I?ve been hitting the gym pretty hard for the last 8 months or so, but I feel like I?m loosing motivation. My bench had gone from about 180 to 275 (hit that 3 times as a last set last week). I?ve made gains in strength in all other areas as well, but I still have a belly. I do cardio about 3 or 4 times a week, when I hit the gym.
My arms are bigger, I?m stronger but I still feel fat. I?ve lost about 10lbs scale weight but I?m getting frustrated with the fat loss aspect.
I lift heavy as I can, I?m training major muscle groups, compound movements. I?m getting enough calories, and I?m just frustrated.
My history isn?t good for fitness, as a little kid I was fed a lot of processes carbs, not much protein so I was a fat kid. When I got my first desk job I bubbled up to about 240 (I?m 5?8?). I?m at 195 now, and I?m solid, but FUCK I want my gut to go away.
Someone give me some encouragement here. I live in Michigan and it?s getting gray and cold here so that maybe another factor. I need to keep going through the winter, and not fall into the habit of not working out in the winter it?s what has killed my progress every year.
