First off, a little background information about myself. I’m 19 years old, 6’1" and 210lbs, with around 25% body fat. Not too impressive, i know. I won’t deny it, i used smoke both cigs and weed, eat unhealthy food, and never took exercising seriously up until a month ago - so this is the result. But i’ve left all that behind me. I quit smoking a year ago, and finally gave up weed ten months later. About a month ago i picked up the Bowflex Power Pro, and started eating healthy - about 1500 cal/day, with 60/20/20 carb/prot/fat ratio.
So i’ve been following the ‘body building program’ on the Bowflex for the last month, which takes up about 40 minutes every 3 days out of 4. For those who are unfamiliar with it, specifics are attached below. So far, i’m satisfied with the results - i’ve only lost 10lbs, but i also gained a decent amount of muscle. In addition to that, i also took up jogging, and purchased the Bowflex leg attachment, which i’m going to put to use after i move next week.
Problem is, i lack the knowledge to piece all of this together. The body building program doesn’t make use of the leg attachment, and only the “Bowflex body leanness program” does. What’s the problem, you might ask? Well, the program looks too damn easy. It’s a one-day-on-one-day-off dealie, only takes 25-30 min to complete, and according to the manual, cannot be used with other exercises, such as jogging. Now, i want go push myself real hard, and this isn’t what i had in mind.
So would someone here mind helping me design my own program? I want results, and i’m willing to work hard to achieve them. If working out for three hours a day is what it takes, then that’s what i’ll do. I just want to make sure i’m not wasting my time with an unefficient program.
