I’m 6’3" 255lbs and 18yrs old. I’m just now getting out of my sedentary lifestyle and began working out two weeks ago. My main goal is weight loss right now. Would GVT + mucho protein be helpful for me? If not, any directions/links you could point me in. Thanks. peace.
Read the following article, and all the links contained therein:
GVT is a great workout. However, I would get a solid six months of training under your belt before engaging in that. Try the tried and tested 5x5 prgram for a month to get back in the game. Stick with compound exercises such as: Deadlifts, Squats, Barbell Rows, Chin Ups, Weighted Dips, Bench Presses, Overhead lifts.
I’m shorter than you (5’10"), but I basically did what you are thinking of doing, and it really got me nowhere fast. 5x5 has been a much kinder program to me while attempting fat loss than other, higher volume programs. Of course, I think I probably just respond better to higher weight and lower volume. Unless you’re on a deadline, you can always just try it for three weeks, see how it works for you, and change if necessary.
I’d go with a more basic training program, sticking with bigger compound exercises. bench, squats, deads, etc.
If your goal is weight loss, nutrition is a BIG part of it so get your diet in order. Something like the t-dawg diet should work good for you. Read the aforementioned article, and if your looking for some more ‘basic’ info, try my website where i put links up for many of the best t-mag articles.
