im 16 years old 5’10" and 200-210lbs, problem is i need to loose some weight.
i stumbled across this site somehow and started reading, great facts and info on here.
i did a little bit of reading on these forums and found out at my age i shouldnt take anything like Alpha Male, but read rev-z and Flameout are good products.
i dont need/want to be and look like a body builder like most of you guys want and are, im more of a computer guy. i had bad astma when i was younger so i stayed away from sports. i just need to get rid of some of this weight
last summer i used to do a ton of biking and it helped a bit, but the winter was a bit cold and to much snow to ride and i dont belong to a gym or anything, then right after winter the days were hotter than hell for some reason (gotta love michigan weather)
what should i do? would taking rev-z (and maybe Flameout) and biking a lot like i used to help? i also am going to start to watch a bit closer what im eating, i know that has some to do with it[/quote]
Well, I don’t have a lot of knowledge of Flameout and Rez-V so I won’t comment on those. However, in regard to exercise my advice would be just stick to the basics: all kinds of cardio, whatever suits your fancy… swimming, running, biking, sports, etc.
As for your eating habits, I’d honestly say don’t worry about it. I know someone’s probably going to lampoon me for this, but I’ve always hated the idea of diets - and I frankly think they’re totally unnecessary at our age (I’m also 16).
The beautiful thing about being teenagers, is that our metabolism is kickass. I’ve never gone on any sort of diet for the time I’ve been training - in fact, I’ve made it a point recently to try and eat MORE, specifically meat, to gain mass.
Anyway, my philosophy has always been if you work hard and exercise you really shouldn’t have to worry about what you eat - of course, I’m not saying you should pig out on twinkies and ho-hos and not expect to get fat, I’m just saying that I believe mapping out a diet and counting carbs and calories and all that is just unnecessary for teenagers.
Exercise well and you should only need to use common sense in regard to your eating habits. I consider myself very strong for my size, and I’ve never gone on any sort of diet and I’m still very slender and muscular.
