The Perfect Fit For Fitness

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. Here are some more tips for #menofsize in that are doing their best to become healthy. (We will never be small in our lives, so we have to live our best lives.)Going to the gym or jogging around the block is simple if you are slim and sleek. As a big and tall man, it can be much trickier. Working out means having the right clothes for the job or else you will be uncomfortable and exercise less. Unfortunately, big guys don’t have the same choices as everyone else because, well, no one caters to giants! Still, exercise is an essential part of keeping healthy, so you have to find a solution. The good news, fellas, is that there are four quick fixes underneath. All you have to do is have a read and keep the following in mind.

 

Stretch Over Tailored

 

Everyone wants to look their best while they exercise. Sure, it isn’t a fashion show but you are on display so it’s nice to dress to impress. The problem is that fitted clothes aren’t brilliant for big people. Because they are tight, it can feel as if you are about to bust out of the seams. As a rule, stretchy yoga tops and pants are much better for gym-goers and athletes because they are flexible. Or, you can wear loose-fitted tops and pants and so that you have extra room to breathe.

Shop Smart

Big men know the average store doesn’t have clothes which fit, so there’s no point wasting time. Yes, it would be awesome if Nike started to take the plight of big and tall people seriously, but that has yet to happen. Therefore, it’s quicker and cheaper to shop at the places that you know will be able to help. Kohl’s and JCPenney are two excellent places to start, as is Amazon and eBay. There are companies such as Large Lad and Bad Rhino also have some great athletic wear.  For specialist equipment, Champion has a wide range of athletic apparel to choose from while Under Armor has a great variety of items. The worm is slowing turning, guys.

Short Shorts

 

Are you a gym junkie? If the answer is yes, it can make getting dressed far easier. Gyms are inside, which means they are warm and balmy. The temperature outside may be below freezing, but that doesn’t matter when you have shelter. Therefore, there’s no need to wear sweatpants which are too tight. Instead, opt for shorts that have an element of give and allow you to work out unobstructed. The same goes for t-shirts. Rather than a long-sleeved underlayer, try a vest. Anyone who exercises outside will freeze to death, but gym members will be perfectly relaxed.

 

Try Before You Buy 

 

Lots of manufacturers say they offer big and tall menswear but bend the truth. When you wear it for the first time, it feels as if it was made for guys who are smaller than average. Okay, you can take it back, but it’s a hassle and doesn’t help the situation. The only thing you can do is to test drive it before heading to the checkout. Simply slipping on gym clothes is a perfect way to make sure they fit and are comfy. You should always do this before you buy from a new store or supplier.

Five Poor Ways To Build Muscle- The Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

To be honest, I am a novice when it comes to fitness. I am happy to admit that I am learning. It is important as a man of size, especially in fitness to become as knowledgeable as possible. I also recognize the importance of fitness.  There are lots of different ways to build muscle, but not all of them are healthy. If you’ve been trying to bulk up, here are a few strategies that you should avoid like the plague along with some advice on what you should do instead.

 

Dirty Bulking

 

In order to repair and build your muscles after a workout, you need to consume more calories each day. Too many people think that this gives them a license to pig out on junk food. Whilst this junk food is full of calories that could help you to bulk up at first, in the long run, you could find that you’re building more fat than muscle. This food also isn’t good for you heart and arteries and could cause cardiovascular problems in the future including strokes and heart attacks. You’re far better off trying a diet such as this Jason Ferruggia meal plan that uses natural fats and unrefined carbs.

 

Starving Yourself

People that are overweight and looking to build muscle may attempt to starve themselves whilst working out. Most commonly this will fail, resulting in weight loss but no muscle gain. In other cases it may work – the few calories you’re getting could be going into muscle repair, however, this could result in the rest of your body not getting the nutrients it needs. Starving yourself should never be the solution. You’re better off keeping your calorie intake high, but eating more healthy calories and limiting fat.

Singling out muscles

If you’re trying to focus on your arms or your chest, it’s important to still exercise other muscle groups. Singling out certain muscles won’t just lead to a lack of symmetry – it could put a strain on joints and ligaments. The most common and joked about an example of this is focusing wholly on upper body strength and not the legs. By skipping leg day, you could actually damage your hips and knees as your legs won’t be strong enough to support your upper body.    

 

Taking Steroids

 

Taking steroids isn’t just cheating. Whilst these drugs do help you to build muscle, they can also have negative health side effects. They’ve been commonly linked to causing infertility and insomnia, as well as causing people to take on features of the opposite gender. Women have been known to grow more body hair and have lower voices, whilst mean have been known to develop breast tissue. Steroid abuse is becoming increasingly more frowned upon with bodybuilding bloggers such as Erny Peibst outing and shaming culprits who turn to steroids. You’re far better off naturally building muscle – it’s much harder, but you won’t have to deal with the side effects and it will be more mentally rewarding rather than something you’re secretly ashamed of.  

 

Relying on supplements

 

Supplements such as creatine and protein shakes can help you build muscle. However, relying too heavily on them can have side effects. Not only is it more expensive than natural dieting, you could cause overdoses of certain nutrients. Vitamin E is found in many bodybuilding supplements and less so in natural foods – whilst it can help with bodybuilding, it could also have the side effect of thinning the blood if you consume too much. Take supplements in moderation and don’t use them wholly as an alternative to dieting.

Would You Give Boot Camps A Try?- Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Fitness In A BIG Way

Kavah King for The Gentlemen’s Curb

I am Thinking To Try A Boot Camp…

Trying to get healthy isn’t easy, especially as a man of size. Here at The Gentlemen’s Curb, we do our best to encourage men of size to try to make healthier choices. We will never be small, but here are some tips to stay healthy. One of the biggest challenges we face is boredom. This is why it is important to switch up your workout regularly to make sure you don’t lose motivation. If you have never experienced a fitness boot camp before, this is definitely something you should give a try. Keep reading to discover the reasons to sign up for a fitness boot camp today.

  • It’s the closest thing you’ll get to a military workout – If you have always had dreams of making it in the military, or this type of thing simply excites you, a boot camp is the closest thing you will get to the real deal. You can join boot camps that are based on military-style workouts. All you need is some cheap survival gear, and you are good to go. These themed boot camps are exceptionally challenging, but they are a lot of fun.
  • Boot camp workouts are a lot of fun – Attending a boot camp will bring some variety to your workouts. You can switch things up with exercise-based games and a completely different workout environment. This will be a lot more exciting than your standard gym routine.
  • They teach discipline – You will have a fitness coach that is shouting instructions throughout. You will need to push yourself harder than you ever have before. Quitting is not an option. If you are someone that gives up easily, a boot camp is one of the best ways to ensure you learn about discipline and never giving up.
  • They’re ideal if you are competitive – Going to the gym isn’t exactly competitive unless you are mentally competing with the guy next to you. However, a boot camp environment introduces competition to the fitness format. If you have the innate desire to outdo everyone else, this will enable you to get better results from your workout, as you will be in an environment that you thrive in.
  • Get better results in a shorter period of time – You are going to pack a lot of work into a short period of time by taking a boot camp. You will burn calories at an advanced rate because your instructor will keep things moving. Many different types of training are incorporated into each session, ranging from cardio to resistance.
  • Your confidence will take a boost – If you can tackle a boot camp workout, you can take on anything. By the end of your camp, you will feel like a new person. This confidence boost will give you the kick you need to achieve your fitness goals.

As you can see, there are many different reasons why you should sign up for a fitness boot camp. This is one of the best ways to give your health and fitness levels a boost and to ensure that you remain interested and engaged in terms of reaching your fitness goals. Plus, if you’re someone who doesn’t stick to your workout routine as you should, a boot camp will make sure you do!

How To Get Healthier Fast!- The Gentlemen’s Curb Big And Tall Influencer

How To Get Healthier Fast

We all have different goals, aspirations, and plans. We are all built different and have different body types. After some research, The Gentlemen’s Curb put together some exercises to help you drop some weight quickly. I am aware some of us including myself have different body types and we will never have the “conventional look,” but these exercises will help your heart to beat and help your overall health. Below are some sports that deliver the best results, look no further, this article is for you. Read on to find out which sports disciplines are the best for your over health.

Martial arts

Based on combat practices, martial arts can be used in self-defense or for mental and spiritual development reasons. The sport emerged in Europe as early as the 1550s, earlier than the 1550’s if the continent of Asia is included, and it translates from Latin as literally “arts of Mars”, the latter being the Roman God of War. Karate and a number of other martial arts offer a great deal of physical and mental benefits to your body, these ranging from better posture and higher stamina to improved conditioning and greater agility. You can start training right after investing in some appropriate gear!

Cycling

With cycling nowadays being one of the preferred forms of a commute for many citizens around the world, it shouldn’t be difficult to include it in your fitness routine. This aerobic activity will get your heart, blood vessels and lungs going and by breathing better, you will improve your general fitness levels. If you decide to start pedaling, not only will you become healthier and sleep more profoundly, but you will also become better at pretty much every sport around due to the fact that, as a study suggested, aerobic endurance training makes you better at sports like soccer. The safety hazard that traffic poses to cyclists cannot be overlooked, however, and as a result of this, more and more riders are investing in things like a solid helmet. It would also be wise to have the number of these bicycle accident solicitors at hand just in case.

 

Swimming

 

Swimming, as you can probably imagine, offers a workout like no other sport. The activity form makes you use all the muscles in your body and exercising in water means you have to work harder, which is all extremely beneficial to the body. Swimming not only improves muscle definition and strength, it also helps build up bone mass and reduce inflammation. For an improved body condition and provided you have no existing injuries (if you do, it’s always better to check with a professional), swimming three times a week for up to 30 minutes each would be the ideal scenario. Invest in some goggles for extra clarity under water.

 

The above sports are a great way for you to tone your body. Get properly checked by a doctor before trying any of these activities regularly, however, in order to ensure you are fit for training. It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Now that the days are getting colder, the nights longer and the food is becoming more and more stodgy: it can be difficult, to say the least, to keep ourselves fit and healthy. If the thought of waking up at 6 am and getting out of the house for a run is making you feel dread, then you’re are not alone. No one wants to exercise in the winter; as humans, we hibernate in our homes during the colder months and stock up on plenty of warming foods and drinks. However, if you do want to keep yourself motivated to stay fit, you might want to look at a few ways of making your exercise more fun. I will probably keep going outside in New York City playgrounds.

Switch Teams

If you play for a sports team or you simply like to go and have a kick-about with your friends once a week, why not switch things up next time and change the team you play for? It’s a small shift in your routine but it can be exactly what you need to get that adrenaline pumping through your body and that competitive streak to shine through. If you don’t already play a sport like a baseball or a soccer game in your spare time; enlist your friends and look for a local pitch, find a Sports Gear Lab best soccer balls, and get playing. It can be a great way to keep in touch with friends you don’t often see and will also be a way to get that heart pumping and work off your roast dinners.

Kavah King,

Change Your Gym Sessions

If you like to stick to the free-weight section of the gym when you go for your sessions, take the time one day to switch it up and work on the machines instead. Simply changing what activities, you do in the gym will make you feel fresh and more alert because you won’t be going in on autopilot and doing exactly the same moves as usual. It will also benefit you in the fact that different parts of the gym will target different muscles- you may find that you tone up muscles you didn’t even know you could. And don’t forget that the gym is more than weights and machines. Many gyms will have a swimming pool for you to take advantage of, they will have punching bags for you to work off your frustration, and even yoga flow classes to test your balance and stamina. Change it up now and again and you’ll see the benefits. (Trust me, I am learning how to swim myself.)

Try Something New

Take the time to learn something entirely new. It could be dancing, Zumba, a new sport such as squash or even just how to train your muscles in a different way. Our minds can be very fickle, they will get bored after awhile of doing the same things. If you find you are getting bored at the gym, skip the gym and go for a run on the beach- do your burpees in the great wide world and enjoy the fresh air as you do. You don’t have to be confined to four walls.

I am going to definitely try these options myself! If you have a topic to cover, feel free to email us kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

There Are Some Things On My Mind…

As many of you know, I have been on a journey trying to get to my goal weight of 300 pounds. Although I love my size, I think it’s imperative to be as healthy in my size. No, a certain size does not make you healthy. But, I want to make my best effort to me a man of size that is healthy. I want to change many of the perspectives and stereotypes that are damaging to the perception of men of size. We see that there are many athletes that share our structure and are more positive representations than the images and characters placed before us

New Goals!

By frequenting this blog, you may get the idea that I am obsessive at times. Yes, I am one of those weird people that get consumed with a project or a task that I am working on. Because of my weight, I chose to exercise via calisthenics. (I am well into my 300’s, that isn’t a secret.)I figure that I am heavy enough, if I can balance and navigate my weight, then I will be in a better position. It would make me stronger and I would be more comfortable with my body. There was an exercise that I could not do. At first, I felt defeated, but I remembered that we all have to crawl before we walk.

Let’s Walk This Road Together

So, now I am sharing my new goal with you all. I am trying to perform a static hold with one arm! I know that is extremely far fetched because of my size, but that is even more of an incentive to push forward! So, please walk with me! I am going to do my very best to reach this goal. It will be a milestone for me and I hope that I can share it with you. From the photos, you see that I have a looong way to go!

On The Road To 300

Gentlemen’s Curb
A lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

So, as most of you know this is a blog dedicated to men of size. If you call us big and tall, brawn or plus males. I have learned to love my body, especially because it’s my body. Trust and believe it took me a very long time to actually love my body. When you see these videos of me working on my body, I am not showing off in any way. I am showing my vulnerabilities so that other men and women who feel like me can feel comfortable about themselves and do what they want to do. You aren’t “too big” to do certain exercises. My goal weight is to be 300 pounds, although 300 pounds is still heavy from society’s perspective, but who cares? My personal goal is just that. Pardon my rant, there were some things on my mind.

Currently, I am working on an exercise that is extremely difficult from me. It’s an exercise that can be done anywhere. So, if you are working late and can’t make it to the gym, you have options. You can perform this exercise from the comfort of you home. There are so many areas targeted with this one exercise.

  1. Forearms
  2. Triceps
  3. Upper Back 
  4. Core   

 

Yeah, I could hardly do five! But, I am working towards doing more! Every journey starts with a small step. I started off with baby steps apparently.  Let us know what you think of this workout. Tell us how you felt after you tried the workout. Use the hashtag #OnTheRoadTo300 Please leave a comment or email us kavah.king@gentlemensurb.com

Late Night Work On The “Curb.” Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

Too Big For What?

Can a person over 300 pounds do calisthenics? Can a man of size do calisthenics? Can brawn men, big and men and plus men do pull-ups? When I first started to make some changes in my life, I was met with resistance. It started watching a video of some men performing calisthenics on a pull-up bar. I was intrigued! I was impressed. I marveled the way the men and women seemed to suspend their bodies in the air, I marveled at the way the moved their bodies so effortlessly. I felt it would be a great change for me to start working out in the park, instead of all the attention and “coaching” I received in the gym.

Kavah King of The Gentlemen’s Curb

Go Hard Or Go Home.

So the next day, I got my water, I made sure my phone was charged and I walked to the nearest park with fitness apparatuses. I started stretching, I turned my music up and started to work. Well, at least what I thought was work! I tried to perform a pull-up and I couldn’t! I was met with snickers from the other men that worked out in the park. A few of them said to me “big guys like you don’t come out here.” “You should go to the gym.” I felt defeated and I decided to head home. The next day I had a long talk with myself. I charged myself with the thought process that you have to crawl before you walk.

I began with a process that helped my pull-up process, you can review the post here: Too Big For What?Too Big For What Pull-Up 102, and Too Big For What Pull-Up 103.

For all of our readers, your goals aren’t unattainable. We are all at the point where we have to crawl again. When we were born we got a lot of bumps and bruises trying to walk.
