Hi there, “Jack The Tank”
Do yourself a favour, purchase a few sets of light dumbbells (i.e. 4kg, 7.5kg, 10kg).
Next you should perform Tabata thrusters and clean & press 2-3 times a day (so morning and night, and throw in lunch if you’re feeling keen). Do this everyday, a session only takes 4mins.
Instructions for Tabata method can be found on this site (search “tabata”), but long story short, perform either the dumbbell thruster or clean & press for 8 sets of 20 seconds aiming to do as many reps as possible, with 10 seconds rest between sets, takes 4mins total to do.
The next part to the equation is fixing up your diet. You’re fat, and lazy, and ok I don’t hate you for the way you are, but you can at least try and help yourself by being able to identify what foods have carbohydrates in them, and not eat them, lol.
You should aim to have less then 20-30grams of carbohydrates a day. You can eat as much protein and essential fatty acids(healthy fat) as you like, but limit your carbohydrate intake to 20-30g a day.
Salad and cooked vegetebles are the exceptions to the carb rule - eat as much of them as you like when you’re feeling hungry but if you’re eating your fair share of protein and EFA’s you really shouldn’t be feeling hungry. Drink lots of water throughout the day as well - no softdrink, just lots of water, again it will also help fill you up if you’re feeling hungry. Protein shakes are great for meal replacement or to sip on during the day - make sure you buy one that is at least >97% protein. To help get your healthy fat intake up look at buying some type of fish/flax seed oil, T-Nation sells a good one called Flameout.
Good luck to ya, fatty ;)**[/quote]
Good point on the Tabatas… but every day, 2 or 3 times?
Good point regarding carbs… but less than 20-30g every day?
Both sounds a little excessive to me.
Besides, simply limiting carbs without controlling overall calories doesn’t make much sense. Any macronutrient in excess will be stored as fat. The only reasoning behind this I could think of is that by limiting carbs, the person would feel inclined to consume less food overall, perhaps because his favorite dishes are now ‘off limits’.
