Working out and cosplay

Postby MinaUchiha2 » Wed Jun 22, 2011 10:21 am

So who's getting ready to start working out for cosplay? Or just working out in general? I know we used to have a thread like this so I figured it might be good to have it back! ^^

I'm working out and watching what I eat already, but that's for more of health than cosplay but cosplay added to my want to. XD

Anime - Entertaining and both motivation

Ever Since Animazement 2009 I've been dropping pounds. So far around 80 lbs I've lost, all with dreams to one day cosplay Ace from One Piece.

@Quick: Man I believe in you, I know you can get taller!
AZ 2008: I... I was... an L... (Feel the shame..)
AZ 2009: Roy Mustang (Rockin with Armstrong!)
AZ 2010: Suigetsu (Fear the Giant Sword!)

AZ 2012: Don't know yet.. (Might retire the sword)

Thanks for that. I think I need to be at least Taller then my Older Brother and my Dad for me to pull off Chad {Right now I'm almost Taller then both of them} So I should be able too soon.

I was in the process of losing weight for health reasons already, but in the long run it's also going to help my cosplay. Currently working on losing a grand total of 50 pounds. Off to a bit of a slow start, but getting there bit by bit.

Same here. ^^ And hey our totals we hope to lose are really close~! And hey it's better to start slow than fast, so your body has a chance to ajust instead of just making it panic. XD

Have been doing a little of this and that, hiking/walking, push-ups, etc, but I'm looking int Crossfit lately. Focuses on usable fitness, not running marathons or bench pressing your body weight. Also would make a good base if I wanted to try a little parkour.

I've lost a couple pounds by eating less and drinking better. I'll probably start working out more during the school year since our awesome fitness center is free for students.

I'm trying to drop a few pounds,
I'm doing an Alice Liddel (heart no kuni no alice) cosplay and I don't wanna be chubs! /);3;(/
But its also for health reasons...

And the promise of one day being just the right size for a Ciel Phantomhive cosplay ;3;

You know what. Except for the sunburn and the tank and a half of gas, going to the beach is GREAT exercise. I seriously didn't stop going for 2 days straight, and my diet was fairly healthy and well balanced. Still sore though. :D

I've gone back to my 2-300 crunches a day to tone my stomach a bit for fem!America... I can't really pass it off anymore with my bit of flab when I'm wearing something that shows my stomach. /lazy

Went and bought heavier weights and the next level DVD I wanted to. <3 I was starting to get to comfy with the workout so time to bump it up a bit. Was gonna get the 3 mile DVD since the 2 mile felt to easy but there was a better deal on The Biggest Loser DVD they had, it's got more than the other so woot.

Yeah, I hit the gym regularly a year ago for my Grey Fullbuster cosplay, but I think I'm going to go back just as habit.

I really need to get back in shape. I can do strength like no ones business. I can walk/hike for hours if I had the time. Cardio is trying to kill me though, I got next to no wind.

I am sloooooowly losing but I am definitely seeing some progress and toning up, I really need to be in shape for this 2012 considering I am trying my hand and more sexier cosplays ^^ but I am drinking more water and changing my eating habits, on my days off I try to exercise so I am making some progress, if I can make it last until AZ I will be good to go ^w^b
