I have never really lifted any weights, but I ride a bicycle daily (my old bike's wheel bearing was broken so the rear tire was permanently touching the brakes) and I train Muay Thai, BJJ and MMA. I should get on a leg press machine to see what I can do, but at my old job (Kelloggs factory) I put my back against the wall and pushed a 600kg crate full of cereal with absolute ease. Obviously I can't lift 600kgs with my legs but I think they are very strong. I also used to do 200 hindu squats per day, I don't anymore because i'm in Thailand and the training is very hard on the body as is.

Riding bicycle lol. Try lifting weights. For upper body, you do not need weights. But for strong legs, you need weights.

I would say the complete opposite.

You can train your legs with cycling, running etc etc. You will put muscle on. You would struggle to put on much size in your upper body without weights IMO.


Cycling is one of the best things you can do to build your legs.

Proud German i've never lifted weights in my life but I guarantee you'd feel the thunder from my low kicks, gotta be doing something right

Have you ever tried riding a bicycle uphill with 1/2 of the brakes on, while on a deadline to get to work? It's like a sweat shower. I'm so lucky I don't have bad b.o

I'm supposing you normally do strong push ups, so nothing organized against you it just seems like a awful way for your university to evaluate. I'm not sure how real this is but I've observed if you can regular your body weight 10 periods without much problems that you're about regular for you're dimension.......

I'm not sure how true this is but I've heard if you can bench your body weight 10 times without much difficulty that you're about average for you're size, I don't do weight training(I really should) but it seems like you're doing pretty good.

By chance how long before a run do you eat / how much water do you drink while running.As far as being athletic goes puking after a 5k is pretty bad but if you exercise often I think the issue might be that you don't drink enough before you run so your too dehydrated during the run leading you to drink too much during it.
If you don't already start more drinking water the night before you run until about an hour before and only sip on the water during the run.
Exactly, I could do 500 pushups a minute if it was only moving an inch back and forth. There is no way 85 full stretch and nose touch to the ground pushups with a flat back can be done in a minute. Even if a guy basically flopped back to the ground from a fully outstretched pushup, it would take more than half a sec with gravity.

Anyway, OP you definitely seem in good shape for your age, so good luck
