I’m 38 years old and have come to the realization that I’m FAT. I wasn’t always fat, in fact I was quite skinny in my youth. I now want to not be fat or skinny but massive. Here’s my basic stats, 6’4" 279 lbs (as of this morning, 310 as of Oct 1 2006). I got down to 250lbs from 310 2 years ago with Atkins and no exercise, I found this diet not life friendly and I was just a skinnier fat guy… I’ve changed my lifestyle to include at a minimum 40 minutes every morning of treadmill using a hills routing at around 3.8 MPH. I’ve broken both my kneecaps and running is out unless I’m on the wrestling mat. I also do another 40 minutes of elliptical trainer at my work and have started lifting in the last 2 weeks.
I also help coach my 11 year olds wrestling team and actively work out with them and I’ve been invited to start helping the heavyweight high school kids as well (GREAT exercise). I’ve banned my usual nightly 1lb bag of chips ahoy cookies from the house and have replaced them (and other unhealthy food) with the following:
Cardio 6:15 to 6:55 AM
Breakfast 7AM: 1 bag of plain oatmeal with a cup of milk and protein drink (starting pro complex tomorrow from a different brand)
Morning 9AM: Protein Bar - Detour Carmel Peanut
Morning 11AM: 4 boiled eggs
Lunch Cardio/weight lifting
Lunch 1PM: misc items either Sashimi, chicken breast or various other items and a salad
Afternoon 3 - 4 PM: Protein Bar - same as above
Wrestling 4:30 - 7PM
Dinner - misc items, chicken, steak etc with salad, misc carb and veggies
Daily Mannatech Sport, Mannatech Accelerator3, Mannatech Plus, Glucosamine 2000mg (damn knees).
Any help would be appreciated, I have 18 months to 40 and I want to be 10% body fat, MASSIVE and at least 19" biceps.
Curent cold measurements:
51" chest expanded
50" waist (full circumference currently wearing 44" pants in the male fat free valley)
Hit me with anything, workout suggestions, supplements, diet etc.
I’m reading through these currently:
I’ll post an up to date pic soon.
