I’ve been working out now since March 2012. I’ve been solely lifting the free weights at home. I’ve taken before and after pics and religiously weigh and measure myself the first of every month. My diet is pretty clean: no drinks with calories except the occasional glass of skim, no sodas this whole year, no caffeine, no candy ice cream or shit like that, no alcohol or drugs for well over a year. I don’t care much for taste, so I will be seen eating weird shit solely for the nutes like boiled eggs mixed with tuna, lettuce, onions, spinach and mustard. I’ve incorporated a lot of greens and veggies and fruits in my diet the last two months.
I found myself at 29 years old pushing 250 and hating life. This was in February 2012. My goal is basically to get laid, look good naked. And maybe compete in athletic events in the area like creek races and obstacle courses. I just want people to look my way and me not to feel ashamed.
I recently got pneumonia (I work in public health) and was sick all of August and most of September. I missed all those workouts, but stuck to my weighing and measuring. I record all of this and all my workouts. I have every workout recorded since 03/2012. I have recently got back into the groove and have been trying to implement some cardio. I basically jog as hard as I can, and sometimes walking is a must, between the two gates on our property. One two-way trip is 3/4 a mile up and down hills on gravel- like a dirt road in the country. These are Arkansas hills, not bullshitting u. I timed myself at 7:28 for the 3/4 mile. Not sure if that is decent bc of the hills or not, but I’m just content on recording it everytime and getting better.
I try to do this right after my weight lifting or on days when I don’t have time to lift.
Any comments or advice here would be crucial and appreciated.
I also have a log I cut out of a tree I axed down a few months ago. It’s about 5ft tall and close To a foot in diameter. It was alive so it’s pretty heavy, but it’s available. Would flipping this help me out?
Chest 48 in (titties)
Squat 120 1x4
Deadlift 160 1x4
Military press 90 1x3 reps
BP 120 1x3
I recorded the rest Of my body but won’t bore u with those.
Belly 46 7/8
Sq 190 3x5
Dl 210 3x5
Mp 120 3x5
BP 130 3x5
You can see I really focused on my legs. The pictures don’t show it though, but the numbers do. I figured if I could build up these bigger muscles, then they would burn more cals of my fat. Or something neat like that.
I’ve switched from my own workout scheme to doing parks 5x5. I’m probably gonna change it up soon. Anyways, can u please give me some advice on where to go from here. I just need an objective view. I’m happy with my results, but know I can so more.
Would u still say I’m in the phase where I can still cut fat AND build muscle? Should I focus on one at this point? If so, I think I should try building as much muscle as possible then worry about what far I will have leftover later. Sound good?
Btw, I really feel like the mp is a stand alone workout. I like doing it by itself rather than as a secondary to the BP. Anyone else feel this way? I do mine standing from off the ground in front of my head. I love them for some reason!!!
Pics: before is march 2012
After is July right before getting sick. Notice has changed. Feeling great and love the info here!!!
Oh I take Flameout and Biotest creatine. I have the gnc brand protein for now bc it was cheap. Will do better in the future!!!
