Well Iím about to hit it again and I would like to meet my goal of 100-105 pounds lost by the end of the year. This should be easily doable as long as I stick to it and not get too carried away with all the Holiday parties coming up.
I have a large chest right now and would like to concentrate on making it smaller or defined. There more man boobs then muscle right now and I would like to get rid of them. The next thing is my stomach, even though I have allot of skin there I would still like to loose weight and gain muscle there. The least thing Iím worried about right now is my arms and legs. I still want to work my arms out but Iím not looking to gain muscle real quick until after I have worked out my chest. I would like to gain as much muscle in these areas while maintaining or loosing weight.
For working out I have a set or dumbbells 5-40 #ís, an Olympic size weight bench with all the proper weights and bars, Stationary bike and a workout station with a bunch of miscellanies workouts.
I would like for someone to help me with a workout plan to achieve my described goals above, along with a diet plan if needed, unless I just keep to eating right.
Right now I weigh in at 193-197 and started my diet at 285-289 at the beginning of Jan. Iíve dropped from a 44Ē waist to a 36Ē and from filling a XXL shirt to a M or L.
Any help I would greatly appreciate.
By the way I have done all this with no diet plan nor additives/pills. But if I must take supplements to help me out I will greatly consider them.
As of 11-25-2006 Posted above till now,
I went back up to 210 in a matter of months (4-5) and not doing much. I ran and did weights, more cardio than anything. But my body is so use to doing cardio that isnt doing anything for me. I even tried two adays. The lowest Ive been sence my plateue is 195#, Now I hover between 195-202#'s doing strickly weights and then some cardio after. Been doing this for about a month, two if you count my warm up, to the workout and have noticed a big difference.
Now, what you want to hear and to get to the point.
As of around August, After I figuered my body wasnt doing anything while doing cardio for 6 months anymore, I started focusing on weights. Training, getting to know forms and styles of working out and just getting use to it.
Nothing was really being used for after supplements.
Didnt really know how much they actauly affect you.
I did this for about a month and worked on building my chest/traps/shoulders one day and tri/bi/back the other. This was all doing low weight to work on form and lots of reps, keeping it to about 25 per rep. Not so focused on legs yet (I was close to 300#'s).
Now Ive been intorduced to Muscel Milk, after about two weeks of taking that Ive noticed a difference and ordered more supplements to help me out including Animal Pak, Hot-Rox, NO-Xplode and Muscel Milk at night after work out.
I work out about 6 nights a week, each muscle group 3 times a week. Mixing up the work outs and what I actauly do. Same schedual stated above. Still no legs plan to start soon. I work out with about five differnt guys that go to my gym and they help me out, All built and older who know what they are doing. At this point I have started building/supersetting both high, low and max weight.
My plans are to get back down to 185-190#'s Solid.
..............Any info and help I would apreciate............
To my question though,
Now that im doing weights I dont get sore as though I should? Is what im told. Ive never really been sore/sore since I've actauly started 2-3years ago. Like I said above I would out with sevral ppl including body builders and they all have diff opinions. Ive worked out to the point where I could not lift the bar off my chest sevral times. But I just feel like I can do it again the next day. I work out usauly two hrs at a time if not more.
Is this hurting me working out the same muscel every other day?
If I feel like I can do it, would it hurt to work out the same muscle 2 days in a row?
For ur info on some stats I got from the trainer up there who has taken my measurments, Think this is the body fat of each
These were taken a month in, w/no supplments and the before was taken at the beggining of the summer maybe early May. Just doing the little bit I have done I think I have made great inprovements. Ive been taking my own body measurments and they are looking better.
THANKS FOR READING MY BOOK IF U GOT THIS FAR
