Olympic (and any level of competition) resting heart rates are highly dependent upon sport. Most of the rowers I coach are below 50 for RHR whereas most of the throwers and lifters I coach are above 65 on avg. My resting heart rate was 42 when I rowed/cycled, and it's slowly edged upwards into the mid 60's as I've moved away from competition in those sports.

Hi!

I try to go to the gym 4-5 days a week. Each day focusing on one main muscle group. I like doing squats almost every time too though.
Trying to put on some muscle mass and increase my strength.

Everyday, I workout in the morning about 45 minutes doing weight lifting. Using a 5X5 strength training routine. On rest days, I just hit the treadmill for 45 minutes at maximum incline. 2nd workout in the evening, I hop on the treadmill for 45 minutes at maximum incline again. Twice a week I also do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in an early morning class in addition to my usual routine. This is all scheduled around my full-time work schedule, so usually at the end of my days, I'm pretty much passing out the moment my head hits the pillow.

I mostly follow the anime opening/closing program. That is, if I'm marathoning an anime, I exercise during its opening and closing sequences. The music (especially for openings) is usually intense, which encourages me to exercise faster. It's usually squats, pushups, situps, curls, etc, but I pick more or less at random what to do.

Not much noticeable difference 2-3 weeks in, but it's more to keep in shape than to bulk up or slim down.

Very low intensity, but high enough that I could feel things changing.

Diet was my usual, eat when I get hungry, try to keep a balance of carbs, proteins, veggies, etc.

I use the "rely-on-my-metabolism" method. It probably won't last too many more years...

Oh really? That's pretty informative. I was training at 98% of my maximum heart rate for over a year, 3-4 times a week. It's dropped down to 74% now though when it's twice as intense and three times as long as when I started. Unlike most people though, adaptation doesn't horrify me, my training is specific and I have no reason to deviate from it. Just keep pushin'.

I've used P90x before and it is pretty awesome. I didn't finish the 90 days because of an injury (unrelated to the excercise). My friend who did finish the 90 days had great results. He took the diet seriously; I didn't but was still happy with the way things were going. P90x can be kind of intense, and I haven't worked my strength back up to where I'd be comfortable going all out it again yet. But apparently they have a less intense version too. Honestly I think any routine you do for 90 days will give results, but the p90x guy is a fun motivator.

I do Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 for powerlifting. My goal is to be Shrek one day. If not Shrek, then maybe a big green swamp bear.

Going to start doing cardio again soon and maybe start a cut.

Right now I'm only lifting with some calisthenics and cardio. Currently my regime consists of:

Monday: Arms,HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)
Tuesday: Abs,Chest,HIIT
Wednesday: HIIT
Thursday: Abs,Back,HIIT
Friday: Shoulders,HIIT
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Abs,Legs

Since I switched from maintenance to fat burn a couple days ago, I'm eating around 2,345 cals a day. My full macros are:

Cals: 2345
Carbs: 263.3
Protein: 170
Fat: 68
Fiber: 34-43

I should reach my goal of single digit body fat percentage in about 3-4 weeks.

Once I start bulking around mid-summer, I'll up my cals to about 3,040 and the rest of my macros as well as in-lift intensity. I'm what you would call a nutrition and fitness freak so if anyone needs any tips or advice in terms of muscle gain,maintenance,or general weight/fat loss just message me or reply here.
