28 years old. 6’2" 280 lbs (went from 295 to 280 in the past month). Former offensive lineman. I’m really not fat. I mean, I AM fat, but even if I lost 100 lbs I would still be a big dude. Like I said…think offensive lineman.
I have a good bit of flab all around. especially my belly. I have been pretty lazy and out of shape for the past few years.
Recently started dieting and going to the gym.
My typical diet:
-Fish Oil and mulitvitamin every morning.
-Fish oil again in afternoon.
breakfast - protein shake and oatmeal or hardboiled egg
snack - granola bar
lunch - turkey on whole wheat with mustard. triscuits. low-fat yogurt. apple.
snack - almonds
dinner - chicken breast with broccoli and green beans.
This is pretty much every day. I vary with lunch and dinner, but it’s typically some variation of this.
Gym routine (it’s pretty bad I know)
Day 1: 10 -15 min of cardio (elliptical)
various Chest and Back exercises(3 sets of 8 each; 3 different exercies per muscle group )
Day 2: 10 -15 min of cardio (elliptical)
various arm & Leg (3 sets of 8 each; 3 different exercies per muscle group )
(I tend to avoid lots of leg work. My legs are pretty sculpted already; large calfs and even a teardrop on thighs)
Day 3: 10 -15 min of cardio (elliptical)
I also add a 10 -20 steam on each of these days.
As you can see…my diet and workout is not very structured.
Any ideas on what I can change to get better results?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Will try to post pics soon.
