuel, fluids, and oxygen to your muscles.

Warm up first with a few stretches. Stretch the areas you will be working that day. ALWAYS stretch BEFORE you work out; there is less chance of injury if you do.Gay Christian Athletics - Stretch Your Back Before Your Work On Your Back

Then get on a cardio exercise machine or activity. The point here is not burning calories, but to warm up. Use the exercise equipment with little resistance, or do the activity lightly.

Average length for warm up is eight to twelve minutes for a beginner. Your speed should be faster than your average pace. You know you're done and ready to work out when you are warm. After you exercise for a while, your body will adjust to that level and rate. You will have to increase the level, resistance, and time if you are an intermediate or advanced athlete to warm up.Gay Christian Athletics - Always Warm Up Before Lifting Weights

Cardio Exercises

ardio Exercise Machines are designed to burn calories. Yes, you will also be working and developing your leg and arm muscles, but the goal is calories. Basic cardio exercises are done either on the bicycle, treadmill, stair-step machine, a machine that imitate skiing, or an elliptical machine (looks like you are bicycling standing up). You should plan on at least 30-35 minutes as a beginner, 45 for intermediate and advanced.

Gay Christian Athletics - Butt Development

Whichever you choose, begin briefly with a warm up period, and always end with a "cool down" period, at a slower pace to return your pulse and breathing to resting rate.

Goal to burn between 200-500 calories. 500 calories is just about equal to a McDonald's Big Mac Sandwich, which you shouldn't be eating often anymore anyway, or equal to burning almost one quarter of the daily calories your body needs when doing nothing.

Gay Christian Athletics - Chest and Stomach Development

If you are low in body fat, then limit your cardio exercises. They're good exercise for your heart and body, but if you have little fat, you'll end up burning muscle, not a good thing. In your case, you'll want to exercise for less time, and burn fewer calories.

Bicycle

ide a stationary bicycle for 30 minutes as a beginner, and burn an average of 80-100 calories. An intermediate or advanced athlete will have to significantly raise the pace and resistance level to burn more. The bicycle is a good warm up exercise, but the least of all cardio machines for burning calories. A stationary bicycle will use your leg muscles, but do very little for your upper body.

Treadmill

alk a treadmill for 30 minutes as a beginner, and burn an average of 100-300 calories. Increase the speed and level as an intermediate or advanced athlete and you can burn an average of 200-400 calories. One of the best forms of exercise on the treadmill is to alternate between fast paced walking and sprinting/running. In this pattern you fast walk for several minutes, then run, then walk, then run. If you like to run or jog, you can on the treadmill.

Watch your knees in using the treadmill, especially if sprinting, running, or jogging, because you put a lot of pressure on them with each step. When using the treadmill, move those arms, do not hold on to the machine. Use your whole body.Gay Christian Athletics - Use The Treadmill Correctly To Avoid Injury

Stair-step, Skiing, Elliptical

o burn the big calories, head to these machines. In 30 minutes, as a beginner, you can burn up to 350 calories, advanced up to 500 calories.

Gay Christian Athletics - Butt Development

The stair-step puts a lot of pressure on your knees; elliptical the least.

Don't hold on to the machines; keep your arms free and moving, using your whole body.

Other

ther forms of cardio exercise are classes, such as aerobics, jazzercise, some forms of yoga, etc. During an average one-hour class, you can burn equal to or more calories than from an exercise machine.
